Currently August Phoenix David

As of today Phoenix is one week old! Jordan and I didn’t know the exact date our baby boy would arrive, we did know we’d have a baby by August. And well, we’ve arrived to August with a healthy baby. Life is good.

Currently, here is what August looks like.

Hearting | All of the newborn snuggles and gurgles. I love the little noises Phoenix makes. I’m sure all mothers feel this way but the thought of him getting bigger makes me equally excited and nostalgic.

Watching | Jordan and I finished Stranger Things over the weekend. We’re watching reruns of Gilmore Girls and marathoning The West Wing though as of Friday it’ll be all things the Olympics!

Exploring | The only times we’ve left the house lately is to grab coffee or go to the doctor! I’m thinking this weekend we’ll venture to a restaurant with my parents. My body is feeling stronger everyday but I know it’s important to rest. I had major surgery!

Creating | Routines. Or something of the sort. HAHA. I’m using an app on my phone to track feedings. This has been helpful to make sure Phoenix is eating enough and to see his natural routine and rhythm take hold.

EatingΒ | Randomly and according to my cravings. Friends and family have been so kind to drop off meals so that Jordan and I can focus on baby. Breakfast has consisted of smoothies, eggs and bagels.

Linking with DanaΒ and Anne.

  1. My husband and I just finished The West Wing and now I’m not sure what to do with myself! Congrats on your baby boy he looks so sweet!! He’s making me baby hungry πŸ˜‰

  2. Oh my goodness he is just adorable and I looooove his name. Good luck with your recovery, I have my c-section tomorrow for my breech babe and so I’m so anxious to see how all of that unfolds. It gives me hope that you have left to get coffee haha.

  3. You win for best currently photo this time! So sweet. Love this “watching”… I’m finally doing Gilmore Girls for the first time and can’t stop watching. And we re-watched all of the West Wing right around the time Hendrik was born, so it has a special place in our hearts too πŸ™‚

  4. he’s so cute!! my cravings with nursing were so much strongly than when i was pregnant! also, rest, rest, rest. i decided to go to the mall on week two and severely regretted it. all of my pain came back/i couldn’t climb our stairs… and i ended up at the doctor’s office to seal my wound again! so be careful! just snuggle that little baby boy πŸ™‚ and have jordan bring you coffees!! xo
