|Bright lights of home on our first night!|
|Big blue eyes, silky soft hair, great skin - I'm a little jealous.|
And speaking of eyes, he has a clogged tear duct too! So we've been massaging his little left eye because it is constantly goopy and watery. His ped gave us a prescription cream for the eye which he said I can use if I think it is getting out of control, but I'm hesitant to use a prescription cream on a one-month old for a problem that usually can clear itself up. Every couple of days it clears up and I think it is going away, but then it comes back with a vengeance
|3 weeks old - already trying to rush into the teen years with that acne. Poor buddy.|
|Are you trying to hold out on me?!|
|First big family outing was to the Renaissance Festival! They both slept most of the day.|
When he is awake though, he is just so wide-eyed and sweet. He is trying so hard to control his little head, he can hold it up for several seconds at a time and then ends up wobbling around like a bobblehead. I am loving watching his progress so quickly through this early development... it is so beautiful. I try not to compare him to Little Man because even if they were both typical kids I know they'd progress at different rates, but it is very hard not to notice how drastically different his newborn stage is going for both of us.
|Another photo from his newborn shoot. I love this one, even though Little Man ran away and refused to get in the picture.|
I thought about getting the onesie stickers that everyone and their mother is using to mark Baby Vegas' monthly progress in photos. I'd like to say that I didn't get them because we like to forge our own path or be super creative - but really I procrastinated too much to order them off Etsy or something, and then had no idea where they'd be in a "real" store. So instead I ended up getting some iron-on numbers from Michael's and making the onesie myself, which I actually think turned out so much cuter than the stickers would have!! Not to mention the added bonus of his pictures being special and really standing out from the mainstream baby crowd. (HUMBLE BRAG ALERT.) I did steal an idea from a friend of mine who took her monthly baby photos alongside a Cabbage Patch doll to show how small her little guy was, and we are going to use a koala bear that belonged to Hubs' dad as our size comparison. And as a tribute to my family, we are taking the pictures on our glider - because every early baby picture of me is on this old red recliner that I remember loving to snuggle on as a kid.
|Next time I will remember to take these in daylight!! I am a hopeless procrastinator.|
|Precious right? I love it.|
