OK, this week there is really only one thing on my mind.
My son was born August 2nd, weighing in at 6 pounds, 11 ounces. I am completely enamored. To me, he is the cutest little guy ever. I simply cannot express how much I love this little guy.
The last couple of weeks have been very full. I am fairly sleep deprived, but incredibly happy. Already the time seems to be going too quickly. I just want to hold on to things exactly as they are. I love him exactly as he is- all of the little body parts, little fingers and toes and his little ear that has a little crinkle. I feel as though I could just sit and hold him forever and be content. I don’t want him to grow up, even though I’m excited for all of the cool things that lie ahead.
It seems as though I do not have enough time for getting the things done that I want… like posting about his birth. Once his needs are met and I spend a bit of extra time snuggling him and I get a bare minimum amount of sleep there are precious few hours left in the day. We’ve had a fair bit of company wanting to meet him which has been both good and a bit exhausting. Hopefully we’ll find just a little more time to rest, recuperate and catch up on a few things I want to do like taking more pictures while he’s still all tiny. And then maybe we’ll find more time to catch up on chores and other things. Not to mention my job. Most likely, things will continue to feel chaotic and crazy, but perhaps each day I’ll make a little time for these things.
In the mean time, here’s a few of the best pictures that I have managed to take.
Cutest little guy ever!

Congratulations, Kyla! Wonderful news!! (and gorgeous photos of the little one). x x
Yay! Congratulations!! I’m so happy for you. I know you’re going to hear this about a thousand times, but this time in your life is going to fly by incredibly quickly (even while it feels endless) so savor the moments and (as much as possible) ignore the chores. It’s a great time to learn to appreciate paper plates, take-out, and dust bunnies. It’ll get much, much easier as time goes by, so live in the moment. But it’s also a wonderful time to write–not for us, but for you, because you’re going to be surprised at how much you forget later. I found a journal that I kept very sporadically during the first year of my son’s life when I was cleaning out my house last year and I was so glad to have those feelings brought back to me. Your photos are great and he is beautiful!
Thank you. Ignoring chores is not something I’m good at, but maybe this is a good time to practice! I definitely need to make journaling and taking pictures a priority. It’s hard to work in with everything else, but I definitely want to save these memories. I already notice changes in him- becoming stronger, spending more time really alert, and fussing a bit more and his newborn clothes are starting to get smaller!
