week one

Sunday, November 6

I'm not sure I have the words to accurately describe the love high that is week one. In fact, I know I don't. It's felt like one day and forever at the same time -- the happiest we've ever been. Getting to know our little Everett - his coos, his grunts, his perfected ability to pee on us {which we have no qualms with because that means it's bath time}, his drunken smile after a feeding, the way his froggy legs tuck under him or how his arms sprawl out across our chests while he sleeps. Or my favorite move - when his skinny legs fly up and hang in the air while he stretches his toes.
It's still sinking in that he's ours. And mine. I have a son!
While it makes me a tiny bit sad that our little Ever is already a week old {and that it's even possible his face has changed so much already!}, I am so excited for all the upcoming weeks, months and momentous occasions that come with them. Like this week's excitement, when he kept his eyes open and stared at us for 10 whole minutes. Oh, those still-dark-blue eyes. Melt us like butter.

These pictures of you and Everett are way too sweet and so is the way you write about him. I can "read" the love in your words.

Christine said...

Congratulations! Being {and becoming} a mom is such an amazing experience. So much love. I remember a friend trying to describe the love you feel for your children while I was still pregnant. I. had. no. idea. And what's crazier still, is that you only grow to love them more. Think that's impossible? Just you wait and see :)

Deanie said...

Soo adorable (and that hat!). And so happy for both of you. Looking forward to watching little E grow! :)

Oh Sydney.. by reading this wonderful diary of a new mother in these first moments, hours and days you make me remember every single second of those first days as a new mama I was when my now 2 year old was born!!

I understand and share the LOVE HIGH! It's SO MUCH, it's SO INTENSE, it's so difficult to really put into words, isn't it?

Love simply pours out of each pore in your body.. and it never stops, and if you can believe me... it's more and more every day of their life!! My little one is two years old, two years I've been loving someone like this.. BLISS HAPPINESS UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.... HEAVEN ON EARTH

Much love,

Paula

I would really like to know your secret to somehow looking amazing after having a baby! How are you already in normal pants?

On a less shallow note: Your babes is so precious. I love that you are referring to him as your little Ever :] So darling.

Kayla said...

congrats on your new little one!! he looks perfect! I love how you described your first week of being a mom. I don't have any kids of my own yet, but my friends who do have always made the first week sound absolutely terrible. and i'm sure you are getting no sleep and are way tired, but I love that you focus on how blessed you are and I can tell you are so in love with your little guy! it's a refreshing point of view - and I hope I can have a heart full of gratitude like you do, instead of complaining about all the hard times. you are such a beautiful mom!

The Residents of the 600 Square Foot Home said...

I am so happy for you and your family! ...and those feelings you have will never go away, I woke my son up, rubbing his back and thought to myself, I have a son. It's amazing.

kaleen said...

Oh, this post made me teary-eyed! I love how you describe your feelings. My little boy is 5 months old now. I'm loving every minute, but I would love to relieve those first few weeks. They were more stressful for me than I thought they would be and I wish I could have taken more advantage of cuddling him and just staring at his perfect body. These newborns are so precious! I'm so happy for you!

Allie said...

Oh my, he is so so beautiful! And you look gorgeous! Enjoy this time, it sure is special.
