one month

Alaina officially hit the one month mark today, and boy, what a month it has been for her! 

Since March 13, 2012, Alaina has left the womb, slept a lot, found her voice, developed a bit of a temper, studied at two separate Italian cooking classes, drank a few hundred gallons of milk, met her grandma, discovered the joys of the baby bjorn, 


attempted to hold her head up, experimented with smiling, climbed two towers in Lucca, 


been carried on "lovers lane" in Cinque Terre,  


seen the leaning tower of Pisa, 


gotten stuck in the rain near the Palazzo Vecchio, 


and shopped in the San Lorenzo market in Florence. 


I'd say that so far she's pretty good at living life to the fullest. 

Can't wait to see what next month has in store.


  1. OH MY GOODNESS! She is such an amazing traveller! And even more amazing to me is that her Mamma and Daddy have found such gracious energy to do all of that sightseeing in her first month. Alaina - keep on embracing every opportunity... that's what life is all about! And BIG cheers to your parents for being such wonderful tour guides. You are a lucky little one, that's for sure!

  2. I think she wins "most spectacular first month of life" ever. :)

  3. You all are amazing! Your kiddos are going to be so well rounded. Keep up the good work! -Jenna
