Tatum Auden: One Month.

Little late on this, but Tatum is now one month old. (Actually: one month, four days.) I am loving every minute of this mom business. Even those moments that I don't love so much in the moment...I love them later. Because I know how much I'll miss them someday. I know that sounds super sappy and ridiculous, but it's true, so I don't really care. She's the best.

She's getting so big. I see it mostly in the size of her head. Sad, but true. Sometimes I just look at that big ol' head and want to cry, because she's groooowing. (She doesn't actually have a big head. Just...bigger than it used to be. And I like to tease her about it.)

She's also dealing with a pretty bad bout of baby acne right now. (HAHA. Pimplefaced!) Seriously, though. She's super pimply.

She's getting more "aware" now. And smiley! She had her first "real" smiles yesterday. Josh was the recipient of both. (I may have cried a little.) It was nice to see how happy it made him, though. Seriously, so sweet. And she has smiled at me a couple of times today now, too. So we're even! : )

Seriously? Holy cow, guys. I can't even tell you how much I love this baby. I mean...look at that ^ face. I DIE. For real.

Speaking of that face, though. Josh and I always talk about her forehead wrinkles. Because, let's face it, they are hilarious. I mean, why are they so high on her head? And she ALWAYS has them. It's great.

Siiiigh. In love!

Anecdote: Tatum fell asleep in her Santa outfit earlier, and Josh carried her in the room and told me, "Looks like Santa's going to be a little too sleepy to deliver the presents this year!" Oh, Josh. You're hilarious. : )


{What? Don't you let your babies eat candy canes?
