Brandon came home early to help us celebrate T-man's 1 month birthday. We took a walk in the park and topped the evening off with a cupcake.
A popular trend in the blogosphere is to document each month's birthday with a picture next to a teddy bear. I am using a bear from FAO Schwartz that Brandon got me on our first trip to New York together in 2001. I hope these get easier.... :)
The saying on this picture about sums about it up...
Sweet baby Travis,
I cannot believe that I lived almost 29 years without you in my life. In the past month, you have brought me more joy and pride and love than I have ever known. Your arrival has deepened my love for your daddy and for your grandparents in more ways than I can explain.
I can't believe that you have already been here a month. You have changed so much already, and I know that the next few months hold even bigger changes in store. I love watching you eat knowing that it will make you grow bigger and stronger and watching you sleep knowing that is when you are doing all of your growing. I am looking forward to seeing your personality develop and your physical characteristics take shape.
Your daddy and I are trying to soak in every sound, smell, and moment. Keep on growing, but don't change too fast. I love you.
