"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life;
to put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived." ~Henry David Thoreau

Devin- 1 Month Old

This has possibly been one of the fastest months in my life. So much has happened in the last four weeks, and honestly it is all a blur. Devin is one month old today and I'm a little sad. I'm a little sad that his newborn phase is drawing to an end. I'm a little sad that he doesn't really feel content to just lie curled up on my chest and sleep. But on the flip side there is so much to look forward to!

I'm seeing his personality emerge more and more everyday. And a large part of that personality spells D-I-V-A. Can a boy be a diva? This boy can. He has to have everything a certain way and he will let you know if you are doing it wrong.

He has started into his night time fussy stage too. It all starts about 6:00 each evening, right as I'm trying to get dinner on the table. Nothing makes him happy at night, except to be snuggled in the sling against my chest. But I have a million things to get done during that time and even though I am hands free, it's still very hard to do things like bathe children. I know this phase will end, but right now it's pretty challenging for me.

Over all he is such a good boy and we are so in love with him. We look forward to all of his milestones that are yet to come! We love you Devin, and we can't imagine our family with out you in it!

Uh oh, someone has displeased him! Sound the alarms! Someone is going to pay!

Lol, he sure is cute. And that shirt is so perfect. Where did you find it? I want one!

One month old already! I am a few days (or maybe weeks) away from giving birth myself and I cannot imagine my new son being one month old right now. Time sure flies.

Oh my gosh!!! He is ADORABLE!! He has grown so quick. Seems hard to believe he is a month already.

He is almost smiling! Very advanced for his age. ;)
