Experienced Babysitter for Hire!

This is how I found Chris and Shayden yesterday when I came in to check and see how things were going. Now before you call CPS Chris would like to defend himself by saying this couch is very sturdy and he was firmly planted on two feet!!! Oh my goodness, I think after seeing this picture you may want to hire him to watch your child...huh, no takers.
Just teasing you babe, your a great dad and Shayden was really enjoying the view from up there.

Perplexed ...

I walked into our kitchen today to find this display in our "pantry" (if you saw it you would understand the need for the "). Now I asked myself, since we all know who did it (can't blame it on Shayden just yet Chris), what would drive a man to think he is sealing up said bag of cookies when you can clearly see the cookies through the large hole you just created by opening them and diving right in?

I stand perplexed...

Photo Tag:

To keep this tag going - in honor of my sis Kristen - I present to you my 6th album (on this computer mind you) and the 6th picture in that album...

You have got to be kidding me - I think she rigged this thing...well sis here is your time to shine!
This pic was taken during a visit Chris and I made from OH to AZ back in Sept. '06.

5 Week Update

Shayden has reached the 10 lb mark! At our 5 week check up this past week he weighed in at 10 lbs 1 oz and measured in at 22 3/4 inches long. This length placed him in the 95% for growth - which came as a surprise if you know the height of my husband...Chris told him to enjoy it while it lasts as he probably only has another 30" to go...which makes me wonder - what is Chris going to do when Shayden passes him by?

This week's highlight in our new world with Shayden was giving Uncle Scott a diaper changing lesson. For any of you who know Uncle Scott (or Uncle Poosie for those who really know him) you are sure to know how excited and thoroughly invested he is in becoming the best uncle ever! As you will witness above in the pictures he not only completed his first lesson but the results were a very happy Shayden...job well done Uncle Scott - you may be up for uncle of the year.

Daddy Time

Took a few snapshots of Chris and Shayden last night having Daddy Time...had to post them once I saw how cute they turned out. He is getting so big and holding his head up like a champ. To child experts out there - does this count for tummy time?

I might, and I mean might (no proof here people), have put some food down the disposal that has led to a clog which we cannot fix. Um, who really needs a kitchen sink right? To top this off our landlords are in Florida and the plumbing company they have specified for us to use can't come until Monday - 3 days with no sink...are you kidding me???
For all of you who know us well don't let Chris tell you he has been inconvenienced by this mistake, he has already been out to get his breakfast using the "sink" as his reasoning...living large people, living large.

Bath Time

We love bath time here...and thankfully so does Shayden. This is one of my favorite recent shots when he is fresh out of the tub. We will save the naked ones for his baby book and the future woman of his dreams (have to have it, black mail is necessary and I fully believe in its benefits).

Pure Torture
I am currently sitting at the computer while Chris and I choose to torture ourselves with Shayden's crying. Yes, we are attempting to let him self soothe and go down for his nap smoothly without being rocked until he is totally out. It is AWFUL! We have gone 10 minutes and just went in to calm him - which he does right away - and now is back to crying his little eyes out not understanding how we would not just want to hold him 24/7.
We are sorry little buddy - some day you may thank us but probably not.

Big Adventure Day!

Shayden took his first little road trip today to go and see Great Grandma and Grandpa! He was a total champ on the drive there and back and even had his first ride on Great Grandpa's tractor. Needless to say none of this was possible without Grandma! We had a great time and can't wait until they return from Florida after the winter...I think they have the right idea.
