Flint Trip

We went to Flint for the weekend for Ari's baby shower. I didn't get any photos of the shower but they are on facebook if you want to see them. 

While we were there Moses met Uncle Dave at Bob Evans.  

Moses sucked his thumb. 

 We went to a Michigan game. 

He met Great Grandma and Grandpa Rosencrantz. 

I made a diaper cake for Ari's shower... I added more to it before the shower. This is an "in the works" photo. 

It was a good trip. We stayed two nights and Moses slept like a champ. He is doing very well with night time sleeping...now we just have to work on napping. 


1 month Moses

One Month Ago we welcomed you to the world.

I've searched for cute ideas of how to chart his first 12 months. Many blogged and pinned photos if the baby sitting in a chair. Well, I have a chair and so.....this is what turned out. 

Let's just say I won't be becoming a professional photographer any time soon. :) He did a great job letting me try to pose him. 

So in a month this is what Moses has been up to...
He makes eye contact
He is smiling at you
He is awake more during the day but sleeping through the night
He enjoys car rides and every time we go out he falls asleep and misses the whole outing. 
He is active. When he is awake his legs are moving
He loves to be swaddled at night. 
He sucks on a pacifier

He enjoys his baths at night. 
He enjoys being held by many people. 
He toots and poops and eats and sleeps and coos and does everything else he should.


Vistors from all around...

...come to see MOSES! 
We have been blessed by the number of people who have travelled the snowy Michigan roads to meet Moses. Here is a little tribute to their love.
