6 weeks just flew by!

It's official...I am returning to work tomorrow. It has gone by way too fast, but I can say that these past 6 weeks have been a lot of fun! River is growing up already. He is not that helpless tiny baby he was when he was born. He is ready to head out to the big world by way of Leslie's house tomorrow with his big sister Soleil. He is all smiles and coos (when gas isn't bothering him) and that makes it all the harder to not be with him for many upcoming daylight hours. I hope he saves some of those coos and smiles for me at the end of the day. I am actually tearing up as I read this. I know that he will make me smile more and more as he grows, just as Soleil cracks me up. I love them both more everyday. It's just that I feel like time is getting away from us...we need to stop and smell the poopie diapers! Ok, I will move on. Here are a few pics from the past six weeks:

River's Tree

We wanted to plant a tree to commemorate River's birth. When Jess asked me what my favorite tree was, I told her a weeping willow. But a weeping willow is way too big for our yard and too much of a water that was out of the question. She then told me of a site that tells what your "birth tree" is. I decided to look up River's. It was a willow!

Robbie went to a nursery and called me to tell me what trees they had. Well he found one called a desert willow. I thought it was perfect since it was a willow, but a small one that didn't like a lot of water.

Here is River at just a few days old giving his tree his energy. We used the placenta that was his home for over 9 months to fertilize the tree.

I am hoping to take pics of River and the tree as they grow together so all can see the change.
