Happy 1 Month Birthday, Baby Cole!

It's been one month since you were born...what a precious month it has been! You are such a sweet, pleasant baby. Quite easy going, hardly making any noise at all. At the doctor last week (you were 23 days old), you weighed 7 lb 11 oz...which was your birth weight. This only confirmed to the doctor what we already knew, which was that you are suffering quite a bit from reflux and haven't gained much weight. We got some medicine for you and hope that we will soon see results. It is awful to see you so uncomfortable!

Your umbilical cord finally came off today, so you got your first real bath. You really seemed to enjoy it and were so calm and relaxed afterwards. It feels like you have already changed so much in only a month. You are staying awake longer and turning your head to look and listen when you hear voices. Today you enjoyed laying on your jungle play mat for the first time. Reid and Louisa still like to lay "in the jungle" and listen to the animal sounds...I'm sure you will enjoy it just as much as them.

What a precious Easter gift you were to us! You complete our family of 5 and have fit perfectly into our lives. We are so blessed that God chose us to be your parents and that he has trusted us with the huge responsibility of raising you. We love you Cole and can't wait to see the many ways that you will bless our lives in the months and years to come!

You take AMAZING pictures! The close up of him sleeping with his face turned toward the camera is my favorite!
