Sunday best (best we could do that is😂) & 1st family pic (outside the hospital). Figured it was about time since Wes is already almost 6 weeks. How?!😫 Every passing stage is so bittersweet..they become less of a baby but more of their personality comes out which is so fun! They get bigger & lose their baby smell but sleep longer! So, everything’s a trade off I guess & at the risk of sounding all rainbows & sunshine..each stage is wonderful because we get to be there for it & it’s pretty amazing getting to see a person grow up before your very eyes.
Straight flexin. This little chunker is 4 weeks old already..how?! Well yesterday but we’re never on time these days anyway so why start now? He’s already smiling #advanced 💁🏻♀️😂 has the best lips & spiky hair, & is the chillest baby but definitely knows what he likes & doesn’t & lets us know! Hopefully he forgives me for posting pic #4 someday😉I just couldn’t help myself! You’re pretty easy to love sweet Westy boy❤️
Life has been a lot of nursing while consoling a toddler who’s fallen down, hungry, or wants to “hold you”, while also needing to pee for the last 30 mins & realizing I’m starving! But for the most part, we’ve been adjusting very well, Coop has been playing so great by himself, & really this newborn phase is the easiest because when Wes isn’t “I’M STARVING RIGHT NOW FEED ME WOMAN”, he’s mostly chill or sleeping. I could not have done this without my hubs changing the nighttime diapers so I can sleep more & all our sweet friends & fam who have brought us meals & helped out so much! Happy 2 weeks (yesterday) to our cute little snuggle bug. You sure were worth the wait, have fit right in & we already can’t imagine life without you. Thanks for makin it easy on us & sleeping even better than your brother did!
And then there were 4👨👩👦👦 I cannot thank @kara.knapp enough for capturing these first moments of us that I will treasure forever!
Weston Gilbert. 8lbs 10 oz. 1/22/20. 11:11pm You are such a gift sweet boy & we love you beyond what our words could express❤️
Been very reminiscent recently (not just because it’s a new decade) but because these are the last days of just having 1 little guy & I’ve been soaking up all the fun moments & cute things he does (well..as much as I can @ 39 weeks pregnant & sore as all get up) before I have a newborn to distract me. Andrew & I never stop talking about what a delight he is & are crossing our fingers that his little bro is just as chill & sweet. I absolutely cannot wait for this new chapter, & mostly am so grateful I can breath through my nose again (after almost 2 weeks of dealing with the plague..glad we got THAT over with😷 also the reason for no Christmas/NY post🤦🏻♀️). Baby #2 is getting low & we’re all just waiting for his grand entrance now & is officially trying to win the contest for holding out longer than his big bro so..we’re ready for ya bud, you’ve got nothing to prove..really!😂
Perks of being pregnant during the holidays...no need to suck it in for pictures or unbutton pants after eating. Happy Thanksgiving to me 😂 Can’t believe it’s our last as a fam of 3, I’m already so excited to see next years family picture!
Happy 32 weeks little guy! You’ve been a bit harder on your mom than your brother was, though that could just be because I’m running after him all day 😂 But we’re SO grateful for you & absolutely cannot wait to meet you & see who you are! I can’t believe how fast you’ve grown & know you’ll be here before we know it, so I’ll just keep taking Epsom salt baths & love feeling you move (the best part of the pregnancy process amiright?) You can push on my bladder all day long, because it’s funny to think of you having a little dance party in there...but ya know..if you could chill out in the middle of the night that’d be awesome! So so grateful for @jaimedavisphoto who somehow made us look put together & made me look cute when I feel like a beached whale 😴 She’s kind of a magician & we LOVE seeing her anytime she visits AZ..the last time being when she shot our wedding 😍 Wouldn’t want anyone else to capture our most special moments!
