John Paul is 2 weeks old!

As of yesterday, John Paul is 2 weeks old. In his short 2 week life, he has already accomplished many things:
2 doctors visits (the doctor actually said he is perfect!), grown 2 inches, gained 11 ounces, gotten a bigger head (no, not from hearing how cute he is), moved to stage 1 diapers, and 1 trip to Walmart (Mom would have preferred Target but time is an issue these days).

Last weekend, all the family finally met John Paul. His Aunt JoAnna, cousins Bailey and Abby, Great Grammy, and Uncle Stephen all came to visit. He didn't seem to mind the attention.

We are still learning and adjusting to our new phase of life. Probably the most entertaining is watching Dad change diapers. Most of the time it goes smoothly but occasionally, the pee shoots in all directions when the head is turned! (too be fair, it has happened to Mom too!) So, Parenting lesson #2: Always take cover, never turn your head, and throwing the diaper in the stream of pee doesn't help!

Welcome to our blog.

We decided to start a blog for our family and friends who might be interested in John Paul. We will do our best to periodically update the blog with photos and cute stories of what our precious boy has been up to.

So it begins...

John Paul was born on Thursday, February 8, 2007 at 2:19PM. He weighed in at 8lbs 3oz and was 19". He came home from the hospital on Saturday and has spent the first week at home with mom, dad, and grandmother. So far only one bad pee accident (parenting lesson #1 - Don't leave a baby without a diaper on your bed).
