My sweet boy,
You are such a wonderful addition to our family. Daddy and I love you so much. They always say that you'll be amazed at how much love you have for your children. And it is true. I had no idea I could love you as much as I do!
Daddy and I finally feel like we have somewhat of a routine with you. We can figure out what you're trying to tell us with your cries (usually). We can laugh at your nightly crab-fest, knowing that you're okay, but doing whatever it takes to calm you. And these days, calming you takes a tight swaddle (only the sleep sack is tight enough), the Sleep Sheep on its highest volume, and rocking. All at once. As soon as we get you tightly swaddled, you're happy as a clam.
Little man, you love to eat. And you love to just "hang out," pretending to eat, but really, just pacifying yourself. For that reason, we are working on you using a pacifier. We are currently looking for one you'll take. With no luck this far.
You love hanging out with Mama in the Ergo, where you can fall asleep in a matter of minutes. And you love being outside, playing fetch with the puppy-boy, Finn.
You've been the star guest at girls' night. All the ladies want to hold you, rock you, and play with you. You've enjoyed being the little ladies' man.
You've started to turn your head toward voices and smile (you think Pa is pretty funny). You can sleep through anything and make a lot of noise. While you can be pretty fussy in the evening, the fusses turn to grunts with every move in the morning.
We have loved being your mama and daddy, and can't wait to see how you'll grow and change!
