I think one of the things my husband was most looking forward to when we learned our baby was a boy, was a football buddy.

And in true Hubs style, Aaden is learning ALL ABOUT the Packers already!!!

My very best friend Suzy made our day last week with the most wonderful package.

Anyone else find it TOTALLY AWESOME my best friend send packages to my husband and baby????

I was dying waiting for David to get home to open it.

and David was soo very excited!
the first thing he did after kissing Aaden and I was open the package!

The note from Suz & Kai Baby
So ... what was inside you ask??

awesome Packers hat!

wonderful pillow for tummy time while watching the games

and a package with a bib, burp clothes and a pacifier clip.

and you better bet A has already put everything to good use.


out and about sporting his favorite hat ;)

watching the game with Daddy :)

so in love with my boys!

You are truly the best friend a girl could ask for.

3 years

On August 20th David and I celebrated 3 years of marriage. Hard to believe but it is true. I know it is probably "cliche" to say, but I truly am the happiest woman alive. David is my perfect match in so many ways, and I thank God every day for blessing me with him.

Here is a little look back to one of the happiest days of my life ...

Next year we will have been together 10 years! God is so good!!!!!!

So, for our anniversary we were looking forward to a date night out. It was hard for Mom, as leaving A is not easy. BUT being out with David made it easier. :) We had such a good date night with dinner & a movie.

Hubs even bought me flowers!!

I put them in the vase we bought on our honeymoon.

Grandma & Grandpa Watson  watched A for us. They did a good job keeping this mommy up to date throughout the night with sweet pictures. {gotta love technology!!!}

first photo with A asleep

both Grandma and A fast asleep

To my darling my love.
Thanks for the past 3 years. Thank you for being a wonderful father and for being such a good example to our son. I love you more today then when I met you, and I didn't think that was even possible. You are my favorite!!!!! the end.

I can hardly believe Aaden will be 4 weeks old on Saturday. Doesn't seem quite possible, and yet the calendar doesn't lie. I'm enjoying every minute of our days together. While they can be challenging they are so special. I know the newborn days won't last long and on the "tough spots" I remind myself how lucky we are to have A. There are so many out there who want little ones and can't have one for many reasons. Hubs and I are beyond blessed!

Aaden truly is a GREAT baby.  He rarely cries, sleeps through the night, and is very very content. How many 3 week olds do you know that sleep 8 hours straight??? A does! He even almost rolled over today ... crazy!!!

This afternoon we enjoyed BOPPY time for the first time. :)


cutie patootie!

loving being able to look all around

<3 him!

Thanks Megs for the wonderful present. I think A is going to get a lot of use out of his boppy!!!

Here is another cute picture from the day. :)

These are a little late as they are from his first bath when we brought him home from the hospital. Truth is ... he hates baths. Screams bloody murder the second he gets into the tub ... and still does.


time to get in

trying to calm him.

Thanks for the tub Aunt Suzy, & for the palm wash cloth Ms. Julie.

so fresh & so clean clean ...
plus Mommy & Daddy did it!!!!!!

Thanks Maryl & Ryan for the elephant hooded towel.

Daddy & Aaden

Naptime with Daddy = the Best time!!

We got something very special in the mail for A today ... and I think it means he is "official"

Holy Moly!!!!!

Devin Noel Photography

I truly believe finding a good photographer is as good as finding gold. Having photos to remember all the details of something as exciting as your very first child is super special. 

Devin of Devin Noel Photography is beyond amazing! She has taken family photos for us, our maternity photos, and now Aaden's newborns. David and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them, and can't wait to get them printed and framed for around the house.

Which one is your favorite?? 
Mine is the very first one ...the bow tie is ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!

A- SNORE -able!!!! FAIL (x2)

Today has been a gloomy rainy Friday so A and I have been relaxing. :)
We napped in a little later the usual ... 8:30 ... played rattles & monkeys, had tummy time, & of course had a few feedings and a small nap for A along the way.

I love watching and listening to him sleep ... he is a snorer, and trust you me ... IT IS ADORABLE!!!! Sweetest little sounds ever.

I have been trying for 2 days to get it onto youtube and have had no success. The sounds just don't show up. :(

BUT ... I did get a few cute shots of rattle time. ;)

loving the rattle Aunt Suzy bought.
He was following it all around!!

chasing a rattle around with your eyes in HARD WORK!!!!
