Love Overflowing

Month 5

 Dearest Zachary,

It has been five months since you graced us with your presence. I seriously don’t know how our lives would be if you weren’t in it. It was such a natural change. You are such a happy little guy and loved by all.

One of the best parts, for me, is your smile. When I enter your bedroom to get you after a slumber, your smile lights up the room. It’s as if you haven’t seen me for ages and you have been waiting all day to see me. You smile at everyone and everything. It brings joy to my heart to see you as such a happy baby. I hardly remember when you were in pain with the reflux after you were born. To look at you  now, you would never know.

This month we celebrated mommy’s birthday and you took your first trip to Main Street. You also experienced a couple of firsts: first bowl of cereal, first bite of green beans and your first x-ray. You devour the cereal while the green beans you only tolerate. It’s always makes me laugh when you have a mouth full of green beans and I see you shudder at the taste. And yet you keep eating them.

The x-ray wasn’t a first I was hoping to have this early on in your life but it was better to be safe than sorry. Mommy and Daddy wanted to makes sure everything was on the up and up with your hips. You have a wonderful pediatrician that is very thorough and didn’t want us to worry unnecessarily. You did wonderful during the x-ray and smiled the entire time. You didn’t even pee on the tech when she had to remove your diaper!

You are such a sweet and loving boy. You love your sister so much. She can get you to stop crying by singing to you. And she can always get a smile out of you. Remember how much you adore her when you get older. You already get a little jealous when you see her getting snuggles from Mommy, Daddy or Grandma. The green-eyed monster is already starting to show his face. Just remember that there is enough snuggles and love to go around.

Zachary, even in the five short months you have been here, you have brightened the world. Looking forward to many more months with you.
