5 Weeks Old!

Today Grant is 5 weeks old. In one instance in seems like the time has flown, but in the next, it seems like an eternity. I can hardly believe I was pregnant just 5 weeks ago.

Motherhood is hard, but so rewarding as we are now getting smiles and grins. My days are now scheduled by feedings and naps instead of meetings and phone calls. This is something we had prayed for and longed for for so long, and now we're here.

I can hardly believe Christmas is just 10 days away. Sadly, I haven't been able to get in the full spirit with all that we've got going on and for the sleep deprivation. I love to bake, especially at Christmas, but this year, a nap takes priority.

We are very, very grateful this holiday season for this sweet little guy. A year ago this Christmas, I was in the depths of depression and never in my wildest dreams believed this year I would give birth to a son. That dream seemed impossible.

We love you sweet baby!

Happy five weeks Grant! You are such a cutie! Becca - isn't it crazy to think that we have our little blessings with us this year? I have to agree with you - last Christmas I was in a very low point and then this year I am feeling so blessed. It's amazing what a year can bring and I'm so happy you get to experience this too ((Hugs))
