So, we survived another week! We enjoyed having my parents here and can't wait for the Davidsons to arrive on Sunday.
Mike was able to take four weeks off to be at home with Walt and me, which has been great...I am already dreading when he has to go back. It has been so much fun getting to know Walt together...and between the two of us we're just managing to take care of all his needs!
Testing out the baby gym
Walt loves being swaddled, as long as we're sure to leave his hands free (which sort of defeats the purpose, I know)
Chilling in the papasan chair (thanks, Blackwelders!)
Getting ready for his first trip to see the pediatrician. (During his 15-minute appointment, Walt managed to pee on the nurse and the doctor, as well as the scale and most of the floor.)
Relaxing with Grand-dad
Our little family

Our friends Russ and Nikki showed up on our doorstep with the fixings for an amazing brunch last Saturday. We had sausage, eggs and fruit...and homemade waffles with strawberry-rhubarb compote and marscapone--YUM! The weather (and Walt) cooperated and we were able to have a leisurely meal on the back deck.
Now that we're feeling up to it, we've started taking Walt on some mini-excursions just to get used to leaving the house with him. The first--a quick trip to the Marina last Saturday to run a few errands. Success--Walt slept snug in the Moby the entire time!
