Speaking of time flying by, I can't believe it's been almost a month since he was born and I have yet to finish writing my birth story. Well, technically I wrote it long ago, but I haven't dropped the pictures in the post yet and finished a few parts of it. So I plan to do that this week and finally share how he made his grand entrance into the world. :)
This last week I finally finished thank-you notes and got his birth announcements in the mail. I decided to use the wrap-around label idea from Martha Stewart...and why I thought that'd be a good idea to attempt with a newborn who
must likes to be held 23.5 hours of the day...well, I'm not sure that was the most genius plan. :) They're easy enough, just took a little time to cut them up and glue them on...twice. Yes, twice. The kind of glue I used the first go around didn't quite get the job done, so when I went to mail them I realized about half of the labels were falling off...aack!! Needless to say, they are in the mail now and let's just hope they all arrive safely at their destination. Lesson learned in using the appropriate glue...be patient if you don't have it on hand Sarah, because the junk you try to substitute will just cause more problems in the long run. :)
Moving right along...a few pictures from our week!
And finally, I absolutely LOVE these pictures of him holding on to his little pacifier buddy. I think it's so cute how in the picture at the top he's got a death-grip on it. :) This thing is genius! It's great because E is getting big enough now that if his paci comes out in the car, he kind of roots around for it, and the monkey keeps it near enough that he's able to get it back in his mouth (sometimes). On the other hand, it also makes me sad that he is getting big enough to do that though. :)
