7 weeks!!!

I can't believe it has been 7 weeks since our Zechariah has been born! He is a delightful baby who goes through more diapers than any of my others! :)


This is Zechariah (2 weeks old)with his great grandmother who will be 90 this year:

He has been quite busy the first weeks of his life. He has already left his home state of Lousianna to travel down to Florida for the funeral of my grandfather...his great grandfather. He never had the chance to meet my Papa Bob but I can assure you Papa Bob would have loved him greatly!

Zechariah has been to the beauty school where he was giving his GQ poses like this one for the ladies ( in this picture he is 3 weeks old)...

He has worked steadily at making sure he catches up with the others by being the fastest grower with the weight gain of 2 pounds in less than a month! ( It must be all those extra sweets I am eating!). My other babies stayed in their preemie clothes till they were almost 5 months old...not this one, he will be moving up to NEWBORN clothes shortly...

All the kids love him dearly.

Katie Faith is the "Mother Hen" of the group. She is always close by to make sure he is ok. She spends quite a bit of her day loving and kissing on him, and she thinks she is teaching him to sit already!

Kaylyn loves to talk to him and "E" will whiz by and give him a kiss through out the day.




Elijah loves to hold him and give cheek to cheek kisses for a brief moment and then off he is to play again. He is always quick to inform me when the baby is "I-ing" (crying) until I go and calm Zechariah down. I do not have a good picture of the two of them but here is one of Elijah just because I did not want to leave him out.

Zechariah is just beginning to smile. It is still hard for him to give one but he gave his biggest one yet to his daddy...just last night ( look at thos chubby cheeks and double chin)......

I enjoy my morning snuggles with him and wathing his little eyes fall asleep so content in my arms. I even enjoy all the diaper changes...even though I have been squirted a time or two, most of the time he gets himself in the face.

I thank God for this little blessing and pray for discernment and wisdom on how to raise him.

I look forward to seeing him grow stage by stage...not to quickly though!

Oh how sweet babies are! I can still remember nursing each of mine - that sweet snuggly time. I think I miss that the most.

Love when they begin smiling! I used to say that I was going to have lots of laugh lines on my face for all the smiles and silly faces I would make at my babies to see those smiles!
