More Maxwell and Stuff

Well, as of tomorrow my sweet grandson is 3 weeks old!

He's been gaining weight like crazy, too! He was 4.9 when he was born, 4.8 when he left the hospital and then at his pediatrician appointment yesterday he weighed 5.14 and in one inch longer!

When they first brought him home from the hospital they had to wake him up every 3 hours to eat and then he was sleepy and didn't want to eat much. But in the last week he seems to have woken up and now cries to be fed after about 2 1/2 hours and eats like a champ!

You all were right, like I knew you would be! He has completely stolen my heart and when I don't see him for a day or two I really miss him!  I try not to be a pest and only see him 2-3 times a week instead of every day or every other day! Anyway, on to the pictures!

See those chunky cheeks? I can't stop kissing them!

In other news, Rich and I spent a few hours the last two weekends tearing up the old, crappy carpeting in the living room. As soon as we get the walls painted, we are going to install a laminate floor. Trying to slowly get this house ready to sell in the Spring of 2018.

Rich will probably retire next January and  we are more than ready to downsize! The amount of stuff I have to get rid of is ridiculous, though! That's why I have to start now!

That's all for now!

Isn't it amazing all the neat baby things out nowadays. They have little places to nap that swing and vibrate and play soft music, and snuggler's and disposable diapers!!! Too much fun!!!

Aw so sweet. I'm working on getting rid of some of the clutter around here. A little bit evry day is a good way to wok on it.

Oh there he is! I'm so glad he's doing well. Oh he is just amazing and so sweet aND so cute! I could go on and on! Yes, and those cheeks! I remember when patti was born and the 1st time I saw her thinking she didn't have a chin because of the cheeks!

Wow I didn't know that Rich was close to retirement. That's awesome!

Thanks for the pics. Xoxo
