My Cute, Sweet Baby

Here is a picture of Cedric I took today outside, while our new neighbor's chocolate lab wouldn't stop barking at me. Nevertheless, who can resist that cute face. We are 3 weeks away from our trip to NY, I'm excited but nervous about traveling on a plane and with a baby. *shudder* It's a short visit, but it should be fun seeing how Cedric reacts to his NY family. Are you ready.....?

Daddy's Last Day!

Today is my daddy's last day at Fiserv...I will, of course, never remember my daddy working there but I do have this picture of me being there. I'm happy to know that my daddy will be a video game developer....all the kids will be hanging out at my house. ;) I'm so happy for my daddy....I can't wait to visit the new place. I love you, daddy and I wish you all the luck in your new, fun, dream job.

Isabel's First Birthday

Isabel on her way to a sugar-induced sleep.

Here is Isabel and Cedric at Isabel's first birthday party. She turned one year old today! The first time Cedric met Isabel she was 7 months old...time is flying. At Amanda's baby shower for Isabel, over a year ago, she was at the end of her pregnancy and I was at the beginning of mine. Cedric was very cute with Isabel...he was trying to put his arm around her. Cedric is already flirting with the girls...flashing the shy smile with the big, blue eyes. Below is a picture of Cedric and Isabel when they first met four and a half months ago. Look how different they were back cute! :)

Ripple by Grateful Dead

If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung,
Would you hear my voice come thru the music,
Would you hold it near as it were your own?

Its a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken,
Perhaps theyre better left unsung.
I dont know, dont really care
Let there be songs to fill the air.

Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty,
If your cup is full may it be again,
Let it be known there is a fountain,
That was not made by the hands of men.

There is a road, no simple highway,
Between the dawn and the dark of night,
And if you go no one may follow,
That path is for your steps alone.

Ripple in still water,
When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.

But if you fall you fall alone,
If you should stand then whos to guide you?
If I knew the way I would take you home.

La dee da da da, la da da da da, da da da, da da, da da da da da
La da da da, la da da, da da, la da da da, la da, da da.

Cedric is Growing and Growing

Cedric went to the doctor yesterday to have his four month check-up to see how big he is getting and to get his dreaded shots. Poor baby! :(

Cedric weighed 14 lbs. 2.4 oz, and he is in the 25th percentile for his weight. His height was 25 and a half inches, and he is in the 60th percentile. Basically, he is a tall and thin lad. The doctor's assistant was a little bit concerned, but not really, about his weight, but I'm not. I was the same way when I was a baby. Cedric is getting plenty of food, he's just an active little guy with a fast metabolism. :)

The doctor was amazed about how advanced he is...he jokingly said, "Are you sure you are a four month old?" I was demonstrating how Cedric not only bares weight on his legs but he takes steps while being held, too. Cedric was also laughing and having a good time until the doctor held him down to look in his ears. He felt so violated and betrayed...poor guy. Than he had to get a liquid immunization and four shots...all were very unpleasant for my baby. He got lots of hugs and kisses from mommy and daddy though.

He is sleeping now! Trying to recover from the medicine working its way through his body.
