Today Nick is eleven weeks old! The weeks are just flying by. He is smiling all the time! Mom and dad like to act and talk silly to get him to smile and try to get him to laugh. He squeals and coos, and is not afraid to show his displeasure if he's uncomfortable or hungry :)
Last weekend Aunt Krystyn and Uncle Zack were here. Saturday during the day they spent time with friends while mom and dad hung out at home with Nick. In the afternoon everyone went to Brandon's graduation party, where Nick was able to meet more of mom's family. Sunday morning mom and Aunt Krystyn made waffles and bacon, then mom and dad went to see Star Trek while Nick stayed with Aunt Krystyn and Uncle Zack. Sunday night we all celebrated dad and Aunt Krystyn's birthdays, and Uncle Zack grilled some delicious steaks and mom made garlic mashed potatoes. After cake and ice cream it was time for presents!
Monday morning Uncle Zack and Aunt Krystyn went home, and it was another busy week of daycare and work. Monday evening Grandma Audrey and Papa Norm came over to celebrate dad and Grandma Audrey's birthdays. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday were normal days. Today mom picked Nick up from daycare so dad could go buy mom and dad the new iPhones. Now mom and dad can take pictures AND video of Nick every day :) Tonight mom is going to a gallery event for the LAA while dad and Nick hang out at home.
This weekend is a busy one - Saturday mom and Nick are going to the Law School to help out with an LAA event. Sunday is dad's first Father's Day as a father! Brunch with dad's family, then dinner at home. This week is uneventful - mom and Nick have MNO on Wednesday. Then Friday Nick is taking his second trip to Pentwater for dad's cousin Tim's wedding! Very exciting to spend time with dad's family again :)
We think we're getting the hang of this parenting thing :) Nick seems like a happy, healthy baby. People will make comments like, oh he seems so alert, oh his neck is so strong! But Nick is our first baby, so we don't know any different :) We just try to keep him happy and healthy! We love our baby and we love being parents!
