Well, I'm finally here!!
1st WeekHow time flies when you're having fun. I'm already 1 week old! What a great week it was. Grammy stayed with us until Thursday morning and then my Grandma Sue came on Thursday night. Da came Friday night and Aunt Sara came Saturday morning. Grandpappa and Grammy came back Saturday morning and brought Aunt Ann. She is really neat. Uncle Pierce didn't get to come because he hurt his back. Sorry, Uncle Pierce.
Da and Grandma Sue took some more pictures, but haven't gotten them developed yet. There are some new pictures below, and Da will be putting more up as they come in, so keep checking.
Everyone says I am a real good boy. My mommy and Daddy take real good care of me. I love them a lot because they change me when I need it, they feed me when I'm hungry and they take me outside. I really like being outside. They have even taken me to Olive Garden and Jason's Deli!
2nd WeekThis second week was a blur. My mommy and Daddy are definitely getting adjusted to me. I didn't even have any grandparents come to help this week. Anyway, there's not too much to report. My mommy says that I'm doing real good. There are quite a few new pictures, but they were all taken over a week ago. We'll get new ones up just as soon as my Da gets them. Gotta go and explore, so I'll see you later.
UpdatesRather than doing week-by-week, my Da is just going to keep adding on. I'm 3 weeks old now and I already weigh 8 lbs. I'm getting close to being able to lift my head, and I'm really a squirmer! My umbilical cord dropped off last week and now I can take real baths.
My Grandma Sue and Da came from Alice and my Aunt Debi came from Houston to visit this past weekend. We had a good time. We watched the basketball playoffs and I really like the Dallas Mavericks. I hope they win the championship!
I had my two week checkup and everything was great. I don't go back to the doctor until I am 2 months old.... Hooray! Keep checking back for updates and I'll see you all soon.
My mommy and Daddy took me to Ft. Worth to see Grammy and Pop while they went with Uncle Chris and Aunt Sara and some of their friends to a Texas Rangers game. I sure wanted to go!
My Da and GrandmaSue came to see me this past weekend and we went to lots of places. We went to the mall, the Lazy-boy store and HEB! Wow, there were lots of people at the mall!
As you can see from my pictures, I'm really growing. I can already turn myself over from my tummy to my back and I'm only 5 weeks old! Everyone says I'm very strong.
The ladies at Grammy's Church gave me a shower and I got lots of neat things! My Great-grandmother, Ma was there and boy, do I like her. She has promised to spoil me, whatever that means!
Grandma Sue, Da and Aunt Sara came for the 4th of July and we did lots of fun things. Daddy and Da cooked hamburgers and hot dogs and then we went to Ft. Hood and looked at all the neat Army equipment that my Daddy uses. Da, Daddy and I got to get in a Bradley Fighting Vehicle and Daddy showed us how it works. I wanted to shoot the 25mm gun, but there were no bullets. Daddy said that maybe I could do it when I got older. We went home and then went swimming at the motel. It was a fun day!
We went to Schlitterbahn Water Park on August 16 and it was real fun. Daddy and Mommy took me down the slides and I liked it. We also went to San Antonio and visited the Alamo and went to the horse races at Retama Park. Everybody ate 50 cent hot dogs and I just drank milk.
So many things have happened since I last updated my information. I got a tooth, and now I have 4 teeth! I started crawling a long time ago and now I'm standing and moving between furniture. I've had to get more vaccinations and that wasn't fun, but I've been real healthy. Christmas was fun and I got to visit with all my family. Now, I've got a new cousin, Mallory! She belongs to my Aunt Debi and Uncle Marcos who live in Houston. She's pretty cute and I can't wait until we can play together. Well, that's about all for now.
