Life as a New Mom

No matter what people said before my baby arrived, I did not understand the joys and difficulties I would face as a mom. I am constantly surprised by the amount of love Chris and I have for the little guy; but equally surprised at how hard it has been. I often wonder...Will I ever be able to sleep again? I am always worried about him, and want to just snuggle him all day long!



Madison and Tanner just love Brighton and always want to play with him. This is his first ride on a John Deer


Everydat Brighton has tummy time and plays in his Bumbo seat. He is so strong already!


This was Brighton's first bottle. He had no trouble taking it. Once he had two in one day. That night ha didn't want to eat regularly. I think he figured out the bottle is easier.


He always loves bath time and smells so good afterwards

Brighton is sooo adorable, I can't believe he is growing up and I haven't seen him in soo long! Hang in there, the Lord willcontinue to bless you with the patience and perservence that you need, and you obviously know that it is all worth it! He does look a lot like his daddy, but he reminds me of little you too!
