Please forgive my lack of updates and posts. We are soaking up this little bundle and loving every second of it. Joseph, the kids, and I am so in love we can hardly see straight!
We're taking nothing for granted. How wonderful it is to be surrounded by this...
With as hard as I tried I could never have imagined this sweet little boy bringing so much joy back into my life. It's comforting to know I can have so much love in my heart for Seth and still grieve for Wyatt at the same time. It's been bittersweet to cuddle on Seth. There has not been one second where I've wished he were Wyatt instead of himself like I'd feared. But I've spent each second wishing Wyatt were here too. It makes me long even more to hold Wyatt as well and experience the joy of just holding his little body next to mine. It makes me sad to look at this picture and know there is a stuffed elephant in the place where I should have my 1 year old.
By the way, did you notice the shirt Wyatt's elephant is wearing? I made it the night before I went into labor with Seth...
Even with the my heart aching for Wyatt, I can't contain the joy Seth brought into my heart with his first cry. I swear this child is always being held. Joseph and I just can't bring ourselves to put him down. Even as I'm typing this Seth is snuggled up against my chest.
There is still more to post about Seth's birth and first hours of life. He's kept us all on our toes since he got here and I'm excited to share everything else God has done for our family over the last week... but for now, I have a hungry little boy that needs my attention. I hope these pictures tide you over until then!
