Wyatt just slept from 8:45pm - 4am!! WOW! That's just over 7 hours! I hope this is a trend and not a fluke! It's a great start to the weekend for sure :)

On another note - his belly button continues to be a small issue. The pediatric surgeon on Tuesday sutured it and put silver nitrate on it in hopes of getting this growth to fall off. Last night there were a couple layers that fell off and what is left is a lot smaller. It was about the size of a pea when this all began and now it is half the size. We go back this Tuesday for a followup visit with the pediatric surgeon. He'll examine it and decide whether or not anothe silver nitrate treatment will do the trick, or if he will need to do a small surgical procedure to get it off. More to follow...(Thankfully, none of it seems to bother him.)

Meeting up with Friends

Yesterday we had a great afternoon getting together with some of the people who took our Lamaze class with us - we had a potluck and were able to visit with all the new babies. And, of course the parents could swap stories/advice, etc. Here are some pictures of the four little ones before we left - Wyatt is the youngest by about 7 weeks. But, he's keeping his own!!

And here are a few shots, just for kicks that didn't turn out so well...

Random notes

Here are just a few random notes and happenings...

1. Poor Caleb was stung twice a few days ago - once on his eyelid and another time on his temple. For the past few days it has looked like someone clocked him in the face. After 3 days the swelling and puffiness is FINALLY starting to fade.

2. Our lovely red microwave has died. We're hoping to get another this weekend - it's amazing how often you use the just seems that now that we don't have one I've wanted to use it more often - I really wanted microwave popcorn the other night, but that wasn't going happen. Then, I was going to heat up some fried rice for Caleb in the microwave and that wasn't going to happen either. I'm still trying to figure out how we went about 8 months without a microwave when we were in the one bedroom apartment a few years back.

3. This is an exciting weekend - Sunday is the Jacksonville Jaguars first game! I feel bad that the Indianapolis Colts will be beginning the season with a loss...

4. And here is a picture of Caleb watching Wyatt while I went to take a shower. Like Father like son, I guess...

7 weeks! (mostly filled with smiles)

It's amazing how quickly time passes~ Here are some pictures of little man at 7 weeks old.

This picture is taken in my office at work. I've rigged up a little contraption to the oscilating fan so that as the fan moves, his toys pass in front of his face. Both toys hanging make a sound - one is a bell that rings, the other is a rattle. When he's calm (usually after eating) I'll place him in his chair in front of the fan and he's just follow the toys with his eyes. Every now and then he'll reach up to touch the toys and the bell will ring which makes him smile. He's even starting kicking when he's happy. Today he occupied himself with those toys for about 30 minutes!

This caught my eye today in the Orlando Sentinal...Moms Get Fit! I'm still trying to figure out if my husband read this section last or carefully placed the Health & Fitness section on top of the newspaper pile so I would see it...I'm leaning toward coincidence. Regardless, I may just try to win!
P.S. And...sometimes he gets mad...poor's hard being a baby.
