Ramsey Moore! You are a whole month old!! WHAAAT?! when did that even happen?
This has been quite a month for us all! You are so beautiful, precious boy! Your hair and cheeks still amaze me just like they did as soon as I first looked at you!
-When you're mad, you get a red mark between your eyes
-you have a dimple on your right cheek

-you have mastered the smile. sometimes you smile so big that your eyebrows and forehead raise up
-you've had SOOOO many blow out diapers... most have been when you're sitting in my lap haha
-you have the longest wingspan i've ever seen on a baby!
-again, your hair is amazing, and the roots are starting to look super light
-skin tone is so dark
-you're a super aggressive eater-- just like your dad
-i think you would nurse all day if i would let you
-love to swing
-hate the bouncer
-love the sound machine
-love to be swaddled and recently demand your arms out
-NO to pacis (we have tried four different kinds)

-love millie voice and you always smile when you hear her (she talks to you in a SUPER high pitched tone ha)
-grunt a lot

-you look best in red and navy
-you have pretty deep blue eyes right now
-your lips are so puffy/pouty and i just want to kiss them
Favorite moments this month:
-one of our first nights home you were crying.. a lot... we couldn't figure it out. your daddy was changing your diaper around 10:30 and you were screaming!!!!! nothing would soothe you.. so i leaned over to shhh in your ear (and might have tried to nurse you while he was changing you).. i felt a warmth on my back and in my hair... you were peeing all over me!
-first bath: millie pulled the plug on your bath without us knowing... water went alllllll over the counter, down the cabinets, and all over my phone and camera...... we scooped you out and your dad and tone tone started cleaning up so i went to put clothes on y ou and you peed all over me again!
-our first big outing was taking you and your sister to the splash park in bentonville
-we were all four sitting on the couch one night laughing and having a happy time....you were in my lap laid against my knees facing me-- i look down and you have poop in your belly button... spewing out of every side of your diaper!!!
-I was changing your diaper that had gotten all over me. laid you in the living room floor and millie steps in the poop diaper :)
-you pooped in my bed.. was all over the covers... millie was in there with us and she starts gagging "I cannot help you mom"
we are pretty sure you have reflux.. you are so super uncomfortable, arch your back when you spit up and scream (and you spit up.. all. the. time... ALL THE TIME)..you are inconsolable and we can't calm you down... you won't take a paci so really the only thing that we can do to help is for me to nurse you... it is the saddest thing.. you choke a lot when you try to swallow...
-finally took you back to the doctor at week 3 and thankfully saw Dr. McCord who prescribed us medicine...Zantac.. she said to give it 10 days and if it hadn't made you a "completely different baby" to come back to get stronger meds...
-we are praying this helps and that you are able to find some comfort and relief, Mister. it is so hard to see you like this.. your daddy said "I feel like i haven't even met my son yet".. we are ready for happy healthy Ramsey!
WE LOVE YOU!!!!!
MILLIE! you're getting so old, woman :). We love you, too! You have been the BEST big sister to your brother... I could not have prayed for you to love him more! it's amazing. Thank you! It makes it all much easier that you care so much about him. You are the first responder when he cries.. and usually say something like "Rams is crying" "Mommy you need to help him" "Rams is mad at you mommy" :)
-you ask to hold him all the time & as soon as i come get you in the morning or from nap you ask if he is awake.. .hearing you say " is rams awake"through your paci just melts me (but that paci needs to go, sister)
-you console him "it's okay rams... it's okay" and are constantly touching him saying "hey buddy bud"
some of our favorite things you say these days:
-"which one you pick?'
-"I take my Jesus with us in the car, mom... here you carry my Jesus book" (bible)
-you sing jesus loves me, zacchaeous, happy am i, deep and wide, twinkle twinkle... ally the time
-'what her daddy's name mom"
-"you stand in the kitchen" when you're pooping..
"put my shoes on off"
"daddy run with me?"
-"build a castle with me"
-'what in da woooold (world.. i love love love how you say that word) "
-"sing another song to me mom" when i'm rocking you
