Frankie's 1st Packer Game

The first of many Packer games these two will enjoy together. 

Photo Series - 1 Month!

Our baby was one month on Tuesday so I thought I would take a few photos. He has already changed so much since he was born that I am hoping this will capture his changes from month to month. (I did something similar throughout the pregnancy to document my ever growing belly and it is fun to look at the changes)

A few things to note at one month: he has ridiculous eye-contact, he is sleeping better at night, he is always moving his legs, and he looks more like his Dad daily. This guy is constantly amazing us.

The recliner that Frankie is relaxing in belonged to his Great-Grandpa Francis Wilfred Singer who sadly isn't here physically but I know is with this little man daily.

Newborn Photos

When Frankie was 11 days old, we had Jackie from Live & Love Studios come and take some photos of our little man. The photos really capture how expressive he is as well as his sweet little features. He has already grown so much since these pictures were taken!

Life can be so rough

4 Weeks

Frankie has been with us for 4 weeks today!

Since our last update a few things have happened:
 - Steve went back to work (sad day in the Singer House)
 - Frankie, Kirby, and I have learned how to survive on our own
 - The heat & humidity were not welcome - it left us stuck in the house for a week!
 - Kirby is very protective of his "pet boy"
 - Frankie loves 'The Killers' and any music for that matter
 - Steve is learning to function on less sleep than normal

Francis B is already getting bigger (and longer) and he is becoming more alert to his surroundings. His expressions are the most fun to watch - our favorite is his Zoolander look. He likes to keep us on our toes and doesn't like to be too consistent in his nighttime sleeping. In case we were to forget that he is around, he gives us one of his pterodactyl cries. We are blessed with such a good baby!

We are continuously amazed at how well Kirby behaves around Frankie - and how he always needs to check on him. It is ridiculously adorable. However, this has caused a change in Kirby's sleeping and napping habits which leaves him exhausted. He has learned that when Frankie naps, Kirby naps. The best part of this duo is how little Frankie cares when Kirby gives him kisses or sticks his nose in his face. I envision these two causing lots of trouble together in the near future.

Steve is adjusting to being back at work and working on very little sleep. He loves coming home to an excited puppy, and (usually) a happy baby boy. Oh, he loves coming home to see me too. :-) I love to see him interact with Frankie - it melts this Mama's heart.

I am doing well and enjoying my time at home being a Mama to Frankie and Kirby. They are a joy to be around each day and both are great snugglers. It has also been nice the past couple of weeks to watch US Open tennis - I am trying to get Frankie hooked on tennis early as I know he will have quite the football (Packers) influence over his lifetime.

Here are a few photos from the past couple weeks:

Four Years

This post is only a week late...oops!

We have been married for four years!! It is crazy to look back over these four years and see how far we have come in such a short time. These past few years have been crazy wonderful and this year we become parents to a beautiful baby boy (which is amazing!).

Unfortunately, Steve had to work all day but we did manage to make it out to dinner to celebrate (Grandma Nancy was kind enough to babysit). With all the craziness of having a newborn it was nice to have a little escape just the two of us even if it was only for an hour.

Happy Anniversary to the love of my life, Steve. 
I love being on this journey with you.
