a couple things:
first: i realized i left out perhaps some of the most important details of baby g's birth! he came into this world on new years eve (12/31/11) at 12:35am weighing 8lbs, 0 oz and was 21 inches long. he had a full head of brown hair and long pretty eyelashes (seriously... why is it the dudes always get the fantastic eyelashes? LOL).
second: we are 9 days in and he's doing fantastic. he nurses like a champ which is awesome... nora and i really struggled in the beginning. i won't lie - he does have his days and nights backwards which is very frustrating at about 4:00 am when i'm up feeding him for the fourth time that night and he is wide awake and wants to play. :) alas. it won't be like this for long and there are some nights when i just don't even mind it because the nights are the times when i can really just focus in on him and me without having to worry about whether or not nora wants to play with us too or kevin is hungry. :) hehe.
all in all - i'm love love LOVING life as a mommy and a wife.
having baby g in his newborn state has been awesome for my photography hobby too. i am finding it a little bit tough to find the time (and energy) to set up the shots i really want - but the practice has been fun. :) he is adorable and i'm loving being able to bottle him up in my pictures. here is one:
gah! isn't he just adorable? don't you just want to nibble him up? well too bad - you can't because he's mine. :) hehehe.
today was kev's first day back on the j-o-b and i was pretty nervous to be with nora and grant by myself. it's been so nice to have kev to occupy nora while i tend to grant this last week. it's gone much better than i thought it would - we even took a walk this afternoon. :) nora adores grant - it's me that her frustration lies with. and thats ok. :) better me than him.
today i give the glory and the gratitude to God for my beautiful kids. may God bless them with long, healthy, happy lives. :)
