Rolls anyone?

Dane looks so cute sitting in his bath tub. These are the kind of pictures that I can use later on to black mail my son when he has a girlfriend! :) Check out his rolls that he has gotten on his legs! So cute!

CHUNKY MONKEY

So my little man isn't so little anymore. I hope that everyone is sitting down for what I am about to tell you. I nearly fell over when I heard the news. Yesterday I took Dane to his doctor for a cold that he had caught. And to my surprise he now weighs 1 ounce away from being 12lbs!!!! Granted he had just eaten a 4 ounce bottle minutes before the weigh in, but the scale hit 11.15! I was totally shocked that he had gained that much weight since his 2 week checkup. The doctor said that he is normal, but may be a BIG eater while he is a baby. He has grown a couple inches as well. He is 22.25 inches long.

There's a new Sherrif in Town

Dane and I went to Orange for the first time for a very short trip to visit family. We had a couple mishaps in the beginning. David was feeding Dane and I guess it didn't settle well with his tummy. Dane threw up all over David, which by the way was pretty funny, just because it was David. :) My mom had to wash a load of laundry on the spot for Dane's jeans and blanket. Not too long after that I was changing Dane in the back bedroom and mishap #2 occurred. I wasn't quite fast enough with the diaper and Dane had an accident all over the comforter. So needless to say my mom had extra laundry to do while we were there. After all that was over the day calmed down. We went over to Pappy and Nannaw's house so everyone could take turns holding Dane. We even got Patrick to hold him! Way to Go Patrick! It is always great to see my family. We had a really good time. Dane did really well considering how long he had to ride in the car and do without his usual long naps.

Dane wore his sherrif shirt just for David!



After mishap #1...





Yeah Patrick!!!


Notice any similarities? :)

Dane would not take his eyes off the ceiling fan

Be Careful David...we dont want mishap #1 to occur again

Easter Sunday

The Easter Bunny dropped off some presents for sweet baby Dane. In his basket were some wrist and feet rattles, a rabbit rattle and a book about Peter Rabbit and few other things. He was also nice enough to leave Kevin and I each a chocolate easter bunny. How nice of him to think of us as well. I must say that Dane was so cute in his church attire. I think he was the best-dressed in the nursery...not that I'm biased or anything.

After Church we went over to Grandma & Grandpa Wittschen's house to have lunch. This was Dane's first trip to Friendswood and first time meeting a dog. Taffy was very curious about Dane. He would go over to Dane and sniff him all over, but Taffy didn't seem to mind that a baby was taking over his home. He never barked or anything at Dane. Once Dane gets a little older I think he will have so much fun with Taffy. Jackie made a quilt for Dane and I think that Taffy thought it was for her because he just sat down on the quilt right in the middle. It was hilarious!

Stylish Baby

This shirt that Dane is wearing has got to be the cutest shirt ever. My new favorite baby store is Baby Gap (Christy...you will be so proud!!) because they have trendy clothes for babies and its not the typical things you see everywhere. It kind of reminds me of a shirt that Kevin wore while we were in Hawaii. Kevin is out of town today so Dane and I are having a mother/son bonding day, which always includes lots of pictures!




Easter Bunny

I took Dane to see the Easter Bunny today. Dane didn't seem to notice that a big furry thing was holding him. As long as he is being held he could care less. At first they took a picture with the bunny's paw covering half of his face so we had to re-do it. The next shot Dane decided to open his mouth real wide right at the moment the shot was taken. Too funny! His first experience with the Easter Bunny went quite well. I think I enjoyed it more than he did!

My Bunny and Me

Granny and Poppy bought Dane the cutest easter rabbit. It sings Jesus Loves me. Dane seemed to like it alot...he would look at it and babble to him. Of course, I had to stage a few pictures. Dane was a good sport until the end, and then he had had enough. He better get used to it because he has a mom who loves to take pictures! :) I'm going to take him to see the Easter Bunny tommorow. I should have already done it because I'm sure the mall is going to be packed and the lines really long. But a mom has to do what a mom has to do! :)

Just chill'n with my bunny
Ahh sweet bunny
Ok Lets have a chat
Ok ENOUGH with the pictures and bunny...I'm getting mad!!!!

Prettiest Yard in the Neighborhood

My mom came into town to help with some landscaping in our front yard. Let me rephrase that...she did our entire front yard by herself with little participation from me besides being her chauffer to all the garden centers. Kevin helped alot with the tilling, spreading the dirt and anything else my mom needed. Our yard looks amazing! Wow...what a difference it makes to a house when the yard looks beautiful. I can't wait for the bushes to grow and the flowers to bloom. Thanks MOM! We really appreciate all that you did! Here are some before and after pictures of the house. These pictures do not do it justice because it really looks great! I wish I would have taken some before/after my mom because she was worn out afterwards! :)

This is what Dane did while everyone worked in the yard...

Lounged in his swing and took a few cat naps!
And lounged in his papasan chair and once again snoozed!
