Tiny love

Last friday we took Thomson to see Dr. Henry for his 4-month checkup (two weeks early). Everything is going great, he is still in the same percentiles of weight and height, and his little head has grown 3/8". During the visit, Henry said that soon we can start him on solid foods, as soon as he can hold his head up in a Bumbo chair and seems interested in eating. We're going to wait awhile - at least until after Thomson's "fit into the Christening gown diet" is over. But this morning, after Dad left for work, Thomson and I decided to try out the Bumbo chair for the first time...and it was the most fun that he has had in all of his 3+ months - he was thrilled to be sitting on his own, looking around his room from a whole new angle!

So for those of you looking for a gift for a baby or a pregnant lady, Thomson is loving anything that rotates. He loves to lay on our bed and watch the slow ceiling fan. He will sit in his swing, turned off, and when I walk over to him he looks up at the mobile, as if telling me "Mom, make it move with your magic!" He is amazed. But my favorite toy for him right now is this portable mobile by Tiny Love. You can find it here . I hang it on his activity mat, on his stroller for walks, and on his car seat. He loves it!

3 Months...

This is a long post - there are too many cute pictures to choose from! Yesterday was your first snow! We had fun this morning on the Ranger, driving through Five Points - you were under my jacket! (Actually I need to clarify that it's dad's red jacket, and it's very warm but not too attractive :) Yay snow!

Okay, and here are more random pictures from a few of our daily photo sessions. Is that an elephant on your sweater?
Bates makes the perfect foot rest!
I love when Daddy gets home from work! Mom almost caught her favorite smile!

I love my swing!!!
Daddy, do I look cross-eyed?Taking pictures is exhausting - time for a nap!
