8 weeks old!

This has been a week of firsts:
Colben's first night sleeping in his room (in his crib instead of the swing, baby carriage, daddy's chest, mommy's arms)
Mom and Dad's first night sleeping in the bed (AT THE SAME TIME!)
The first time we have moved up in clothing size- (packing was sad)
The first time we used our cloth diapers (swearing to only use disposables when out)
The first time Colben had a cloth diaper poo blow out (all over Ethan)
The first time I took Colben out in cloth despite pledging allegance to disposable (it was fine)
First interaction with another baby (was he flirting with a boy?)
The first stroller free trip (the baby bjorn worked like a charm and I ran over a lot less toes)
The first time I put Colben in his bed still awake and he fell asleep (our room is pretty boring
The first time I gave drugs to Colben (I am on T3's and he gets it through my milk. It makes him veeerry sleepy which actually explains most of the stuff above)

Bruised, swollen, high on T3's : minus 7 teeth not a pretty thing

How are you doing Mischa. Sorry I didn't call when you had your surgery. I was in the midst of painting and moving! I bet you are glad it is over! Let's see a nice big smile now!;)

Colben sure looks like he is growing. What big beautiful eyes he has!

We are all settled in our new house. Even Pixie has settled in nicely. Will party it up and break it in at Christmas!

Love to All
