Momma & Baby

Obviously, I do not like posting pictures of myself on this blog. Although Porter has been the greatest blessing I have ever received, I would not consider the weight that I have gained from carrying him as favorably. However, since my family and friends have been giving me such a hard time about the lack of "Momma photos", I will relent. Here's Porter and I sitting in our backyard:

Sticking Those Lips Out

Porter loves to play in his barnyard chair, and he also loves to stick his lips out! Check out the video below:

Can you stick your lips out one more time?

Porter's Tuesday

Here's a quick recap of Porter's Tuesday.  

Flying with Daddy!

Practicing my ornery look!

Taking time to look at the flowers.

Cedar Point

Every year, the employees of Smucker's receive free tickets to Cedar Point for themselves and their families. Although Porter is only three months old, we thought it would be fun to make this our first weekend trip as a family!

We had a great time! We stayed two nights up in Sandusky. Although we were only able to take Porter on the Ferris Wheel, our day at Cedar Point was awesome! Both Brian and I have been to Cedar Point many, many times, but there was something really exciting about taking Porter there for the first time.

No day could be complete without winning Porter a green monkey. The obsession continues!

Also, we walked around the Cedar Point marina. Seeing the boats just reminded us how much we love the water... and how much we want a boat!

Porter rode a good portion of the time in his stroller while at Cedar Point. It looks like he had a pretty good time though!  Check out the slideshow below:

Happy Father's Day!

Hi, Daddy!

Happy Father's Day! Since this is our first Father's Day together, I made you a special presentation... Momma might have helped a little! Here's a look back at all the good times we have had together:

High Chair

Porter has one more month until he is allowed to eat rice cereal and stage 1 baby food. However, that doesn't stop us from putting him in his high chair!

I think you can see his little ornery streak in this picture:

Look Ma, I Have Hands!

Porter has recently realized that he has hands, and that they provide him hours of entertainment!

His poor toys are now being shaken, thrown, and occasionally chewed on, but he couldn't be happier!

Goo Baby

Porter is now 12 weeks old, and for the last week now, he has been sleeping through the night.

Although he gets up pretty early in the morning, I am so happy that the 2AM feedings are a thing of the past.

Recently, Porter learned how to make the motor boat sound. It is just hilarious! He does it all the time and keeps Brian and I laughing for hours. Also, we just love hearing him coo (actually, it sounds more like a goo). It is just so precious!

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Dear Daddy,

Today is a very special day! It's your 30th birthday!

I'm only 11 weeks old so 30 years seems like quite an accomplishment. Way to go, Daddy!

Since today is your birthday, you should have lots of fun! Here's me showing you how to do that:

Just throw your arms up in the air and wave them... I think there's more to this expression, but I haven't learned it yet.

I love you so much, Daddy! I tried to show you how much I love you by spreading my arms really far apart, but Momma had trouble getting both of my arms in the picture. (Just between you and me, for how ofter she uses that thing, you would think she would be a little better at zooming in and out!)

You're the best dad a little guy like me could ever hope for. Here's wishing you the greatest birthday you have ever had!

Love Always,
Porter (you know, Bubby)
