1st Day at Church

Yesterday was Brent's first day going to church. The doctor told us to wait 2 months but that was just way too long so we waited for a month. He looked so cute in his little church outfit. He did pretty well-slept the whole time. I can't complain about that. Church is such an important part of mine and Brandon's lives. We hope to teach Brent the same morals and beliefs as he grows up. Brent and I have already started reading scripture together. We are reading in the Book of Mormon right now. I read to him once or twice a day during feeding time. Right now we are in 2 Nephi 8. Feeding time is such good bonding time!

Okay, so this is my very first blog and I really don't know what I'm doing. Trial and error I guess. Since I am officially a "mommy" now I really want to have a way for people to keep track of our little growing family. Brent is now 3 weeks and 5 days old. Motherhood is a lot different than I thought. For some crazy reason I thought it was going to be easy. I mean, I babysat growing up all the time and was always around little was I wrong! I underestimated the difference between caring for a kid for a few hours and being completely responsible for another human being's existence. WOW! Nonetheless, I love being a mom even more than I thought I would and I feel so blessed to have such a beautiful, healthy baby boy in my life. Every day gets a little easier and feels a little more natural. Brent is sleeping right now in his bouncer in his crib. We found out he has acid reflux so he can't sleep laying flat on his back anymore...bless his tiny heart! Here is a picture of him. So precious!! He is so angelic while sleeping.
