3 months

Toby is 12 weeks this week! (Not sure whether to count the weeks or months. If we follow the date, he's 3 months next week.) ANYWAY. He totally rocks the party that rocks the party. Even if I'm sooooo wanting a nice sit down on the couch with a cup of tea. I love him.

Here are pics from the past month...

(She made me wear this!)

(Smiley kiddo!)

(Rugby FEVER!)

(LOVE staring at his little feet...)

(Sometimes we get propped up on the couch haha...)

(Oops supposed to rotate this but oh well... sweet close up.)

(First nail cutting accident. DAD did it.)

(On tummy. He's not a fan... BUT so cute.)

Retreat Idea

A friend of mine who lives in the US went to one of these recently- a retreat for couples who have lost a child after they were born... so glad she and her husband got to go.

I have been thinking that it would be so good to have something like that here too, including other ones for couples who have gone through miscarriage and also those dealing with infertility. I don't think we have any resources like this in NZ... something to pray for!

Oh ya

this post 
the other day. On adoption and waiting. Talk more later.

Two Digits!

 Toby is ten whole weeks today. We are doing well. Here are some achievements:
1. Survived 6-week shots- vaccinations. The husband held him, not me- I couldn't watch!

2. We have officially graduated out of newborn clothes and diapers and are ploughing through the 3-mth outfits. Thankful we got given so many clothes as gifts.

3. Toby smiles a lot and "chats", which is really lovely because other than that they don't do much at this age!

4. With some perseverance we've managed to sleep through the night a few times. Praying we can continue! The difference it makes between waking at 4am and waking at 7am is amazing- definitely a nicer mom haha.

5. We've breastfed for 10 weeks! That's like 7 x 7 x 10 = 490 feeds roughly. RIDICULOUS. Though I've had a few rounds of clogged ducts (PAIN) and I really don't like expressing (super frustrating)... Thankful no major issues for now.

Yes it is still surreal that we have a son. And that he's super cute.

 (Fell asleep in my car seat waiting for disorganised mom and dad to leave- probably packing my diaper bag.)
 (Big chats with dad while propped up on the couch.)
(I don't really like hats...)
(...but mom makes me pose in them anyway!)
