Pictures Galore

I was informed that I have been lacking in the pictures category, so I thought I would do a post of nothing but pictures. Hopefully later this week I'll get a chance to update more on what is going on in our lives. For now, enjoy the pictures.

We got Alex's highchaire out for him so he can get used to sitting in it while we're eating dinner. He'll be ready for food before we know it. He seemed to like it and it kept his toys closer to him.

This is Alex's favorite thing to do while getting his diaper changed. He received this Alphabet feltboard from Great Aunt Pam and Uncle Geof. He loves it.

Getting him ready for our open house party. Kent likes to put his shoes on him. I have to agree they make him look even cuter. (Can you tell he found his toes?)

These next few pictures are from our open house party. We ended up having about 30 friends come for the night. It was fun to celebrate the fact that we are finally settled in our new condo. Looking around it made us feel like this is home now. We're so thankful for our friends in Chicago and beyond.

This was right after Alex got his shoes. Pretty cute, huh?

One of Alex's new favorite toys is his Baby Einstein exersaucer. He has finally figured out how everything on it works, although you'd never know it from this picture.

We have finally been able to stop swaddling him at night and for naps. It was a little rough at first, but I think we have finally fallen into a rhythm. He likes his teddy bear too.

So, after our last post you were probably wondering if we were able to get any sleep. This picture was actually taken right after I posted. Apparently we can see here who rules the house right now! Sleeping is going better. He is still waking up once at night, but is getting better at soothing himself back to sleep.

Kent & Alex. Notice the orange shoes. He is ready for ILLINI season.
