Growing Fast!

After having a bit of a slow start, David is really growing quickly now! He will be seven weeks old tomorrow, which is a little hard to believe. I don't know how much he weighs, but he's suddenly outgrown his newborn diapers, his smallest onesies, and his newborn sleepers. He's getting nice pudgy creases in his thighs & upper arms. He's turning into a handsome little chub-chub!

As you can see, he really enjoyed our 4th of July celebrations! He was dressed for the occasion, in a red romper that says, "Future Home Run Slugger," and red, white & blue socks that have "Mommy's Cutie" printed on the ankle.

He is more alert at times now, and coos and babbles and smiles at us. I was finally able to capture one of his smiles with the camera; he was having a conversation with Grandma and thought it was funny.

I am so thankful to have the opportunity to stay home with the kids. If I worked outside the home, I'd be heading back to work this week & putting David in day care. It's a nearly-constant financial struggle to live on one income & pay back our student loans, but I wouldn't trade this time at home with the kids for anything!
