Walk with Mommy/ Misc pictures

I am told that most babies LOVE to be outside, as in if they are having a crying fit, you can usually take them outside and they immediately stop, I guess it is supposed to be some type of therapy for babies? Well, this is not true with my son, he is very indifferent to being outside. He does not love it, but he does not hate it either, he is just kind of  "eh" to the whole outside thing. But he does like to look at the leaves on the trees, but really he just looks at me the whole time and eats his hands and makes funny faces when the sun hits his face. Silly baby, I just love him so much. But thank goodness he doesn't throw huge crying fits because the outside thing just doesn't work for him, but he is not like most babies, he is pretty smart and more advanced for his age if I do say so myself. Chance says that is mostly thanks to him, but I would like to think I had a part in his good nature and smarty pant ways too. So here are some pictures from our walk this morning, does he not look so cute all bundles up! He is exactly 14 weeks today!

Getting ready to head out!

Cutest baby ever? Pretty sure he is :)

He has the prettiest eyes

Love this time of year!

3 Months

Well I cannot believe that I now have a 3 month old baby! Is it just me or does being pregnant seem like it lasts for an eternity, and once your baby is here time flies by at lightning speed?  What is up with that?! So as this thing called time is going so speedy, I try and slow it down a little by spending as much snuggle/kissing/playing/acting crazy to get my baby to laugh hysterically at me time as possible. Chate is getting so big! He had his first little cold a couple weeks ago and he weighed in at 14 lbs 8 oz. Okay so here are some of his 3 month old accomplishments!

- He now rolls over from his stomach to his back, and almost from his back to his stomach, he tries but always gets his arm stuck.

- He has now found his thumb...I don't think this is an accomplishment, nor does Chance, but the stinker will not take a binky despite my everlasting tries of shoving the darn thing in his mouth, he just spits it out like it is the grossest tasting thing in the world. So for now, we call him thumb sucker :).

- He is a champ at nap times, and sleeps for several hours...but due to earlier stated cold, bed time has been a struggle lately he has been waking up 2 or more times a night, so I am praying that now he is getting over this cold things will go back to normal...I hope.

- Chate loves grabbing and holding onto things, especially moms hair, all of which go straight into his slobbery mouth.

- He loves his daddy and always has the biggest smiles for him when Chance gets home from work or school.

- He loves to stand ALL of the time, he would rather stand on my lap than sit.

- He has started giving me lots of "loves" lately, probably making up for keeping me up at night...but his little head resting on my shoulder sure does make up for those lost hours of sleep.

- He is a big "talker" and gets into these kicks where he will talk nonstop for about 10 or more minutes, and he will even try and have a conversation with us. Well it actually sounds like a bunch of caveman living in our house the way we talk to him, but oh well, its fun to hear his little voice. It is the cutest little voice ever!

Family Weekend

Friday was my 23rd birthday, no I am not feeling any older yet...but I am sure that time is going to come sooner than I want it too. We had a nice family day, just me and my boys. Chance did take me out to dinner that night to Texas Roadhouse, and it was nice because Chate slept the whole time, such a good boy! Later that night my in-laws came up from Ava to visit us for the weekend. Saturday we went to a huge corn maze. We had to find 8 questions and if we found them and got the answers all right we could enter our names in for a drawing. Well if any of you know my husband he was bound and determined to find every single one. This was no easy task, as the corn maze covered 16 acres! I lasted for about and hour, then Chate got hungry so Gwen and I made our way back out of the maze, without getting lost I might add, to feed Chate. Chance and his dad stayed to finish the questions. After about 40 minutes or so they were done and found and answered all the questions, so we were able to put our names in the drawing! It was such a nice day to be outside and enjoy the autumn air. I would venture to say that fall is my favorite time of year, I love the beautiful colors the trees turn, and the crisp autumn air. For lunch we went to Outback, yum! That night Gwen and I did a little shopping, as Chance and his dad went to a tool store...of course. Chate went with me, but he was a little fussy...I think he wanted to go with the boys instead of being stuck with the girls shopping. It was a great weekend and lots of fun. Now for some quite cuddling time with my baby, whom is getting quite big, so I try and get all the mommy and Chate time that I can. Snuggling that little boy is my favorite times of the day.
