Settling in at home.....and loving every minute of it!

We can't believe how fast the days go by! We are working to settle in at home and enjoying this amazing weather we have been given in February! We came home on Monday the 14th and made our first trip out on Wednesday. We tried our new stroller out and headed up the street for lunch at Buchi Cuban reached 70 degrees! Our walk wasn't very far...Zander could have rolled forever but Mom was a little slower!

We enjoyed many more walks...just waiting for the weather to change as I am sure it will! I have to remind myself we live in Colorado and it is only February! Bryan worked from home a half day on Thursday and Friday so he can save some days to take vacations as the year goes on...we are looking forward to going back to IN and MI in May and Europe in July with Kristi, Rick, Jordyn and Skylar...I know, Europe with a 6 month old? but we figured its now or we have to wait awhile as a plane ride with a 2 year old seems VERY SCARY!

Zander has been to the peditrician twice already...His first visit was on Tuesday and we had a bit of a scare as he had lost a pound! Zander now weighed 7lbs 2 oz. We know he is suppose to lose weight but this was too much in too short of time! Our first night home was a LONG one and we just figured this was how it would be, when in fact, our poor little man was just hungry! It seems that we are going to have to supplement with formula. I am still feeding Zander as much as I can but I am not producing enough for Z man. We went back to the pediatrician on Friday and Zander was back on track, he was back up to 7 lbs 14 oz! In addtion, our nights had become much easier and he was sleeping great. We went back to the pediatrician on the following Wednesday (2/23) and Zander had surpassed his birth weight...he was up to 8 lbs 7 oz! He was doing great and is an eating machine!

Grandma's Birthday Party! On Sunday, February 20th, we headed to Kristi's house to celebrate Grandma's Birthday! It was good to get out of the house for a while and Zander loved seeing his cousins!!!
