Our little "M&M"

(iPhone picture so not the best quality)
Wyatt did so well again last night. He is eating great! We have to wake him up to eat throughout the night about every 4 hours. (My mom always said "never wake a sleeping baby," but the with his weight the Dr. said to feed every 4 hours) During the day he is eating about every 3 to 3 1/2 hours. After he eats during the day sometimes we are lucky enough to get to have "play-time." With a baby who was 4 weeks early playing doesn't really consist of much other than just talking to him and watching his EVERY move. I could do it ALL day...that's not a joke at all! :) Mark's family has this thing about nicknames. Not like cheesy names or like Em for Emily, like real nicknames. His brother is famous for creating these names, they just happen they aren't created. Ya know what I mean!!?!?!? Anyway, I have always called Mark "Mr." I don't know where it came from it just happened. Well I decided Wyatt is my little M&M, my miniature Mr. LOL!!! I love it!!! Mini Mr. it is!!!

I am lucky enough to have my mom visiting for the next few days. Mark has off starting Wednesday so she will be here while he goes to school. It is really nice to have someone with me, it's really hard to be alone and everything so quiet. I am not ready for that.

Mom got here this morning and we did a few things around the house together. I really wanted to go to we went. I tried to plan this around feeding ( I can't just feed him anywhere) and off we went. We are lucky to have a Target about 3 min. from our house but I didn't want to go to that one...LOL! Wow, bold huh? We drove to a Target Greatland about 15 min. away. We walked around and I picked up a few things we needed and somethings we didn't. Ha! Wyatt wanted to buy Daddy a Wii game he has been wanting really bad so we had to get that. :) After Target I wanted to try Walmart, NOT!!! He started crying in the car and it was about that time again so home we went. It was nice to get out a bit.
We shall see what tonight holds. :) Enjoy a few pictures of our little M&M!
