bliss

baby bliss...waking up every 1, 2, 3, (maybe) 4 hours to feed rhett is tiring. but i also enjoy it. i really do smell him and cuddle him (most of the time) when the rest of the house is asleep. two nights ago he actually slept from 11:30 to 6:30. i am convinced it was because he wanted me to be able to make it to church. thank you, rhett. it was a gift to be back at church with our family and hear my husband's sweet testimony all about how much he loved me and US. life is bliss.

here's rhett at one month old. is he dyer or parker? you decide...



macrae spent the first 2 weeks of rhett's life sleeping less than me. poor boy, his life was a little off balance and he could not sleep. he seriously got out of bed over and over and cried on his floor begging to get out of his room. until finally, one night brandon put the crib matress on the floor and let him sleep there. now, he's back to taking a nap every day AND going to bed like a normal toddler. life is getting better for all of us. just a few pictures from brandon's birthday party.





if someone had told me 10 years ago how sweet (literally) my life would be today i would not have been able to imagine it could be true.
now i'm going to feed rhett and go to bed. i might be up every 2-3 hours tonight. but even if i am, life will still be good tomorrow.

Not sure which side he looks like, but I think he has Brandon's lips. He's a cutie!

Rhett is half Brandon half Andrew, or otherwise known as Brandrew.
