I love you.
In four short days, you will be FOUR MONTHS OLD. I can’t believe how quickly you are growing up. You, my dear, are getting huge! I think that at the rate you’re at right now, you’ll probably have a beard by the time we visit our family in Colorado in July. You’ll also probably have a Pulitzer by then. I am astounded at how smart you are. You do new things all the time! Lately, you have been especially attentive to my mouth when I talk. I know you’re trying to figure out how to copy me so you can talk too!
I’m a little bit late to the game with writing to you, so I figure we should catch up a little bit. Here are some of my favorite pictures from these past few months with you.
This is the day after you were born. You and your dad have had a special bond since the very beginning.
This picture was taken the day after we took you home from the hospital. You were only 3 days old. I remember just looking at the two of you sleeping and thinking that I was the most lucky person in the world. I still think that every day.
December 16, 2011 - I took about a million pictures of you sleeping that day. You are so handsome!
Christmas Eve 2011 - Basically, you’re the cutest Santa that I have ever laid eyes on.
New Years Day 2012 - I took this picture to remind myself how huge you had gotten. Now when I look at it, I think about how small you used to be.
January 31 2012 - Usually, you HATE tummy time, but on this particular day, you had a blast!
February 3, 2012 - You have never been camera shy!
February 7, 2012 - You’re usually an extremely happy baby! We’ve been lucky enough to avoid major meltdowns for the most part. You would much rather just smile and laugh. If you want to stay this way forever, I wouldn’t mind ;)
February 11, 2012 - I absolutely love your eyes. Your nose. Your mouth. Everything about you.
February 13, 2012 - This was the day you fell in love with your bouncer. (For real, how are you so handsome?)
March 5, 2012 - I don’t make you wear pants that often when we are at home. This won’t last forever; I hope you’re enjoying this luxury while it lasts.
March 7, 2012 - This is you and Dragon. We gave you Dragon when you were just a couple weeks old. We call him your best friend because he is the only pacifier you will accept. High five for loyalty, J. It will get you far.
March 16, 2012 - You got a bumbo a couple of days ago. You love it! You LOVE sitting up, so a chair that helps you do that on your own is pretty much the bee’s knees. Some days, you wear yourself out kicking, and squealing, and wiggling all around!
I’ve can’t put in to words how much fun I’ve been having with you over the last four months, and I look forward to every single day that I am privileged to spend with you. You make the world brighter, little bug.
I love you, sweet baby.
