7 weeks

IMG_9178edit BW sm WM
I can't believe how quickly the time has passed... Kelan is now 7 weeks old and seems to be growing bigger every second. He's getting more head control and, although we are still waiting for a true smile, he seems to be showing a little more personality now.

I feel like I'm getting the hang of things better now, too. It doesn't help that the college girl we had used as our sitter for the last year plus quit on us last week, but we've decided that it was a good thing after all and we're in the process of finding someone else that will fit our needs better than she did. I've even made dinner 3 out of 4 days this week so far... Pretty amazing and not something that has happened much since I found out I was pregnant with Kelan. ;) I see a light at the end of the tunnel now and although I know it'll still be tough, I am a lot more capable than I thought I was. I just have to be *really* organized to get what I need done in a day.

Here's Cohen showing Kelan some love while he was laying on the ottoman. This is how he does it... just lays his head near him. It's how he gives hugs... a kiss is generally more of a head-butt than anything else, but on occasion he'll give you a good open mouthed one. ;)

Cohen really loves his "baby".

I adore how sweet Cohen can be and I love that he still lets me rock him and sing to him before he goes to bed at night. He wants to be big like his brother and sister so badly and I have feared that he would give up things like that faster. Thank goodness he hasn't and I hope he doesn't for a very long time!

Ha! SO funny. I didn't realize how similar those 2 can be in their looks because everyone usually says their coloring is the same, but their faces are very different. So this is surprising to hear of a black and white picture!
