Look What I Got!!!

Having a baby is so much can lose so many hours well-spent each day, just staring at your amazing newborn like I do, you get to put them in fun clothes that only last a few weeks to a month, and receive wonderful, homemade gifts from your friends! How awesome!!!! The above baby teething rings were made by my wonderful friend, Johanna! She is a great friend, mom, and sewer! I know Nathan will LOVE his adorable new rings in just another month! Check out Johanna's blog, Gracious Living 4 Moms to start crafting and saving money for your family!

And my husband came home from his job recently with this amazing present for our new baby. It was a gift from a co-worker that we both used to work with (and who he currently works with again). Thanks, Anna!!! She knitted this tunic herself and it is really amazing! I can't knit, and so I think I have a deep appreciation for those who can! It's beautiful!

Thank you friends! These are great trasures to me!

Looks Who's 6.....weeks!

We had party supplies.... We had a homemade banner:

And the "birthday" boy in his birthday hat:

And we even made him a cupcake and sang to him:

And Nathan snuggled with Daddy:

.....and why a birthday at 6 weeks old you ask? Well, I was thinking about how we just dont celebrate life enough. Life is filled with so many hardships and so many distractions, and we often forget that "life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans." We miss out on so many would-be joys in life because we get so busy. So, we took out a moment to rejoice over our son, and thank God for the 6 week old blessing that he is to us!!!! We love you little N!
