Lotus is 1 month old

We hit the one month mark and the baby acne is in full force, along with the start of some random adorable baby smiles.

This is her nest on the couch, made up of two pillows and blankets. We decided to try not buying a single piece of baby equipment and see how it goes. I was curious to see what item we cave and buy first after she’s here. So far we haven’t bought anything, although a baby swing did slip into my mind momentarily.

It’s, of course, exhausting to hold a baby all day and night but between Jason and I (and Isaac too!) and a few winks on the baby nest, we are managing it.

    I’ve had the same swing for all 3 of my kids and it was my savior at some times. I don’t know how you’re doing it without baby items! Where does she sleep? Where did all your other babies sleep? No crib?
    Happy 1 month Lotus!

    It has been nice actually to have a baby without the invasion of baby “stuff” that usually comes with it. We have always co-slept with our babies right in the bed between Jason and I and it works well (for us).
    Xander saw a picture of a crib and asked what it was. LOL…He had no idea. He said the best he could come up with was a bunch of baby gates were tied together for some reason. We will need to break out the baby gates eventually, living in a split level house.
