Sittin' Pretty!



On Tuesday we tried out Gwen's Bumboo chair and she loved it. As you can tell she looks so old in the chair, sitting up and all. Makes me sad to see her growing so fast. We took her out after a few short minutes, not because she didn't like it but because I didn't like seeing her look so old. I always have to remind her that she is still a baby. She likes to not sleep like a baby (only sleeps about 2 hours all day...should be more), doesn't lay still like a baby (she likes to constantly be moving), not eat food like a baby (we need to have cereal in the formula), and not easy going like a baby - she has a temper (or what grandma says as a distinct personality) at 6 weeks, and now trying to sit like a big girl. But she did look cute doing it!

Happy Birthday Jamie!!!






Today is Jamie's 29th birthday. What an old man, huh?!
Lots of celebrations are taking place. Last night we went out to dinner with his mom, brother, brother's girlfriend and our niece at Red Robin. Jamie didn't know we were meeting them there, so it was a great suprise. Tonight we are celebrating with a taco dinner at our house. Then on Friday we are going to the Brewer Game (just the two of us...Gwen is staying with Grandma and Grandpa). I am excited to give him his presents so hopefully he will like them! I will update with pictures as they come.

Love ~ Kelly






Update:



Jamie says he had a wonderful Birthday! I think the pictures say he liked his presents! His favorite is obviously the one shown in the pictures below (his authentic Ryan Braun jersey). I thught he would be really excited for the game we are going to friday, but now I am dealing with him watching and yelling at the t.v. since he wants the that game to mean something. Who knew men could get so worked up by a sporting event on television. I didn't know what I was getting myself into!
The rest of the night was a lot of fun. Oh yeah...I just about burned the house down when making the taco shells. No big deal, only about 4 foot flames (literally). We were really lucky we were able to put it out. Jamie has also mentioned that he won't let me live it down, I guess I deserve that. Yes, we did have enough shells even with the fire episode.

Here is a recent picture of our little Gwen. She just turned 7 weeks old...can you believe it is 7 weeks already, yet I don't remember life without her...crazy! At our last appointment she was 10 pounds 3 ounces (almost two weeks ago now). She is growing good. Her eating has gotten alot better...knock on wood. She is definitely the apple of all our eyes.
Her newest facination is the Lion mirror above her changing table. When she sees it she goes crazy. She kicks her legs really fast, waves her arms while smiling and talking to him. If is such a fun thing to watch. She is starting to smile at things now including people. It is a lot of fun watching her interact with things.

A what site?! Did you say Blob? No Blog!

Well, this is something new for me but I thought we would give it a try. My cousin Missy and friend Kristine both have a blog and I LOVE looking at them so I thought with the birth of Gwen it was a perfect time to attempt one. I am not very good with technology, or know much about it so hopefully it will work out. I am going to try to put pictures of Gwen on here so if some show up you will see I figured it out, if not well...I gave up and went to bed.

Well...here goes nothing.
