Valentines and 1 Month

We can't believe how fast time flies. Our family just celebrated our first holiday together, and even Porter got valentines from some family members. It was so much fun. Porter has not ceased to grow and gain weight. As you can see he is a little chunker now, which means that he is healthy. (Wouldn't it be great if that was true for every age?) Last time we went to the doctor Porter weighed 11 lbs. even and we think that he is a little over 23" long. Wow! I can't believe how much he has grown from looking at the pictures of him when he was first born. He has really filled out.

We got our first family picture taken on Valentine's Day, but Porter protested and didn't want to participate. Unfortunately, mom and dad made him do it anyway. I think he was actually hungry at that time.

We have also celebrated Porter's one month birthday on the same day as Presidents Day was recognized. Mom and dad ate chocolate cake. (Porter got it a little later that night.) How fun it has been to watch him grow and progress. He experiments with his vocal cords and is learning how to sleep better at night. Mom and dad are very excited for that. But we are still trying to figure out who he looks like more. We have not got it down yet.
