My how you just continue to make our hearts grow :) Typically I wouldn't write this blog until next month, but I'm trying this new "proactive" thing considering I will need to use it more once your little brother comes along :)
I think you're really getting sick of the baby food these days, which puts your mom "the horrible chef" to test now with what to feed you! You love anything finger food. You've tried just about everything these days and I'm pretty sure you hate those baby food green beans we've been trying to get you to eat, so we've had to stick with the sweet potatoes and mixed veggies for your vegetables. You LOVE fruit and anything sweet (sorry...I think you got that from me!) Speaking of...here are 2 funny pictures of you trying your very first brownie that your daddy made. That's right, Daddy CAN bake :) I just love your face after we put it in your mouth, you can tell it was heaven and you enjoyed every second of it!

You are such a growing boy...I'll have to probably update your stats after we go to the doc on Monday (it's Friday morning), but I'm guessing your around a 22-23 pounder :) That's a BIG turkey!
You are SO lucky to have so many wonderful people in your life who just adore you like your aunt Jessica. Although she isn't your aunt by blood...she may as well be as much as she loves you! She took you on your first excursion to the Butterfly Pavilions Holiday Lights extravaganza! You didn't quite know what to think, but when you saw "nemo" you couldn't take your eyes off of him haha! You were glued to the glass of the fish tank! I think we'll have to go back there when it is brighter in the day so you can actually see all the butterflies though. Your aunt Jessica insisted you read her favorite book "There was an old lady...who swallowed a fly, I don't know whyyyy she swallowed that fly" (singing in Jessica's voice). It is so much fun to see you start to interact with the rest of the world, whether it be you discovering a new look, sense, taste or interacting with people.
We love you so much and never knew a love and joy like this!
