It’s hard to believe, but here we are with Veronika a full month old already.
“Look at how she’s looking at you!” marveled the woman at the toy store when I stopped in today, and I peeked down at my little girl in her stroller. Indeed, her wide-open eyes were laser-focused on me; I get to be a celebrity a little longer.
It was a good reminder to take the day and just pause: to take stock, to stop and look closely at her, and to see how much she’s changed in one month already.
If you do the same, simply stop and watch your baby for a little while. I placed Veronika down on her cricket blanket and just watched.
The eyes are more alert.
The expressions are more varied.
The hand gestures are more deliberate.
And of course the snuggles and time together are still just as wonderful.
What is your baby’s behavior like at the one-month milestone? I’d love to hear in the comments!
