Mary took this picture on my phone camera. I love it! He was around 8 weeks.
Another favorite! He has become a sweet, content baby lately. He was a bit fussy his first month or so. It is so sweet to watch him kick and kick, smile so brightly, and laugh out loud! I just love to watch him grow and change, even while it makes me sad to see my newborn disappear.
My sweet girl is growing up. She had been wiggling and jiggling this little tooth for weeks. What excitement when it finally came out! I'll post another soon of her in her current state of minus 4 teeth!
Sweet baby boy at 6 weeks old. He is a marvelous sleeper at night, but not such a great napper. More of a cat napper. Ugg. But we are working on it! At least I am well rested to deal with it, right?!
He was 12 # 14 oz at 6 weeks. Just starting to smile in response to us. It has been hard to capture in pictures though. So sweet!
Is this one of the biggest swaddled babies you have ever seen? I tell you, he loves it! It still amazes me every time I watch his response to swaddling him when he is starting to fuss and want to sleep. You can just watch him relax. So sweet. Thought I better take a picture of him in the Moses basket for the last time! Growing like crazy.
Weighing him on a postage scale. Had to improvise! 11 days old 8# 8 oz
2 weeks old
Working towards a smile
3 weeks old and 10 pounds!
I have been blessed to have my Mom come to each of my births. Her visit is always a highlight as it helps pass those last restless days before baby arrives as well as helping me survive the first few days with a new baby. I was so excited to have Mom here for nearly 3 weeks this time. Yay! Curtis is my Mom's 26th Grandchild, so she is an old pro at this. Grandchild number 27 arrived a month after Curtis, so Mom was off to attend another birth!
