Big Boy

My little guy is now 15 pounds!!!  Well, almost...he weighed in at 14 pounds 15 1/2 ounces yesterday at the Doctor.  I think his new formula is working - although it took quite a bit of effort to get there.  He's pretty sensitive and we have to get just the right dilution so we are weighing out all of his formula powder on a gram scale to make sure he's getting the exact right amount.  But, it's totally worth it.  I have my happy little man back which is soooo nice because he was pretty miserable there for awhile.

 I really don't know what to do about this hair - any suggestions are appreciated!

On another note, I'm so glad it's Friday.  It has been a busy week!  We saw 7 Doctor's and 3 therapists this week.  Luckily, the majority of these we saw all in one day at Children's Hospital at one of the clinics that Parker goes to there.  The good thing is, we are winding down on all of the follow up appointments and initial appointments with new Doctors.  We only have few Doctors to see in March and I can say I am ready for a break (as I'm sure the grandparents are as well since they usually end up watching Alexa or coming along).    I'm also very excited because this weekend Paul and I get to go on a date!  Paul's birthday is on Valentine's Day and I knew it would be hard to find a nurse that night so instead we are going out tomorrow afternoon.  I think we're going to go to a movie and I can't remember the last time we did that.  We have definitely learned to appreciate the little things :o)


  1. Sara,
    You and Paul are extremely special people!!! Parker has been blessed with the both of you; as you have been blessed with him. His smile is contagious; I can't stop smiling looking at his pics. We continue to pray for you all; we love your family. If there is anything we can do, please let us know.

  2. Holy cow! He is almost bigger than Audrey! I agree ... he couldn't have better parents and that smile. Wowsers!!! Enjoy the date and the time together. Happy Birthday, Paul!

  3. Parker and Audrey are SO cute! I love how P is folding his hands in these pictures... and, he has such a great smile!

    I hope you and Paul enjoyed your date!
