Week One.

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Where's the slow down button? I can't believe it's already been 7 days since Warner was welcomed into the world. Part of me feels like he has always been here, but the other part is in shock that my body went through that experience just a week ago. I think the hardest part for me so far has been getting two kids in and out of the car. Not easy, folks. Especially when you lock yourself OUT of your car and have to wait 1hr 30 min for the tow company to show up to undo your predicament. I could totally elaborate on that whole sitch, but I'll just tell you it was a long afternoon that I wish never to repeat.

Anyway, the most glorious part of having two kids is having double the cheeks to kiss and bodies to cuddle. Evelyn has been phenomenal! Jared and I have grown to love her even more {if that is even possible!} as we've watched her assume the big sister role.

And you know, I can't tell you how many times I have thought "what a wonderful world" this past week. This life is truly amazing, and what makes it so amazing are the people in my life. My mom was a wonderful help. We are all so grateful she gave up her time to come be with us. It made this experience so much more enjoyable knowing that Ev was in the care of grandma. Mom, Ev misses you! To all of our friends who have reached out and offered meals, we are so very grateful! And to all of you for extending your friendly congrats in the last post - THANK YOU! I'm sorry I don't have the time at the moment to write each of you back individually, but thank you!

So cheers to week one! It can only get easier from here on out, right? haha..ha.. ay yay yay :)
Love my little fam!

  5. What a beautiful life :) Congrats on your son being here! Warner is so handsome, a mini Jared! :) And that's so wonderful Evelyn has been such a great big sister!

    Some parts will get easier (like getting in and out of the car, I hear ya girl!) but overall it just gets more awesome...newborns add such an element of PURE LOVE in your family, doesn't it? So happy for you!

  6. I love how Ev has taken to the big sister role! So cute :-)
    Also an hour and a half! that must have been rough. Im always paranoid that I would lock Judah in the car with my keys since he likes to grab them from me. Thank goodness we have a side panel on my car door that I can press in some buttons to open it up :-)

  7. I'm so happy for you! Such a beautiful family :)

  12. You have such a cute family! Congrats on the new little one! Stopping by to say hello :)


  13. He's gorgeous and you make a good looking family of four! I'm glad he's sleeping well and that Ev is adjusting. :) Change is hard for a toddler but she's going to find that a sibling is the greatest gift you could ever give her when he starts playing with her one day. Congrats!
