4 months!

Sam's 4 months old! Today he went for his 4-month checkup at the doctor's office. Sam got a couple of shots, but he did great. He's up to 13 lbs 4 oz, and 24" long. Look how big he's getting:

Weekend Outing

Every weekend we try to have an outing together as a family. Last Sunday we got a lot of snow, so we bundled Sam up in his "bear" fleece and took him to one of our favorite coffee shops. We sat and had coffee in front of their fireplace--Sam took a nap while Mike worked on his computer and I read a book.

I'm not sure what Sam thought about the fleece. He was warm, but he looks..surprised?

Jerry the Giraffe

No mom! The finger puppet is supposed to go on your finger, not mine!

It ends up right in his mouth anyway ;)

(Jerry was a gift from Jerry and Marilyn--sorry Marilyn, "Marilyn the Giraffe" doesn't have quite the same ring to it.)

My Funny Valentine

With Mike in Germany, Sam is Mommy's Valentine this year--
he's so thoughtful :)

(Sam's red cowboy sweatshirt is from our friends Mike and Gina--perfect for today!)

Sam's Elephant

Sam's not strong enough to make it squeak yet, but still has fun playing with the squeaky elephant from Grandma Carol and Grandpa Jim...
though "playing" usually means chewing on his trunk :)
