I absolutely can not believe it has already been an entire month! It has been a glorious 4 weeks, and I have loved getting to know my newest little bundle of joy. It has been tiring, and it's new and different being a mom of 2 now, but I can truly say it's been wonderful. Just as I did with Sylas, I intend to share Deacon's Milestones month by month. You can check out Sylas's Milestones here, and without further ado, here are Deacon's first month milestones (3 days late).
You are an absolute joy! Your Daddy and I are so in love with you already. You are calm and even tempered and legitimately only cry when you need to eat. You are the epitome of an "easy baby." I am trying something a little different with you than I did with your brother as far as "scheduling" and you are right on board! You eat and sleep like a champ, and have even been sleeping in your crib for naps and even at night time since you were just 2 weeks old. You love your bed and are comfortable there.
Everyone of course asks who you look like and I'm not sure I know just yet. I think you just look like you. There are times when you look pretty similar to your big brother, except with dark hair, but there are times when you look nothing like Sylas. I do have to say that when I first saw you, my initial reaction was "he looks like my dad!" Maybe it was the dark hair...who knows.
Deacon, you are the luckiest little brother in the whole world! Sylas loves you so much! It's absolutely adorable and warms my heart to see him interact with you. He is always perfectly gentle with you, rubbing your belly and caressing your face. He is there for every diaper change and almost every feeding. He has offered to feed you (a very funny story) and is always offering to hold you for me. He is always comforting you when you are upset saying things like "what's the matter, buddy?" or "it's o-day (OK) Deacon," and he very often will give you a hug, kiss your face, and say "I luzz (love) you, Deacon." There is nothing I wish for more than for your relationship to always be this precious.
I love you so much baby boy, and am looking forward to you being awake more and more as you grow so that I can actually play with you! I am thankful to God for you every day. Happy One Month, baby boy!
