Turkey Time

Cooking Thanksgiving dinner with Mom.  We stayed in town and celebrated with our family of 3.  

Happy Turkey man.  

We missed spending time with our extended family, but had a relaxing day together.  We have so many things to be thankful for this year!

The turkey and I weigh about the same amount.  I slept through the Thanksgiving meal in my lamb seat.

I'm getting better and better at using my Bumbo seat!  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

6 Weeks Old

Hanging with my oldest buddy Simon.  We met on my birthday in the hospital.  Now our parents exchange baby-sitting so they can go on dates.  He's not very happy right now.

Flexing my muscles.  I'm loving my new cloth diapers, and so are my parents.

My changing table is one of my favorite places to smile for Mommy and Daddy.

Getting ready for my shower.

Love to hang-out on my Boppy.

6 weeks is a fun age!  I'm starting to show more expression, though I often furrow my brow and look concerned, like in this picture.  Mom says I'm just deep in thought.  I am smiling more and more and have started focusing on faces.  I love to stare at my Daddy.  I'm also sleeping more!  I take good naps during the day and sleep 5-6 hours at night.  Mom and Dad know they are very blessed.

One Month Old (a little late)

Waving to Mom

I'm listening and watching carefully

My favorite new hangout

Rocking Daddy's Cowboy sweat suit from the 80's.
Its been a great five weeks!  My mom finally finished writing her birth story for my baby book.  For all you labor and delivery ladies, you can find it on the main page in the right column.

Fun times with the Roaches!

I can't quite do the Bumbo seat yet...but I'm getting close! In the meantime it's a struggle. 
Check out my cool sweater vest. I'm pretty old for my age.

Mom forgot that the mirror would also capture the camera in the picture. I'm trying to tell her.

I'm breaking it down in the tub. The loin cloth was mom's idea.

Not my best moment.

Mom + me + Dad + Carter Mountain = my idea of a good time 

Gramps surprises me sometimes.

I loved having visitors! They loved me really well.

Sherrie gave some helpful tips to Mom and Dad. Thanks!

Apples galore.

I tried to eat the leaf, but I couldn't quite reach it.

Like Grandpa like grandson.

I'm trying to look out of the corner of my eye, but I'm not very good at it yet.

Video of Joel smiling!

This Link should show you Joel getting his smile...and cry on.

My First Halloween and Working with Daddy

The cutest skeleton around, and I glowed in the dark!  Thanks Num Num!

 My trick-or-treat buddy the cow, aka Tobin Carter.

 We ran into our friend Stacia on the lawn.

 As you can see, I was very into the trick-or-treating on the lawn.  (But I never opened my eyes while we were there.  Maybe next year I'll be awake!)

 Our friends the Carters joined us.

 My friend the lion, aka Simon Stringham.  

Working hard with Dad.  Yes, I am asleep on a legal pad. 

Tobin Carter is not sure what to think of me.  Is it a toy?  What is this small thing??

Burping on Mom.  I'm holding my head up more and more!

My first tub bath and Grandma K comes to town!

 I loved the warm water!

 Bath time is fun.

 Grandma spoiled me rotten for 5 days.

 We took lots of naps together.

 Here I am looking very grown up in my lamb seat.

 One of my hobbies is latching onto Mommy's chin.

 I had my first diaper rash last week, so I got to spend my tummy time naked!  I loved this.

 Grandma cooking lots of food for Mommy and Daddy.
