one month

One month ago today we met our son for the first time. It was such a joyous day. Phil and I talked that night about how the day literally could not have been more perfect. He smiled at us, snuggled us, and we were TOUCHING him after all that time! It was like a dream and we were in love! The last month has not been easy. It has been filled with ups and downs...physically and emotionally. I feel like we're finally finding our groove and what our life looks like as a new family of 5!
What he's been up to the last month:
-Learned to wave hi/bye-bye
-Sign for "more"
-Claps his hands and sometimes says "yay" while clapping
-Blows kisses
-His army crawl has taken off!
-He could hardly bear weight on his legs and now he stands for long periods of time and loves it!
-He eats like a MAN. He loves food and we literally have not found one thing he doesn't like, and he eats everything!
-He smiles so easily. His little giggle is coming out all the time and we love it. This boy is ticklish!
-Two new teeth coming in!
-Says "mama" and "dada" a lot, but we still aren't sure if he's actually calling us that.
-Says "na-na" while shaking his head no. He has learned that one quickly!

We love our sweet boy! It's hard to believe in a few short weeks he will be turning 1!!!

One month ago today:

Oh my goodness! He looks so grown up in the last picture. He has changed quite a bit! He's so handsome!
