Ya'll got Ya'll's Work Cut Out For Ya'll

Let the indoctrination begin!
OK, it's been a few weeks since an update but that's because we've been busy with Gus and his numerous needs. They are not kidding when they say being a stay-at-home mom is a full time job. He is now 8 weeks old and doing great! I have to say, despite sleepless nights and diaper changes, I thoroughly love being a dad. He gets cuter with each passing day and is beginning to give back a little with semi-smiles and not-so-blank stares. From total newborn infant dependency he's slowly but surely leaving the fog of nothingness and emerging into the bright light of consciousness... I hope he's not a bully.On the adoption front, we are going to have 4 visits from our social worker before the adoption can be finalized. I know it's necessary and for the good of the baby, but it still makes me a little nervous. The good news is, we've managed to keep Gus alive for 8 weeks so we're doing something right. Tomorrow is her first visit so I will talk more about that later. Wish us luck!

here are some more pics of Gus' antics:

aw he's so cute! and looks like he'll be a great sports fan!... i think he's signing: "we're number one!!!"

wendell you look like you've grown younger, like such a proud daddy, i guess having that little bundle of joy can do that to you! i'm sure the social worker will have a great time visiting you guys, they're probably used to seeing real icky messy families not nice happy and cute ones like yours!
