I'm in love

This little man has stolen my heart.
I thought maybe having a boy wouldn't be quite as "fun": where's the pink and all the bows??
But I find I can't get over how handsome he is. His chubby cheeks and round head. His soft soft skin. Even the sometimes dry, crackly upper lip I love. He is perfection to me.

He's already so tough, despite the "abuse" his sisters give him, he doesn't have much to say about it. He's never been much of a cryer, preferring to grunt instead saying, "I'm uncomfortable." He's already packing on the pounds. I just wish I could convince him to stretch out those every-two-hour feedings so we could sleep a little bit more.

I thought our life was pretty slow and content before he came, but he's caused us to slow down even more. Granted, this kind of "slow" isn't quiet or leave hours for self reflection.We rarely leave the house, and keep to ourselves more than I'm used to. I know it won't stay this way forever, so we are enjoying getting to know each other for this season. 

Thank God for this precious little boy.


  1. I really liked this post. A: isn't it amazing how even though you already have two kids and it isn't new anymore you can still be so smitten! B: Jase is only going two hours too...I'm not alone:) C: it totally feels like we will never be back in the normal rhythm again! You're awesome.

  2. D: he and his little outfit are adorable!!!
