Porter,

You are such a joy. I mean that. You are the happiest little baby on the block, and I'm not sure what I did to deserve such an angel. Maybe God knew that your dad and I needed a well-behaved first child, and your future brothers and sisters are going to be little hellions... either way, we were blessed big time with your cheerful self.

Each week gets easier and easier. Feedings have regulated, you never had an issue with eating. It's one of my favorite times with you!

You love to be out and about with us, but you hate it when we leave you in your carseat for too long. You love to look around, soak in all the sights, smile at strangers. Everyone comments on how sweet you are... there's no better word for it. You're just as sweet as can be.

You're sitting up on your own unassisted, but you're still a little wobbley. You love new toys, and spend hours just turning them over and over in your hands in amazement. You smile when you see Sophie, or the little bug that Auntie Maggie and Amelia gave you.

You watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse in the morning, and you're usually ready for a nap every couple hours. You love to sleep. It works out well for me, because I work from home and need that time to respond to clients and stare at reports.


You finally fit into hats, and your dad could not be more thrilled. Below, you wore cousin Noah's future golfer hat for a walk around the waterfront on one particularly sunny Wednesday in April. I like to pull it to the side (baby gangster), but your dad gets mad at me. Hipster, not gangster.
