  • Holding head up in 10-15 minute intervals
  • Turning head from side to side 
  • Making eye contact 
  •  Focusing on objects
  • Mimicking faces & noises
  • Grunts ALL the time!
  • Coos at toys
  • Reaching for toys on playmat 
  • Trying to smile, but its a not so cute crooked grin;)
  • Snuggling with daddy at night and mommy in the morning
  • Bath time
  • Riding in the car
  • Strolling around the neighborhood
  • Starring at the ceiling fan
  • Listening to music
  • Looking at bright lights 
  • Going outside
  • His soothie pacifier
  • Stretching out flat and kick, kick, kicking! 
  • He doesn't LOVE being swaddled, but we have to at night so he doesn't wake himself up. He will squirm at first but then conks out!
  • He loves to lay on my chest to nap and I pat that little booty!
  • Outing to breakfast @ Cracker Barrel, visiting Aunt Lynie's new house, and a little shopping @ Homegoods with mommy!
  •  He got his first "real" bath
  • Celebrated Daddy's Birthday
  • Survived his first photoshoot
  • Went to the doctor with mommy for my 4 week check up!
  • Celebrated his great-grandfathers 80th Birthday!
Little Man is eating about 3 to 4 ounces every 3 hours. He gives mommy a 5 hour stretch of sleep during the night. He is a wonderful baby especially when that belly is full! He is wearing a size 1 diaper and advanced to his 3 month size clothes at about 2 weeks old. He naps randomly throughout the day, but you can count on a good nap right when we exit the basement... he loves to ride! 
The first month has been filled with adventure, excitement, and moments of exhaustion. Thanks to lots of help from family and friends it has been an amazing experience. I have learned that it is best for this mommy to breastfeed as well as pump. Strict schedules only stress me out and he is a much better baby when I go with the flow! My sister says I do not act like this is my first child because I am so laid back, but it just works for us! 
I am so in love with this little boy, I never want to leave his side! 
Thank you for all of your continued prayers!

 All dressed up for his first outing! He wore his Sunday tie to Aunt Lynie's new house:)

Daddy had to go back to work and this is when he got home that evening... he couldn't wait to get his hands on his little buddy!

Little bear sleeping in his bassinet (his favorite!)

What I've been up to.... first week of life. 
(August 28- September 1, 2012)

 Mommy gave me my first bath...
He didn't like it too much because he was so cold. But he loves getting bundled up and mommy washing his hair.

I had my first doctors visit...
The day after coming home, we had to take Gage to the pediatrician to check his biliruben  because it had gotten a little high in the hospital... it was just fine! We also got our results from his ultrasound on his little hip. She felt a "click" in it but it was perfect! Thank you JESUS!
Here is little man enjoying his ride in the hospital, while mommy dreaded every bump we hit. I wouldn't miss it for the world though....

 Loved snuggling with daddy...
These two have my heart forever:)

Enjoyed being held by my many, many, many visitors...
Gage & Colson (his cousin)

Gage & Grandaddy

Gage & Aunt Erica
This is my very best friend who was also our nurse. I couldn't have done it without her.
We love you & can't wait to see you next week!
(Check her blog out here & show her some love;)

 Daddy gave me a bath...

Went for my first stroll around the neighborhood with mommy, Aunt Lynie, & MiMi... 
(Daddy assembled the stroller for us;)

 Enjoyed myself outside on the covered patio in my bouncer....

Relaxed in my swing...

 This cracks me up, he holds his own paci with his sweet little hands...

Watched some NASCAR racing...
Daddy was so proud;)

Slept like an angel in my comfy bassinet...
and let mommy get some much needed rest!

And of course, watched slept through my first BAMA game...

Our Little Bama Fan...

Mommy got a little carried away on a mini photo shoot today...
This was after and little man was worn out! 

We are doing great! 
We have mastered our little routine... 
I know I am his mommy, but he is a wonderful baby!
This has been the best week of my life... this mommy is so in love!

I have some fun post in mind... just bare with us! :)

Have a BLESSED Weekend & RoLL TiDE!!
