Marshall Ryan.

Born 7/20 at 7:19pm.

6 pounds 4 ounces, 18.5 inches.  He is SO WEE.

Cute, right?

He’s totally not mine; with the exception of his skin getting a teeny bit darker now that he’s older, this baby is ALL Jethro.

Okay, so he’s nearly three weeks old now, but you guys know me – did you really think  I would post on time?  Turns out the whole “babies eat every two hours” and “you hardly have time to shower” adages are actually TRUE.  Well, they are if you have time management issues like I do.  These heifers that post immediately after giving birth and then blog in-between feedings and changings and such…God love ’em, they are nuts.  I adore y’all, but I need a nap more than I need to update y’all on the newest cute face Marshall’s making.  (And there are many.  I mean, LOOK AT HIM.)

There are even better pictures from Brandi Thompson (our wedding photographer!); he’s photos 25 through 28 in her Newborn sessions album on Facebook.  (Brandi is amazing, you should “like” her Facebook page to get updates and check out her blog, especially the What to Wear posts!)

Wearing a gift from the lovely Sarah.  It came with pants with frogs on the feet.


So they’ll be more blogging later, but right now all my excess energy is spent begrudgingly poking at my c-scar and figuring out what to watch on Amazon Instant Video on the Xbox.  (We’ve starting with a Dr. Who rewatch.  Gotta start the kid right…)

Take care moppets!  I’ll be back on Monday with a book review and then hopefully a real post.  Eventually.  If I can stop snuggling my tiny human long enough to type something.

Daddy prefers Eccleston over Tennant?  NO…is he MAD?

    Gorgeous Gorgeous gorgeous
    And also ecclestone? No! Tennant or more to the point Matt Smith as the Dr plus the brilliant Amy Pond. Well you did say you wanted to start the kid out right didn’t you?
