Owen Paul, just 4 days old. ❤
Owen and his mama, soaking up a little morning sun ...
Honestly, I'm a bit embarrassed to post this second picture, because I look really tired and disheveled, but you know what? I am tired and disheveled, lol! But also - and even moreso -just blissed out on baby love. This is the life, I tell you ... and I promise I'm not really as tired as I look.
Owen on his way to his first pediatric appointment ... not quite sure what to make of it!
So a little baby news ... Owen had a 2-day check in with the nurse practitioner ... and he did just great! He's back to his original birth weight (well, nearly - only off by 2 oz.) and everything checked out just fine. He only fussed a little during the exam ... and just a little more at the end because he was absolutely desperate to nurse. ;)
It's super hot where we are today (the start of a 3-day heatwave they tell me). How is the season getting along where you are? I hope you are all doing well ... I am so grateful for all your kind words and messages of love and encouragement ... what a treasure to look back on with Owen someday!
Enjoy the rest of your Thursday, my friends ... I will see you here again very soon!
