Nathan's Monthly Newsletter: Month One

Dear Nathan,

Today you turn one month old. Here is your first newsletter. Part of me is so happy that this first month is over and part of me is sad that it's already over. In this past month I'm sure you have changed alot but most of it is not visible to the outside world. The biggest thing I have noticed is how well you are holding up your head.

I'm not sure if it's my confidence this time around or that you are an easier baby, but I have become attached to you very quick, where with your brother there was some time where I thought who is this stranger living in this house. The much bigger adjustment I've had with you is learning to deal with you and Lucas at the same time. For the first couple of weeks of your life your dad was around so we could play man on man. But when Darryl is gone it's a juggling act for me. How do you get your sleep without Lucas being too loud and how do I pay attention to Lucas while holding you all the time. It is defintly a learning expereince for me.

So far here are the things I'm loving about having you around.

You are so soft. I forgot how soft babies are. I love to snuggle with you, warm and soft are divine.

You are so small. Lucas seems huge now, but you fit perfectly in my lap.

People love you. It's nice to bring a new person into the world and bring more love into the world.

Lucas loves you. He loves being a big brother. He often asks where you are when he wake up in the morning and loves to lay down on the floor beside you.

I love you my new little baby.

love mommy
