Grant Henry Kelley - One Month

It's funny how when you're pregnant...eager to meet your new baby, prepping the nursery in crazy nesting mode and trying to calm your anxieties about your impending labor....It can feel like you're literally pregnant FOOOOORRREEEVER.  Especially when you're incredibly uncomfortable....swollen, sore and irritable and feeling like the last months of your pregnancy are out to prove to the world just how crazy you really are.  :)  Or at least that's how it felt for me.  

But once our sweet baby boy arrived.. POOF, he was already one month old.  Just like that.  

I'm sure it has to do with the fact that the days and nights just seem to blur together as we learned to adjust to life with a newborn again.  Survival mode set in and we quickly learned just how little sleep we could actually survive on.  

Sweet middle of the night coos, eyes more alert every single day and an appetite that just doesn't seem to stop. At 9lbs 11oz and 21" tall, he's almost 2lbs bigger and 1" longer than he was at birth. :)
