The Summer Place

We made it out for Ethan's inagural trip to the Summer Place, Grandma and Grandpa Cooks home for the summer time.
When I was pregnant and Darin and I were discussing how we thought we would be as parents I told him I just knew he would be a great dad...his response...I know, I had the best example.

1 Month

Oh, Ethan, what an amazing month this has been. You fit so seemlessly into our lives, it is really quite incredable. I feel (somewhat) like I am getting a hang of this motherhood thing and every day my confidence grows a little bit more. It is really the best feeling when nothing will calm you except being in the arms of your momma (daddy is trying his best not to take that personally) You are changing every day and daddy and I are constantly amazed. You like nothing more than to be held and we are more than happy to oblige (though we will have to break that habit eventually before we have a 1 year old who won't sleep in his bed!)
We have been sticking pretty close to home this past month, lettting you get used to your surroundings and letting us get used to your routine (ha!) but I think we are going to be venturing out a bit more soon and let you see a bit more of your world.

My mommy brain will not allow me to figure out how to post this video right onto blogger. Grab the tissues and click on the link below.

Carrie, I really can't thank you enough.

Best seat in the house

Just 2 days old. Daddy got upset that I took this picture thinking I was torturing and leaving you all alone. Really, I was just a foot away and no harm done. Oh so stinkin' cute!
