Today was a day of firsts for Evan...just not the best "first" things to remember. The past few days Evan has been congested and wheezing a little bit and today I called the doctor to get him checked out just to make sure things were okay. It is a good thing we went in...Evan has his first cold :( but he also has bronchiolitis. He had his first xray, which he did not like being held down (by me) and he also had his first breathing treatment. Evan and I were sent home with his prescription, nebulizer and fish mask and the directions to keep an eye on him so it doesn't get worse. The good news is that he is still eating and gaining weight...Evan tipped the scales today at a whopping 10 lbs. 5 oz!!! Here's hoping our little guy starts to feel better soon!

The magic of the...

Vacuum! Whenever you are fussy your dad works his magic and vacuums the living room. Each and every time it soothes you and puts you back to sleep! You are much more relaxed every time it is turned on, so it is a good thing Jack is shedding and we use this every day! Don't you just love the leftover milk next to his lips!?! ha!

This little piggy...

Looking back...

Looking back at this past month with Evan has been amazing and our dreams finally came true. Mike and I love being parents and wouldn't trade it for the world. We could stare at our son for hours and love all of his different facial expressions. :) This month has passed by so quickly and we are so excited to see what month 2 will bring. I never knew how much love my heart could hold until Evan was here...we are so lucky and blessed!

Month by Month Picture

I've seen lots of other families take month by month pictures of their little one and I've decided to do that as well with our little guy! Here is month 1...I love this look on his face on the first picture, trying to act shy! Happy 1 month Evan! Slow down a little will ya?! :)

1 month old

tummy time!

Love this one of Evan sticking his tongue out! :)

Screaming...he's not too sure about this!

Evan wasn't so sure about "official" tummy time! He is doing well holding his head up and likes laying on our chest, but wasn't too keen on this surfboard mat. I think he just needs more practice! He is so stinkin' cute on it though!

1 month

Happy 1 month birth day Evan Samuel!
A wee bit of heaven drifted down from above- A handful of happiness, a heart full of love. The mystery of life, so sacred and sweet- The giver of joy so deep and complete. Precious and priceless, so lovable, too- The world's sweetest miracle, baby, is you. -- Author:Helen Steiner Rice

Weekend away

We headed to St. Louis for Evan's first road trip. He did amazing! He slept the entire way there and back which was nice! :) He got to meet a lot of family and we all had a great time.


I love this last pic of Jack and Evan in the car on the way home!
