Samuel Kreis Birth Story

The newest addition to the Deyerle family is already 3 months old, so I figure it’s about time that I write out his birth story before the details get more fuzzy than they already are.

James is ONE!

Sweet Baby James | Month 3

My sweet baby James has officially transitioned from a floppy newborn to a plump baby! Month 3 has been so sweet and just keeps getting sweeter each day! So many new developments and changes each day! And if it’s even possible, loving him more and more each day. I’ve asked some of my friends with small children what their favorite age has been. And they always say the age they are at that moment, which tells me that it’s just going to keep getting better and sweeter! Child rearing is such a bittersweet struggle between wanting them to stay small forever, but also look forward to what the next day brings!

Sweet Baby James | Month 2

They weren’t kidding when they said to cherish every day with your baby because they grow so fast!! In just a month, our floppy newborn has turned into a real baby! He’s noticing the world around him, growing like a weed and flashing us the sweetest smiles! It’s really fascinating to watch him grow and change each day. I often find myself scrolling through the many pictures of him in my phone in disbelief over how much he’s changed. He doesn’t even look like the same baby we brought home from the hospital! All these changes are so bittersweet as it’s going by too fast, but I also look forward to the new developments that each day will bring!

Sweet Baby James | Month 1

Sweet baby James is 1 month old!! Well, technically he’s 1 month and 10 days, but I’ve come to accept the reality that blog posts are just not going to get up when I intend them to anymore! Holy cow, just answering a simple email can be a struggle sometimes! I think I’ve sat down to write this blog post every day for the last 2 weeks just to get pulled away 2 minutes later. Gotta love that newborn life!
