Dear Jack,
 
Another month where I am telling you to slow down!  Also another month where your dad and I proclaim that this is our favorite stage.  Except for the fussy nights due to stupid teething you are a dream baby with such a huge personality.  It's like you know exactly when the camera is on and how to turn up the cuteness.  Do I see modeling in your future?  Maybe you will just be a charmer.  You are more outgoing at home and tend to be shy and introverted when we get out in public...just like how I was at your age. 
 
Some people think it's crazy that your dad and I haven't had a proper date night since having you.  We just can't think of anything better than being with you on the weekends and after work.  We will work on that though!  I haven't really left you alone much (aside from the weekly grocery store trip) since having you.  I know I need to work on this, but I just cherish my time with you so much especially since I'm away from you during the week.
 
I can't wait to celebrate your first Christmas and share you with all of our family and friends.  Boy are you going to get spoiled!
 
Love,
Momma...practice saying it Ma-Ma

  1. Love reading Jack's monthly updates and seeing how much him and Hadley are alike! And then I think - oh, crap! I need to write Had's before she turns 8 months old in just a few days! Aaaah...

  2. PS - Yes, THAT is a picture of me pregnant. With my first child. Nearly three years ago. Probably should get on updating that too!

  3. Such a cutie!! I can not wait to start feeding Brody real food!!! I'm sure it will be a mess at first, but I can't wait to see the faces he makes. I'm so impressed with your baby food making skills too!
