I once heard a saying “To know the value of one month, just ask the mother of a premature baby” Thankfully that is something I have never experienced, however it did get me thinking of the value of one month.
This past Wed., Son was one month old.
So, what is the value on one month?
In one month Son has gone from being a sleepy, quiet newborn to a baby with distinct preferences (being held) and dislikes (being put down). He has gone from having a wobbly head to a small measure of control. He was gone from 8.2 lbs, down to 7.3 and up to 10.8.
Most of all however, in one month he has gone from being a tiny, hidden mystery veiled inside the womb to being Our Baby.
