one month new
Wilder Ray is ONE MONTH
our little Dubs is one month old already and I'm seriously trying to comprehend where in the heck the time has gone. it seems like yesterday we were meeting him for the first time. cliche, I know, but it's the truth! he's changed SO much in just the 31 days he's been earth side and this new mama is feeling all the feels!

Wilder is SUCH a good eater and I feel beyond blessed about it. we are exclusively breastfeeding and it is going so well! he's already gained 3 lbs since birth and is up to 9 lbs! I'm thanking Jesus every day because it definitely didn't start out easy (I don't think it ever does) but it feels like second nature now and Wilder is thriving. ahh it's just a dream come true.
ps: from a first time mama, can I just say that I'm convinced nursing is the most incredible thing that God created. I cry nearly every time because of how amazing it is. not only the bond that continues to grow between me and my boy, but just the fact that I'm the only one who can provide this for my baby. our bodies are incredible and it's truly a miraculous thing.

this little guy is starting to keep his eyes open more and more every day. he's still a pretty sleepy newborn, but he's discovering new things every day and so are we. he LOVES tummy time and can hold his head up really well. he can also turn from his tummy to his side pretty much all by himself. I'm biased, of course, but I think it's pretty amazing. my strong little man.
can't wait to see what the next month brings!
