His feet touched the ground for the first time today. I'm not sure he was so impressed-- he seems to prefer to fly... Posted by Picasa

The people at Wal-Mart's Portrait studio are big poopy heads! We showed up for Louis' picture appointment and waited a half an hour and the photographer never showed up! Louis looked so cute and smiley it was a CRIME not to take his picture!This is Louis wearing his back-up outfit. He's about to outgrow his picture outfit so we had better reschedule somewhere else pronto! Oh yeah, the whole poop issue has worked itself out..... Posted by Picasa

Hard to believe anyone could be this happy when they haven't pooped in almost 4 days! Doesn't seem to bother Senor Louis-in fact, while he was scrunching his body up while trying to, um, you know...go, he found his feet!Big day people! We'll keep you posted on the whole poop situation... Posted by Picasa

Yes, it was time for Louis' 4 month doctor visit and that means-SHOTS! 5 to be exact! Lucky for Louis, he's got big ol' hamhock legs for the shots to go! Poor thing looks like a pin cushion though. One good thing-Mommy didn't cry this time! Louis weighed 13.5 lbs and was 23.25 inches long. He is catching up to full term babies as he is now in the 25th percentile for weight/height for a 4 month old. If you go by his corrected age of 2 months, he's in the 95th percentile!! The doc says he looks great! I think we'll keep him.... Posted by Picasa

Louis is a happy camper today! And so is mommy because Louis slept for 6 hours straight for 2 nights in a row! I woke up fearing the worst-thieves had stolen the baby while I slept (because there is NO WAY this baby could have slept this long!) But no, the baby was just starting to stir and my dread gave way to a peculiar feeling- a feeling I haven't felt in awhile. I realized it's called feeling "well-rested"...... Posted by Picasa

Louis is looking at the lights as we fly into Charlottesville Airport. Louis did great on his first airplane trip. The look of terror in the eyes of our fellow passengers soon turned to delight when Louis would smile and coo at them (instead of screaming like they thought he would!) It's good to be home though... You don't realize how much you rely on bouncy chairs and swings to keep your baby happy until you don't have them anymore! Posted by Picasa

This is Louis "enjoying" some tummy time. I think he is trying to say, "Mom, put down the @#$% camera and feed me already!"
Eating is always on Louis' mind-he's up to 12 lbs now! He is very good at conning Dad into giving him a bottle on the days mom works-sucker! Posted by Picasa
