Yesterday, Paxton was 1 week old! John David and I were talking just this morning about how we’ve only had him a week, yet it already seems like we’ve had him forever! I cannot imagine life without this little guy!
He’s had a big week with visits from family and friends! He met his Granddaddy and Nannie Clark, Grandpa and Grandmother Boreing, Aunt Jill, Aunt Rebekah and Cousin Emerson, Great Grandpa and Great Grandma Pittma, Great Grandpa and Great Grandma Boreing and Great Aunt Pam plus many special friends from church!
Here is Paxton at exactly one week old! This is his Daddy’s Blackberry he is holding at 12:34 p.m.! (John David is hoping he learns to love technology at an early age!)
Mommy and Paxton took a nice afternoon nap together after Grandmother and Grandpa, Great Grandpa and Great Grandma Boreing and Great Aunt Pam left. It was so sweet to cuddle my sweet babe!
Daddy and Paxton enjoying some snuggle time! Paxton & I are so blessed to have a wonderful Daddy & husband! He changes dirty diapers, dresses Paxton and is an amazing father who helps me out so much! (He’s already not looking forward to going back to work and missing us during the day…he did say he’ll take care of Paxton after work!)
1-week-old Paxton and a teddy bear that was given to my mom at a baby shower for me! I loved this teddy as a child and it is one of the few stuffed animals that I saved from my childhood for my children.
In our blue gowns! We were both comfy and ready for bed!
Being a mother has been wonderful so far! We have been blessed with a good baby who, for the past 3 nights, has slept from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. which is wonderful for Mommy! Breastfeeding has been much easier than I was anticipating, Paxton was able to latch right after birth and has not had any issues which I am so grateful for!
We both look at him and are in awe of God’s goodness. He is such an amazing gift from God that we have the privilege to raise and we are striving to be wonderful Christian parents to our son. I also have been in awe of God’s creation both from looking at our new baby and watching my body going from hugely pregnant to almost normal in a week’s time, God so intricately crafted us together.
