Phoenix Week Three

Phoenix, Week Three, 3/52

Phoenix has his first pediatrician appointment this week and he found out that he is almost 10 pounds, and 23 inches. He is in the 97th percentile for height! The doctor said he is going to be a tall boy!

This week he has been smiling more and more everyday! He is sleeping a little more in the night, and he absolutely loves when I sing or make funny noises.

Pace Gallery

Pace Gallery
Crystal Universe Exhibit
Palo Alto, California

For my birthday, Jason took me to Pace Gallery to see the Crystal Universe exhibit. It was amazing! It was our first little road trip with Phoenix, and I have to say that he is perfect in the car. I have a feeling we are going to have a happy traveler on our hands.

I turned twenty-eight yesterday, and I spent the day making funny faces at Phoenix, laughing with Jason, visiting the Pace Gallery in Palo Alto, and enjoying every second of all the little things that Jason did to make my birthday extra special. I'm the luckiest girl in the world.

Phoenix Week Two

Phoenix, Week Two, 2/52

This week has been full of late nights, laughs, and being overjoyed that a little someone slept long enough for us to watch The Walking Dead finale. It was a crazy one.

Also, tomorrow is my 28th birthday! We have made a few plans, but I know whatever we do will be memorable.

Phoenix Week One

Phoenix, Week One, 1/52

We are going to try to take a photo of Phoenix every Sunday in the same spot to see how much he's grown each week over the course of his first year. The teddy bear next to him was the first thing we ever bought him. I'm trying to savor every moment, because I know our baby will never be this small again.

Phoenix's First Easter

Today we are celebrating Easter and Phoenix's first week of being alive! This has been the most amazing time of our lives. We are exhausted, giddy, and over the moon to have him in our arms. I can't wait for all the wonderful adventures the three of us have ahead. 

Happy Easter, everybunny!

Perfect Stranger

Last night Jason and I were waiting in line to check out with this little newborn outfit at Target. We were laughing and joking around when the guy in front of us asked us about our baby-to-be. He then offered to pay for the onesie, which of course we were shocked but he insisted upon it. It was such a wonderful thing for someone to do, and it completely made our night. It has inspired me to pay it forward, so hey strangers out there you better be ready for something nice coming your way!

If you ever get the opportunity to do something nice and unexpected for a stranger, please act on it. You have no idea how much of a difference it can make in someone's day.
