Newborn Photos

Well, hello!

We're all still alive over here. But also still adjusting, to parenthood AND to living in a new city. As if figuring out our newborn wasn't enough, we've thrown a major move into the mix. Whew!

We moved from Memphis to Johnson City one week ago today and we're still not fully unpacked into our new place. Nope, probably not even 50% unpacked yet. 

As it turns out, our sweet little John Paul baby is a fussy one. We love him to pieces and can't get enough of his chubby cheeks and occasional coos and smiles, but if he's not being held or fed or entertained, he's gonna fuss. Bless him. So that leaves only one of us to do al the unpacking, And it's really more like unpacking AND purging. Store this, throw that away, donate that. After 3 years of living in our previous apartment, we seemed to have accumulated ALL THE THINGS. So in addition to being new parents and moving across Tennessee, we're also now in the middle of a giant spring cleaning of sorts. Oh, and John starts his new job in less than 2 weeks.

We

are

crazypants.

Anyway, all this to say, I've had my reasons for being away from the keys for a while. And I'll likely continue to be away a bit while we sort through this new chaotic (but lovely) adventure we're on. Sorry. Such is life!

HOWEVER! To make up for it, I give you these photos of our adorable baby boy. These were taken at 1 week and 3 days old. D'awwwwww!

We wavered back and forth a bit on whether we should hire a newborn photographer, but BOY am I glad we did! He's already grown so much since these were taken, so at this point I'm SO glad we decided to professionally capture his earlier itty bitty days. 















Pretty cute, right? :)

Anyway, I'll be popping back in again... eventually. Once this apartment doesn't look a hot mess! And once our precious little fussy pants is a little less fussy (love him!). And basically once life settles down a bit. Especially because I still have so much to say. Expect one last birth post and a nursing post and other rando things to come your way. But like I said... eventually.

XOXO 'til then!

  1. Oh my! Mr. John Paul is such a perfect little nugget. And good luck unpacking! I'm pretty sure we still have stuff in boxes from when we moved from St. Louis to Chicago.

    1. Thank you! It's true, whenever you move, you never unpack 100%. I'm hoping our next move (hopefully into a house!) will be our last one for a while.

  2. Eh, I don't know. I don't think things are quite crazy enough yet! ;) Wow! That is a lot, but I love the sweet photos! Good luck with all the crazy unpacking and sorting and getting settled and figuring out the new routines, not only of your sweet little guy (that I'm sure are constantly shifting) but also of a new city and place. Can't wait to hear more when you have the time!

    1. Thank you! It took us a month to unpack and settle, but I think we're finally in a good place. :) Once we get all our pictures on the walls, I'll have to post some pics of the new place.

  3. Beautiful pictures! You all look lovely. : ) And yes, you are more than a little bit nuts. Though I can imagine it probably gets frustrating with John Paul wanting to be held all the time, it is such a short part of his life, especially with little boys. Store away as much of his desire to be held and snuggled for the future, when he thinks it's gross or girly. And may those years take a long, long time to arrive!

    1. Glad you think we're nuts. :P And you're absolutely right. I need to savor these snuggles while he still enjoys them. :)

  4. WOW!! You have a lot going on!! Good luck with the unpacking/purging ... it is a big task!
    The photos of John Paul and with the both of you are soooo beautiful! I just love newborn photos and their legs/feet that they unconsciously cross like they're still in the womb. So precious!!! <3 He is adorable!!!
