Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Preston is 1 Month Old!

Hard to believe that our little boy is already a month old! Time really does fly by when you are having fun! It has been such an amazing adventure so far! So many good times already. I can only imagine the good times to come! We have taken so many pictures in the last month it is hard to pick the few to post, but here are a few.

In Preston's first month he...
-Is eating a lot! He is taking approximately 4oz at each feeding which is every 2-3 hours. He's a growing boy!
-Is sleeping really well (knock on wood). He is taking a feeding around 10pm, then waking around 2ish and waking up again around 6am. This is working out great because Stephen and I are up already for the 10 and 6 feedings, so it's only 1 additional feeding. I will be honest and say that this doesn't happen every night, but we are getting there. =)
- Starting to hold his head up. He is such a strong little guy and is already amazing us with his neck strength.
-Started smiling!! The first smile we got was after I sang "Itsy Bitsy Spider". Daddy and I were both sitting on the sofa playing with him and he gave us his first smile. =) Now we get pretty good reactions during all of our play times.
- Started outgrowing his newborn clothes! People weren't kidding when they told us he would outgrow them fast. He's only worn most of his newborn clothes once and only our favorites twice! He's a little spoiled! ;)
- Started grabbing onto my shirt when I feed him. It's precious!!
- Almost rolled over. He got a good push and ended up on his side. We were pretty impressed with the little guy!
- Met his miracle makers. We took him in to meet his doctors that we grew so close to over this last year. It was super neat to see them and get to take pictures of little Preston with them!
-Is super alert! He will follow sounds with his eyes and get excited when we play with certain toys with him. He likes toys that light up and make noise. So fun!
- Started to LOVE bathtime! He gets so excited when we put him in. We sing "Splish Splash and make a big mess, but it's so much fun!
- Has moved out of mommy and daddys room. We are taking baby steps and have moved Preston to the study downstairs to get used to him being out of our room, but not quite taking the jump to upstairs. He's done really well with the transition, in fact I think he's done better than mommy. ;)
- Watched his first Texas A&M game with daddy. We played OSU and it was a great game. Unfortunately we lost, but the boys looked great decked out in their A&M gear! Gig em Aggies!
-Taken on a couple of nicknames...I like to call him little Bear and at times we also call him little P. I'm sure eventually we'll have to stop referring to him as little, as i'm sure he'll be a very BIG guy, but for now it works and it's cute!
All in all we have had such an amazing first month. There are too many wonderful moments to capture them all, but this outlines a few. It's hard to believe how quickly you can fall completely in love with someone, but we have! Little Preston has filled our hearts and we can't imagine life without him! What a little stud!
