16 Weeks!

Holy moly!  16 weeks!  This week has brought more changes like cereal, splashing in the bath, and finding our feet!  Enjoy more cereal and playing pictures!

15 Weeks!

I’m 15 weeks old!  Big news:  I’m offically in my size two diapers now.  Mom and dad cannot believe how I have grown.  I’m 14lbs 9oz and 25.5 inches!  I’ve doubled my birth weight, can you believe it?


I’m throwing in a day 3 picture, just in case you forgot how little I was…


12 Weeks!

Mom had to work yesterday so I stayed home with Dad.  We had fun reading and working on my playmat.  Mom was relieved to get home, she doesn’t do too well away from me.  Luckily for her she has lots of great people at work who can help her through her days without me!  I should probably give it up for Dad too, I’m very lucky to have a dad who helps out mom so much and loves me like he does! 

**Shout-out to Aunt Becky who is all moved into her new place in CA!  I miss you tons!

Eleven Weeks!

Canton celebrated the eleventh week of his life by continuing to lift himself up on his chest and practicing sitting.  He kills Mike and I with laughter with all his little quirks, like his twenty-minute college style power naps (this boy seriously does not sleep) and how he loves to hold his bottle.  Where is time going?? 

Laughing Man

Canton has been knocking out many of the fourth month old gross motor milestones, so I was becoming a paranoid mom when he hadn’t laughed (usually happens by the end of three months, and yes I know he’s not there yet).  He’s been squealing in delight for several weeks, I knew a laugh was coming I just had to be patient, which is not my best quality as many of you know.  As luck would have it I got his very first laugh on video!  I feel so blessed to have this time with him to see these unforgetable moments.  Enjoy!  **Video is about 50 seconds long, he laughs in the first 20 and after that it is just me being dumb trying to get him to laugh again.

Two Months!

Canton is two months old today.  These milestones are starting to become bittersweet, of course we are so excited and feel so blessed he’s a happy, healthy, growing baby, we just can’t believe how fast time is going.  Next month at this time I’ll be returning to work and I’ll miss our time together tremendously. 

Canton spent the day sitting in his new Bumbo seat and listening to music.  He loves to move to the music and enjoyed listening to Mike tell him all about the IPOD, Mike is already making him a techno boy!

The Incredible Shrinking Car Seat

As we continue to marvel over our blessing that is Canton we came across a picture of Canton in his car seat on the day we brought him home (5/15/09).  Seven weeks later, we have our big man, so alert and interacting with the world around him.  We can’t wait to see what the next seven weeks bring (except returning to work!).

Five Weeks!

I’m five weeks today!  I spent the day with all my visitors and showing off all my tricks.  Mom and Dad found my future babysitter in Hannah, Uncle Jesse entertained me, and I got to see Mal and Pap again!  I went to the doctor yesterday and I’m 9 lbs 8 oz and 21 inches, Mom and Dad cannot believe how much I have grown!
