My Baby, My Talenator!

Hey, didn't you hear? I have a baby! His name is Talen. Ha ha yeah I have been taking a child development class. I'm not quite sure I really know what I'm getting myself into with this class but we'll sure find out. Oh man he sure is a handful and he cried so much, but he was growing on me.
I had to give him up today. It has been a rough day, I don't really think people understand except for Meghan S. we never really talked to each other until we both in the class together. We both had it this weekend and think we are suffering from postpartum depression. It is kind of sad.
This is the one of the last pictures I took of him before I had to take him back.
This is the very first day we got our crying machines. My baby is on the Left and Meghan's is on the Right. Good Times.
Now you can't say you don't love this face.
Taking care of this baby was kind of hard when it started screaming you had to figure out if you need to feed it, burp it, rock it, or change it. I was pro at rocking it and we didn't have a rocking chair so I got quite the ab workout.
My Mom and Haylee needed to run into Target so I decided to stay hidden in the car and save the humiliation.
This is me at 3:27 in the morning, and yes I had to wake up in the middle of the night and take care of my little Talenator. I know its not my favorite picture. But I knew that if I took a picture I would be able to post it.
