I seriously can’t believe that Baby Riley turned 1 month old on Thursday. Where on earth did the time go??? I swear I’m still getting used to not being pregnant. It took me two weeks to start sleeping on my stomach again and I feel guilty for drinking a glass of wine. I often have to stop and tell myself, it’s okay to go back to being you again, so not only am I adjusting to life as a mom I’m also adjusting to life without a baby in my belly. With that being said, I think it’s easy to lose track of time when you’re trying to adjust to such a drastic change in your life. One thing I’ve been working hard at is trying to treasure every minute with Baby Riley even the stressful ones because I know my little baby is growing and changing with every passing day and before I know it she’s not going to be Baby Riley anymore.
So each month I am going to take pictures of Riley and write her a note from her dad and I sharing stories and milestones of her development that month. At the end of the first year I’m going to have a photo book made that I’ll give to her when she gets older.
While this is for Riley I wanted to share our journey during Riley’s first month. We are so proud of our little monkey!
Here are some additional pictures I took of Baby Riley. I hope you enjoy 🙂
