One Month

It’s been one exciting/exhausting month since Max was born. I’ve barely had time to shower but it’s so worth it. Here’s what he looks like today:

And here he is on the day he was born:

A glance at our pinterest-inspired nursery:

A gift from M~ he saved it from our gender reveal party to surprise me

The room was originally a gym (that was never used) so we covered up the workout mirror with these cool grass curtains from Ikea. Actually almost everything’s from Ikea: the curtains, the rug, the crib, and the dresser. Right now he sleeps with me…and I don’t mean in a bassinet next to the bed. I’ve heard it’s impossible to spoil a newborn and since he cries when I put him down in his own little bed I’ve let him stay and sleep with me. I love it for now but I’m not sure how long I’ll let it go on for. Apparently there are two camps of parenthood: co-sleeping or let the baby cry it out in their own bed. I’m not sure which I’m in, but the other day I let him cry it out for a nap and he wasn’t the only one crying after a few minutes. And to end on a positive note, here are the best parts of being a new mommy: listening to his squeals, coos and other little noises, cuddles, watching him sleep, hearing his sighs, tickling his feet and snuggling up.
