My sweet boy,
I can’t believe you are already one month old! In the grand scheme of things, you haven’t been with us for long, but I can’t remember my life without you in it! Everyone says you look just like your Daddy when he was a baby, and that makes me smile. You love to lay on your tummy, and can already kind of scoot across the floor when you push your feet against something. You also like to put your fingers in your mouth, which makes it hard to feed you sometimes! (I think you’re going to be a thumb sucker.) You make all kinds of funny faces and sounds, even when you’re sleeping. Speaking of which, if you could get your days and nights on track, Mommy and Daddy would be forever grateful!
I love you!
