Dear Henry:Month One

Dear Henry,

I can not believe it has already been a whole month since we got to meet you for the first time. It has gone by so fast that I almost forgot it was today! You are the most precious, perfect little Christmas gift, and far more than I deserve.

You are the best baby, and I did not think anyone got two of those, but we lucked out. At 10lbs 5oz you are one chunky little thing. You look just like your big brother did just much much bigger. You have so much hair and the chubbiest cheeks I have ever seen.

We ran right through newborn size clothes in about 2 weeks and skipped right into 0-3 and some 3 month outfits. We are still struggling with our days and nights being a little mixed up, but we are working on that and I figure I am still young enough to be sleep deprived and make it with a little help from Dr. Pepper. You hate your bouncy seat and love to be held more than anything, which I am glad to do.

I love our quiet afternoons together. While Jack naps I just sit and hold you. Its the best 2 hours of my day! Your big brother has grown quite fond of you in 4 short weeks even though it was touch and go there for a few days. He loves to kiss you and make sure your still here each morning when he wakes up.

And even though I may be stuck in sweat pants until 2 o'clock in the afternoon,and we might have to eat cereal for dinner and look at house that is not as clean as my type A personality would like, I would not trade these days for anything in this world. Like I tell your daddy all the time when its been a hard day and I really want to cry...we are gonna miss this!

He is so precious, I see John's mouth and chin. I would love to sit and hold him too. Enjoy every minute. I really enjoy looking at the pictures. I have Jack and Henry on my Frig.
