Sweet Judson Ray, you have been in our lives for 2 weeks!
It's so easy to forget what I did all day, every day before you.
I think I am OK with forgetting some, as I like this way of life very much.
You've had a busier week than last... I've been eager to get out and about.
we took some newborn pics of you and some family photos
My good friend Erin took them and did an awesome job and I am so eager to see them all
p.s. this is not one of hers... obvi
you hung out with your aunt Jamie, uncle Jake and cousin Beau and loved every bit of cuddling
you sweet 17-year old cousin John Luke baked us muffins and brought them over one morning
then we had a long talk about how you need to be just like him when you're 17
we went to visit your dad at his office for the first time
you were quite the hit
you also introduced his office to some baby poop
we ran quite a few errands and you were a champ
your cousin Sadie and her bff Anna Catherine came over for a bit and loved on you.
they're going to be your babysitters...if we can fit into their busy high school schedules
your Hunny and Pa started on their house!!!
concrete means business people
each night this week sweet friends from church brought us a meal.
these are women who have busy families and small kids of their own.
yet they carved time out to cook for us and bring it to our house.
you, my son, are a very loved and very blessed little guy
i also enjoyed getting to see my friends and chit-chat
(this chicken pot pie was made by Jil and ooooooh so good)
your Grammy came to visit and stayed the whole week!
and we loved it.
i got to take lots of naps and not worry about cleaning or anything.
she's the best.
and no one cried when she left (or everyone)
your dad is gone for a week on a work trip in Kansas
no one cried when he left either (and by no one, i mean i did)
we miss him something awful, but luckily we have lots of help while he's gone
he's getting at least one picture an hour of you so that he doesn't forget what you look like
you're rocking the nap nanny
and the faux-hawk
we almost finished your room
I'm just not sure when you'll ever sleep in there
i might have a problem kicking you out of my room
a more complete post about the new rooms to come
At week 2 you are still the sweetest baby
you are very easy to soothe and i hope and pray that is your personality!!!!
you are becoming a bit more partial to your mommy
you whimper like a puppy dog when you're going to sleep
you are a lot more alert during the day
you're starting to learn that night time is for sleeping (still working on that one)
you're a little cuddler
you wear newborn clothes, but are outgrowing 0-3 month socks with your big ole feet
oh yeah! you received your social security card and your birth certificate! you're a real person!
we love and adore every second with you Judson Ray
