Monthly Marshall Moments: One

Marshall was one month old on March 2nd. How can that be already?! I'm a little behind on my blogging. Ok, I'm a lot behind on pretty much everything, except for taking care of my sweet little boy. That's my new full time job and I love being his mommy! He keeps me busy.

Is he the cutest, or what? I plan on taking monthly photos of Marshall and documenting a little bit about his progress. Hopefully I can keep up! In one sense, the days and weeks are zooming by. Yet others, the days and nights feel long. 

• Gives lots of smiles
• Prefers a clean diaper (can't argue there!)
• Starting to enjoy bath time
• Likes to study faces
• LOVES to be held
• Sleeps better during the day (we're working on hopefully changing that)
• Very active with his arms and hands and likes to grab his face
• Doesn't really like to be swaddled, especially not with arms in 

I can't believe how much he's changing, right before our very eyes. At his one month Dr. visit he was up to 8lb 6oz (his birth weight was 7lb 2oz). He's growing every day! It's challenging to get a baby and me selfie. Our days look a lot like this - me holding, snuggling and feeding my little guy (and lots of diaper changes in between!). He really is such a good baby and a joy to take care of.

Marshall's Newborn Photos

After Marshall arrived, I was so excited to have his newborn photos taken. Bethany captured some beautiful and adorable moments of our sweet little guy when he was just 8 days old. She is so patient and skilled at posing newborns - she has some serious baby whispering talent. Wow. I just love looking at these photos and will cherish them forever!

I already feel like Marshall is changing before our very eyes and I want to savor every tiny detail of his precious little self, for as long as possible.

Doesn't he just make you melt? 

We took some family photos too. I especially love the one of Andrew holding Marshall. The two loves of my heart! Swoon.

Here are a few of my favorites. 

I just love the perfect smile on his face in this one! Such a cutie.

A big thank you to Bethany for capturing these sweet moments for our family. Check out our maternity photos here.
