Well, I’m sitting here on the couch
[listening to Sister Hazel], once again, letting you sleep on my chest…soaking
in every minute that you snuggle me like this [it's my favorite]. I know that
our days like this are limited. Too soon I’ll be enjoyin’ your next stage,
chasing you around the yard & spending countless hours playing with Match
Box cars on the deck daddy built. I can’t believe how fast our first month with
you has flown by. In this first month you’ve already changed so much little
one. For one, you’ve gained about 2 pounds and grown 1.25 inches! Your hair is
getting thicker in the back and on the sides, but you’re a little bald up top.
Your dad has commenced to calling you “Harold” from Harold & the Purple
Crayon (don’t worry, he’s a cute little cartoon boy). Other nicknames include:
Little Buddy, ‘Mos, Stink, and Blondie. Currently you wake up one - two times a night to
eat and mama usually falls asleep with you in the chair for at least an hour.
Those hours are hours that I will forever cherish. I don’t even mind that I
haven’t gotten to sleep through the night for weeks now. You grunt and make
noises all the time. We think you’re going to be a talker! And, I swear you’re
the gassiest infant that has ever been. It seems that it doesn’t matter what I
eat – everything messes with your little tummy. Sorry bud! We do get a kick out
of your old man farts…all I can say is, “you get it from your daddy.” (: Just
recently you’ve started staring at lights. Once you lock your eyes on a light
we can move your little body every which way and you’ll crane your little head around to keep your gaze on the light. You sleep better
on your tummy than your back [just like mama]. And, you’ve rolled over twice!
