Countdown 1 year {1 1/2 weeks}

Well, we've been home a good week & a half, and life is still feeling a little crazy.
Good, just different crazy:).
As it turns out, our baby boy is super sweet, easy going, & generally happy.
He's already on a good schedule & it feels good having that accomplished.
He eats every 2 1/2 hours or so, & at night goes 3- 3 1/2 hours between feedings.
I know....awesome.
Here are some good pics of our 1st week home:

Bringing my sweet one home.
Yes, he was a reindeer.
I couldn't resist.
The nurses loved him:).

This was right after Parker walked in the door finally coming home.
I can't even describe how good it felt to have all my chickens together.
Then she fell apart about an hour or so later...
A few days with grandparents: enough said:). Ha!

Parker's words about her brother:
"This is my baby sista." 
"Hi baby Tucka."
"His hands are dirty." (hmm)
"Tucka no can have goldfish mama."
She's been learning her boundaries with having a baby around, and after a good week, I'd say she's got the hang of this baby thing.
She's still not super excited all the time about him, but when he notices her, her whole world stops.
And those are such very sweet moments.

About the only time he gets really mad is diaper changing time & here:).
Bath time.
This was a picture from his 1st bath home.
Makes me smile. Ha!
Poor guy...

Parker was sharing her Minnie Mouse "baby" with her brother.
This happens a lot.
So sweet & yet that blanket could smother him!
I never discourage the sharing...

That pig caught his eye.
Made us laugh.
Parker is in love with piggies.
So, it only makes sense that he would like them too, right?

I think these 2 will be a lot alike.
Just a hunch.
A sweet boy with his sweet daddy.
I really love these guys...

Don't you just want to pick him up & squeeze him?
He's a good squeezable baby.

Just hanging out together.
I love those kids.
