Dear Samuel

Dear Samuel,
Oh little man...you are growing up too fast.


You had your one month appointment at the pediatrician this week. You weigh 9lbs, 6 oz. and you are 22 1/2 inches.

You gained 2 1/2 lbs and grew 2 1/2 inches.

I am going to quit feeding you. I don't want you to grow up. Not yet.

I can hardly believe you are here....and before I know it you'll be 16.

I don't want to sleep. I don't want to blink. I don't want to look away.

I'm afraid the next time I look at you or wake up, you'll be a toddler, then a child, then a teenager, then a man.

I know they say every stage is more fun than the last.

But this stage is so so sweet. And it goes by so fast. And I'll never get it back again.

So stay small my sweet baby boy...my little miracle man...for just a little while longer.

Stacy,
I am so glad that you are continuing to proclaim this miracle! I am still telling everyone who will listen.

I'm glad you are enjoying every minute of motherhood. I'm rejoicing with you!
