And then there were 5...well, kinda...

You'd think that I'd be plastering this computer with pictures of my sweet one, wouldn't you?  Well, not possible.  You see, my camera is in Nebraska.  Lovely.  So, if any of you out there in blog land have pictures of my baby that you can send me, I'd appreciate it.  :)  I will try to copy and paste some from facebook that my parents have uploaded.

So, we are a family of 5 now, though it doesn't really seem like it with Daddy away.  Life this past week has been good, though extremely tiring.  I feel like I fairly float through each day.  By the end of the day, I just want to crash.  At the same time, I know that it will be a short nap before I have to wake up to feed, so it is sometimes hard to make myself go to bed thinking of the next time that I'll have to get up.

My good friend and I were due within 5-1/2 weeks of each other.  She has a 3-y-o, a 19-m-o, and an almost 7-week-old.  During our pregnancies, we were both praying for contented, laid-back babies for both of us.  I cannot speak for her as of late,  ;)  but I can say that I believe that God has blessed me with just that.  Keaton has the BEST disposition.  He does not cry unless he is hungry and then it is a very slow progression from talking at me to fussing to crying.  He just does not get mad.  He sleeps great for a newborn.  He's getting up every 2 to 2-1/2 hours, sure, but he falls right back asleep after being fed and changed.  He is just a sweet little man and has stolen all of our hearts.

I will leave you with this picture.  It is our first family picture as a family of 5.  It is from the day after delivery.  Cassie and Conrey had been outside, so ignore their crazy hair.  I had just delivered a baby the day before, so ignore mine too.  :)

Also, I want to show you this side-by-side of Conrey in the hospital and Keaton to see if you see the similarities that everyone else has seen. 

First is Conrey and then Keaton.  What do you think?
Well, that's all for now.  The kids are driving me bonkers about wanting dessert from lunch.  Well, not Keaton...he's sleeping peacefully in his swing.

Had I mentioned anywhere that I think they look alike? They sure do, to me. Congrats and glad you've still got that "floating" on a cloud feeling :) Hang in there and I'm sure you're doing a fantastic job as a Momma to THREE!!!
