New love

I can't even believe that I am saying this, but my precious little man will be 8 weeks old on Thursday!

He is perfect in so many ways! Since I am working on a little montage about him for later this week, I won't spoil it, but I will share 5 golden words every mommy wishes to speak....

He is a good sleeper!

Thank you, Jesus!

Almost from the first week, he slept well at night even while sleeping during the day. I couldn't believe it. These days, he typically goes to bed between 9 and 10 PM, waking once some time between 3 and 5 AM. And even then, he simply eats and dozes back into la-la land. We have had a few off nights, but I can count them on one hand.

This was his first week home.

You can already see here how long he started out! He only continues to get longer!

Can you ever get enough pictures of a sleeping baby?!!

This was taken one day around week 4 when I caught him finding his thumb. I wish he would find it more, but he loves his pacifier.

In fact, these were his exact words regarding the matter.

(OK, sorry, but I totally cracked up when I caught this picture. I thought it was too funny and hope not to offend!)

So precious. I am jealous about the sleeping. Mine is pretty good but not that good.

He is darling! Nope, can't ever have enough sleeping baby pictures! :)

God bless good sleepin' babies!

You know, one day he's going to be SO proud of that last shot. He'll probably want you to put it in his senior yearbook.

Haha!!! I think it's just a right of passage to have the "baby giving the middle finger but not really" picture taken! Precious!
