one month already??!!

how does that happen? he's already over a month old. i think i saw the hint of a smile a couple of times. we've had some successful outings--two dinners out in a row and a trip to target WITHOUT screaming. good news, i say. no professional photos this time--but i took a few on monday. here's one i really like:

in other news, jeremy told me today to not die. i will take that as a compliment, as in i'm doing a good job taking care of the little muppet and there would be no milk otherwise. at this very moment, though, he's out with the bro-in-law and took that baby with him. so i'm going to get off the computer and do something i want to do! yay!

have we really been home a week??

it doesn't seem like it, but i guess when you consider all the adventures(?) we've had over the past few days, it starts to seem like a week has passed!

this is the face he makes most of the time. i tell him to stop, or he'll get wrinkles, but he's not doing so good in the minding his mother department yet. he looks alternately puzzled or angry or deep in thought...

the baby bjorn is awesome, but maybe not the best for eating spaghetti!
these are the souvenirs from my trip to the fire station: an ice pack, a chocolate basketball (for being such a good SPORT!) and my wedding ring--in pieces. bent pieces. i got all high and mighty sunday morning. we were planning on going to church. took a shower, put on cute clothes, put on makeup...felt i looked pretty good for having a baby only 8 days ago...so i put on the wedding rings...bad idea. finger swelled up like you would not believe. purple...bad...we were able to get the engagement ring off with windex and dental floss (i kid you not, my husband is McGyver) but the wedding ring was tougher and i started to panic when i saw how PURPLE my finger was getting. went to the fire station, got it cut off. sigh. that's what i get for PRIDE. we never made it to church...and it's a shame because the baby was sooooo good--he would have been great had we gone. sigh. maybe next sunday. sans rings.
and this is just a good "poop on my shirt" picture because poop spilling out of a diaper onto the floor is funny no matter how you look at it. thanks, aunt jamie, for the picture!
ahhhh...domestic bliss.

welcome samuel!

It's a boy! We're so excited that little Samuel got here safe and sound (via an unplanned c-section...boo) and we're pretty sure our friends and family are, too. We've had amazing support from them and lots of help around the house, and lots of great food!

He's now a week old and we are all doing much better now that the "milk truck" showed up. So far, it's just eat.poop.sleep.lather.rinse.repeat.

Stay tuned for new updates! Mom needs a nap!
