Almost four weeks.

I can't believe how fast the time is flying by. I'm just in shock that 'baby boy' will be four weeks - 1 month - in just a short couple of days!
So far we are doing great. This is my first night awake past 9pm since we have gotten home. He is just an angel. He is a great sleeper, a love to snuggle and coo at us in the evenings. I mean I absolutely have no complaints with this kid. None. This is way easier then I thought it was going to be.. he just eats, sleeps and poops. He's gotten on a great schedule that he doesn't falter from - which is amazing. I, amazingly, have no complaints... at all.

I watched this video post on facebook a while back on the things parents swore they'd never do or their kids would never do.. and I have to laugh. I'm that parent.. so far. I swore I'd never take my kid out of the house before the age of six weeks - just in case they'd catch a cold or something. This kid has been to both Dad's work places, grocery shopping, the NEX, the Dr's office, Target, Wal-Mart, the Clothing NEX, out to eat, and to get his pictures done. Seriously. In all fairness though (before people start judging me) Our pediatrician suggested that we take him out and get his body immuned to various things while he is young. Exposing him to different places helps build up his immune system and will 'possibly' help him stay healthy.

I also said I'd never be that parent to just let your kids cry it out - umm yea failed that one too. 'Baby boy' went a week straight of crying for a three hour block.. drove us nuts! At moments you just have to walk away and get your head on straight but there is nothing worse then hearing a baby cry that you cant' seem to console. We got a swing and he loves it and the crying stopped. Who knew!

The hubby is already back to work and 'baby boy' and I have managed a full week on our own. Again, I feel that we have managed pretty well. So far we have built a great schedule & everything is running pretty smoothly. Oh also JcPenny's has this great military package for their portraits! Basically all you pay is $3.99 per sheet of the pictures that you want. We got some incredibly cute pictures and spent less then $60!! So if you can.. check it out! {not a paid advertisement just sharing the savings}

Lastly.. Luke Bryan's new albums "Kill The Lights" 'drops' today.. if you didn't pre-order his album then you should check out the tracks! He has some amazing new songs on this album that I'm super in love with already! {Yes, I pre-ordered the album} I'm in L.O.V.E with "Strip It Down".. that is one sexy song. {not a paid advertisement just sharing some jams}

Anyway hope everyone has a great weekend & gets out in the sun away from electronics. I also hope that you join me next Wednesday for "Write or Die Wednesday" link up!!
