2 Months & Graduation

Elijah, Eli, Munchkin, Piglet
@ 2 months
11 lbs 1 oz.
23 1/4 inches

So time has literally flown by since Eli was born.
I can't believe he is already 2 months old. It seems just yesterday we were in the hospital seeing him for the first time.
Now he's smiling, cooing and kicking away.
Every day he steals my heart away.
He is perfection.
And it looks like he's going to have my eyes :)
Lock up your daughters, my son is going to be a lady killer.
In other news, during my absence...I GRADUATED COLLEGE!

Just this last Saturday, I crossed the stage ending my 17 year old relationship with school.
It still hasn't really set in that I won't be going back to school this fall.
I've spent more than half my life in pursuit of this goal and now it's over.
I can't lie, I was dreading walking. I think apart of me wasn't ready to close that chapter because the future is so unknown.
As of now my only job is to be the best mother I can be to Eli. Which is a hard enough job in itself.
I'm going to enjoy my summer...reading books that I want to read, working towards losing my baby weight and whatever else comes my way.
I'm nervous about keeping myself busy only because I'm the type of person that goes a million miles a minute. But I have faith that it will all work out. I mean I've come this far right?
Grad school has crossed my mind but after the hell of a semster I just had, I really need a break from school for awhile.

Since I missed Eli's 1 month post, here's a few of my favorite photos from his newborn photoshoot around his 1 month. Enjoy!
Cute as a button.

The Josephs.

Daddy and Eli. This melts my heart.

Keep posted for my summer adventures. Soon to come :)
