Little Miss

{A Letter for Brynn}

We are getting our night time routine down this week. All but one day, you only woke up once between 10 and 6am. I tried to have your dad wake up with you but he really struggled to get you back to sleep so I ended up waking up anyway. When I first start rocking you, your little body is very tense. Every couple of minutes you will let out a high-pitched squeak and relax a bit. I am not sure what this is, gas moving through your belly or sleep moving in. Then you will close your eyes for a long time. But your body is still tense. In the beginning, I thought you were asleep, but it was a trick! Now I wait for your whole body to melt into my chest, like a bag of sand. Only then can I lay you in your bassinet. You truly are a puzzle. But I love that I know so much about you after only a month. Even though it has been a hard couple weeks, it is amazing to watch you grow. Today you rolled from your belly to your back. At four weeks. You are so strong. I cannot wait to see what this year brings.

Here you are lifting your head so high.


  1. Sounds like Ruari at that age... so tense... had to rock her until she was COMPLETELY asleep... then, SLOWLY lay her down. :) Glad it's better!

  2. She is so adorable! And? Your daughter's name is Brynn. Now I know you have good taste ;)
