I wasn't up to having 30+ people around ALL day while still trying to figure out so much new mom stuff.
The family decided to have the gathering at my sisters church here in town and then come over to our house for a couple of hours to do the gift exchange and family picture. That worked out quite well :). Brandon's family came over and brought a Thanksgiving meal earlier in the day-which was manageable. It was wonderful being able to celebrate with both families that day and for everyone to meet our little man.
Our little man has been growing and growing. He is now over 11 pounds and doing well despite having a cold. :(
Isaiah has impressed us from day one with how strong he is. He can hold his head up so easily most times and he loves to push himself up into a standing position when we are holding him. He is incredibly strong for being 5 weeks old.(6 weeks old tomorrow!!).
He LOVES to smile and I feel like he would love laughing as well if he could do it when he wants. He smiles SO hard sometimes that I feel like it's his way of laughing for now. It's darling.
Brandon was gone for two weeks( two weeks ago)...he had training for his job in CO and ND. We missed him soooo much while he was gone!!
Tomorrow Isaiah will be SIX weeks old. I can't believe it!!! When people kept saying "it goes by so fast! Enjoy it!" they weren't kidding in the LEAST! Boy. I hope it doesn't keep going by at this pace.
He has already changed sooo much.
(most of these pictures are 2-3 weeks old now!!)
Have a most wonderful New Year!
