4 weeks already?

Henry came into our home 4 weeks ago. Wow. He is certainly not having any trouble putting on weight. He already has the biggest cheeks and an extra chin! I can't download pictures until Trent hooks up the right cords for me. Henry is such a joy, I can't get enough of snuggling him and breathing him in. He has taken on the characteristic spitting up that my other kids had. Its not as bad as Charlotte's, but it is amazing how much rounder he is getting considering that he seems to spit up as much as he keeps down. He's also got a long tongue like my other kids and is usually found sleeping with it partially sticking out.
Charlotte and Tucker are wonderful at keeping each other entertained while my hands are full with the baby. They always love to kiss his face.
I am really anxious for the hundred plus degree temps to start cooling down. I can't wait to hang out in our new backyard without sweating profusely. I am sick of loading kids into a sweltering hot vehicle after going anywhere.
Tucker has gone to preschool twice now (he goes Tuesdays and Thursdays) and loves it. It is kind of a hassle loading up everyone, taking them out and putting them back in just to drop him off and pick him up, but it is worth it when he tells me how much fun he has. We even went to lunch with Grandpa yesterday after school and then Grandma came over in the evening and took the kids swimming in our pool. Our pool is only 5 feet deep and pretty small, so it feels more like a large bath than a refreshing pool with how warm it stays. Maybe it will be funner in a couple weeks! Tucker has been swimming without the aid of a life jacket and loves showing off his new skill. He's doing really great.
Well that's all for now, more updates to come. Hopefully we'll find the camera cord and hook it up soon.

I am glad things are going well for you and like Tori said, I hope you are getting some sleep.

I guess I missed the fact that you have a pool! That is awesome! Glad Tucker is enjoying it!

I have been missing you... Henry sounds like a dream. Chubby cheeks are the best. The way you describe him makes him sound so snuggly! I wish I could meet him. I hope you are hanging in there. xoxo

Time flies. It's crazy. I never got any sleep with my babies. They all like to wake up several times a night. Hope you are getting more than I did.
