Well, another month (and then some - I'm late posting this) has passed us quickly by, and we are still loving being this tiny girl's parents.
Annabelle is as happy as ever, and she's *almost* always in a great mood. She cries when she's hungry or wet, but I would too if I couldn't use my words and needed help. She did have one pretty fussy day recently when we seemed unable to calm her down much, and unfortunately we were out in public (and with friends!) then, so it was a pretty great parenting test. We don't get too many of those, so I suppose it was time.
We're still calling her many nicknames, but the ones that are sticking around the most are: Anna Banana, A-Belle, Hungry Hungry Hippo, Annabellina, Stinkerbelle, Smellybelle, and Waaannabelle. I've also started calling her Cheeky lately... which stemmed from Chickadee, and then Chickie... and somehow morphed into Cheeky, which is appropriate, I'd say... have you seen her little cheeks? Totes adorbs.
Annabelle is now wearing her size 0-3 month clothing and has been wearing some 3 month outfits too because we bought Christmas themed clothes for her in that size before we knew how teeny she'd be. She fills them out enough to not look ridiculous, though, so that's good. Her disposable diapers are still size one, but she's in cloth now full time except when sleeping. Her little fluff butt is so cute!
Seeing Annabelle grow, develop, and change every single day is amazing. She is quirky and has definitely started showing us her spunky little personality. She smiles on command and when she wants our attention. She coos loudly if we're looking at our computer screen but wants us to focus on her (smart girl!), and she poses for pictures... sometimes.
For size reference, here she is at one day old, one month old, two months old, and three in the same newborn size sleeper. We had to officially retire this sleeper after the photo, but I tucked this one away for safe keeping. ;-)
