Aaryn turned one month old the day before Thanksgiving. I cannot believe how quickly time has flown by!
Over the last month, she has filled our hearts with so much love and joy! The more she grows, the more excited I become to see how her personality will develop as she gets older.
It has been a bit difficult adjusting to becoming a family of 7. I have had literally no downtime whatsoever. It’s been really rough having to take her out the house so early in the mornings to drop the kids off at school, and then again in the afternoon since we are out of the house for nearly two hours picking everyone up! While a lot of things have gotten back to normal around the house, there are a few things that I have yet to start doing again.
Like grocery shopping.
Yep, my cabinets and fridge are still bare. I did do Wal-Mart’s grocery delivery service, but in all honesty, we have been winging it from night to night (which is a lot harder itself). I am so paranoid about having her out so much in the cold and at the stores that I just haven’t jumped into that yet. But I plan on getting back to it. Until then, it’s grocery delivery for a least a few more weeks.
Aaryn is still under 7lbs. While I am loving how tiny she is still, I’d love it if she fit into her clothing! Even some of the newborn clothing (and preemie clothes) are too big still. I know pretty sure she will be growing like weeds out of everything, so I guess I need to be careful what I ask for!
Knowing that she is our last baby has made me a sentimental nutcase so to speak!
