"You Can't Spoil a Newborn"


But can you spoil his mother? I have been so well taken care of for the past 11 days that I am starting to wonder! I would like to say a great big THANK YOU to everyone who has called, visited, brought dinner, given gifts, entertained kids, taken care of R.S. business, etc. etc, etc. I feel and see blessings being poured out upon us through you.


Here is my sweet Mom enjoying her fourth grandbaby. This was inbetween trips to the park, bathroom cleaning, dish washing, and reading stories with the kids.

My mother-in law just left without me being able to snap a photo of her with Nathan:( I guess I could take a shot of the full freezer, the sparkling tile floor, the empty hampers, the non-existent mending pile, the freshly baked banana bread, or the happy kids who are now playing with their Grandma toys. These are some of the ways she has shown us her love and support.

Maybe the best spoiling of all is this super snuggly, sleepy baby boy of mine! :)

You look so good after just having a new baby. (not fair) You looked really good at church today I know after 3 you just give up because you have no hands any more. Just call if you need anything

Thank goodness for Mom's and Mom in law's. That picture of Nathan on your chest is so precious, his expression. I'm so glad you've been spoiled, I hope it continues a little while longer. For sure, you deserve it! Sit back and enjoy.
