Letting go...



So, I pretty much have not left my house for months. I was on bed rest at the end of my pregnancy and I have been too nervie to take Mister out. I always said..."I will start taking him out at six weeks." and now he will be six weeks tomorrow. Im not sure how I feel about this. If you know me at all you know I can be anxious...this is my new "anxiety"...taking him out into the world is what I am focused on. I was thinking today about Monie and what that must have been like for sister to see her newborn baby SO sick in the hospital. She was so strong...could I be strong like her? I realize I cant live my life like this, afraid of what COULD happen to him. Not to mention people live their lives everyday... an obvious statement for most. So, Im trying to let go of my fears. I want to get Mister out, not to mention its what is best for his immune system. So tomorrow is the day...Im turing over a new leaf...changing my thought process. We will be MOM AND SON ABOUT TOWN...thats what you will call us. Movers and shakers. Completely carefree of this germ infested world. kidding.../not



Here are some photos from my phone...thats all I ever take because my phone is always right there and my camera isn't.


Can you believe those dimps? He is pretty much giggling these days.

He's a DeWitt baby-strong. Just a walk around the block is refreshing! Go for it.

How cute is he!!! That last one is so sweet! I get the germ thing, I was known as the family sanitizer with my constant hand sanitizer dispensing to ANYONE who held my premie. But, what gave me comfort in times of germ anxiety was the fact that I was nursing. The antibodies you give him through nursing are the absolute best in keeping him strong and healthy. I say be brave, six weeks is a great age for a first lunch date with that Aunt Amy of his!

He looks healthy, happy, ready for the big world outside your house. Go for it!! Life is worth living.

He is darling! I just wanted you to know that I got a blog up and going. It's rachelholste.blospot.com. Hope everything is going well for you!

It is always hard to take them outside for the first time..you sort of see everything in a different way when you have a wee baby with you! He'll be just fine - you'll be there to protect him and he'll enjoy experiencing and seeing everything for the first time. You'll love it! Baby steps...no pun. Can we come see him tomorrow?

oh ann...I thought of you today when my neighbor let his big stinky dog poke its nose into the boys' stroller.

I hope you made it out. It gets easier every time.

I hope you had a good day out and that it helped to ease your nerves! The first time is always tough. He is so cute Ann!!

Love the new look of your blog too!

Look how happy your little man is. Dimples are the best. We'll meet up for lunch anytime you want to get out of the house. I kept Paul home from church for 8 weeks so you're not alone.
