round one

If the poor kid knew how much of this he was in for I don’t think he’d be smiling…

Sorry this is a short post but I think I’ve underestimated what being a mom of two takes! Hopefully I’ll be in the swing of things and posting more about sweet baby Ephraim soon.

His hair looks lighter than it did three days ago! Miss you guys!

DebbieNovember 25, 2007 - 4:58 pm

The sleeping smiles are one of my absolute favorite things about a newborn. They may not be “real”, but they are so precious (and entertaining!) and make you look forward to what’s to come.

Sounds like you’re hanging in there. And don’t worry, we out here in blog world totally understand how hard it is to juggle it all. You just take care of yourself and those sweet babies of yours and we will patiently wait to hear about how things are going.

He is so precious. And I love the colors from his bedding. How fresh to see that used with a newborn.

The smile is too precious. I’m sure by next week you’ll be a mom of two pro! Love to see pictures again. Hopefully I can meet your little man soon.

AmyNovember 25, 2007 - 5:16 pm

I’m very impressed that you even got these beautiful photos, not only taken, but edited, and posted here!

He’s looking great and with that Erin specialty super-swaddle, it’s no wonder he’s sleeping peacefully! You are the master 🙂

Thank you so much for posting more pics of Ephraim. He is so beautiful and smiling already. He DOES know what’s ahead of him.

AmandaNovember 25, 2007 - 5:22 pm

He’s just precious. Congrats again!

Aunt LuNovember 25, 2007 - 5:49 pm

Give him a big kiss for me. He’s to cute and already smiling, thats a good sign.

sharonNovember 25, 2007 - 6:07 pm

Look at his hair!!! And his fat face! Erin he is just too perfect!

NanaNovember 25, 2007 - 6:11 pm

He’s beautiful! It looks like the bruises are already gone.

lyndsayNovember 25, 2007 - 6:27 pm

Erin he’s gorgeous and I just can’t get over the blond hair! So cute!! Seeing your little one makes me even more anxious for my little guy to get here. I hope you are feeling well.

MeganNovember 25, 2007 - 6:40 pm

I think everyone will understand and keep checking back while you get adjusted to being a mom of two. It’s a huge adjustment and I’m sure you will do just fine with it. Ephraim is just so precious. Lovely photos.

MarciNovember 25, 2007 - 6:52 pm

Wow, I can’t believe you have pics posted either. You are super mom. He is a beautiful baby. Congratulations again.

J.J. KillinsNovember 25, 2007 - 7:45 pm

oh so lovely…hope all is well my friend, thinking of you lots…

StephanieNovember 25, 2007 - 8:14 pm

He is just gorgeous! I’ll bet you’ll be adjusted in no time. 🙂 Congrats again!

Hillary SandersNovember 25, 2007 - 8:34 pm

Aw! I can’t wait to see him grow up! I didn’t start reading about Sarah until just recently but I will be reading about Little E (not that this is an acceptable nickname – I just don’t want to botch the spelling) as often as you post! Congrats and best wishes – I know you will be a great Mama of 2!

eNovember 25, 2007 - 9:22 pm

many congrats on the safe arrival of your sweet boy! Enjoy all the newness and sweetness of that newborn. They are little pieces of heaven!

JeanelleNovember 25, 2007 - 9:28 pm

What a great capture! Such a sweet smile! (even if it is gas!)

KatieNovember 25, 2007 - 9:40 pm

Oh such a pretty baby boy! Well done Mommy & Daddy! I’m extremely impressed that you are already posting pictures!

The TresslersNovember 26, 2007 - 5:49 am

Your son is so handsome! Thank you for taking the time to post these photos. Take this time go rest and take care of yourself and your precious little ones and don’t worry about your “fans” out here in blog world!

KimNovember 26, 2007 - 6:28 am

Congratulations! He is simply adorable-those sleeping smiles are the best.

ColleenNovember 26, 2007 - 6:48 am

Sweetie pie! I can’t imagine life with two…

AmyNovember 26, 2007 - 7:05 am

He is beautiful! So sweet..we love babies at this house and Zoe is fascinated by him! You will be fine as a mother of two! It just takes a little time figuring out what works..but it does! Take care of yourself!

Congratulations! He’s so handsome!

Liz CNovember 26, 2007 - 8:03 am

He is beautiful!! Congratulations. Hope you are feeling good. Sending happy thoughts your way!

JoyceNovember 26, 2007 - 9:01 am

How very precious, these photos are. With all that you need to do, with “two,” I am so happy to see that you are getting back to your blogging.
Love to all…

WendyNovember 26, 2007 - 11:55 am

Brent and Erin,

He is beautiful!! Thanks for posting pictures.

To Erin I would say that we ALL felt the way you are feeling! Going from 1 to 2 “ate my lunch,” but it does get easier with time.

After our 4th, I kept telling myself over and over again: “One is none and two is twenty; Three is nice and four is plenty!”

On that note, our girls still say “A dot is alot” every single time they use glue! Many thanks to the most wonderful kindergarten teacher ever. =)

Hang in there,

Wendy and girls (“myfairladies”)

JenniferNovember 26, 2007 - 11:58 am

He’s beautiful!! Hang in there, it’ll get easier once you’ve got your strength back.

JodiNovember 26, 2007 - 11:58 am

Love the cornucopia theme for your Thanksgiving boy. 🙂

What a sweet smile. Good thing because I have feeling he might have a FEW pictures taken of him.

HeatherNovember 26, 2007 - 1:42 pm

Congrats! He’s beautiful. I know you’re life will be super busy now that you have two. Enjoy these early days when the little ones are sooo sweet. Jackson’s almost 8 weeks old now (time is flying) and he’s starting to outgrow his newborn outfits and making me sad 🙁 Congrats again!!

KristaNovember 26, 2007 - 1:54 pm

I didn’t leave a comment earlier, so congratulations and welcome to Ephraim! I’ve showed Leah the pics of Sarah holding her new baby brother in hopes it will help. We’ve been having some issues: “No baby come to Leah’s house!”
…And that hair looks a lot like Leah’s did when she was born 🙂

MarlaNovember 26, 2007 - 2:36 pm

He looks so incredibly sweet, Erin!! So adorable. 🙂

lizNovember 26, 2007 - 4:28 pm

sooo cute! he’s smiling like a Cobb already. I miss him 🙂

JaniceNovember 26, 2007 - 7:55 pm

Erin, I can’t even believe you had the time to take such gorgeous photos and blog about it! I’m glad you did but we all understand if you aren’t able to espcially around this busy holiday season!

I love all the pictures as always! Love the lighting, too!

DeniseNovember 26, 2007 - 8:00 pm

Okay, you WILL get the hang of this!!! I promise!!! But, man oh man – another beautiful child! Wow, he’s so beautiful!!!!!

TinaNovember 26, 2007 - 9:16 pm

OH MY GOODNESS…..He is so adorable Erin, Congrats!
It’s good to hear that all of you are doing well, and what a sweet letter to pigbear that was…I hope you have that printed out somewhere for her for a later date!!

DaisyNovember 26, 2007 - 10:31 pm

How do you manage to capture all those warm, fuzzy feelings in your pictures?!?! I’m surprised at my own emotional response to seeing your precious son – as well as all of the prior pictures of your equally precious daughter. Thank you so much for sharing!

I’m sure things are hectic, but I can’t imagine anyone dealing with it better than you!


LaurenNovember 27, 2007 - 7:16 am

Absolutely beatiful! I hope you find yourself adjusting to being a mommy of two more and more each day. Enjoy the time with that amazingly adorable son and daughter.

All my best to the whole family,

carolNovember 27, 2007 - 8:15 am

What a handsome little boy. We understand what it takes with 2 in the house, get your rest and we will wait for your blogs.

AngieNovember 27, 2007 - 9:13 pm

Oh, he is just perfect and beautiful! He looks so warm and snuggly! Congratulations, Erin. What a gift!

GinaNovember 28, 2007 - 11:15 am

Look at that hair, blonde or red?

I can’t believe he is smiling already. Hope you are enjoying Ephraim.

Susie PSUNovember 28, 2007 - 11:24 am

More work, but more love, too. You’ll get the hang of it before you know it, and you’ll be blogging that baby all of the time!! Any ideas on a name for the new blog?
