Due Date Day!

Well folks, today is due date day...June 27th, 2010...the day that meant our little guy was ready to come into this world, 40 weeks of gestation/9 months of growth inside of mama. Well, as we all know, little mister Eli wanted to meet the world early, and now at 40 weeks of age he has spent 5 of them outside of the womb. It has been an interesting five weeks, that's for sure, and we are all settling into our new routine...i.e. mommy and daddy are learning to cope with a lot less sleep! Haha!

From the way that Eli is developing you'd never know that he was a preemie...his appetite is {huge}, and he can barely stand to go 2 and a half hours between feedings...1.5 - 2 hours is more his style! Believe me, the milk factory is working overtime, but that just means that I am losing the baby weight faster, so it's all good! He is able to pick up and turn his head when he's on his tummy and has pretty good head control. All in all he is tracking along like a typical newborn, and being born a month plus early hasn't slowed him down.

Here is our sweet boy at 5 weeks old:

Having fun baby-wearing...he slept like an angel and I got lots accomplished while snuggling with my sweet boy at the same time!

Enjoying father/son time!

Crazy eyes!

This cozy bunting was made by Tia, Eli's great-aunt.

Have a great Sunday, y'all!
