I cannot believe it's been a month since you've come into our lives. And boy, did you make an entrance! You have had quite the personality in the last month and have kept us on our toes. You've had your 1st and hopefully last hospital visit and gained over 2lbs and 3 inches! Although you haven't christened us quite as much as your brother, you have peed on yourself twice now, enough to get your hair soaking wet! Speaking of hair, it is your most popular attribute. I'm not sure I've met one person that hasn't commented on it. It's Mommy's favorite, too! You're currently not a big fan of sleeping and you're one of 'those' babies who think we should hold them all the time. You loathe the swaddle that your brother was a fan of and instead we wrap the bottom half of you up for warmth- it's quite the sight. You've only had a few visitors and we haven't taken you very many places. We attempted to be cautious, but as you can see, that got us nowhere. It definitely has been an exhausting 4 weeks, having 2 kids is hard work! We haven't worked on tummy time as much as I have wanted and we've got to get the activity mat out so you can start to play with that. Just like your big brother, your favorite place to sleep is in your hammock on your pack n play. You don't dig the swing very much and your very favorite place to be is in someone's arms.
Oh Ezra, we are so blessed to have you in our lives and for you to be Gage's little brother. Although he's not super fond of you right now, we know you'll grow to be the best of friends. He will teach you all kinds of things and you will look up to him always. I can't wait for you to notice him and to see the smile you'll give him when he walks into a room. Heck, I can't wait for you to even smile at me....I guess I have a couple more weeks, though. He'll probably even be mad one day that I have started these letters with you right away and he didn't even get one until 7-8 months. We haven't even gotten a picture of the 2 of you together, although we have several matching outfits to take pictures in. Although Mommy and Daddy have had a very tiring month, we love you soo soo much and can't wait to see you grow! We know how blessed we are to have two healthy and happy little boys!
By next month, you'll have had your 1st Halloween, 1st pumpkin patch trip, 1st OBX trip and your brother's 3rd birthday party! Happy One month, Grunt, we love you!
