Another week already! Time has never gone so fast. The days seem to fly even though I don’t do much other than feed, rock, bounce, change and clean. I have to admit by 6:00 I am ready to hand him over to Casey for a short break. Mom comes over a few days a week which also gives me a little break to get a few things done or run a couple errands.
There isn’t too much to report this week. Graham is growing like a weed and I really think he is pushing 12 pounds already. His disposable diapers are getting really small and we are moving to the bigger sizes in the cloth diapers. He also seems so long to me! I was looking at pictures this week because I am going to finally print some and I couldn’t believe how much bigger he is already. I got a little sad when I was looking at the pictures. Last year at this time I was recovering from my surgery! We have come a long way in a year.
We are still using the cloth diapers and I am really starting to like them. I could easily get addicted to them and if you let yourself go crazy you could spend a ton of money. I am liking the pockets that I purchased and I am not sure if I will return them or not, but they are expensive. I can see how they would be nicer and easier to use as he gets older, but I wonder how they will hold up over time. We are still using disposables at night, but I am planning to switch to cloth at some point. I need to do a bit more research and I think a pocket would be nice to have for nights. At the very least a wool or fleece cover would be nice to have for nights.
I will post a couple pictures tonight, but I have more to post eventually. I haven’t had time to do the editing yet. I will try to post the family pictures later this week when I get them fixed up a bit. My cousin Greg and his fiance came to visit us for an afternoon this week and we had a great time visiting with them. Graham loved them and both are naturals with babies. We are so excited to have some family in NC. This is the first time in my life I have had family in the same state (other than in-laws). I am sure we will be seeing them a lot and hopefully we will get more visitors now that there are more of us down here. I have some pictures from their visit that I need to add too.
Here he is at seven weeks. I need to try to get some new “poses” this week, but it is easiest to take the pictures when Casey is holding him so they all start to look the same. Taking pictures of babies that can’t sit up or really make faces is difficult! Then again all my animal pictures look the same too! I have some other ones, but they aren’t ready yet and I need to get to bed so I will do a mid-week post to add those.
Here is one of JD I took this week.
And not to be left out here are the bunnies cleaning Graham’s chair for him
