At first we felt weird buying a house: 1) In 'their' neighborhood and 2) One street number off of theirs (they are 801 and we are 802). Turns out it was the best decision we could have made. I just think about how easy it is for them to see their first grandchild. They can just walk on down. I know they'd still see him if we were across town, but the nights of just calling and then stopping by wouldn't be there. I know Ben's mom enjoys it, but I think his dad enjoys it more. He'll just stop by and stare at him or touch his little feet and say how much he changes every day. He's right.
The below pic was taken the same day as the 8-week pic after a nice and full diaper explosion got all over his cute outfit.
Lately, he has been falling asleep in my lap. And that's where he is right now as I type this. I think we're developing a bit of an attachment to mom. He follows me (with his eyes and head)when I leave the room, and sometimes he starts crying. I was thinking he was too young for this, but I guess I was wrong. As sweet as I feel to know that he loves me more than anyone right now, I don't want him to be upset when I have to leave him with someone else. Especially if it's just Ben for 5 minutes while I brush my teeth and wash my face.

At six weeks Nolan had eczema. I took him to the doctor. We've gotten it under control with Aveno Baby lotion in the morning, a ten minute soak in the pm followed by a slathering of Eucerin creme. He's greasy, but he seems to feel better. And he looks all dewy. He weighed in at 10 lbs, 12 oz on our visit to the doctor. That comes out to about a pound a week gain for the last three weeks. Did I mention he eats a lot?

Yesterday Nolan was five weeks old. Some fun facts about our little guy.
- He sleeps about 3 hours at a time a couple times a day and almost always at night.
- He eats about every 2 hours.
- He is obsessed with the ceiling fan. He'll make ga-ga faces at it.
- Sometimes he smiles when I am entertaining him.
- He likes when I sing to him. He may be the only person in the entire world who enjoys my singing voice.
This is hilarious. A common face we see around the Scarbrough house. This is described as 'Taking it in.'
Here we are about to head out for a Saturday. Thanks for the outfit Mom. He looks cute in it. On a note about me, what's been going on with my hair? So flat and lifeless....
This is funny, because how many prints can you have in a picture? It makes my eyes hurt. But he's cute.
It rained here today, so we did a little strolling around the house. Not as fun as going around the neighborhood...and much more difficult to maneuver. He enjoyed it.
