He’s HERE!

We’ve been in newborn baby bliss for almost two weeks! Time really is flying…taking care of the cutest little addict around, pooping himself and puking all over us, has just been the best. Sometimes really tiring, but little Arren Yuki knows he owns our hearts and we will just do anything for him.  Like never putting him in the bassinet because he just hates it so much.  I never in my wildest dreams thought a bassinet would bring someone such unhappiness, you would think its made out rusty nails or something? Its not, its all comfy and wonderful, but being held in mommy’s bony arms all day is just way better.  I’m enjoying this time being confined to the bed or couch, being taken hostage by the cutest little heart thief around.  He only needs me for such a short amount of time, so I’m just trying to soak in all this newborn baby goodness, while I can.

During this pregnancy and now postpartum I’ve realised that people just generally suck.  People tend not to listen to how you want to raise your child, and feeling disrespected all the time is apparently just the norm.  Carl and I both feel like no one cares to listen what we’ve  said and have felt a little to a lot disrespected.  I think its mostly just the fact that no one actually listens anymore and people make up versions of reality in their head that suits their tastes (that makes them feel better).  Our little family means everything to us and we just want to give Arren all the opportunities we never received.   I want Arren to live a happy life knowing he can be whoever or whatever he wants to be.  He can love who ever he wants without me judging him, and knowing I will always listen completely to what he has to say, I never want him to feel like he can’t talk to me about his worries.  I will never tell him to do what I say not what I do, I wan’t him to see the good and learn from that.  This little monster has filled my heart with so much joy.

Sometimes you just have to take the reigns of your own life and do what you think is best for your family.  Carl and I both discuss everything in great detail and weigh all our options before we make decisions.  It feels good to be with an intelligent, strong minded man that voices his thoughts and researches everything like crazy.  Hes already such a good father to our son and the fact that hes been such a big part of this pregnancy ;never missing an appointment and being so proud of little Arren already is just a joy to watch.  I can’t wait to see the man our little baby becomes with such a lovely dad showing him the ropes and I can’t wait to see Carl grow more and more in his father role.

Here’s like a million more photos of Arren, if you follow me on Instagram you might have seen some of them there.

^^ Hes always just staring at things.

^^ Making cute faces.

^^ Or being utterly serious.

^^ Sometimes he just wonders. what the hell is mommy doing.

^^ Or he thinks hes home alone.

^^ This was when he was 2 – 3 days old, check out my beautiful knotted hair, thanks to sleep deprivation and not being able to take a bath.

^^ Gas never looked so cute.

^^ 1 day old and I was already rocking the hair knot.

      Thanks! We’re just loving him. I’m finally starting to feel like a normal person again. Its surprising how having little sleep can make you so miserable! I definitely need sleep to be a better mother.

    Oh he’s just beautiful <3 Congratulations on your new little family!

    My little one hated the bassinet as well! She ended up sleeping with us until we introduced her to her crib at 3 months.

    And I totally know how you feel about being disrespected when it comes to other people doing what they want in regards to YOUR child. Trust me, it'll go on for a while. My daughter is 7 1/2 months now and its something we're still struggling with. But just keep doing you. You guys know what's best for your baby 🙂

      Thank you!

      How did it go after 3 months? We’re bed sharing right now, because its the only time he sleeps and he allows us to sleep. I feel like hes going to be in bed with us until hes 18 at this rate, hahah, but I do love having my baby close.

    He’s so sweet! So many facial expressions already haha. Love these! You guys keep doing what you think is best and he will turn out wonderfully 🙂

      Hes such an expressive little guy! Hes already so vocal, he just keeps making the cutest little sounds. We think hes going to be a narcissist, because we keep singing him songs with his name in it. His first words will probably be Arren Yuki and I’m so beautiful.
