Family of Three

I've squeezed a lot into my 27 years of life.
I've been a lot of places, seen a lot of things, and been blessed with so many opportunities.
But nothing compares to the joy I've experienced over the past two weeks.
Being a mother tops everything.

We are completely smitten by our little mister.
We love his big blue eyes, pouty lips, serious resting face, and blondie hair.
He's a cute little wiggle worm (just like he was in the womb), he loves playing with his hands, hates being swaddled, loves being burped, and sleeps like a champ through the night already.

He looks like his mom, but has the calm, contented, easy-going temperament of his dad.
He is a wise old soul, and has brought an incredible spirit to our home.
His grandparents & aunts and uncles can't get enough of him.  
He is absolutely perfect.

Mike has had the past two weeks off work, and we've been soaking up every single moment together as a little family of three.

He is SUCH a doll! Seriously. One of THE cutest babies i've seen. Thanks so much for letting us come. Sorry my kids were crazy, but Parley has not stopped talking about his friend Mike and how much fun we had at Andrea's house. You guys made a great impression on him. :)

And I didn't tell you today, but you are a fabulous Mom! Congrats again.

So sweet! Loving these pics! He does look like his mama. You are a mom!! Amazing! Really happy for you guys.

1. You look wonderful!!!! Wow, I can't believe you just had a baby.

2. Your mom looks like his mom in that one picture. She seriously looks so young she could also be his mother - not a grandmother!

3. Don't you think that you enjoy being a mom so much because of the 27 years of other stuff you did?! I'm just saying... maybe if you got hitched at 19 and pregnant at 20 you might feel differently when you hold that baby in your arms.

I missed him while I was gone for 5 days. That's way to long to go without seeing him.
