Wow- how has it already been a month!
Happy 1 month birthday!
This month has been a roller coaster. Daddy and I had no idea the amount of love that you would add to our lives.
We’ve traveled the world together, set and met academic and career goals, yet sitting on the couch cuddling with you brings a level of fulfillment and contentment that we could have never expected!
We joke about starting calculus classes next week and college applications the week after, but the truth is we are just excited to watch you grow, learn and explore. Just this week you’ve discovered how to get your fingers into your mouth, and how to escalate the volume of your screams to get IMMEDIATE attention!
You’ve taught us a few things too. Giving you 6 ounces of formula means that we’ll be wearing at least 3 of them in a short amount of time. Diaper changes MUST. BE. QUICK. Or, everyone and everything will end up damp! And, you are not a morning person. God bless Daddy, for taking morning duty and getting you dressed, face washed and prepped for the first feeding, because you scream the entire way through it- and then promptly go back to sleep for another 3-4 hours!
We are more tired and more in love then we’ve ever been in our entire lives, and we wouldn’t change a minute of it (ok, well maybe that horrific Boston Marathon bomber!).
Everyone says you are the most beautiful baby they’ve ever seen- and we couldn’t agree more! Those big blue eyes make us melt every time. You already have Daddy wrapped around your tiny finger, and I’m guessing you’ll have already figured that out by the time you are able to read this! He’s already nervous that you immediately grab the diamond necklace he gave me as a wedding present or the bracelet he gave me for your birth when I pick you up- you’ve got great taste already (you SO get that from me!).
It was a long, challenging 9 month wait to meet you, but it was worth every second. I’m enjoying every cuddle I can and can’t wait to see what the next month holds.
