first week

Happy to be home.
We are finally a new little family.
Of course we experienced a lot of firsts:

-first diaper blow out (meconium...yuck)
-first bath
-first photo therapy treatments for Jaundice
-first all nighter
-first experience with the binky
-first doctor's appointment
-first time signing as a legal guardian for someone else
-first car ride (a very slow car ride)
-first time our hearts have been stolen by something so small.

 I love firsts.
and I love my little man.

one year

It's been one year since we moved into our little cottage.  Before, we were nomads living place to place and it is so nice to come home to this view every day and know it's ours (well month to month...)  Now the little cottage is getting ready to welcome another member of our family.  I've been organizing like crazy, getting rid of junk, putting everything in bins, and making poor Jake give up some of his space to fit little jr.  But Jake's been super patient and indulging my crazy spurts of home organization.  We are so excited and lucky to be here, we've been having fun planning the small little nursery.  So little cottage, you've been good to us.  Please make room for this growing family for another year.  Love, the Morses.

a "handy" video

It kinda hurts my hands...
(I wonder if it's the same couple from the McDonalds commercial...)
Maybe this is something I should take up in my spare time.
I mean I use my hands all day anyway.
Regardless, enjoy your Tuesday.
