This weekend we all plan to relax and catch up on sleep. Daddy doesn't have to work on Saturday so we might run a few errands, we even talked about insulating the basement (if we can figure out how to do that!). We also might attempt church for the first time on Sunday, fingers crossed he does a good job!

Mommy and daddy are pretty sure Gus is going to have blue eyes. They have gotten lighter and lighter over the last two weeks. They still have several months to change color, but it looks like daddy won the eye gene pool battle thus far.
Mommy has been playing photographer with Gus today. We are trying to get a good picture to use on a birth announcement. We like this one because Gus is smiling just a little. He has the cutest smile. Last night, daddy was tickling Gus' neck with his whiskers and Gus kept on smiling. It was so cute.

You can see that Gus has already been growing so much! He is starting to get a double chin! By the time we visit Iowa in July for the first time, he will probably be very very chubby! This picture is from when Gus was twelve days old.
In the pictures below, you can see all the people that have come to visit Gus lately.

Gus has been getting lots of nice gifts from so many people! Everyone has been so generous and thoughtful. In the picture above, you can see a corner of the beautiful quilt his aunt Kathy C. made him! How did she know he loves frogs so much? Thanks!
Here is the little guy sleeping in my arms right now as I type. Can you believe it? Gus is now ten days old already! Today, May 23rd, was supposed to be his due date (boy am I glad I am not still pregnant right now!). We went to the doc today for a check up and he weighs 8 pounds 1 ounce and is nearly 22 inches long! He is in the 90 percentile for height! Hopefully he'll be tall like his daddy.

We had another appointment today and found out that we will become parents on Monday! I am going to be induced on Sunday evening, and should be a mom by Monday. It is a few weeks early, but baby is ready and needs to come out, so it is time. Just thought we'd pass along the good news! Please keep us in your prayers~
