Dinner date with Lexie

Wednesday, September 29, 2010
Last Saturday our friend Courtney came over for dinner with her month old baby girl Lexington. Cash met Lexie a few weeks ago over at her place - he was very dashing and showed up to the door with a red rose, Bachelor-style. For this "playdate", Cash let Lexie share his swing while he played on the floor. We figure it will be a few more months before they start to interact and true love takes hold.

Fashion Show

I remember when we found out we were having a boy how excited I was but a little part of me was sad about the clothes part of having a boy. Girl clothes are so cute and there are so many options - I was a bit disappointed that I wouldn't get to indulge in my love of shopping. I must say though, my disappointment was completely unwarranted. Dressing up Cash is one of the highlights of my day and we received as gifts (and I also bought, I must admit) many cute outfits for the age range he is in now. Below are some highlights of his daily daycare fashions for the week:

A Cowboys Loss: In Pictures

Tuesday, September 21, 2010
So hopeful, so optimistic. Last Sunday's loss against the Redskins must have been a fluke.


Cash begins to realize the Boys aren't looking so hot. Ross, however, is still oblivious.


Romo just did what!?


0-2 for the first time in years! So sad. I guess I'll just roll over now...

Teething


Cash, being the overachiever that he is, started teething at the ripe young age of 2 months old. Since then, he has been a constant stream of drool and occasional fuss. Until now, I've had to hold teething apparatuses for him since he was too little to grip anything and bring it to his mouth. Last night though, we had a revelation and the little guy can now hold his own teethers. I'm not sure he likes this one (his favorite is the large vibrating one that is still too heavy to hold) but it worked for a little while until the Baby Orajel kicked in. Hopefully his two top teeth will hurry up and poke through and give him some relief.

Chickenleg Rules the Roost

Fall is upon us and with that comes...Fantasy Football, of course. Ross has been a part (and champion) of the same Fantasy league for close to ten years now and has decided that this year, Cash would become the "manager" of his team under the pseudonym "Chickenleg Johnson". Chickenleg decided to post a photo to exude his dominance in the league and reputation as a high roller. So far Chickenleg and his team, God's Americans, are 2-0. His fantasy football future is so bright he had to wear some shades.

Labor Day in Hershey



Right before I went back to work, we took the train to Hershey, PA to go to our friends Bill and Meghan's wedding. As an extra bonus, Cash's Grammy and Papa came too and we all stayed at Auntie Jami's house. Even though Cash is only 3 months old, I was excited to "show" him Hershey (and by show him, basically he saw Auntie Jami's house and the Chocolate Ave. Grill, but still, he saw it). I definitely plan to make many a summer trip to Hershey to visit the Park and Chocolate World and all of our friends as Cash grows up and we can't wait to visit again soon!

Roll over

Sunday, September 12, 2010
Cash has started trying to roll over recently. He"s not quite there yet but he gets an A for effort!

Happy 3 months!

Cash is 3 months old today! Time really flies. He's doing so much now - he's starting to play and move around more, babble quite bit and smile and coo. Every day is a new adventure for him and for us too.

Back to work...

Wednesday, September 8, 2010
Yesterday was my first day back in the office and the official end of the "Stay at Home mom" period of my life. I'm definitely a huge mix of emotions about it. While I know that I'm not really wired to be a full time at home mom, leaving Cash at daycare yesterday morning was excruciating and it felt like my heart was being ripped out of my chest. The daycare we picked is nice and I know he will get great care and lots of stimulation and interaction, but there was a small part of me that felt that it was all just so wrong. He's still so tiny and he should be with me. However, life doesn't allow for that right now so off to daycare for 8 hours a day he goes and I'm left staring at his picture on my computer desktop screensaver. I hope it gets easier as the weeks go on...
