Sunday, July 31, 2005Tummy Time
Mommy is making sure I get my tummy time before bed. She hopes it will help me sleep longer at night. I don't understand what the big deal is at night, but both Mommy and Daddy seem a little upset when I get hungry when they are sleeping. My big brother likes to rub my head:
I like to show my eyes when I hear Mommy's voice:
I am starting to look around now too!

Thursday, July 21, 2005Big Helper
The other evening, I asked Daddy to hold Caroline. Mommy needed to go do something, and Daddy said "I'll take her", and then I put out my arms and said "I take her"! Boy, her hand are alot smaller than mine:
I help out with other things as well. I help Daddy change Caroline's diaper. I help him take out the trash. And when it gets dark outside, I close the blinds:

My hair is getting lighter. It's hard to see this is some of my pictures, but this picture shows it really well:
I like to sleep! And when I sleep, I do everything I can to get any light out of my eyes:

Saturday, July 16, 2005New clothes!
I went to my first doctor's appointment yesterday. I have lost some weight and only weigh 5.5 pounds. I have to go back Monday so the doctor can make sure I am gaining weight.
Daddy went out and got me some clothes that fit. All of my other clothes were too big. Daddy got some preemie clothes, and although they won't fit me for long, I'll be more comfortable for the next few weeks. I got some lightweight pajamas:
And some heavier pajamas:

Thursday, July 14, 2005Bath
The nurses at the hospital gave me a bath after I was born, but this was my first bath since I got home. Even though Mommy was very gentle, I still did not like getting a bath. Mommy washed my hair:
And my legs and feet:
And every other part! When she was all done I was dressed in my pajamas for the night:

Mommy and Caroline are at home now. I stayed with Grandma Jenschke while Mommy was in the hospital. Now we all get to make Caroline part of our family. I checked her out to make sure everything was there. She has fingers:
She makes loud noises when she gets hungry, so I point to her and tell Mommy and Daddy "baby funny".

Monday, July 11, 2005An Early "Hello"
I surprised Mommy and Daddy this morning! I made it known that I was to meet them today, so Daddy stayed home from work and took Mommy to the doctor. The doctor confirmed that in fact I would be here "by dinner time". After I got out they poked and prodded me and put yucky stuff in my eyes:
I am slender because I am a bit early. My legs are long and lean:
This evening I was so tired I could not stay awake. Mommy was trying to help me clear some fluid and I feel asleep on her hand:
Now it's back to sleep. I need to rest, as I met my big brother this evening and he has quite a lot of energy!

Monday, July 04, 20054th of July Brewing
I got to help Daddy brew today. My big job was to add the hops to the boiling wort. The burner underneath the kettle was really loud and it was really hot. I started to pour in the hops:
Uh oh, half of the hops got stuck in the bottom of the mug Daddy put them in for me:
Oh well, I thought it would be good to just toss the whole mug into the pot!
