The Weed



He's growing like one, that is! We had Henry's 2 month appointment yesterday. Drum roll please.........11lbs 12 oz and 23 1/2 inches. The doc agreed with me that he's pretty much perfect :)
I was burping Henry earlier today and realized just how cute the back of his head is, which I know is pretty pathetic on my part. I especially love those ears (which are mine, by the way)!

The Name Sake


Pictured left to right: Emily, Geneva, Geneva and Henry. This is my beautiful Grandma. She turns 84 on Friday (don't tell her I told you) and she and my grandpa have been married for 62 years. She has some amazing stories and she loves to tell them :) She was Miss Kentucky, the first woman in the Coast Guard from the state, a pin-up girl for a naval ship (back when bathing suits were more modest than today's business suits), and she's lived all over the world as a Naval Officer's wife. I am very grateful for my granparents' love and the opportunities they have afforded me over the years.

My little helper





Henry thinks his cousins are the greatest! Caleb loves helping with his sister and cousin, even if it means force feeding a binkie :) He even lets Henry borrow his carseat!

Deliriously Happy


Henry was already down for the night when Mike came home this evening. He just couldn't resist pulling Henry out of bed for some father/son time. Henry was completely out of it and looked a little dazed. All of the sudden, he really woke up and realized who was holding him and he got the biggest smile on his face! He spent the next 15 minutes as happy as could be in his daddy's arms.

Happy Early Birthday!!!!!

Mike came home from school today and said I was getting my birthday present early. After making me look a little bit (sometimes he sends me on crazy goose chases!), I found these!!!! I have been wanting this Costco set FOREVER. I'm so excited I think I might pop an eyeball!!!! Thank you Mike!

Mad Skillz


Before I start, I'm very proud of myself...so if you see me wearing this, at least act like you like it :)
Today I spent most of my day at my friend Lindsay's house trying to learn how to sew. I went to an all girls high school and an all women's college and some how was never offered any type of home economics coarse. The only other time I've used a sewing machine has been to put binding on a square of fleece for a baby blanket or two. I've seen these contraptions called "Hooter Hiders" and decided I needed one as not to embarrass everyone at church. I don't know from experience yet, but I hear that little ones start to yank on the blanket, exposing you to whomever is in eye shot. So...in order to #1 save money and #2 learn something new, I made my own Hooter Hider knock off today. It's great! There is boning between the straps so I can see Henry and he can see me. I think I might add this to my list of baby shower gift ideas. Mike can't quite decide if pink is ok for his son, but I figure it's my accessory, not Henry's :).....right?

This is the Life!



Henry turned 6 weeks old yesterday, it's hard to believe! He spends most of his time lounging around the house, nursing, napping and hanging out with Daddy. He's such a sweet little boy (as long as Mom doesn't eat tomatoes)!

Henry's Blessing


Today at church we had the opportunity to do a special event in Henry's life where we offically "give" Henry his full name of Michael Henry Swinson, and also give him a blessing. It was a special thing to be a part of. And of course he got all decked out for the special occasion.


Strike a pose Family!


Now Henry knows how to strike a pose... this reminds me of the song line: "walk like an egyptian..."


Henry looking very classy in his little white overalls.
