one month down, a lifetime to go...

keeping up with a blog is harder than i thought it would be. there are just too many things ahead of it like, a new baby, my husband, family, cleaning, laundry, bla bla bla. but as this past month has gone by i've jotted down little things here and there and here are some of them...

-i've got projectile pooped on (more than once)-i love how excited and happy ryan gets when he wakes up in the morning or gets home from work and sees his baby boy
-i love having ryan’s mom and nan so close (and the food they make for us doesn't hurt!)
-we dont swaddle corbin because he loves his arms out so instead we “swoodle” him and leave his arms free!
-yay for the start of football season.
-corbin smiled for the first time while awake at about 4 weeks old, otherwise he'd just do it as he fell asleep. (so cute!) but i have yet to capture it on video or with my camera! agh!
-mimi and great grandma nana went half-sies on huge jungle gym from sam’s club! when the checker told ryan's mom it was a great weekend to put it together she told him she wouldn't be putting it together til next summer. her grandbaby is only 3 weeks old! haha

-corbin’s eyes are open a lot more and i cant help but spend every second looking into those beautiful blue eyes! just like his dads.
-at night, he’s starting to sleep for longer periods, like five and six hours! woot! woot!
-i LOVED having ryan home with us those first three weeks!
-i feel like im understanding corbin more and he’s starting a “change my diaper cry” where as before i dont even think he noticed.
-breast feeding is getting easier and less painful. im no longer curling my toes in pain every time he latches on.
-my sister, mom, demarcus and jaden adore corbin and have been so helpful.
-my baby is a sweat hog! most babies love being swaddled up and socks, mittens, and hat on...not corbin! he is hot all the time. does not like his arms in a swaddle. i feed him with just his diaper on and a fan right on him and he still comes up slippery with sweat when i go to burp him!
-my baby has the prettiest blue eyes! watch out ladies! (or maybe watch out mom! eek!)
-the best six dollars i’ve ever spent was two packages of wee-wee toppers from (
-aunt diana let me borrow her fancy medela breast pump so now we actually go places and not worry about rushing home to feed him every two hours!
-i miss going to the movies and sleeping soundly for hours and hours in my own bed
-corbin seems to be noticing toys, following you with his eyes, etc
-hhhmmm lets see, corbin was six weeks old on tuesday, which means i’ve had six showers since he’s been home! ew!
-corbin loves staring at ceilings, our sky light, and walls!
-i'm into my pre-pregnancy jeans already and weigh a couple pounds less then when i started this whole journey! yay for breastfeeding!

all in all, this is the best time of my life! i couldn't imagine doing anything but staying home and spending every second with him. he's growing up so fast and i couldn't imagine missing any of it!

and here are some pictures from the last month...
