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.
