1 month

Little buddy, you have had a very busy first month of life!
I'm glad to have you as a travel buddy and my side kick.
I enjoy your company very much
You're so serious. 
You are still a very content baby, but we have yet to see you smile at us.
Apparently, you smiled at your Honey and I might be a little jealous. 

Within your fourth week of life:

you met your Granny
She came in town for the weekend with your Grammy and un-named grandpa (ha!, we're working on his grandad name)
You loved it and were spoiled rotten. as you should be, right?

you got lots and lots of loving from your Grammy and just stared at her.
p.s. i love your little chin rested on your little folded arms

Beau was also in town and actually gave you a kiss on your head!

best friend cousins in the making

sweet cuddles with your g-daddy(?)

you took a bottle for the first time and took it like a champ! 
a whole new world for your mommy

you also held your own bottle
no joke
well....we had to place your hands there, but you kept 'em there.
perhaps it has something to do with your crazy long fingers

you had your first real bath in a tub and...
it was cute, afterwards....
you HATED it. every single second of being naked. hated it. 
luckily, we have tried another kind of tub since and you LOVED it (pics to come) 

you played on your play mat for the first time

"played" is to be used loosely
you just looked around and discovered there's more to look at than my face. and quite liked it, i think

i just love your little grunt-y voice and can't wait to hear more of it.

You are a very vocal little guy and let us know every time you have some gas. isn't that special.
you are awake SO much more during the day and I love our time just talking and looking at each other
you go 4 hours in between feeds at night and it's lovely
you are one long little bean pole, but your belly is starting to get cute and round
you love nothing more than laying on someones chest 
you do a great job of going to sleep by yourself for a nap during the day on your beloved nap-nanny
you have blue eyes like your dad and i hope they stay that way. they are big and just beautiful
you had your first Thanksgiving and are definitely my favorite little turkey
you traveled to Tyler, Tx twice and are a great traveler... luckily, because we do a lot of it in our family.

There's so much more for you to do and see and learn and I am so excited I get to be the one to share all of it with you. 
Your dad and I get to be the ones to watch you experience new things and I LOVE that.
We love you, little Judson Ray, and look forward to watching you grow!
