one month!

dear jett elijah,
i can't believe you have been with us for a month now!
what a blessing you have been to your dad and i.
i cannot tell you how much we love you.
every single day you warm our hearts.
it's been an incredible journey getting to know you.
without fail you always make me smile even if we've had a hard day.
i love when you are drifting off to sleep and your big blue eyes begin to flutter.
i love when you are drifting off to sleep and you crack a smile and sometimes even chuckle.
i love how when we pick you up you are like a teddy bear that just melts into our arms.
i love that when i feed you you've got your hand wrapped around my finger.
i love that this past week you looked me in the eye and smiled.
i love that when you are upset we can hold you in front of us and within seconds you have calmed down with the sweetest look on your face.
i love that you have given your dad and i something exciting to do each night
(we sneak into your room and just stare at you because we cannot get over
how adorable you look when you are sleeping).
i love the moments you and i spend together in the late hours of the night.
i love that you have given us so much joy in our lives.
i love that you are my son.
we love you jett!
