Hey blogworld! I'm back! For the time being anyway. I gave blogging a try in June, since I had a few things to talk about but quickly realized there just weren't enough hours in the day to keep up, so I gave it a rest. I've tried to do better about napping when T naps instead of feeling like I need to conquer the world while he's asleep and it definitely made life a little easier. I feel ready to get back into blogging now so I figured why not start fresh with a new month? And in total cliche form- can you believe it's already July!?!?
Speaking of that little boy he will be six weeks old this Thursday! Definitely another "I can't believe it" thing but it's true. His one month appointment went great last week- he's a little over 9 pounds now and it makes me so happy to see him growing and healthy and packing on the weight. He lost quite a bit of weight in the hospital/the first week home so those first couple weeks were stressful, making sure he was putting it back on- but my 37-weeker is catching up now. He got one shot and handled it like a champ- he cried for maybe 10-15 seconds and then was good to go. It was a pitiful 15 seconds though ;)
PS- Still figuring out how much I want to share about him on the blog. For now I think I'll watermark the few photos that I post of him. It's annoying to do, and probably annoying to look at - but it makes me feel a little bit better for the time being.
My sister and niece got to come in town last week and finally meet T! It was awesome seeing my sister with my son- such a sweet memory for sure. My niece was a bit unsure and didn't neessarily want to get too close to him, but she did sing him a song or two and enjoyed saying his name over and over again. She was also a bit confused why he couldn't "get down" yet- but she'll learn.
We've had SO many visitors in the past few weeks. I love that everyone wants to love on our baby, but this past holiday weekend Jared and I put a ban on visits and just enjoyed some time as as family. It was much needed and so relaxing. It wasn't your typical fourth of July weekend-- we stayed in (the rainy weather made that pretty easy to do) and played cards and worked on our puzzle, Jared made us a delicious pancake and bacon breakfast and we stared at our adorable son like newbie parents.
That's my little life update for now. This season of life is taking some getting used to but it's so worth the lack of sleep :) I hope everyone enjoyed a long, holiday weekend. I'll catch up with you and your blogs one of these days!!
