Once again, to usher in the Christmas Season, our little hip hop elves:
Honestly, could they get any cuter?

Remember this sad hibiscus? She was left here by the previous owners and needed some TLC.
Look at the crumbling pot!
Now look at her, repotted, fertilized and on a fancy roller in our new backyard!
You can catch a glimpse of the new patio and second try at sod. Sad, sad story what happened to the first try at sodding the entire backyard. This time, we're doing well.

I hear so often, "Wow! SJ really looks like HJ."
I also hear just as often, "Wow! SJ really looks like AE."
HJ at 3 months:
Whatcha think? What's your vote?
A) He looks like HJ.
B) He looks like AE.
C) He is the PERFECT combination of both!
At this point SJ,
- coos and squeals
- weighs 11 lbs. 5 oz.
- smiles in return
- puts his hands together
- puts his hands in his mouth
- gnaws on his hands
- spits up...a lot
- rolls from tummy to back
- wears 3-6 month size clothes
- stands and bounces with assistance
- stares at and smiles at the ceiling fan
- tracks objects with his eyes
Have I mentioned the drooling? The doctor thought he might be teething...uh, no. Let's sleep through the night before we begin THAT adventure.
At least it will be the last time we get to comfort a teething child.
The nights have been pretty rough for eleven weeks, but the last two nights have yielded in almost six hour stretches for our little man. Just in time for our trip next week to Georgia for Thanksgiving!
SJ got to make his first visit to the Magic Kingdom while Nana and Papa came to visit.
He spent most of that visit here:
The girls both got to ride "Thunder Mountain"!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her expression, gazing up at Woody!
This one is priceless!
Can you hear the theme song of Wonder Woman playing? Not quite...
As SJ has so many of his "firsts" right now, we've been dealing with the ugly side of reflux, sleep deprivation and getting used to life with three. We try and keep reminding ourselves that THIS IS THE LAST TIME WE'LL HAVE A NEWBORN.
Is he really still a newborn?
No. He's eleven weeks.
And it's the last time we'll have an eleven-week-old baby.
