(Not so) Little Guy

Our little guy is already 6 weeks old!  It is going by so fast.  At one month he weighed in at 12 lbs. and had grown two inches since birth.  Curious, Joe and I weighed him again at almost 6 weeks and he was already up to 14 lbs.  It literally wears me out to hold him and carry him.  His super baby strength also makes him a handful.  He loves to arch his back and I worry sometimes that he is going to muscle his way right out of my arms.

Madison and Hayes are still big fans of Pierce.  It is nice to have helpers who will get diapers for me and hold him.  The big kids started school over a month ago and are loving it.  Hayes' teacher sent an email to us after the first week of school praising his obedience.  Madison is thrilled to be back with friends again and enjoys to read.

Joe is submitting his residency applications (only about 35) so we have no idea where we will be this time next year.

Now that I have had 6 weeks to recover, I absolutely have to finish my thesis, but I lost the really good momentum I had last year.  I am hoping that once I start reading about dams again my fervor for them will return.

He is a big guy! I can't believe how big he looks in that picture sitting on the bed. He is a cutie. Good luck getting the dam momentum.
