3 weeks and growing strong!

Yet another great week!

Quiet time with Daddy

Chillin on the deck while Mommy reads:)

Snoozin' with Grandma

On a hike with Mommy :)

I love this thing!

SO happy!

Bath time rocks!


I wore shoes for the first time this week!

I moved from the bassinet to my crib this week:)
... No joke, I rolled from my tummy to my back on Friday!

Mommy had her last leg appointment last week and got some good news! The news is that her ACL ISN'T TORN!!! Yipee! No more surgery for mom!

I get to meet my great grandma this week! Can't wait!

Good morning! Mom and I are up early this morning celebrating --- I just slept for 4 hours straight through the night! Mom came down with a nasty cold this week and I figured she could use the extra rest, so I held off on a couple of my every-other-hour night feedings. I love you mom:).
We had so much fun together this week! Guess what? My umbilical cord fell off a few days ago... mom saved the scab - silly!
I used to really hate baths, but now that my umbilical cord is gone and I can get warm water poured all over me, I really like them!!
We had my first doctor's appointment Tuesday. I grew an inch and a half and gained 11 ounces since last week (7 pounds 14 ounces, 21.5 inches long)... SO big!! :)

Before we left, I managed to go to the bathroom all over Mommy's tummy:)

Every time I make these faces, Mommy and Daddy laugh; I'm getting really good at them!
They call this one "rose bud lips". Daddy says I look just like mom when I do this:).

This is my "one-eyed Willie" face... my personal favorite - one eye resting, the other always taking in the action.
After bath time, I get to play on the floor with my mom and dad!
I visited Daddy's 5:15 a.m. spinning class Friday morning :)!
Life is so good. I smiled (for real, not just gas) at daddy for the first time this morning! I love him!

I can't get enough of my daddy snuggle time!

Look at me holding my head up!

Speechless... :)

"The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him.  My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him all day long!!"  - Psalm 28:7 :)

Thank you Jesus for this wonderful gift!  We are in awe... speechless!

Please welcome Caleb James Camping

For You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  Psalm 139:13-14
