This week started off with an unplanned stop at the shopping mall.
My parents were looking for a particular restaurant but didn’t realize it was in the mall. Everyone was too tired and cranky to find something else so we went in. The funny thing was the restaurant had closed. Guess that’s what happens when you trust those little rectangle boxes that my parents seem to think contain the voice of God or something. Ridiculous.
Anyway I wasn’t fond the shopping mall. I couldn’t sleep.
I already have a hard time settling down in the evening and this place just made it worse.
It’s nothing like the peace and quiet of mommy’s arms.
I also had a doctor’s appointment. Not crazy about those either but I’m growing a lot.
I also got my passport card although I don’t remember it at all.
Every morning my big brother comes out to cuddle me. We all lay around with mommy for about 30 minutes. It’s one of my favorite parts of the day.
Last but not least, I began my road-warrior training. I have some pretty cool mentors. Our first trip went really well. I’ll have to tell you about it next week.
Mommy has been making my brothers “workout” lately. She says things like, “If you can sit around and play video games then you can workout.” She’s funny. It’s fun to watch my brother do jumping jacks and even more fun when he lunges with me!
Look at that silly face!
Mommy’s “21 Day Rest Rule” is over. Now we can go on walks!
Daddy organized the “garage” of our RV because we are getting ready to leave soon. I can’t wait!
Last but not least I got my first bath. My mommy and daddy put me in a robe afterwards and went crazy taking pictures. I feel like a superstar!

I went to church for the first time on Easter. I don’t really remember it because I slept the entire time in the baby carrier mommy was wearing. I did get to wear a snazzy suit complete with a bow tie though.
My big big brother wore this same suit at my mommy’s college graduation.
I don’t think it will still fit him.
While my big brothers colored eggs I also got to wear a bib my Great Aunt Christine sent me.
My big brothers went on a cruise with my Weewa and Papaw. Luckies! My big brother was really sad to leave me.
Meow Cow, our cat, wanted to go on the cruise too. I think he wanted to get away from me. Most of the time he won’t even look at me and has only sniffed my head a few times before sulking away. I don’t think he likes me very much. Mommy says he hasn’t come to her once since I’ve been born. If you ask me he seems like a grumpy old cat but my mommy and daddy say he’s the best cat ever. I’m sure he’ll come around.
My big big brother turned 14 this week. Wow!!!! FOURTEEN!!!!! Mommy says it just feels like yesterday that he was my size.
I had my first doctors appointment and I had gained all my birthweight back plus 2 oz, weighing in at 8 lbs and 14 oz!
My mommy rested with me all week because her midwife told he she has a “21 day rest rule”. Daddy is taking good care of her. I’m glad because cuddling with mommy is my favorite thing in the world.
I had a great first week. I took my first breath of oxygen, saw light, and finally got to stretch my arms and legs. Wow, that felt good. But the…
I had a great first week. I took my first breath of oxygen, saw light, and finally got to stretch my arms and legs. Wow, that felt good. But the best part was meeting my mommy, daddy, and brothers.
My mommy was the first to hold me after 19 hours of back labor followed and 1.5 hours of pushing. (Sorry mom, I know you wanted me to turn anterior but I just couldn’t.) Her belly was so warm and squishy. I recognized her heartbeat right away. She kept smiling at me and crying. This is us an hour after being born.
My dad is awesome too. His hands are so big and I feel so secure against his chest. He was right there when I was born, helping mommy sit up. Mommy says Daddy never once left here side while I was being born. She says she could’t have done it without him. I can already tell they make a good team.
My big brother instantly fell head of over heels in love with me.
My big big brother was a little more nervous to hold me but he came around and realized I wasn’t going to poop on him. Not yet anyway. He he!
I’ve spend the majority of my week sleeping with my mommy and daddy. Mommy says her midwife gave her a “21 day rule” which means she can’t do much for three weeks. Mommy also said it’s been “dreamy” to slow down and bond with me. I agree.
I am one happy camper especially when I’m being held.
Here I am 4 days old!
I also took my first car ride. Good thing I liked it. Mommy and daddy say I have a lot of miles ahead of me.
