I am amazed at the independent little boy you are becoming. Today Daddy and I took you to the park and you didn't even need our help to do anything. You are such a strong little boy and your outgoing nature makes it seem as if you could do anything you set your mind to doing. I am amazed watching you learn new things each and every single day.
You are such a kind little boy. You love being around people and you love to make people laugh. One of your favorite things is to run and hide and then jump out to scare us around the house. Your laughter is contagious. You are stringing words together like "I did it" and "Where are you" now and you continue to learn new words and sayings every day. Sometimes you will say things and we have no idea where you learned them from.
You are such a sweet big brother to Owen. You love to bring him a paci when he is crying, even if it is one of yours. You like to swing him in the swing. You are the first to go running to see if everything is ok when Owen cries. Owen is so lucky to have you as his big brother!
Your favorite things for now are watching the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (but Mommy and Daddy limit you to two episodes per day), going night night, sliding on the slides at the park, helping Mommy and Daddy around the house, taking baths with lots of bubbles, climbing on everything in sight and playing with your train.
You are such a wonderful blessing from God. I hope you know how much that Daddy and I love you.
My sweet baby boy. You are already three whole weeks old. It is amazing how much you have changed our lives in such a short period of time. You are such an easy going baby. You hardly ever make any noise at all unless you are hungry or want someone to snuggle with you. You are a cuddly baby and love being held, especially by me.
You still have your days and nights a little confused, but we don't mind too much. Before we know it you won't even be waking up in the middle of the night any more. We cherish each and every single moment. You don't really cry too much but when you do, you want to be heard!
You are perfect in every way. I love to watch you all the time. You have the cutest little grin. I love your adorable little side burns. I am amazed by how big you are and how much you have grown in just a few short weeks. I love watching your little personality develop day by day. Your Daddy and I think that you look just like him.
You love being cuddled. You love your bath time as long as the water is warm and we have a space heater on to keep you toasty warm. You don't seem to mind when your big brother makes lots of noise or messes with you a little bit. We are so thankful that God gave us you. You and your brother are answers to many of our prayers.
