Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! Matt's mom and Gram came down to spend the holiday with us. We all had a great time. Joann brought everything with her that we needed for a delicious Thanksgiving feast. Daniel loved meeting his Gram for the first time and seeing his Grandma Joann again!

One Month Doctor Visit

Daniel and I went for his one month check up today. Everything is looking great! When he was born, he was 8 pounds, 2 ounces and 19 1/2 inches long. He's now 10 pounds, 3 ounces and 23 1/2 inches long. All those hiccups he has is making him grow pretty quickly!

One Month Photos

On Monday, Daniel went to Photo Innovations for his one month pictures. There was a deal going on- something like 10 sheets of 1 pose for $9.95. You go in expecting to get that deal--- which I did--- but I didn't count on wanting every single picture that they took! So I ended up buying enough so that I got the CD with all of his pictures on it- they are all adorable. He did great for the first half of the session, but then he started getting a little irritated. Having your picture taken is exhausting (and hungry) work! Here are some of the pictures from that session. (I think the angel ones are just too adorable!)

Walk the Lights at Night

On D's one month birthday, we all went to Calloway Gardens to "Walk the Lights at Night". Calloway Gardens always has up a huge light display for the holiday that you normally ride a tram or your car through to see everything. One night a year, they close it to automobile traffic and you get to walk through it--- about 5 - 7 miles. The money raised goes to support the March of Dimes. This is my 2nd year doing it--- it's so much fun to listen to the Christmas music and see all the festive lights. Matt and Daniel went this year, as well as my mom, Shanna, and her family. We had a great time. They were predicting cold weather, so we bundled Daniel up (see the cute picture!), but it was really pleasant outside. If you get a chance to do something like this, you should- the walk goes by really fast and it's a great start to the holiday season.

Big Boy Outfit

Here is a picture of Daniel in an outfit that makes him look like quite the little man. He got his picture taken with his cousins on Sunday. Carter was wearing an outfit similar to this one (including the hat!), and Thomas and Bailey were also wearing red and black. Daniel and Carter weren't entirely happy about getting their picture taken, but I'm sure there are some adorable shots!

Two Kinds of Pilots

The first two pictures show D with our doggie Pilot- who had absolutely no reaction when I placed Daniel next to him on the bed. Pilot was on his best behavior with Daniel- they look too cute together! The white and blue t-shirt is one of the few pieces of clothing I personally bought for D before he was born. I think Daniel is already preparing to follow in his daddy's footsteps.

Pictures from the last week

Here are some pictures from the last week. D is showing off his new bellybutton in the picture that has his onesie pulled up. Sorry there are so many of the same--- I just couldn't choose my favorite!

More Family!

Daniel was quite the attraction this weekend! His Uncle Jason and Aunt Nat also came down to check out their newest nephew. These pictures (check out the smile on D with Nat- too adorable!) were taken Sunday night at a dinner at my parents' house. During that dinner, Daniel also got to know Carter (my 11 month old nephew) better--- Carter was very interested in D's scab. He would reach out with his hand towards D's nose... funny how C knew that something was a little different!

Handsome Boy

Last night, D's scab under his nose came off! He's had the sore since birth, so this was our first time seeing Daniel without it. He looks like such a little man!

Happy Halloween!

Daniel enjoyed his first Halloween. He dressed up as a cute little ghost. It was a special day because he got to meet his Aunt Fran for the first time and see his Grandma Joann again for the weekend.
