he won't be this little for long

Every time I have to get up in the middle of the night with Bronze, I'd rather be sleeping. 
Truthfully. I love sleep. I have to pep talk myself into enjoying those night time moments every time by remembering, 
"He won't be this little for very long. Soak in the newborn-ess." 
And then I do. I soak it in like it's never been soaked before.

I can't believe I have a baby!!! 
Soak soak.

holy exhausted


The worst part is: It's not Bronson that's getting in the way of peaceful slumber. He sleeps like a champ. It's my boobs. 
If I don't wake the kid up to eat every 2 hours, we'll have a major problem. Holy cow. 
 My mom said, "You won't have to set an alarm clock anymore. 
Your boobs will be one from now on." 
Words of wisdom. I might needlepoint that on a pillow.

thoughts on motherhood so far.

Motherhood so far ... well it's only been a month but so I can honestly say it's been the best thing ever. I love this little kid more than I ever thought possible. I feel like I've learned so much about what I'm capable of and in such a short amount of time. Never sleeping, nursing, labor; I'm like a freaking super hero! Haha. Not really but I really do love being a mom. I kinda have the urge to tell everyone to have a baby because it's the best thing ever! I'm refraining though, promise. I've never loved Toph more and I'm so excited to see what our little boy becomes. Life is pretty great. AND: I'm so tired!

law school here we come

(Basically what he did the whole trip. He didn't cry at all!! Whew.)

We moved! We left the only home we've ever know as the Tuttles and moved from Provo, UT to Davis CA. B did excellent even though he had to sit in the car for two days as we drove slowly to accommodate the moving truck. Which Toph had the pleasure of driving all by himself. You're a good man, Topher Tutt! I just had to sit in the passengers seat while my mom drove our car for us. 
Pumping in the car is super easy, FYI. 
Anyway, we're so happy to be back in CA!!
