Loving Our New Little Person to Love

It's hard to believe that a short week ago we met our little Jaden for the first time.
And yet it seems like he has been part of our family forever.
I am always amazed at the miracle of birth and the adjustments of having a newborn.
Even though there are days I feel tired beyond tired, my heart feels full beyond full.
I love every opportunity I have had to snuggle with our little man, to kiss his fuzzy little head.
And the rest of our family has felt the same. Not shortage of cuddles and hugs for this little babe.
We are having a hard time keeping his hair looking fresh and clean because of all the 'pets' he gets on his head throughout the day :) What a special thing to watch the bonds of siblings.

So far Jaden has been a pretty sleepy guy. Except for sometime in the middle of the night, when he finally finds that it's too quiet and has too look around for a bit :) Once again my girls have chosen to bless their mama with some extra sleep and after I feed him they take turns staying up to cuddle and settle him. And what a great job they do at it! Words cannot even express my gratitude towards their servants hearts. I only hope that someday I can repay them the favour :)

Here are some 1 week photos that Megan took of him today. (Did I mention that I love having a photographer living in our home?)

BEYOND PRECIOUS!!!! Oh I long to hold and cuddle that sweet little guy! Give him a (((hug))) and kiss xoxo from Auntie Laura

Oh, how sweet! I wish we lived close enough for us to hire Megan to take pictures of our children. It's hard to find a photographer that is comfortable around multiple children, and who doesn't charge a fortune. Reading about your girls snuggling Jaden and helping you out during the night brings tears to my eyes. It's such a great testimony to the wonderful mother that you are! I hope and pray that I will be in your shoes one day. :)
