Hanging Out

Today was spent just hanging out with mom and Wrigley at home. Just recently mom got out a bunch of our toys and we set up shop right in the middle of the family room. We are finally taking interest in some of the toys especially the ones we can put in our mouths. As you can see from the picture above we are also working on sitting up by ourselves. We still need to use our arms to balance, but we are getting stronger. All I can say is sitting up beats tummy time any day.

Lily Rolls Over

I have been rolling over since mid January, but I only do it on "Lily terms" (when I want to). Mom finally captured me in action today for all of you to see. Check it out!

Two Cribs

Lily's Crib ------------------------ Ryan's Crib

Well, mom and dad broke down and set up the second crib today. We can all thank Lily for this since she cannot seem to keep still during the night. The final decision was made by mom late Friday night when for the third time she had to come into our nursery and rescue me because Lily had managed to get her legs over my head and put me into a headlock. Mind you this was all done with a smile on her face. The first time she was kicking my legs, and the second time mom rescued me she was boucing her head on my tummy. Mom said Lily is getting me back for all of the abuse she took while were were still in mommy's tummy. That's not very nice of her if you ask me. I must say though, that after a few weeks of Lily's beatings I am happily sleeping 6-8 hours uninterrupted in my own crib. Good decision mom!

Valentine's Day

We spent Valentine's Day with mom and dad at the ASU men's basketball game vs. #7 Stanford. Mom had us all decked out in our ASU gear, and everyone said we looked so cute. Dad took me into the tunnel before the game while mom and Lily sat in our seats. A bunch of the ASU players rubbed my head for good luck as they ran out onto the floor. It must have worked because ASU won in overtime 72-68!!! Jenn, a girl dad works with at ASU, also joined us for the game and helped watch us during all of the excitement. All of the fans around us were proud that we stayed awake until the game ended, but they should have realized we were too excited to fall asleep. I bet we get asked to go to more games now since we are such good luck.

Tummy Time

The weather has been beautiful here with highs in the upper 70's so we spent some time outside today on our tummies. We'll apologize in advance to all of our relatives and friends who are suffering through the brutal cold in the midwest...stinks to be you! Anyway, neither Lily nor I like tummy time very much. I mean who wants to have to work that hard just to lift your head up. Today, for some reason though, it felt good to be on our tummies. I think Wrigley liked our time outside too because he got to play fetch which doesn't happen as often as it used to from what I hear. Now that it is warming up here hopefully we'll be able to hang out outside more often. You should all come and join us!!!

A Rough Day of Shopping

Since my brother always gets to put his two cents in, I thought I'd take a moment to share some thoughts. Today Ryan, mom, and I got out with our friends, Donna and Landen Tow, to do some shopping. This is my new favorite pastime since it always ends in mom buying Ryan and I cool new clothes. Who wouldn't enjoy that?!? After a long day of driving from store to store and the Chandler Mall I must admit I was exhausted. After we got home I had to have a late afternoon snack, but unfortunately I fell asleep midway through snack time. Of course mom captured the moment since I looked so cute.

Daddy's Birthday!

Today was daddy's birthday and we got to celebrate with him and mom. Mom and I baked a spice cake for him this morning while Lily slept. We then set out his presents and waited all day for him to come home. We went out to dinner at Joe's Farm Grill where dad feasted on giant shrimp, and teased us of course because we couldn't have any. I was licking my lips in anticipation though...maybe someday. Dad also opened presents from us and said it was weird seeing our names on his card. He better get used to that. We ended the day by using dad as a jungle gym which was quite fun if I do say so myself. Overall, I think he had a pretty good day and it is a bummer that we have to wait an entire year to do it again.

Crazy Weekend!

We sure did have a busy weekend. It all started Thursday night with our evening at the Thayer's house (see previous post). Friday, mom and dad strapped us in our Baby Bjorns and we headed out for an afternoon at the FBR Open. That is the PGA golf tournament for those of you who didn't know. We almost got hit by two golf balls ... someone sure does have bad luck. Hmmm ... mom!!! Saturday, mom and dad threw a baby shower for Uncle Larry and Aunt Pam. We had lots of fun and even got to play a game with them. Uncle Larry and Aunt Pam had to race and see who could change a diaper faster. Uncle Larry and Lily technically won, but he was nice and let Aunt Pam and I catch up and take the title. What a nice guy!
Finally on Sunday we went to Bryce and Jarrod's place to watch the Superbowl. We were so exhausted after the game that once we got home Lily and I both had a little snack, and then we headed off to bed and slept for over 9 hours. Mom and dad were grateful for that. Now today we are enjoying a relaxing, rainy day at home with mom (yes, it does rain in Arizona).
