Michael is 2 months old!

Michael had 4 shots at his 2 month doctor appointment and weighed 11 pounds, 4 ounces. He was very brave when he got his shots and we learned that his lung capacity is much greater than what we hear on a daily basis. He's smiling, says "ah goo", talks to himslef in the mirror, and is starting to laugh.

Many of you will be happy to know Jr had perfect aim in his bath tonight....

causing Sr to also need a bath!

Sample some talking:

6 weeks and baptism

He's smiling and cooing at 6 weeks. Every day there's something new!

Michael was baptized on Sunday, November 9. We had a great weekend with Uncle Dierk and cousins Katie, Bily, and Alex. Godparents Dierk and Patricia did a great job on Sunday. Michael slept through the ceremony until he had water poured on him and was lifted like Simba in a Circle of Life moment by Father Tully. He even gave a little yelp at the last Amen!

1st bath and week 3

Michael had his first bath on 10/17! He loved it. Well, he didn't cry, so we think he liked it.
We're taking lots of walks and enjoying the beautiful fall weather.
Michael watched the Phillies win game 5 against the Dodgers and is looking forward to rooting on his future employer in the World Series!

Stock in tests

After suspecting that I might be pregnant in January, I purchased a test at my local drugstore. This is a much different experience when you hoping to see 2 lines instead of one. Granted this was a week before I should actually have taken the test I was certain it would be positive. It was negative - GASP. These test looks for a hormone called hCG. So, not losing all hope I took a test the next day, which was still early, but I figured what's another $20 to know I shouldn't have a glass of wine and forever blame myself for my kid's SAT score.
The second line appeared and the adventure of pregnancy officially had begun - for me. Mike didn't really believe it until we were sitting at the OB's office and she confirmed, "Yes, those drug store tests actually are accurate."
This photo is at 10 weeks when I insisted I had a baby bump. In reality I had started eating like I was on a cruise ship and that "bump" is called junk food.
