Trip to Texas

Tuesday, August 31, 2010
I'm very late in posting this but about a month ago, we took Cash on his first flight all the way to Texas to visit Ross's family in Houston. Cash was great on the flights (we had a layover in Dallas) and slept for most of the entire time. It didn't hurt that we were flying first class thanks to Grampa Harold's air miles. We spent 4 days visiting with family and letting everyone get to know Cash and get in some quality holding time. Mama Nellie came down with Great Uncle Mario from Marshall, TX and Cash also go to meet his Great Aunt Melinda, Great Uncle Alan and cousins Matt, Suzanne, and their adorable daughter Addison. On the last night, Grampa Harold, Mama Mollie, Aunt Fiona and Uncle Charlie were really nice and let Ross and I go out on a date to the Alamo Drafthouse - our first date night since Cash came home! It was nice being somewhere where we actually had some help with the baby and to have all the space to move around in a real house over a small apartment. It was definitely an adjustment having to walk to all the separate rooms where I had put baby stuff. I'm not used to so much space and Cash seemed a bit in awe of his surroundings. We can't wait until we all have a chance to go back and visit everyone again.

*I'm an idiot and erased all of my pics from the Texas trip on our flight back - I'm not very photographically inclined. However this picture sent by Aunt Melinda sums up what the trip was all about:

Bumbo!

Tuesday, August 24, 2010


I tried sitting Cash in the Bumbo chair today. He's great at holding up his head so I thought it was time to pull it out. He's still a bit floppy but he didn't fuss in it so I call that a success!

Home again...


Ross and I had to leave the little one for a couple of days to attend my best friend Candace's wedding in Colorado. He was in great hands with his Grammy and Papa and the wedding was a lot of fun but we were so excited to be home with him again. Just having him take turns sleeping on our chests turned into the best night ever.

Visit from Cash's Hershey Aunties

Monday, August 23, 2010


A couple of weeks ago my good friends from home, Jami and Jessica, decided to come up from Philadelphia for the day and meet Cash. We had a great day together and Cash was very taken with both of them and showed them a bunch of his smiles. We can't wait to see them again on Labor Day weekend in Hershey!

Photoshoot

Wednesday, August 18, 2010
About a month ago, our friend Jessica came over with her camera and some mad photography skills and took some professional looking shots of Cash that we used for our birth announcement. We plan to get some of these framed for ourselves and family to put on the wall but here is a small sampling. Thanks again Jessica!

Favorite show

Thursday, August 12, 2010
I think Cash's favorite show is So You Think You Can Dance...he likes to dance along. video

Happy 2 months Cash!

Our little boy is already two months old and it's crazy how time flies. We had his 2 month pediatrician appointment a little early at 6 weeks due to our trip to Texas (which I will do a whole post on shortly) and he is doing wonderfully. He weighs 10 lbs, 5 oz and is 22 1/2 inches long. He is great at holding up his head and his doctor said that he looks like a really happy baby. He had to get his shots that day and he took it like a champ. He was fussy later in the afternoon but nothing too horrible.

It's so exciting to see how much he changes and grows every day. He smiles and coos all of the time now and is starting to look intently at us, his hands and fingers, and the world around him. He's also the squirmiest baby I've ever seen. It just seems like he constantly wants to move. I think the next month will bring a bunch of other big changes and I can't wait to see them all.
