1 Month Old!!!!

I can 't believe it's been a month! Well, actually, almost 6 weeks now that I am finally getting around to updating the blog. It really has been an amazing experience and we are so fortunate to have such a good baby.
Every one's first question is, "How is he sleeping?" Well, I have to brag, he always gives us 3 hour stretches at night, but lately he has been throwing in 4 and 5 hour stretches here and there. The night leading into Mother's Day, Bob put him down at 11:30pm and he woke up at 4:00am. It was amazing!!!! I had gone to bed at 11, so 5 hours of sleep was enough to make me feel like a brand new woman!
We had a nice Mother's Day that started with brunch with Bob's family and then ended with a walk in Lincoln Park down by the lake. Bob spoiled me with amazing gifts and made it a great day for all of us.

Last week we went to the doctor for his month (or 5 week) check-up. Charlie is up to 11lbs 1oz and 23 inches long. He is shaping up to be a tall boy! Everything looked great and we are continuing to learn and adjust everyday to his changing needs.

Hope you enjoy these pics!



On the way to brunch for Mother's Day...He is so cool













We had a wonderful visit by Todd and Laura, our friends from Nashville. They were in town for a little get away and to see the Cubs play the Cardinals. It was so nice to see them and get to hang out. Charlie was a big fan of his new friends.
