Two Month Check-Up

D went for his 2 month check-up today. He is now 24 inches long and weighs 14.1 pounds. Dr. Magill says he is looking great! He was very brave for the 2 shots he received- one in each thigh- and is now sporting a pair of handsome band-aids. His next appointment will be in 2 months.

Too funny...

You have got to "Elf Yourself!" I had so much fun, and I couldn't resist sharing these dances. My personal favorite is the Disco Dance. Who knew Matt was such a great dancer? (I did!)

It's Time for a Hoe Down!

Cousin Carter Turns the Big One!

We all went over to Josh and Kristy's house for Carter's birthday on December 10. Carter was too cute... he wanted to be held by whoever was holding Daniel (at the same time!) Luckily, all the laps were happy to hold 2 Skelleys. Carter was treated to his own birthday treat- 3 cupcakes made to look like a snowman. He pulled the plate close to him, leaned down to the plate, and started eating (without picking up the cupcakes!) He put on quite the show! The pictures tell it all...


D had his first visit with Santa the other day at the Mall of Georgia. That Santa was amazing- very nice and extremely photogenic. I think I heard Daniel coo to Santa what he wanted--- at least three ceiling fans in every room. He's obsessed with fans right now. When I'm getting ready in the morning, I'll lay him on our bed, turn on the fan for a few seconds to get it going and then turn it off. D stares at the fan as it slows down and smiles away... after a few minutes, I repeat the process. That keeps him happy for as long as I need to get ready. Whatever works!

The Hat Makes the Outfit

Whenever I see an absolutely adorable boy outfit, I have a difficult time not getting it for Daniel. This is his winter wear- he also has a snowman onesie that matches the pants. I could not resist getting the hat as well. Not only does it keep him warm on cold nights, but I think it really does make the outfit.

It's Swing Time!

Daniel enjoys his swing, though it often puts him to sleep. The harness on the swing (and on D's carseat) make his cheeks look like chipmunk cheeks. They're really not that poofy!

Check Out My Belly!

Daniel is getting so big... he has such a cute belly! He's starting to grow from a little newborn into a big boy! It's a little bittersweet that he's already grown out of his newborn clothes. The time is passing by too fast!

The Many Expressions of Daniel

I just love Daniel's expressions. He's always had "sleep grins" where he smiles in his sleep, but in the past few weeks, he's really started to smile at people while awake. His favorite spot is his changing table where he will just look at you and smile away. I must say that he's a pretty happy baby! Matt and I are very lucky to have such a wonderful son.
