One Month!!

Oh my goodness!! Where do I even begin?! I cannot believe that one month has already passed since my little Owen was born. It has truly been a whirlwind of events . . . and somewhat of a blur too! I forgot that one little person could reak so much havoc in a mother's life! Owen is a wonderful baby. However, he still wants to eat every 2 1/2 hours! His life revolves around eating, pooping, and peeing right now. In fact, the other night, around 3 in the morning, Owen christened my bed frame, mattress, and nightstand when I was changing his diaper. Sadly, I was too exhausted to change the sheets (or wake Sterling up). As I lay there falling back to sleep in baby urine . . . with fresh vomit on my pj's, I thought, "this is truly motherhood"!!! Sad - yes. But, I would not change it for the world! Yeah, my standards have dropped a little, but I am happy. LOL!

My parents just left today. I had the luxury of having my mother here for 4 weeks!! It was wonderful. Unfortunately, it was postponing the inevitable. I have been panicking a little over having 3 kids!! I realize that many women have 3 + children . . . so, if they can do it, surely I can . . . right?! LOL!

My boys have been adjusting to Owen in their own unique ways. Asher is so in love with Owen. He surprised us all with his eagerness to hold the baby. Asher is very tender with Owen - which we love to see.



Myles, on the other hand, is still in denial. He has only acknowledge Owen a couple of times. Other then that, he has become more whiney and impatient. We are trying our best to make sure that he knows he is just as special to us. It breaks my heart to think that Myles is feeling left out but I know that he and Owen will become the best of friends when Owen grows just a little bit older.

This is a picture of the first time that Myles acknowledged his baby brother!

This weekend, my grandmother came over and met Owen for the first time! It is so sweet to see her with my babies. I still remember her touch and the comfort of being close to her when I was a child! She had a way with Owen immediately.


Well, my bed is calling to me . . . at least for another 2 hours until Owen wakes up again!! I will have to write more later. I just wanted to share a few pictures and thoughts on the last month. I also wanted to thank everyone for their congratulations and compliments! I am so grateful that Owen could be welcomed with such love! Thank you!

That's sad about Myles. Are you making sure someone is spending a little one on one time with him? Poor little guy.
