I know this post is well almost five months late but my new blogging goal is to create each of his month milestone posts before he turns six months in one week. We will have to see if this really happens.
Here are a few reasons why I love you and milestones to remember:
~Many people came to visit you at the hospital and when we arrived home you are already a very loved little boy!
~ Night 2 was spent in your crib and you did pretty well
~Gained back your birth weight and some by your 4 day old appnt...you love to eat:)
~Adjusted to b-feeding from the begining but Mommy enjoyed it starting at week 2 after her milk regulated
~1st bottle at 3 weeks old given by G.G. (Great Grandma) when she came to meet you and help Mommy
~1st babysitters (Nana and Grandma) when Mommy and Daddy went on a date at 3 weeks old
~Celebrated Easter Sunday and Christ's Resurrection at the Summit Church with both sides of the family
Stats from your doctor's appnt:
Weight- 11 lbs. and 12 oz.
Length- 22 and 3/4 inches
Mommy and Daddy love you so much and cannot believe the joy you have brought into our lives. This first month of life has been a time of adjustment but we would not trade it for anything. You really are a great baby! From the moment you were born your favorite past time has been eating. And although at times all I feel I do is feed you I love b-feeding and am thankful that it has worked so well for us! We began praying for you sweet boy since the moment we found out I was pregnant and now that you are here we will continue to pray that God will show you His love at a young age. You are a precious gift from the Lord and a blessing we do not deserve. Mommy and Daddy hope to teach you about Jesus and model the Gospel for you each day as you grow older. We love you our first born and look forward to many more months together!
