Dear Zeke - How are you already 1 month old?
Dear Zeke - How are you already 1 month old?

Dear Zeke,

One year ago, if someone had told me that I would have a one month old – I would of laughed and accused whomever of being drunk.

Well the laughs on me.

The last month, your Daddy and I have absorbed so much of your sweet love and cuteness. You have stolen our hearts and have two older brothers and a big sister who adore you just the same. While we didn’t know what to expect with having two kids 16-months apart, it’s not been nearly as hard as we expected. We know that you and your brother have many fun times ahead once you get a little bit bigger. But that being said, don’t grow up too fast!

You can sleep through just about any noise and this past week, you slept up to 5 hours straight at a time.   I am fairly certain that if I was to pop in a movie, and place you in front of the television you would watch it. Fear not, I haven’t tried that yet. But your curiosity towards the TV on the wall has us chuckling.

At your one month well visit you weighed in at 9.2 lbs – chunking up from your 7.2 birth weight! And you grew 2 whole inches. If mommy grew 2 inches for each month she was alive, she would be way over 68 feet tall.

Here are our favorite photos from your first month here:
