One month. How is it possible that this baby has been here one month? (Update: Weston is actually 6 weeks now...his mama has just been too busy to finish this post that's been sitting unfinished for over a week.) And he's changed so much already, I can hardly keep up. I've found that a HUGE part of being a parent is hanging on to fleeting moments and trying to enjoy them to the fullest...at least it's been that way for me. It's so easy to get overwhelmed with a newborn when he's not able to do anything for himself, but I've had to stop and remind myself that he's only this little for such a short time...and I'd better soak up every second. Because all too soon he won't need me to put his paci back in when it falls out, or feed him, or change his diaper. So, that's what's been happening around here...me trying to enjoy every little detail about this short time when I'm home with my boy and it's just the two of us.
But, there have been a few happenings other than sitting on our butts at home.
We've had LOTS of visitors...these are just a few.
|Cousin Bre. Shout out to Bre and Britt for driving 2 hours and cleaning my house, folding my laundry, and taking me out for Mexican food before I went to the hospital. I've said it before and I'll say it again...best. family. ever.|
|My good friend Christy|
|Weston's great grandma "KK"|
|My best friend Brittany|
|The pictures are by Natalie Gray Photography...we loved her!|
|My dad had to move to Colorado for work a month before Weston arrived, so he wasn't able to be there with the rest of the family when he was born. Now my mom has moved out there too...tears :(|
|This is me praying Weston wouldn't start screaming at the reception.|
|Please ignore hair...mine, not Weston's.|
