Seriously. In less than four weeks he's gone from 6 pounds 12 ounces to 9 pounds 2 ounces. One of our cats weighs less than that! My tiny newborn baby boy is growing so quickly!
I have a bunch of posts in my mind. I think about creating them but Ethan is keeping me pretty busy these days. He's sleeping on me right now. I'd love to lean down and kiss his cheek but fear waking the beast.
It's been a big week here.
-We celebrated Ethan's first Valentine's Day with a trip to 'Nama's house' (Matt's mother's home). He hung out there while Matt and I went grocery shopping at Wegmans. Probably doesn't sound romantic for a Valentine's outing, but we miss our Sunday tradition and can't wait to include Ethan in that. Ethan did very well while he was there.
-Also on Valentine's Day Ethan met his GREAT Grandparents for the first time! My grandfather hasn't ever changed a diaper and doesn't really hold babies but he held "E.J.". We've been trying that out as a name for him. Grandaddy called him that the entire visit. Too cute!
-We went shopping together for the first time. I needed to get a baby shower gift so we made a trip to Babies R Us. Matt doesn't enjoy errands as much as I do but he was excited about this outing as our family of 3!
-Yesterday was Ethan's first trip to the mall. More shopping :) After nearly a month, I was feeling a little cabin fever. I didn't want to take him out in public this soon (BRU included) but Matt convinced me that it would be okay. Luckily, no one touched him, he slept through most of the outing, and we found some CUTE new outfits for him. We met Matt there over his lunch break and had a fun time.
-We had his first professional photos taken today. He cried through most of the session but we think the photographer was able to get a few good shots. We'll have to wait until early next week to view our proofs.
More later... he's waking.
