7 Weeks

My little boy is growing up; he is already 7 weeks old. I was playing with him last night and started to cry because he has changed so much. Drew no longer looks like a newborn; he has even outgrown his Newborn and Preemie cloths. He is now only wearing 0-3 month outfits. Last Monday Drew went in for a checkup and weighed 9lbs 2oz. Drew now has a double chin and fat roll on his arms and knees. He slept longer periods of time this week - 3 hour afternoon naps! Drew and I have been taking daily walks around the block; Drew seems to like all the movement and the new things to see. Our grass turned green this week and our tree is starting to bloom. Spring is finally on its way! John and I tried to go on a short date to Starbucks on Friday night, hoping Drew would sleep in his car seat but, he wanted nothing to do with sleeping. We ended up taking our caffeine home and all three of us cuddled next to the fire. Drew had a fussy week; he has been battling minor stomach pains and a little bit of gas. He even managed to overflow two diapers, one of which overflowed onto mommy's pants! We both had a bath that night!

Drew and daddy had a fun week. John took care of Drew a lot during the day while I worked in the office. John carried Drew around on his back and showed him how to change the brakes out on the car. We all went to church on Sunday and then to Costco for groceries. My work computer tired out this morning so I spent much of the day ordering a new one. John has been working his usual 10:00pm - 6:30am shift so Drew and I are alone most nights. It is a good think Drew is a good sleeper at night, or I may resent John?s night shifts. John and I are getting ready for camping season ? yes we are taking little Drew with us! We have a weekend trip planned in April and May. The trip in May will be with our church group, and the trip in April is with some friends of ours Zach and Nicole. John, as usual, is designated the camp chef. We are also looking for great deals on flights to fly home to Oregon May 12 th -22 nd. We can't wait to see all of you!
