Yesterday Miss Elle turned one month! Sam and I have learned so much as first time parents, we have worked hard however when I look at the growth our daughter has accomplished this month I am astonished and humbled. If we have worked hard to learn and grow she has worked even harder.
Elizabeth Enck Kirkendall currently weighs 10 pounds 6 ounces. I have no idea how long she is, I will work on that for the ensuing months :). Not only has Elle grown over the past month she has discovered a few of her favorite things...
She loves being fed, here she is after her lunch. Happy as a clam.
Most of all Elle likes her swing and the ceiling fan. No one can settle her like the swing and no one has received more smiles from Littles than the fan in our living room. We are excited for the day when she really does favor human faces of large inanimate objects!

However, some our favorite things are mornings at home, a return from a long day's work, and watching her new developments.
We cannot imagine life without Elle, as we reflect on the past month I am reminded of what it means to grow. Already she inspires us, may we continue to learn from this precious child.
