One Month: Happy Birthday, Tate!

Dearest Tate,
You will be one month old tomorrow! We will definitely celebrate, just like we celebrate every day that you're in our lives.
You are such a sweet, sweet boy, and we are incredibly grateful that you arrived safely and in strong health. You were over ten pounds at birth, which means you are quickly outgrowing your newborn diapers and clothes! You have to eat a lot to keep up your weight, and you make the cutest little snorting pig noises when you're hungry. You've also been incredibly strong from day one. You were born with amazing head control, and you seem to have a sixth sense when it comes to finding nipples when you're hungry. You even managed to latch onto your dad one time!

You also have the softest skin and the most kissable chubby cheeks. I honestly can't stop myself from kissing you constantly.
You also love to pee as soon as we take off your diaper. My favorite was when you peed on Henry. He wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry, but once your dad and I started laughing, Henry laughed, too.
Speaking of Henry, he absolutely adores you. He seriously loves everything about you. He is incredibly gentle when he rubs your head or belly. He loves to touch your feet and give you kisses. He brings you a pacifier when you need it, and he's always wants to help when you're crying.

We've had a lot of love and support this month. Your Mimi and Uncle Dustin came right after the birth, and then Mimi came again later in the month when your dad needed to go to Las Vegas for a conference. We've also had a steady stream of generous friends delivering meals three times a week. We are so thankful for everyone's generosity. 
You have made our family complete, Tate. We are thrilled that you are here, and we enjoy watching you grow every single day.
