splish splash

I took this video a while back of Blake taking a bath. Now you can see why the walls, floor, and mom never remain dry during bathtime!

Just a few new pictures of Blake to share with you all.... it's been a while!

No steps by himself yet- but he's walking the couches like a pro!!! =)

He's no longer oblivious to the camera... like in this picture, he's always trying to get his hands on it.

Blake had fun playing with his friend Lydia today, and practicing to be a big brother.

An explanation for the silly face- I don't have one. When ever I asked him to smile he would just scrunch up his nose like that's what he was supposed to do... too funny!

Yes, he's telling the truth! Blake is going to be a big brother at the end of June. Hooray!!!

Blake enjoyed helping me with the laundry today.... well maybe he just enjoyed pulling everything out and throwing it on the floor for me to pick up later!

happy halloween!

It's Blake's first Halloween and I must say he is the cutest frog we've ever seen!

Blake enjoyed going to a Halloween carnival with his cousins Ellie (rabbit) and Hannah (lion).

new discoveries!

Blake has been standing up for a little over a week now. It seems so easy for him now and he loves the new things he is able to find! This morning I caught him in his bedroom pulling everything (and I mean Everything) off of his toy shelf!

so easily entertained!

I took this video a few days before Blake got sick. It's funny how easily he can be entertained by the simplest things! The video is only 2 minutes- but he played this little game for a little over 30 minutes one afternoon.
As far as how Blake is doing now, he is feeling much better but still a little under the weather. Hopefully a much better day in store for tomorrow! =)

emergency room...

Sorry- No pictures today.... just an update. Blake did get one thing from his mother and that one thing is croup. Croup develops after a simple cold or flu and can be very scary as it really limits your ability to breathe. After an exhausting night and hard morning we felt it was time to get him to the doctor because his 'croup attacks' were getting more frequent and harder for him to overcome. The ER doctor told us it was a very good thing that we did...
So, long story short- after 3 hours at the hospital, a shot, 2 respiratory treatments, and a prescription- I am happy to say that Blake is sleeping soundly in his dad's arms right now. We are all worn out but so thankful that Blake is breathing peacefully and showing signs of improvement!!

brent and blake

Blake has a new buddy!

We enjoyed a visit from Brent this weekend. Brent has been in Texas the last couple years but has recently moved back to Kansas... it's great having him a bit closer for weekend visits like this!

a wonderful birthday!

Thursday was my birthday, and it was such a wonderful day! It began with breakfast in bed, a trip to the park with Blake, and ended with a date night... out to eat and miniature golf. Let's not forget to mention that I beat Nolan by 7 strokes! =)

Can't get much better than that? Wrong!! This morning I woke up to Nolan saying, "Guess what? I'm not going to work today!" Nolan surprised me and took today off of work. We spent the day at Backbone State Park. The weather was perfect and all three of us had a great time! What a wonderful 24th birthday!!!!

climbing, climbing, climbing.....

Well, we had to lower the mattress in his crib the other day.... because this is what he does when we lay him down for bed!

Here he climbed up to play with the DVD player.....

and it's official- as of today he is getting up on his feet!

Fun at the Park

I took Blake to the park yesterday and he LOVED the swings! He loved it so much that once Nolan got home from work, we decided to ride our bikes to the park again last night. This picture doesn't look like he's having that much fun, but he loved it and even went down the slide a few times with dad. We'll definitely spend a lot more time at the park now that the weather is starting to cool down a little!

Kansas City

We spent some time on Friday at the Kansas City Zoo!

Blake at the zoo! And... why is Blake only wearing a diaper?! Well, let's just say he had a blow out of epic proportions while looking at the koalas!

Blake's first time to Kauffman Stadium... first of MANY! This is a George Brett statue outside of the stadium.

Blake's first Royals press conference!

ready to go camping!

Here's Blake with his new tent (which will probably be put away for a future birthday present!) He is 5 months old now and changing SO much. He's constantly on all fours and I'm sure will be taking off any week.

two new videos

I posted two videos today. The first shows just how much Blake moves, his legs are constantly going! At the end of the video he goes up on all fours twice!! We were quite impressed- pretty good for 4 1/2 months!
The second video is just of Blake talking. He sure likes to hear his own voice! His personality is showing more and more everyday. What a fun little boy you are Blake!

blake on the couch

Sorry it's been a while since our last Blake update. I took this video of him today. He is really starting to talk A LOT more, especially when we are in the car. He doesn't talk much in this video but I'll try to capture that sometime. I also need to capture a video of him rolling over. At his last appointment he weighed 17 lbs 6 ounces... still in the 95th percentile. =)

Tuesday, May 15, 2007

We enjoyed a trip to Branson with extended family and Blake experienced his first time in a pool. He wasn't sure what to think at first but ended up loving it!

He's growing so fast!

wedding weekend

I was in my friend Ashleigh's wedding this weekend and thought it would be a good time to take a family picture... Blake thought it was a good time to blow some bubbles with his lips! I guess we'll have to try to get a better family picture another day! =)

This is for Aunt Dana....

On our last trip to Kansas, Aunt Dana taught us this little game and Blake loves it!

You're such a Big Boy Blake!

Grandma Farwell took this picture while they were visiting us last weekend. Isn't he getting big? He had his 2 month doctor's appointment last week and weighs almost 14 pounds! (that's in the 95th percentile!!!)

one of blake's favorite things is to lay on dad's chest and hold his head up for as long as he can to look around the room

smiles for dad

big smiles....

Blake will be 6 weeks old on Sunday! He is starting to smile a lot more and it just melts our hearts. Grandpa Glace got a few smiles from Blake last weekend on a visit to Grandma and Grandpa's house. I think they were talking about all the fun they are going to have getting dirty in Grandpa's sandbox! =)
