10 weeks!







Chase sleeping in his chair for the first time in 2 weeks
(he's been sleeping on mom or dad while he's been sick!)


Chase in his swing for the first time- not
quite sure what to make of it.

Dad "playing" with Chase


Chase looking cute.

Tummy time and lifting his head!

Same tummy time...looks like he's giving up but he's doing so good.
brotherly love

dad's so excited to put up the tree!!!

Chase is 10 weeks old today! This past week, he has still been sick. He had a better day yesterday but last night was up a lot due to stuffy nose. As far as recent developments, at his Dr. appt on Monday, he weighed 9 pounds 2 ounces!! We couldn't believe it! He gained 2 pds in 3 weeks. He is in the 5th percentile for height, weight, and head circumference...so funny b/c Tayler has always been as well. Much to my surprise, he had his vaccinations even though he was sick. Poor guy:(
He is continuing to want to play more, tracks objects, and smiles ALL the time now. One funny thing he does is constantly moving his hands...if he is upset they move around fast, eating-slowly but still moving. It is quite funny-hard to explain-I will have to video it. He is talking non stop! It is so cute b/c he says ah goo-then we say it back and he will smile and say it louder than before....he is learning to communicate! He had some tummy time this week and was in his swing for the first time. Brian also put up the tree last weekend and our house has been filled with the smell of mulled cider, the sparkle of lights, and the sounds of Christmas music. I think Brian has officially converted me to being a little obsessed with Christmas!
On another note, I go back to work for my 15 hours a week on Monday. I have worked randomly the last few weeks but officially Monday is the day. Chase will be with me or Brian so I won't be leaving him but it will still be an adjustment. That is about it for this past week. We are dedicating Chase this Sunday so say a prayer for him! Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Great weight gain!!! I was always proud of mine for gaining 2 lbs. a month, but they always remained in the 25th for weight and height, so it made me feel like they were small then, lol!
The first set of shots were the worst for my boys. They had fevers for 3 days afterwards and were super fussy. It's been much better since then.

You all look wonderful! What a cute family. I am sorry that I did not know about Chase's dedication. My two favorite people from Bethany...you and Tamara. I would loved to see such wonderful babies dedicated to Jesus! The pics are so good to follow your family's growth and fun times together (except Thanksgiving, hahahaha). I share the sentiments. Football, bah humbug. Have a great day!
