Extra-Early Arrival

Our son decided to surprise us with his arrival four weeks ahead of schedule, a week earlier than Mommy thought he'd arrive.

RE was born at 7:17 pm on July 27th. He weighed 7 pounds, 2 ounces, and was 20 inches long.

We adore him (even his big sister), and are so excited that he has arrived. That being said, RR isn't yet sure if he should stay.

What's a Spoon?

Little Nattie Bumbus is no longer so little... last weekend she graduated from her infant car seat to the next level and is now sitting facing out in her stroller...

This weekend she decided she was ready for some real food and we attempted to feed her some rice cereal. I'm not sure she actually ate any, but it was fun to watch her try...

Happy Halloween!

And the winner was... a little bunny!

She's been wearing bunny slippers that one of her grandmothers gave her lately... it was the natural choice.

5 Months

Our little one is five months old. We can hardly believe it.

We continued a tradition this year and have now made it a family tradition... a visit to the local pumpkin patch. Little Bumbus scouted out a pumpkin almost as tall as she and declared it her own by pointing at it, sort of.

The house is decorated and our pumpkins are carved for the one trick-or-treater that comes every year... the little boy who used to live in our house.

What will little Bumbus be? Time will tell... she has three costumes she's currently debating. We will see what strikes her fancy tomorrow evening.

4 Months!

Little Bumbus isn't so little anymore.

She's four months and has started "camp" (aka daycare). She seems to like it, and has become more social, even after only a week. She likes to "chat" and is constantly observing everything around her.

My favorite moment as of late was when some friends invited us over for dinner. One of our hosts, Brian, was talking to Bumbus and every time he looked at her, she looked the other way. He asked if it was just him. I had no idea and then noticed that she does it to me too.

She likes to stand (parent supported) and takes steps here and there as well. She seems to have no interest in rolling or crawling... just walking. She's a risk taker... just like her dad.

15 Weeks

My favorite moment from the week...

Little bumbus threw up all over me, and then started laughing...

Her first laugh, and I will never forget it.

Life is Exhausting

Ah, to be an infant...

Too tired to stay awake after playing with your toys...
