Mommy's first day back at work

My dearest Eidan,

Mommy tried very hard not to cry today while getting ready for work. I went in to your room and did the “Good Morning” routine and you were smiling and cooing and just as happy as can be. I had to do a quick drop off at grandma’s house otherwise I would’ve stayed there, holding on to you and bawling for sure.

The 12 weeks have gone by so fast and it has been a joy to share every single moment with you. Hmmm, okay, maybe the first few weeks when I was so sleep deprived were not such fun ones!

You are truly the light of my life, and everyday I love you more and more. Here’s to a great 2012 as we celebrate a year of firsts for you (I truly hope I do not miss any!!). Stay happy and healthy, my sweet little man. And I hope you grow up knowing how much you are loved.

Love, always and forever,

9 weeks later...

Boy, people weren't kidding when they told me having a newborn = having barely any time for anything or anyone else!

My beautiful baby boy, Eidan John, was born at 4:02 p/m/ on November 10, 2011. All I can say is, it truly was love at first sight. All the pain I endured throughout the pregnancy and the labor and delivery were worth it.

This is just going to be a quick one :) I am still getting into the groove of things. But please meet my little man!

Eidan John, 7 lbs 14 oz, 19" long

The first smile he ever gave me-- completely erased all the stress I was feeling from lack of sleep and nourishment!

More pictures and stories to come!!!! I am so excited to document my little man's life :)
