The whole time I was pregnant, I obviously knew there was a chance we would have a boy. For some reason, I just assumed we would have a girl though. I mean, everyone we knew had girls. My mom and Doug were convinced from day 1 though that our little nugget was a boy.
Then Elliot was born. And I became a boy mom.
Now, as of right now, he's just a baby. Not much is different. You know...except the super skill of peeing all over the me, the wall, himself, etc... every time I take his diaper off. Without fail.
But these days, we're just figuring out life with a tiny person. A tiny person who has taken over our lives. In the best way possible. We're figuring out what his different cries mean, how to make him happy and what makes him mad (when Doug or I talk to him and when he's hungry- which is literally all the time), how to survive life with him...and how to keep him alive, and of course the tricks to prevent him from peeing all over everything.
My days seem like a blur of feeding him (seriously...all the time), staring at his adorable little face, trying to keep our house in at least some sort of order, remembering to eat, and trying to get us out of the house occasionally.
And I've watched my husband become an incredible father. Somehow, I've grown to love him even more than I did as I watch him pick up our little man and talk to him and snuggle with him.
This post was obviously more about showing off our adorable new born pictures. All of our newborn pics were taken by Katherine Smith Studio. I kind of lucked into finding her- I work with her sister and had mentioned something when I was looking for a photographer and her sister told me about her. I love all them so much and I'm so glad we'l have pictures like this of our little man when he was just a week old! As I sit her with a 7 week old, I find it hard to remember my little chunky man being that small!
*side note* I wrote this post like two weeks ago...and forgot to post it. And I'm just now logging on for the first time to actually do it! Oops.
