"For the Lord God is a sun and shield; He bestows favor and honor; no good thing does He withhold
from those whose walk is blameless."

Our Sweet Little Man

Words can't describe how much Craig and I love our little man! We feel so blessed to have such a beautiful, sweet baby boy! Hutton is 7 weeks old today and growing so fast! Not sure how much he weighs, but I'm guesstimating around 12lbs. He's a pretty big boy...Just like his daddy! Overall, he's a GREAT baby! The last few days he's been a bit fussy which is pretty abnormal. The nurse seems to think it's a belly ache! Other than that, he's sleeping about 4-5 hours a night between feedings which is great for mommy, considering he was eating ever 2 1/2 hours!

He had three very special visitors this month! Grandma Brenda came all the way from Amarillo, TX and stayed a whole week! He LOVES his grandma and misses her oh so very much!! She was very helpful and gave mommy and daddy opportunities to go on a couple dates!! Then, my one of my very best friends, Jennifer Ladd, and her mom Vicki drove from Knoxville, TN to meet Hutton and stay for the weekend! We had an absolute blast!

We have an upcoming family vacation down in the gulf where he'll get to spend time with his Nana and his three aunts and Uncle D. It will be Hutton's first official beach trip! I'll post pictures when we return! Here are some to enjoy in the mean time!

It's already been a month? Seriously??

It seems that time is already flying by here in the Howard home. Hutton turned one month old yesterday!! Everyone keeps telling us to enjoy this time while we can because they grow up so fast. We are finding that to be extremely true! Hutton did great sleeping this week. On average he is sleeping 4 to 5 hours each night between feedings! I couldn't believe it! To top it off, last night he slept for a solid 6 HOURS!! Talk about amazing!

Today Hutton and I went to visit our friends for a "Mummie's Day Out" as my British friend Annalise labeled it! It was a blast! The following babies were in attendance: Anna Grace, Aliza, Caleb, McKray, and Emma! We are going to be meeting every Friday, kind of like a mommy support group with some of my best girl friends here in Memphis. It was so much fun and Hutton loved playing with his buddies!

Tonight we took Hutton for his first swim. Since he loves taking a bath, we knew he would love our pool out back, as it feels like bath water! Here are some pictures of his first swimming experience!

Now here are just some random pictures of the sweet little boy so you all can see just how cute he is! I love my little Hutton!!
