Dear Gray

Dear Gray,
I still can't believe you are finally here! You've been on this earth now one whole month (as of yesterday April 4th). It is amazing to think we prayed for you and now you're sitting right in front of us in the flesh. You've been a pure blessing!

You have changed so much since you were born. Your face has gotten fuller, your complexion has darkened (aka your melanin is popping), you're able to hold up your head up on your own when you're doing tummy time, and you've even grown longer. Everyday I wake up and see your handsome face I am in amazement that I was able to take part in creating you. 

We still can't 100% decide who you look like or more so, I might be in denial since many people tell me you look like daddy. Every day I look at you, you look different. But I'm convinced that you are the perfect blend of your dad and I.

Here are some things that you currently do and enjoy:

Favorite Hobby: Sleeping A LOT

Favorite Food: Mommy's Liquid Gold aka Breast Milk

Favorite Outfits (According to Mommy): Skeleton Sweatsuit & Hooded Striped Onesie with Denim Overalls

Ways You Keep Mommy & Daddy Laughing: You make a dozen funny facial expressions per day, you make dolphin - like noises while you're sleeping, you stick your tongue out at mommy and daddy, and when we burp you after a feeding (when you're sitting up) you get in the "Superman" position holding your arms straight out in front of you

Things that Amaze Us About You: You are very inquisitive (you are constantly looking around taking in the world with your big chestnut colored eyes), you can recognize mommy and daddy's voices when we talk to you, and you wake up every three hours like clockwork to feed

I can't wait to see how you continue to grow and how your personality will continue to  develop over the next few days, weeks, months, and throughout the upcoming years. You make mommy and daddy so proud to be your parents. We're excited to continue on this amazing adventure with you! 

Happy One Month Birthday Munchkin!

Mommy (& Daddy)
