One Month


A lot of you have asked for Henry updates. Since it takes me on average 2 weeks to return a call or e-mail these days I figured I would do a post. This past weekend he turned one month old. I can't believe how fast time has flown by. It has been wonderful but it has also been hard. I am still trying to get used to the adjustments, especially extreme lack of sleep. Every moment has been amazing though...This picture features him in his first Ole Miss onsie, I don't blame him for being so upset...it is a tough life being a OM fan.
I had to include this picture because my best friend gave him the Rolling Stones onsie. Only those who know you so well could give such a perfect gift. Thanks Dew!
Also, several people have asked about Harry (dog). He appreciates it. I can report he has not been neglected...too much. I think when I moved my office out of the house it was a lot harder for him than the newest addition to the family.See the sign in the background of the picture above? I have been waiting for it and can now show you the last piece of the nursery. Post to come in the next few days...

He is just perfect, Marianne. Wonderful boy!

It is a hard life being an Ole Miss fan! My 2 year old just wants to know when it is his turn to cheer. :-(

Angie said...

He is PRECIOUS! I agree with you that motherhood is simultaneously the most wonderful and most challenging experience ever! Hang in there, the sleep gets better eventually!! Evie is already 6 months old- it flies by.

Katie @ Noodle and Boof said...

Oh my goodness! He is precious! Pretty lips and gorgeous head of hair!! P.S: Tell Henry that I'm proud of him for sticking with the rebels. It's even tougher to watch the games in person!

Thank you for the update. It IS hard but it will get easier. I promise you that (and the it gets harder all over again--I have a teenager!). Henry is a cutie.

Kerry said...

Glad to see an update!! Been wondering how you've been doing! The adjustments are hard, but so worth it. Our little Halle is already 2 months now! So hard to believe!! Enjoy every second! He is so adorable! xx

He is beautiful, Marianne! The first weeks are the hardest and sweetest all at the same time. Love those days!

I barely remember the early weeks anymore - such an exhausting and exciting time. I could just eat him up with a spoon. Too cute!! And I love Henry and Harry together. Precious.

blessings to you

I didn't know!! Time flew by. For us I guess. Congratulations. I have a 13 year old Henry. The love of my life. God bless you and your family. He is delicious!

He's so precious!

traci zeller designs said...

Oh, he is just beyond precious and adorable, Marianne! When they are little and you are so exhausted ... the days sometimes seem soooo long but somehow the months fly by. Happy One Month Birthday!

bluehydrangea said...

Marianne,
Henry is adorable!! And you look amazing!

JMW said...

Ah, what a cutie! Yes, the lack of sleep can be difficult, but it gets better. I once had a friend tell me, "The days can be long, but the years are short." Can't wait to see the nursery!

I'm so happy you posted these pictures! Henry is so adorable and yes, my friend, it's an amazing moment but it's also hard. As you know, I have two bigger kids and I'm expecting my 3rd (only 8 weeks to go!). This reminds me I should stop 'nesting" 24/7 and rest now, that I can.

Be strong and try to enjoy this... we miss seeing and carrying them this small.

Enjoy your day!
