Still Here

The babe is nearly three weeks old already. I am in denial. I am feeling obligated to work steadily; to keep up on the housework, the cooking, the laundry... but all I want to do is sit and stare at him. I know how quickly these weeks disappear. He still has all those newborn mannerisms--the fluttering of the eyelids, the phantom sucking in his sleep, the squinched up faces--I am head over heels in love.

Hope to be back soon with some more photos to send your way...that is, if I can stop snuggling with him long enough to actually take some!


  1. And I still am madly in love with his name!!

  2. I am SO the same! All I want to do is stare at Asher as well. I love those newborn mannerisms, even the goat-grunting all night long :)

  3. Sweet, sweet Ari! I am missing him, and all of you. I will be so eager to see you sometime soon after our return (Oct. 6).
    In the meantime, snuggle for me, too, please.
    Nana <3

  4. Ahhh... that brings back sweet memories! What a blessing little Ari already is and it is wonderful to rejoice with you and your family. Thanks for sharing and I am holding you all in my thoughts, prayers and heart....

  5. Yay!! So glad to hear how things are anxious to meet Ari and hug you sometime soon. Happy you are treasuring the time, it is so SO special.
