2 1/2 weeks old

Hello all. Here are some more pictures of our little mister. He's doing well and we're learning new things every day as parents. I haven't written anything here on our blog since the day I delivered Silas. It's been quite the 2 1/2 weeks. I am in love with our son. I am so thankful to God for the gift of his life. I am overwhelmed sometimes in realizing that I get to be his mommy. I've also been completely overwhelmed other times with the "what am I doing?" new mommy feelings. These first days have been intense! There is much to figure out with sleeping, nursing, weight gain, cries and just other regular mommy concerns. I have been enjoying it all and also dealing with sleep deprivation and hormones... ahh, the normal-ness of it all. Thank you so much for praying for us all. I read this again today and thought how it's true for me as well as for Elizabeth (John's mother whom this verse is written of in Luke 1:58): "Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown her great mercy, and they shared her joy." Thank you for sharing in our joy in receiving Silas into our family.
The pictures were all taken within the last week or so. My parents, Nana and Papa Wichmann visited us and met Silas. They also helped us greatly.

I am so happy that you get to be a mommy, and have your little guy to love on. He is adorable, I can't wait to see all the growing and changing he is going to do:)

If you want to make sure Silas is gaining good weight, you could always consider supplementation. I typically recommend a 20 oz Dr Pepper or some old school Jolt Cola. ; )
We rejoice in God's blessings and mercy shown to you. Your son is beautiful.

Hi Kristin!

You must be a busy mommy - you haven't posted since the beginning of this month. :)

Have a wonderful thanksgiving!

I keep kicking myself for not going out there to visit you guys!!
