Well I have been very humbled having this new handsome young man in my life. I forgot how precious babies are. I never thought I could love anything or anyone more than I do this baby. I know I have said this a thousand times but he is such a blessing to us. He already is such a good baby and can always bring a smile to our faces. The girls are just in heaven and always say they have the cutest brother in the world. It is so fun to watch Ryan with him. He is very proud and is already such a great dad to him and an amazing husband!! He always is asking what he can do to help and doing everything he can to help when he is home. He even gets up in the middle of the night with him. I am so grateful for him and all his help. I am used to doing everything on my own and it is so nice to have someone there to help and support me. The first 4-5 days were a little rough. We did not sleep at all Wednesday night, a little bit Thursday night, and Braxton was up all night Friday so needless to say by Saturday we were pretty frazzled!!! We were both pretty overwhelmed. Thankfully the next two nights he slept really well. I am so grateful that my mom was here all week to help me because I needed her company. I thought once Braxton was here I would be a little better about being away from home but I have now decided it is worse. It is so hard for me to be away from my fam and all my friends!! I miss everyone so much and wish they could see Braxton!! My husband said he is sorry that I am so sad but he is not moving back to Logan to make me happy. I know this is where we need to be but it is really hard for me to accept that right now. I guess I need to fix my attitude and make the most of it. But I know that Braxton is here for a reason and everything worked out for that same reason so I could not be more grateful for that. We love you Braxton!!!!!
