1 month

Dear Alex,
1 month has gone by so fast. It hardly seems possible that you are already that old! You definitely complete our family and my heart is just so full of love and happiness. You are wearing some newborn clothes, but mostly 0-3 month clothing. You are wearing size 1 diapers and weigh a little over 9 lbs. Nursing is one of your favorite things to do and you seem to nurse about every 1.5 hours. Sleeping is hit or miss...hopefully you will get in the groove and learn to sleep longer. Car rides are your favorite and so far you have already been to St. Louis and Indiana! Next week you are taking your first flight...we are headed to New York City for the weekend. You do not like having a wet/dirty diaper, but who can blame ya?! You've had a few "love pats" from your brother, but he means well. He loves you to pieces and always wants to know where you are and is concerned that you are okay when you cry. He loves to go see you in the crib/pack-n-play after you get up from your naps. Today you are also participating in your 1st Race for the Cure in St. Louis for my Aunt Barb's team. She would have loved to have met you Alex...
Happy 1 month Alex James! We love you!!!
