Growing Up

Erick is a month old today. Some days it feels like he's always been a part of our family and he's been here longer than a month and at other times I sit back and can't believe it's already been a month. He's getting so big! When he was born, he weighed 8lbs 15 oz and was 21 inches long. At his 2 week appointment he weighted 9 lbs 7 oz and was 21 1/2 inches long. I'm not sure where he is at now but I'm sure he's well on his way to 11 pounds.

In the past month he's met his Grandma and Grandpa Loa (David and Barbara, Alex's dad and step mom) and Grandma RuRu (which is what his mom wants to be called) as well as Oma and Opa (my mom and dad). He's met Auntie Cindy, Uncle James, his 2 cousins Emjae and Julie as well as his Uncle Erik.

It's been a fun month. I have loved being at home with him during the day and watching him grow. I just wish he wouldn't grow up so fast. Time truly does fly and they really do grow up fast. My hope is that I remember to cherish the little moments that we get.
