Wasn't I just posting a photo of my 38-weeks-pregnant self in all its glory ...?
(Okay, okay ... it wasn't that glorious.)
But regardless, I don't understand how it's possible that my little guy has already been on the outside for a whole month!?!
I'm sure there's no way I've stared for hours on end at his chubby cheeks and perfect little nose for 30 days straight.
I'm sure there's no way I've spent 30 nights getting up to feed the little milk monster every few hours.
Wait ... yep, that must be it.
Lack of sleep.
And I'm therefore delusional and losing track of time.
I've gotta figure out a way to put a stop to that .... because if the rest of the months go by as quickly as this first month? I might lose my mind.
And gallons of tears.
P.S. I feel terrible about not posting more. But taking care of a baby again has taken some getting used to! ... not at all in a bad way, but just in a total re-vamp of the typical "schedule" around here, kind of way!
And throw the fact that Christmas is LESS THAN A WEEK AWAY (help me) in there, and .... well, I just don't have a lot of extra time.
Okay, yes I do.
But during that time, I'm holding my beautiful baby boy. :-)
And typing one-handed makes writing a (reasonably-sized) blog post a little difficult!
*Note to self: work on one-handed typing.
Now let's get to the good stuff!
Hi, Max :-)
He is so precious! (If you haven't met him, you're just gonna have to take my work for it.:)~
And he LOVES to eat. Wow, can he put the milk away!
(Lucy was not a big eater at all. She still isn't!) I think her little brother might pass her up on the ol' scale before long at this rate.
I'm only having to get up with him once at night (for the last two weeks now), so I really can't complain about being too sleep deprived, either. I can handle getting up once at night, no problem! Heck, I think I'm getting more sleep now than during my last couple of weeks of pregnancy! At least now I can actually sleep when I lay down -- instead of tossing and turning, trying to get comfortable all night!
Anyway .... all-in-all, things are going GREAT, and we are all madly in love with him. :-)
So don't let me forget, okay...?
I know it's gonna break my heart to look back at each month's photos next November 17th when Max is turning a year old, but I think it will be a fun keepsake, so I'm gonna give it a try!
By the way .... if someone doesn't come clean out Max's closet on occasion for me, he's going to have that outfit (and all of the others) still hanging around his closet when he's eighteen.
He's already growing out of his newborn-sized clothes, and it's killin' me!
(Am I the only crazy mama out there who is this emotional about this kind of stuff!?!)
Anyway ... hopefully, I will be back here soon.
I still have some BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS, AMAZING photos to show you from Max's newborn photo shoot.
(I posted a link to the photographer's blog a couple of weeks ago, so you may have seen some of them already!:)
Here's a little sneak peek ... and the photo on our Christmas card:
