Zane's Firsts

Zane if 5 weeks old today and on Friday he weighed 7 lbs, 15 oz. Remember 5 weeks ago he was 5 lbs, 8 oz. Yep, he's a growing boy! He is very alert and loves to cuddle. He has experienced so many things in his short time here....last week was a very busy week for Zane. Like I said, firsts! This week he did a lot of things for the first time; met two of his grandparents, and uncles/aunts, went to the Rockies game, met mom and dad's friends and their little ones, went to the mountains, went out for dinner and went to the park.

He went to his first Rockie's game with the Stanek/Sisson family. He had a blast...really, he slept through the entire thing. We know this will be on of many he'll see. Brian and I have come to accept that he will be a Rockies fan since he was born here, but we'll make sure he cheers for the Twins too!!

He also met his Grandma and Grandpa May, Uncle Andy and John and Auntie Julia. We had so much fun. He loved having them here and meeting them. Andy couldn't get over how little he was, and I know if Julia and John could, they would have packed him in her suitcase and brought him home. Zane took his first trip to the mountains, Mount Evans with everyone and saw his first mountain goat. It was so much fun! While they were here we also went out for dinner, which was another first for Zane. He again, slept through the entire dinner. We also went for a long walk and to the park with John and Julia.
He is also rolling from his tummy to his back. I don't think it's because he is trying, it think it is because he doesn't want to be on his back, but it's pretty cute. He's also mimicking us. When we stick out our tongue he does too.

I hope you all enjoy our updates!

Sorry, I haven't posted for a while....I find my self saying this each time I post lately. We've been very busy getting to know Zane, Doc appointments and thankfully resting too. Zane will be one month old next week...WOW, time has flown by. It's amazing how much he has changed since he was born. He definitely has a personality and is such a great baby. He's calm and easy going like his daddy (thank goodness) and very alert. We were prepared that he'll be a month behind since he was a month early, but the doctor isn't seeing it a whole lot.

He's following toys with his eyes, he'll turn his head when he hears my or daddy's voice and is feeding well and gaining weight. Our official on month weigh in will be on Monday, which ironically was his actual due date. I can't wait to find out what he weighs. We went in to see the lactation consultant yesterday and she weighed him at 7 lbs. 1 oz. The doctors scale is more accurate as we've been weighing him there since we brought him home from the hospital.

We are also planning to get his pictures taken hopefully next week. We had to wait since he's swimming in all of his clothes. We can't wait to share some pictures with all of you.
