Sorry…life has been totally crazy! Aaron’s mom has been here for two weeks and that has been so helpful, but I still feel like I am running from one thing to the next. All that to say I am sorry that I have not posted more.
On monday, Eli went for his 4 month check up (really only 6 weeks old) and the doctor told us he is PERFECT! He is gaining weight at just the right pace and he is perfectly average for a 6-8 week old baby.
He is 21 1/4 inches long and 10 lbs. and 9 oz.
He is going between 6 – 8 hours at night between feedings which is so helpful for mommy. I am feeling much more normal now that I get somewhat regular sleep.
Also…Eli met the Groeling Family, minus Jeff. He was working. It was so great to see them. It had been since December of 2009 that we have seen them. They loved seeing Eli and were so great with him. If Eli grows to be half as great as these children, I will consider myself very lucky and blessed. Susie is the best mom I have ever met and I hope to be as much like her as possible.
Rebecca (2nd) and Leah (1st) were so gentle and traded him back and forth.
The Groelings were in our wedding 3 years ago. They are so special to me!
We are so blessed with great friends and family.
