BIG developments!!!

Posted on March 24th, 2007 by Kymberlie.

hand comparisonPhew…it’s been a long time since we’ve had time to post to the blog. Thanks for the gentle reminders, everyone. Elliot’s gone through a couple of growth spurts, which means a few things: #1-he was eating constantly, #2-when he wasn’t eating he was uncomfortable (and so we were holding him), and #3- we were all getting very little sleep. We seem to have gotten over those humps and survived. The tough stuff has been rewarded with some really exciting developments. For example, Elliot now focuses on, and even seems to enjoy his mobile! He also smiles and talks to us once in a while with funny gurgles and giggles. The biggest (literally) development is his weight gain. At 5.5 weeks he was 11lbs 12oz (which means he was gaining just about a pound a week…just like his mama did when she was an infant!). At 7 weeks now we can only guess that he’s over 13lbs. The evidence is in all his precious chub! See the photos of his hands to compare.
Elliot’s Grammee Sammee (Kymberlie’s mom) came to visit us this week. She has given us much needed relief by insisting on holding him nearly all the time. And, she babysat last night so Thomas and I could go out for a few hours and have a nice dinner together. Thanks Grammee!

Check out new videos of Grammee and Elliot playing. We’ve also posted lots of new photos from month two here and some photos from Grandpa Alan’s visit here. Enjoy!

    What a handsome little guy! He’s just beautiful! Thanks for allowing us to enjoy him in this way!

    I just opened the blog to see how big Elliott has gotten. He is so adoreable and I can’t wait to see him. I hope he is sleeping more and you are too. It isn’t easy to lose all that sleep and I’m sure glad his grandmother came to help. You sounded a little discouraged last Sunday. He looks like his mom-no doubt about that! Kiss him for me. Love, Aunt Patti

    Thanks, the pictures are wonderful. TC, I have one of you that looks just like Elliot in the “grin” photo. He is more precious all the time. It was good to “meet” Kymberlie’s mom. What a wonderful family.

    I know this is no suprise, but I just wanted to share with everyone that Elliot likes to boogie. Last night we were hanging out and when TC put the music on I swear that he was dancing and turned into happy grooving baby. I can’t wait to see what he can do when he can hold his head up on his own for more than a few seconds. (I am officially adding a request for a dancing baby video.)

    Adorable pictures. I loved the ones with him and his Grammee.

    Best wishes to you all.
