Tyson's Firsts

Tomorrow our little Tyson will be 1 month old. Time sure flies when you're not sleeping. I've frequently found myself asking what today's date is. This past month has been filled with a lot of love from family and friends as well as a lot of FIRSTS for Tyson.
His first doctor's appointment came at one week old. It was a rainy Monday morning, so we had him bundled up, probably too much...lol!. It was different having to get someone else ready in the morning and get out of the house on time. That's something that will get better with time hopefully. As you can see by Nick's pic, its NEVER a bad time to take a nap...even if it is at the doctor's office...LOL!!

Nick and I gave him his first bath about a week ago and although we found delight in this special bonding time, Tyson wasn't too happy about it, to say the least.

We've had a host of visitors to come and greet Tyson. His first out of town guests came two weeks ago. My godson Jacob and my best friend Mindi came from Huntsville for the day to hang out with us. Jacob wasn't too intrigued by Tyson at first, but when we put him in his lap for a photo opp, Jacob looked like he was wondering why this "doll" was moving around.

I'm sure the next month will not be short on firsts, and Nick and I are looking forward to each and every one of them. Hopefully we won't be sleep and miss anything....

Week 2...In the books

Today, little Tyson turned 2 weeks old. As Nick and I assess the damage, it looks as though the bags under our eyes are the only battle scars we have to show. I tell ya...this sleep deprivation is serious business. Everyone has assured us that it will get better in the next couple of months...COUPLE OF MONTHS...WHAT??? Are you serious???

Nick heads back to work tomorrow and we're not looking forward to that. It has been great having the 3 of us at home together. Thank God my mother is on vacation this week. She'll be here to assist me during the day, until Nick gets home. And I can't say enough about my girlfriends from my dinner club, BTC. They actually set up a dinner train in which one of them brings us dinner every other night for two weeks. Talk about GOOD EATS. Thanks ladies. Today was the first day where I've actually had to cook. Nothing fancy though...spaghetti and meat sauce.

Well, its about 8pm and I need to take a power nap in preparation for tonight. Can't wait to see what this week in parenting brings. Whatever it is...I'll be sure to keep you posted.

It is with great pleasure and delight that Nick and I introduce to you, none other than, the one and only...TYSON ALEXANDER JONES. Weighing in at 7lbs 9oz, Master Tyson entered this world on Sunday, March 29, 2009 at 6:14pm. We are so overwhelmed with feelings of joy, excitement, anticipation, and SLEEPLESSNESS...LOL!!! Thank you all for the well wishes and helping hands. I have included some pics from his first couple of days.
