so much to say saturday

saturday: june 25, 2007

here’s what davey looked like yesterday when i ran into town to make the "final approval" of the design of his birth announcement. and he slept long enough that i was even able to die cut letters of the alphabet to spell out the months in his baby book. yea for sleeping baby davey! i must admit that i LOVE the little hoodie he’s wearing, so i went out and bought a few more this week in various colors and sizes (thanks to Mary Jo’s gift card!)

then we went to a surprise party last night. i don’t really have any good photos of that, but here’s davey and joshua. joshua was 6 pounds 2 ounces when he was born (about davey’s size in this photo) and now, just 6 months later, check him out…. so in 6 months, my own little davey could be a chunk! so hard to imagine!

that’s auntie brandi holding baby davey. she fed him his bottle last night at 8:45 p.m. (at the party) and he slept until 1:45 a.m. today. yes siree. he slept for 5 hours! then, i fed him around 2 a.m. and he slept until 5 a.m.  THANK YOU, BRANDI, for teaching me to burp him even MORE OFTEN than every ounce. i’m hoping this 5-hours in a row of sleeping will last for more than just last night!

and here are my boys in bed this morning around 9 a.m.

after his 5 a.m. feeding, davey ate AGAIN at 6:40 a.m. and then was fussy around 8. so at 8 he came to bed with us and was pretty good (slept most of the time) until eating again at 10. yep. we’re working on this food thing.

 and before i forget, here are the final shower photos of all the clothing davey received (mostly in smaller sizes):

check out the little jean jacket (lower right corner) – it’s got a little bit of that "sherpa fur" lining at the collar and cuffs. it’s pretty chilly here today (lower 60s) so he might wear it to auntie rachel’s post-wedding reception! and i love the little plaid shirt with jeans (lower middle-left area) – he might get to wear that to church tomorrow (or to the reception today?)! i do love ALL the clothing, but those two stand out right now b/c he might get to wear them today (they’re in the dryer right now).

and the books he has received (thus far):

there are some good ones in there, eh?

and finally, a few shots of people from my shower (thanks to brandi for taking these photos with my camera since i was busy opening presents):

the larger 1/2 circle of the attendees:

sandi (hostess) holding davey while kay reads a blessing:

(check out all those presents in the background)!

my mother-in-law, Linda Dunkin:

my former roommate and maid of honor: Christy (Yost) Fankhauser:

my good friend Brandi (due any day now):

my dear friend carrilee (who was in charge of the shower game):

and last, but certainly not least, the coolest diaper bag EVER (thanks to Linda for making this JUST FOR ME!):

(but be aware, she does make and sell these – diaper bags, bibs, burp cloths – through her company called Bella Baby…. if you’re interested, let me know and I’ll get her e-mail address and/or phone number to you – she does not yet have a website).

and with that, I’m gonna go take care of my baby while Dave makes us some breakfast burritos (yummy)!

  1. hi, friend. i had totally forgotten about the twinkies in egypt. remember when we bought all those cross charms in the old city – and couldn’t find the store owner to pay – so we considered leaving him a “bartered amount” for the charms? i wanted to see the books you have – because i have the perfect gift idea for you – but wanted to make sure you didn’t have it! :) you don’t! i will mail it as soon as i get it! wow – what a haul at that shower! i am finally out of baby gift bags and could use some of those cute ones! :)

  2. You’re not kidding about that darling hoodie. It’s so tiny!!! Hoodies were one of my favorite, favorite things for my boys, too. I once picked up a hoodie on clearance at Mervyn’s for $2. Sean wore it, Nate wore it, then I think at least 3 other little boys wore it, and the darn thing NEVER wore out, despite umpteen hundred washings. Gotta love ‘em! Thanks for the book pics, too! It was nice seeing your little family today. And I LOVE Davey’s double chin…yeah for chubbiness, however small! :)
