Figuring It All Out...

I have a whole new respect for the billions of women who have gone through child birth and the first few days with a newborn baby. I'm not sure I would have survived our first week home without my mom and Tommy. My mom has been here almost every day and has been absolutely amazing, just as she was for the weeks I was on bed rest. I feel a completely new bond with Tommy and feel like we've never been stronger. I truly love him more every day. Every day gets a little easier and I can't believe how much Luke has changed already. He started smiling yesterday (my mom claims he smiled somewhere around day 3 but I don't buy it). They're mostly in his sleep, but it's the most adorably beautiful thing to see a brand new baby smile. He's so snuggly and sweet and tiny and he's a piece of me and Tommy!

  1. Patty & Tommy ... CONGRATULATIONS! He is so adorable and you're right, he looks a lot like Tommy :). I hope you are feeling better, I had a rough first week or so of recovery and I delivered naturally so I can imagine how sore you must be. The pain will go away though and they are totally worth it :) Congrats again!!

  2. Congratulations!! He is so cute!! He does look like his daddy, too! Enjoy EVERY second even the late nights - I promise you, you will miss it one day...yes, you will :) It sounds crazy, but I sit here and remember those late night feedings and miss that time I had with Bailey and how little and dependent she was on me :) Enjoy it all - he is so handsome! Hope you feel better, too!

  3. So glad to hear you are all doing well! Luke is so cute...he looks like a little man already! Having a baby changes everything-SO TRUE. :)
