A tiny update

I am sloooowwwlllyyy getting the hang of being a mama and I am able to now do a little catching up during naps. Wyatt is such a great baby and is working out a nice little schedule that lets me get at least six hours of clustered sleep at night and my body is adapting to not getting it all in one shot. Here are a few pics from the last update. I have big plans to sit down later this week and write out the story of his birthday.


These were all on my very first Mother’s Day. He had only been home from the hospital for 2 days!


His first sponge bath was an experience. Even though he’s crying in this picture, he really seemed to like it and enjoys bath time for the most part.


Wyatt loves to hang out with his hands in the air.


Aunt Suzi got to see him for the first time since the weekend after he was born because she works 2 1/2 hours away during the week as a nanny.


We got to take our first of millions of trips to the fire department to see Daddy. I can’t wait until he’s big enough to really enjoy seeing the fire trucks and climb up in that engine to let the siren rip!

More later…Mama’s gotta eat!

Baby, Baby, Baby…oooohhh!

Stupid Justin Bieber…my SIL downloaded that ringtone for the big day. I’ve been pretty much MIA online lately, but I have a GREAT reason:


Isn’t he just adorable?!? Of course, I’m a little biased, but Justin and I think our new little one is just perfect. I’m sure I’ll have more time (or not!) to update later…just wanted to post a few of the great pics we have snapped of our first four days of parenthood.

A Quick Bathroom Update

My SIL suggested that with Wyatt coming pretty soon, we might want to trade out our glass shower doors for a shower curtain. That way I wouldn’t have to lean over metal tracks and I can have easier access to him in the tub.

Yesterday, Justin and I stopped at Wally World and picked up a white waffle weave curtain and liner and decided to try it out. We liked what we saw and decided to go ahead and commit.

We pulled out the crusty, never-clean, gross tracks and scraped and cleaned the grout for a good thirty minutes. Here is the finished result. I like the crispness of the white. Next on my list: new crisp white rugs to replace our discolored mismatching ones!

Here is a quick timeline. The first picture is before we moved in. The second is after a quick bathroom revamp about two and half years ago and the third is from this weekend. Baby steps are just the trick in our house!

If I had thought about having side-by-side comparisons, I would have made sure the pics were lined up. The green tinge in the last picture is from our newly repainted hallway that you can see better from this view.
