My cool lil dude is a month old. What?!? I swear, baby time moves way faster than normal time.
Declan, you are the sweetest little boy. You love all the typical baby stuff that big bro shunned: a pacifier, white noise, your swing. You spend your days snugging on our laps, eating, sleeping in your cradle, or staring inquisitively at your surroundings. You make this parenting job easy. We've spent the past month soaking up your newborn smell, all the snuggles, giggling at your silly expressions, and staring into your inquisitive gray eyes. Our hearts are so full. We love you more than you'll ever know.
A few things we forgot about life with a newborn:
- If you have a screaming baby in the car, it is guaranteed you will hit every red light. It's one of the lesser known laws of physics.
- Sleep. Eat. Poop. Repeat. Our life revolves around this cycle.
- Newborn clothes only fit for three weeks. And chances are you won't even get dressed for the first week. Save your money for bigger clothes (or diapers!).
- Your heart will grow a million times bigger in an instant. From my love for Declan, to my love of Joe as a second time father, to my love of Ez in his big brother role, my heart is just so, so full.
Since the blog posts have been a little scarce around here, I decided to make up for it with an overload of Declan cuteness. It is his one month birthday, after all ;)
