we are enjoying a cozy snow day here in charlotte- full of baby snuggles. there is a fresh coat of snow on the ground and ice on the roads so we are staying put at home. my mom {an absolute godsend this week} has homemade chili soup on the stove and we plan to watch a movie tonight. i am recovering more and more each day and am feeling so much better regarding my c-section recovery. baby seems to be calm, happy, and has adjusted to eating {the beginning of the week was rough- esp. at night- to say the least} knowing he's happy now- makes me beyond happy. a huge thank you for all of the baby love regarding welcoming parks james into the world- it means so much to us. every one of your comments, messages, and emails were so special and appreciated. 
this will be baby based- as i am one week into motherhood and am over the moon in love. 

thinking | i could not be more lucky for all of the encouraging and supportive people in my life. it's been so touching to see {and makes me emotional every time i think about it} countless love from so many people- and my heart is so grateful.

pondering | can life get any better?

needing | a little bit more sleep but i don't mind waking up with him at night... if he needs something, it doesn't bother me to conquer my fatigue.

listening | tift merritt and norah jones are simply perfect for a snowy winter day.

dreaming | about being able to move freely without pain- i know it's so soon. trying to tell myself to savor each moment with him and that it won't last much longer.

swooning | i find myself just staring at him for hours... i am just so in love with every little bit of him. i love to play with his black hair, stare at those little lips, and touch his baby soft skin.

  3. Oh that first picture just melts me! Have an amazing snow day and I hope you continue to recover well. There is just something so surreal about those first few weeks... The pain, exhaustion, pure love and adoration.
