Happy 15 Weeks


We survived 15 weeks together! What an accomplisment. It has been - and continues to be - a learning experience for all of us. It's a lot of fun to watch you grow and change every day.

What's new? Well, I am guessing that you weigh about 14 pounds now so you are almost double your birth weight. Your dad thinks that you'll be really tall which means that you'll get your tallness factor from him, not your vertically-challenged mother. And the bobble-head that you had several weeks ago has officially given way to a steady neck and sturdy back. Your (precious!!) giggles are contagious and often cause your father (and me) to do ridicilous things in public. We've always done ridicilous things in private ... but now we are proudly displaying them to the outside world. There is no shame if our goofy antics lead to the anticipated laugh or at least a big grin. When they don't lead to a laugh, well, then we just look stupid. But we're OK with that for now.

An important "first" took place about a week ago. We went together to Hilton Head Island and you put your feet in the sand for the first time. You seemed to enjoy the ocean a lot, which is nothing short of AWESOME.

One thing that I will NOT let you forget is that you refused to take the bottle AT ALL while we were on vacation. I was looking forward to a break from breastfeeding but ohhh nooo, that wasn't in the cards for me. You probably enjoyed a little margarita during your feedings. Maybe that's why you slept so well.

And, last but not least, we were playing with you on your activity mat last night and your dad was trying to help you learn to roll over on your own. Echo was excited because she understood what we were talking about and seemed to smile every time we said "roll over". Unfortunately you didn't quite comprehend our request, but I'm sure you'll get there soon enough. Maybe Echo will work with you on it tonight.

We love you Connor!
