More Of The First 2 Months

I have lots of catching up to do on my blog.  We have had a wonderful first 2 months.  Here are some of the pictures.

I melted when he fell asleep like this.  Not only that, but these PJ’s of his are some of my very favorites! 


The Law School had Santa come, so we took RR to meet him. 



Then Santa came again to our ward Christmas party so I couldn’t resist another picture.


RR loves hanging out on his blanket with his toys.



And I love hanging out with him.


Ok so I am in total love with this outfit of his. 


Our friend Nicole got him this for Christmas and it is perfect!  We have taken him out on several walks in it.



A Visit From Terri

My very best friend Terri came to visit RR and I a few weeks ago.  We haven’t seen each other in almost 2 years and I was SO excited to have her come from Arizona for a few days.  Poor her, she came when it was 35 below here, a lot different from AZ weather!  We had so much fun, we hung out on my bed listening to Twilight, we went out to eat and shopping.  It was so amazing to have her come and stay.  I wish we lived closer.



8 Years Ago Yesterday

Yesterday was our 8 year anniversary.  It was spent with both of us very sick from a 24 hours stomach flu.  John got it the day before I did so he spent most of the day taking care of RR and I.  We are both feeling great today and praying like mad that RR doesn’t get it too. 

It has been an amazing 8 years.  It has gone by so fast.  We have been through a lot of emotional ups and downs in those 8 years.  I never thought we would be holding our own baby for this anniversary.  I actually had given up hope of ever holding a baby of our own.  We have been in school for 7 of those 8 years.  We both have our undergrad degrees, and John is now just 1 semester away from graduating Law School.  It is crazy to think that we are almost done living in this area. 

Isn’t it amazing how you can continue to fall more and more in love with someone?  I didn’t think I could love my husband more than I did when we got married, but I do.  The day we had RR I was in such awe at the love I felt for our baby, but even more in awe of the love I felt for my husband, it was like a renewal of my love for him. 

Thanks for an amazing 8 years my love!


One Month

(RR 1 month old)

How is it possible that a month has passed already?  I am desperate to slow down time, to make this last forever.  I love holding and snuggling my baby.  I wish he could stay tiny forever.  He is no longer my newborn, he is turning into my baby and while I love it, it crushes me at the same time.  We just had his 1 month appointment today and he is up to 9 lbs and 11 oz and is 22.5 inches long.  He is growing and changing every day and we fall more in love with each second.  I will recap his last 2 weeks tomorrow.
