2 weeks old

I finally got around to taking some photos of my sweet little man all by himself on the day he turned two weeks old.  He seriously has the sweetest little disposition so far.  I am just soaking up his newborn days!!!

One week old

You know that this blog is pretty much going to be overrun with baby photos for a while :)  For one, since I print my blog book every year this ensures I get lots of photos of Everett included, and for two he's just so cute that I can't help but take tons of pictures!  I wasn't a photographer when I had my last two kids, so this time around I think we'll have plenty of photos ;)

A few pictures (okay a lot of pictures, lol) from around the house with Everett at one week old.

My boys at breakfast (hence Ethan's bed head). It's so crazy that I have TWO sons now :)

Gosh I love these people :)

Ethan wanted to hold Everett so I had to snap a couple of photos :)  

Some snuggles after church :)  It's nice when you can boss your husband around and tell him to take a few photos of you with the baby, hehe.

We just can't get enough of our sweet baby. We are soaking up his sweet newborn days.

Glow worm

A few cute pictures from Everett's week as a glow worm :) I'm soooooo happy to be done with that blanket!!!

First Week at Home

Our first week at home was filled with hospital and doctor visits because Everett's bilirubin level was high.  We had to use a bili blanket with him at home and keep him in it non stop for almost a week.  We said he looked like a little glow worm. Thankfully our little guy has been super chill and easy.  I was so very glad to get the okay to unplug him.  I can finally get out of the house with him and also carry him around the house!  Now we can find our new normal :)

I've been super grateful for my "village".... I've had sweet friends bringing meals and gifts during our first few weeks at home and it's been wonderful!  My mom has helped with the big kids a couple of afternoons, which was nice.  She took them out to do stuff so that I could just rest at home with the baby.  Matt has been taking Ethan to school in the mornings and will continue to do so for a couple more weeks.

Of course I've been trying to take lots of pictures :)  It was hard while Everett had to be plugged in, but I took quite a few during our first few days home. We had our newborn pictures done when he was one week old, and I can't wait to see them.

This was when we first got home from the hospital :)

Checking out their new baby brother.

Alayna adores him!  Such a sweet big sister :)

While he was on the bili blanket he couldn't wear clothes, as it had to be wrapped around him and touching his skin.
