Chubber Bubber

My dearest Chubber Bubber,
(aka William, Willsie, Wills, Bubber chubber, Handsome Boy, The cute Man, Wiggly Worm, Wiggly Squirm, The Big Squirm, and so on)

We went in for your 2 month well baby exam today. And my little man - you have put on some weight!!
6 lbs of adorable weight that is.

And FOUR inches of growth! That's 2 inches a month!

Then the Dr. asked if you were making "goo" sounds and you most definitely are. He asked how long you are sleeping at night (3-4 hrs) and he said "that's perfect!"
He then asked if you were a cry baby. I don't know why but I almost laughed out loud. For some reason a medical doctor asking if your baby is a "cry baby" cracks me up. And most definitely are not a crybaby.

He then checked over your body and could not stop saying how big you are and how he can't believe you don't cry even when being man-handled.

He then asked if you could hold your head up, which is funny because you have been doing that for weeks, and I mean REALLY hold it up. So he flipped you over and tested our your neck and then you lifted it waaaay high and rolled over!! The doctor was shocked!

In conclusion - you rock! You are 95% percentile in height and weight, just like your brother.

So proud of you!!!

This is your new, oh so sweet baby sound & the face you make when you say it. I love it so much. It takes me back to all the times your brother & sister started saying it as babies too. Those were good times. I can hardly wait for "ma-ma."

How bizarre

Dear children,
Here's the latest and greatest in our growing file of bizarre happenings around here:

 Luke: This is how I found you sleeping the other night. What's with the legs?? I tried to lay them down thinking I was doing you a favor - not so much. You raised them back up again...while sleeping. Bizarre!
This picture while bizarre in and of itself is William's head with two clips in it. I guess when you have an older sister and you are a helpless baby, clips are bound to find their way into your hair. Bizarre!

Back to work

I can't believe it's been almost 2 months already!!
But baby - it's time to get back to work. And luckily my job and boss are flexible enough that you get to come with
 Thank goodness for that because I don't think I would stand to be away.
Look at that chub! Your double chin (and mine) are out of control! :) So kissable (yours that is, not mine)


When my brother was little he used to do what he called "essss-periments" which translates to "experiments." He would rustle up all sorts of things from the cabinet and fridge and mix them together. 

 When I had kids I actually had the thought "I wonder if my kids will do that" and my Char - you are my first one to do it. I got a chance to tell you the story about Uncle J and you thought it was great.

 This is what you did when I said - "wait! hold still!! and smile!"
 This essss-periment is peanut butter, jelly, milk, lemonade and water. You mixed it, left it outside to "harden" and then wanted me to bake it....
That my lovely child is where I drew the line. I love your creativity!

3 baby friends

I am BLESSED with many friends who all had babies within a year of each other. Here are three of the 7 total.

Will on the left 4 weeks, Francesca in the middle 7 weeks & Owen on the right 9 weeks.

I love Owen's expression here. So delicious. And Will - toootally conked as only a 4 week old could be. Too cute.
