Happy First Halloween Ephraim!

October, 31, 2009
We had fun at our church's TRUNK or Treat--we opened our trunk and shared candy with the other little church kiddos. Ephraim was a hit...he was a guitar and mom and dad where hippies carrying their cutie pie guitar! Here are the pics

Eph wanted to keep the paci....but we kicked it for the celebration!

Big Boy Ephraim

October 15, 2009--4 and a 1/2 months old!

I can't really remember now how old in weeks my little guy is. I was always wanting him to be the "older" even if he was IN his 12 week, I would say "nearly 13 weeks!" I know, I know, its a little silly, but I wanted my little guy to be a big guy. Now, at 4.5 months old, he is a BIG boy and I wish he was little again.

Ephraim has rolled from his back to his belly, started saying his vowels and consonants (today its MMMM as, in for MOMMY!), and is actually scooting around when he is on his back. Daddy continues to get little guy to laugh by making silly faces and playing with him. Eph gets a really determined look on his face while kicking. Also, when he is super excited (usually about food!) he starts kicking like crazy. This kid is ready to move!

Little guy started on some rice cereal and is weighing in at 14lbs 14 ounces! He continues to get most of his nutrition from breast milk. He is growing SO much everyday its crazy. Jerret and I just love spending time with him and watching him grow! Here are some photos to update. Maybe a video, if blogger lets me :)

Ephraim at 18 & 19 weeks

My boy is so big! He had his 4 month appointment last week and he weighs 14lbs 14ounces. NEARLY 15 pounds. What a big guy! He is nearly 25 inches long. My guy is now laughing out loud and has found his feet. The time is flying by, but I just love being his mommy : )
