Activities Abound

We've been busy around the Lewandowski house. I caught a few playtime moments on camera over the past few days. Here's a short video of Ezekiel on his rainforest activity mat. His favorite activity is looking at the stuff.

His other favorite activity is looking at people and puppies. He loves eyes and faces. Here's a cute father/son moment from Monday after school.

Yesterday, Ezekiel went on his first date/doctor visit. Another young mom of a little girl and I both took our babies to their checkups at the hospital. Here we are in the waiting area. (Pediatricians don't take appointments either- first come, first served!) After 2 weeks, Ezekiel weighed in at 8 lbs 1 oz. This is up a full ounce from his birth weight! Good eating, son. The doctor said that Ezekiel is looking like a healthy (gordo!) boy and he'll see us again for his 2 month immunization visit. I'm not looking forward to that one, but I've got 6 weeks to prep myself.

Today we are excited because Grandma and Grandpa Nelson arrive. This will be their first time ever holding a grandchild. We can't wait for them to get here. So, today's agenda has a sponge bath and outfit trying-on as the big activities. Though Ezekiel's umbilical cord stump fell off last Friday, I'm terrified to give him a "real bath". He's not really dirty, and my sponge baths are pretty thorough. Perhaps Grandma will be able to assist with this big first.

More updates to come soon!
