Visit to NJ - Meeting a new friend

So for the long Memorial Day weekend we traveled down to Dirty Jersey and visited with Nick, Christine and their adorable 2 year old Andrew.

As you can see in the last picture, Chase has discovered he has hands, now everything within his reach is funneled towards his mouth.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to our moms Regina and Stephanie and all our other "moms" - you know who you are! We have a whole new appreciation for what you've done and what you do. You are the best!

We had a great weekend with my college roommate Laura visiting to meet Chase. She got some hands-on experience, diapers excluded. He loved hanging out with her! Laura, Chase, and I spent Saturday afternoon in Greenwich and swear we had a celebrity sighting of Stanley Tucci. Chris and Carson played golf. Thank you, Laura, for spending the weekend with us!

On Sunday, my first Mother's Day was a treat! Chris cooked breakfast and entertained Chase so I could relax. I even took a nap! The weather was beautiful so we all took a walk. I recommend to all moms the book my boys gave me "True Mom Confessions" - based on a blog of anonymous confessions from moms about being a mom. http://www.truemomconfessionsbook.com/ Hilarious! I have a lot to learn!

Here are a few pictures of Chase on Sunday playing in the jungle.

2 Months!

Chase had his two month wellness check at the doctor last week and the stats are in!
12 lbs. 1 oz. (50th percentile)
24 in. long (75th percentile)
39cm head circumference (40th percentile) ... not including ears!
He got two vaccine shots and took them like a champ!

In the past few weeks, Chase has begun to smile more easily and even laughs a bit. He wants to talk so badly, but is just learning that he can make sounds other than cries! His focus and attention to faces is really developing. He's getting much better control of his neck and holds his head up pretty well. He has the best temperament! The kid wakes up smiling and is easy to entertain. It's often easy to figure out what's bothering him when he does get upset. His biggest problem is gas (as shown in our previous posting!) which is amusing for us, as long as we aren't the ones holding him when the hot potato rule goes into effect!

Here is a picture of him in his best "Alex P. Keaton" outfit before our visit with Aunt Michele and Uncle Ken last weekend. Can you say Reaganomics?
