David is officially 2 weeks and 1 day old and it feels like he has been a part of our family for much longer than that! :)  The girls have adjusted to having a baby just fine.  They don't seem to have an OUNCE of jealousy except maybe of ME when I'm holding David b/c they always want a turn.  It doesn't hurt that my dad and Ruth have been here and they have been LOVING that and next to come is Mary and Quinn which they are looking forward to!

David had his 2 week check up today.  He is 9 lbs 5 ounces so he has gained his birth weight back plus some.  Since I'm nursing this is VERY comforting to me.  He is a good little eater and eats every 2-3 hours during the day and 3-4 hours at night (I even have to wake him sometimes which I normally wouldn't do but I really want to nurse and I had a few problems with Ry so I want to make sure it's going smooth!)  He rarely cries and usually it's b/c he's poopy, hungry, or cold.  If we are outside in the heat he will sleep forEVER!  Definitely my kid.  He continues to look like Alexis and Travis to me. :)

Here are pictures from the last 2 weeks of everyone. I am SO glad I had him during the summer so we can just relax instead of worrying about school and schedules!!

Lex and Ayden at the pool.  Why can I not flip these??!!!

Ry loves her goggles!  On a side note I need to post the video of Ry swimming to my dad!  She is turning into quite the little fish just like her sister!
Why of course David was at the pool at one week!  Don't worry he didn't actually get in yet (still had his umbilical cord which Lexi called umbilican cord! :))  And we have UV protectant tent for him too!
First time on the playmat.  He really does like it!
We all went fishing.  Even David although there are no pics b/c he just hung out with me but Travis said he needed his first fishing trip!
I just love this pic of Ry.  These are the alleged "yoga pants."  If you haven't heard this story Ryan a while back had her hand down these pants.  I told her to please get her hands out of her pants to which she replied, "are you SERIOUS mom these are YOGA pants!"  Oh she is going to be trouble.

First  bath and he LOVED it!  Only cried when the water got to cool we put more warm water in and he was perfectly happy again.

I love snuggling with him.
Obviously so does Travis!
And so does Lex!

I really wish this wasn't sideways but David's first time going to church.  I love his little button down shirt!

Saying bye to Nanny Ruth and Grandpa Jones.  They sure were a HUGE help!!!
