Crossed over to the dark side

Well, I have been having those post-partum, what they heck happened to my body and will it ever come back feelings that everyone gets. In an effort to attack my woes I joined the gym and am trying to get myself addicted to working out, got a couple of pairs of pants that don't have elastic in them, and this... my latest attempt to keep the groans at bay, I ditched my highlights and went a little crazy.  I was wanting to go darker for the fall, but didn't feel like waiting around for October.  It looks really dark in the pic, it is more of an espresso brown with a few dark goldish highlights.  Pretty wild for me!

We have realized that we need to be better at recording video of Will.  This was taken on his one month birthday! 
I promise Django hasn't made a habit of sitting on our son's head.

One Month!






Last Friday we had our 4 week check up. Will weighed in at 7 lbs 13 oz and was 21.5 in.  We think he is huge! I have been enjoying these past couple of weeks of being a stay at home mom.  I have been cooking a lot! I haven't cooked in forever, but I have really enjoyed it lately.  
Here are some random pics from this past week.  

All ready for bed in my sleep sack.

Oh just one more

This is another picture of Will hanging out with Uncle Nathan.  I think his striped socks are pretty great.  He is growing so fast. I can't believe how much he has changed in 3 1/2 weeks! I don't know about this whole "growing" business.

Three weeks and counting



Will was 3 weeks old last Thursday.  We decided that he is mature enough to start dating (chaperoned of course).  He and I met Kim and Grae at Starbucks, but I am afraid Will found us girls boring.




Here are some pics from Uncle Nathan's visit.  I am pretty sure Nathan approved of our little guy and Will approved right back.





Oh and of course we did what everyone else has been doing lately.  Here is a shot of all of the Ragain men watching the Olympics.



This is just a random picture of Will in some of my favorite jammies.



We have been home all day today after a long weekend of being out and about.  Will and I rested and Phillip "worked" from home... well he really did, but I caught this cute nap moment.

The many faces of Will Ragain


I lovingly call this one the Monkey face... now that I look at it here, I am not sure why I call it that... I think I just imagine him making monkey noises.


A smile


The Little Philosopher face


Ah, and the newest face and his current fav. The binkie face.

Well our first week home flew by!  Will was a bit jaundice so between trips to the hospital to get his poor heel pricked and getting ready for my cousin Chelsea's wedding last weekend the time just slipped away.  Today (Sunday) is the first day since we have been home that we haven't had to be somewhere at a certain time.  We did manage to spend a few mornings on the porch last week, sort of the calm before the storm of each day.  We are looking forward to this week.  We have a whole lot of nothing planned and couldn't be happier.
