Sweet Boy

Here's a few more pics of our sweet boy... most taken when he was one week old! And as I type he's over 5 weeks old... I've got some catching up to do!

Mr. Handsome

Well, I pretty much think the picture speaks for itself... This was taken when he was 7 days old. I didn't think I'd get any tiny newborn pics because of the extra time in the hospital and several days of being under the rule of the bili-blanket, but on day 7 we rebelled a bit to get some pics and take some time away from the blankets to just enjoy this sweet miracle. I got the fabric at my favorite online fabric store, the Fat Quarter Shop. They have a lot of fun and new fabrics by all of the coolest designers. You never knew fabric could be so much fun, did you? When I saw the whales I had to order a yard. And great grandma Ruth gave us the awesome hand-knit hat! Stay tuned for more of Mr. Handsome...

How to spell...

Just a quick hello while I am between feeding and I know it's been awhile since the last post! Life is busy with 3 kids!

One day a few weeks back Hannah was quietly doing something on the floor, while I was probably feeding. All of a sudden she says, "Is this how you spell Wyatt?" I looked at her and then at the floor. She had spelled WIUIT on the floor with feathers how it sounded to her. Now, mind you she is a Kindergartner and we have barely begun talking about how letters make different sounds. At this point (when she made this) we had not learned to spell any words or read any blends. Yeah, I think she pretty much doesn't need me, she will be teaching herself school! She was so proud of her accomplishment (phonetically spelling his name) that we had to take a few pics and show them to you !
