2 1/2 weeks!

It is so amazing that I have been a mom for 2.5 weeks! I am so grateful that my mom has been here to help me through the nights and keep me company during the day while Tyler is gone to school and work. Tyler has been great too. He has gotten up during the night sometimes to help with Cameron when Cameron is having a rough night and I am tired. He is such a great dad. I love seeing the two of them together. It melts my heart when I see them bonding. I love it.

Cameron is doing great though. He sleeps 4-5 hours a night allowing us to sleep and is great during the day. He does have his moments when he has a rough time, but other than that, he is a great baby. I couldn't ask for anything better. Now that Cameron is so good, our next one (years down the road) will probably be hard.

It is weird for me staying home all day to be with him. I am so used to working two jobs and before going to school at the same time. Now, I just stay home and take care of Cameron. I love it, but sometimes I get bored because you can only do so much. I am trying to get some hobbies to keep me occupied for a little bit. I even bought a sewing machine (belated birthday gift) so I can learn how to sew more things. I am excited to see what I can learn and do on this machine.

One more great news...we are proud owners of BOTH of our cars!!! We paid off my car at the beginning of this year, and just paid off the Subaru. It feels great! The only "debt" we have left is our student loans. It feels great that we don't have to worry about the other stuff!

I will keep you posted on our little boy and how he is doing.

Our New Bundle of Joy

That is right! He has finally arrived!!! Cameron Selby Voris was born October 5, 2009 at 1:27 pm. He was 7 lbs 5 oz and 21 inches long. He is a very healthy and happy baby.

We arrived at the hospital at around 1 am on Monday morning. 12.5 hours of labor later (including 1.5 hours of pushing), he was here. Our little boy finally came into this world and we could never be so happy. We love being a family of 3 now. It is difficult with Tyler being gone to school and work all the time, but we know it will all be worth it. Tyler is also great with Cameron. They love to be with each other. I think sometimes Cameron will follow Tyler's voice with his eyes. For a 6 day old baby, he is very alert, but I like it. I think it is very cute :)

Now we are just trying to adjust to the new sleeping/feeding schedule, but he is catching on after a few exhausting days/nights. He is such a cute little boy and we love him so much. We are so glad that he is finally here.
