Adam’s First Month

Dear Adam,

You are actually seven weeks old today, but I wanted to share your beautiful newborn portraits by our sweet and talented friend, Christie Lacy, and share a few fun details from your first month of life! (I’ll be sharing about your second month soon!)

From the time you surprised us with your early arrival, you have come such a long way! Remember that you did’t even know how to eat? In the NICU, you had a feeding tube, then learned how to suck a pacifier, then how to drink from a bottle, then how to breastfeed using a nipple shield, and finally (especially when we came home!) learned how to breastfeed! That was the hardest eating skill they said you’d learn, and you learned in just two weeks!

Month One was full of FIRSTS, and it is so much fun getting to know you! You:

Love: eating (allllll day!), being held chest to chest, going on walks (yay!), and car rides.

Do NOT love: sleeping at night, bath time (although we may be turning a corner?), your arms to be swaddled, or the part of the diaper change where we put a clean diaper on you. Funny boy.

Favorite food: Mommy milk.

Favorite song: This Little Light of Mine.

Accomplishments: being born, learning to eat, coming home from NICU, and – no lie – before you even turned three weeks old, you rolled over three times during tummy time from your stomach to your back. WHAT?! The first time was after your first bath. Your dad and I looked at each other like, “Did that just happen??”

Your whole first month, I was still supposed to be pregnant with you! But you had your own schedule, and we are so happy to have had this extra month with you!

Mrs. Christie came over and took these photos the day before you turned three weeks old. (Your Nana and Uncle Jesse were in town from Georgia to meet you!) You’ve already changed so much from these photos, so we will cherish these images forever. I will mostly love remembering your wrinkly / baggy skin and even Ollie’s awful summer shave haircut!

You are my gift.
You are my heart.
– Forever your Mom

These wrinkly armpits are my favorite!
