Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day...yeah, I know it's late but really I have a almost 5 month old baby, I can't always be on time. Stephen and I had a Valentine's Day weekend instead of just a day, because really, one day? Nah, we go big, the whole weekend.

Ok, sorry I got distracted. So some hi-lights of the weekend are Tai Ruby (the best Tai food EVER!), going to see Tron, my flowers and making dinner with Stephen. We're pretty poor students so I don't get flowers too often but Stephen goes all out for Valentine's Day. I love my husband! We also made dinner together, which is not something that we get to do often. It was SO much fun to crowd in our small kitchen and cook together, it reminds me of when we were dating and we would look up recipes and make them together.

My boys on Valentine's Day. Notice Will's shirt. Yes, I'm training him early to be a great husband :)

My BEAUTIFUL flowers!

Our delicious dinner! Fillet Mignon with balsamic sauce, mushroom risotto, and garlic asparagus, mmmm, yummy!

4 Months

Yesterday Will had his 4 month check up. Here are his stats:

Weight: 15 lb 5 oz - 56th percentile
Height: 26 in - 80th percentile
Head: 17 in - 70th percentile

He is such an amazing baby! Here are a few things he loves (and I love about him) right now:
  • smiling and laughing a lot
  • playing with his toys, especially the light up ones
  • eating rice cereal
  • trying new uber pureed baby food
  • trying to feed himself by grabbing the spoon right before it goes into his mouth and SHOVING it into his mouth
  • scooting around in a circle, trying to figure out how to go straight.
  • his mobile, he could watch that for hours, sometimes I even find him talking to it when I come and get him in the morning :)
  • his thumb, yup, he found it and he loves it
  • putting things in his mouth, anything he can reach, he puts them in his mouth
  • meeting new people, especially girls, oh boy
  • talking to mom and dad
  • sleeping in his new crib, in his new room
  • sitting in his bumbo and watching mommy cook
  • trying to sit up by himself
  • looking in the mirror at a handsome baby boy
  • swinging at the park
  • sitting in a high chair with the grownups
  • sitting in the cart by himself
  • going on walks through the mall with mom and dad because it's too cold to walk outside
Jut to name a few. This kid has both Stephen and I wrapped around his perfect little fingers, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Moving in a Circle, I'm afraid of what will happen when he figures out how to go forward.
