I'm a Mommy

Sunday, April 29, 2012

Last time I posted I was just a girl.

Now, I'm a mommy. I feel important. :)

Little Ninja was born at 9:21 p.m. on Wednesday night weighing in at 8 lb 7 oz (Woah!)(Oh wait, remember that huge belly picture?)

He is officially the cutest baby ever and I have the certificate to prove it.

He gets this title even when he scrunches up his face and looks like a grumpy old man. 

I heart him.

He's the cutest.

Okay, I'll stop now.

I don't have a million pictures (yet) because apparently newborns eat for 22 hours of the day/night.

I will share my two favourite photos so far. The first one is a silly Instragram photo that I snapped in the hospital and the second is a picture that I tried to make look fancy by using some filters in Lightroom.

Okay, here he is.

P.S. Feel free to ooooh and aaaaaah as much as you like. I won't mind.

P.S.S. His name is Cooper. But he likes to be called Mini-Coop. I know, I know, what's with me and the nicknames?

Okay, here he is for real.
Loungin' at the hospital. Two days old.


Chillin' at home. Four days old.

Tomorrow we have a "photoshoot" booked. Me and him. I'm the photographer, he's the model. I may or may not bore you with ten thousand photos of him after that.

:)

P.S.S.S. Do you see that chin? Ca-ute-ness!

  10. Congratulations, Sarah! He is absolutely adorable and looks so angelic :)

    I love his name (and nickname!) although Little Ninja was pretty fun, too!

    Enjoy all of the firsts of parenthood - I'm sure it will put a completely different perspective on being a teacher as well.

    So glad I logged on one more time and found this happy news :)

  11. Welcome to the coolest club around! He is just beautiful, enjoy every second of him.

    P.S. is it weird that I got about as excited as if it was my good friend telling me about their baby? I guess that's what happens when you follow someones life in blog form, you think of them as friends. :)

    CONGRATULATIONS FRIEND!

  46. Sarah, you don't have to approve this comment, as I'm sure you are busy with being Super Mom...(who has time for monitoring comments?), but just wanted to say sorry for doubling up my comments. My computer went funky as I submitted my first comment, and I wasn't sure if the first one went through or not. Anyhoo, this may be my third comment to you...I have no idea. I really just wanted to send you one big ol' congratulations. I'm so happy for you! Being a Mommy is the best gift I've ever received, and it's so exciting to see folks who so lovingly want to be parents have a baby. Such a blessing! Big hugs, Holly

  64. Aw!!! Yay!!! Congratulations, Sarah...and welcome to the world, Mini-Coop!!!! (Love the name!) He is sooooo handsome...one of those genuinely good-looking babies as opposed to those wrinkly, weird looking babies that you must lie to their parents and say they are cute! How was your labor? I hope it went well!! Isn't it crazy that he's here after all those months inside? It's totally amazing. Enjoy these first few weeks/months at home with home, there's nothing quite like it!! So excited for you:) And hope you get some sleep...remember, sleep when the baby sleeps;)
