Meeting Grandma LaVerne and Aunt Mindy

Garrett met his Grandma LaVerne and Aunt Mindy this past weekend. They gave Justin and me a break for a few days by cooking us dinner and tending to the baby. It was wonderful having them here.
Aunt Mindy bought Garrett "Finding Nemo" to add to his growing Disney movie collection
Between the two of them, I think he was in some one's arms all weekend long
He loves his Aunt Mi-Mi
I think he enjoyed staring at the new faces and hearing different voices

Garrett - Week 2

Tomorrow our little man will be 2 weeks old. Justin and I were saying today it seems like he's always been here.

This is what he does best...sleep and sleep

Garrett's First Week Home

Justin and I have been adjusting to life as a new daddy and mommy. I have never been so tired and worried yet so happy and in love.
He loves to be swaddled at night while he sleeps
