One Month

Drew -

You are ONE month old.  This month has been the best month of our lives.  Your Moms love you more than words can say!   You have brought us more joy over the past month than we ever could have imagined possible.  You certainly were worth all of the hard work and the long wait!

In your first month of life, you celebrated your First Thanksgiving - having you brought a whole new meaning to being thankful.   We have learned so much about you.  When we swaddle you, we MUST leave your arms up as you love to have your hands near your face.  You aren't a real big fan of your carseat - you don't look really comfortable in it - however, you like to ride in the car.  You listen intently when someone talks to you and you have begun to smile at us when we talk to you.  You love music and lights and will focus on your glow worm and your ocean sound maker when we play them for you.  You really are a very low key baby and hardly fuss.  When you do, you are very easily soothed.  We often talk about what a good boy you are.

You wore newborn clothes and diapers for this whole month.  We have just moved you to size 1 diapers and some of your 0 - 3 clothes are starting to fit you.  At your one month pediatricians appointment, you weighed  8 pounds 6 ounces and were 23 inches long. You are in the 95th percentile for height and the 15th percentile for weight.

We are looking forward to celebrating Christmas with you during your second month of life and we can't wait to introduce you to Mom's family in Minnesota at Christmas. 

We love you more than you know, our Little Man!  Happy one month birthday!

I did the same thing for all 3 of my kids, Carrie... a letter when we found out we were pregnant, a letter about what was going on what they were doing on their month birthday and then a final "wrap up" letter for their 1 year old birthday. All of these are added to the scrapbook that I have made for each from birth - first I am so glad that I did it. It is amazing when you have multiple children how your memory gets all swooshed! Way to go!

How are you recovering from childbirth? How are you feeling physically?
