Happy Halloween

It's cold and rainy here but we plan to spend the day with good
friends. Watching football, roasting pumpkin seeds and most of all
just relaxing! Hope your day and weekend are great too!

Doctor Visit

Walker had his 2 month visit today. I was so proud of how well he did!
He weighs 14.5 lbs and is 24" long (his head is big. But that's just
to hold all his smarts:)
He made it through his first cold about 2 weeks ago without any meds
or doc visit and we were super happy about that!
We started his vaccinations. We felt like this was best for us as a
family and best for Walker. There's a lot of info out there that
stands on each side of the debate. We are giving single dose vaccines
spread out over a little more time. Accompanied with the fact that in
everything we do and each decision we make we just continue to pray
over our son.
He only cried a second after the shot was given, then he was back to
his jolly self. I didn't shed a tear...surprisingly enough!
We love our little man and are so thankful for his health!

10 weeks or 70 days or 2.5 months...

Whichever you prefer! Either way - we have made it 10 full weeks!
Walker was dedicated last sunday at our home church, Trinity Fellowship in GA.
It was such a sweet time with family and friends. I cried of course and really missed my grandfather. It was one of those moments that I realy wished he could have been a part of. At the end of the dedication, the pastor said, "you know Walker, I know someone who would have loved to be here today. And one day when you get a cell phone, give me a call and I will tell you all about him" At this point the tears were unstoppable!
Here are some pictures post-dedication. Many thanks to my mom for helping me with his home-made dedication shirt. Some left-over drapery fabric, a zig-zag stitch, one $3.00 onesie and a handsome baby boy!
(he did wear pants to the dedication...no worries) along with his John Deere socks!
Looking at one of his sweet grandmas. This grandma doesn't have a name yet...still to be decided!
Enjoying some tummy time while home with daddy! Dad has become quite the photographer!
And another! What a happy little boy!
Here's what Walker is doing at 10 weeks:
sleeping through the night (first time last night!!)
occasionally rolling from his tummy to his back
eating about 5oz every 3 hours
taking good naps
smiling a lot
talking, cooing, gurgling
LOVING a bath - I'm pretty sure he would stay in the bath for hours!!
Wearing cloth diapers (BumGenius)
and last but not least - STEALING our hearts!
Hopefully this weekend will include a pumpkin patch, some rest, good family time and outdoor fun! I really want to roast some pumpkin seeds and be super-domesticated but I'm not sure if that'll happen!

Contraction data

Totally random - but I ran acrosss this in my e-mails tonight.
It's my contraction data from when I went into labor with Walker. I started timing them using the iContraction app on my iPhone at about 11pm on August 13th - and kept up until we went to the hospital at about 9am on August 14th. We finally met our little man at 7pm that night! (it actually starts at the bottom)

A happy SAHD...

Just for now though.
I will be going back to work on Wednesday and Aaron will be staying at
home with the little guy. There are some new opportunities on the
horizon and this is is the best decision for our family for now plus
Aaron will have more time to dedicate to a very challenging semester
in seminary.
I can't think of anyone better to stay with Walker than his Dad!!
So pray that I don't have a breakdown on Wednesday and that Aaron will
remember all his super-cool dad tricks while I'm gone!

Walker says hello...
