Dear Will - One Month!

Dear Will,

Happy One Month!  Can you believe we made it this far?!

You are smiling so much now!  You are starting to coo and try to talk to us!

You got braces for your thumbs this week.  You have a tendency to put your thumbs into your fist, rather than outside of it.  The braces make you look like you have boxing gloves on - especially when you're kicking and punching when you're mad!

You are 8 pounds and 15 ounces, and you grew an inch already!

Your umbilical cord stump fell off, too.  Your belly button looks so cute!

You have started to sleep in four hour chunks through the night.  Praise the Lord!  You are such a good baby.  We still sneak naps when we can, though!

You are too long for some of your pajamas, but then, other longer pants fall off your little bum.  I have a feeling this will be the start of our problems in looking for clothes for you.  You are very, very long, and very skinny.  

You are finally done (or almost done) peeling!  

You had your "newborn" pictures done with Tara Christians this past week.  You sprayed Tara, me and your daddy with pee twice, spit up on all three of us at least twice a piece, and pooped all over Tara's baby blanket.  Way to make your mark, buddy!

We gave you your first REAL bath last night.  You weren't too sure about it, but then we found out that you like the water hot, like your mom.

You are having fun doing tummy time!  We are working to build big and strong muscles in your neck.  You do a great job most of the time, but when you are tired or hungry, you pitch a fit and hate it.  Your dad insists on doing it, even when you are angry.  He just wants you to be ready for football.

You love to be held.  When you are awake, you insist on snuggling or being in your baby carrier, close to mom.  You are such a softie.

You made your first trip across Iowa this weekend to visit Grammy Pammy, Papa, and your aunties.  I barely get to hold you anymore, now that they're around!  

We love you so, so much, Will!  

Love, Your Mama
