Just a few more pictures of the cutest baby ever!!!

Our new adventure!!!

So life has been crazy for obvious reasons. Collin is quite the adventure, especially since Adam and I have very little baby experience so this so new for both of us. For us there is no maternal or paternal instinct. We keep hoping it will kick in but so far, we're pretty clueless and it's lots and lots of trial and error, usually just error. But we aren't giving up and we're really having so much fun. We love watching him sleep because he is just so darn cute and peaceful! What a wonderful blessing, we feel so fortunate to be blessed with Collin and to be learning and growing. Before Collin came I kept praying for patience so that I could be a better mom, and guess what, Heavenly Father is giving me ample opportunities to learn patience, unfortunately it's slow coming, but I'll get there.

So Adam wanted me to make sure and include our nickname for Collin otherwise known around our house as Prince Stinky pants. Prince because he gets what he wants when he wants it (we try to hold out sometimes, but we usually cave when we realize he's not going to stop crying until we do) and stinky pants because we have changed numerous lethal diapers and he has had several smelly smelly accidents all over me! We're learning to NOT be so frugal with diapers because it only ends in me getting nice little gifts from Collin's overly full diaper. Sorry for all the information but that's our life, feeding Collin, changing his diaper, trying to keep him awake, changing his diaper, feeding him, changing his diaper, feeding him, coming up with all kinds of creative ways to try and get him to look at us, etc. etc. There is some sleep time in there, but you never know when he's really going to sleep! Ha ha needless to say it has been such an adventure and we love our little Prince Stinky Pants. He has brought us so much joy! Yes, lots of frustration, especially me since I'm anything but patient, but we just can't stop looking at him and saying how cute he is. It is amazing how easy it is to love this little baby and how quickly and how comfortable we are with saying he is our son and we are his parents. We love this sweet little boy and are so excited to see just how much he changes our life (of course it has already changed so much and we are embracing that change! We just love being parents!)

We have the camera out and we're always snapping shots of our sweet little boy, so here are some more!!

Here is another video of Collin. The lighting isn't so great, but we still think he's pretty darn cute. This is when he was still in the hospital, probably day 2.

Jenn's a Mommy!

So Jenn probably doesn't want this video on here, but it's Collin's first day alive. She doesn't think that she looks good because she just had a baby, but doesn't she look great everyone. She did a great job. Collin was 7lbs 1oz and he was 20 in long. He loves to eat and sleep, and he likes to mess his diaper right after it gets changed. He really is an awesome baby!

Here are some pictures of our new baby!!! Collin Michael Brandt was born on June 30th, 2008 at 1:58 pm. He weighed 7 pounds 1 ounce and was 20 inches long. Both he and his mom are doing great, and his very proud dad! Jenn will write more later, but I just wanted to get these out so you all could take a look at him.

Nice Bicep!
