Happy Wednesday, lovely people! Jack went for his first pediatrician’s visit yesterday and he has already grown half an inch and gained four ounces. This breastfeeding mama could not have been more proud! Nick’s mom drove us to the appointment since I’m still under driving restrictions, and on the way home I asked her to wait with Jack in the car while I ran into the grocery store to pick up a few things. It was my first time out amongst the general public since Jack was born and I felt like I had this big secret no one else knew. I wanted to tell everybody I saw, “The world has CHANGED, people! I’m a MOTHER now! This new little person has arrived in the world and he is AWESOME!” But, strangely enough, the rest of mankind seemed to be going about operating as if nothing had changed so I opted to keep this life-altering information to myself.
I jumped on the Instagram bandwagon last summer thanks to my friend Caz and used it to document most of my trip to visit my grandpa in Amarillo last August, but then when nobody else I knew seemed to have ever heard of it I got bored and the app sat unused on my iPhone for months. Now that it’s apparently all the rage I figure I might as well jump back on the train, especially since it’s such an easy way to take and share photos of my little man without having to fuss with an actual camera. You can follow me at charlottetryforos for copious amounts of cute baby pictures.
Here’s one I snapped of Nick and Jack last night, catching up on snuggle time after a long day at work.
And this one was taken only moments ago. Doesn’t he just look like a little pea in a pod? I could just die of the sweetness.
