Mother's Day this year was so fantastic! I celebrated my first Mother's Day back in 2007 when I was pregnant with Avery. We didn't know she would leave us at that point and I just remember being so excited to be a mom! The next 3 Mother's Days came and went and they were bittersweet. I was still a mother but I wasn't able to hold my child and people didn't wish me a Happy Mother's Day because I wasn't a "normal" mom. This year Skeet kept asking me what I wanted for Mother's Day and every time he'd ask my answer would be the same. I have already received the best gift ever... nothing could top it. It was an amazing day. I spent the entire day loving on my little guy and enjoying every second. I thought a lot about Miss Avery too but I think she wants me to be happy and to enjoy her brother. I don't think she wants me to be sad right now. I knew that having another child wouldn't make me forget her and wouldn't heal my heart completely but I could never have imagined how much it does help to hold my little man. I can't help but be blissfully happy! Being his mom is just so much better than I ever could have imagined!
Today is Sawyer's 2 week birthday. I can't believe how much he changes and grows every day. Time is just flying by and although I am trying to not focus on that, I can't help but feel a little sad that in 8 weeks I will be returning to work and will be missing out on so much of him. I wish so badly that I could be a stay at home mom!! I hope all of you out there that get to stay at home with your kids know how lucky you are! As much as I adore Kim, Sawyer's soon to be 2nd mom, I am so jealous of all of the time she will have with him that I won't. It is killing me already! I can't imagine what a wreck I am going to be in 8 weeks!
In the last few days Sawyer has had his first bath, which he didn't love. He did however love his second bath. Skeet and I are a great team and I don't know what I am going to do when he starts going on fires and I have to bathe Mr. Sawyer myself!! He still loves having his hair washed and I love how big and bright his eyes are when his daddy is washing his hair!! I always volunteer to hold him while Skeet washes because I get to watch his cute little face!
Sawyer still hates to have his diaper changed and to be dressed or undressed! We did however, have a couple of diaper changes in the last couple of days that he didn't scream through. I think that is good progress!
He is still sleeping okay. Not great but I know it could be much worse. I am getting between 4 and 6 hours of sleep a night, only it is in 1-2 hour increments! I think he still has his nights and days mixed up because I think he could sleep 5 or 6 hours straight in the day if I didn't wake him up to eat. But at night he is up every 2 to 2.5 hours wanting to eat! All of this eating is showing on his chubby little face and his cheeks are getting more kissable every day!
He has his 2 week check up tomorrow so I will post his stats then! Let me just say again how much I adore my little boy! I think it's finally sinking in that he is actually mine and that I get to keep him! He is so cuddly and lovable! I can't get enough!
With the man who made it all possible, Dr. S
I love this outfit on him!
Wide awake after his first bath!
