one month with colsen

Monday, July 28, 2014

where has the time gone?! we've loved spending this first month with colsen. he is such a sweet boy and kevin and i love him to pieces! here's some things we've learned about colsen this first month:

+ he loves to wave his hands around and put his right hand in a fist right next to his face
+ sleeps best on his side
+ chocolate doesn't sit well with his tummy...sad realization for me! chocolate is one of my main food groups ;)
+ isn't a big fan of tummy time and kicks his legs but when i prop him on his stomach on the boppy pillow he likes to lean to the left and chill there
+ he's great at holding his head up!
+ when he's hungry, he snorts (mama's little piggy!)
+ loves snuggles with mom and dad
+ first real smile was to dad at exactly one month when we were in the hotel in nashville
+ first roadtrip was to Nashville, TN last week
+ loves listening to music and quiets down when he hears it

so many people have asked me if being a mom is harder than i thought and my answer is nope! it's much easier than i thought and i'm surprised how well i've adjusted from being a wife to a mother as well. the other day kevin said "i love our life" and i agree - we are so happy with life right now and where we're at. life isn't perfect but it's good :) i definitely go some days without showering and sometimes i just want to cry because i'm so tired at night and i wish kevin could magically be able to breastfeed too (haha!) but in return i get to kiss chubby baby cheeks all day and have all the snuggles i want and there's nothing better than that!

week 1 // just a few days old in the hospital!

week 2 // at exactly 2 weeks old! that morning i snapped some photos of him on our bed when the lighting was coming through the window and he was in a good mood. :)

i love the idea of the 52 project and thought that i'd do something similar with colsen! i'll be starting a new posting series on this blog of taking a photo of colsen once a week, every week for the first year of his life. (my idea came from eat sleep cuddle blog!) this will help me out in my goal of taking lots of photos as he grows and it will be fun to then put in his book that i'll be making!

 the photo on the right cracks me up! i didn't realize i captured that image until i was looking through them. :)

on sunday we took some pics of us with our colsen. we switched off taking the photos (i pretty much directed kevin exactly how i wanted it and he did a great job!) i sure love my boys and feel like the luckiest girl around! now we just need to get a picture of all three of us together...

happy fourth!
