Zero to month one with little Emerson was great! Chris did a lot of the work since I was recovering from having her. He changed a zillion diapers, cooked, cleaned, did laundry, etc. None of this was new to him except the diaper part, he always helps around the house. Emerson slept well and we had to wake her to feed. I initially thought that she would be up crying all night because people would say, prepare to get no sleep, but she hardly cried. The three of us honestly fell into a perfect little routine. Often we would just lay and watch her because it was so surreal that she was ours and we were just that lucky and blessed.
From the beginning she was an active little girl. We kind of expected this based on the comments from the doctors while she was in the belly. She lifted her head her first day on Earth! To the surprise of the nurse. In her first week she tried to walk up our bellies when we were holding her. She made funny squealing and grunt sounds often while she slept, she was literally the noisiest baby ever, it was hilarious. She made all types of funny faces as well.
There were so many little things that happened leading up to her first month it was just so fun to experience.
