He was a week old yesterday. the first week of his life is already over.....and yes, i'm a bit sad. i was telling mark the other day that i can totally see how mother's become so attached to their "baby".... their last born child. i already find myself wanting to hold onto this first week and never let go. when we had hudson we had not made a decision as to whether or not we would have more children or not. so i never got that nostalgic over anything. i was just trying to survive w/ a newborn and a 13 month old. there wasn't time to stop and smell the roses...or the poop. there wasn't even time to shower or eat. my days were a whirlwind and looking back on them now it's all very foggy. at any rate, there wasn't time to sit and ponder the miracle of life during that time for me. it wasn't until much later that i got to relive hudson's babyhood thru my photos and scrapbooking. but with this little guy...well, i want to soak it all in and it's rather emotional knowing he is indeed our last little miracle. so already i'm a bit sad to say good bye to his first week of life. we've had a great week. even with 3 trips to the pediatrican regarding his jaundice...which is clearing up beautifully. we left the hospital on monday. on tuesday we ventured out to a tball game for the kids. on wednesday we went to walmart for some shopping, friday we went for a visit to school / church (where he graciously pooped on our youth pastor) and then yesterday another tball game! whoa! what a week! we've only had one night that was a little hard but otherwise he's doing pretty well with his sleeping. i think for me i feel like i'm getting MORE sleep than at the end of my pregnancy when i was so uncomfortable and had to pee every hour.
so the first week has been an eventful one.....and already he seems to have changed...right before my eyes. i want to breathe him in everyday and never forget how he is right now. my baby. my last one. my last little miracle. here are some of my favorite pictures from this week.
this was after his first bath on the first night home.
