CRU

alright, Cru had his 3 week birthday yesterday! We tortured him on Monday with a little sniperooney, a PKU test and an x-ray. The good thing out of that day was that his air pockets are all gone and we have no more x-rays to get! (phew). and we found out that Cru is growing very well and eating better than some people thought. He was 9 lb 9 oz on Monday and now 22 inches long. He basically could squash any of the other new baby's at church, even though half of them are older than him!

Cru is looking cuter and cuter everyday! I love it. He does the funniest things with his face which everyone in my family will admit to also doing! His hair is blonde and his eyes are blue for now. Shad and I are having so much fun with him!

I went back to school on the 7th so it's been a juggling act getting ready for school every morning, feeding Cru (or pumping for food later) getting Cru ready and taking him to kind friends houses to watch him when Shad can't. But it's working out and we only have 3 more weeks of it. Sadly I'll then be going back to work on the 9th :(

Everyone's been asking for more pictures so here's a few! Enjoy!

Ps, in the pictures Shad got him the I heart NY outfit while he was there this summer. So we had to take pictures of him wearing it.

Cru is so cute! I love the picture at the top of your blog of the two of you! Did the Dr wait so long for the "sniperooney" because of the complications when he was born or do they just not do it when they are born at the hospital (before he was released) in Utah? Just curious...Spencer watched them do Ryan's "sniperooney," I dont think I could have even if I was allowed out of bed! Hope things continue to go well with him!

Poor little guy! I knew I wouldnt be able to handle watching...I am surprised Spencer wanted to! They waited to do it with my nephew too, for some reason they didnt do it at the hospital where he was born. Glad to hear things are going so much better with Cru!

Sorry I'm so tardy with this comment, but Lane and I think Cru is adorable. I'm so glad everything worked out with him! And talk about a big baby. You are a champion in my book.
