Beau Samuel James | One Month Old ♥

On May 19th I gave birth to our second precious son, Beau Samuel James and today he's one month old. I know it's such a clichéd thing for a parent to say, but time really has flown by the past four weeks - I'm putting it down to having a newborn to look after as well as a very active, loud and easily bored toddler too, time sure does fly when you're having fun.

This past month has been amazing and one of the happiest times in my life so far. I'm absolutely besotted with my baby boy and I've been taking these precious newborn weeks to get to know him, introduce him to the world around him, settle him into a routine and take lots of pictures of him of course. It feels like our little Beau has always been with us. He's such a little dote and is so good to us, waking just once in the early hours of the morning for a feed and being so placid during the day, he's an absolute blessing.

Beau is such a content little baby who'd love nothing better than to sit in someones arms all day and have them talk to him. Yesterday he lay in my grandmothers arms and wouldn't stop smiling at her as she talked, it was so sweet to watch. I'm sure these little smiles and giggles he's giving now aren't just wind because he smiles when he hears Tyler's voice if he's lying in his cot and he smiles at me if I say hello to him whilst picking him up. He's such a happy little baby and he's a joy to be around. I hope he's always happy in life.

Beau has already changed so much in appearance since he was born. He was born with a head full of shiny dirty blonde hair but this has since changed to a dark red/auburn shade which is beautiful, but he's begun to lose his hair so I wonder what colour it will be next. His eyes are a very deep blue, the same shade as his big brothers and they have a design around his pupils that reminds me of the outline of a flower - so beautiful. He's been growing so quickly too, already a big boy to begin with at 9lbs 11oz when he was born I think he's on or over the 12lb mark at this stage. He was 57cm long when he was measured two weeks ago but he's probably well over that now too. He's outgrown so many of his sweet little clothes already and I'm not sure weather to give them away or to keep them...

In Beau's short life we've already done and seen so much with him. He's had his first trip the beach, his first visit to a castle when we had a family day out in Blarney Castle last week, spent afternoons strolling around Fota House and Gardens, had his first trip to Fota Wildlife Park, visited another county - Waterford, had his first bath, had my first solo outing with him and he's met a lot of people over the past few weeks, from friends to family. I'm so thankful that he's a summer baby and that we've been able to enjoy the lovely sunny weather as a family.

I'm getting to know Beau and learning his little quirks, loves and dislikes in life. He absolutely hates wearing hats, so as you can imagine, getting these pictures was a challenge, I had to wait until he was asleep! He's very alert now during the day and he sleeps all night and I've been trying to keep him entertained by babywearing with him in the Kari-Me wrap I recently bought, laying him in his pram or on his playmat to gaze at his Lamaze toys, putting him in his swing (he's not too fond of this either) and going for walks. He loves being snuggled and held close to my chest so babywearing has been ideal for us and I'm loving it because I didn't try it out with Tyler until he was much older.


We love you so much Beau Samuel James, we are blessed to have you, our beautiful baby boy.
