Dear Westin

 Dear sweet Westin,
Sweet child you have no idea how much you have blessed and completed our family in just the first month of your life. I never knew Mommy's heart would grow so much to love another child. The love Mommy and Daddy feel for you is epic and we are truly blessed to have 3 healthy, beautiful children. Thank you sweet child for being the beautiful, sweet and hilarious little boy that you are each day. You are such a joy to all of us!

Here you are at 1 month. You were not real happy with taking pictures, it was time for you to eat and that is all you have on your mind these days. Above you can see you were trying to chew your hands off, I think you thought Mommy forgot to feed you. You have put yourself on a 3 hour feeding schedule during the day and will go up to 6 hours during the night. Usually you sleep from 10/11pm til 4am, eat and go back down til we get up at 7 to take your big brothers to school.

 Right now when you are mad, Mommy and Daddy can't help but laugh and kiss you all over your sweet cheeks. It saddens my heart to see you upset but it also is hilarious because you are so darn cute. At this point in our photo session you had had enough.

This is the best I could get, you little stinker. On your 1 month birthday we visited the doctor and you weighed 7lbs 11oz. You gained 2 whole pounds since birth and that was such a miracle and right on track for a newborn! Mommy and Daddy were so worried about you being so tiny but you are gaining weight at a rapid pace which makes us so proud.

Your big brothers have nothing but joy for you. You make them smile and so happy. All they want to do is hold you and love on you all the time. You have fit so perfectly into our family and we all love you so much!! Keep up the good work, keep growing and being the apple of our whole families eyes! You are our special child sweet boy! 

Mommy and Daddy
