1 month

by Dana on March 9, 2012

Only 1 month old and she already knows how to Robocop.
That’s my girl.

Seriously. It’s been a month since I had a baby?
I guess it feels like a month.
And then it doesn’t.
And then I look back at hospital pics and realize how much Clara has already changed.
She’s more alert at times but also more fussy.
Her crusty cord fell off revealing her tiny belly button.
She continues to sleep great at night. She went for 6 hours last night! Her new record!
She only likes the car seat when the car is moving (I forgot babies can be like that)
Overall, she’s still a cute little thing and a fairly good baby.

Of course a girl can only sit up for so long.
I can’t blame her.
Life is exhausting.

Read about each month of Clara’s first year here:
1 month
2 months
3 months
4 months
5 months
6 months
7 months
8 months
9 months
10 months
11 months

Oh she’s so cute – amazing that first month. Here I am and it’s 5 months since my baby started to rock my world – still feels like yesterday and at the same time like he has been here forever. Happy 1 month :)

4 Michelle March 9, 2012 at 9:23 am

14 Lynette March 9, 2012 at 10:35 am

what a cutie pie! I can’t believe it’s been a whole month. That’s good. It means mine is getting closer to coming. :)


15 Benedicte March 9, 2012 at 10:36 am

How cute!

You are so lucky that she sleeps that well! Is she sleeping in her crib? maybe a bassinet? I am due in June and I would love to know how you accomplished this amazing thing!


16 laura @ on{thelaundry}line March 9, 2012 at 10:36 am

Oh goodness, what a cute little squish. I love her little socks! I had some like that for my little Olivia and I shoved them on til it was embarrassing how undersized they were, ha! I’m pretty sure that one was just born too, but here she was today pulling her sister’s socks out and trying to put them on b/c her feet were cold. Why do babies grow up so fast?!


17 Nikki March 9, 2012 at 10:47 am

What a cutie. Days go by so quickly and slowly at the same time. Thank goodness for photos to capture all the changes.


18 Nicole March 9, 2012 at 11:07 am

What a doll, my little one is 2 weeks old on Monday, I cannot believe how quickly time is passing!

Love the pics, they are great!


19 Leigh anne March 9, 2012 at 11:13 am

20 Valerie March 9, 2012 at 11:24 am

Clara is incredibly adorable! Love those pictures !!!


21 rachel March 9, 2012 at 11:40 am

Dana, your kids are so cute! and I love seeing that you have the ikea high-chair….. That thing is AWESOME.


22 clara March 9, 2012 at 11:42 am

Carinissima!!! And she also sleeps… Great!
It’s amazing how much they change. Today it’s the 2nd birthday of Alessio and I made a collage with his photos in these 2 years. He has changed everyday!
Have a great w-end!


23 Steph at Modern Parents Messy Kids March 9, 2012 at 11:53 am

Awww! So sweet – and whoohoo for 6 hours!


24 Christie March 9, 2012 at 11:57 am

25 Rosa March 9, 2012 at 12:17 pm

Desde Barcelona, esta preciosidad de niña se ve como un dulce osito de peluche. Muchas felicidades y gracias por enseñarnos un poquito de tu familia. Un abrazo


26 Stacie March 9, 2012 at 12:18 pm

27 celine March 9, 2012 at 12:26 pm

28 chante March 9, 2012 at 12:42 pm

So gorgeous. Love the “exhausted” pic at the end.


29 Julie March 9, 2012 at 1:50 pm

That baby fix made my day ;D


30 katie Evans March 9, 2012 at 2:33 pm

It’s been a month???? Oh my how time flies. She is just as adorable as ever! I’m almost done with her sweet pictures. I can’t wait to show you. Did you get some good shots?


31 nancy March 9, 2012 at 2:55 pm

Oh my goodness, Clara is just the sweetest little babe!! Congrats – you have a darling family!
I thought you hadn’t updated in a long time, but it was all my fault for not changing your address on my blog. Glad to know you are updating more often than I thought.
Have a joyful weekend.


32 Rina March 9, 2012 at 2:56 pm

O what a sweety pie :)

Only one little thing…babies so young should not be sitted in a chair like that. Her back is not yet ready for holding the weight.


33 the sleepy time gal March 9, 2012 at 2:59 pm

so, so, happy about your little one.


34 Katia March 9, 2012 at 3:37 pm

Che bambina adorabile!!!!
Auguri a te, alla piccola Clara e ai due monelli più grandi da un’amica italiana.


35 Lauren March 9, 2012 at 4:38 pm

OK that last pic made me giggle. Poor little thing, saying “uh hello Mom, help here?” Enjoy the newborn phase with all its challenges :) Although 6 hours, awesome!


36 becky March 9, 2012 at 4:51 pm

too cute for words…especially the last shot…;)


37 Carmen Russell March 9, 2012 at 4:52 pm

She is so cute,I wish her all the best in life.


38 Carrie March 9, 2012 at 5:16 pm

ADORABLE! Isn’t it devastating that they grow up so fast??


39 Spark*Amy March 9, 2012 at 5:19 pm

What a cutie! And her hair looks so dark! Were your other 2 like that? Maybe you’ll get your brunette after all!


40 Anna March 9, 2012 at 5:33 pm



41 Melody March 9, 2012 at 5:47 pm

Those pictures, and that narrative, are cracking me up! You are so great at capturing the moment. I had all but forgotten that both of my girls (age 7 and 3) used to be a little tippy like that too! So sweet. And little. And tippy. : ) Thanks for the giggle.


42 Kathy Laird March 9, 2012 at 7:38 pm

Wow Dana! She is so adorable! Have lots of fun with her, they grow up too fast!


43 Max March 9, 2012 at 10:41 pm

Heheh so cute!! She has so much hair! Did the other babies lose their hair or did they keep it? Vince had SO much white/see-through hair and it rubbed off within days and he was bald for ages.


44 Annelize Webb March 10, 2012 at 1:11 am

My goodness, she is adorable! I am dying to have another little one…this is surely increasing the broodiness for me!!!

I am also very impressed that you are still updating your blog so much with a small baby around….please tell your secret for all that energy ;)


45 Sarah K. March 10, 2012 at 2:06 am

SO cute! I have a photo not unlike that last one up at work of my daughter holding my son at about that same age. He started out propped up and slowly fell over. He looks bewildered she’s just thrilled to be holding baby brother. It makes me smile every time I see it. Congrats on one month!


46 Tessa March 10, 2012 at 6:08 am

Adorable , just adorable x


47 Jenny March 10, 2012 at 9:30 am

oh so cute!


48 VickiT March 10, 2012 at 11:10 am

Oh my gosh. What a cutie pie. Congrats on making it that first month. I do remember those early days after my babies were born, especially my last pregnancy since it was twin boys. LOL

And today (march 10th) is actually the one month birthday of my adorable little Granddaughter too.


49 Gabi Cooper March 10, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Wow, I can’t believe it either! It seems like it was just last week. Anyway, Congrats! She’s darling.
Btw, I’m expecting my third child and I’m due in less than 5 weeks. I don’t know if it is a girl or a boy but, if it is a girl I will keep an eye out for your tips and ideas on baby stuff for inspiration!! Looking forward to some. Gabrielle.


50 Mary Ann B March 10, 2012 at 3:25 pm

Lovely photos of Clara! She is growing fast! before you know it, she’ll be chasing the rest around the house! thank you for sharing her!


51 Andrea March 10, 2012 at 3:45 pm

Everytime I come by your blog lately… it REALLY makes me want to make another little blonde baby of our own. We have two and have been on the fence about a third. Your cute little Clara makes me think 3 is a good idea!


52 Jodie March 10, 2012 at 10:02 pm

I have an 11 week old, and have decided that babies put you into some weird time warp. Everything feels so slow and fast at the same time.


53 allison March 11, 2012 at 1:48 am

she is so sweet and precious, dana! congrats again!


54 Pabalu March 11, 2012 at 6:26 am

55 Katy Dill March 11, 2012 at 8:17 am

She looks delicious as homemade strawberry jam. I’d eat her up.


56 Olivia March 11, 2012 at 9:33 pm

It’s insane how fast the days add up. Clara is a sweetie!

My youngest will be passing her first trip around the sun next week! Wasn’t I just holding her tiny 7 lb, 6 oz body in my arms? *sigh*


57 suzy March 12, 2012 at 12:45 am

sweetness! congratulations on your little miracle!


58 lebo March 12, 2012 at 4:44 am

60 Resmi March 13, 2012 at 12:26 am

Oh, she is soooo cute! She has definitely grown and I just love her hair… :-) :-) And how are you now?



61 annie March 13, 2012 at 2:37 pm

She’s so cute! This month has gone by sooooo fast!

Fussyness—-from my experience is momma’s diet. Have you tried eliminating dairy?!?!?!! SOLVED EVERYTHING for us!

She’s a cutie!


62 Chris V March 13, 2012 at 8:28 pm

You serisouly have the cutest kids in the entire world!!!
Except for mine of course….. ;o)


63 Chris V March 13, 2012 at 8:29 pm
