I Will Always Remember

Jude Scott,

It doesn't seem possible that a month has already gone by since the moment 
I first held you in my arms and kissed your tiny forehead.
You already feel so much bigger in my arms than you did in that moment.
This makes me both happy and sad.  It makes me happy because it means you are
healthy and growing.  It makes me sad because it means in just a few blinks of an eye
you will no longer be my baby boy, but instead you will be walking, talking, 
and running right along side all your big sisters.  Luckily, I know each month leading up 
to that time will be filled with just as many precious memories as this first one was.
The memories from our first month together will always hold a special place in my heart.
I will always remember how you feel snuggled up against my chest with your head 
resting ever so gently on my shoulder.  You prefer to be held this way 
as opposed to being cradled.  I will always remember your first smiles.  
They are so sweet, soft, and genuine.  Each one that spreads across your face
fills my heart with even more love for you than is already there.
I will always remember the sound of your first coos, which came as you
were sitting in your bouncy seat and I was in the kitchen.
I was so excited to hear your little voice.  I came running over to you
and kissed your little baby nose.  You are still figuring out that your voice can be used
for more than just crying and every tiny sound you make is like music to my ears.
I will always remember the dark blue and grayish color of your eyes and how it took
us about a week to get a good look at them because you slept so much.  
I'm anxious to see if they stay this color or if they will change to something
completely different.  I will always remember how much you hate it when I clean 
between your toes and I am curious to see how long this lasts.  Maybe you
are going to be like your Momma and think feet are absolutely disgusting.
Jude Scott, I will always remember how easy it was to fall in love with you the moment
I first saw you and how natural being your Momma is to me.  
I was made for you and you were made for me.  You are my handsome
little boy and I have cherished everything about this first month together.
I look forward to every month we will share in the future.  I know each one 
will be incredible, memorable, and filled with a huge amount of love.
Thank you for the powerful impact you have already had on my life and for being
the perfect way for your Daddy and me to complete our family.

I love you with all my heart sweet boy.

I think he looks like a roaring lion here.
