Catelynn gave birth to daughter Novalee Reign on January 1st. Along with fiance Tyler Baltierra, the two have already had quite the year. For the first time in their lives, they're parenting a baby girl and experiencing all the firsts. From taking her home from the hospital, to watching as she learns their faces, it's all been an adventure. And Catelynn gave us all the latest.

"It's just amazing and I absolutely love her," she tells The Stir exclusively. "Actually getting to parent this one and be home with her, it's absolutely amazing.The love that I have for her is crazy."

Ever since she and Baltierra gave up their daughter Carly in their initial episode of 16 and Pregnant, we've watched the teen couple cope with adoption struggles, issues with their parents, and balancing work and school. And now, they're getting to do what they've always dreamed of doing: parenting.

Nova is now only two months old, but she's reaching all her major milestones. "She's reaching for faces, wanting to touch your face, and coo, and make noises, and smile," she adds. "Instead of being a newborn and sleeping all day, she's a lot of fun."

One face little Nova definitely recognizes? Dad."He's so good with her," Catelynn says. "She's definitely a Daddy's girl."

It didn't take long, but she's definitely won him over. As for Mom, the parenting of a newborn has come with its own share of excitements, and one big drawback.

"The biggest challenge for me has been the lack of sleep," Catelynn admits. "I used to be such a big sleeper. I could sleep until noon every day if I wanted before she was here."

Now, not so much. Little Nova has become priority in Mom and Dad's lives and she's always coming first. Even when it gets pretty difficult, like during breastfeeding.

"[Breastfeeding] is hard work," Catelynn says. "If you can do it, do it." Luckily she has one great mentor. Catelynn admits that she often asks Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry, who breastfed baby Lincoln, about how to handle the struggles. "Sometimes you just want to throw it the towel, but you can't do that. I'd miss it!"

It's certainly been a whirlwind year for the family-of-three, and it's getting more exciting. Tune in to MTV on March 23 at 10 p.m. for the premiere of Teen Mom OG.
