Ethan Is One Month!

Ethan turned one month old today! It's so hard to believe it's already been a month and it's even crazier to see how much he's grown in comparison to his newborn photographs. (By the way, how cute are his onesie stickers?! Bethany at The Momma Monologues got them for him as a gift! Aren't they adorable?!) It's been such a whirlwind month, but I mean that in the best of ways. Being a mommy has been the most wonderful thing in the world and even with all of the health issues that I had at the beginning, I can honestly say this has been the greatest month ever.

I was super excited to do his one month photo shoot today. Ethan, however? He decided this was all he was going to give me:

...So we called it quits and waited until right before he fell asleep in his Rock & Play Sleeper to get those cute shots we began this post with. Another lesson in the fact that motherhood often means going with the flow! I decided to make prints of both for his baby book. I'm sure one day he'll find humor in the outtakes!

Ethan had a pretty exciting one month birthday, though! My husband and I took him down to visit his great-great-grandmother, Jennie, today for a visit! He slept for most of the visit but still got lots of cuddle time in with his great-great-grandmother. I still think it's pretty great that Ethan gets a great-great-grandmother! Here I was thinking I was super special for just having a great-grandmother! It was a little bit tough being there and looking at my Nonno's empty chair. It was hard not to look at it and imagine him still sitting there and those thoughts prompted ones of thinking how much Nonno would love to hold Ethan in that very chair. It's moments like this where I feel so thankful for my birth (despite the trauma, really) and for the fact that Ethan made his arrival into the world on Nonno's birthday.

Ethan also received a special gift from his Uncle Mikey:

It's an ocean themed mini-guitar to match his nursery theme! Isn't that awesome?! Ethan is one spoiled little boy with so many people who love him! (But how can you not love him?! He's pretty darn lovable, if I don't say so myself!)

Ethan's excitement didn't end there! My aunt Fran is in town visiting from Pennsylvania. She flew in to meet Ethan and stay for ten days (we'll call her Granny Franny from here on out, as I'm desperately trying to make that one stick!). She brought with her Regal tickets for Aaron and I, and she and my mother (who I affectionately refer to as The Babysnatchers!) saw Aaron and I off to dinner and a movie while they took custody of Ethan for the evening. Now, Granny Franny is another one of those super-special relatives who I know Ethan will be extremely close to and love very much just as we do! She claims to not understand the blogging world ("People actually go on the computer just to read your crap?!") but I know she's reading this right this very second! I caught you, Granny Franny! You love reading my crap!

My husband and I then set off for dinner at Seasons 52 followed by a movie (A Little Help). Towards the end of the film, I was admittedly getting a bit antsy because I missed my little boy so much!

All in all, it's been a great month. My first month as a mommy has been nothing short of perfect. My little Ethan, thank you for being the best son anyone could ever ask for. I love you more than there are stars in the sky and with every last fiber of my being. You are my world.


  1. This was beautiful Lindsay! Happy One Month Ethan! :) Isn't it amazing how one little teeny human can take FOREVER to grow inside your belly, but once they are on the outside world, it goes extremely fast?

  2. So sweet!!! Hard to believe it's been a month already! I love the family picture of you guys -- it's perfect :o)

  3. Happy One Month Ethan!!!
    I saw a nice frame at the mall the other day and it made me think of you....
    It said:
    You walked right in to my heart, long before you were able to take your first steps.

    That's Ethan and you - in one beautiful sentence.

  4. Ah sweet! Ethan is precious, and I love that last picture.

    Mostly, though, I want to say I would love to steal that guitar! :)
