One Month Old

My Sweet Baby Quinn,
A month ago today you came into my life and, from that moment, I was forever changed. The past 31 days have been more than I could have ever dreamed. The love that I feel for you is truly unexplainable and the fact that you are completely dependent on your daddy and me is such a sweet feeling. I am truly thankful for such an amazing privilege. I find myself smiling at you and kissing you all of the time. I know that I'm taking care of you, but I don't think that I believe that you're really mine.

From March 27th to now, you have experienced so many firsts...your first time to see your house, your first time to meet your puppies, your first walk around the neighborhood, your first outing, your first bath, your first Easter, your first time to roll over from your tummy to your back, and so much more! I guess that everything is a first and I feel so blessed to have been right by your side for them all.

I also have my list of favorite the top is when you smile in your sleep. It makes me so ready to see you smile at me. Someone told me that God gives us these smiles in order to appease us until you really smile and I agree. The little grins just melt my heart! In a very close second is watching you stretch. I love it SO much! To see your sweet arms work so hard and the funny faces you make- it always makes me laugh. I love bath time, seeing you in your footie jammies, reading stories to you, and, of course, taking your picture. I also love dressing you for the day - I'm just ready for you to be a tiny bit bigger so that you can fit in all of your cute outfits.

It's crazy how I already can't imagine my life without you. I can't imagine not consoling that silly little high-pitched cry and waking up 2 or 3 times in the night to feed you. When we go out, we are always stopped numerous times by strangers telling us how beautiful you are and how tiny...and we agree! You're the most precious baby we have ever seen! Your daddy and I just stare at you in awe of how blessed we are --- you are truly perfect!!! Thank you for the joy that you have already brought into my world and for letting me be your mommy! If month two is half as much fun as month one, I can't wait! I love you so very much!!!

Your Mommy

I'm just imagining what he might think about that monkey... maybe I could make up a conversation he's having with the monkey in that one picture. I love his face in the first pic. He looks so thoughtful!

Good grief, he just keeps getting cuter! I think we need to open up a Baby Quinn photo gallery. I miss him!! He looks like he's about to have words with that monkey! Come to think of it, I'm predicting that monkey will be his first word. Love you! :)
