The First Month
Wow, the first month of being a mom has been a blur and a whirlwind! So much is muddled in my mind because of the intense sleep deprivation. James, the first week you spent the majority of your time sunbathing in your Moses basket to get rid of your jaundice. After that you woke up and you have not liked to sleep ever since. JT you are worth every minute of it! Here are some highlights of your first month of life:
Getting to meet Granny Deb, Grandaddy, and Uncle David. Granny Deb and Grandaddy made it to
the hospital a few hours after you were born. You wore your ECU pirate outfit in honor of them. They brought you lots of presents and presents for your mommy and daddy. Uncle David came the next day. He had to fly and drive far and came right to the hospital even though it was late at night. It was so late that the regular doors were closed so he had to go through the emergency room- what a great uncle!
Your first night home you cried ALL night.
We hid in the bathroom with all the doors closed to try to let everyone else sleep, lol.

Your Nana and Pop came to visit when you were one week old. They took us out to eat for
the first time at Strawn’s. Nana cooked meals for us and helped take care of you. Your grandparents
love you so much!

You do not like to take naps unless you are being held by your mama. We have read every book on
sleep trying to figure out what to do!
