One Week Old!

We can't quite believe it, but Connor is one week old today! It is hard to imagine that we still didn't know who was going to arrive in the world at this time last Wednesday -- he was still one hour away from entering the world! Now we can't imagine any other sweet boy but this one -- he was meant to be ours.

Sweet Daddy brought Connor a cake to celebrate the occasion, we took his one week old footprints, and moved into a big boy bed! It has already been such a big day, Aunt Steph and Aunt Jamie even called to sing us Happy One Week Birthday-- the little guy is tuckered out! It was so nice to think back on all the things that have changed since Connor arrived in the world -- he has lost his CPAP, IV, Phototherapy lights, Warmer Bed, and Lipids/Electrolytes. He is now able to be swaddled and wear big boy clothes! We are going to wait for his cues and start working on eating out of a bottle. As soon as he can master sucking/swallowing and breathing all at the same time -- we can bust him out of here! We are so blessed to have such a sweet little baby boy and we can't wait to celebrate Christmas with the little man tomorrow!

Connor's First Birthday Cake -- 1 week is a pretty big milestone!
Another new outfit and a new bed-- looking pretty cute!

Connor's first outfit -- borrowed from the hospital! He looks pretty handsome!
