Hello friends! It has been quite awhile since I’ve posted. That’s because I have been busy taking care of a tiny newborn who has grown into a chunky, happy two month old! I can hardly believe it’s been two months since my week overdue baby boy arrived on a Friday night. My husband and I could hardly believe it when the doctor put a squirming grunting, 7 lb, 3 oz baby boy on my chest. I immediately took in his dark hair and eyes, and the tiny little birthmarks on his eyes that the doctor called angel kisses. The night we became parents changed everything- but in the most wonderful way.
I’m feeling very thankful lately.
Thankful for a healthy, handsome baby boy, whom my dad nicknamed Indy (as in Indiana Jones).I think that’s what I’ll call him on this blog.
I am thankful for family who helped us out before and after Indy’s birth, and everyone who sent well wishes and gifts. I am thankful for friends who brought us meals for two weeks so that my husband and I could lay around with our baby and binge watch shows together, and just stare at our tiny boy. We’ll remember those first few weeks forever. I know that people call a “Baby-moon” a vacation you take before baby’s arrival, but we truly feel that we had one the week after our son was born.
I’m thankful for first smiles and bright eyes, and fur babies who have been nothing but sweet and gentle toward the new tiny human in our home.
I’m thankful whenever I see my husband cuddling our son and for all of the feedings and diaper changes he does.
I’m thankful that Indy now usually wakes up only once a night and for the cold brew coffee (more on that soon) that gets me through sleepy afternoons.
I am thankful for at home date nights with a glass of wine, and our tiny boy nestled in his bassinet nearby.
I’ll try to get better at this blogging thing. I’m thankful to Indy’s wonderful Aunt Ilana for holding down the fort and writing so many awesome posts! I’m hoping to share more as I begin to discover the new normal for my life now that I am a mom. I’ve slowly begun cooking more, and Indy finally fits into his cloth diapers- so that has been an interesting transition!
Thanks for reading. I’ll leave you with a photo of this caprese salad that we enjoyed last night. We just substituted peaches for tomatoes, and kept everything else the same. So, so good.
Talk to you soon:)
