First week back


Ugh! Every morning I have to leave this sweet face! He has been full of smiles and gurgles this week had taken very well to the babysitter. And... he rolled over yesterday!!!! From stomach to back! He is holding his head up very well on his stomach and is getting stronger everyday! He is such an amazing little Tater Tot! I am so happy I have the weekend with my munchkins!

Blog Neglect

Yes, I have been neglecting my blog. I spend absolutely no time on the computer anymore and am enjoying my little man as long as I have him home with me. We are both doing great! My sleep deprivation is starting to catch up to me and I have been really dragging the last couple of days but had 1/2 cup of coffee this morning and can almost think about starting my day! Enough about me though, on to Tate! He is a really good baby. NEVER really cries. Just fusses a little. He's a pretty good sleeper most of the time... We are just enjoying each others company for the next month before I have to go back to work. I have to say that I do envy the stay home mom. I know its a really hard job and you start to go crazy after a while... I stayed home with Karsen for 2 years except for a part time job I worked when her dad was home with her... BUT, I would love to be able to spend those first few years at home with him. It breaks my heart that someone else is going to see all of his firsts...
Anyway... here are some newer pictures of the little man... He looks so much like his dad!!!

My Hospital Vistiors...

Weight Update

We took Tate to the Dr. on Friday and he is weighing in at 8 lbs 7 oz! Almost back to birth weight and he had already grown an inch! My mom and Karsen took me to the appointment and I had them wait in the waiting room. I was not prepared for the Hep B vaccine and the PKU test that came next. He cries so seldom and is so quiet that my mom and Karsen were so concerned with all of the noise he was making they both poked their heads in from the waiting room 3 times to see what was happening to him. I made it through with no tears this time though! With Karsen I was sobbing in the corner during the shots and blood draws.
Not looking forward to the 2 month visit... I seem to remember lots and lots more shots!

He is finally here!!!

Albert "Tate" Archie came into the world on Thursday, February 26th at:









weighing in at 8 lbs 14 oz and 19 3/4 inches long. Here are some pics of the first couple of days of his life.






I started this entry when i was still in the hospital and kept falling asleep as I was doing it. We left the hospital on Sunday. His weight was down a little, when we left it was 7 lbs 11oz but Monday at the dr it was the same. No gain but no more loss. Today (Wednesday) he looks like he is starting to fill out so i am sure he will have gained some.
