Babies and hats

Why is it so fun to put hats on babies? I, along with several of my friends, enjoy purchasing all sorts of head coverings for our little ones. They're so darn cute! (the babies aren't so bad either...) Here's us before our walk last night. It was a little more chilly than normal outside, so OF COURSE, we had to bundle up and wear a hat. =D Henry also wore a hat on Sunday, which was part of the super-cute sailor outfit Myrna got him. AHOY!
In case you've forgotten what his head looks like, I've added another picture. Please notice head to dad's hand ratio. Geesh!
Because I love posting pictures and to make an even mom/dad showing, here's one with Jim and Henry. Awwww. I wonder if Henry's eyes will be as bright blue as Jim's someday?? I'm wondering when I will actually have some stories or bright ideas to post again... For now, this is what you get!!!

Stupid formatting.

This pic is a couple weeks old but I just love it. I just want to squeeze him silly, he's so cute! Wouldn't it be nice if we adults could nap like this more often?

I promise some newer pics in the next couple of days! Posted by Picasa

Henry is always flailing his arms about, making him look like a rapper. Yo, yo, yo! It's quite funny. Also, notice how loooong his arms are. Someone is going to be tall like his dad!
Here is our first family pic since the day Henry arrived...

Could I be any cuter?

I think not.

Time flies!

Our baby boy is four weeks old today! Good grief! Didn't I just give birth to him? I can see why people keep saying to enjoy this and that while he is this little. So precious, so little...but growing every day. I am love, love, loving being a mommy and watching Jim be a daddy.

My mother, proud new grandma, has been here visiting for a week now and we are just having a blast taking Henry all over town. He is very well behaved when we're out and about. Must mean he likes to shop! Ha. Grandma Johnson is having so much fun with Henry - playing patty cake (yes, already) and putting him to sleep faster than you can say "shhh." She's got the touch, I guess!

Seems to enjoy "patty cake," no?

We just love our little boy!

On our way to Sarah's birthday party!

Seriously though...could he be any cuter?

Henry James Marr

Well, I have to say I have never been more overjoyed or thankful than I am these days. Today, our precious baby boy turns 2 weeks old, and life has been nothing but perfection since his birth. Sure, there are fussy times and dirty diapers...but it is all so worth it to hold this little creation in your arms. Praise the Lord for His healing and faithfulness! The tears of joy have not stopped since I first saw his face.

We love you, little Henry James. We have waited for you and loved you even before you were made.

And a huge shout out to Jim, the most incredible husband and adorable daddy. Thank you for taking such good care of me and our little guy. I can't wait to see him grow up and follow in your footsteps.

Here is my favorite pic so far of Henry. This was the day he was born and we were forever smitten. Ah, parenthood...

Thank you Jesus for this little treasure!
