Hunter is now 2 1/2 weeks old...

Time goes by so quick but it feels as if he has always been a part of our life. He is doing great. We just took him to his 2nd pediatrician appointment and he already weighs 7lbs 110z! He is definitely a good eater :) He is going to be a big boy just like his daddy the doctor says. He is also going to be super strong. Hunter can already roll from his back to his side. He can even hold his head up for at least 4 minutes at a time and he even likes to kick off your arm to move himself up. And I know this sounds crazy, but last night his binky fell out of his mouth and he put it back in his mouth all by himself. Dwight & I still can't believe it!
Hunter has had a ton of visitors...he's a popular little guy. His grandmas, grandpa, great grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins & family friends have all stopped by since we have been home from the hospital. His uncle Aaron has also been on leave for the last two weeks and his visited him several times. Him and his fiance race into the house to try to be the first to hold him. It's so cute. I am really happy that Aaron has had a chance to see Hunter while he is this small. But he just left for Iraq this morning so Good Luck Uncle Aaron! Stay safe and Hunter can't wait to see you again.

Happy Birthday Hunter!

Our sweet little boy arrived on July 22nd at 2:17pm. He is absolutely perfect! He weighed 7lbs 7oz and was 20.75inches long. The delivery went smoothly and I had a great doctor. Recovery has been a little tough but Dwight has been amazing. He has taken care of everything for baby Hunter and I. But now that we are home, we are finally starting to get on a schedule. Hunter eats about every 2.5 hours...he has a huge appetite! Then he sleeps for most of the day. He is such a happy baby. He rarely cries. If he does, we know its either for more food or a diaper change. Dwight and I love being parents. We are very blessed to have this little one a part of our lives.
