August 25, 2014: Our first month was a little crazy as the boy was figuring out life outside the womb and I was trying to figure out life post pregnant life. I think he was homesick. I certainly missed being pregnant.
September 25, 2014: Weighing in at 12 lbs, 13 oz and measuring 24.5 inches, he was my little bruiser. He was just starting to smile. I was starting to feel more confident, especially since I was finally able to make our living space more comfortable. We were still getting to know each other, so it was still a bit bumpy.
October 25, 2014: This was a big month! He is smiling all the time now. He’s grasping and batting at toys. His newborn startle reflex is basically gone. He’s experimenting with all kinds of sounds, and he’ll even have a “conversation” with us! I even know how to get him to laugh. I feel as if he’s finally recognizing me as his mama, and not just as another random person. He now will calm down when I pick him up. It’s such an amazing feeling!
I’m so lucky to have such an awesome little boy! I love being a mom!
