To my little peanut,

I’m nearly in tears writing this. No really. You’re one month already? Where did that month go? I feel like it was just yesterday that I was still pregnant with you wondering when you’d make your appearance. Wondering what you’d look like. Now I know! You have the most perfect little nose ever. You have my lips and I love it when you smile! Your face is adorable, even when you’re upset. I can’t get over how cute you are and that you’re all mine!

Things you love: momma and daddy snuggles, kicking, back time, napping, staring at faces, smiling, and bath time. You love to be clean, whether it’s bath time or just changing your diaper. You love it. I hope you continue to love that! You like it when daddy does bicycles to help you get gas relief (poor little one!). Life as a one month old seems pretty sweet to you!

Things we love about you: of course we love the snuggles! I love how alert you are and how you love staring at me. I love how you try to talk to me, but can’t, and only get a few sounds out. I love how you sometimes just need to snuggle to calm down. I love your smiles and how you smile at me when you realize it’s me. I love the noises you make. I love it when you start to wake up. Your eyes open and close and your face starts twitching. You smile occasionally. It’s the cutest thing! I love it when you laugh in your sleep. It’s adorable! Your daddy loves to come home from work and snuggle you. He loves telling you about his day and talking to you about yours. Your daddy really loves you and it’s so cute! I love that you can recognize my voice and face. I love being your momma.

Really, this month has gone by so fast. I really wish I could slow time down. Everyone warned me about how they ‘grow up too fast’. I believe them now. My little momma heart is so full and happy. I love being your momma and I love our family. You really made my heart grow bigger with love when I first saw you. You’ve changed my life for the better and I can’t imagine it without you. I am so excited to watch you grow. To teach you. To be there for you.

Grow, little one, and be healthy. But don’t grow too quickly. My little momma heart can’t take it. You’re amazing. I’ll love you forever. I’ll like you for always. As long as I’m living, my baby you’ll be.

I love you so much!

Love, mommy

I am a photographer, a wife, a sister, and now a momma to be. I strive to capture the beauty in ordinary things. I love to photograph people, places, and things that I love and cherish. I am a lover of natural light, macro, lifestyle, and dark and moody images. I am a die hard Nikon fan, I love yellow starbursts, I am a pianist, and I am obsessed with photography, maybe a little too much!
