7 week old pics

Little man is now seven weeks old and a whopping 13 pounds! I took him to the doctor yesterday because he's been having some weird stomach issues, but we're hopeful that he'll start feeling better really soon. His pediatrician thinks that he has a stomach hernia (like father, like son!) so I'm taking him in for a sonogram in the next day or so to see what we need to do next. She also wants me to switch him from Nutramigen to Neocate formula to see if that will decrease the amount of diarrhea diapers he has on a daily basis. If it doesn't then she wants to do an Upper GI to make sure his digestive system is developing properly. Poor thing has had a rough time with his belly, but he is still an amazing baby and I love him so much!!!! Please pray for him to completely heal soon!

Sleepy Boy

I like to call this his "How you doin'?" look

Trying to stay awake while I talk to him :)

New outfit....but I had just changed his diaper so it's not snapped or buttoned. It looked super cute on him when it is on right!

6 week old pics

Another week has flown by. Sweet boy still had some projectile vomit issues this week so I started him on some acid reflux medicine. Hopefully he will start keeping down all of his feedings soon!!!
Just like Eden, he looks so good in navy blue.
This picture cracks me up. It looks like he is thinking about something important. And check out that round belly and thighs!!! He is getting super bubbly and cute!
Two seconds later he is falling alseep again! :)
I sat him on the couch next to Big D the other night and the window was open so he just sat there and stared for like 30 minutes. So cute!

5 week old pics

I'm a few days late posting David's 5 week old pictures but things have been a bit crazy around here. Big D was in Austin last weekend for South By Southwest so Baby D decided it would be a good time to start throwing up after every feeding! I ended up in the ER with him on Saturday so that they could give him some fluids and make sure he wasn't dehydrated, so after some blood work and anti-nausea medicine, they sent us home. David got home from his trip on Sunday and that's when Ella started throwing up. I got SUPER nervous that we were dealing with the stomach flu but she only threw up a couple of times that night and then she was fine.....praise the Lord! However, over the next few days we all got head colds which meant lots of coughing and sneezing. :( We're still dealing with that mess, but I THINK we are on the downhill side of it all so I'm hopeful that this coming week will be much easier. To wrap up the week, I took Big D to the hospital on Thursday for a scheduled hernia repair surgery. He did great and is now at home recovering. All of that occurred in just one short week so you should now understand why I haven't had time to post! :) However, here are some pics I took to remember week #5.

Baby D and MoMo

This is his favorite seat in our house. In fact, he sleeps in his bouncy seat almost every single night.

"Talking" to Grandma Hall

He wore himself out talking :)
I definitely want to take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to my mother-in-law. It's never been easy for me to accept the fact that my mom lives over a thousand miles away in Indiana, but if there was one person I would want by my side on a daily basis who wasn't my would be Linda. She CONSTANTLY takes care of me and my kiddos. She watches them when I have doctor's appointments, cleans my house while I am gone so that I can rest when I get home, cooks us dinner, picks them up for random outings so that I can have some peace and quiet for a few hours, lets them spend the night so that they can have a change in scenery and even demands that I take a nap instead of using my alone time to clean or do laundry! Now THAT is a treat!!!! I truly appreciate ALL you do for me Linda. You are a wonderful mother-in-law and grandma and I THANK YOU!!!!
Precious little man

His sweet little cheeks have filled out so much and I love them!!! :)

One month old pics

Little man is now a month old. CRAZY!!!! He pretty much eats, sleeps and poops. In fact, the eating every two hours routine is killing me so today I bought some rice cereal and put some in his bottle. I'm sure he is way too young to start that, but I need sleep!!!!
My babies
Deep in thought :)

Dream it!
Big yawn
These are the LONG legs that kicked my ribs ALL of the time!!!
Yes, I am a terrible mother. When I am starving and can't wait to eat my lunch, I prop his bottle up with a blanket so that he can feed himself while I eat.
Sweet Clara feeding him dinner! She is ready for a baby of her own!
Auntie Ashley is VERY helpful. She comes over and visits us a lot and always jumps right in to help me out with the kiddos.

And now for some of my very favorite pictures of David resting his hand on his Auntie's arm...............


I just love it!

Mommy's Little Man
Love you Auntie Ashley!!!! Can't wait to spend the weekend with you!

My Little Princess

Is there anything sweeter than watching your husband love on your daughter??? I really don't think so. I look forward to the day when David will truly bond with Baby David, but right now it is just super cool to see him encourage, love and teach our girls what it means to be loved by their father.

This past Sunday, he took Ella to the "Daddy and Daughter Princess Ball" at church and she LOVED it!!! It seriously makes me want to cry when I think about how big she looks in these pictures!

Sweet Angel

One of my favs...a must save for her wedding day!

David took Ella on a shopping date to buy a tiara and some new rings. He is an awesome dad.
Putting on her new ring
Love it
Love it even more
I tried to curl her hair but it will not hold curl!!! So we went with the "Nicole Kidman" look from the Grammys. She looked gorgeous! :)
They got to sit in a carriage at the ball and have their picture taken. I can't imagine how excited Ella was!
