Merry Christmas

We want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!!! We are celebrating with Dave's family this year. We had hoped to make it to IL for Christmas Eve and back to OH for Christmas Day but with the weather in IL we decided to stay home.

Hopefully we will see those of you in IL before too long.

Ethan's 1st Month

Well we have made it through Ethan's first month. It has been crazy and hectic but is starting to calm down a little or at least at this moment it is.

We got back from our trip to IL last night. It was a crazy few days visiting with my mom and dad and Stacy and her family. I give Stacy a lot of credit. Emerson is a handful even without a little baby to take care. He very much loves the babies though. He likes to give hugs and kisses.

My mom was thrilled to have all her grandkids there at the same time. Hopefully it won't be long before we are all together again.

Even though Athalie is older than Ethan - he is definitely bigger than her. She felt as light as a feather compared to my big bruiser.

We went to the doctor today for his one month checkup. Today he weights 13 lbs 4 oz and is 23 1/2 inches tall. The doctor said he is off the charts but is proportiante so I guess that means he isn't fat just a big boy.

Ethan is getting big fast. We went to the pediatrician on Tuesday and he already weighs

12 lbs 2 oz

Can you believe it!!! What a chunk!!! Those 0-3 month clothes are going to be too small very soon!!!!

Otherwise we are doing pretty well. It is pretty unpredictable these days. Some days he is awake almost all day and other days he sleeps almost all day. Luckily the nights have been pretty consistent. If he eats around 10 or 11 he can make it through the night with only getting up 1-2 times. Can't complain about that!!!

Ethan and I will be making a trip to IL this week. We are going to my parents to visit. Stacy and her gang are there for the whole week. We will only be there Monday evening until Wednesday or Thursday. We are looking forward to meeting my new niece. She may be older but I have a feeling Ethan is bigger!!!
