Life with Calder: Weeks 2 & 3

Time has flown by, and I can't believe Calder will be three weeks tomorrow! She really has been such a wonderful baby and we are so thankful for every moment with her.

 She is so alert and her big blue eyes make me melt.

We love to play, sing songs, poop and pee, read books and have girl talk...

Bea still doesn't know what to think of Calder! It's been an adjustment not being the only baby in the house...

Her different faces and expressions crack me up...
SuSu left last Friday, and we definitely shed some tears over leaving each other. Mom was AMAZING and seeing her special bond with Calder was something I'll never forget. Calder's been an easy baby SO FAR (fingers crossed!) so I knew we could make it on our own, but it just tore her apart leaving Calder and the idea of living 5+ hours away is hard..
...BUT both of my parents are coming back in three weeks, so we can't spend too much time being sad. In the meantime, we send them lots of videos...

We've actually put on real clothes a few times to run errands around town...and getting out the door has a completely new meaning!

We love tolerate sponge baths...
 ...but it feels so good to be clean!

We've now discovered our hands, and I think we may have a thumb sucker on the way...
We love our long walks...

and cuddle time!

Saturday morning with Daddy was the BEST.

Seriously, PLEASE stop taking pictures of me mama!

That's it for now. Sorry for ALL of the pictures and the choppy random comments. I have very little time to articulate these days, so hopefully this will do for now. We sure do love this little one, and had idea how much joy and love our hearts were capable of feeling.

Life with Calder: Week 1

Wow. What a week this has been! There is so much to say and not enough time to say it. Or maybe I just can't find the words to express how FULL our hearts are right now.
One thing is for sure — God is sooo good.
“We prayed for this child and the Lord has granted us what we asked of Him.” 
– I Samuel 1:27

one proud papa!
The waiting room was full of family and friends anxiously waiting to meet our baby, and they were STILL unsure whether we had a boy or girl...
...and that ain't coffee!

Calder loves her Godfather Uncle Jake

Going home in style with my new boots from JuJu and Mack Daddy!
 already making new best friends with Lelia Otts...
my little bright eyes...

SuSu loves Calder and has been a huge help! I don't know what I'd do without such amazing parents and in-laws!!

daddy's little girl

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  
psalm 139:14
We love you Calder! More to come soon...

Balanced Beauty

I absolutely love interior designer Barbara Westbrook's charming cottage office featured in this months Atlanta Homes. It's so clean and refreshing. Wouldn't you love to work in this beautiful space? Here's what Atlanta Homes had to say about it:

The designer’s signature style is evident throughout the five-room office, from the contrast between its low, bright-white ceilings and stained wood floors and door frames to the commanding presence of oversize antiques, such as the Belgian secretary in the cozy entry hall. The heart of the home, though, is an open, collaborative work space with sleek white laminate surfaces running the length of the house, which allows Westbrook’s team of four to constantly interact.

This will probably be my last post for a while before meeting our precious baby. Words cannot describe how excited we are to start this new journey as a family! I will definitely keep you posted on everything...

Lots of love,
