1 month 2 days and counting

Outside today- I wanted to get one more day out of the little yellow sweater....
All by himself in his rocking chair

bored already!
he's sitting next to me in bed as i type- i have 1 arm around him -like we are an old couple watching tv. he prefers sleeping in his playpen..ahem..play-yard...these days..we think he likes the sun and to look outside and see nature.
last week my aunt peg and nanny came for a few days- it was so nice to have them here for an extended time and really get to visit (and let them change diapers!). we went blueberry picking with gramma brown & then the entire family went to Govoni's Italian Restaurant on Rt. 112 in Woodstock- they haven't been open for a few years & I thought the food was delicious.
On a side note- my mother was 45 minutes early for dinner (and for any of you that know my mother know what an oddity this is)...and Nate, Nanny, Dad, Peg, Marcus and I were 20 minutes late due to the bad weather and a road detour from a mudslide on crazy Rt. 112 & Sara and Andy were 20 minutes late due to a "communication failure."

Last night Abby came over and watched Marcus while Nate and I worked upstairs. Her job really wasn't too much of a challenge since all he did was sleep! Her car was no further than the mailbox before he woke up :-( I was, however, able to get the first coat of Behr's Ionic Sky up on the nursery walls. It looks a lot brighter than it does downstairs in my kitchen! I'm anxious to get the flooring in to tone it down a bit!

On a sad note- Marcus is growing to big. He doensn't fit into his newborn sized onesis anymore. Luckily,the rest of the newborn sized stuff still works- the pants and hoodies and a couple outfits...his mommy is not quite ready to pack it away so soon!

Its amazing to think that he has already been with us for over a month...at times it feels like he's been here forever & then sometimes it seems like a shock that he is.

Last night he managed 6 hours in a row- so here's hoping we can have a repeat tonight!
If not, we'll spend some quality time watching the Olympics in the wee hours of the morning again...which really isn't all that bad either!
