Marshall's First Week

So Marshall is turning one week old today. He was born Friday, August 21st at 8:14 p.m. He weighed 8 pounds 3 ounces and was 22 inches long. I feel like this week has flown by but last Friday was definitely a long day but it was all worth it. We have had our good days/nights and bad. We came home from the hospital on Sunday afternoon. That first night was tough but I have the best husband in the world. He has stepped in like he's done this before. He has been so much help! He had to go back to work on Wednesday so I have tried to not wake him up when Marshall wakes up but sometimes he gets up anyway to help. We haven't had anyone spend the night with us and we have actually done pretty well with it. We have had help some during the day. Mom came out Monday and today. Brenda came out on Wednesday since Tuesday night was pretty tough and I really didn't get any sleep that night. He is such a precious boy and overall a really good baby. He stays content and is actually sleeping good at night for the most part - this will just take some getting use to. Even though it's only been a week, we couldn't imagine our life without him. Oh and he looks just like Travis.

1st Blog

So I have started this blog so family members and friends can enjoy pictures of our little baby boy once he arrives. But I thought for this first one since Marshall has not made his appearance yet that I would share pictures of his room. I have had a lot help from many people to be able to get his room ready for him to come home to. I am very happy with the outcome! I hope he will be very happy in his room! And on another note, if I don't go into labor on my own, I will be induced on Friday, August 21st! I hope each of you will enjoy this blog and will hopefully be able to keep up new pictures so our family and friends can watch our little man grow!
