Bumbo Domination!

This week, little Juniper, you sat in your Bumbo chair for the first time! You love sitting in it and nibbling on your giraffe. Mommy's beginning to think that you might be teething - although she's not feeling ready for that! You are talking and moving so much more now. You are this close to rolling over!

String bean baby

11 weeks old. Little Jude, you are 24 inches long and almost 13 pounds. You certainly have your mother's height! I cannot get over how big you are getting. 

This past week you've really found your hands to play with. When you get really upset, you put your whole hand in your mouth and use it as a pacifier. Whenever I carry you around, you grab on to my shirt and pull it toward you. You've started cooing and giggling more and it melts my heart every time. We even have this little game that we play where you put your face against mine and let out a teeny tiny growl :)

10 Weeks

Soon, my little burrito, you will be 3 months old. 3 months old! I can't even grasp that thought. Soon 3 months, soon 6 months, soon you'll be a year old. Soon you'll be trying solid foods, soon you'll be scooting around the house. As excited as I am for the day that you can crawl around the house and explore things, as thrilled as I will be when you can finally express yourself, I'm a little heartbroken that you are growing so fast. A little piece of me wants you to remain my little bean forever :)

A Minute To Breathe

Things have been terribly hectic around here. So hectic, that I've fallen behind on Jude's weekly photo postings. Some days I am amazed that I can remember or find time to brush my teeth. 

Weeks 8 and 9 are a perfect example of how things have been going around here. Some days are good days, some days are grumpy days. But every day is a new, different, and exciting day for us.

Week 8's photo shoot went fine. Our little bean was nice and calm. 

Week 9, however, did not go as well. You know it's bad when these are the best shots! :)
