The day Fayrouz was born feels like it was a loooong time ago. And at the same time.. how is she a month old already?? It’s been a blur of night shifts, feedings, diapers, burping / spit up.. and pauses of time-stopping cuddles.
Fayrouz is curious, strong & resilient, the best snuggler, and assertive. She loves: curling up on mama or daddy’s chest • making the Blue Steel face • her red guitar rattle 🎸• listening to the nature track on her swing/chair • going on walks & being outside • forehead tickles • milk. lots & lots of milk.
Fayrouz hates: having to change her clothes and therefore also bathtime • sleeping in her bassinet • figuring out this whole digesting-without-grunting thing 🤷🏻♀️ Fayrouz learned how: to lift her head up high - strong neck! and might also (accidentally? 🤔) headbutt you if you ignore her polite milk requests • to make dolphin & horse sounds 🐬🐎 • to sleep for longer hours at night (whooo!) except not always in her bassinet (booo!) • to pose for a passport photo •
It’s my one month too! of being a mom (to an external baby)! Maryam loves: having Fayrouz curl up on my chest • those sing-song solo conversations that she does while she's sleeping • Fayrouz smiles (I don’t even care that they’re probably still reflexes.. they’re the best!!) • watching the (very many) expressions she makes • watching Fayrouz & Tyler together 🥰
Maryam learned: how to do most things one-armed • how to slooow down.. and not expect to get much done each day.. looking forward to long walks again though, and getting out & about more • the importance of quickly doing otherwise elusive tasks in random pockets of time. Like brushing teeth, going to the bathroom, or making a superfast snack 🏃🏻♀️ • that everything is so contradictory now, especially time. stagnant & repetitive, but also.. a whole month is gone! slow down, time & slow down, little girl 👶🏻🙏🏼✨ #onemonth #fayrouzmarie #babiesarefunny
