Dear Silas,

Today you are one month old! Your dad and I couldn’t be more in love. I can’t believe how much you’ve grown this past month. The little onesies that fit you just weeks ago are now too small. You are eating ALL the time.  Some days it seems that’s all we do. I’m learning to be okay with it. You also poop, a lot. And fart really loud. Hearing you crap your pants never gets old. Besides eating and pooping you spend your days making lots of funny faces and lots of funny noises. You squeal like a pig, whimper like a puppy, screech like a dolphin, baa like a sheep and neigh like a horse (to name a few). You make this one face that resembles a duck or fish, and it seems as though you are whistling or modeling. We can’t really tell what you are doing so we just make it up. We also like to speak for you since you can’t yet. Your favorite thing to say scream is “give me boobies!” Boobies are your favorite. So far you’ve met all your grandparents, but you still have SO many people to meet. We are planning a trip to Macomb in a couple weeks. Yes, we are crazy for taking a 6 week old on an 8-hour road trip. I’m guessing it will end up being closer to 12 hours, or if you keep up these eating habits, it could take days. We shall see. Oh, your hair. Everybody LOVES your locks. I swear you’re going to need a haircut in the next few weeks. A rattail is beginning to form, and we just can’t have that. We are learning to live as a family of three. You are the sweetest little baby. Papa and I are so lucky to have you. I can’t wait to see what the next month holds.

xo, mama
