To a Great Man

I just wanted to take a moment and give appreciation to my husband Karl. I've always known that I was lucky to marry such a great person. But I really can't express how happy that man makes me. I love him SO much. I don't know how I was fortunate enough to have someone like that as my husband. He makes me laugh each day and he is so supportive. He doesn't complain when the house doesn't get cleaned or when we end up having Mac and Cheese for the third time in a week (okay so it hasn't gotten that bad). He is so helpful and caring. I love watching him bond with Fischer and see the light in his eyes as he plays with his little boy. He is such a proud Dad. He has been great with him and is so willing to take his turn with him at night or change a diaper. He just gets up and does it.
Karl amazes me. I love that we can talk about anything. I love that he encourages me to be better or is just a listening ear when things are tough.
Thank you for everything Karl. I LOVE YOU!

The "Other" Mother

So my dog Sadie has really taken a liking to Fischer. She is such a good helper and thinks she needs to mother him. When Fischer cries at night she is the first one up running into his room to make sure he is okay. When a diaper needs to be changed she is right there making sure I do an adequate job and the other night I found her sleeping in the baby room. She is such a funny dog. As I was taking pictures of Fischer she had to come lay down and join him. I have a feeling they will be the best of friends.

1 Month Old

I can't believe Fischer is 1 month old today. He has been such a joy to our family. I can't imagine my life without him. Here are some funny/fun facts about my little man this month.
  • He likes to stoke his hair when sleeping
  • He hates being naked and having his diaper changed.
  • He loves to sleep and be held.
  • He can roll over from his tummy to his back.
  • He's ticklish on his back.
  • His bouncer is his favorite thing.

Roll Over

I am constantly amazed at my little man. Each day he gets stronger and stronger and continues to amaze me. Today Fischer rolled over all by himself. I know most people probably wouldn't care but I was so proud of my little man. I couldn't believe how strong he was getting. My favorite was his face after he accomplished it. He looked like he had just concord the world. I think he was as surprised as I was. I put him back on his stomach to see if he would do it again just to see if it happened to be an accidental roll over but he did. He is also starting to hold up his head on his own and loves to look around.

3 Weeks Old

So yesterday my baby turned three weeks old. I can't believe how fast time is going by. It just seems like yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital. So far it has been an incredible experience; one that has been harder and better then I could have ever imagined. I love my little man. He is such a sweetheart and has the sweetest little personality. He has been a great baby thus far and has been very patient with his not so professional parents. We are so blessed to have him in our lives and only after three weeks I don't know how we ever lived without him.
Currently "mom" is working on getting some sort of schedule/routine together. I think the routine is more for my sake then for his but with me going back to work in a few weeks I would like to have something established or some routine put in place. Hopefully it'll all work out well.

My Handsome Little Man

So I've been having issues getting these pictures but I finally got them after a lot of arguing with my computer and a very patient Sister-in-law who continued to get me copies of the photos. Thanks Aunt Brooke for taking the pictures.
