Hey y’all! I wanted to write a little update post about my life and how everything is going since I had Gabe! This will mostly be pictures because, lets be honest, as a new mom I’ve obviously taken a million photos of my cute baby and I like showing him off. 🙂
I took this photo thinking “Oh how cute, he’s smiling, what a great picture!” And then I realized he’s flicking me off, but I think that just makes it even funnier and cuter. Hahaha this is one of my favorite pictures of Gabe!
A cute cozy photo of my sweet smiley boy in his little hoodie. How adorable is he!!
Gabe and I spent his first couple weeks in bed cuddled up. It was amazing. I had coffee and pumpkin bread everyday and we watched movies. Best way to spend my days ever!!
The best moments are when he gives me a random smile! I can’t wait till he starts smiling socially. I will spend my entire days trying to get him to smile because it makes me so happy to see it. 🙂
My little family. 🙂
Ryan is the best dad and husband I could ever ask for. He waited on me hand and foot while I was recovering in bed. He helps out with Gabe all the time even though he stays busy with work. He doesn’t complain about being woken up at night and despite being tired, he wakes up early and makes me breakfast before work. He picks on Gabe and teases and tickles him and its so cute. Gabe and him will be the best of pals and I just love it! He’s incredible. 🙂
I attempted to take some newborn photos….it lasted for about ten minutes and then he peed all over my cute wool braid and I threw it away and gave up. As a photographer you’d think I’d care more about this, but the photos I get with my phone spur-the-moment when Gabe does something cute make me just as happy as any “professional” pictures and they’re more real anyway.. 🙂
A rare photo of Gabe with his eyes open!! We still can’t tell if his eyes will be blue or brown! They’re still quite grey, but I think they are closer to blue then brown. I’ve got my fingers crossed that he gets my eyes!
As a new mama I wear cozy clothes EVERYDAY. Sweaters, pjs, warm socks, leggings, etc! I love this cozy fall sweater that I found on the Pink Blush website! I’m so excited that Pink Blush sells “regular” clothes as well as maternity so I can still shop there! Its become one of my favorite go-to websites to look for new clothes!
He is so kissable! This is how I spend the majority of my days…soaking up all the precious newborn snuggles! I know this phase will go by so quickly. People tell me that like ten times a day (Insert crying face here) and I want to make sure I completely treasure every little second.
