Lily is One Month Old!

Filed in PersonalTags: Family, Fatherhood, Photos

Yesterday, Lily turned one month old! Where has the time gone already? To mark the event, Lily has a new, One-Month Old photo album.

It is amazing to see how much she has changed and developed, in just one month. Here she is, a few hours after birth:

Lily is getting more and more expressive. She is also getting more and more red hair!

Lily is still slowly learning about her arms and legs and hands and feet. She is getting really good at sucking on her fist, and occasionally, she will figure out how to suck on her thumb.

Finally, this last photo was taken a few days ago, but it (finally) shows just how well our cute, adorable, sweet, little Lily can demonstrate the Bennett Lip:

Catching Up On Lily Pics

I apologize for being remiss in keeping everyone updated on Lily's pictures. I have been taking them, just haven't uploaded recently. As of this morning, I should be all caught up. Below are some highlights from the most recent pictures added to her Newborn Set (Tuesday brings the beginning of her One-Month Old set!).

Daddy's chest remains Lily's favorite place to sleep. Lily is always so kissable, but especially so when she snuggles her head right up underneath Daddy's chin.

On this day, Lily had another new experience: her first bath at home. Here, she is cozy, comfy, and clean after her bath.

Certain Bennett genes are incredibly prominent with Lily; for instance, she definitely inherited the Bennett Lip. This picture is the closest I've come to documenting her ability to demonstrate it.

It is a bit blurry, but here is Lily demonstrating her adorable "just woke up, disoriented, and hungry" look. This is the look that I see everytime I wake her up to change her diaper before her feeding.

Usually, Lily remains a very peaceful sleeper.

But this look is usually accompanied by various forms of grunting - and it usually indicates either that she is taking after her Daddy, passing gas, or that she is leaving her Daddy another diaper gift.

Often, Lily likes to lay awake, chomping away on her binky. Though, as she learns that her hands are attached and that she can control them, she alternates between trying to hold her binky in her mouth, and pushing it out - the latter resulting in a very ticked-off baby!
