One Month

Jack -

You are ONE month old today. It seems like just yesterday that we were waiting to meet you and now you have been here for a whole month.  You truly have completed our family and we are over the moon excited to be the Moms of two boys.  We are thankful each and every day that you are a part of our family.

This month we enjoyed all of the wonderful end of Summer and beginning of Fall activities that living in New England gives us.  You made your first trip peach and blackberry picking, took an overnight getaway, went to the beach, and celebrated Aunt Becky's and Mama's birthdays.  You were busy in your first month of life!

Your big brother Drew absolutely adores you.  He loves to hug and kiss you and sing Rock a bye Baby to you.  When you are crying, he is right there to tell you that everything is OK.  Drew also makes sure he supervises your diaper changes, baths and clothing changes.  He already sticks up for you like a big brother should.  We can't wait to see how your relationship as brothers grows and develops.

You are starting to really recognize voices and you do a great job listening to people talk to you.  You like to watch the leaves on the trees blow in the wind and you seem fascinated with shadows on the wall.  You have shown us that you have a bit of a temper and can be a bit fussy, but we work hard to soothe you in any way we can. 
You eat a TON and you are growing like a weed to prove it!

You wore newborn clothes and diapers for about 2 weeks.  You grew so fast that we moved quickly to size 1 diapers and 0 - 3 month clothes.  At your one month pediatricians appointment, you weighed 10 pounds 6 ounces and were 23 inches long. You are in the 95th percentile for height and the 75th percentile for weight.

We love you more than we know, Peanut, and we are so very glad that you are part of our family.  Happy One Month Birthday!

All Our Love,
Mom, Mama and Drew
