One Month Already?!

How is it possible that this little guy is one month old today? I know, I'm sounding like one of those sappy parents but this month really did fly by!

Future Partners in Crime

For months our nephew Dallas had heard that Dustin and Karissa were having a baby and he'd be here soon. If it felt like an eternity to us I can only imagine how hard of a concept that was to grasp for a three year old. But Dallas is very smart and somehow he accepted it.

What Cliche?

Deep down inside, only once confessed and that was to my husband, I had this great fear that I would not love being a mom. I had wanted this so badly but now that it was so close I was unsure that maybe I overplayed how wonderful motherhood would be and overestimated how much love I could give. Maybe the mother's love thing was a cliche and I wouldn't bond with my baby when he was born. Not to mention, postpartum depression was a real thing and maybe a baby would push me off the edge. The closer my due date got the more uncertain and terrified I became. All I knew is that I did not feel this amazing connection with the baby growing inside of me and I did not enjoy being pregnant. I loved him sure but I also loved mint chocolate chip ice cream and beautiful Fall days. I was looking forward to him arriving but I also looked forward to holidays and weekends. I probably wasn't capable of this whole mother thing but now it was too late. There was no going back.

Baby Bump Photo Shoot

 We had been wanting to take some maternity pictures before the baby arrived. Little did we know we took them just in time as baby arrived the following day. :)  Dustin took these shots in our back yard, he is so very talented. They turned out great!

The First Few Weeks

The first few weeks of Everett's life have been tiring, emotional and beautiful. We are so in love with him and being parents with a newborn has been so much better than we thought it would be. Dustin loves being a dad, I love being a mom and we love each other more than ever. It's a different feeling going from being a couple to being a family but it's wonderful. I wouldn't trade this for anything in the world.


Baby Man

"Hey Baby Man." That is how Dustin greets his son when he arrives home from work. Everett is certainly not yet a man and not quite yet a little man but he is his daddy's baby man.

Everett & Great Grandpa Kramer

One of the things that was very important to Dustin was that his Grandpa Kramer be able to meet Everett. It just so happened that Everett arrived four days after his Great Grandpa did. The timing was perfect and we were so glad that Grandpa Kramer was able to be here.

Everett Allen's Birth Story

We had three weeks to go and yet we were anxiously hoping and praying that Baby Kramer would decide to arrive earlier. We were so ready to meet him, the joys of pregnancy had long since passed and we were ready to hold our baby in our arms. He must have heard us. :)
