First night alone as a Family!

Grandma Lulu left yesterday, so we had our first night alone as a family! learning how to multi-task--Porter loved cooking with dad--even out at the bbq! It must have exhausted him, as he quickly settled into a post dinner nap!

Porter's First Picnic

Taking advantage of our nice seattle weather, we ventured out for Porter's first picnic of the summer! He did great and just loves being outside--following his parents!

We are enjoying every minute of parenthood. Relishing each moment, as there are so many firsts right now-- he has quite a little personality--so happy, alert and ready to embrace the world! and while I feel like I spend most of my day feeding him-- i have to say breastfeeding is a pretty incredible bond mother and child share!
