Sweetest little baby ever


Okay, I know we are biased, but we have the sweetest little baby boy ever. He's always smiling and happy. He just loves life and really makes me glad to be alive. He is such a special and amazing little dude. That's all for now... just that I love him like crazy!

Vander's on his way to crawling!

Vander has figured out his own version of crawling... he tucks his left shoulder down and with his right leg straight he pushes and reaches with his right arm. When he gets to what he wanted he then reaches for is with his left arm. He also rolls and pivots, so he can pretty much get around, but it's still pretty slow and deliberate... I don't think crawling is too far away now. I was kind of hoping he would wait until we moved. We'll see. I tried to video tape his "crawling", but he won't perform for the camera. He also seems to smile right after I take a picture every time. What's that about???

This is the sweetest picture ever.

Another tooth!


Vander got his second top front tooth. He has 4 teeth now... I can't believe how fast it goes. His hair is really cute and fluffy... just thought I would add that in because everyone comments about how cute it is.

Weekend with Daddy

Vander spent the weekend with his Daddy. They had a great time. He also spent a couple of days with his grandparents. Justin says that he started missing me on Saturday. I missed him like crazy. I went to Humbolt with Freddy to visit with Colby. We lived the college lifestyle and played disk golf in the redwoods.

Tooth #3

February 8, 2009 Vander's 3rd tooth popped through. He got his first top tooth!

First word

The other day Vander was in his bumbo in the kitchen. Justin walked into the room, Vander threw his arms up and smiled. He said, "Dada!"

Stomach Flu

Vander somehow came down with stomach flu and was tossin' his cookies. He then passed it to me. I passed it to Justin and it's still there... Yucko.

I'm gonna dunk.

Vander had his last swim lesson on Saturday (for this session) and we dunked him 6 times. He only fussed for about 2 seconds the first time, 1 second the second time and then not at all after that. I was very impressed. He didn't have a problem with being under water at all. I don't think we will re-register for swim lessons now that our house is on the market just due to having to leave at inopportune times and all that jazz.
