Happy Birthday Grandpa Aron

Happy Birthday Grandpa Aron!!!

(What can't this kid get into his mouth?!)

Reading a book with Daddy. They read "The Foot Book" twice...Tommy wants Thomas to understand what it is like to have boats as your feet!

Thomas really is already taking after his Dad...he was trying his darndest to grab the XBOX360 remote!

LeBlanc Family Visit

We had a great visit with Tommy's cousins Eugenie, John, Emily and Josey. They drove over from Missouri and we had a great time! Thomas enjoyed meeting his cousins and having new people to play with.

Josey the engineer, building a marble race course taller than she is!

Emily playing Mario Kart...she is a PRO...she beat Tommy SEVERAL times!

Meeting "Baby Thomas" for the first time!

Playing on the floor with Thomas.
Thank you all so much for coming for a visit, we had a great time and can't wait to go to Columbia, MO!

Our Little Digger

Thomas doing his best Digger Phelps impersonation!

Thomas "helping" Dad "work"!!!

Thomas weighed in at a hefty 17lbs 2oz this week, he is very close to doubling his birth weight. He started eating green beans this week and LOVES them! He is much more into the green goo than the rice cereal goo.

We are looking forward to our visit from the LeBlanc family and will post pictures sometime this weekend.

5 Months Old

Thomas was officially 5 months old on Saturday, and no he didn't just sprout all of this lovely red hair! Tommy had fun putting his wig on him! I worked the MAC Gymnastics Championship Meet on Saturday and Tommy watched Thomas. As you can see from the pictures they had a good time! Lots of bonding time too! I certainly missed them both (and Mable) but it was nice to do some athletic work.

Tommy, Thomas and Pete watched a lot of basketball this weekend too. As you can see Thomas is getting the low down from Dick Vitale.
Thomas is almost constantly rolling over now, both from his back to his tummy and tummy to back. He loves to look at his Mable!

Thomas and Dad playing!
Pete letting Thomas "walk" around the house. He loves to look at his blue chair!
Mable trying to get Dad's attention too.
Thomas laid with Tommy like this for about 45 minutes...super cute!
Thomas has so much hair now! Tommy likes to put it in a comb over! haha

Firsts...good ones and bad ones

Good: Thomas rolled over for the first time this week!!! This is a photo taken immediately after his second time rolling over. The first time he couldn't figure out how to get his arm out from under him but now he has that down! He probably rolled over 6 times today. Whenever we tried to put him on his tummy for "tummy time" he would loudly protest but now that HE is the one putting himself on his tummy he is pretty happy with it.

BAD: The little guy was "sick" for the first time. He has had some digestive issues...I will spare you the oh so gross (and green...fitting for St. Patty's day) details. Poor little man has been in a little pain during the process...but only when he is trying to go. The picture above I just happened to catch him in the act, poop face or as Aunt Megan calls it "cherry tomato"! We did call the doc's office and talked with a nurse who suggested switching to soy formula and me eliminating dairy. If he wasn't better in a week we would call the doc back. He seemed a good bit better today and didn't have quite as much discomfort or as many diaper changes...good sign.
This was taken this weekend after we got up Dad turned on Star Wars and they watched it in bed for awhile.

The weather here has been INCREDIBLE the last few days, highs in the upper 60's. Today we ventured outside to play with Mable for a little while.
Even though it has been warm it is still early spring in Indiana! Thomas wore the coat his Aunts got him earlier this week.

Visit to South Bend

Sorry for the delay in posting. Thomas had his first overnight trip to South Bend. He did a great job and it was awesome to get to see everyone (except for Steve and his crazy weekend work schedule) and of course eat a CJs burger.

Here are Parker and Riley hanging out with Thomas. They loved his caterpillar almost as much as he does. By the end of the trip even Griff and Ginger started to learn it's songs.

Ginger and Thomas have a little time to themselves before the girls decide that mommy should be playing with them and not someone else's baby.

Parker (seen in this picture) and Riley were so great with Thomas. Riley is the one taking the picture. Jess also had a good time hanging out and not worrying too much about school.

Griff is always against pictures. No matter what. I have known him for almost 10 years now and except for the wedding we have 15 pictures total where he is letting his face be seen.
But thanks to the rapid picture taking of Sallie's awesome camera. We have caught him.

Parker got a chocolate chip cookie after dinner and decided to rub it all over her face. So super cute. We can't wait for Thomas to get to this stage!
Riley loving the camera!
