Toby is 1 month!!!!

As of 2 days ago, our precious, newest, little bundle is already 1 month old!!!!!!! I can't even believe it! I think time goes faster with every baby. Mr. T is SUCH a sweet baby boy!! His favorite place to cuddle is right up in your neck (which I believe God made just for that purpose!). He'll just cuddle up in there, eyes open, and just hang out. I love it so much. He is getting bigger and his creases are getting deeper by the day. NOTHING like Micah's rolls.........I mean, we had to give Micah mid-day wipe downs. Whew!

This picture looks a lot like one of Micah's pictures. And look at those fingers!

Toby had his days and nights mixed up for a little while. He still is more awake in the evening than in the day, which doesn't surprise me since that is exactly what he did when I was pregnant with him. When he gets sleepy, we just wrap him up like a burrito, let him suck on his paci if he wants it, and just hold him. He just looks around, then he finally tries to fight sleep for a little bit, and he's out. That is until we lay him down in his pack and play. This child knows when he is NOT being held. :) Love him, love him, love him!!!!

Carter and Micah are adjusting very well. They are such good makes it very easy for me to take care of Toby. I don't feel like I have to entertain at the same time that I'm feeding him. Carter and Micah just take off upstairs (this is after Micah kisses and hugs Toby.......Carter just looks at him to see if his eyes are open). They play cars, run down the hallway and jump down the 2 stairs leading to our "cozy" room, or there have been times when I have found Micah dressed in bows and high heels. Oh my stars....... One night, I took all of Micah's bows out of his hair to take a bath. When he got out, he wanted to put them all back in. At that point, I told him "nope. We're done with bows for tonight. Plus, bows are for girls." He then starts crying and saying "I AM a girl, mama!!" aaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnddd, that's when Les walked in. Nice.

Carter caught in action....taking after what Sarah would do to Cicker

She was so proud!

I wonder if this is Tom James approved??
Bottom line...........we are LOVING our party of 5!!


  1. Em, I saw Les walking Micah and Carter out to the car on Sunday. They were so cute holding hands. And Carter had her long beads on. Your family is the epitome of adorableness!

  2. I LOVE IT! Noah did the snuggle up to the neck thing from the moment he came out!! And he STILL does it!! Snugglers are THE BEST!!! I cannot believe how much Toby looks like Micah as a baby!! It's crazy!!! makes me wonder if we have a 3rd if he/she will look like Eli or Noah?!!! Anyways...I love your blog updates...they are SO funny!! What did Les say when he heard Micah say that??? LOVE YOU LOVE YOU LOVE YOUUUUU!!!!!!!!!
