week 1

Today is my first day alone with my two little boys. So good! It helps that Connor is in that lovely newborn stage where the sleep 20 out of 24 hours in the day!! Also Micah has preschool for two more weeks so that will give me some breathing time and a chance to bond with my new little man alone.

Last week was pretty good. Micah DID NOT have a good beginning of the week, but it actually wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be so that is good. He was VERY clingy to me, pretty whiny and WOULD NOT go to sleep at night. 3 nights in a row he cried and cried and cried and cried begging for one of us to lay down with him. I know that seems like a pretty easy thing to do but Zach and I did not want to start a habit of it so we ended up just letting him cry. SO HARD! I am not a cry it out kinda girl. I am a hold, cuddle, rock, kinda girl but I stayed strong (if strong means crying my own eyes out and shutting myself in a room with my fan so I can't hear him!) However by Thursday he was going to sleep with out crying and has done really well every night since then. YAY!

Connor had his first doctor's appointment and has already made it back to birthweight. Dr. Jattan said everything else looked good so that was a big relief.

My mother was here from Sunday to Sunday which means all my laundry is done, ironing is done and belly is full! This past weekend my dad and younger brother came up also and with Zach's help worked like dogs to clean up our front and back yard. Hopefully this will entice a buyer but for now we are enjoying the view they've created.

Zach took AWESOME pictures of Connor while he was napping but isn't done editing them yet so I'll post those soon. For now here are some less awesome shots I took of our first week home :)


  1. Raylee did the same type of thing with her sleeping. She would wake up really early in the morning and wouldn't go down easy for naps. It DOES get better! I guess that is there way of trying to get some extra attention since there is a new little person in the house. But hang in there...I promise it gets better!

  2. Love the pictures! Can't wait to see the ones Zach took.

  3. Your babies always come out looking so tan! They look like little surfer boys! So cute!
