Saturday Morning

My beautiful family! Luke, Drake and Josey. :-)
Drake slept until 7:00 this morning! We were so impressed with our little man. He woke up one time in the night (around 4:00) and I just put his paci back in his mouth and he went back to sleep. I hope he isn't teasing us and tonight he'll only sleep 4 hours! Anyway, at 7:00 we got up and I fed him (he hadn't eaten since 7:45 last night), then we played in the living room. Here is a video of him this morning.

That boy loves his paci! And I love it when he makes those little noises.
Today is going to be a busy day. This morning I am going to a shower for Anna Hendrix. They are having a little boy....Micheal Lee. Then this afternoon we are all going to a Sunday School social out at the Hertzfeld farm. It should be a really fun afternoon and evening!
I need some advice from all you mothers out there!!
I have been working out for 2 weeks now and have hardly lost ANY weight! I don't know what to do! The other problem is...since I'm nursing I'm hungary ALL THE TIME! It's worse than when I was pregnant! I can tell that the working out is making me look smaller b/c I am getting more toned; but the weight just isn't coming off like I thought it would. What can I do??? HELP!

Almost 2 Months Old

We finally got internet back at our house!! I have been so "out of the loop" since Drake was born and I have been a stay-at-home mom. It's been miserable not having internet access here. But...I'm okay now. We got it back!!

Well, a lot has happened since the last time I posted on my blog. Drake will be 2 months old this Thursday. He is growing up so fast. It seems like he changes every day. He is precious. I seriously fall in love with him more and more each day.

Here are a few things that he has been doing lately....

-He has been consistantly sleeping 7 hours a night for the past week! He usually sleeps from 9:00 4:00. Luke and I are loving it....hopfully it lasts!!

-He has started smiling when we talk to him. It's so precious! I can't wait till I can catch him doing it on camera.

-He has also stated laughing a little. At least that's what I think he's doing.

-He is getting better at keeping his head steady.

-He is starting to have more control over his hands and feet. I'm pretty sure he still doesn't know what they are though.

-At his last appointment (2 weeks ago) he weighed 13 pounds and was 22 3/4 inches long.

Drake, you are such an amazing addition to our family. I do not know what life would be like without you. You bring us so much joy. We pray that you will grow up to be a strong Godly man. We love you so much


This is us with my doctor (Dr. Sellars) at my 6 week check-up. We love him!!
