In my pre-baby days, I would have considered last night's sleep to be awful. I would've woken up and grumbled about how horrible I'd slept the night before. My feet would've been dragging all day and I would've felt like I needed to go to sleep at 7:00 just to catch up.

Post baby? In my post baby days, I'm praising the Lord that Will only woke up three times during the night (well, two if you consider the 7:00am wake up an appropriate time to get out of bed). I feel refreshed and have a whole different outlook on life. I actually feel like I got restful sleep, which is something that I have been seriously lacking this week. I actually feel good! Amazing what a difference a week and a few days can make on your outlook on life ;)

Will is doing great and I'm loving him more than ever! (Currently he's curled up on my chest making the cutest little snores...and today I actually appreciate it because I got sleep last night!) We have his two week check up with the pediatrician on Friday and I'm pretty sure he'll have gained some more weight back. Yay! Greg and I are starting to adjust to the whole 'parenting' thing too...we're both getting faster at baths and diaper changes. Last night we started a bedtime routine that seemed to make all the difference in Will's ability to sleep for more than 20 seconds at a time. We're both looking forward to getting out of the house this weekend to go to church on Easter Sunday. It will be nice :)

I don't want to go into the details of it on the blog, but if you could be praying for God to show Greg and I the direction he wants us to head in, that would be awesome. We're facing a tough decision and really feel like we need His hand in everything before we make a committment one way or the other. So prayers would be great right now.

And last, but certainly not least, we got our slideshow of pictures back from Will's newborn photography session. They are amazing!! I can't wait to get some printed huge for our walls.


  1. OH GREG AND LIBBY! He is SOOOO beautiful!

    Hi there! This is Greg's mom's friend, Tish. She is one happy granny! (Don't you dare tell her I called her a "granny"! I guess I'd better find out what Will's gonna call her to keep myself out of future hot water. LOL! Anyway... )

    Congratulations on your precious baby boy. That slide show makes me want to kiss his little self all over!! I hope I get to meet him some day soon.

    I'll definitely be praying for your guidance. Keep trusting, darlin's. God's got big plans for you! Otherwise he wouldn't have trusted you with such an wonderful little angel!

  2. Oh my God, that slide show is just so precious. The one with one eye closed made me laugh outloud. how adorable!!
