My first trip to Nebraska

Is this Husker Red Grandpa? Just went on my first road trip to Lincoln to see Grandpa and Grandma Russell. I also met my cousins Owen and Devon for the first time along with Aunt Jenni and Uncle Logan. This is a picture of me and my Uncle Matt. He's cool although he's a Notre Dame fan and not a Husker or Cyclone. I can tell he's going to be teaching me lots of stuff as I get older. I did good on the ride out to NE, but the ride home is another story. Just to drive Mom nuts I decided I'd cry for about 2 hours. I didn't want anything, just felt like crying. I think I was just tired from the weekend but it was awesome meeting some of my family for the first time. Looking forward to Christmas with them!

Thanksgiving 2006

WOW, what a day! We ate, slept and watched football. It was nice spending the day with my Mom and Dad. As you can see above, I ate some sweet potatoes but let's be honest, they were not very good. The other pictures are Me on Grandpa Hill's lap (he likes to hold me like this), me and my Aunt Traci and me and Mom before our hike in the woods. Mom looks tired doesn't she?


Well, this is what I do now. I have so much fun at daycare during the day that I refuse to sleep. When I get home, I pretty much crash instantly. The picture above is Mom holding me and trying to wake me up to take a bath and get ready for bed. As you can see, I wasn't having it.

The picture above that is my new trick. I like to hold my OWN bottle. I'm almost 5 months old people, it's time. Don't mind my Mom's cleavage in that picture, she shows it off too much :).

Hi everyone!

Well, over the weekend I got to meet my Aunt Kristy and Aunt Judy for the first time. Boy, they are some crazy people! Spent a lot of time at the hospital over the weekend visiting Great Grandpa Red, as the call him, as he's sick and not getting any better. Mom went out over the weekend to celebrate her birthday so I stayed home and hung out with Dad. We watched LOTS of football. Did anyone catch the Bears game last night! WooHoo! Have a great week everyone.

My 4 Month appointment was today

Today, I had my 4 month check-up (I am actually 4 months today too). Here are my stats:
25 1/4 inches long and 18 lbs 1 ounce. HOLY MOLY! Remember, I was 20 inches long at birth at 9 lbs 6 oz which means I've nearly doubled my birth weight! My Dr. said that I was a "brut". I think she's right. I also found out that I have a double ear infection. DOUBLE WHAMMY! I'm now taking an antibiotic for the next 10 days to clear that up. Still fighting a cough but all in all, I am still pretty happy!!!! Mom and Dad are grateful for that too. Take care everyone! Check back soon for some new pictures of me too!!
