It has been the BEST two weeks with our sweet new little nugget! Gibson David Allphin was born October 5th at 8:23 am, weighing in at 7 lbs. 8 oz with a head full of hair! We are just completely smitten & in newborn heaven. Sweet big brother Mills is stepping into his role as big brother seamlessly and absolutely loves our new tiny dude! He really enjoys giving the baby his Paci and helping to buckle him into all of the things, its adorable and melts my mama heart. I am just soaking in all of the Gibson Dee snuggles while they last because Y’ALL babies don’t keep (insert sobbing emoji). I feel like he has already grown so much in these last 14 days, its really not fair BUT also I can’t wait until my little loves can play together and make lots of memories. As y’all can tell I just have wayyyyy too many emotions right now, send help!
I am so excited for Gibson’s nursery reveal, it turned out just as cute as I imagined it! As soon as we found out we were having a boy I knew right away that light blue, white and a gingham pattern were going to be involved, after that I let my creative juices fly and love how everything came together! I have linked the nursery details at the bottom of the post!
It was so fun putting this special room together, I don’t know what it is about a nursery but it just brings my heart so much happiness and peace! Its my favorite room in the house and I could just sit in there for hours snuggling my precious baby boy.
I was beyond excited to try out the Newton Baby Crib Mattress, it’s not only the perfect baby blue to go along with his nursery but its 100% breathable, washable & recyclable. It helps promote safe sleep with a breathe- thru technology allowing you to breath right through the mattress to help avoid suffocation. It brings my mama heart such peace knowing that he could breath if he rolled over from his back to his belly at any given time! The mattress is also hypoallergenic and the cover is machine washable while the actual mattress can be washed in the tub or shower which is a definite YES in my book! It also comes with a 100 night trail guarantee so you can try it out and decide if its the right fit for you and your tiny babe! I have a coupon code for $50 off HERE, use code amanda_allphin50 at checkout to try it out for a little less 🙂 I am SO excited for y’all to try this mattress out, its absolutely amazing and brings this mama such peace of mind!
My sister came to stay with us for these past two weeks to help take care of the boys, she is an angel and we were so sad to see her leave. She was so sweet and took family photos of us in Gibsons nursery, its so crazy to think that these were taken like a day after he got home from the hospital! How has it already been TWO WEEKS LIKE HOWWW!? Time slow down. My mom made the crib bedding and of course all things Mudpie made their appearance all over his nursery. I can’t wait to get these photos printed and hang them in our home! Having a newborn brings such a special spirit into our home, these straight from heaven baby snuggles are absolutely everything. It can be complete chaos at times but then the dust settles and all is right in the world. Watching our tiny family grow yet again is the biggest blessing I could have ever asked for. I would go through all of the heartache over and over again to have these moments, they are worth it all!
These two sweet boys bring more joy to our lives than we ever could have imagined, they are so precious and the biggest blessings! Its funny, the other day Kyle was sitting on the couch holding Gibson and he said “ I can’t believe he is here, and that he was in your belly just a few days ago. I could stare at his little face all day!” Excuse me while I melt into a puddle! Watching Kyle become a dad has truly made me fall in love with him all over again! I am surrounded by 3 boys and I couldn’t be happier about it! They truly complete me. Our little family is all I have ever wanted. I wish I could tell my aching heart years ago to be patient, that Heavenly Father would bless you with the family you longed for. I wish I could tell her to be strong, to not lose hope and to keep fighting because it would all be worth it. Sometimes we have to go through the bad to truly appreciate the good, I understand that now but infertility was heartbreaking! If you are struggling, the things that I wish I could tell myself are for you….keep your head up, don’t lose hope and trust in the Lord He will NEVER leave you lonely!
