Henry can sit up by himself now! He's been doing it for about a week and a half and can hold himself upright a little longer each new day. Sometimes he gets fascinated by his feet and it looks like he is stretching his hamstrings. Usually, that ends up with Henry toppling over. When he is sitting straight up and looking out, he seems to really enjoy his new vantage point. It is so exciting to see him learning new things all the time!

Exersaucer fun

Henry got an exersaucer from my mom for Christmas. He is still figuring it out, but he loves it! And I dare say it will help me at dinnertime. When we first put him in it, he looked at us like, "I don't get it." It didn't take long, however, for him to start putting things in his mouth. Here, you see him enjoying the tastes of the cowboy toy from Aunt Kathy and Uncle Eric.
Then he discovered that one of the gadgets on the exersaucer was just the right height...
And now that's what he always goes for.
What a fun(ny) boy.

Baby's first Christmas

We had a great Christmas with Jim's family, who all came to our house for a few days. To say the least, Henry had fun being passed from person to person and not taking naps. =) He of course had no idea that there was any kind of "holiday" going on, but it was fun for Jim and me to open his presents! Here are some pics of Henry and friends:

So you know your phone is too loud...

...when you're in a store and you say, "Oh, I love this song!" and then you realize it is actually your phone ringing in your purse.

Dear Jo, I like you. Love, Henry

These pictures were way too sweet not to post.

Dinner with friends

I love Aunt Becky. She holds me even though I'm nearly as big as she is.I couldn't get the camera to work right, so this next picture turned out blurry. However, I think it totally captures the essence of Carson. Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. Running, running through the house. Always on the move...can't catch him. Nothing like a neked, running babe.

Dad thinks I look cool

Jim thinks it's neat to flip up Henry's collars all the time. The outfit he is wearing is from my best friend in Florida, Tricia, and it is labeled 12 months. Hmmm. Still with the drool...

If you were ever wondering what I looked like as a baby, this is pretty much it. However, as of late, I have noticed some of daddy's features making their way to the stage. Isn't it weird how much babies change from one month to the next? Henry looks totally different than when he was born. The only time I notice a resemblence is when he is screaming (not out of joy). That look/expression has stayed pretty much the same. Sometimes, when a baby is crying, do you ever laugh b/c it's so cute?

Suffice it to say, Henry will most likely not be afraid of big dogs. Maddie has deemed herself protector of our little tyke. An hour will go by and we'll realize we haven't seen Maddie for a while...where do we find her? Sleeping under Henry's crib while he's sleeping. Hopefully, Henry likes her back so she can get a little more exercise in about a year or so. =)

Jim and Henry travel the world

I took a pic of my boys in every country at Epcot. You can see that Henry was thrilled in most of the pics! I can't tell which of the countries are which b/c there is such a small frame of the actual pavillions. Oh well. You get the idea.

More from Orlando...

I thought everyone would enjoy this picture. This is what my mom looks like at work. Cute, eh? Ringlets and all! =) We went to Disney on Saturday with Jaci, Jeremiah and his girlfriend Christy and stopped at the American Adventure to see Grandma sing. As you can see, Henry was so excited, he drooled all over himself. Thanks to Carson for some short sleeved shirts! You might think Henry looks unhappy here, but he is actually overwhelmed. There is probaby 50 people all huddled around and staring and "aaww"ing at him. Here's Henry on Sunday, all ready for church. I wasn't feeling well (which makes sense now that Henry is in the middle of a yucky cold), so Grandma and Grandpa took him to church. Apparently, he was a big hit in the outfit Grandma got him from her favorite store...Gymboree! (You all thought I was going to say Nordstrom, right??)
My mother has this gift...take any screaming, unhappy baby and play pattycake and he will squeal with joy. No joke. It doesn't work as well when I do it! Needless to say, Henry loved playing with Grandma. If you are sitting here in the northwest, you might be wondering why Henry has no clothes on. It was 80 degrees in Orlando. Blech! Oh, and he kept spitting up on all his clothes.
One more pic for now...this is Jeremiah and Christy. Aren't they so cute? We all just loved getting to know Christy - she is such a sweet girl, not to mention fun! And beautiful I might add!

Happiest place on Earth

I have so much more to share in words and pictures but I have so much to unpack and put away! For now, I thought I'd leave you with this shot of Henry in his mouse ears from Grandma being held by a Dapper Dan on Main Street. I don't think I ever appreciated mouse ears fully until now. =)
