You are ONE MONTH OLD !!!!

So MANY photos to choose from - we are gonig to start with these and there will be more soon!

Happy Happy One Month Birthday Max Harrison!!!!

You are amazing!

And I am too tired to type much right now - and I have to run and go feed you!!

I want to say so many things to you - and about you - and share with the world how much in love we are with you.

Hopefully just posting these photos and trying to document everything we see and experience about you will be enough to convey all the love that is bursting up out of both of our hearts for you.

I'm so glad you are doing so well. Your heart is in perfect shape, your muscle tone is great, you sleep so well, not fussy, you love being held, and we love holding you. You could sleep more then 5 hours at a stretch if we didn't get you up at night for your feeding time. You seem to be looking at us more and more and we love looking you in the eyes and singing songs to you.

We got a new sling for me to wear you in and I just love it and you seem to love it too! it's a k'tan sling. It gives me support on both shoulders which feels so good. You slept on me today after your last feeding and I could walk around the house - hands free while you are safe and cuddled up against me and you can feel my heart beating and I can feel your body move as you breathe. It's AWESOME!!!

We also got a new swaddling blanket that I think God designed. It's perfect. You love it. Sleep soundly in it, and you can't get yourself out of it which is relieving at 3am.

I feel like I keep posting the same things over and over about you.
Because all I see is perfection!

ok ok ok
Off to feed you, diaper you, hold you, feel your soft skin and love on you as much as possible before passing out from exhaustion.

Haaaaapppy Biiiirrrrrthdayyyyyyyy tooooooooo youuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!

You are my sunshine
my only sunshine
you make me happy when skies are gray
you'll never know dear
how much I love you
please don't take my sunshine away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

p.s. - to all of you who are reading this - pray to the breast milk gods that the milk comes in soon. Like today!
Max is great with formula and would love some breast milk too.
Don't need advice here - we get plenty of it from our lactation consultant, pediatrician, friends who have kids, etc. Just prayers please and positive thinking and visualizing lots and lots of milk. Over flowing. For Max!

Happy Birthday, Max! You get cuter with each passing day. As if that were possible. But it is!!!!! (p.s. flowing rivers and squirting babies in the face - this is what I visualize for your mama!)

Visualizing. Knowing. Loving.

So so happy to see such happiness in you.
