My son's feet are 'spectacular, spectacular.' I mean those biggins are going to be good for something someday. Or he could just trip over them all the time. I guess we'll see. Daddy has a few guesses-football player, basketball player or maybe even a swimmer. Personally I would prefer a pianist or a guitar player. Its Weston's choice of course. We'll encourage him in whatever he chooses. For now, he just likes to fall asleep on daddy's chest. During the day, he has come to life recently. See how alert he is in the activity gym? He's really analyzing that monkey thats hanging down. Our sweet dog Sammie thinks she's Weston sometimes. I believe his papasan is her new favorite spot.

Our son had another excellent visit. The doc was very impressed with his weight gain. Generally, babies only gain an ounce a day at this point but our son gained 10 ounces since his last visit which was only 7 days ago. Thats our growing boy. Daddy is so proud of him. Its so special to see such a big man in awe of such a little baby.

Grammy and Clark came to visit us from North Carolina this weekend. Weston had his first restaurant adventure at Pie in the Sky. Lucky for us, we were the only ones there. However, I wouldn't have mind if the place was packed cause Weston slept the whole time. What a good boy. We had a wonderful time laughing with each other and staring at our precious new addition. We are so glad they came to see us and can't wait for the next time.

Weston had his one week doctor's visit today. I was so impressed. I thought there would be a lot of screaming but he barely made a peep while the doctor examined him. Made me so proud. The doctor says everything looks great so we are very thankful to know our little man is healthy and doing well. He hadn't pooped in 3 days so we were a little worried about that. They took his temperature at the visit and that must have done the trick cause when we got home he had a FULL diaper. I know he was relieved because he couldn't stop smiling.

Well, we finally had our first rough night. Can't you see the tiredness in my eyes? All in all it wasn't too bad. He only fussed from 1:30-3:30 and then didn't wake up again until 6:30. I think he was just a little gassy so its understandable. Besides feeding time, this is Weston's favorite place to be. Must be a mommy thing.

I have to recommend having a baby in April. There's just something about this amazing weather along with the overwhelming joy of being a new parent that makes this time so special. Weston may have been born a big boy but he's still just a little baby. Look how he barely takes up any room in his bassinet. I know some people have been asking for a picture showing his hair. This is the only one I've got for now but I'll be sure to take some more soon. He's just so cute I almost can't take it. I started crying today because I'm so happy. I've got a healthy baby, a wonderful husband who has been absolutely awesome and taken to fatherhood like it was his second nature, family and friends who love to ooo and aaww over our son and a God who loves us and keeps blessing us more and more everyday. My cup runneth over.

10% of the time he's awake and just looking around.
20% of the time he's eating.
70% of the time he's sleeping.
I believe he would of slept through his whole first night at home if I hadn't felt like I needed to wake him up to feed him. He went to bed around 11:30, I woke him up at 3:30 to eat and then he went right back asleep. I woke him up again at 7:30 this morning. Couldn't of asked for a more well-behaved baby. It is, however, only day 3, so we'll see how long he keeps this up. We're being optimistic.

What a beautiful day it was to spend with family. This was Phillip and I's last Easter as just a married couple. Next year we'll be a family of three. We are so excited to start this special journey together and feel so blessed that God has given us the opportunity. The smiles on our faces truly come from the inside out. We thank our Lord for living and dying for us and giving us hope of eternity with him.
