my precious baby is 5 weeks old today. how is it possible time is going by so fast?!
as i look into your eyes, watch you wrap your hand around my finger, or kiss your chubby cheek, i thank the Lord for the miracle of you. isn’t it a miracle God gave you to me? that out of all the mamas, He made you for me?! sometimes i can’t believe it, i have to catch my breath…the dream that i’d been dreaming is right here in my arms!
the fact that you’re a little miracle, made up of 1/2 your papa and 1/2 me, is incredible. i’m SO thankful for you, my sweet, precious sonshine!
when i see on the news or read on the net about babies who are still in the NICU, who are dying, who are in pain, who have gone to heaven early, i am even more aware of how much you mean to me. all the little troubles and annoyances papa and i have been going through seem like nothing in comparison.
i love you, sweet boy!!! no mama could love you more!!!
thank You, Lord for this precious little boy. thank You for his health and his sweet nature! i pray he will grow in Your love and that he will come to know Your Son as his Saviour. thank You soooo much for blessing us with him, and please teach us the best way to raise him.
in Jesus’ name, Amen.
today we had his first professional pics taken! he is sooo adorable! you can check them out under professional pics on the pics section. 😉
we also received new birth pics, from my doula, but i’m still editing them, so they won’t be up for a while. i’m trying to be decent with my breasts, because they show up quite a bit in them! lol!
also coming soon are video clips! yay!!!
yesterday baby boy measured 9lbs 14oz!!! woohooo!!! his eyes are turning from the gray-blue to a more blue-blue. hehe. his hair is still light blonde. he is so adorable and precious!!! he is holding his head up better and better (he’s been trying since the day we brought him home from the hospital!) and his eyes are focusing much better. he smiles at us all the time now, instead of just every now and then, and he laughs a lot too!
jerry and i have decided he does NOT have colic. he just has very painful gas at times. we’re hoping that the switch from one formula to another will help – so far it seems to be making a difference! i’m really praying he doesn’t go through that pain again. poor baby.
well that’s it for now!
God bless – big hugs!
