One month old

Our little boy is one month old today, can you believe it?  It all seems so very new still and hard to imagine that we’ve been at it as long as we have.  Every day is lived in the present and the passage of time, dates, days of the week have very little meaning to me.  I can look at those first pictures of him and see how much he’s growing and changing but in the day to day it’s hard to see. 

Over the past 4 weeks, we’ve found that he loves bouncing and swaying, being bathed, looking at our exercise machine and picture frames on the wall, listening to music and looking at lights, our faces or the sky outside. He doesn’t so much like diaper changes, clothing changes, being swaddled (at first), or waiting for anything. He can already hold his head up like a two-month old and has recently found his hands and likes sucking on his fingers and fists.

He has his sweet moments and his fussy moments, and I have my calm moments and my hormonal ones, but we are learning about each other and growing as a family.  I look forward to all of the changes that month 2 and onward will bring.

But now, pictures!
