"It won't be like this for long..."

He didn't have to wake up
He'd been up all night
Layin' there in bed listenin'
To his newborn baby cry
He makes a pot of coffee
He splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss and says
It's gonna be O.K.

It won't be like this for long
One day we'll look back laughin'
At the week we brought him home
This phase is gonna fly by
So baby just hold on
'Cause it won't be like this for long

After days of anticipation, I finally received an email from the photographer who took photos of Eli last week.  He has already grown so much (in his cheeks, he can eat!) since these were taken.  It breaks my heart that he will never again be this little, but then I think about all the fun we have in store for us in the next years as a family.  Those first steps, years of bickering with his big brother, the first day of school, getting on mommy and daddy's nerves, vacations, and so many wonderful memories to make!  I cannot wait to continue this journey together!  Until then, let us enjoy the time he is small while we can! 
Thank you to Truly Faithful Photography for helping us capture this precious time in Elijah's life!

Love these boys!!
