I'm two months old!

Silas turned two months old yesterday. He is getting so big and, if it was even possible, getting so much cuter every day! He's had a lot of "firsts" recently. He's started smiling, cooing, grasping things in his hands, showing interest in new things (like lights....he LOVES the Christmas tree lights) and TV....uh oh! :) He is gaining more head control and we can even sit him on the couch surrounded by pillows and he doesn't slump over! SEE??!?!?!

We are having so much fun with him too! He's a very happy baby, unless he hasn't slept and we are dealing with some sleep issues lately as well. We can get him to sleep fine, but he won't seem to STAY asleep. He sleeps pretty good at night, but unless we are out and about and he falls asleep in the car seat, he really resists sleeping for any amount of time during the day. We hope it's just a phase!

We are getting so excited for Christmas too! In just a couple of weeks we'll get to be with my whole family....all sisters, their husbands and kiddos. We haven't all been together in a couple of years, so I am SOOOOO excited! Silas can't wait to meet the rest of his cousins either!!

If i don't post again beforehand, i hope you all have a very merry and blessed Christmas and a happy New Year!

Gobble Gobble

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Silas enjoyed his first one! His uncle Tony and Aunt Jessica, along with cousin Gage came to visit the first part of the week. It was fun for them to meet Silas...especially for the boys to meet and we had a great visit with them. We went to the aquarium one day and Gage just loved it! Silas just hung out mostly in the stroller and only got out a couple of times (mommy is scared of all of the germs that are there :)).

Then Nana and Pops came to visit on Thanksgiving day and stayed for the weekend. They haven't seen him since he first came home from the hospital so they were shocked at how much he had changed in only a month and a half. It was a great visit, and mommy and daddy got a break b/c nana and pops wanted to hold him the entire time.

Here are a few pics from the week.

Gage immediately took to Silas and was ready to play! Too bad Silas is just a little too young....but in time!

Gage loved the aquarium!

We got in the Christmas spirit early with the boys.....how cute are they in thier matching Santa outfits?

Gage liked taking care of his baby cousin....who was NOT happy at this point in the photo shoot!

Nana & Pops holding Silas..

And yes, again....since it was a Saturday, we had to watch our Razorbacks! This week, though, he can hold pom pons (this will only go on while he's a baby.....soon, he'll be holding a football! :))!

whew! by the time the week was over, he was just plain pooped! Notice the hands in this pic.....do they really start this early?

Now it's really time to get in the Christmas spirit! What a precious face!
