Baby Merrick and I have been home for a little over a week now so I thought that I should post a few pictures. We haven't been up to much, just hanging out at home, a couple of ward Halloween parties and of course the Highland/Gilbert game. Needless to say, we've been adjusting and I'm just trying to figure out this whole mommy business :)


Here's Merrick and I the day we came home from the hospital. He is so small! His car seat pretty much drowns him, but he is growing into it nicely. I was so glad to finally get him out of the NICU and home with me! (Please try and ignore the fact that I still look 6 months pregnant...)


I love watching this little guy sleep! He is so sweet and makes the cutest noises. And he sleeps a ton so I get to do it a lot :) Look at that hair!!

We dressed Merrick up the other night to go to the ward party. He was adorable as a little pumpkin! I loved the little hat.

We keep trying to get Maddy and Merrick together in a picture. We have been unsuccessful thus far. Every time we get them close to each other Maddy mauls poor Baby Merrick! Maybe when they get a little older...

Oh my goodness, he is adorable. My favorite is the fifth one from the top (I think), the one of him in red in the car seat :) Congratulations!!

He's so cute!! LOVE the costume. And there's NO WAY is head is in the 90th percentile range... it's so tiny. What percentile is it really? Congrats on your little man. You look so happy :)

He is so itty bitty!!! I remember when Ryder came out and they put him on my chest it felt like someone laid an anvil on me he was SO heavy and only got heavier. He's never been easy to carry. You are lucky! You won't get back problems like me. HAHA! And I agree there's no way his head is that big, Dr's don't always know and they tend to suck at guessing. You look great. Your belly will go away.

Sharisa!! I didn't know you had a blog, I'm so glad I saw it on facebook. CONGRATS on the beautiful baby boy! I love all that blond hair. How are you feeling? Kalia was a c-section too, and it was a painful recovery, but that's awesome that you got to skip the labor part. I will send you an invite to my blog, if your email address still the same I hope? Congrats again. Your hair looks darling too.

I remember those first couple of weeks-they sucked. It was a huge adjustment. Hopefully it is already getting better, though! If not, it will soon! I was dissapointed after I had Tate and people were asking me when I was due...but whatever. I think you look great-I mean you just had a baby a couple of weeks ago! Enjoy.

Chris + Tatiana said...
