Happy 1 Week Birthday to our Sawyer

Our little man is 1 Week Old today, I can not believe it! It feels like the fastest and longest week ever.  Now that we have him healthy we are getting into a routine and I am slowly healing and feeling better every day too. Today was so great, my mom took the day to help me since it was John's first day back at work. She brought me some Starbucks (with caffeine) and even watched Sawyer as I showed, oh the things I took for granted! We had so much fun, Sawyer was so alert and loved showing off with his gma. Aunt Amie got to come over for lunch with us too. The best part was my mom brought over all the ingredients for my favorite meal to make for John for dinner when he got off, chicken & noodles, carrots and zucchini :)
Here are more Sawyer Pics with the chicken & noodle recipe to follow...
