It’s been a month since Nolan Lane Eldreth came into the world. He fits into our lives so perfect. We’re slowly getting the hang of parenting. Our days off look a lot more boring now, (We take turns napping, ha)! Brandon is back at work, his week off went too fast. My days are filled with feedings, diaper changes, and cat naps but that feels pretty normal now. We’re on an adventure as we try to figure out this new life, working full time, running a part time business and staying afloat with friends and family. It’s complicated, unpredictable and messy at times, but I really wouldn’t have it any other way. In every season, including this one, I have been so blessed even when it gets hard. I’ll be returning to my day job soon, it’s truly bittersweet. I love every moment I get to spend with my little bear. I honestly can’t imagine a day without him but moms all over the world do it, as will I.

He smiles a lot, especially in the morning.
7 a.m is his favorite, wish I could say the same for me.
He’s a content, happy baby
We’re still working on a bedtime routine.
He’s sleeping in his bassinet beside our bed. He wakes up 2-3 times a night.
He can sleep through anything, the sound of a vacuum does not bother him one bit
He loves to EAT. We’re still breastfeeding, so far so good
He’s a thumb sucker
He’s an alert curious little thing
He’s very strong - we didn’t have the wobbly newborn head stage all that much.
He’s still fitting in his newborn clothes
He legs are so tiny – ready for them to fatten up, ha!
He still has brown hair and the prettiest blue eyes
He dreams a lot and makes the cutest noises
He loves to nap on our chest, we try not to make this a habit but it’s the sweetest bonding time
We love rocking in his rocking chair
He has the cutest mean mug look EVER
Riding in the car is bliss…he falls asleep every time
He sleeps with a fan, white noise helps him sleep longer
He loves to hear me sing, it puts him right to sleep every time
