1 month old and a visit from great friends

Things are still going well, and Henry is really growing. I took him to the dr. on his one month birthday (Sept. 15th), and he weighed 8 lbs. 7 oz. He stretched out to be 23 inches long! He's just growing, growing, growing! Here are a few pics...

One month old!

I love to stretch!

In other news...My friend, Shannon, and her daughter, Mattilyn, came to visit us - Emma and Caroline didn't get to come ;-( . Shannon and I used to teach together in Starkville. We became fast friends. She's like a sister to me; so when I told her we were expecting she booked a ticket quick! I'm so glad she and Mattilyn came. We had such a good time. We ate, shopped, visited, and ate some more!!! We went out for Hibachi one good!!! She also got some great shots of Henry. She's got a really nice camera, so I can't wait for her to send them to me!!! Here a few pics I took when they were here! We miss you already!!!

3 weeks old

Hello everyone!
Grandmas are gone and it's just been Henry and I for the past two days. Jared has been keeping the phone close by in case he needs to come far so good! I'm feeling fantastic! He slept 5 hours last night and probably would have earlier but I wanted to keep him on the 3 hour feeding schedule. Since he's gaining weight so well and growing appropriately, he can sleep up to 5 hours during the night! Woo-hoo!
Henry turned 3 weeks yesterday! I can't believe it's been 3 weeks already. He's such a blessing to us and truly a good baby. He's Jared made, calm, and reserved. He doesn't cry much and is easily self-soothed --- Henry, that is. ;-) I've been watching to make sure that he sleeps on each side evenly (right, back, and left) in order to insure that he has a good shaped head! We also have tummy time every day for at least 2o minutes...he can already turn his head from left to right or right to left while on his tummy! I'm so proud of him! He actually fits into his car seat now (he was too little when we came home from the hospital). I have to admit that I cried a little on Saturday when I put him in it. I just looked at him and said, "Don't grow up so fast!" Ridiculous, I know! I didn't have time to put a picture up today, but I'll try to do it tonight or tomorrow.I like froggies!

Hangin' with Ray

Put your dukes up...I love when daddy reads to me!I really don't care much about this burping thing, but I'll do it if I have to.
