The Karate Kid

Here's a little video of our own Ralph Macchio.  It's fun to watch him hold his hands back, then "chop" them out like a karate punch.  
Zachary had an eventful weekend.  Dan, Barb, and Nonni stopped by on Saturday and had the chance to see Zach awake and feeding in the afternoon.  He had a bit of a late night, not really getting any real sleep until Daddy returned home from Chili's (after midnight).  Today Zachary got a later start to the day, but got plenty of rest.  By not falling asleep until late, he slept for quite some time, then arose later in the morning.  Our little fighter is definitely growing, and his appetite has grown accordingly.  He breast feeds now for a rather lengthy time, and some times he still needs a small bottle to satisfy his needs.  No matter how much he eats, we're happy he is feeding so well, and sleeping for rather lengthy times as well.  He's really a good baby, and we're happy with both his progress and his overall pleasant demeanor.  
This evening Zachary made his first trip with Mommy and Daddy to church.  After all the thoughts, and prayers he was finally able to enter the house of the Lord.  Mommy and Daddy were more than happy to offer our thanks and praise to God for answering so many of our prayers, and praying for continued healing.  He did very well throughout mass, only letting out a couple brief screams, and sleeping for a majority of the time (kinda like Daddy, who many say didn't stay awake for an entire mass until he was 6 years old).  After mass he made his first trip to dinner out with Mommy and Daddy, and is now in the process of trying to wind down after all of the hustle and bustle and attempting to fall back to sleep.
Tomorrow, we are off to have his new casts put on and celebrating Zachary's 1 month birthday.  It's hard to believe that much time has already passed, but we are thankful for every moment so far, and looking forward to the wonderful memories ahead.  With Thanks and Praise - Brian + Kimmie
