Yesterday Grace turned 1 month old. I can't believe how quickly the last month has flown by. Today I am grateful for what a good baby she has turned out to be. I'm not saying that my other two were not good babies, they just weren't as easy to care for as Gracie has been. I realize that a lot of it probably has to do with the fact that I'm not new at this, I'm more relaxed now than I was the first couple times. One major difference is that Gracie is a good sleeper, meaning that she will sleep for longer than an hour and a half at a time. Even though it doesn't seem like that much during the nighttime, I really enjoy it during the day. She doesn't fuss very much, and when she does she is pretty easily pacified. Even when she is being smothered by her brother and sister, she just goes with the flow. I can't say how much I needed a baby like this! Derrick and Abbie are great kids, but they have been a handful lately. At least one of my children has decided not to give me a hard time!
