One Month Today!

The cute little stink is already a month old and I'm looking back at it wondering where all the time went..... but these truely are the best of times! I couldn't be happier (or more sleep deprived). I am so excited for each day to see how it is different from the day before.

Thanks Grandma Wells!

I loved playing dress ups as a kid and I love it now too, as I have a live doll to play with. Ashtyn wasn't to happy with some of the pictures as you can tell. But we got through them and got some pretty cute pictures of the little guy and we owe it to Grandma Wells. She bought the outfit when he was born and it has been my favorite to dress him up in so far. Especially the shoes! They are tiny and I love them.... thanks Renee :)

As of last friday, the 10th, he weighed 9 lbs 11 oz. He is growing like a weed! He is starting to get the chunky thighs and cheeks. He smiles unvolentarily right now and he is blessed with my dimples! Yeah!

He loves the water. Every time we take him out he gets pretty upset, which I can't blame him... I love warm baths too :)

Loving being a mom!

Wow! Words can't explain how happy I am to be a full time mom! Don't get me wrong, we still have some rough nights, but nothing can compair to the rough days and nights that we had with Ayden. Ashtyn is such and joy to Joe and I and we charish and thank Heavenly Fathers each day for the opporitunity to be parents and have a healthy, happy baby. It is so crazy to think that he is already two weeks old, and I know that time is going to just keep going faster.

He is so much fun! Typically he is awake and alert from about nine to noon and then again from about six to nine in the evening. He is so alert and loves to just look around. He hardly cries, just when he is hungry or has gas. Other than that he is as happy as can be. Nights are getting better. As long as I keep it dark, after I feed him, he usually falls right back to sleep and doesn't wake up till he is hungry again.

He loves cuddling with mom too. That will not last I'm sure, but I will just enjoy it for now. Well the little guy just woke up, so I am off!
