The Busy Life of a 9-Week Old Baby

Noah is 9 weeks old and doing great! He is smiling a lot now. He's predictably going 6 hours between feedings at night, but once in a while he gives us a nice surprise and goes 7 or 8 hours. He really likes riding in the car - as long as there is motion. He doesn't like red lights or the gap in time between when he goes in the car and when the car starts moving. Once the car starts moving he likes to look out the window, then he falls asleep in a few minutes. Laura and Noah have been keeping very busy. We've started going to a morning women's bible study (Noah snored through the whole thing this week), lots of errands, walks around the neighborhood and park, and spending time with friends. Noah seems to have his best naps when we're out and about, so we like to keep on the move when we can.

We had a great fourth of July - Matt ran in the Firecracker 5K, and we had a fun afternoon hanging out with all our friends at a picnic in the park. There were about 44 people there, including kids! Wow! We are all so excited that Laura's brother Dave and family are coming to visit us tomorrow. Noah will meet his Uncle Dave, Aunt Stephanie and cousins Travis, Connor and Jacob. Here's our pictures from the last week.
