One Month?!

Time is flying by waaaaay too quickly. Tomorrow Everett will be one month old, in a week from Friday we move, in two weeks from today I start work, and in less than a month Adam starts classes. Where has the summer gone?!

Well, it has gone to 8-12 feedings a day, 1-3 hours of sleep in between, two tired newbie parents, and one stinkin' cute baby that is gaining weight like crazy. That's right. We are the proud parents of an eleven pound baby. He is gaining 2-3 ounces a day when most babies gain about one ounce a day. Every time we pick him up we can feel and see how he's changed. He's staying awake for longer periods during the day and doing an AWESOME job of sleeping for long periods of time at night. He's a rock star at tummy time and puts up with me checking all of the developmental milestones each week (yay for tracking objects and turning to Mom's voice!). He shocked us both last week when he decided to roll over from his tummy to his back. We thought it might be a fluke, but he proceeded to do it seven times over the next couple days and from both directions. Our child is a genius.

I never wanted our blog to turn into a play by play of Everett's life, but to be honest...there's not much else going on! He is definitely the best thing in our lives right now (although I still absolutely love seeing Adam be a daddy). I am dreading going to work. I love that my job is half-time, but not excited about the two weeks of full-time training I have to do in August. Luckily, Adam can stay at home and take care of Everett, though I am super jealous of him. I love our days together! Seriously...I need to figure out a way that Adam, Everett, and I can just stay home together all the time and still get an income. Ideas?

Adam has been updating his website (www.thecapturedphotos.com) and Facebook business page like crazy. He also took advantage of his "free" time in June to totally revamp his accounting for his business. He's totally legit! I am definitely learning a lot about business and all the little things you have to think about. A buddy of Adam's let us use his studio space this weekend, so Adam shot some awesome pictures of our little guy. He was upset and tired for most of the shoot, but somehow Adam was able to capture these brief moments where he was calm and adorable. Emphasis on adorable.

He is so cute! I just kept staring at that second picture of him. He looks like a wise man already!
