My precious little lamb…
It’s been one month since you came into our lives, and what a blessing you have been! You have completely changed my life for the better, and it’s getting harder and harder to remember life without you. I wake up every morning looking forward to snuggling you, and miss you while you’re fast asleep (although I am super happy to have you sleeping because I need to sleep too!). You have shown me a new love, a love I didn’t know before and could not even comprehend. And to think, this is how God loves us. It was hard for me to fully understand that before, but you have made me see that now.
I love your sleepy smiles, your precious little noises, and the way you sleep on my chest with your arms wrapped around me in a hug. I love your tiny little fingers and toes, and those sweet baby lips. I don’t have much experience, but I feel like you’re SUCH a good baby. You are so content, whether it’s in my arms, in your swing, or in your bouncy seat. This may change, but I sure do feel lucky that this is how you’ve been! I thank you so much for it because as you know, your mom didn’t exactly have much experience with babies. 🙂 But I feel like God knew exactly what I needed, and that’s exactly what I got.
You have gained quite a bit of weight this first month…almost 3 whole pounds! You love to rock in your mom’s arms, listen to Baby Einstein radio on Pandora, and listen to your mom read your Jesus Storybook Bible. You LOVE taking baths…they are so soothing for you! You fall right to sleep in the car, which is very convenient! And you absolutely love to cuddle on your mom and dad’s chest. Mom loves that too 🙂
It’s hard to believe you’re already a month old.. I feel like time has just flown by. As I sit here typing this letter to you, watching you sleep, I feel so blessed that I was chosen to be your mom and that I get to watch you grow. Just please don’t grow too fast okay? ‘Cause I’m not quite sure I could handle that. 🙂
(fyi – pillows just for decoration! they do not stay in the crib!)
