Smith is a month old now and he is such a sweet baby. He is doing really well and has been such a blessing. Thursday night we had a really rough night. Smith was having a tummy ache and was very uncomfortable. As his mother, I felt that I should know just what to do to comfort him. I wanted him to feel better...AND I wanted to go to sleep.
Reed and I know that we are very lucky that Smith has only had 2 restless nights in his first month of life, but I felt so helpless and nothing I did seemed to comfort him. We rocked, we put Smith in his swing, we tried it all. He was just so uncomfortable that he could not sleep. So finally, as a last resort... at 3:30 am Reed put him in his car seat, stuck it in the stroller and strolled him around the living room! He fell fast asleep, so we just rolled the stroller into our room, and Smith slept soundly for about an hour and a half right next to our bed...in the stroller! What ever works, huh? Unfortunately, I had to get up and go to the store that morning. After less than 2 hours of sleep I was dreading this day and everything about it. My body and my mind were tired. The feeling of exhaustion was overwhelming and I was not sure I could make it through the day....

Whether or not Smith is going to have have RED hair has been a big mystery! It really looks like it is light brown in person, but I took these pictures of him today and it is SO red! There is no question that he is a redhead in these pics, so I guess as he grows and changes, we will just have to wait and see!
