7 Weeks....

I can't believe my little man is 7 weeks old today..... I mean really, where did the time go?  I still remember like it was yesterday when we brought him home from the hospital.  The funny thing is, I can't remember really, how small he was.  But I do know he is much bigger now.  Three pounds makes a difference lol!! Too bad it doesn't make a difference when I LOSE three pounds ;)
I think he is going through a growth spurt.  He has been eating every 2 hours on the dot, and 3 ounces each time.  Last night he slept for 7.5 hours straight - not waking up.  That was nice!  All of his sleepers are getting short on him - I may have to start cutting the feet off of them!  He spends most of his days in just a diaper shirt though because he is swaddled for his naps.  It's a good excuse to put some cute pants and hoodies on him though when he's out of the swaddler!  He's so darn cute! (The sleeper is from Auntie Kortney, and no, what it says is not true!)
We had a pizza night tonight.  It was good.  I cut out dairy from my diet because I shouldn't be eating it anyway and I want to see if it helps with Ethan's gassy stomach.  I made mine with Daiya "cheese" and it was great - you would never know it wasn't cheese.  Didn't melt too great but it was still gooey when you pulled the pizza apart.  Anyway, Ethan wasn't going down for a nap so he made the pizza with me while he was in the Moby!

Mmmm..... pizza.... they didn't have 'mozzarella', so I had to go with 'cheddar'

Poor guy has a huge scratch on his face from his sharp little nails, and he broke out in a rash that gets even more irritated when he is screaming his head off.  (That seemed to be the norm today).  It must be painful when you grow :(  He was not interested in sleeping in his crib either today.... he would go down for a maximum of 30 minutes.  So he had a nap with dad and the dogs.
Anyway that's all that's really going on here.  I'm trying to update daily now, so if you are an avid reader, then check back often, because there will probably be pictures and posts up :)
