I can't figure out how to divide June into separate posts, and I don't want to do a GIANT post, so this month will have two photo drops with no real theme.
Swaddle baby. I was kind of hoping he would hate swaddling so I wouldn't have to wean him off of it, but he is just like Norah was. And I have a feeling he, too, will be swaddled far longer than is I want.
Doing some more scootering.
As you can see, she still has some learning to do. Notice when she turns and spits? She definitely learned that from her daddy.
Newborn smiles! (Also just like Norah as a newborn, he didn't have the best skin. It's all cleared up now, though.)
His look here just kills me. And those dimples look huge!
We got to attend cousin Skyler's baptism at the beginning of June, and Grandma and Poppa Nelson flew in for the occasion, where they met Jack for the first time.
I'm sorry to say that this is the first picture we have of our family of four. We forgot to get one of those at the hospital and then never got around to it afterwards, either.
All of the family at Skyler's baptism.
We took the obligatory "Poppa sleeping with grandchild" picture (there's one of these for just about every grandchild).
So stinkin' cute! This was her birthday present from Grandma and Poppa.
She couldn't (still can't) get enough of her baby brother. She wants to help all the time and doesn't want him to be asleep just so she can be around him.
Potty pictures because they're hilarious and I just had to.
The kiddos love their daddy time.
Haircut by the lovely Aunt Courtney. Love it!
Jack and Beck, future best cousin friends. Jack is one month old in this picture, and Beck is five months old. Yep, Jack is a giant. (And Beck is probably the happiest baby I've ever met.)
I was able to get together with one of my high school friends. She has a little girl almost exactly Norah's age, and they became instant friends - Norah now prays for her every night.
Ba ha ha ha ha! What a chunk and what a face!
I love this picture of Jack's cousins just crawling on Grandma's lap to adore him. No one can resist a new baby.
We helped my grandma and grandpa Fredrickson plant pumpkins for Halloween time. Last time we were at their house, we checked on their progress - looking much more like pumpkins now!
I absolutely love this picture. The zoo did Zoorassic Park where they had animatronic dinosaurs all around the park. You can tell from this picture that Norah was not a fan of the T-Rex at first. She flat our refused to look at it. Now, though, that's the first place she wants to go when we get there.
A rather less than willing Norah comparing herself to the gorillas.
One month old (taken two days late). I had to rush these pictures, so they didn't turn out that great.
I was stuck, and I didn't mind one bit. It makes me sad when I realize he's pretty much too big to snuggle like this now.
And two final shots of this chub for now. It doesn't fee like June was all that long ago, but I cannot believe how much he has changed since these were taken!
