3 weeks old

Ok, so officially I took these pictures at 2 1/2 weeks old, but whatever:) Today Ammon is 3 weeks old, which means next week he will be a month old. Crazy! The time has flown! Ammon is a little treasure that I just want to hold all day long. My favorite part of each day is when he is in cuddle mode. He loves to just rest his head on my shoulder and lay on me and I love that about him. I think he loves me! :) He is starting to smile more and more and make little sounds even. Its so fun to watch this lil guy. He is such a blessing. The other day I was just holding him and staring at him for the longest time while he slept. This overwhelming feeling of gratitude came over me. I couldn't fight back a tear or two. Last year I wondered if we'd even be able to have any more children, much less a son after all of our struggles. And here I am, holding a little angel. My son. Wow, every time I say it, I smile. We have a son! I'm just so grateful.
Isn't he perfect?

I adore that little man! The older he gets, the more I think he's resembling Cali. :)

He is adorable! Can't believe he is already 3 weeks. It goes by so quickly.

Precious. I bet he's got enough threads to wear a new outfit every day without repetition.

I can't decide which of Ammons' features I love the most! Those dark eyes, cute nose or kissable lips - he's a keeper for sure.
