Ty - One Month

I can't believe sweet angel boy is one month old today! In some ways, this month feels like it has been long and in other ways, like it has flown by! In all ways, I am SO, SO thankful for this little man. There is something about a boy! I find myself wanting to spoil him rotten! Maybe I know there will be a day when it is not cool for a son to cuddle with his mom and for me to smother him with kisses. I don't know but, I cannot get enough of him right now.
....those eyes!
....those cheeks!
....the baby yawns!
ok...enough mom!
Dad can't get enough either. I can't wait to see these boys interact and play one day. I see many a fishing and hunting trip in their future.
In his first month, I want to remember what an easy baby you have been! Kinley was definitely not a difficult baby...but, Ty, you have been a dream. You have been a fantastic eater and sleeper from the beginning. Already you are nursing about every 3 1/2 to 4 hours during the day and every 5 to 5 1/2 hours at night. That means you really only wake up once at night already. On the whole I am getting great sleep and sleepless nights are definitely the exception. I am so, so thankful for that blessing! At night you sleep pretty great in your bassinet but, you usually end up in bed with me before the night ends...maybe around 5:00am or so until we get up for the day. You sleep pretty much anywhere and everywhere during the day and are not picky....the couch, the bouncer, the swing, the carseat...anywhere.
You are a big boy! You probably weigh over 11 pounds already...gaining about a pound a week. From day 1 you were wearing 3 month clothes and size 2 diapers and pretty much skipped right over that newborn stuff.

The transition from 1 kid to 2 has been really great! I was really scared of how overwhelmed I would feel but, both of my kids have been amazing. Kinley has adjusted wonderfully and she is so patient with us and loving toward Ty. Ty, you are patient with your sister and when she talks to you or around you I can tell you love her. It has been like that since you were in my tummy. Every time Kinley would come around, you would start kicking!
Things you love are: your bouncer, the moby wrap, your car seat and your mobile. You are starting to like your baths and the swing also. When I am working cleaning up your room or Kinley's room or putting away your clothes, I set you in your bed to watch the mobile and you love it.
Ty, in your first month, you have met lots of new family and friends and this past week even helped Austin celebrate his dedication with lots of family and cousins.
You have had your picture taken probably a million times already and I have loved on you and kissed you more than I can count.
You are even starting to smile a little bit. I have not caught at full on smile yet...but, this half smile is to.die.for!
I love you my little Ty Ty. You are such a blessing to us. Our prayers for you continue to be that you will become a man after God's heart. That you will me merciful and gracious and patient and that you will fall in love with Jesus at an early age and believe in Him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. We are overwhelmed with thankfulness that God entrusted you and your sweet sister to us. Happy 1 month!
