I bought an outfit for Jacob after he was born that i thought was absolutely adorable. It was a Radio Flyer outfit that has a butt-flap, and a cute hat. I told mom she could never throw it away because one day my baby would wear it too. Well I tried it on him the other day and it is still as adorable as it ever was. The hat wouldn't fit though (that's what we get for having a super genius baby!).

I love the south!!!!!! I can't really remember what snow or cold even feels like. Today we have temps in the mid 70's and I couldn't be more ecstatic. Christopher got to try on his sandals for the first time, and though he didn't like the flip-flops ("oh no something is between my toes") he didn't fuss with the regular brown ones I got him. He has been growing into his temperament more and more these days. I have to hide when I eat anything because now that he knows that spoons go in his mouth he thinks everything I eat he should have. I know he is wanting to try new things, but by golly he is only 4 months old. He did try a sip of daddy's Coke today (what a funny face that was).
Daddy has been trying hard to spend more time with Christopher and I. I know that his schedule is really difficult to maneuver around but we're figuring out ways for them to spend as much time together as they can. Christopher lights up when Jeff walks in the room and is trying his hardest to say "Dada". Admittedly I would love to hear him say "momma" first (and I am working on it day and night) it looks like daddy will win this battle. We have been going a little camera crazy lately, and have a lot of cute pictures, so this blog will probably be extra long. I'm still trying to figure out how to put the video's on my blog instead of through You Tube so check back to see if I had the "TADA" moment.

....was an adventure in itself. All and all it was a fun Saturday afternoon, but it started out a little on the "blah" side. She received some really nice gifts and a lot of clothes for little Lauren (whose appearance should only be 3 weeks away). I was glad that she loved the diaper cake and everyone was asking me to make some for upcoming baby showers in their families. Christopher ended up not attending the event because it was in the afternoon during his nap and meal time, which would have turned into a disaster, so he spent the afternoon with daddy. They supposedly went to watch airplanes and visited a park for a very short walk by the lake.

Check out the video above... it's of Christopher eating. We are sending it in to AFV because... well you'll see. It should be up as soon as it loads on You Tube.

Tuesday we had Christopher's 4 month check up. Our little one is not so little anymore. He is now roughly between the size of a 7 or 8 month old. I know, I couldn't believe it either! He now weighs 16 pounds and 5 ounces, is about 26.5 inches tall, and has a larger than life head circumference.

Somebody turned 4 months old today. Our little booger is making leaps and bounds toward being independent. He's starting to scoot and turn on the floor and the other day we found him at the head of his bed under his stuffed animals. Needless to say they are no longer in his crib. He's also trying to sit up on his own and hasn't quite gotten the hang of rolling over yet. Tuesday is his four month check-up so we will update you more then.

It's hard to believe that one year ago today Jeff and i found out that Christopher was on his way. He was the best Valentines day present ever. This year I went to extremes and decorated Jeff's truck while he was at work. This is how it turned out...

After two years with my dependable old phone I decided twas time for a change. Jeff and I were due to upgrade and resign for another two years last night so it was off to Verizon for the evening. Jeff got his new phone about a month ago and he wanted one of the new push to talk phones so when I was choosing last night I also would get the PTT feature since we liked it so well on Nextel. Any who the phone I picked out is the Motorola Adventure (If you're ever going to upgrade and have Verizon I strongly recommend it!) because it has the high quality photo and video capabilities. Here is some pictures I took of Christopher this morning. If you can't tell he loves, LOVES, LOVES his snugly lamb blanket. He won't sleep without it.

We'll we have made it through the teething issues...finally! Christopher now has 2 pearly white teeth in his bottom gum. You can't really see it in the picture (because he wouldn't hold still), but they are there. After 3-4 weeks of screaming and a lot of headaches it's nice to see this milestone completed. I have been busy doing more art projects, looking for jobs, and preparing for Niki's visit next month. I'm so excited to see her I can hardly wait.
