Our First Trip to the Cabin as a Family of 3!

We spent last weekend with Chuck, Nicole, their dog, Keena and Pat at the cabin in Rabbit Ears. David had a great time going on walks in the evening and loved the cooler weather. Keena was great with him and just licked him (she's still a puppy, so not biting him was quite a feat!)
David loved listening to Grandma Pat tell him all about the cabin

Meeting Aunt Judy, Uncle Efrain and Cousin Stephanie

*** Go back to the post about meeting Dandad..the video is up now!***

My Aunt Judy and Uncle Efrain were up in Colorado for the week visiting their grand daughter Stephanie. We were able to hook up with them for an afternoon.

Vacation in Winter Park

Bill's parents have a time share in Winter Park and they have been going there since Bill was young. He has many wonderful memories there with his parents, sister, grandparents, and Chuck and his family. We went up for a few days and had a great time being with his parents and getting out of the heat!

Playing with Grandpa

Looking up at Grandma

Playing dominos with mom and dad!

Chillin' with Panda

Let's Play Catch-up

It's been awhile since we've posted pictures of David and given updates. So here are the latest stats:
*David was 10 weeks old last Friday (7/25) and weighed in at 9 lbs 9 ounces! He has more than doubled his weight in 2 months!

*David's sleeping has significantly improved thanks to the Miracle Blanket (Thank you Auntie Laura for telling us about it!). His biggest challenge with sleeping was his arms flailing about. The Miracle Blanket keeps his arms down and swaddles him warm and tight. It's been a life saver for him and for us. He's a whole new kid now that he is resting more (and so are his parents).

My Grandma made this for my Cabbage Patch Kids years ago. We just had to put it on David. He looks so adorable!

Still David's (and Dad's) favorite place to be!

Meeting Dandad!

On July 11, David and Dandad (Donna's dad) met at the airport. Bill got it all on video...check it out!

David had a wonderful time with Dandad (especially sleeping on his chest!)

Thank you for coming, Dandad! We can't wait to see you in October!

Our First Year in Pictures

We can't believe we've already been married a year! Sometimes it seems like much longer, as we have experienced so much together this year, and other times it seems like just yesterday. We have LOVED being married and are excited about this coming year with David as we grow as a couple and as a family!

A Must See Video of David

Just watch!

Happy 4th of July!

We took David to his first fireworks and he slept through them! He had fun before the sun went down just looking at all the people! He was cold so we wrapped him up in his Broncos blanket and he was perfectly content!

Here are some photos:

Why We Haven't Blogged Recently...

1:17 AM
Our new video camera has night vision which has enabled us to see if David is asleep or not without turning on any lights in our room. This is him about a week ago. Needless to say, we've been sleeping when he sleeps, which is during the day. We're working on shifting his days and nights. Right now, 'night time' for him is from about 1:30/2:00 AM until 10:00 AM. It's the right amount of time, just a few hours off!
We've managed to download recent pictures and will be posting them this week (hopefully tomorrow, we'll see how tonight goes).
For now, here are the latest stats:
*David weighs 8 pounds even as of Wednesday 7/3 which means he's gaining more than what is needed to be 'healthy'.
*When he's awake, he's been more and more responsive to us and our voices. He'll reach for his stuffed animals and loves looking at himself (and us) in the mirror.
*We are loving every moment with him and trying to take it all in!!
--David was awake most of today so we are hoping for more sleep tonight...maybe this pattern has finally shifted! PLEASE PRAY!
