One and a half weeks

Little Barty is about a week and a half old now, and is just about the sweetest thing you have ever seen. He's a very mellow little guy so far and doesn't cry much. You know he must be really in pain or mad about something if he really gets going. This is a welcome change from Sayer who cried for about an hour at every feeding. When he's awake and not eating, he basically just sits there and looks around. He has the softest, most kissable cheeks. I love them. I love to just hold him and look at him and snuggle him. I really just can't get enough of him and his precious-ness. Nate has been so great to take the kids to park, and since his parents have been here, taking them to the zoo and toys r us. It has been really nice for me to have time to spend with Bart, without the boys running around like crazy children, which we definitely still have our fair share of. But I am trying to savor the quiet moments while I have them.

In the last week, Bart has had his first (and second) baths (in which he immediately went poo both times), had his first outings to the park, his first subway ride (tucked safely away in the ergo so as not to breath or be touched by anything nasty), met neighbors and friends and nana and papa. He has also been so nice to his mommy with his awesome eating skills, as well as only waking up once a night, which is fabulous. I just hope he keeps it up.

We have been busy packing up and saying goodbye to friends. We are moving to UT for the summer, and then are coming back for in the fall for what we think will be our last year in the city. :( So here are some precious pictures of the little dude, to hold you over until we are settled in UT.

Right after I took this picture, he pooed in the towel

He loves to snuggle with nana! (and nana loves to snuggle with him!!)


Isn't he precious?? I love him.

Morgan he's darling!! And I'm completely jealous that he's only getting up once a night! I hope he keeps that up too! Maybe you can have him come over and have a little chat with Gavin about cutting his mom some slack during the night :). Enjoy every minute of his sweetness!

What a cutie! Congratulations--he looks like quite a charmer. We should all get together when you all are back in UT. Have you been the sweet tooth fairy yet? I think you all would like it.
