As the song by Jack Johnson goes, "It's always better when we're together."

You don't tug on Superman's cape...

You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger
And you don't wake a sleeping baby!! 

So, yeah, I edited the song a little there, but it's solid advice!

Wow! The past sixteen days have been a complete and utter whirlwind. At the moment, Nate is asleep in his new swing. Matt and I went out today and found a swing to help with our little man. He has been somewhat fussy the past few days and we were looking for something to help calm him. I think he is going through another growth spurt because he eats, fusses, sleeps, fusses, eats, get the picture. This cycle will go on for a few hours until his belly is full and he's ready to sleep for real. If I counted correctly (which is highly unlikely given the lack of sleep I've had lately) he ate around 8-9 ounces of milk last night over a 2 hour period. He can be a little piggy at times! So, let me think. What have we been up to lately? Matt and I have been eating, sleeping, changing diapers, and feeding Nate. Nate has been eating, sleeping, pooping, and growing like a weed. He is the only person in this house who is well rested! :-)  He is getting pretty long and today I noticed that he'll probably outgrow his bassinet soon. I will admit, I'm not ready for him to get so big yet! I know it's going to happen, but still! Here are some pictures of our adventures over the past few weeks. Enjoy!

Nate got to meet Cousin Indy.  As you can tell by the face, Indy wasn't so sure what to think of Nate.

 He is NOT a fan of sponge baths!

I couldn't get the picture to rotate, but here is Nate listening to his dad read to him about hernias.  The doctor told us to put him in the sun to help with the jaundice.

 I love this picture!

 Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

 Moose is a good big brother. He doesn't like it when Nate cries. Moose will start to whine and will go to check on Nate.

At times he will hold his own bottle!

He has a hard life! This has become his favorite way to sleep when he's not swaddled.
