Round, round, get around, I get around.

Okay, so it’s widely known that I can be fussy sometimes. That’s just because I’m often stuck in the house when I want to be outside moving around. That always calms me down.

Every once in a while we take trips in the car.

Sometimes we walk in the stroller.

And now I've been to the store too

Daddy & Mommy have both carried me around in the Moby wrap.

Finally, there’s always my running shoes.

Early this morning I turned one month old. What a month it has been.

We’ve had plenty of exciting firsts.

With more visitors today, I was able to continue my fake out streak. That is, my streak of perfect, cute behavior when people come over to visit, followed closely by fussy behavior when they leave. That way the visitors don’t believe Mom & Dad when they say I can be fussy sometimes.

Cara & John stopped by in the morning. I got to feel Baby G. (i.e. my future girlfriend) kick.

In the afternoon, Grandma & Grandpa Raguet, Aunt Michelle, Uncle Mark, and Cousin Logan came to visit. This was the first time I got to meet Mark & Logan!

Logan was on his best behavior while I slept.

Sure, I got a little fussy when they left, but Dad & I (and later Mom) went for a walk. Mom dressed Dad up in a baby wrap that looked like a Jedi outfit so he could carry me. He didn’t have room for a light saber, though.

I’ve gotten to know Momma pretty well these past 9 1/2 months. All I can say is that I really lucked out.

Good night, Momma. I love you.

Nap time

Grandma & Grandpa Schofield came to visit last weekend, and I slept right through their visit. Well they decided to come back for a visit last night, bringing with them my Great Grandma & Great Grandpa Bassett. Yeah, I slept right through their whole visit as well. They didn’t seem to mind though.

My mean old parents gave me my first “bath” on Friday. I hated it!

Saturday, Grandma and Grandpa Schofield came for a visit… or at least that’s what Mom & Dad tell me. I slept right through it.

Later in the afternoon I went for a walk with Mom & Dad.

I liked it so much I went for another long walk with Daddy this morning while Mommy took a nap.

Daddy sure can swaddle me well, but I don’t always need swaddling. Sometimes Daddy can calm me down just by holding me.

Joyful daddy

And if I’m really lucky I can lay on his chest and listen to the soothing sound of his heart beating.

As you can see, I’ve got some awful big shoes to fill.
