the past 7 weeks

You may have heard about a cute boy name Jude. Well, here he his! Baby boy is 7 weeks old! 

In the past 7 weeks...

  • we found out Mr. Man is in the 98th percentile. (That means he's bigger than 98% of babies out there.)
  • he's already growing out of some of the 3 month clothes we have for him. (Newborn sizes were kind-of a joke.)
  • Jude has celebrated his first Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years! (Although he slept through Christmas morning, and ringing in the New Year. He must be a baby.)
  • my sweet little guy slept for 7 hours straight one night! 7 hours!!! (It was a one time occurance, however. I'm just thankful when he does 3-4 hours normally.)
  • little Jude dude smiles all the time! Melts my heart even at 2:30 AM. And he has started to "talk" to us. (Although I guess we can't count "goo" as his first word.)
It's crazy how different life can be with 3 instead of 2. But it's also crazy how natural it felt.He fits just perfectly into our family and we are loving every minute with him. 


  1. I love that you are a mom & such a cute one. (I love that your parents love being grandparents too - look at those faces :). I am so happy he is here & that you are your own little family. Don't you just love it? Wasn't life so BORING before? Happy New Year. Here's to 2012.

  2. Wow time is going by so fast, i can't believe how big he already is. So happy for you Gretchen, you are such a good mommy.

  3. Go Jude! Fat babies are the way to go. Also: thanks for the pho recconendation! rice king noodle was good but service was so bad!
