Hi There...Update

Hi all! I know I don't post often here...even though Zachary is an angel, he still monopolizes my time, especially since John is gone.

My little Zachary is just over 6-weeks-old and is wonderful. :) He's starting to be awake a lot more during the day (and with this comes a little bit more fussy time). But he's also swatting/grabbing at his rings when I play with him. :) He's also gaining a lot more control of his neck muscles. :) He's sleeping in 4-hour intervals at night,although his days are a lot more irregular...I think I'm going to have to start official naptimes soon rather than just letting him fall asleep whenever and where ever he wants to...he's only sleeping a half hour to an hour at a time during the day. (more often on the half hour side) unless I have him out...then he'll sleep for a couple of hours...I think the mall may be too noisy for the little guy. :) I think he knows his daddy is away serving our great nation...I fully anticipate this will all change soon. ;)

We go in for his 2-month check and shots on Thursday...I'll be interested in knowing how big he's gotten in the last 6 weeks. :)

I'm in much better spirits than I ever expected with John gone, but he's an attentive husband...even from so far away...he's promised me all kinds of "liz" time when he returns...which I'll gladly accept, both for my own sanity and for him to make up time with Zachary. :)

Well...I'm off to bed, but I've updated the website if you want to see new pictures of our darling. :)

Great to see you posting, Liz! How great that Zachary is doing so well. Sounds like his hand/eye coordination is coming right along. And how sweet of John to already be promising you alone time with him! Yay! Hope he comes home soon, hon!

Have a great week! Jill

P.S. Thank you AGAIN for assisting us as you have with the upcoming move.

You're welcome for the help...let me know if you need anything, or you want me to send you any apartment guides or the listings from the paper. :)
