Cullen & "The Mobile"

Cullen wanted me to post a short video of his FAVORITE activity, aside from the swing of course - watching the mobile. He smiles, coos, and giggles at the rotating green bunnies. He just loves the mobile. We must visit the mobile at least 3 times a day. It truly brightens his day. He is really growing and changing these past few weeks - a whole new world has opened up for him :) It is so exciting to watch (and he is the cutest baby in the world too).

The Dreaded Tummy Time with Dad - May 2, 2009

Daddy made me use the dreaded tummy time today - one day after my 4 week birthday. He knows I HATE TUMMY time - but is determined to follow the doctors orders. He knows I am an "Advanced" child - but insists on using that childish tummy time contraption. Some day he will realize I don't need tummy time.... someday...

My First Big Boy Bath! - April 29, 2009

I waited almost four weeks for my umbilical cord to fall out for that long awaited big boy bath! Daddy got to use the big boy bath cup and scrubbed me clean. I loved it! Thank you Daddy for giving me the best baths :)

My Family and Friends Visit! - April 2009

April was a busy month for me! Not only was I new to this world, but all my new family and friends came and visited me! I love them so much! I just wish they lived closer. Carol and Rich Massengill, Uncle Georgie and Aunt Liz, and Aunt Heather and Uncle Dee came from far and wide to see me. I can't thank them enough!

A String of Firsts!

This blog is dedicated to my recent firsts - my first night in my big boy bed, my first walk, my first bath, my first easter, my first book, my first car ride, and of course, my first dreaded tummy time.

My Birthday - April 3rd!

My birthday started off as any normal day. I was sleeping comfortably in my mommy's tummy - still debating on when to join the world. I was feasting on leftovers of queso, chips, and of course, a dash of jelly beans. Every growing little boy needs a well balanced diet which includes sugary treats. I knew I would be forced to settle with milk in the new world - so I felt I would just take my sweet time going down the tunnel.

Around 5am I woke up to feel some movement. This can't be it! I am not ready! Don't force me to go! My scheduled induction is not until next Tuesday - I still have four more days of jelly beans and milkshakes!

There was no turning back at this point. God and my great grandfather had already chosen my birthday. It was set in stone. Thinking god had given me a few more days to relax, the truth finally came out. I was destined to share my great grandfather's birthday - the real reason I was 5 days late!

The delivery wasn't so bad. It was rather a quick and pain free process. I started coming down the tunnel at 3 and was out by 3:30pm. My mom did great!
My birthday was a great birthday. I got to finally meet my mommy and daddy. I have been hearing their voices for almost 10 months and finally I got to meet them in person. It was definately a day to remember. Happy Birthday Me!
