Life Lately (with a Newborn)

by Courtney on July 31, 2013

Well, as expected, I’ve been a bit preoccupied the past couple of days! Being a new mom is a busy, busy job, absolutely my top priority, and is just incredible.

I cannot even begin to express the joy and happiness that our new little Lucas brings us.

IMG_0586

The day after Lucas was born.

So what has life been like lately? Well, there’s a whole lot of adjusting and learning, plenty of laughs, plenty of tears (hello, hormones), plenty of second guessing, and PLENTY of sitting and just staring at this little face.

IMG_0610

There’s diaper and onesie changes galore, leaky boobs (hey, it’s the truth…and it’s umm, interesting!, meals eaten mindlessly and so many generous, wonderful visitors.

Cody is still not quite sure what to think of the little guy and it cracks us up.

As the days have gone on, he seems to make is way just a little bit closer each day. At first, anytime Lucas so much as moved a finger, Cody would jump back with his tail huge, getting all skittish. Now, he’s starting to get pretty curious about whatever this new “thing” is in his territory.

I love it.

So yes, things around here are busy, a little hectic and are nothing short of absolutely wonderful. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to express just how amazing it feels to be a mom, and honestly, most of the time it still doesn’t even seem real.

But then I just get one look at this face and I realize, it’s definitely real.

And we are just so, so blessed. Smile

Congrats, you are going to make an amazing mom!

Pets are so funny getting used to babies. When my sister had her son a few months ago her dog went through a really weird phase getting used to him. Now he is the most protective little dog ever! If my nephew cries, her dog (a Boston Terrier) will run over and start licking his hand or face to try and help. It’s super cute!

This just made me cry a little bit! My little one is 6 months old and I can still clearly remember those first couple of days/weeks while you’re getting used to your new life. It’s an amazing amazing time, and it goes by SO FAST, so savor every moment with Baby Lucas!!!!
