"and the hardest part was letting go..."

saturday night brad and i went on our first official date since becoming parents. we left reesey with aunt shanea and went to the coldplay concert.

the concert was AWESOME! i hadn't been to a high profile concert in a long time and it was totally worth the money! they put on a breathtaking show. it must be amazing to know that you are making so many people happy in one night. i wish i was a musician. they were really cute and humble saying things like, "i hope everyone has a good time tonight for whatever you are missing tonight." it was funny. at one point the band ran off the stage and went in the stands and played a couple of songs, chris (the singer) played the harmonica and the drummer sang. it was unexpected and enlightening. brad and i had a great time getting out of the house and away from our daily routine. it was like a taste of life before baby, but i loved getting home to our little reese and squeezing him.

we went to the doctor yesterday and got him weighed and he is a whoping ten pounds nine ounces! he is growing like a weed and changing so much. he coo's when he is happy and makes the cutest noises when he is eating. he has also mostly been sleeping in his crib. it's nice for us cause i think brad and i both sleep better without his little grunts and snorts right next to us in the night. sometimes he can't calm down though and he ends up sleeping the rest of the night in the bed with us. i love snuggling with him. brad has been so awesome, even though he has to get up for work he helps out with reese in the night. he will get up with him to get him to sleep when i have been up and can't take it anymore. he is a good daddy.

reese's pieces: overdose

we got reese's pictures taken last week. freaking so dang cute! i love this little munchkin so dang much! it was so much fun to have lindsey come to our house to take our pictures, her blog is on my list of stuff to do to kill time, so you should check it out. i also got all of these in black and white but i didn't have time to go through and decide which looked better, so i went for all color.

so sleepy...

love how his little feet are up in the air!

four weeks of fury!

reese is going to be four weeks old tomorrow! i can't believe it. he has changed so much and gotten so big. i love him so much.

(the day after surgery)

well, the last few weeks have been up and down. my dad had surgery on friday because he had a tumor on his bladder. turns out that it looks like it was malignant cancer. so they removed it, took biopsies of the lining of the bladder and the muscle and we are just waiting for the results to make sure it was cancerous. they gave him a treatment of chemo while he was there, and said that if it is cancerous that he will have to come back and have it done again. the doctor and nurse kind of made it seem like it is going to be ok and that even if he comes back it will be ok. i don't know major details but i would appriciate any prayers on his behalf.

another bummer, is that my cat of seventeen years died. her name was babie and i loved her so much. the poor little thing had been getting progressively worse over the last few months. my mom told me she thought she might put her to sleep because she was limping and hardly eating anything. when i called my dad the next day he told me that she had died and we all were bawling on the phone. i get really lonely for my little babie cat. she was one of my best friends. i got her when i was in 5th grade.

so the last week has been a little hard. luckily i have a wonderful husband and baby to keep my spirits up. i love them both with all of my heart and i am truly grateful for all the other blessings in my life.

cutie cousins

first of all, how freaking cute is this guy??? he fell asleep during tummy time, and i loved how his little lips were all squished up!

on sunday we went to dinner at brad's mom's house. it was nice and we watched movies all night long. we had to get some pictures of bentley and reese together, check out the cutest cousins ever! bentley is exactly two months older than reese, but reese is catching up really fast! love that they will get to grow up together and be good cousin friends.

another week has come and gone

reese and dad on the couch
reese just after bath time, he loves a good bath.

momma and reese

my baby is growing so much! at his two week appointment with dr. brown he was back up to his birth weight of 8 lbs 5 oz. i was glad about that but the funny thing is that even though he weighs the same and is the same inches he is grown out of his newborn outfits. with that in mind we set off on saturday to park city for some 0-3 month clothes! reese was a very good boy and slept the whole time in his stroller, we got him a darling outfit for his pictures that he is getting done this week and a couple of other things. it's amazing how brad and i don't even want to shop for ourselves anymore. it's all about this little man now. we ran into terra at the outlets as i was changing reese's diaper in the car. she and lauren were so excited to see him! he didn't cry the whole diaper, clothes change in the car. he is such a good baby. love him to death!

make time stop!!!

we didn't actually go out for halloween, because brad was sick and it was just nice to stay home, so reese wore his costume yesterday instead! he is focusing really hard so he is a little cross eyed. i freaking LOVE him.

reese really likes to hold his hands together. he does it all the time.

when he gets upset and thinks it's feeding time, (and it's not) he will suck on his finger, it is about the cutest thing i have ever seen.

it's already been two weeks since my little babe was born and i can't stand for time to go that fast! i want him to stay small forever and cuddle me forever and not ever grow up. it's amazing how much you can love something so small and so suddenly. brad is totally obsessed. he is taking pictures non stop. i love it. i have the best husband, i have the best little baby boy. i am happy.
