Everyone keeps asking, "Who does Henry look like"? We think he looks like Henry. But, to satisfy our curiosity (and yours), we rummaged through our stash of old photos and found baby pictures to compare.

Wade at 4 months

Michal at 6 months ( 4 month pictures available in Stillwater)

Between the three of us, I definitely win the Most Hair Award.

We introduced a new toy this week - Henry's Rainforest Jumperoo. He LOVES it. Henry likes to practice sitting and standing...and dislikes being on his back much during playtime. The Jumperoo is the perfect solution.

What do you suppose these do?

It seems Henry reveals a new expression every day. Below are some of our favorites.

Ah, shucks...

This is too much fun.

Aren't I a handsome little devil?

Ready, set, go!

Oh, no...I think I'm stuck. Mom, do you think my thighs have outgrown the Bumbo?

14 weeks

Henry is growing and growing AND GROWING. He's also getting stronger and learning new tricks every week - last week Henry started reaching for some of his favorite stuffed animals and toys. We've also dropped our late night bottle. Hallelujah! Now our last bottle is around 7, followed by a bath (especially on heavy projectile days) and bedtime stories. Eyes are usually droopy by 8:30 and we're tucked away by 9. And then it's Zzzz until 3 am! Maybe at six months, when we introduce cereal, we'll actually be able to sleep through the night?!

Candice, Henry’s nanny and new best friend, snapped some pictures on Friday afternoon. The surprise email/pictures were exactly what I needed to get me through the day.

Handsome Henry had his 3-month baby pictures taken July 24. The pictures are fuzzy (because I scanned the proofs), but below are some favorites. When we left, Henry had put on such a show that he was asked to sign a model release form.

Mamaw - I know I promised to update every week...and it's been two. I hope Henry's 3-month pictures make the wait worth it.
