Linden turned one month old on Saturday... wow. It's so hard to believe the first month has come and gone. I'm constantly saying to myself "The days are long, but the years are short" because it's so very true. Time really flew by with Toby these past 2.5 years, but I think it feels so much faster with a baby so much smaller. I should probably apologize for the insane amount of photos included in this post, but I'm not going to. I could stare at these photos all day and never grow tired of them.
The first couple of weeks were incredibly hard, but I think we're finally starting to find our groove. I feel more confident being at home with him by myself each day, and we've managed to toggle around Toby's transportation to and from school to help. Last week I caught a nasty little cold that Toby brought home from school. Of course it didn't take long for Linden to get it, too. The poor little guy was coughing and sneezing like crazy. Luckily it's almost completely gone. It was stressful, but I'm glad to have the first cold out of the way. Those snuggles sure were sweet though.
This month Linden:
+ is still too small for most of his newborn clothing.
+ is starting to become so alert during the day!
+ loves to be worn all around the house and out in public.
+ spent his first mama-less day with grandma and pawpaw.
+ experienced his first sickness.
+ gained 1 pounds and 13 ounces (8lb 12oz now!)
+ grew 2.5 inches (currently 21.5")
I can't wait to see what Month Two holds for us! xo
