Deven Thomas is 1 month old

I cannot believe that a month has gone by already. He is already such a little sweetheart. Growing so big already!

Things that are notable about this month:

Sleep grins. Mama's heart melts
BABY FARTS STINK! Lots and lots of baby farts!
Breast feeding is harder than I thought.
He's started sleeping 3 hours at a time. I am starting to feel somewhat well rested. This is a recent (last few days) development.

Here is my letter to Deven- I will try to write this letter to him every month so that he can look back on them when he is older.

Dear Deven,
You came into the world right before a storm and very cold weather. You showed your stubborn side by refusing to be turned when they tried to do the version. You came into the world via C-section on 1/18/2008 at 7:54 PM. Your daddy brought you to me and I said "Hi, Deven"

You turned your head towards me and it was love right then.

I would do anything in this world for you.

I'm looking forward to seeing your first smile, hearing you laugh, watching you roll over and sit up.

I always knew I would love you, but I never imagined that I would love you this much. You are the best thing I have ever done in my life.

Today, you were sleeping on my lap and you were grinning in your sleep. Then you giggled. It was the cutest sound I have ever heard.

I hope I am as good a mama as you deserve. I will try my hardest.

Love,
Mama

Ahhh, I am so right there with you. Breastfeeding Ella (better known to BW as ee) is exhausting at best. And my boobs HURT! :)

I love the letter idea. I may start doing that for her too. Hope all is well and you are taking care of yourself...
