Meet My Little Man.


I'd like you all to meet the little man who made me a mama 6 weeks ago -- Felix Eli.



He's a mellow baby who only cries if he's hungry or needs to be changed -- otherwise, you won't hear a peep from him. He sleeps through the night like a champ, giving both mom and dad a full nights rest so we can tackle the next day. He loves his swing and being around people. He recently just started cooing too! So, mom and dad are gushing about me to everyone.

He was born with a head full of hair, and everywhere we go, everyone comments on how handsome he is & I have to agree. I know that I am probably biased because he is my baby, but I find him to be the cutest little thing on the planet.

Honestly, this little babe brings so much joy to our lives. It's surreal how much a baby changes everything. I can't believe that I carried this little guy for 9 month and that it's been almost 7 weeks since I first laid eyes on him. Pregnancy was hard on me (pregnancy + labor post coming soon) and when I think about how hard it was, I feel like it was all a hazy dream, almost like it never happened!

When I look back, I can't seem to remember a time without my little guy and quite frankly, I don't know why I'd even want to. He enhances every moment we get to spend together and he makes even the hardest parts of motherhood worthwhile. In the first couple of weeks, he'd wake me up for a feeding at 4 am and I remember being kinda cranky about it until I'd lay eyes on him. His little whimpers, as I picked him up, made all the crankiness disappear. It's true what they say -- having a baby of your own really puts into perspective a paren't love. You really don't know how much you can love someone until you see a little person looking up at you, knowing that no matter what this life may bring -- he is yours.
