The Happy Baby

Are you a morning person? No, maybe a night owl? Jason and I have been blessed with a baby whose smiling ear to ear at six o'clock in the morning, and just as happy at one a.m.

After sleeping for a few hours at night, Ethan starts to stir sometime after midnight. When we go to check on him, he flashes you his biggest, brightest smile of the day! The only problem is that he wants to play, bobbing his wobbly head around with that gummy smile. It takes everything inside of you not to laugh and play with him.

Don't get me wrong, we still get Mr. Crabby in the evenings between eight and 11 PM. Oh, and of course when he is hungry. But overall, we have a very happy baby bear.


Site Changes

Hi All,

Please be patient while I "upgrade" this site... I just can't figure out what I want it to look like!

Daycare Blues

It's 8:34 AM. I dropped Ethan off at Daycare a little over an hour and a half ago. It's his first day. Our first day being apart for more than a few hours, and I really, really miss him.

Luckily, I found a daycare that is about two blocks away from work. You better believe I will be there daily over my lunch break. I just hope I can catch him while he is awake, and not during nap time!

I wonder what he's doing. Is he sleeping? Are they getting ready to feed him? Does he miss me? Is he scared? Okay, so maybe I'm a little neurotic about the whole thing, but these are the thoughts that are running through my head. I just hope that he doesn't forget about me.

Oh Ethan. How I miss you...


The Three Month Check-Up

On Monday we went to see Ethan's pediatrician, Dr. Shapiro, for his three month check-up. The usual routine, we got Ethan down to his diaper so they could weigh and measure him. He's not a big fan of being undressed in the doctor's office.

This big boy ended up weighing 15 lbs, 4 3/4 oz and measured 25 1/4 inches long. When the doctor came in to see us, we found out that both Ethan's height and weight are in the 90th percentile! Wow!

He also got his second HepB shot and the IPV. He only cried a little bit, but seemed to get over it pretty quickly.


Happy Three Month Birthday, Ethan!

WooHoo! He's three months old today, and what are Ethan's big plans? Well, right now he's sleeping (which is why I'm finally writing this post!).

So here's the birthday boy!

Tomorrow we have his three month check-up with Dr. Shapiro, so we'll see how big he's gotten. I'm guess somewhere in between 15 1/2 and 16 lbs! He's just a big dude.

Watch out, cousin Blake! You two are gonna be the same size in no time!
