One Month

One month you ask?!  Yes, yes!  It’s true!!! 

Is this turning into a baby blog???  Well, maybe!  It’s consuming every cell + atom of my life (if life consisted of cells + atoms – well, it sort of does) so I guess it sort of is becoming a baby blog!  Male readers do not desert me!!!  I’ll keep it somewhat entertaining I swear!

How did this happen already???  Boy, moms weren’t kidding when they said they grow up so fast.  Langdon is one month old today.  Old man.  One day I was high on hormones + staring at him, I started to cry.  “I can’t believe you’re going away to college…I’m going to meet your first girlfriend…” I weepily blubbered.  Jeff was like, “Woman!  Get a grip!!!”.  Just kidding he didn’t really say those exact words, but something more Canadian to that effect.

Langdon was very, very lucky to have his Grandma Rocky + Auntie Ashley in town from Los Angeles to save him from his crazy mom + dad in the first week of his life.  And my mom was with me for an entire month helping while I was pregnant – she is a saint.One Month - 01

I was so sad when they left – why does Langdon look like a plastic toy doll in this picture?!untitled event - 8

Baby’s first outing – McFrugal’s Warehouse Outlet.  How very apropos for our child’s first outing!One Month - 02

Jeff was embarrassed but I was like, “This is real life!  This be us!!!”.  Having a baby + good grammar are not things that go together.  Here’s Auntie Ashley + Langdon.  Jeff said, “Don’t pose in front of the maxi pads!!!”.  Whatever, Jeff.One Month - 03

First visit with Auntie Deb + his cousins!!!  The boys are going to teach Langdon to motorcross, dirt bike, skateboard…I can’t wait!  Sweet photo, no?!One Month - 04


Loves being in daddy’s arms. One Month - 07

Sadness.  Jeff has left for location to work on Hell on Wheels in Alberta for the summer.  I AM ALL ALOOOONE.  Well, for a month + a half until my mom comes back to relieve me.  Thank god I have Deb, some friends + I’ve lined up a lot of mommy + baby classes this month.  Here’s a selfie Jeff took when he reached Alberta.One Month - 08

One word – amazing.  That’s my husband, y’all.  Do you like that getup?  I sure do!

Langdon’s first bath – I got in the tub + Jeff safely handed him to me.  This boy loves his bath time!!!  Like amniotic fluid!!!  Yipeee!!!  Warm!One Month - 09

Without Jeff around we are now doing baths in the sink.  Oh so coy!!!  Oh la la!!!!One Month - 10

One month photo shoot!One Month - 11

Babies with hoodies up = irresistible!!!! One Month - 12

Okay gotta go!  Baby fussing!!!  Ta taaaa!!!  Wish me luck on my own with a newborn!  Yargh!!!

    He is beautiful! You guys did good! Something you may want to try..starting with one month, take a photo using something like a laundry basket or tote, with him In it. Then take it in the same thing each month. Its great to see how much he’s growing and changing..from being all tiny and swaddled up at one month, to sitting up, to crawling out, to standing. Using the same thing each month gives such a good perspective of how much he grows and changes. Enjoy your time with him alone..and on bad days remember, this too shall pass!
