Here are a few things that I have learned about motherhood so far:
1. I think my baby is cuter than any other baby!
2. It breaks my heart to hear my own baby cry.
3. I am very protective of who holds him.
4. The things that I thought would be hard are easy and the things that I thought would be easy are hard.
5. Nap time seems to be the only time I can get anything done.
6. Taking a nap myself is really hard to do.
7. Even after two months it is still hard to believe that I am a mom.
8. My favorite baby smile is the one he gives his dad when he comes home!
9. Sundays are the hardest day of the week.
10. I can only go one place each anthing else is too hard.
11. Babies really are a gift from Heaven!

This is Wilson in his blessing outfit!
This is my favorite look. He usually does it when he is standing up!
Last Friday Wilson started to suck his thumb. It has only happened twice and both times we got it on camera. How cute!
Shoes are starting to fit. These are cute ones his aunt Jenica gave him. Thanks Jen!

Two Months Old

Wilson turned two months old on Sunday. Wow time really does fly fast! He had his doctor visit on Monday and had to get three shots. I felt so bad for him (he cried so hard). He now weighs 12 lbs 8 oz and is 23.5 inches long. Can you believe he is so big? He is in the 75th percentile! My big boy! The last few days have been hard because of the shots, but I think they are getting better! Isn't he the cutest boy ever???

He can almost hold his head up long enough to sit in his bumbo!!!!

Please forgive the terrible pictures I had to take them myself, but I decided to cut my hair. I know it is what all new moms do and I wanted to be a part of the club. I hear most people say that they do it because it is easier to do and I don't know it is really true, but it was fun to have a change. I have also decided not to do highlights. They are so expensive so I guess we are going to see what my natural hair color really looks like. By the way that cute headband I am wearing I got at target with another one for only a dollar! I love dollar corner!

Best I could do for the back by myself.

Now that Wilson is almost two months I think it is about time that I post pictures of his way cute nursery. His room was already blue when we bought the house so we didn't have to paint it! We got carpet in there about a month before he was born. My sweet sweet sister gave us her old crib and crib set and it is way cute!!! My sweet mom made the curtains changing table pad and diaper holder thing. Mom and dad gave that to him for Christmas!!! I honestly love love the room. So the pictures aren't that great I just took then while Wilson is in there sleeping. Tell me what you think...

Blessing cont.

I wrote this long blog about the blessing and then it got messed up and I ran out of time and had to post something shot.

Here is what I really wanted to say.

I am so thankful to have a wonderful husband that honors his priesthood who could bless our baby. He did such a wonderful job. It was the coolest thing listening to him bless him. It was one of those moments where I couldn't believe that I am actually a mother. That the baby he was holding was ours.

I am also so thankful for a wonderful family that would come and support us. I am so thankful for my parents who did so much in helping us get ready for that day. They made and bought food and come over with chairs and tables and helped us clean up after. They are so wonderful. I am also thankful for all of our family that helped in bringing food. It all tasted so good and the day would not have gone well without their help.

And last of all I am thankful for my beautiful little boy. He is more then I could have ever asked for.

This past Sunday Ryan was able to bless Wilson. The whole day went really well. We had lots of our family here to support us! These are a few pictures of the lunch afterward.

My wonderful and talented mom made Wilson's blessing outfit. She made it from my wedding dress. It turned out so good.
