My beautiful baby is 2 weeks old today!
I still find myself amazed that we actually did it. He is really here, he is really alive, and we finally got the happy ending we were supposed to have. Every day I get to see him grow. I find myself laughing at all the different faces he makes, and wondering if his older brother would have made those same faces. I love him and at the same time he makes me miss his brother more. I will always ride this line of grief and happiness. Currently I am trying to find the balance between the two. Having Ian in my arm helps a lot.
J has been an amazing help, and Ian has been a champ. So far, (and I hope I don’t jinks it) he is a mellow happy baby. We have actually been sleeping well at night. Last night I had to wake him up to eat. Hopefully when we go back to the doctor next week he will be gaining weight and we can stretch out those night feedings. For now I am enjoying every minute of motherhood.
Last week we were lucky enough to have newborn pictures taken by Kristen Mackey. This is one of my favorite and I can’t resist posting it again.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
