Week #11

A few pictures of Andrew hanging out on the boppy last Sunday. He is getting stronger and has a little more control of his head. Yes, he still enjoys sucking his fingers.

Week #10

On Sunday, we went to Ben Meier's 1st birthday party. Ben received lots of toys and some clothes. He was generously sharing his toys, especially with his older brother Bryant.

Andrew - 10 Weeks

Recently, we got out the activity mat that Aunt Mindi let us borrow. Andrew likes to hold up his arms and hit the toys so they move and make noise. He doesn't try to grab the toys yet, but it won't be long. He has started to grab Mom's hair when she is holding him.

Week #9

Week #9 was very exciting. We had Andrew's baptism on November 8th and Lori went back to work part time. Andrew also had his 2-month check-up. He was 11 lbs 3 oz (50th percentile) and 22" long (25th percentile). He is gowing so fast... He likes to kick his feet and move his arms. He has been sleeping through the night and that makes Mom & Dad very happy!

Andrew had a very special baptisimal gown that has been in the Bergman family for many years. The gown was worn by Tim's dad, Tim, and Andrew.

In addition to baptism, it was Tim's 29th birthday on November 8th. Notice the "Happy Birthday Tim" on the side of the cake.

We all sang to Tim and he blew out the special 29 candles!

I went back to work part-time this week. I worked two days, and they went very fast. I wasn't working too hard, mostly checking email and talking to my co-workers. Andrew spent his days at the sitter. On the first day, Andrew went through two outfits and came home in the sitter's clothes. All the other kids were excited to see Baby Andrew!

Week #8

We took a weekend trip to Hocking Hills. We spent the weekend relaxing and enjoying the fall weather. Tim grilled some steaks and pork chops.

8 Weeks Old

Andrew has become quite a mover & shaker. He likes to kick and move his hands. His kicking makes it hard to keep socks on his feet.

During the last few days, Andrew has started sucking his fingers more frequently. Yesterday, I gave him his pacifier. A few minutes later, I look over and he had spit out the pacifier and was sucking on his fingers.
