Well, we survived our first month of "real life". I have been back at work for 4 weeks and although I am super lucky to have a job I love, I still cannot stand being away from this little dude. This month has not been without tears (mostly from this 26 year old) but we are figuring things out and settling into a routine. One thing is for sure, being a mom keeps getting better as he grows! Holden is now 26 inches long, 16 pounds 6 ounces, and is working on his two bottom front teeth! Almost all of October he has been sleeping from 9pm until I wake him up at 6:45am every morning. We feel extremely blessed to have him in our lives.
Being a lady who loves all things red and green, I stocked up on baby Christmas gear last year while Holden was still brewing. Holden is a little large for his age, so all his 6 months clothes that I predicted would fit around the holidays are quickly becoming too small. Thus, he is rocking some x-mas pajamas even sooner than this crazy Christmas lady intended. Not complaining though...he looks great in red and green!
Smiling at daddy, of course!
And now for the more season appropriate holiday, Holden's Halloween costume. Thank you Jayme for the adorable hand-me-down!
