Giving a shout out to all my hommies

Life around here is never boring around here. Looking back at our schedule, we have things going on pretty much every day. This isn't as big a deal when it was just Katherine and I, but now that David is here, we have realized we need to slow things down a bit. In our week, there is few days where he can just stay home all day long. So we are trying to figure out how to reschedule and cut a few things out so that we can maintain a life and have David be able to have a bit more consistency.

On the plus side, David is doing very well and is always ready to roll with things. As a PK, life is going to always have a bit of Chaos to it. It's amazing how well he does going through the gauntlet of admirers at church, or sleeping through rowdiness at youth nights. I am very glad that we started from the begginning by teaching David to sleep through noise.

He has continued to be a quick learner in many ways. As you can see from this picture, he is holding his head up quite well. He sometimes does it for an amazingly long time, especially if he is not wanting to fall asleep at nap time. One of the most appreciated things he has picked up is how to sleep through the night most of the time. He averages out at between 7 and 8 hours at night, which I can tell you is very nice, especially since he is only 9 weeks old. He is starting to move around a lot more in his "tummy time" and can throw himself around pretty well. Somehow, he will unwrap himself completely for some of his naps. Which is pretty amazing, since he is wraped pretty tight when you leave him, and then you pop in to check on him, and he is peacefully lying on top of his blankets. As winter approaches, we will have to make sure this habbit doesn't get him to cold.
