17 weeks!

Preston turned 17 weeks yesterday. He'll be 4 months old in just a few days. He's getting to be a lot more fun now - he loves to smile and laugh and we do everything we can to make him do both. He's very ticklish too which is fun for all of us. He rolled over from his tummy to his back for the first time on February 16th. Some days he'll do it over and over and some days his arm gets stuck and he can't quite get all the way over. That's his first big milestone! Here's some pictures from our photo session yesterday:

A special dinner

One year ago today I told my hubby that I was pregnant. It was one of the most wonderful days of my life and I will never forget it. I made him a special dinner with 'baby' foods to see if he would pick up on the clues. He didn't.

Portabella burgers
BABY portabella mushrooms
BABY swiss cheese
BABY carrots
BABY spinach salad
Ice cream with pickles (we didn't eat them together)
BABY Ruth candy bars
Decaf iced tea

And I rented the movie 'Baby on Board'

I gave him a box to open after dinner - it was filled with 4 positive pregnancy tests and a due date calendar. I had all the tests upside down and he had no idea what they were until he started turning them over. It was so much fun to watch him finally realize what was going on. It was a great night.

To celebrate our 1 year baby anniversary, I'm recreating this same dinner for tonight. And, no, I'm not pregnant :)

15 weeks old

Preston is 15 weeks old today! I'm taking a picture of him every Wednesday in the same chair for his first year to see how much he changes and grows. It's fun to look back at the pictures - he's such a big boy now! I weighed him this morning and he's up to 13 pounds. He got this puppy dog outfit as a baby shower gift and it finally fits him. The booties are little puppy faces and sooo cute! I love dressing up my lil' man :)

Superbowl Sunday

Preston got all ready for Superbowl Sunday. He had everything he needed - milk, Doritos, a comfy chair and a cute football outfit. It was all staged though, neither one of us watched it.
