Your Very First Month

My baby Blake... we anticipated you for 9 months and knew our life was about to change greatly, but we never knew just how much.

You have taught us patience, laughter, humility, and most importantly a love that we NEVER knew we could feel. Your dad and I often look at you and ask ourselves how we were so lucky that you came into our lives and we often say how you are our best accomplishment so far.

We look at you and can't wait to see the adorable child you will grow into...the personality you will have... the man that you will be when you "grow up".

If you could understand right now, the one thing we would tell you is to cherish every moment of this wonderful life you have in front of you. I look back in just a short month of your life and I can't even believe how quickly you are growing up... I see brighter eyes, more personality, a bigger body (of course!), and the way you are starting to smile. It quickly reminds me to cherish every second that I get to spend with you, even if you are screaming at 2am because you think the world might end if you don't get a bottle, because you are quickly growing up in the blink of an eye and I don't want to miss a moment!

Love you more than life itself dear Blake! Can't wait to see what comes in the next month!

In case time goes way too quickly, here are a few pictures of where you've been in this short month of your life...

Love, Mom

The moment we first met... 

It was love at first sight!

You had the longest fingers and piggies

Dad was so proud to call you his...you still sleep with him like this now:)

You will always be such a cute little monster to us!

Your very first mail... 
don't worry too much about this when you get older, 
it might not even be around then :)

Your big dog-sister, Wendybird.
She too was in love with you at first sight...
she follows you around wherever you go and checks on you at night in your crib.

Your first month-birthday! May 10th, 2012!

We will see just how big you get next to this little calendar your first year!
