Playing in the jumperoo!


Andrew continues to grow & develop. He usually has a constant stream of drool from his mouth and likes to place toys in his mouth. He is now able to reach the toys on the jumperoo & he has figured out how to bounce himself.

We visited Grandma & Grandpa Bergman on Sunday. We had cake & ice cream to celebrate Grandma's birthday. Grandma posed for a picture with her grandbabies!

The size gap between Andrew & Grant is closing!

4 Months

Wow, Andrew is 4-months old! Time flies... He had his check-up this week. He weighs 16lbs 4oz and is 25-1/2" long. We also had our first attempt at cereal this week. As you can see from the picture, he didn't like it. He was more interested in the spoon & bowl than the cereal.

Cold Winter's Morn

What a beautiful morning!

Playing With My Toys!

Andrew loves playing with his bumble bee that Santa brought him. It fits perfectly on the bumbo tray so Andrew can reach it.

Around 8 weeks, Andrew took interest in sucking his fingers. Usually, it is only when he is tired. At night, we often hear a sucking noise from the monitor.

He has also been playing in the jumperoo! He's still a little small; can't reach the floor or most of the toys. All that playing & he wore himself out!

He has really started to squeal and make himself heard.

4 Months

In the last few days, he has realized that he can also suck his thumb...

Earlier this week, the babysitter commented that the diapers are getting a little snug! We were in the middle of the last pack and I wanted to use them before we moved up to 3s. Friday evening, Andrew had spit-up several times and his outfit was soaked, so I decided that I better change him. Since I was only planning on a quick change of clothes, I decided to change him on the floor. He was wearing a one piece outfit that had snaps around the legs and a couple snaps near the neck. I had him sitting on the floor (propped-up against me). I broke open the snaps and started pulling the outfit over his head. After removing the outfit and tossing it into the hamper, I stop for a second thinking "I smell poopies, Andrew must need a diaper change." I look down at Andrew and found a big suprise. Poopies, Poopies Everywhere!!!
The small diapers finally caught up with me! Little boys can make big poopies and the diaper was not large enough to contain everything. The poopies had escaped out of the back of the diaper, so when I pulled the outfit over Andrews head it created a poopie trail from his diaper, up his back, and even on his head!!! I yelled for Daddy who helped clean-up the poopies so we could get Andrew directly into the bathtub for a good scrubbing! Fortunately, there were not any poopies on the floor, only a few on Mom's clothes. Lesson learned in parenting, "Don't attempt to finish the pack of diapers, the poopie mess is not worth it!"

Christmas 2009

This year was our first Christmas as a family! We had a nice relaxing day on Christmas Eve. Santa came early in the afternoon. Then, we watched some classic Christmas movies including Christmas Vacation and The Christmas Story. Santa brought Andrew some books, puzzles, a suction toy, and clothes.

Dad telling Andrew, "Santa gave you a free pass this year, but he'll be watching to make sure your a good boy for next Christmas."

On Christmas day, we went to Grandma & Grandpa Bergman's house. The grandkids all received Ohio State jerseys.

As suggested by Grandma Bergman, we had a hat theme this year. Everyone was supposed to wear a hat with earflaps. As usual, there were a few people who bent the rules.

On Saturday, we went to Grandma & Grandpa Meier's house. After lunch, we opened presents. Unfortunately, I didn't capture a lot of pictures.

Uncle Ryan, Grace, & Andrew. I think Grace is ready to be a big sister, only 3 months!
