One Month Old

A Child of God

These pictures are all from Walter's Baptism last Sunday. Thank you to the friends and family that were able to make it! We appreciate your love and support more than you know.

Walter had his 4 week checkup yesterday. He was 21 inches (30%) long and weighed in at 10.8 pounds (75%). He is short and chubby- he has packed on over 3 pounds since birth! Definitely my hungry little boy- I am nursing so he keeps me very busy... Such a good baby though. We sure do love him. He really does complete our family (and by complete, I mean complete with a capital 'C')... Three kids in less than 4 years is my limit for sanity and patience. ;)

3 Weeks Old!

I love these little leg warmers!

 Hazel and Gus constantly fight over who gets to feed Wally.

 Hazel pumping like Mama.

 Starting to hold up his head! And I swear I've gotten a few smiles out of the little dude too...

 Cousin Avery and Wally.

 Josh and Brandon took the boys to monster trucks this week.

Nap Time!

Josh took a picture of us all napping yesterday. The kids are just addicted to me! If one is by me, they all want to be. The addition of Wally has definitely started to bring out a just a little bit of jealousy in the older two...

Gus went to the eye doctor yesterday. He did really well! No changes, everything looks good. He wears his glasses well, uses the bifocal, and when he wears the lenses his eye doesn't cross. No plans for change, just a 6 month check up again this summer. Hazel does have an appointment scheduled for May since she will be 2 and what Gus has can be hereditary. We have not noticed anything with her eyes, but it is better to be safe than sorry.

Wally had a 2 week weigh in yesterday too. He has gained 1 pound and 10 ounces in just under 2 weeks!!!! He is a house! He left the hospital on January 28th at 7 pounds 2 ounces, and on February 10th he weighed in at 8 pounds 12 ounces! He has his one month well baby check up in a few weeks.

Love and miss you all!

First Real Bath

On Tuesday, Wally got his first REAL bath! He actually really liked it, he never really cried.

 Wally being his usual wonderful self.

 Gus really wanted me to take this picture... He goes to the eye doctor later today so I'll post an update on his eyes soon.

Only the cutest big sister in the whole world!

Daddy gave Wally a sponge bath. Good job daddy- even though Wally wasn't a big fan!

Afterward Wally was a little freaked out- "What did you guys just do to me!"

Movie night!

Although I didn't get any pictures, Gma and Papa D were here last weekend to meet Wally. They took Hazel and Gus back to Iowa this week so that I could adjust to going back to work and we could bond with Wally alone for a few days. They are coming back today, and Trish, Steve and the girls are visiting too, so we are very excited for the weekend. I sure did miss those two this week!
