There has been a lot of this going on these days

I can hardly believe he is all ready a month old. Time sure does fly when you are changing diapers, washing bottles and trying to get a baby on anything that resembles a schedule! The latter has not happened as of yet , but we are still working on it. He has his own time frame in mind ..I think.

I did manage to craft a little bit during one of his cat naps last week. Cant share what I made , it is for a friend who I have not mailed it off to yet!

Speaking of friends , one of my besties is hosting a NEW SWAP for all you interested. Hop on over to Marias at the Junkkdrawer and check out this fun


Well hubby will be home in just a few to go and drop off his car at the shop, its leaking some kind of fluid , so I have to drag myself and the baby out in the rain (did I mention it has rained for 2 weeks!)
Hope everyone is having a fab Monday!

I cant stop kissing these little cheeks!

Where does the time go? I can not believe he is all ready 2 weeks old! I just love snuggling him and I think that has become a problem ... you see he will no longer go in his bassinet or anywhere for that matter when he is still awake. So in the middle of the night when I can barely keep my eyes open and his little eyes are WIDE awake staring at me , I have to hold him until he is asleep.
Guess I need to work on putting him down some more.
The good news is he has decided he can be a bottle baby and has drank 3 ounces every feeding for the last 24 hours which = him sleeping 3 to 4 hours at a time ...WOHOO!!
Oh the things you forget about these wee little ones.

I received the cutest package in the mail this week from my sweet Bloggie friend Sarah at Gypsy Mermaid

I adore this card and envelope!

She sent some handmade burp clothes and an adorable onesie for Preston that match his room with monkeys, so thoughtful.
She also sent something for me , which made me feel very special! The cute little Easter pail decoration with adorable little chicks! This was one of the few things she had that survived the horrific hurricane that they experienced. How sweet is that?
If your reading this girlie , I truly appreciate it all!

So pretty I didn't want to open it!

Oh and before I forget my hubby , who I have to dote on for a minute . I am so thankful for him, he has been home with Preston and I since he was born and I couldn't be more thankful. He is such a huge help , tackling the dirty diapers even. He let me sleep until noon one day this past week, when he took the baby downstairs and that was heaven . He is such a good daddy and a great husband!
We just celebrated our 13th anniversary a few weeks ago and I was so consumed with having the baby , I forgot to post my new bracelet he surprised me with

I love it of course , thanks babe!

Time to go get ready to try and find some newborn diapers on this island. I didn't buy a ton of them seeings how my DR. kept saying he was going to be a BIG BABY and now we are almost out of that size and cant find them here on our base..they have every size BUT newborn ...CRAZY!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Good changes

Wow its been a long time since we have had a baby in the house and I forgot how functioning on very little sleep actually is! For the most part Preston is a very calm and happy baby , we have a slight difference of opinion though...he thinks he needs to eat every hour or 2 ! I tell him you are a bottle baby not a boob baby !!! You are supposed to go longer than an hour and you are supposed to actually drink the bottle not fall asleep ! Poor thing such a rough

Austin just adores his new baby brother and he loves to hold and even feed him. Ask him if he wants to change his diaper and he's outta here! haha
He loves for Preston to wake him up for school in the morning and tuck him into bed at night, so sweet!

I have decided I really need to get with it and start scrap booking again , I only have 1000 pics and hes just a little over a week old ..hah

well its that time again ...its been a little over an hour and hes demanding a bottle!
Thanks to everyone for all the sweet comments and well wishes!
