Day after day I watch Steele grow bigger and bigger! I want him to stop growing and stay this size for about 6 months and then he can start growing again. Each stage is so fun and the new things he does every day gets our immediate attention.
We have been staying busy and having lots of fun together. I have a constant little side kick; however I also have a constant little side ACHE! My back has been killing me since he is 14 lbs. 13 oz.!!!! When went to his appointment the doc told me he is the size of a 5 month old! No wonder why I feel like he is growing too fast, because he is. He was almost 26 inches and almost 15 lbs! I just can't believe how big he is. I asked what percentile he is in and he replied "I can't tell you because he is entirely off the charts!" So the good news is we have an amazingly healthy boy. Bad news is my back is in for a real ordeal.
We visited the Bean Museum with my cousins Karen and Kelly. Heidi had the day off so she came too. Steele loves his little carrier! He usually falls asleep in it.
I am preparing my little sister Jill to be my baby sitter. It is perfect timing- by the time she is old enough Steele will be 2 or 3. Perfect!
She even asked to help change his diaper. What a good Aunt!
The NEW Grandparents! My Mom is still getting used to the G word but hopefully Steele will come up with something cute to call her. Brett's Mom was named Grandma Bubbles by Hallie and Brett's Dad is Panka so who knows what my parents' names are going to be.
Curious George- Also know has Steele giving the camera the "Stink Eye". He gives me the funniest look in this video. I wish I knew what he is thinking!!
So I have been attempting to get my body back into shape. I have been exercising with Brett's sisters. Running with Brett's sister Carrie, Roller blading with Hayley and yesterday we did P90X ab ripper! HOLY CRAP, I am so out of shape. Carrie kicks my butt running every time! Once we hit mile two my face is beat red and I feel like I am going to die. It is so great to go with someone who dosen't let me stop. When we are done it feels so good and it makes me want to keep it up.
