Happy One Month!

Today is Julian's official one month Birthday!

This month has definitely been a crazy one as we have adjusted to being home with Julian and trying to get some sleep and get work and homework done, but Julian is doing great. He loves to eat and now he can follow everything with his intent gaze. He can lift is head and upper body really well and he loves to grunt and make tons of noises like a little dinosaur. He is such a cutie and is learning so much every day! He even started to smile while he is awake!

It turns out that being new parents may be the hardest thing we have ever done. I never realized how many differnt things there were to be paranoid about as a new mom and dad, but you name it and we have worried about it! Breastfeeding is also way harder than I ever imagined. I heard that before I started and just expected that the first 6 weeks would be super tough but after a month I think it is getting to be really rewarding. Anyway props to all the moms and dads out there who are doing the hardest and most important job in the world, and a million thanks to all the wonderful people who help us to do it!!!

One Month in the life of Julian:

Baby's First Christmas

He looks like a little boxer, not quite big enough for the cloth diapers yet, but almost!

Bath Time:)

Sleepy Little Angel

Julian Loves spending time with his Daddy.

This little guy loves to hang out!
