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 :)

It's Been Awhile

Well it's been a wee bit crazy in our household since my last posting. We have all been ill so Mommy and Daddy haven't been taking too many pictures. Don't worry though as this week will be very exciting for me so lots of photos and updates will be made. Tomorrow is Daddy's birthday and then on Thursday I will be 3 months old! Of course we can't forget that Saturday is my first Halloween! Wow I will be a busy little man and Mommy will be sure to get lots of pictures of me in my costume for everyone to see. Be sure to check back :) Below are some random pictures of my week.

Split in half and left behind

On Saturday Mommy and Daddy went to the Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Wisconsin Badgers game and left me for the first time with Aunt Abby and Uncle Jeff. I am split in half as I don't yet know which team will be my favorite but I'm sure I will make a good decision some day. I had a great day with Aunt Abby and Uncle Jeff and when Mommy and Daddy got home I was happy as ever and even slept almost 12 hours straight!!! Wow, they liked that so now Aunt Abby and Uncle Jeff have to watch me more often so my parents can get a good nights sleep. It was a great day and a great football game even though Mommy's Badgers lost and Daddy's Hawkeyes won. At least I didn't have two sad parents which I guess is a positive to them not liking the same teams.

Hi Aunt Abby! I see you :)

I rolled over!!!

Tonight Mommy decided to do tummy time with me on my boppy as I seem to like that now. She then decided to see if I could do it with just laying on the floor. I lasted about a minute when I decided I was going from my belly to my back!!! Mommy and Daddy were so proud of me. Even Uncle Doug saw me do it. A few Christmas' ago Grandma Jill got Mommy a cool gift that is a blanket but you get to choose the picture that goes on it. Mommy finally sent in for it and put our favorite picture of me on it and wow am I larger than life on this thing. It will be a really neat memento to have forever though I may not appreciate it when I am in high school. I am just growing like crazy now and will be 3 months old next week!

My larger than life blanket. WOW I'm huge on there!

Right after the big moment. See I just wanted to eat my hand :)

My arm is so yummy!

Having so much fun.

Liking my tummy time on the boppy!

Brrr it''s cold out there

It was rather chilly this morning so mommy put me in my hat and gloves that she found to go with my snowsuit. I actually didn't even cry when she did this which was great as I usually scream my head off when I am placed in a hat. Perhaps I am getting better and won't have to scream every time we go somewhere this winter as I'm sure a hat and gloves are about to become my normal attire. I also have been so worn out with my new routine that I haven't been taking very long naps during the day so at night I am very tuckered out. Hopefully I will adjust soon as mommy and daddy would like to spend time with me and all I want to do is sleep.Not quite sure about this!
Oh I think I do like this :)
So tired from my busy day :(

Day with Daddy

I have spent time with Daddy by myself a few hours at a time but today we had a full 9 hour day just the two of us. It was so nice to just be here with him and bond just us boys. I was really good and didn't fuss too overly much which was good as I didn't go to bed at a very decent time last night like I had the two nights before. Daddy was even able to catch me smiling in some pictures which Mommy hasn't really been able to do. I just know that there is so much Daddy has to show me, like today he told me how to fold laundry and showed me how it's done. So now I will look forward to each Wednesday as that will be Daddy and me day.

1st Day of Daycare

Today was my first day at daycare and it was a WONDERFUL day. I woke up this morning full of smiles and was ready for my new adventure. Mom did really well and was able to get through the day without me but was sure happy to see me when she got home. Ms. Rachel even took a picture of me doing tummy time on the boppy and sent it to mommy at work so she could see how good I was doing. Daddy then picked me up and we got to hang out just the two of us until mommy got home. I hope all the days go this well as then it will be easier on all of us to adjust to our new schedule. Ready for my new adventure!

My First Snow

Wow this morning I woke up to something I had never seen before, SNOW! It is only October 10th and it has never snowed this early before ever in history. I am not quite sure yet what I will think of this as I was inside where it was nice and warm but perhaps I will like it when I am old enough to play in it. The nice thing is it stopped after an hour and it melted by the afternoon. I like playing outside and won't be able to soon so I hope winter holds off for a bit yet.

Let's see if this works :)

Well I am 2 1/2 months old now and my mommy finally posted something of me! Better late than never :) I finally fit in 0-3 month clothes and am growing like a weed. As of my check-up I am 11 lbs. 1 oz and 22 3/4 inches long! I am finally in the 40th percentile. My first day at daycare is going to be on Monday and I will have a little friend to play with who is 7 months old. Mommy is a little nervous about this but it should go well. Here are some pictures of me in my big boy pjs tonight.
