Approaching near Sanity

Whoa, I feel like these last (almost) 7 weeks have been the longest of my life, yet the shortest. I'm not sure if they ever tell you how hard it is to have a newborn, but I believe I will enjoy these next few weeks,months, years much more.
I promise I'll be back with outfit post soon, but getting into the grove of spit-up, easy access shirts to nurse and fitting into my new body adjustments hasn't come easy.
Things I've learned thus far:
1) Babies are hard, like really really hard. Prop goes to all the mothers out there, why did no one ever tell me HOW hard it was.
2) You really do not need that much sleep.
3) You can sleep in the most ridiculous positions.
4) Pacifiers are your best friend.
5) Gray shirts are not.
6) Going anywhere is not simple.
7) Sometimes you miss meals.
8) When your baby smiles for the first time it has to be one of the best feelings in the world.

This was when he was two weeks old. I still wasn't feeling myself and I fell in love with these dresses. So comfy!
I literally bought all the colors.

Maternity Photos

I was lucky to find a ex co-worker to do some of my maternity photos, she does this on the side so she was not to terribly expensive. We were happy with the shoot and the way they turned out!

And then a daily dose of cuteness
This little guy is 5 weeks old today!!

One Week Before

So things are finally starting to settle down.
My baby will be 4 weeks old tomorrow! It has gone by so fast yet so very slow.
I do have to say the hardest part is not feeling yourself.
Luckily I have lost just about all the baby weight but for all those moms out there you know there is a little more skin in the mid-section now.
I'll blog more about that later!

These photos were from a week before giving birth. I think what I had the most fun with while being pregnant was the combinations of outfits I was coming up with.
