Pictures

So, here are Sayer's 4 week pictures that I said I would post like a week ago, whoops. My excuse is that I am chronically tired, so anytime I get a minute, I feel like I would be stupid not to be sleeping. I had my first fatigue induced breakdown last night... Sayer was being really fussy, Nate was gone all night at priesthood, combined with the fact that I was so tired. Then I started to realize that I haven't had more than 3 hours of continuous sleep in 5 weeks, and have no idea when I will... it all finally forced me to tears. I was actually able to hold it together pretty well though. I am actually surprised that I made it to 5 weeks. (Last time I only made it to about 2 hours after leaving the hospital!) I have since re-committed myself, and am doing fine... still bone tired, but bone tired with a positive attitude! It's ok though, because look at this precious face...
He makes it all worth it! I love his full lips, his dimples, and when he smiles (even though they are not really "smiles"). We can't really tell what color his eyes will be, but right now they are a dark grayish-blue, and they are so cute. We love him!

What a cutie! I am very impressed you've kept it together so long. I'm hoping I'll be as put-together with my second (not an announcement, just saying in the future). If you ever need help, let me know, we're just in Orem. I think Asher is around the same age of my little guy, and I'd be happy to have him come play so you can take a nap!

He is so adorable. It is so hard to not get continuous sleep. Callie still wakes me at night she woke me up twice last night Once to be tucked back in after she got up to pee and then again after a scary dream. Bailey still wakes up on occasion, but not as much as Cal. It will be such a delight soon to have three kids waking me up.
You are so good to go running already. I am so eager to start really excersizing again. I havent been very good while preg.

He is such a cute little baby! Hang in there...things can only get better and you will only get more sleep here on out! If you ever need a break just let me know and I can come pick up Asher so that you only have one child to watch over!

He is so freakin cute! How weird that our children were ever that small! You are amazing for going running already! That's so awesome that you were able to do that. Take care and let me know if you need anything.

He is so cute. Does he look so tiny to you? I think you are awesome for running on low sleep for that long. I complain about Lucy and her little sleep sometimes but maybe I should be happy with what I have. I have that sleep book you recommended on hold at the library, I am #7 so hopefully it will go quickly.

Absolutely adorable, precious. He has that perfect baby face and such bright eyes!

He is so cute! I have to say how impressed i am with how often you still update your blog... I have a feeling I will be a no show on here for a while. I just remember how completely exhausted I was with Ryley, any chance I got I was sleeping. Hopefully I can keep it up somewhat :). Sayer really is adorable!

Oh...my...goodness....Sayer is a complete doll!! I really need to stop by sometime and see you guys - at least sometime before we are gone for good. Good luck keeping up the positive attitude - sleep will come eventually!!

What a beautiful baby. Seriously, he is absolutely darling. My favorite picture is the third one down...ooo, I could just kiss him all over! Is he still so tiny? He looks like it, but I don't remember how big babies are anymore. I'm sorry you're so tired...it will get better, always does, though it stink until you get there. Keep up the positive attitude, though you can vent to me anytime you want. He's a doll!

Sayer is so cute! I hope he and Rose can meet one day ;) Thanks for the throw up tips, and I totally feel your lack-of-sleep pain (except yours is worse than mine since you have another child). Good for you for taking some occasional time for yourself (like going on that run!--I went on one the other day with my hubby and it does feel nice to be back in action!) Anyway, keep up the good work, Morgan--you're a great example!
