Our Boy is Growing Up!

Will passed the one month mark this past Monday and, not to sound cliche, but time really has flown by. He's doing many of the normal one-month baby things like smiling, beginning to "coo," focusing on faces/objects and picking up his head for longer periods of time. If you have not seen or met Will in person, let me tell you that this is no small baby. He has actually gained about a pound per week since our last doctor's visit. At today's one-month check-up he weighed 12 pounds, 6 ounces! We were informed that this is the average weight of a two-month old. Our boy is already topping the charts!

Baby’s First Christmas

Having a newborn on Christmas is definitely a unique experience. First of all, you get so many more gifts and Christmas cards than you normally would. Second, everyone gives you lots of smiles, hugs and kisses, even the grumpy relatives. Third, it makes Christmas shopping a whole new experience with many difficult obstacles to overcome such as only having a one-hour window of time to do five hours of shopping or attempting to purchase all gifts at just one store so you don't have to put baby back in the car, refold the stroller, drive to a different store, park, unfold the stroller and put baby in the carriage again (you get the picture).

Amos Family Christmas

Shortly before Christmas, we all went over to my dad's side of the family to celebrate Amos Family Christmas. We didn't get a lot of photos, sadly, but we did manage to get two great ones.

Here is Will with my cousin Brad.

Little Man’s Photo Shoot

Our great friend Karlos, who's a magician with a camera, recently volunteered to take some professional photos of Will for use in our upcoming Christmas card / birth announcement mailings. Here are a few of our favorite photos from the huge collection he gave to us:

Will Meets Amelia LeBlanc

Our great friends Scarlette and Fred LeBlanc brought their baby girl Amelia over to meet Will, and they hit it off! Amelia was sleepy during the photoshoot, but they made a cute couple nonetheless.

Amazing Friends

Throughout the pregnancy, I've been blessed to have such great friends around; supporting me, encouraging me and genuinely listening to whatever new pregnancy issue is on my mind at any given moment. Recently, though, I've been overwhelmed with their kindness towards me in a seemingly undeserved kind of way. As my friend Katrine put it, "everyone is really excited about Baby Will, but you're still special and important, too."

The Push Present

As time has passed during this pregnancy, the topics of conversation with our doctor have changed from things like lists of foods to avoid to labor and delivery procedures. During one of our last appointments, I felt the need to voice my concerns again (for what is probably the fifth time) about possibly having to push out a ten pound baby, if this baby that I am currently baking stays on track and goes a week late. Normally, my doctor laughs and explains how women's bodies were made for this and it wouldn't be the first time a woman has given birth to a big baby. On this occasion, however, she stated, "well, that's why there's a push present." Marc and I quickly shot confused glances at each other to signify we hadn't heard of this "push present" before.

Baby Shower(s)

Because we live a couple of hours away from Sharon's family, we were able to enjoy two baby showers—one in Salem, MA and another in Springfield, MA. Here are a handful of photographs from each; the first four from Sharon's family and the second four from my family:

Stephanie, Rachel, Sharon, Kris, and Katrine.
