I am officially throwing my name in the hat for Baby of the Year. Here’s why I believe I should win.

First, clearly I am adorable. Try to argue with me – I dare you.


Second, I’m five and a half weeks old and I’m sleeping anywhere from 6-7 hours a night regularly. Last night I slept 9 hours because I was feeling generous and deemed Mom-lady worthy of a nighttime reprieve. 


Third, I’ve put on two pounds since birth. I’m now in the double digits, and that’s without eating throughout the night.


Finally…did I mention I’m cute?


I’ve got this title in the bag.

31DaysmdThis month, I’m linking up with The Nesterfor this 31 Day series as I survive the newborn haze of sleepless nights, endless nursing, and squeezing in life in twenty minute increments throughout the day. If you want to receive the posts directly in your email inbox, just leave your email address in the box on the sidebar, and subscribe so you don’t miss a post!

I’ll share photos every day, some of them good, and some of them mediocre, because baby leaves me little time to worry about taking and editing the perfect photos.

I’ll also be sharing my daughter’s thoughts, as dictated to me telepathically while she nurses, because she has informed me that she is a mind ninja, and I am merely her portal to the outside world.

Her words, not mine.
