Baby Update

So I am still alive but sometimes I wonder by how much! Things in Germany are going well but I am about to be put to the true test. Deaner's mother and aunt have been here for the past week and they are leaving on Sunday. It is the last of my guests until November and I am slightly anxious about it. I know I can do this alone but it is going to be a lot more exhausting. Right now Evans is sleeping from 10:30-2:30am, feed, 2:30-5:30am, feed, and then up at 7:30am and not wanting to go back to sleep. I've been the one feeding him but Deaner's mom has been taking over at 7:30 and allowing me to sleep for several extra hours. I am really really going to miss those hours!! And his mom and aunt! I really hope I am not lonely once the company clears out and that Christmas time comes quickly. As much as we love Germany it is times like these when I miss my family being around. I want to be able to show off my baby while he is still so little! He won't be little for long since he is already over 10 pounds!! His pediatrician appointment went well and all is good. Next time we go we have to start vaccinations and I am dreading that! But for now, I thought I would share some more pictures since everyone is visiting Heidelberg and I have the day to myself.

Evans has really started to love bathtime and I try to bathe him everyday. The first bathtime was not as successful......Now he could sit in his whale tub forever!We have taken a few field trips down to the winestand trying to enjoy the last bit of nice weather that Germany has been offering. This is Evans and his Gannie (Deaner's mom).We have eaten dinner at all our favorite places. Seriously, we just drag this baby around with us everywhere and he is SO good. Never cries (knock on wood) and is generally pretty happy.And there is certainly no mistaking who this boy's father is! Have you ever seen a baby look more like his dad??Anyways, it is time for me to close my eyes for an hour before everyone gets home and we have to get ready for dinner. Hopefully I can be better about posting next week but who knows!! I never know what the day is going to hold for me now!
