You’re a dream baby. I keep pinching myself because things are so effortless with you. You and I hit our groove so quickly after you arrived, and we’ve been humming along happily ever since.
I know I write this every week, but you’re so calm. You seem to have this inner peace. It’s as if you’ve been here before or maybe just an inner confidence that’s shinning out and saying, I got this. Your calm helps to calm me down. I always know what to expect with you. You so rarely fuss, and when you do, it’s so easy to calm you. I am so grateful for who you are already, my son. I can tell you are an old, wise soul, and I love getting to know you a little more each day. I can already tell that you will teach me so much in this precious life. You make me feel like a mom that has it all together (I don’t), but at least that’s how you make me feel.
Your presence in our family is such a precious gift. I hope you always know that.
During this past week, you’ve become so much more expressive. You’re awake more and your eyes are so bright, open, and alert.
And your eyes, my love, are stunning. I know your true eye color will change as your melanin comes in and your color sets. However, it’s easy to already see the design of your eyes–the dark ring and the starburst of light and shading–and it’s beautiful.
It’s been a smilefest in our house. Every time you smile, my heart goes grinch and grows 10 sizes. Sometimes you look so much like your father that it stops my heart.
This week I’m excited to introduce you to your grandpa, your uncles, your great grandparents and your great aunts and uncles. I know they are going to adore you just like we do.
You are so loved, my dear August, always,
