Ethan at 1 Month


Okay, so this is a few days late, but I really want to document each month of Ethan's first year of life.

Ethan, you are 1 month old! You are the sweetest and easiest newborn and we LOVE you more than words can say.

~Your nicknames are "Buddy" and "Little man".

~Right now you are wearing newborn size diapers and you are about to grow into size 1 diapers.

~You're still wearing newborn clothes.

~You weigh about 7 pounds. 7 pounds doesn't sound like much growth from your 6lb, 10oz birth weight, but you lost a LOT of weight in the first week and a half of life. Right now we are taking you in for weekly weight checks and you are consistently going up! Yay!!

~You are nursing every 2-3 hours.

~You sleep about 18 hours a day but in the last week you have been staying awake for longer periods of time. You're usually awake all morning and all evening. In the afternoons you sleep a lot.

~In the last week you have discovered your voice. You aren't quite "coo-ing" yet, but you're trying.

~You are our cuddly baby. Sometimes you fuss just a little simply because you want to snuggle.

~Your sister adores you and is constantly wanting to help me take care of you. She'll bring you your pacifier or tell me that you're crying and you're hungry. ;-) I can't wait to watch your relationship develop with your sister.

~You haven't smiled yet, but Mommy can't wait to see that first purposeful grin on your face.

We love you Ethan and we can't wait to see your personality come out more. We also can't wait to see the plans that God has for you!

I know I say this all of the time, but this is my favorite picture of Ethan now. :)

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Husband, Caleb

Husband, Caleb
Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.

Sisters

Sisters
We fight one day and then the next day we're fine. We're always loud and crazy when we get together. We're very passionate. We've been through it all together, lots of ups and downs. We're eachother's biggest supporters.
