Hey, pretty busy guy here. I’m taking my first trip tomorrow and you know how stressful packing is. Trying to keep it cool.
Luckily Mommy has it all under control (she says). The good thing is that we’re going to Hingham to see Grammy and Pops and aren’t they supposed to spoil me rotten? I’m ready for it. Maybe I’ll even add to my wardrobe collection.
I’m excited because I’m getting my first taste of Mommy’s favorite Brigham’s ice cream, through my own direct line of course.
I’ll have to remember to give Grammy the heads-up on Pinterest so she can drive herself crazy next year making me a banana-raisin-grape caterpillar or something.
Stay tuned for my travel adventures. I’m sure the 4+ hour car ride will be lots of fun for all (wink wink). Just wondering if I should wear this outfit for the ride. Seems appropriate, but then that’s just one more stressful traveling decision…see what I mean?
I’m looking pretty sharp these days with all my new duds. You see, Mommy had these clothes all along but because I was so small, I couldn’t fit into any of them, only white t-shirts. I was like, “Oh man, when am I going to get to wear any of my gifts?”
When I saw this album cover on Grammy’s iPhone, I said, “oh no, that’s me!”
I didn’t understand why I was mostly wearing my Plain White Ts and so I started eating and eating and eating to see if that would change anything. And guess what? It worked! Now that I’ve gained weight and gotten bigger, I get to wear all my cool stuff and there’s no stopping me now!
Wonder if I’ll get voted Best Dressed or Best Looking?
Lemme think. I weighed 5 pounds, 3 ounces the day I was born. Tuesday, on my five-week-old birthday, I weighed 7 pounds, 5 ounces. That’s a 2.2 pound gain which averages out to 6.8 ounces per week, which, by my calculation means I am becoming a big little boy!
Did you ever seen that movie Honey I Shrunk the Kids? It’s the one where everything is gigantic cause the kids are so little. That’s how I felt yesterday when Mommy stuck me under this big contraption which I guess is supposed to be fun (probably educational too, yuck).
I mean, what is this thing anyway?
I can’t wait to watch movies with Mommy like Pinocchio and Mary Poppins. Not watching any with Daddy tho, no way! I’m just a little guy but even I know that scary movies (like The Birds and Arachnophobia for example) are all about Daddy’s favorite things.
I’m not a boring guy. Oh, you may think I’m just some dull baby who sleeps all day long (not night tho, no siree) but nope, there are a few different sides of me.
There’s my hipster Brooklyn side…
And then there’s my preppy Nantucket side…
Which side do you like?
You might be wondering why I’m sporting frogs today. Well, guess what?! My daddy just started a new business so I’m really excited and joining in the spirit. I’m not one for all that social media stuff (meanie mommy won’t even let me have an iPad) so I’m not
putting this anywhere else, just here! So if you want to see a great new website, go to muchmoredesign.com, and support a great
cause (ahem, me). Pass the word please and maybe I’ll get some more new outfits!! Woohoo and Ribbit!
Hi there! Since I’m coming up on five weeks, I thought it might be a good idea to check Mommy’s baby books to see how I am coming along, you know, my progress and all, at the five week mark. So here we go…
1. This week, your baby’s movements are becoming smoother and more purposeful. √ Check, yep that’s me!
2. Neck muscles are getting stronger, which allows him to hold his head up for short periods. √ Check, yep that’s me!
3. Baby’s first real smiles (note to self: remember big smile when I want some more milk or a new rattle). √ Check, yep that’s me!
4. Your baby will start sleeping longer at night (maybe four to six hours).
√ No Check, uh oh, I might need to work on this one!
Pretty good report card but is there room for improvement?
√ Check, I think so!
I’m gearing up for the fall because Pops and Grammy are big football fans. I mean big! We have a few family rivalries so I’m still deciding which side I’m on. In the meantime, Go-o-o-o team!
Hit ’em again, hit ’em again, harder..
My Daddy’s college didn’t have a team and my Mommy doesn’t care about football so that makes it a little easier on me since I don’t have to worry about two more teams.
Go Gators and Go Pats! shhhh!
Yay, I’m four weeks old today! Boy, did that go by fast (for
me anyway, Mommy and Daddy are so tired they probably
think it’s been at least a year or something). Anyway, I wanted
you to know that, yes, Mommy is still big on stripes but they’re
green now and much wider so it’s all good. Happy Birthday to Me!
