The Second Month

Stats: 9 lbs, 21 1/2 inches long at Dr's visit

Likes: milk, having your Mom hold you frequently, sleeping on the couch with Mommy or Daddy, strolling when the weather is under 98 degrees, wearing your hair in a mohawk, playing in your bouncy seat, being swaddled, your nap nanny

Dislikes: naps, your bed, shopping with Mommy and Granny Deb, the hours from 6:00 pm to 1:00 am, tummy time

One of the biggest highlights of this past month was getting to travel to NC with James. I have to admit I was a little nervous about taking a small baby on such a long trip but he did great. I think the sound of the engines combined with my shoulder lulled him to sleep!

While we were in Greenville it was great to get to introduce James to a lot of friends and family who hadn't been able to meet him yet.

Several of my mom's friends hosted a "Sip and See" for people in town to drop by and meet James.Of course it had lots of yummy food and was great fun. Thanks Brenda, Judy, Marianne, Amy, and Sandra!

James got absolutely spoiled!

The Hollands and the Creech family had lots of relatives come to town to see us which was great as well. We also celebrated the October birthdays: my dad, Ryan, David, Whitney and of course JT's two month.

We had to make sure to attend the ECU football game, and the Pirates had an awesome victory over NC State. What a great first game for James to watch (or technically sleep through).

No visit to NC would be complete without eating at some of our favorite restaurants

James has also begun to give us little smiles which we absolutely love to see. We typically get to see them first thing in the morning.

This month we took JT to church for the first time. He was still too little to be in the nursery so we took him with us. At first he liked hearing the music but when the sermon started he decided he was done with this. Not only did he decide to squawk and let the church know he had arrived he also took that opportunity to have one nasty diaper. I let Ryan take him out for the rest of the service and deal with all that!
