7 weeks old

The sweet son is now 7 weeks old - we can hardly believe how time is flying and how big he's getting. We were at the doctor this week and he weighed in at a whopping 11 pounds 11.5 ounces and 23.5 inches...and to think we were headed to the lactation consultant later that day because I was concerned that he wasn't nursing long enough! The boy knows how to eat and he does it FAST!
Here's the sweet, growing boy:

This week my mom was in town, so he got lots of time with his Meme and I was able to leave the house a couple of times without the boy (first time leaving him with someone other than his dad - I did feel a bit anxious!). She lives in Vegas and this was her first time up to visit.

In addition to the visit with my mom, we had a busy week - we had lunch with my Nike teammates on Wednesday and we went out to sushi with my mom on Thursday. He was an angel baby and slept right through both lunches! I don't want to say it too loud, but we've got ourselves a good little guy - he's a good eater, sleeper and all around super cute and cuddly. We feel like the luckiest parents around. We celebrated his cousin's 11th birthday - his first birthday party, although we forgot to bring the camera!, got a visit from Great Grandma, went to the doctor and lactation and went to New Seasons Market. We also took the Bjorn out for a spin a couple of times - it's been so nice here in Portland (sunny, but cold) that we needed to get outside for a bit of Vitamin D. He'd been in the car seat so much, that I felt bad putting him back in for a walk and the Bjorn worked just perfectly. I was able to walk (working on getting those last five pounds off!), we were both able to get some fresh air and sun and the boy was able to take a snooze. Poor guy was so bundled because I didn't want him to get cold, that I think he was actually too warm by the end of the walk! And yes, that is us in the bathroom for the self portrait!

And here's one final picture for your viewing pleasure...this was the boy, exhausted after hanging with his dad all Sunday - boy does he love that...and yes, Aa totally dressed him that day!
