A few weeks ago we traveled out to one of our favorite places to take some pictures with our little one. We wanted to make sure we got some pictures with him while he was still so little. The day ended up being beautiful, Connor cooperated perfectly, and my mom got some amazing pictures. It was hard to decide which ones to include so I included a lot!
We have a one month old! (Well actually a 6 week old but I’m a little late with this post)
This has probably been the craziest month and a half of my entire life! It has been exhausting, frustrating, and a serious learning curve. But at the same time, I love this little man more than I thought possible and that makes it all worth it.
At one month, Connor was 10 pounds 8 ounces.
Connor loves cuddling, staring at the ceiling fan, daddy’s silly songs, falling asleep in mommy’s arms, his rock ‘n play, laying on his activity mat, movement, singing, and riding in the car (sometimes).
He doesn’t love baths, his bouncy seat, being put in the car seat, or his bassinet.
Now to go cuddle with my baby boy on this rainy day.
Welcome to the world Connor Allan!
I have been meaning to write this post for weeks but the blog has come after taking care of my little man, eating, resting, and showering…but ya know…priorities, right?
Connor was born on September 20th at 8:35 pm. He is just over 5 weeks old.
We are so in love and enjoying the every day adventure of having a baby.
I’m definitely planning on doing more posts and hopefully getting in a monthly check in post. We are past 1 month, but that will be coming soon! Until then, you can follow me on instagram to see some super cute pictures!
So our September has been kind of crazy, with the first half filled with me being super pregnant and the second half filled with the birth of our amazing little boy. I intend to post more about our little Connor but I haven’t had much time. Until then, here are my photos from September.

News: I am feeling anxious not knowing when he will be coming but I feel like he is being stubborn, just like he has been for the rest of this pregnancy. I’m trying to rest and enjoy the last few days of being pregnant.
Our nursery took a lot longer to get together than I thought it would. We’ve had so many other things going on so we would just do a little here and there. But, I can finally say that our nursery is complete. And I love it!
I can’t wait to bring our baby boy home to his room!

News: Today we were out running errands and, within an hour, I was offered the handicap stall in a bathroom and told that I look adorable. So…I wasn’t sure how to take the first one. Do I really look that big? Either way, it is getting exhausting carrying this belly around. Hopefully I don’t get much bigger.
