Dear beetle. Week nine was a lot.
It was your second week in Michigan and it was cold and icy and it was just a lot.
But we bundled you up and we had a blast at three different Christmas parties!
You had a full belly most of the time and hardly ever cried. Which by the way you only cry for three and a half things. If your hungry, if your diaper is dirty or being changed and if your uncomfortable.
We are so lucky with you.
Passed out milk drunk.
Meeting Santa for the first time. Your Santa was a badass and had piercing a and a neck tattoo hahaha we loved it.
Went out to dinner at Fridays. Fridays is a restaurant your papa Tim is in love with right now. You'll notice he goes through phases of different places that he loves. Currently it's Fridays. So Fridays is pretty cool. They have red and white stripes just like this and so when they saw papa Tim's grand baby sporting their stripes they all freaked and wanted to keep you to work there.
Snuggles with mommy at the eucher party at your great uncle Steve and great aunt mos house.
Chug racing with your cousin tommy. He won, but only because you got distracts and stopped eating.
Waiting to go get our family photos done. Daddy was being a grump as usual. He hates having photos done but he loves me so he does them anyways.
Your hands may still be tiny but they are growing fast. Mom needs to do your hand prints like maybe today.
Breastfed babies are the best babies and you are one stylish dude.
Getting in on game night.
And sleeping in with daddy the next day.
Merry Christmas beetle!! We prayed for you for a long time and this year Jesus and Santa and God himself got together to bring us you. You are our rainbow baby our goodness after the pain. Our happiness after sorrow. We lost three before you and I was so scared we would lose you too. But once we hit three months and then four. Five. Six. I knew you would be coming to love us.
Thank you for growing. Strong and big and perfect and beautiful. We love you!!
Papa Tim got you your first Christmas ornament.
Some tummy time. All your aunts are jealous because your cousins hated tummy time.
You and me!
I can't get over this hoodie on you.
Time is going so fast. You like kisses and standing and cuddling and eating. You smile and giggle and hold your head up and hold your hands. Your in size one diapers now and 0-3 month clothing. You get so mad sometimes but calm right down when I feed you. Sometimes your binkie works too but a guarenteed volume control is good food
Lots of love b man.
