Thumbs and Walks

Dax has HUGE thumbs, in general I think he has pretty big hands for a newborn. He's going to be a thumb war champion!! Up until now, he's managed to suck on his fist. He somehow manages to get most of his fist into his mouth and then proceeds to suck it while I get ready to feed him. Yesterday, as I was getting set up to nurse him, his fist started to creep up towards his face, and at the last minute, he opened his hand, and managed to find his thumb, and started sucking on his thumb. I cannot believe he's sucking his thumb already, I shed a few tears. I know this is just the first of many milestones to come, but I just can't believe my baby is almost 3 weeks old already!!! I don't have a picture of him sucking his thumb yet, but here's a picture of his sweet little hands and thumbs : )

I know as his mom, I am biased, but seriously how adorable is my son?!

And here is his massive thumb :) I'm sure it will come to good use one of these days!

Today we also went for a walk. We went around the apartment complex and it felt great to get some fresh air. We have a snowsuit type of outfit for Dax, and he looks like a little bear with it on! It's a little big, but he is just too cute when we put him in it, and then put him in his carseat. I was able to get a good picture of it today.


  1. I saw someone that looked like you today and it hit me that you had probably already had your baby. I said that out loud and Kyle was like, "Oh yeah, I saw it on Doug's facebook page." Nice of him to mention it to me!

    Anyway, he's beautiful! Congratulations!

  2. Thanks Sara - leave it to our husbands to keep us informed : ) We've never been more sleep deprived but so happy!!
