Friends! I am happy and relieved to tell you that our little baber is finally here! After going back and forth about what to name him for MONTHS, we finally decided on Miles William Graham. (We heard the name Miles in a movie a few months ago and loved it, and William is for my dad and grandpa and two great great grandpas, and my brother too! There's a great family heritage to that name.)
Miles looks like the sweetest little mumpy old man! And he's got a wild mohawk that I am obsessed with. Isn't it awesome how babies look so rough and beat up from delivery, all puffy, with no chin, and people still gush, "Oh he's gorgeous!" :) I'm like, "Well, that's a bit of a stretch, but thanks!" :)
|My sweet little mohawk dude!|
It's so good to have him here safely. :) And, my recovery has been amazing, cause I didn't rip or tear or have an episiotomy like I did with Hayden. So, no stitches and sitting on ice packs, just a little soreness. :)
Friends, I have several amazing guest posts coming that I am super excited to share with you, but it may take me a little time. Right now I am trying to figure out the new rhythm to life. Cause when I have any time where both the boys are asleep, I just want to conk out too....oy, sleep deprivation. And, this may sound really selfish, but I've been wondering, when can I fit MY stuff in when I have a toddler who misses/needs more of my time, and an infant who is pretty chill so far, but a challenge to feed? (Oh nursing, why can't I seem to succeed with you?) I find so much joy in blogging and doing creative things, but I have to remind myself that my family and I will adapt and find our new norm, and I will get to do those things again, it will just take a little time to figure out. Until then, please be patient with me especially if the posts are slow to trickle in, cause I love all of you and this happy little blog ...I won't give up on you so don't give up on me, ok?
Here are some extremely fancy, high-quality (ha) phone pics from the entrance of baby Miles...enjoy! Love to you all!
|A few days before Miles was born...Hayden is practicing holding a baby gently! Ha, do you like the swaddled Kermit?|
|Day before baby came! Last belly shot!|
|He's here!! 6 pounds 7 ounces, 20 inches.|
|Proud dad! Patrick was amazing through it all...I love him.|
|Oh, my sweet boys!!!|
|Haha, we tried to see if he'd fit these adorable preemie pjs...he's skinny enough, but he can't straighten out his legs! Ha!|
PS. For those mommas who have more than one kiddio, I'd love to hear how you helped your older child get used and like having a new baby. Hayden loves baby Miles, but he's struggling with the changes in his life and routine.
