We had all these big plans...
there was so much that we were going to get done over Daddy's 4 week vacation time. The boys were going to wrestle with him, and go to the park and the zoo, and take turns each week getting a Dad-and-Me day.
but all we're really doing is sitting around and waiting for Van to open his eyes so we can turn into big puddles of lovey goo. We're not getting anything done, and even the lack of dad-and-me time for the older kids isn't bugging them. They just want another turn holding the baby.
He's enthralled every single one of us. (also, after about 5 minutes straight, he gets a little annoyed about the flashbulb on the camera...)
We're starting to get into a schedule - and he's sleeping really well at night thank heaven. Doesn't go to sleep until around midnight but then he sleeps until 7 or 8 with just one wake-up in between. The mild sniffles that a few of us had when he was born seem to be going away with no sign of him getting sick (yay!) and as long as I stay down I'm also feeling really good. Overdid it a few days ago and really felt it the next day. Have been very careful since! Thanks for all your comments asking for more pictures of the cutie - because that's pretty much all we're taking pictures of... :)
