Man, the past two weeks have felt so busy!! I haven't gotten to update the blog in over a week. I have had some requests for updates so I will try and fill you in!
Last week we spent most of our time getting ready for Julie's bridal shower so that kept us plenty busy. It turned out super cute and I got to experience a VERY busy Saturday with Max in tow the entire day. He did really well but I was EXHAUSTED by the end of the day. I have to say thank you to Summer and Kalee who brought me by dinner that night. It was really nice to just eat and crash.
Last Thursday Max went back for another weight check and he was up to 7 pounds 13 ounces! We are so excited that he is continuing to gain weight at a perfect pattern.
We also went to go visit Grammy Pooh (Rob's mom) and spent some time over there. It was nice to visit and Max always enjoys snuggles from his grandma's.
We have been getting to talk to Rob several times a day and it has been wonderful! I am so excited to see him at Christmas but I dread them leaving the country because then communication will undoubtedly slow down. It's also really hard because I can't contact him at that point via phone or text, a luxury we are still very much enjoying!
Keep us in your prayers as we finish up Max's first month! We are now hoping for some longer stretches of sleep at night. It sounds silly but I pray over Max every night at bedtime and sleeping is frequently discussed right along with thank you's for the blessing he has already become in our life.
Jess and Max
