Roosevelt Wyatt Wilson

Wyatt and I were blessed with a beautiful baby boy on Friday, August 30, 2013.  Roosevelt Wyatt Wilson was welcomed to the world at 1:21am.  He was 9lbs 9oz, 21.5-inches, with a 15-inch head circumference   I've documented his labor and delivery in my journal, so I will spare you the details.  I'll just let you know that Ro's delivery was hardest thing I've ever done in my life.  Note his head circumference above... yeah, hands down the hardest thing.

Wyatt and I are over-the-moon in love with this little man!  Ro is a very good baby...and I stress very good.  Seriously, he only fusses if he needs something and even then that's a rarity.  He's a good eater and a pretty decent sleeper.  He's super mellow and has a very even temperament.  I feel beyond blessed that Heavenly Father saw fit to send him to us.  It's just a testimony to me that Heavenly Father knows each of us individually.  He knew that I needed an easy baby to "ease" me into motherhood.  Because I'll be honest, as good of a baby Ro is, I still feel like I can't hack it.  Being a mother has been an extremely difficult emotional/mental adjustment for me.  Even so, as hard as things have been, I wouldn't change anything.  It's just the growing pains that come with this new chapter in my life.  Things have gotten better with each new day...

Speaking of new days, there have been 30 since Ro was born!  That's right, our little man turned one-month old today!  I thought I'd follow suit with all the other growing babes out there and document his first 12-months of life through pictures.
