One Month Old!

We don't see this face very often luckily, but even the fuss face is adorable don't you think.
Bath time is pleasant once we've convinced the boy he's warm.
Don't you just want to eat those cheeks!
Sawyer loves his big sister Chloe. She's so good at holding him and is already developing endearing nicknames for him. Right now it's "baby soyoh", said with a cute little slang. Don't be mistaken, she knows how to pronounce "Sawyer" with complete accuracy, so this really is her sweet nickname for him.
Big sister Emma is such a great helper! She hands me diapers and wipes, inserts the pacifier when needed, and Sawyer has even fallen asleep on her. This little boy sure is lucky, although I'm sure he won't see it that way for quite some time;).
Notice the mouse? Yes, I'm sorry son, but I'm sure it's not the last act of play you will be the victim of. This is nothing compared to the ballet outfits your sisters will dress you in some day.
The G.Q. pose. Yes, I know I'm handsome.
Such sweetness!

Sweet dreams
Can it really be that one month has passed since our precious little man entered this world? It hardly seems possible, but at the same time, it seems as though he's always been a part of our family. As we get to know and love Sawyer more and more each day, we can hardly remember what life was like without him. He's just plain edible! He's getting more and more aware of his surroundings these days, it's so much fun to watch him try to focus on our faces. His lips purse in deep concentration as his eyes open wide to take us in. I love to play with his soft, newborn feet while he's nursing or cup his tiny head in my hand. I am freezing these moments, these sensations in my heart forever. With my first baby, I rushed along the milestone chart, always anxious for the next stage. But now, with what will more than likely be my last baby, I would give anything to make time stand still. I am drinking in newborn, inhaling this time, letting it swirl in my mouth so as not to miss a single flavor! Sawyer my boy, you bring my heart such joy each day!

aaww 1 month already! That newborn stage is so fleeting, I can't believe Lucas is 7 months! I recognize those overalls on Sawyer! :) I just sent you a pic of Lucas wearing them. Sawyer is just adorable with all those facial expressions!

precious! thank for sharing, it is good to hear from you! And I know what you mean, it is so sad that because we know no better, we rush that first one!

on another note, I just searched your archives trying to find your post about homeschooling, but couldn't find it. I know you have a million other things to do, but what did you decide about homeschooling? as far as curriculum goes. or have you decided?

Mindy said...

Hey, it was good to hear from you! I would love to hear how you guys came to your decision, when and if you have time to write about it;)
