Holy Smokes....

So it’s been seriously forever since I've blogged. Hayden has kept me very busy. I knew I would be tired and sore from my c section but I had no idea just how exhausting it would all be. I nurse and eat and sleep when Hayden sleeps, so all that doesn't leave much time for anything else. But I think my body is getting use to being up at 2 and 4 and 6 in the morning and I can function more in the evening. You moms out there with a toddler running around with a new baby, or if you have 2 new babies are AMAZING!!! I don't know what I would do. You mommies are for sure super heroes...

Hayden is doing great. He had his 2 week check up about a week ago and was 9 lbs 4 oz and grew a half an inch! I think most of his weight is up in his cute, chubby little cheeks. Cory and I love him so much. It’s amazing to me how fast he is growing and changing. He doesn't have that little newborn look anymore. He is already so big.

Nursing is getting easier and better every day. I hope I will be able to keep up with him, he eats so so much! I have learned lots already too. Chocolate and nursing with his little tummy is a big no no. And milk products aren't super awesome on his belly either. I never really wanted chocolate until after I couldn't have it anymore...

I want to try and be better about blogging about everything. Because one it keeps me sane and is kinda my social outlet while I’m stuck at home for the next little while and two blogging is kinda like mini journaling for me.

Here are a few pictures; they are from my phone so I’ll have to get up the ones from my camera up soon.

These are a few pictures from the hospital:






My 17 yr old brother Travis got him this Jordan beanie for Christmad, it comes with matching little socks and a onesie with a gold chain on it. It's pretty funny. As soon as he fits in it I'll get pictures up.










He loves being in his swing.

Oh my gosh he's SO SO SO cute!! I want a chubby cheeked little boy so bad! I honestly don't really remember those first few months, but reading your post made me remember how big of an adjustment it is! I'm sure you're doing great. I definitely think we all have a built-in system, and it doesn't take long to get things down like a wonder mommy. Enjoy all your time with him, it really goes by fast!
