Baby Updates

For Leah's first year of life I had a baby calendar.  In that calendar I recorded a little something for every day for the first year.  It was such an enjoyable process to track her growth and development over that first year.  From time to time, I find myself looking back and reading through that calendar and I love remembering all those milestones. 

I've decided to do things a bit different this time with Asher.  I am still going to record things but I thought I'd put it here on this blog.  That way when the first year is up it will be easy for me to make a digi-scrapbook recording that first year.  Its a project that I want to do with Leah's first year but I know that it will be time consuming typing up all those days and weeks!  So here's week three & four.  And I'm hoping to also post pictures when I can and remember to take them!!

Week Three
Day 15 – April 22, 2011 – Today your big sister came back from Grandma’s house. You were weighed at your 2 week check up and weighed 8 lbs.
Day 16 – April 23, 2011 – Grandma & Grampa & Uncle Greg & Uncle Alex came and met you. 
Day 17 – April 24, 2011 – It’s Easter today and we took you to church.  You slept the entire time.
Day 18 – April 25, 2011 – Mommy had her first day by herself with two kids, it is a lot of work!
Day 19 – April 26, 2011 – We all went to SoulCare together and you did great!

Day 24 – May 1, 2011 – We think you are going through a growth spurt because you eat a lot!

Day 26 – May 3, 2011 – When you cry your sister says, “Make him be quiet, too noisy!”
Day 27 – May 4, 2011 – You have outgrown Newborn diapers and newborn sleepers – you are packing on the weight quickly!
