Living Life One Handed

So yeah, I'm a mom! After 5 years of infertility treatments and heartache I'm a mom to the most perfect little boy that ever lived. So perfect in fact that I can't put him down! (hence the title of the post and the one handed typing that has become habit.)

I hope to be able to post my/his birth story soon, I need more than five min and more than one hand. :) In the mean time lets just say it was long, and used alot of drugs!

So lets start where we are, my Connor-bear or CB (as I will refer to him in this blog) is a month old. It's amazing to me how fast time goes by. I would always hear other parents say this and always thought they were full of it, now I know that this is the truth.

So lets hit the stats shall we?

Eye Color: steel blue
Hair: Full head, straight and dark brown
Length: 23 in
Weight: 7.7 pounds
Milestones: Smiles, some head control, can almost roll over.
Sleep: between 2-3 hours, sleeps best in Mom or Dad's arms.
Breast Feeding: close to 3 hours, this still hurts me but I have been assured by the Lactation Consultants that he is latching on corectly. I keep waiting for the pain to go away.
Tummy Time: 10-20 min every other day... I try to do everyday but lets face it some days we just dont get there.

So thats it for now... Hope to have the Birth story up tomorrow... we will see.

Gearing up for fall

Todays post is all the things I am looking foward to this fall. I LOVE fall, I love watching the trees turn, the smell in the air the promise of christmas in the air! I CAN NOT WAIT!!!


The leaves changing colors. Here in Kentucky this is one of the most beautiful sights!

Finding the perfect pumpkin at Boyd Orchards! I can not wait to take Connor out there this fall :)

Kentucky Football Games. We have one of the worst teams in the SEC and we are still devoted. No matter how much UK athletics wants to raise the price we like idiots keep coming back for more. Why? Well it's more than the game it's self, it's a tradition I've been going to these games for the last 27 years I dont know what I would do on a home game saturday if I wernt at the stadium tailgating! Which is the other reason to go! The smell of the grils the random C-A-T-S being yelled from accross the parking lot. I LOVE IT!!

Jeans, Boots and Sweaters! These are my favorite clothes to wear! I love feeling snuggle…
