Hello 7 hours!

Phew… It’s been a whirlwind around here lately. Moving, newborn, owning a house, Ken’s new job. And ken just got a new calling too. (Something we joked about trying to do since we have so many new big things going on.) 

I’m hoping to get back into a rythym of posting on here regularly. (One can hope.)

Anyway, point of post. 

Reed went 8 hours between feeding a last night aka sleep for me!!! Glorious glorious sleep! It felt great. (Even though I did wake up once or twice in the night because my body is so used to waking up.)

So here are some cute pictures of the little bug:




I never understood people’s obsession with wanting to pinch cheeks, but I get it now. I mean, look a his cheeks! I could kiss them all day. 

Love this little fella.


One Month


And there you have it. My baby is a month old. 

  • Big brother loves to call him “Reedy”
  • Reed loves to be swaddled
  • Because of his reflux, I was told to try to keep him upright for 30 minutes after he has eaten. I always just stick him in my Moby wrap carrier (lifesaver! I love this contraption!) so that he is completely upright. Little stinka will often wake up immediately when I transfer him to his bassinet from the Moby. I think the sudden quietness from lack of my heartbeat and whatnot startles him awake. It also doesn’t help that Kenny will sometimes get in his face and scream “wake! wake!”
  • He is the king of burps. He will burp around 10 times during/after eating. 
  • He developed a small little brown birth mark under his left eye. It’s adorable

We are so happy little mister is here and part of our family! It makes me so happy to see how well he is received by Kenny. I hope the two of them grow up friends and look out for one another.
