1 Month Old Letter to Baby C

Dear Baby C,

I can't believe that you are 1 month old today!!! It seems like just yesterday when Daddy and I brought you home.  The last month has been so wonderful and I couldn't imagine life without you.  This last month has been so special.  We have loved getting to know you.  The best part was getting to see your beautiful face after waiting for 9 whole months!  Daddy and I love hugging and kissing you as much as we can. 

Here are some of my favorite things from this last month:
Holding you for the first time, kissing your chubby cheeks, watching you sleep, seeing you stretch, your sweet little sneezes, giving you baths, giving you lotion massages (even though you hate this), your smell, when you fall asleep on my chest, watching you eat, seeing your sweet smile, when you wrap your hand around my finger, rocking you, singing to you, burping you, when you do your little monster sounds when you're hungry, watching you lay with your daddy, bath time, saying our prayers as a family before bed, spending all day with you, and every little sound that you make!

Some of your favorite things are:
*EATING - you're eating about 4 ounces every 3 hours already!!! (So you eat about 8 times a day)
*Sleeping - you sleep a lot right now, pretty much 2-3 hours after every time you eat!
*Baths - at first you didn't like baths, but now you love them!!!! You don't even cry anymore when we get you out and dry you off
*Being held - you do not like to be put down
*Boppy Pillow - if you are put down you don't mind sitting in the boppy pillow too much
*Car rides - you LOVE going for rides in the car, you get your best sleep on these rides
*Sleeping on your stomach - even though you only get to do this like once a day during a nap because the doctors say you need to sleep on your back
*Cuddling with Mommy and Daddy
*Listening to Daddy play the guitar - you fall asleep to his sweet songs

You have had LOTS of firsts during your first month... here are some of your firsts:

First sponge bath - at the hospital at 2 days old

First real bath - at home at 2 weeks old

First restaurant - Longhorns at 5 days old

First store - Babies R Us at 5 days old

First time sleeping in your crib - 3 weeks old

First trip to Jalapenos - 3 weeks and 2 days old

There are many more firsts to come and I can't wait to see them all!!!

You have been such a blessing in mine and your daddy's lives.  I am looking forward to all of the fun times ahead.  I love you Caycen!!!
