Autumn in Kirkwood

While I officially now claim Texas as my home, I am still a Midwest girl at heart. Here are a few pictures of why I love my hometown of Kirkwood, MO during Fall.

Birth Story on Mommypotamus

There are very few blogs that I actually read consistently. Mommypotamus is one of them. Heather is a woman who lives in the DFW area and shares tips on how she strives to lead an all natural lifestyle with her family. She has yummy recipes for busy moms, stories about breastfeeding, pregnancy, home birth, and other things I'm interested in.

Right now she is encouraging her readers to share their birth stories, so I linked Denver's birth story to her page. Feel free to check it out, as well as other birth stories.

6 Weeks

I have been neglecting the blog. I apologize.

Denver is growing and changing so much. He's about 12 lbs. (I'll have a more accurate weight when he goes in for a check-up next week). He's also a very tall boy... some people have described him as lanky.

He is losing his hair, but only in the front, so he now has a receding hairline. I fondly refer to him as my Benjamin Button baby.

Here are the most recent pictures... enjoy!

Denver can smile!

As Denver gets close to being one month old, I thought I would update everyone on how our family is growing and changing...

Denver loves...
  • taking baths
  • being outside
  • staring out the window
  • going to the bathroom at the exact moment that I'm changing his diaper
  • driving in the car
  • going on walks
  • swinging in his baby swing that our friends Ryan and Brandi let us borrow. THANK YOU!!
Denver does not love...
  • getting out of the bath and drying off
  • hiccups

Mama loves...
  • when Denver stretches out his arms and legs as he's waking up
  • watching Denver cuddle with his daddy
  • going on walks around the block in this beautiful Fall weather
  • kissing Denver all over his face

Mama does not love...
  • when Denver decides to throw a party in the middle of the night and is up for hours at a time
  • when we walk away from the changing table with a clean diaper and Denver immediately fills up his new diaper

Daddy loves...
  • when Denver sneezes
  • getting excited about Denver and Fable being partners in crime someday
  • cuddling with Denver
Daddy does not love...
  • changing diapers
