Are you sure your only 4 months old?

Yes, this is Blake sitting on the floor (with his boppi around him for support)!  He will be 4 months old in a few days and AMAZES me with his strength.  Babies don't typically sit until about 6 months.  He can't sit on his own yet, but with just a little support so he doesn't tumble backwards he IS able to sit up. It looks like in the picture that he is leaning on the couch, but the couch is actually a few feet away from him.  He is doing that on his own! Excuse the spit up on his face, I wanted to snap a picture before it was too late.  He LOVES this book too.  I can't remember who got it for him, but THANK YOU to whoever did, it is one of his faves!

Tummy time

Blake LOVES tummy time! I let him play this morning while I put some laundry away...

And when I came back......................

Say cheese!

Blake smiles all the time, but we have the hardest time catching them on the camera.  As soon as we pull it out he quits smiling and looks away from us (maybe because everyday of his life so far has been like a photo shoot).  Daddy caught this gummy grin while Blake was playing on the floor with his reindeer from Great Grandma Vertrees.

We went to the Illini/Michigan game this past week.  It was freezing outside, but we had a ton of fun at the game!  Blake got to stay with Aunt Jen and Uncle Matt while we went to the game.  Although Blake didn't come with us to the game, he still rocked his Illini gear (thanks Aunt Jen and Uncle Matt!).  I have no idea what oskee-wow-wow means, but they sang it repeatedly throughout the game.  Anybody know what that means?

Christmas babes!

We had Christmas for my family at our house this year.  This was Blake and Ethan's first Christmas!  My sister brought Santa hats for them and we couldn't pass up this photo op........
