Little man

Hello internet! And to think, I thought I'd have tons of time for projects, and emailing and internetting once I stopped working. Yeah right. Being a mom is much more time consuming than being a Director of HR. I should have listened to all of you who knew better. :)

Charlie has been with us now for 12 days and he's amazing. He's adorable and funny and he changes day by day. He's sleeping all night (except when we wake him up for feedings), he's eating like a champ, he's started to have fussy periods in the afternoon/evenings but for the most part he's happy and content and we love having him around.

We can tell Charlie is gaining weight already and soon, he won't be the tiny little 6lb. 5oz. boy that arrived to us. But for now I'll leave you all w/this picture. When we were registering for baby things and such, I never ever considered that we might have a little baby. I figured I'd follow in the footsteps of my sisters who have had babies topping out at 10lbs. (no joke). I figured 0-3 month sized clothing would be nearly unnecessary for us and newborn size? Puh-lease. Well, our little nugget is swimming in his 0-3 month clothing. We have a few small onesies that fit him pretty well but nothing with legs. We took him out on a walk in Rockridge today and wanted him to have pants on and pretty much gave up on trying to match him. Here's the pathetic outfit he wore out today in public. No worries...he was covered under a blanket the whole time. When this kid gets a little bigger, he's going to be an amazing dresser.

He still cute even if his parents don't put him in matching clothes!

He's so cute! We had the same problem with Olive when she was born---I thought there was no way we'd have a tiny baby, so we had no clothes that fit her.
Congratulations! I am so excited for you guys, and he couldn't be cuter.
