Growing Like a Weed

I finally broke down and mowed the yard yesterday. I realize how ridiculous I may have looked, considering I just gave birth two weeks ago, but I wanted to help Brian out and feel like I had actually accomplished something. So, the front yard is mowed. Ha, I didn't say I mowed ALL of it.

Just like the weeds that had popped up in our yard, we have a little boy that's growing that same way... fast and totally unexpectedly. Daniel doesn't even seem like a newborn anymore. He went for his two-checkup yesterday, and he had gained 1.4 lbs. in seven days... He's now weighing WAY over his birth weight(8.8) at a whopping 9.6 lbs.! We also got the results from the ultrasound of his kidneys, which were "perfectly normal."

I'm amazed at how well Daniel is doing, and sometimes I forget, when he's up all night or screaming at the top of his lungs, what a blessing he truly is. We are honored to hold him in our arms, and we have become so aware of the perfectly, great God we serve! Enjoy the latest pictures of our growing boy!

It was 3:04 a.m., and Daniel was wide awake and grinning ear to ear!

I see God's fingerprints all over this picture. Look on the top, right side of the screen and notice Daniel's profile at 28 weeks... He is wonderfully made!

Daniel is two weeks old, and already holding his head up all by himself...

Daddy and Daniel needed a day-time nap.

Daniel's gift from our sweet friends, the Woodards. It's on the wall right as you walk into his room.

He lost his cord just days before Mother's Day, and just so happened to have on this "Mommy" onesie. Look how big Daniel is!
