I wish these teeth would make their way into Christopher's lower jaw already. He's having a horrible time dealing with the pain and causing me a huge headache. It's hard enough to deal with Christopher at night when it is getting close to his bedtime (he gets EXTREMELY cranky), but now with his teeth coming in it's like World War 3. To make it worse Jeff works the evening shift so he is only home two nights of the week at these times. I'm dealing with it the best that I can but I honestly don't understand how these people with 6 to 8 babies deal with it. Check out our new video of Christopher chatting away with Jeff. At least it is good to know his eating isn't being slowed down by these teeth (he's chubbier than ever)!

Christopher is having another growth spurt but not really in weight. He is too long for his three month clothes :( and his feet are now into size ones and twos. I went through his closet today and i can't believe how big he is getting. We got a few pictures of him in his boots like daddy's and him relaxing in his bath robe & slippers.

The trip down on Sunday was a long a quiet one. We sat on the tour bus and watched movies the whole way. It made time go by quickly. It was about a 10 hour ride from Savannah to DC. After arriving at the hotel in the late evening, everyone was ready to eat. Everyone went their separate ways to the fine dining establishments in the hotel. And they were not cheap. On Monday, we went to get the briefing. We sat in the arena of American University. Boy, what comfy seats…a line of B.S. After the briefing we went to Golden Corral, a command decision. What a poor decision that turned out to be. Everyone wanted to go back to the hotel to relax and try to sleep before getting up at 1:00am on Tuesday. After getting back to the hotel, everyone collapsed in their rooms. I didn’t get that much sleep because the Texas delegation was having a Black Tie & Boot party in the atrium. There is nothing like trying to sleep to “THE STARS AT NIGHT, ARE BIG AND BRIGHT, (BAM, BAM, BAM) DEEP IN THE HEART OF TEXAS!!!!!!” When we got up and out the door, the Texans were still partying. So Tuesday arrives and we go to work. We take turns going to the warming area DC Metro Police set up. While waiting for the shindig to start, I talked to a few Secret Service agents, officers from Montgomery County, MD Police, and a few fellows from Multnomah County, OR Sheriffs. They gave me a patch (so any other officers that want to patch trade, let me know. I’m starting a collection). The parade starts, a little late, but everyone is in high spirits. Our area had no criminal issues. We only had to deal with children who were out there for so long they started getting hypothermia. Just to show people that police care and help those in need, every SCMPD officer handed over the hand warmers that were given to us in the morning. We could deal with the cold; we didn’t want to see the kids hurting. We did the best we could for them. So Tuesday goes by and now it’s Wednesday. We get up at 5am to leave by 6. So at 7am when we leave, we are glad to be going home. We stopped for breakfast at the Cracker Barrel. Yum. Back on the road. We stop for lunch and fuel in Kenly, NC. It had snowed pretty well apparently. It was hilarious to see Good Ol’ Southern Boys playing the snow. Me, being from Ohio, was just like “yea, white powdery stuff that isn’t cocaine”. There were snowball fights. I and another officer decided to make a snowman before we left. He was sworn in and handed his sidearm. We boarded the buses and left for home. We arrived in Savannah around 6pm, and everyone grabbed their stuff and ran to their cars. I got of the bus to see my beautiful wife and baby boy, I was glad to be home.

My friend Lindsey is having her baby shower soon for, soon to arrive, Lauren. Instead of just giving her a basic gift I thought I would bring out my crafty skills, and try to make a diaper cake. It turned out great! I now have my "gift" idea for baby showers in the future. Not to mention (hint hint) if anyone here in the Savannah area would like for me to make one for you just let me know ;)

Evidently little kids are really liking Jeff as a police officer because a little girl gave him a picture while he was on a call to her house the other night. I cracked me up at first because she gave him a red hat, red boots, green pants and green eyes (which she was a little upset about because she didn't realize his eyes were blue). Not to mention she put him in rain drops and he's standing on a funky looking road. Other than those small things it was a striking resemblance of him. She even gave him a star on his chest.... cute! ;)

Thanks Kim! I haven't opened that folder in a while. This is a picture of my little brother Jacob at about 8 months eating some yummy baby food!
