.life with Thomas.

It's not that I don't have time to blog- I technically do have the time when Thomas is napping, I just choose to use it differently {like for napping too!}.  Our little guy is 5 weeks old today!  And while I am still mostly in a state of fogginess from lack of sleep, it does seem to be getting better or maybe I am just getting used to it?  Either way,  things have started to settle down a bit. 


Thomas is such a sweet baby!  We feel so blessed to have him in our family!  He is starting to show his little personality just a bit and spends more time awake during the day, which i love!  At his one month appt. this week, he weighed 9 lbs. 3 oz, so he is REALLY growing- especially considering that he was down to just 6 lbs. during all of his jaundice and hospital tours!  I already had to put away some of the teeny tiny clothes that we had to buy since nothing fit him when we got home!  No more onesies for 5-8lb. babies.  He has finally grown into some of his 0-3 month clothes, although most of them are still pretty big on him. And he is still in newborn diapers, but not for too much longer.


Here are a few pictures from the past few weeks:
We get this look a lot :) Bath time!

Thomas gets LOTS of kisses from mama...

And Daddy...

He loves to put his hands up by his head {which is how he was in my belly on every ultrasound}

And enjoys playing on his back and tummy!
He no longer fits in this little outfit:( 

Oh, and he gets a REALLY big tummy after he's eaten!
Well, that's a bit of what's been going on...there is so much more that i could share, but i think i might go read for a bit before Thomas wakes up to eat again!  We are going to try to go to the Good Friday service at our church tonight {hopefully he will sleep right through it} and stop by starbucks with our thermoses to get free coffee for Earth Day! All in all, it should be a good night!
