i need a word
a brand new word
nobody ever heard
i need a word
that can express
you are the dearest
on the earth

{poem by monique and hans hagen}



parker's latest:
+ 9 lbs. 8 1/2 oz.
+ smiling at mama while breastfeeding... sweetest thing ever
+ sounds a bit like an eagle swooping down for a mouse when crying, noted by auntie kate
+ likes being in the carrier, sleepin' on people, dad singing george strait while rocking, and bath time
+ doesn't so much like being put down
+ looks like dad, says everyone.  mom's still pulling that you've got her genes in there somewhere.

quote found here

and one more, just for fun.

  17. It's true, Bridget. You & me, Babe. We've got a good thing going.

    You're hosting a book club and you're a new Mama? (Well, a long-time Mama, new baby Mama... you know what I mean.) Now I feel like a total slacker. :)

    I would love to come but September is filled with baby showers for my sis, and parental visits.

    I am honored that you asked though. Blush... And I intend to meet that darling baby of yours soon!

    ReplyDelete
  18. one month?! already? pst.. who are people saying he looks like? i can't tell.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  23. So very perfect. Love that face....man o man!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. He's beautiful. And that comes from both his daddy and his mama. Love the poem.

    ReplyDelete
  25. He is so cute! Congrats to you both. I love that poem. So sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Bridget! He is such a cutie patootie! And already such a handsome little guy - he does totally resemble his dad! I feel like you can really see his personality in the 2nd picture - so, so cute! Congrats!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh my gosh! He looks so much like Steve! What a cutie. You must be so elated, Bridget. Congrats again.

    ReplyDelete
  28. He looks so much like hubby! I bet he will have your mannerisms, though.

    ReplyDelete
  29. geez where has the time gone! I feel like I was just reading your pregnant posts and now he's a month old! He is just so precious and it's definitely making me want one!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ugh, he's gorg, he really is! And he does look exactly like Steve...but your beautiful genes are in there too and you'll probably start seeing more and more of them!

    ReplyDelete
  31. He's so cute and I agree he looks like your hubby, but maybe he will have your personality! That's how it is with my 1st (also a boy).

    ReplyDelete
  32. It's baby Steve! But babies always change so he'll probably look more like you next month and then after that everyone will think you adopted him.

    ReplyDelete
  33. All babies look like their dad their first year of life (more or less) because according to antropologists, it's so everyone would be able to tell who's kid it is if he/she got lost out in the fields. Makes sense to me!

    He is adorable nontheless :-) I still see a bunch of you in him. The mouth, definitely.

    ReplyDelete
  34. He's rocking out in the first pic--either playing the air piano or something!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Precious boy!! He has a very wise look about him.

    ReplyDelete
  36. omg bridge he SO has your eyes.

    and i thought you wrote that poem, b/c it seems reasonable as you are a phenom writer.

    keep these coming!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. He is so cute!!! I was wondering where you got your rocker from...it is perfect!!!!

    ReplyDelete

  40. I've been a nanny to the same little boy for 7 years now. He was only 4 months old when I started watching him and feeding him his bottle was my most favorite thing ever..still is one of my favorite memories too! He would lock eyes with me, stare and smile and my eyes would always well with tears. He made, er, makes me soo happy! He started 2nd grade today, ah!

  41. Along the lines of what Daniella said, our L&D nurse told us that all babies looked like their dads at first, so dad could be reassured the baby was actually theirs! Ha ha :) I thought that was funny as both my sons looked just like their daddy when they popped out.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Wow. Such a little man. Heavenly.

    ReplyDelete
  43. he does look like his dad but i'm sure he'll look like you soon enough! in any case, he's pretty darn cute :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I can't believe how much he's changed since I saw him! He is a mini-Steve, but Sydney looked like Chad initially and now looks more like me (so they say . . .) - so you never know. Either way - he's cute. I recommend keeping him.

    ReplyDelete
  45. oh my goodness, he's such a little sweetheart. SWOON!

    <3

    ReplyDelete
  46. Love his pose in that picture! He just begs to be snuggled, doesn't he?! You've got one handsome little man there. (i love that at one month he's just a little over 9 lbs... My nephew was 9 lbs. 11oz. 23'' when he was BORN!)

    ReplyDelete
  47. sweetest poem. love that! and yes, the resemblance to your husband is unbelievable!!!! neither one of my boys look like either one of us!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love that top photo of him in the chair, and oh my gosh he looks so much like your husband!

    ReplyDelete
  49. oh swoon. that last picture is the cutest thing i ever did see.

    ReplyDelete
  50. he's adorable! i love his hair color :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  54. it is like i am looking at a photo of steve's head on a baby's body. i love it!

    ReplyDelete
  55. He is precious, and he SO looks like you. Everything about that last picture has you written all over it. Love the poem, and I really thought you wrote it. Lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oh my Gosh he looks just like the husband!!!! Already!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. WOW he does look like his poppa! But don't worry, some of your pretty genes will make their way in there sometime soon! Actually, babies typically look like their fathers at first - it is a biologically imperative left over from our less civilized times. The theory is that if a man sees himself in an infant, he is more likely to be committed to caring for the child and less inclined to leave. Just a little bio theory for you this morning :)
    Congrats again and I can't wait to see what new adventures pop up in your little home!!
    xx, Kait

  58. 1. Such a beautiful poem

    2. Your rocker is the bomb

    3. My bebe feels most comfortable in my arms/up against my chest as well

    4. My husband's genes dominated too. I think she has my lips... if that.

    ReplyDelete
