It's been three months since our precious Everette Lawrence stole our hearts, and T and I ask each other everyday how we ever lived life without him.
This past month has been an awesome one for our little guy. He sleeps 10-12 hours at night, nurses every 2-3 hours during the day, drinks about 4.5 ounces if he's taking a pumped bottle, enjoys the Ergo, found his hands and is using them to grab toys, loves to look at himself in the mirror, discovered his tongue, and is starting to give us little giggles! I could listen to him "talk" and coo all day long. He is such a happy boy, and will always give you a big grin when you lock eyes with him and smile.
Perhaps my favorite thing about this month is how he's fallen in love with his big sister. It's like he all of a sudden realized she's here, and you can feel their unconditional love. She always helps me put him down for his naps, rocking him and singing him her own, made-up songs. And when she's in the room, he will not take his eyes off of her, following her every move and just smiling and cooing at her. Watching them love each other is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. <3
Everette Lawrence, you are an absolute bundle of joy... the happiest baby who truly lights up our world.
And you remind me each and everyday that all good things are worth fighting for.
