I cannot believe that Graham has been in our lives for a month already! In one way, it feels like he was just born yesterday; but in another, we don’t remember what life was like before he was part of our family.
There is nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said by any other new parent, and parenthood is an experience that can’t really be accurately explained, anyway. All I will say is that my heart has never felt this kind of love, and it is probably the first time in my life that I’ve truly been able to slow down and just take in each moment, whether it’s smiley, barfy, tear-filled, gurgly, pee-stained or sleepy. I’ve always been one to feel rushed through life, like I’m never just being still and enjoying the little moments, and I just can’t bear to see that happen with this little guy. If a month has already gone this fast, I can’t imagine what the next several years will feel like, so I plan to slow down and enjoy every moment possible.
