6 Weeks Old!

Tomorrow Trace will be 6 weeks old, its hard to believe that it has been that long. He is so awesome, and we are so blessed to have him. He went to the doctor last week and weighed in at 7 lbs 10 ozs, and they said that he's growth is great. He goes back again at the end of the month for his first round of immunizations.

It has been an adjustment for us, but I think we're getting the hang of it. After a few trips out of the house, its getting easier for us to go places. We're also figuring out the many different ways restuarants can accomodate a car seat. Every one is different, but we're catching on.

Trace was sleeping well his first few weeks, but now he is getting a little more cranky at night. The doctor thinks that he may be getting a little cholic. The main thing is that he wants to be held or sleep right next to us. He has his good nights where he can be put down right away, and some nights, he doesn't want to be put down at all. As tough as it seems some times, I'm loving every minute of it...even the baths he doesn't quite like (he's actually started to enjoy his bath time, this was one of his first ones):

On August 20, Day Care starts. Ashley will be going back to work after Labor Day, so we want to bring Trace in to day care a few times before so he can get used to it. We visited the center the other day and met his teacher. His name is up on the wall for his class already. We're excited and nervous to bring him, and his first full day will probably be tough on us.

Trace had an exciting summer with playdates, cruising around Baton Rouge, his first birthday party at the Duplechains for Uncle Josh, visiting the Ring nursery and loving on mom and dad at home. Below are a few pictures of how Trace has spent his summer.
