One Month Later...

I can't believe its already been a month since Brody was born! We've had an exciting month so far. I feel like I've updated quite a bit so there's really not much new to report. He weighs about 7.5 lbs but we haven't measured him to see how long he is now. Here are just a few pictures from the last week or so.

Our Sweet Baby Boy

At 3 weeks old, Brody is already developing a cute little personality and has his "favorite" things. Here are just a few of them.

He loves his Daddy!

He loves baths!

And being wrapped in the towel afterwards! He could stay like this for hours!

He loves his bouncy seat. He's already reaching for the toys to make the lights and music start!

He loves sucking on his fingers. It varies between his thumb and index finger.

He loves the Aggies! This picture was taken when he was 1 day old..and he did Gig'Em all on his own!
There are so many other things that he does that are so adorable. We are having so much fun watching him change and grow every single day. I want him to stay my sweet baby forever..but at the same time I can't wait for him to be able to interact with us even more.

My Baby's Growing Up...

This may seem silly to all of you other mothers out there..and you may be shocked that this is a first time occurance in our house...don't judge me.

We always nap together...I'm just as tired as he is. Or he naps in his bouncy seat in the living room. I'm never more than a few feet away from him. I just want to be snuggling with him all day.

But today, we reached a milestone. But not on was all by accident. I was changing his diaper, and out of nowhere...he pooped all over my hand. It was quite a mess. After wiping my hand off with a baby wipe, I had to put him somewhere so I could clean up the mess. I layed him in his crib. After cleaning the mess and scrubbing my hands in the bathroom, I went to get him...and this is what I saw.

As much as I wanted to scoop him up, I couldn't bring myself to do it. He looked so comfortable and like he belonged there. Does this mean he WANTS to sleep in his crib during the day? I know that I would be so much more productive during the day if I would give in and let him. But I just hate when he's out of my sight. I'm still so protective of him. I know there's a time I'll be begging for him to take a nap so I can get things done. But not yet..I'm not ready yet.

Sorry the camera gets shaky...I was laughing at him. It was way too cute!

Our First 2 Weeks

Our first 2 weeks as parents have been awesome. We've seen a beautiful baby boy come into this world, be perfectly healthy, and invade our home and hearts with his sweet yawns, whimpers, and little smirks. Yes, we've had sleepless nights and stinky diapers, but we wouldn't change a thing. Little Brody already has such a sweet personality and LOVES to cuddle. He's probably already a little spoiled...but I've heard you can't spoil a baby in the first couple of months. Is that true?

He's had so many visitors, phone calls, and emails to check in on him. So many people just love him to pieces. He had his 2 week appt this past Friday and he's doing great. He gained 7 ounces and grew 3/4 inch since birth. His jaundice is pretty much gone and he's eating like a champ.

I don't even know how many pictures have already been taken of him...seems like millions. And he's a trooper about it...he's going to be a little ham when he gets a little older.

Here are some more pictures...enjoy.
