Best 2 weeks of my life

These last 2 weeks have been so wonderful. We are beyond blessed to have a healthy baby boy, and each other. It was so nice to have Rob home on paternity. I recommend this for all new parents — it’s truly magical. It’s just been us three, every day, hanging out. All we do is stare at him and admire every little inch of his body. I then usually start crying. I even cry at the thought of him growing up, or being any older than he is right now.  We totally created this little man! These postpartum hormones are insane. I want to blame it on the sleep deprivation but I’m pretty sure it’s because I’m so incredibly in love {might also be all the prolactin {or oxytocin} in my system from breastfeeding?}. Whatever it is, I want more of it. I’m soaking up every minute I can get with Jace and Rob. It’s really been the best 2 weeks of my life. Not only did I get to spend every day with my husband {my favorite person!}, but we got to enjoy our son together, without the stress of work or other obligations. Parenthood is scary as hell but exhilarating at the same time. Although I feel like life revolves around my boobs right now, I’m still enjoying my time with little boy and feel almost fully recovered. Thank you, God, for giving us this time together and for our beautiful boy.

Here’s what we’ve been up to these first 2 weeks with our SON {!!!}.
{conquering the swaddle — I’d say we’re almost pros. I do want to try the miracle blanket version next}
{a lot of sleeping — and staring — and pictures}
{car rides to Dr. appointments and around town}
{morning stroller walks with Jace down to Pixie Deli for some sunshine and breakfast}
{moments where we just smile at each other.  I know, we’re cheesy.}
{Valentine’s Day breakfast — Rob even made the eggs heart-shaped!}
{Jace’s first photo shoot with Renee Fox Photography — poor Daddy got peed on}

We’ve also been watching The Office non-stop. It’s one of those shows for us that we could watch over and over again, and it never get old. We still laugh every time. And strangely enough, my appetite has tripled since coming home from the hospital. I feel like I want to eat as often as little boy. Gotta feed the boobs I say! Starting this week, we’ll have visitors for the next 3 weeks, back to back. Rob returned to work, so I’m looking forward to having some extra hands around the house again and for someone to visit with! I’m dying to socialize, haha. My sister arrives first and I have a lot planned for us — can’t wait! Have a great week friends!

    He is just precious and so glad you’re doing so well! When Emmy was two weeks old, I was pretty sure I was dying of exhaustion, so you’re amazing already, mama! Congratulations!
