For those of you who don’t know, I have a good explanation from my blog-absence of late: I had a baby!
Ethan arrived on December 2, 2012, at 11:46 pm. He was 6 days early (I’m not complaining!). For those of you who like to know this stuff, he was 7 lb. 5 oz, and 21.5″ long. He’s suuuuch a long boy, in fact, that at 2.5 months he is wearing 3-6 month sleepers, and some 9 month tops! What!? I’m blaming my tall brothers.
Anyway, having a baby is CRAZY. It’s both amazing and hard, and sometimes both at the exact same time. Marcus and I agree that the net effect has been overwhelmingly positive. This little dude has turned our life on its head, but in the best way. We are SO in love with this kid. We think he’s simply amazing, and we’re only just getting to know him. Now I get why parents want to talk about their kids so much. I’m obsessed!! (But don’t worry, I promise I will keep asking questions about your life, too.)
I could go on and on about these past months – lessons learned, ways God has met us in this, funny stories, etc. – and maybe sometime I will, but I make no apology for my absence from the blogosphere (and the veeery part-time nature of my Blue Bird work in general right now): I will update more faithfully again bit by bit, but I just don’t have tons of extra time these days. I think I am spending it well, to prioritize cuddles and feedings and changes and baths and tummy time and “conversations” (he is trying his darndest to talk, it seems) and kisses and burps and lullabies (and washing diapers and wiping baby poo off walls and mopping spit-up….).
Baby-boo is stirring right now, so I should go tend to him:) I will leave you with some pictures from our first few months together (see below).
Love to you all,
Meg (& Marcus)
Ethan: 10 days old
And below: 11 weeks old (ish). Woweeeeeee! He has changed a lot; namely in fatness of cheeks and blueness of eyes, I think.
