Joshua's First Week

My little guy is already 11 days old! We are doing really well. This has by far been my easiest post-partum recovery. I'm a little tired, but other than that, I'm feeling fabulous. Joshua is nursing like a champ and has already passed his birth weight (he was 9lbs., 5oz. yesterday when my midwife came). My mom went home on Thursday, but I haven't had a full day by myself with all three kiddos by myself yet. I think life is going to be a little crazy for a bit with these three, but I wouldn't have it any other way! God has blessed us tremendously.

One hour old, getting checked out by my midwife

7 hours old, snuggling with mama
Meeting their new brother. I love these people more than I can say. 

Meeting Grandpa
Our little (not quite so little anymore?) family with my mom and dad
First outing--Mommy needed to go to the chiropractor

My cup runneth over. And so does my back seat. ;)
My life's work <3


  1. What a beautiful family! And they are so blessed to have you as their Mama. Congratulations!

  2. What a handsome addition. Such a cutie.

  3. How lovely, Mary Jo! Praise the Lord everything is going so well. :)

    1. Yes, indeed! He has been so incredibly gracious.

  4. How are the older ones doing with the arrival of the new baby? My sister is having another and my nephew (he's 2 1/2 now) is VERY excited.. but I wonder sometimes if the excitement will last when the new baby gets here!

    1. They have their moments, but I think overall they're adjusting pretty well. I'm sure it's hard for them having to share so much of my time with Joshua!

  5. What a big baby! Reminds me of my daughter's size when she was born. And soo cute for a newborn! They're not supposed to come out that handsome! haha. Your other children are so cute too! I enjoyed looking at these photos. I am a SAHM of a 5 year old girl and I am currently in my 14th week of pregnancy with "Number Two." Congratulations!
