3 Weeks

posted on: Wednesday, September 22, 2010

Beka has done it once again! She came over on Monday and took Káel's (pronounced like kale) 3 week old pics. He's quite the little model. He followed the camera with his eyes and looked quite interested in it! It was so cute! He loooooves his Auntie Rivka (aka Beka)! There's a link at the bottom of the post to Beka's blog post of all the pics!

Notice his oh so stylin' set of threads that he has on...Gilt group find!

The rug is from Urban Outfitters and that amazing mid-century retro dresser? Craig's list, only $120! It was originally a watermelon color but we boy-ified it with koi orange.

As far as my dreads are concerned, if you noticed... took a break. I have them in now. I just needed a breather after my labor and Samuel wanted to run his fingers through my hair again. (I actually pulled like 7 or 8 of them out during the 10 hours of my transition in labor, haha!) So, I'm still a dready momma, just had to go smooth for a few days. :) They drove me crazy during my labor. I actually wacked my doula in the face with them! They were bunched up like a doubled over pony-tail and wet from the labor tub...in the middle of a contraction, I slung my head and my dreads followed. Oopsie!

Káel is THE best baby! He only cries if he has a wet diaper, is super hungry or needs to be burped. Other than that, he is super happy, peaceful and very inquisitive! He sleeps GREAT, which is the grace of God on my little soul.

Sam is in love with our little man and it is the most precious thing to me to see. From the moment he guided our little dreamer out of me, it has been love at first sight. I'm head over heels in love with my little adventurer. I melt every time Káel looks at me, cooing and smiling.

Being a mommy is like nothing else.

  14. ACK!! I have the matching salt and pepper shakers to match your mushroom cookie jars! :D I opted for another antique store find, a nearly matching Owl cookie jar to go with them...but I stumbled across these jars on Ebay and an antique store in my area since then and wished I had bought them! Such a fun coincidence! :)
