Mira June: Month 1

1 Month
Your first month with us flew by, and was really great.  You have been doing so well eating and sleeping and being content.  The past few days you have been a little less content and stayed wide awake from 1am-4am a couple nights ago---but I will take it.  It has been so fun adding you to our family.  You fit in just perfectly.  Levi loves you, and becomes very distressed when you cry.  He likes to say "hi" to you over and over with his face parked right in front of yours.  You don't mind.  You also do not mind Daisy sniffing your face all the time.  I think you are so big, but everyone else always talks about how tiny you still are.  You started off the month pooping through every type of diaper I put on you, and pooped on me several times.  Luckily we got that under control when I started putting you in larger cloth diapers and covers.  You grunt a lot, like most newborns. Honestly your grunts are not too cute.  They sound like a sick animal.  Soon enough they will turn to adorable 'coos' though.  You have already rolled over twice, both front to back and back to front.  Daddy says he does not believe me because it was just you and me both times.  But really slow down, okay?  You get more beautiful every day and add so much joy to our lives.  We love you so much!

 If you are into comparing and such, you can see what Levi looked like and was up to at the same age here.

Still do not know why blogger gives some of my photos weird colors. So frustrating.  Seriously, all these photos have the exact same edit.   But really, that last photo kills me.  That expression!! Sigh :)

The Sweetest Mother's Day

My heart is full!  I could not ask for anything more for a perfect Mother's Day...except maybe Coldstone ice cream. :)

Last night, as I was staring at my daughter, I felt like I could explode from all the love I felt.  I sometimes worry all this love that overwhelms me for my kids will smother them!  Then I start thinking of how much my mom must love me.  I do not think you can ever understand how much your mother loves you unless you become one yourself.  This love is the most amazing feeling.   Beyond grateful I get to experience a mother's love, and that I have a mommy who loves me so much.  Happy Mother's Day!

His Favorite Shirt

He adores his Big Brother shirt.  He chooses it over all his other shirts when it is clean, even Lightning McQueen shirts.  This particular day, he dumped half a basket of clean, folded clothes out of a laundry basket just to get to this shirt.
