9 weeks

Romney and I were talking the other day and asked each other
"do you ever just look at him and have a full heart?"
we both answered-
We love Miles!
He seriously is such a honey.

His smile is adorable.
His cooing melts our hearts.

Things are calming down around here.
I am starting to function better on less sleep.
I am unloading that dishwasher in less time now
and now I can do laundry alone while Romney is at work.
shoooooot, I am blogging.
Things are just getting easier.
I am sad that the Newborn clothes are already packed up.
BUT oh my....
his chubby legs and arms are darling in 0-3 months clothes.
I can NOT get enough of him!

Life with a new born....

....we have had a whirl wind of changes and a whole lot of "firsts" at our house.
The first two weeks we were out of town living out of suit cases.
Which was chaotic in and of its self.

now that we are home...
look out we have a new born.

We have a new little friend who thinks our bed is way more comfy than his.
I literally came up stairs, walked in our room and thought "where on earth do I sleep"

I found a place to crash, and this is what Romney found.
He literally thought "where am I supposed to sleep..."

Eventually Miles makes it to his own bed where Magnus likes to greet him first thing in the morning.

and then follows him around,

Miles just stares at him.
Someday they are going to be great friends.
I can't wait.

We have experienced more pee piddling on our jeans and on the couch and lots of dirty diapers!

Case in point....poop on changing pad and rom is blocking pee with his hand this very moment!

We have made our way to the fire station for the guys to see Miles.
It is so fun to see big tough guys gush over something so small and cute.

Miles made his first debut to church.
We didn't stay long...just the first hour.
Even though he was off limits to all the "church germs" he was still a HUGE hit in Romneys arms.

We busted out the baby bjorn for our first hike.
Hiking with that thing for a first timer....awkward.
I need some major practice!
Miles had a little picnic while Magnus drank from the stream.

We no longer scream in the bath and dry off time.
It took a few sessions, but now he loves em'.
and for the record
his scream isn't a regular scream...

it sounds like "mmmmm-kay mmmmmm-kay mmmmmm-kay"
it's hysterical and sad all rolled into one.

Who knew life with a new born was so crazy?
Who knew that cleaning bottles was so time consuming?
Who knew that though new babies sleep most of the day we could be this tired?
Who knew that unloading the dishwasher could take over an hour?
Who knew that I could shower under 5 minutes?
Who knew that baby equipment took up so much space?
Who knew that I would change shirts every day because I would get spit up on?

I did.
And I love every thing about all of it.
He has captured my heart and I am in love!
