Today, Titus, you are one month old. I can hardly believe it. I was so scared that I was going to have such a hard time with three boys but it has been a joy and fun more than I could have imagined!
It is so funny, so many people have so many opinions on who you look like. It is normal to have “Wow! He looks SO MUCH like Noah!” and then 10 minutes later? “He looks nothing like Noah did!” Me? I think you are so different. Your beautiful face is rounder, and your eyes are bluer than I remember Noah’s. I hope you keep the blue eyes. Your hairline is exactly like your daddy’s. There are no calics that I can see, and there is this little patch of white-blond hair on your right side.
You are also a wiggle worm! When you are awake, you are moving your body constantly. Your eyes are wide open and your arms are moving! You are so aware of everything going on.
You are awake more during the day than you are asleep…which is good. You aren’t fussy at all, just content to look around with those big eyes. So laid back…so.laid.back. Now, a lot of things factor into your laid back-ness, I think. Noah was my first…I was worried, had a lot of fear and was scared I was going to do something wrong, and tried to do EVERYTHING right. Now, I am worried, but not as much. I try to do right, just don’t stress about it. Basically, I am a little more relaxed myself!
You only wake up two times at night. Oh it is so wonderful. I was having a hard time staying awake sometimes, and would find myself in the chair with you sometime in the night. What a sight, I am sure!
Last thing…you are an EATER. More often you want more and more to eat, hardly giving me a break. I love it, though! You are also quite regular with your “movements” if you know what I mean! Every feeding (a lot, remember) there is a dirty diaper! I have gone through many diapers with you, sweet one!
Basically, Titus, I am so happy and content with my boys. You have rounded out this family and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for you. I pray that you have a little of your brother’s strong will and independence so that when you are older you will stand strong for Jesus and love Him completely. I love you Titus and am so happy to be your mommy.
