Happy 1 Month Isaiah =)

Isaiah is officially a 1 month old. Where in the world did that month go?!?! In a lot of ways it feels like he's been here for so long. Who knew your life would change so much by such a little person.

This past month has been a wonderful life change. Isaiah went from being 9 pounds 10 ounces & 21 inches long at birth to now weighing in at 12 pounds 6 ounces and 22 inches long. He's our big growing boy and I love it. He's also doing more things. He's been holding up his head since birth (no joke). He's sucks on his hands (I've noticed this more this past week). He smiles (and its not just because he has gas-haha). He also follows you with his eyes which I love. I'm learning more about Isaiah everyday and were still adjusting to eachother. I'm also loving being at home with him. Our days are unpredictable. Some days we stay in and chill, other days we go out and visit with the grandparents which I love because then I can run out and do errands while they oohh and aww over Isaiah -haha.

Isaiah has brought a lot of joy and happiness to our lives and to our families lives as well. They can't seem to get enough of Isaiah which is so neat to see. My mom has been amazing at wanting to wash all of Isaiah's baby clothes, making meals and taking care of him whenever she's around. Were blessed to have so much help around.

I still remember the day when Isaiah made his entrance into this world. What a wonderful moment that was. We look forward to watching this little guy grow - but I don't want to rush this time. I love that he's still so small. Actually as I write this, I'm holding him and typing (I've learned to multi task with an infant). God has been good to us and we are so thankful for this amazing blessing and gift of life. Lord please continue to help us raise this child. We love him so much!

2 week old Isaiah

Its hard to believe that 2 weeks ago today Isaiah made an entrance into this world. I still remember that final push when he came out. What a moment that was for both Saj and I - as that marked the day that our lives changed forever.

Since having Isaiah enter into our world things have changed - but its been wonderful changes. Yes, we don't get as much sleep, but I do nap when he naps which has been so helpful. Feedings are going a lot better, and each day I just enjoy looking at him and watching him grow. Both Saj and I feel so blessed that we have him in our lives. I can't even imagine life without Isaiah. Thank you Lord for this amazing gift you have blessed us with.

He's Finally Here!

Wednesday September 29th, 2010 at 4:40pm life changed for Saj and I. We officially became parents to our son Isaiah Eli McKenley. What a moment that was when Saj looked at me and said - "ITS A BOY." I was so overjoyed, and in shock as well. We were so happy to finally meet him. We didn't find out the sex and wanted to be surprised. All along we were thinking it was a boy, but towards the tail end of my pregnancy I decided that I should change my thoughts just in case it was a girl. We were going to be happy either way. Its still so hard to believe that he's finally here.

Life has changed, but it has been a wonderful change. Each day Isaiah is getting more and more use to us. He's been feeding much better and resting too thankfully. Saj and I enjoy just looking at him and kissing him. He's so perfect to us and we are truly blessed to have him in our life. He's just made life that much sweeter :)
