Bridger - 7 Weeks Old

My big boy, 
I just cannot get enough of you! 
I love you more and more each and every day.
This week you continued your first California adventure.

You spent lots of time with your Nina - she simply adored having you visit and can't wait for us to come back! (And I can't either!!!) She even took a "selfie" with us!
You also got to spend a few precious days with your aunt Brittney and your cousin Bree - she thought you were pretty neat! 
She always wanted to hold and kiss you, and would always ask "see baby?!" when you weren't in her view - she was a very concerned little gal.

You took a 5 hour car ride, just you and your momma, and you did great!
We stopped halfway for your breakfast and you only cried for about 20 minutes after we got back on the road. 

On Wednesday you had a very big adventure indeed.
You flew on your first airplane!
Actually TWO airplanes!
First, you flew from sacramento to Salt Lake City.
On this first flight you nursed then slept for the first 45 minutes. 
Then you woke up and were wide awake for the next 45 minutes.  You were SUCH a good baby - the only sounds you made were a few cute baby coos!  You were content just to cuddle and you loved looking around the plane.
When I first boarded I got some death glares... "Oh great, an infant..." But since you didn't make a peep, when everyone passed us deplaning we got lots of smiles, "what a cute baby" and "he was so quiet!" - you show em Bridger boy!
We had a two and a half hour layover in SLC and you kind of had a meltdown - it was bedtime and you were a bit overstimulated with all the lights and noises.  You finally fell asleep and then we boarded the plane to Hailey. 
On the second flight you slept the whole way!  You even stayed asleep as we deplaned and got our luggage and waited for dad!

Speaking of dad, he was SO happy to see you!
When we got to the car he snatched you from me and I thought I'd never get you back :)
He had missed you sooo bad - 10 days without Bridger is like 10 days without purpose. 

The next day you went on another big adventure! 
You rode on your first ATV!
We went out with dad to check mineral and salt.
It was a beautiful day and you were rocked, or rather "bounced" to sleep while riding the ATV. 
It won't be long before dad will let you drive it! (With help of course)

You are loving being back in your cloth diapers - the weeks spent in disposables in California did a little number on your cute ham hocks... But your little tushie is as cute - and as comfy - as can be now that you are back in these great diapers!

You are sleeping great, momma feels well rested when she wakes up and only nurses you 1-2 times at night.
You are still a morning person - you normally wake up at 5-6am and i try to get you back down for an hour or two because momma is not a morning person (as much as dad wishes otherwise).
You like to spend your morning hours lying on your back looking around or playing on your playmat. 
You nap great during the day, and I love cuddling you and napping with you. 

And of course you're still eating like a champ - I can't wait for your checkup next week to see how much you've grown! 

You smile so much now - and your dimples are just about the best things I've ever seen.
You know how to make me smile, even when I'm feeling sad. 
You are even starting to giggle - oh it's just the best!

I don't know what I'd do without you baby boy.
We love you more than you will ever know! 
- momma
