Carrots and Rice Cereal Anyone?

Mom was feeding me my first carrots with rice cereal. She looked away for just a second to tell my dad something and SURPRISE! This eating real food gig is great! Who knew I could have so much fun in such a flash!

Thanksgiving at my house

On Friday my mom hosted Thanksgiving - that was fun too! I sure am lucky to have two Thanksgivings! Here is a toast from my Grandma Sandy and my Aunt Corie!

My first Thanksgiving at my Grandpa and Danielle's house

I met many of my relatives I had not met before! I slept most if the day but I sure loved the way the table was decorated. I also saw my first ALMOST full moon! My grandpa and danielle have a beautiful home in the country! I also spent quality time with my aunt mimi from france!

10 Reasons I am THANKFUL for Jack

1. I have never smiled so much in my life, now that I am HIS MOM.
2. He laughs, marches and flaps his arms when I change his diaper (as though it is a huge event)!
3. He smiles through his pacifier.
4. He pants and flails his arms and legs when he hears me come into his room.
5. He fills my heart with so much love, it sometimes feels like it may burst.
6. He cherishes sleep.
7. He has changed my mom's life.
8. He lights up my dad's face.
9. He thinks his daddy is the best thing since sliced bread (I mean rice cereal)!
10. Because of Jack, I now know the true definition of "indescribable".

Family Pumpkin Patch

Jack's first HALLOWEEN!

On Jack's first Halloween - we went to the doctor's for his 4 month appointment! He weighed 12 lbs. 12 oz. and 24 3/4 inches. He went from 75th percentile to 25 percentile in weight - she said he was long and lean! So rice cereal it is! We tried it on Halloween night but he was not into it - very exhausted from the shots, etc. We will try again tonight.

Patrick kept mentioning how he thought Jack would look so cute and perfect as Charlie Brown - Gina surprised P and made Jack this costume. P was surprised when he got home!

Patrick, Jack and Calvin's pumpkins -
Gina's rotted before she could even carve it!

A lllooonnnggg day for Mr. Jack!
