blake :: one month old

our little blake is one month old and a bit. 


:: this little munchkin lights up my whole world::

but man! it felt like the longest month ever in my life! (probably was longer because we hardly sleep much these days! lmao) we started out an smug parents bragging "blakie wakes up only for ONE feed in the night. wahoooo!". *insert snob-face* but as it turns out, he was slightly jaundiced and that might be why he was so drowsy. and now that he is older and hopefully better, he is doing the baby thang and waking up frightfully often through the night.

i was awfully sleep-deprived and whinge-y the other day and texted my girlfriend, pam, "please tell me it gets better." cos she's one of those girls who always seem to always have their act together and juggles everything with this ease and style. did i mention she has three awesome kiddos? she told me how at the start, she told herself all she needed to do was to keep the kids alive and everything else was a bonus. i laughed. and took a nap. but it really did make me feel better. 

mommy woes aside...

it has also been the most wonderful month. he loves his tummy time. tries to stand each time we hold him up. he follows our voices and recognizes us when we walk into the room. and has the most charming little smile when we give him kisses. and these little things grow so fast right in front of your eyes. in fact, i have a few teeny-tiny socks and onesies that don't fit over his little tumtums anymore. oh my heart. 

happy one month, bubba. you've made us so very contented and we love you to the moon and back. 

xx,
mami, papi and muumuu.

  9. Good so glad it made you feel better! :) (although its the whole truth.) You are doing great hunni! And if you do need a break, call us out for a cuppa. I could help with baby carrying duties. ;)

    Btw, did you check out younghouselove.com they did a similar series of pics with their little gal for months till she turned one. :)
