Well, hello. Anybody out there? (1&2/52)

What can I say... 
Life gets busy and changes and you change and get busy...and... I had a baby!
The most wonderful, crazy, amazing, scary, fun experience of my life.  

To try to prompt myself back into blogging I thought I'd start with the 52 week project...  
One picture a week (of a particular subject, can you guess what mine will be??  haha) for 52 weeks.  
I am obviously already behind since today is January 9th but... I'll post 2 (ok 3) to make up for it.  

The first two don't really follow the idea of the 52 week project, as I think it's meant to show how something (in most cases a child) grows/changes over the year, but I wanted to have a starting point.   
 ***********************************************************
My little guy was born early (31.5 weeks) and only weighed 2lbs 12oz.   
This is us just minutes after he was born, back in May!


Here he is getting his nightly weigh in at the hospital (where he spent 5+ weeks finishing cooking!)...  I thought he was so big at 3lbs 7oz!!  hahaha



Here he is yesterday being ridiculously adorable and shopping with Nana.  This is actually the first time he has sat in the cart, I usually just take the whole carseat with me, but his Nana (my mother-in-law, who watches him for us) didn't feel like lugging the whole thing in for a quick trip.   
He looks so grown up (for an almost 8 month old)!!


So... that's what I've been doing since I blogged last!
Growing, birthing, and taking care of a baby.   
He's changed my life in so many ways I couldn't even begin to explain them.  
Just think of every cliche out there about babies, and they pretty much all apply. 

P.S.  I have still been reading blogs, and trying to comment when I get a chance!  
I realized after previewing this post I need to do some updating to my blog, particularly my "About Me", my buttons, other people's buttons, and my Link Love page!  *sigh*  Maybe one of these days...
Happy New Year to you all!

What a cute little bugger! He may have started small, but he's such a nice, big fella now!
