Sorry it's been so long!

Sorry it's been so long since I've written, I've been a very busy boy. I had my 4 month check-up and my doctor is so proud of me. I am 14 lbs and 25.5 inches long! I am doing so well considering where I started from. I roll over all the time now and am working on sitting up. I prefer to stand all of the time now which makes Daddy worry that I won't learn to crawl and will just walk. I doubt that will happen but I guess we'll see. I even have two teeth now!! They are my bottom two and sorry there are no pictures of them as I refuse to share them unless you are lucky enough to catch me at the right moment. Mommy and Daddy have both tried numerous times and so far I have out smarted them. Last weekend I went and met Santa Claus for the first time and I didn't cry at all. Hope he brings me lots of good stuff this year, though there isn't really anything I need as I am spoiled enough already. I even experienced my first blizzard! We got over 10 inches of snow and then ice. It has been really interesting though I haven't been placed in it yet. I'm sure that will come once the temp gets a bit higher. I am looking forward to all of the Christmas gatherings as I will get to see all of my family again and hopefully meet some that I haven't yet met. Below are some random pictures of my last couple of weeks.

I am helping Santa this year and I am ready to go.
He finally gets close to me and thinks he can just have my blanket. I think not!!!

I really enjoy my Johnny Jumper.

I have started to fall asleep wherever I please.

My first time with baby food and they gave me green beans :(

Yep, I now fall asleep wherever no matter how uncomfortable.

I even slept while Mommy put me in my snow suit and gloves for the first time.

4 months old today!

I am 4 months old today and wow how I have grown! In the last few weeks I have been doing more and more. My two bottom teeth are working their way in and I have not been happy about it. Hopefully they will make their debut soon! I can now roll over both ways and now love to be on my tummy more than on my back. Daddy even found me sleeping on my belly this morning. I have learned how to squeal so I love doing that really loud and then I laugh. Speaking of which I am now full of giggles and share them on a regular basis. I am such a good baby and have been sleeping 8 - 9 hours straight each night, which Mommy and Daddy love. I had my appt with my NICU doctors last week and they say that I am doing everything I should be which was great news and now I don't have to see them again until I am 9 months old!! On Wednesday I will be seeing my regular doctor and I have to get my 4 month shots :( Hopefully I won't be too much of a bear afterwards but we'll see. Other than that Christmas is almost here and I can't wait to see all of the lights and experience snow even though Mommy and Daddy say it needs to hold off as long as possible. Well I'm sure a lot of new changes will be coming over the next couple of weeks so be sure to keep up! I am about as long as my Pooh Bear!
I feel asleep in my highchair for the first time while Mommy was feeding me.

Here is another shot of the event.

Once I woke up I needed a bath.

I chew anything I can get in my mouth.

Daddy reading me a story.

I slept with my head against my crib and it left some marks on my forehead and top of my head. Luckily they are now gone.

Happy Birthday Grayson!!!

Today is my cousin Grayson's 2nd birthday. Last weekend we celebrated and I really enjoyed my time with all of my family, though I missed my cousin Tye. This was the first time that I was with them all in one room. Below are some pictures of our wonderful day together.
Me with my cousins, Brittany, Drake, Julia, Emerson, and Grayson. The birthday boy is on the right in the yellow shirt!

Me in the bumbo and party hat. I actually didn't mind either of them.

Here we all are together.

All of us playing games and I was really getting into it.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!! Well it was my first and wasn't too bad. Daddy had to work so the night before I helped him prepare what we could ahead of time. Then on Thanksgiving morning Mommy and I got it all in the oven so it would be ready to eat when Daddy got home. It smelled great so I can't wait until next year when I get to eat some of it. Then on Friday Mommy and I went to Wisconsin to visit my Grandparents. First we went to Grandpa and Grandma Bird's and I got to meet my Aunt Ashley for the first time. Then we went to Grandpa and Grandma Cherry's and there I also got to meet my Aunt Diane, Uncle Mike, Uncle Jim, and cousins Brianna and Brady. Great-grandma Pauline was there too. It was a very busy day for me. I was very exhausted by the time I got home but I was a very good boy and didn't cry once! Below are some random photos from the last couple of days.

A Lazy Sunday

Today was a lazy relaxing Sunday. I have started teething so I have not been the happiest of babies the last few days. Dad did a couple emergency runs to Wal-Mart and I now have Baby Motrin and Baby Orajel. Hope this works!!! I am 3 and 1/2 months old now and wow is the time flying. I am really close to rolling over from my back to my belly but haven't yet figured out I need to move my shoulder that gets pinned. I am a pro at rolling from tummy to back. I am liking my cereal and have been eatting it every night. Tonight I tried Oatmeal cereal for the first time and loved it. Below are some random pictures over the last couple of weeks and with my first Thanksgiving coming I'm sure there will be a lot more.
Looking so cute!

I have learned to spit so feeding time is now very messy but fun!

My first time in a Packers outfit. I look so handsome and go PACK!!!

Me, Daddy, and Snoopy. The closest Snoopy has ever gotten :)

I had cereal!

Tonight I had my first taste of rice cereal! I wasn't too sure what to think but it went much better than what was expected. I am growing into such a big boy and hopefully I will get some good food soon as cereal is sort of boring. Mommy and Daddy can't wait for me to make my cute faces when I try new things so it is going to get fun in our house very soon.

My first time in my highchair, not sure what to think.

Here let me help you with that :)
Here we go!

What is this???
Ok it's not so bad.

So tired after a new experience.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween to everyone! It was my first one and I had a lot of fun being a giraffe. I enjoyed taking pictures with my pumpkins and actually loved wearing my costume. I did not go out Trick or Treating as it was too cold and I am too little for candy but I will look forward to it next year. Hope you enjoy my pictures.

I'm 3 months old today!!!

I am 3 months old today. Wow time has gone so fast and I have grown a lot! Life started off a bit rough for me but I have sure made up for lost time. Below are some pictures to show just how far I have come.

Yeah I am 3 months old today!
3 months old, I'm almost able to use this. My head needs a bit more work first.

2 months old, I'm getting a bit bigger!

1 month old, I think I may be too small for this.

Finally coming home after 2 weeks in the hospital!

Daddy's first time holding me.

Here I am!

Happy Birthday Daddy!

Today is my Daddy's 29th birthday! I got to see candles for the first time and I was awed by them. I couldn't stop staring. I even got Daddy a present, a Transformers T-shirt as I know that is one of his favorites. Someday I am sure he will tell me all about them and perhaps even let me watch some of the old cartoons with him. I am so excited! Today was also my day with Daddy so it was extra special. He took some pictures of me as we headed out to lunch with Aunt Abby and to run some errands. He can always catch me smiling. Also are some pictures of me and Daddy together. We had such a great day! Tomorrow I will be 3 months old! Wow the time has flown.

Heading out with Daddy.
Daddy and I, so cute!

Can you see how much we look alike?

I love grabbing at Daddy's chin :)
