4th of July Weekend

Happy 4th of July weekend! Hard to believe this year is 1/2 over already - wow!

We've had a relaxing weekend so far. Yesterday, we ran a couple of errands, and had a family movie evening in the living room, because it is so hot outside. The heat index is over 100 degrees this weekend, and its miserable. Today, we went to church and now we're hanging out at home. Matt and Hendrix have been playing outside, but are taking a lot of breaks, because its so hot.

We don't have any plans for tomorrow, the 4th. We thought about going up to Perrysburg to Fort Meigs, but aren't sure. It depends on the temperature.

We're adjusting nicely to being a family of four. Jameson has been sleeping for about 3 hours at a time at night. I have no complaints about that, I don't remember Hendrix sleeping for that long at such a young age. It helps that we're bottle feeding him and I'm not in agony every time he's hungry, due to breast feeding. I am pumping, so he's still getting some breast milk, so that's good. We went to his 1 week doctor appointment on Friday. He weighs 7 lbs 15 oz (was 7 lbs 9 oz when we left the hospital), so weight gain is good. He hasn't gained any length yet, but I'm sure he will in the next few weeks.

Hendrix is handling being a big brother pretty well. He's showing a bit of jealousy, but that was to be expected. Despite the tantrums, he's being a great brother. We try to involve him in as much as possible, and have him help us "fetch" things we need, such a diapers, paci's, bottles, etc. The one thing he's not so good at right now is being gentle. We're working on it though. :)

Hendrix is just talking up a storm! He speaks in complete sentences and you can actually hold simple conversations with him. It's so cool! He's just way too big!!

Here's a picture of Jameson I just took a few minutes ago - he's 9 days old here. This past week has flown. I'm trying to cherish the moments, because I know they'll fly.

Have a safe and happy holiday, everyone!
