I really wanted to blog this the day of, or the day after, but it has been crazy busy, and I never have time to just sit down and do it. I don't really have the time now either...currently Connor is making his first real attempt at crying himself to sleep. I feel so bad...but I'm so exhausted. He hasn't stayed asleep for more than 30 minutes all day!
Ok but onto happier things. Connor Scott Tyrrel was blessed on February 7, 2010. I have the sweetest little boy..and I fell even more in love with him on Sunday. He woke up really late, like 10:15 and we had church at 11! I could NOT get him to wake up on his own so I sorta had to help him along. He was happy and smiley...
We got him all ready in the outfit his Grandma Tyrrel made for him and gave him for Christmas. He looked SO handsome! Thank you Grandma for making such a nice little suit for him to wear! It was so special to know you made it for him!
Connor was the absolute perfect baby all day. He was happy during the blessing, looking around and cooing at everyone holding him. My uncle Ed told me he sensed that Connor has a really special little spirit..that he's stood in a lot of blessing circles and could tell there was something neat about Connor. What a nice thing to hear as a mother! I know he's special, but I'm his mommy so that comes natural! :-)
So after being a champ during his blessing he needed to eat, but fell asleep on the way home..and slept for the first little bit of the after party! We had some family over (at my grandma's house...my house is too small!) for sloppy joes, chips and salad. Ben made the best Texas Sheet Cake as well! It was really a lot of fun to have the people we love there to support our little Connor!
I was filled with such gratitude and love for my son, and for my husband who honors his priesthood and was able to give Connor a name and a blessing. I've been so excited for this day, since I found out I was pregnant! Benjamin is such a good daddy...and I can't wait to see him grow in his abilities as Connor grows up!
I'm so grateful to be a mother and enjoy the AWESOME blessing of raising my new little baby boy. He's the light of my life, and the joy in each moment of my day. I love looking at him when he's sleeping and getting that flutter in my heart...knowing he's mine forever. I wish he could be a baby always, but I know as he grows I'll have even more fun with him!

Friday, February 5, 2010
So currently my sweet boy is taking his morning nap. He's been taking this nap since 7:45 this morning...so almost 4 hours. And aside from last night because he was a little off thanks to his 2 month shots..he has slept through the night for a week now! Mommy could NOT be happier!
To what do I attribute this miracle? LUCK. I have not tried any secrets or tricks. He's in a growth spurt and it's helping him sleep for 8-10 hours a night! YAY! :-) I've been able to put pictures in albums and frames, do laundry, clean the house, etc... so I feel like a normal human again. And he's only 2 months old!
Yesterday was SAD..poor baby getting his shots was hard. I've never heard him scream like that. Ben said he screamed louder during his circumcision.. which I am thankful to have NOT been party to.
His stats are:
Weight: 9 pounds 10 ounces 7.5 percentile
Length: 23 inches 48th percentile
Head: 15 1/2 inches 7th percentile..I think.
He's growing up right before our eyes but still a small little squirt! I love him. He's my best little friend!
Here's a picture of his poor Band-Aids...
