Big smiles

He knows he's cute!

Oh, our little guy is 2 months old!

Zane is 2 months old now, can you believe it!! We went to the doc today for his check up and shots. He is officially 10 lbs, 2 oz. Getting big. He's been smiling at us and talking to us. Oh, it's so amazing. He's also putting himself to sleep still in his crib, which I think is pretty neat. Now, the next step hopefully is to sleep through the night.

Brian just went back to work a week ago. We loved having him home with us for 6 weeks. We spent some quality time fixing up the house, fishing and relaxing. I will be going back to work on August 3rd, which is coming soon. We found a great daycare for him and he'll be going there 3 days a week. It makes me sad to go back to work, but reality is coming soon. I know he'll be in good hands and it is only a few days a week. Luckily, he is close to my work and Brian's so we can visit him the first few weeks until we are all adjusted. Zane is very easy going and will adapt on the other hand might take awhile.

Kellie, our niece and her boyfriend are here with us right now. We're having a lot of fun, and she's completely in love with Zane. We've just been hanging out around the house, but Zane had another fishing experience...he's a good fisherman, that's for sure!

The next few weeks will be busy..we're going to Cheyenne frontier days, Andy is coming back, Grandma and Grandpa Brinkman are coming out and Paul and Carole...we can't wait for you all to meet our little man!

Zane is 7 weeks already

The past few weeks have been really busy, but we've sure had fun. Our friends Katie and Wes came to visit us for a few days as well as Grandpa and Grandma Burton. We were very busy; we went to Rocky Mountain National park with Zane, a Rockies game with Grandpa and Grandma Burton, and we saw the most amazing fireworks there. He sure enjoyed meeting Grandpa and Grandma. He doesn't even know how many people love him!

Zane is growing like crazy. I think he is about 9 lbs. and is about 23 inches or more. We'll find out for sure on July 18th at his 2 month appointment. He is so alert and just an amazing little boy. He is smiling, rolling from his tummy to his back and side to side. He also moved from sleeping in a pack and play in our room, and to sleeping in his own room and crib. He slept very well, thank goodness! We decided it was time, for one he is only has about 2 inches left in the pack n play (like I said, he is growing) and he was able to put himself to sleep twice yesterday. This of course was with the help of the aquarium from Julia. It plays music and bubbles with fish, and he loves it. I found that music is the trick to him sleeping.
