I can't believe how fast Ewan's first month flew by! I'm getting the hang of the mommy thing now and Jeff has been an awesome dad. Ewan is healthy, happy, and growing every day. I can't wait until his check-up next month to see how much he's really grown. He's still trying to figure out how to use his arms and hands. Every so often he will reach his mouth to suck on his hand and it makes him so happy and proud of himself. He's starting to smile and he now recognizes my voice. When I talk, he will look around the room to see where I'm at - that is the most special thing in the world to me right now. I love him and love how much he needs me. The first few weeks were hard work being that they were full of adjustments and learning curves, but things have started to settle. We are now able to really take everything in and enjoy time spent with eachother, all three of us. I have been reminiscing about my pregnancy the last couple of days.... how just a month ago Ewan was still in my belly, how we spent our days imagining when he'd come and what he'd look like, and how we tried to prepare ourselves in every way possible as we became parents for the first time.
Here is a very special video clip of the morning of August 7th, the day Ewan was born. We were walking up and down Laguna Beach trying to get labor going. Little did we know that we'd be at the hospital that evening awaiting his arrival.
