Max = 1 Month!

How is that possible..?
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 :-)
I love this little guy!!!
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.  :-)

The laundry basket photo ....

I plan to take this same photo every month.
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:

Another P.S. .... If you're accustomed to getting a Christmas card from us, and you haven't, it's because I ran out!  More have been ordered, so be patient with me .... hopefully you'll get one by New Year's! :)~


  1. Absolutely unbelievable, Cuz! Can't believe it has been a month already. Great post!

  2. He's so sweet and that Christmas card photo is the sweetest ever. Wishing you and your beautiful family and wonderful holiday season together. Merry Christmas!

  3. Its time to cross off "have another baby" from your 35 by 35 list! =) Love you. And Max. And Scott and Lucy.

  4. That photo of Lucy and Max is beyond precious! They are both beautiful!!!

  5. Max is one month?! Seems crazy! He's so handsome! Growing like a weed! It is so nice to hear that Max is happy and healthy! God is good! <3

  6. Wow. The picture of Lucy and max is gorgeous!! the way, Lucy is super brave to hold max like that without a diaper!!! Hahah! Love to you and your littles! Time is flying my friend!!

  7. Aww he is such a sweetie and that pic of Lucy with her baby brother??
    You amaze me!
    Putting together a post with a newborn and a toddler!
    I know it probably took you a week to do but impressed am I!
    ( I know that was a grammar no no..just seeing if you would catch it;)
    So glad to see you blogging again but if I don't see you for a month, I totally get it.
    Big hugs and have a great Christmas as a mom of 2!!!!!

  8. oh my goodness, he's getting big already! You're making ME sad thinking about this little one in my belly and thinking about how quickly MINE will grow! :( Can't they just stay newborn size a LITTLE longer? Seems unfair really. One thing I'm looking forward too (if this one is a boy) is having it wear the same sweet clothes that Zeek wore when he was a newborn. :)

  9. Wow, one month already!! Yes, they do grow up fast! Max is adorable! And yes, getting used to two is a HUGE least it was for me! At least Lucy is big enough to help a lot!! Merry Christmas friend. Love you lots!

  10. He is so precious! I can't believe that Max is one month old...time flies. I am the same way about holding onto their clothes, the good thing now though the girls are using the newborn clothes for their babies. So I still get to have them around to remind myself they were that size not long ago. Have a Merry Christmas with your beautiful family.
