Cutest baby ever

Cutest baby ever

So much for my goal of 2 postings per week.  I knew back then that it was probably overly-ambitious, and I’m 100% sure of that now.  I officially take it back.  Anyways, here are some long overdue pictures of Rushton.  He turned 5 weeks old this Sunday!!  I can’t believe how fast the time is going.  And how little I get done each day.  But I guess as long my child is fed and happy, that’s all I can ask for.

Disclaimer:  Please forgive that none of these photos have been edited, and please excuse the pictures that are slightly out of focus or have terrible lighting.  I’ve been battling with the lenses and lighting, our now 3-level home with mostly finished basement (where it seems like whatever I need/want is always on one of the OTHER levels), time to do anything but feed and change a newborn, and trying to coax a specific someone to do an official photo shoot of our baby.  If I don’t post these mediocre photos, I’ll never get around to posting anything at all.  So with all that in mind, here’s Rushton!

Right after a good sneeze (he’s not red like this – bad lighting)…

Spitting up during a brief photo shoot…

Stretching…

And with his friend Sophie.  We took this picture to compare thigh size.  Sophie wins for now, but we’ll see how Rush sizes up in a few more months…

  1. Omigoodness… that kid is just so handsome! Really, I just want to smooch those cheeks. I’m so glad you posted some pics.

    PS- He’s wearing such cute clothes too! You Spurlocks have good taste. 🙂

  2. He’s pretty cute, but I think Eva might be able to fight him for the cutest baby ever title! 🙂 We’ve got to get everyone together from prenatal class so we can all see everyone’s babies!

  3. Yeah for pictures!! No worries about bad lighting or blurriness. Gosh – we just want to see him! I’m so glad that you’ve discovered mommyhood to be everything that you didn’t think it was. =o) You can’t get anything done! Changing diapers, feeding, burping, changing diapers again .. it’s a wonder we can get showered and dressed. I remember days that I went grocery shopping and made dinner made me feel so proud. I felt like I had accomplished SO much if I cleaned anything. SO .. keep it up. Mommyhood is the best and Rushton is adorable. It looks like you guys make pretty darn cute kids! Love you and miss you!

  4. Hope you got my gushing email. Rush is just so cute! I love it! (Oops-finally listened to your message, 2 days later. I didn’t see any babies when I went. If you have to go tomorrow, can Rush come here?) My mom was so excited she got to see Rushton and even hold him.

  5. He is sure cute! I think we all have the cutest babies ever!! hee hee. We have the same bouncer! Gabe loves his! We keep him all swaddled everyday in it! And once the weather gets warmer we should definitely all get together from the prenatal class for a picnic or something to see everyone!
