Bathing Suits and Bumbos

Hazel is 10 weeks old now. She is drinking about 7 ounces at a time, is sleeping through the night, smiling and giggling at us, rolling from back to side, loves to hear mommy and daddy's voices, and is holding her head up so well that we tried out the Bumbo seat this past weekend. She could do it, but it scared her, so we will wait a few more weeks before we try again.



Just like when Gus was a baby, her chubby legs were hard to get in and out of the teeny tiny leg slots.



Here is Gus in the same seat when he was 11 weeks old. I think he and Hazel look very much alike in these pictures. Sometimes I think she looks like me, sometimes like Josh, and then I see her pictures and she look so much like Gus. I guess only time will tell...


Here is Gus again... 11 weeks old...



And here he is at 109 weeks old (25 months old)!


Hazel wasn't so sure about this...



It is rare that I get many photos of him without his glasses, but as you can see, they are close by. He is so cute with them. When he wants to take them off for a few minutes, be usually folds them up before he sets them down- so responsible.


He loves this tee ball set! We like it too, as it is not the traditional setup for tee ball so it helps him get even more accustomed to the ball being tossed at him. We work hard with him on hand-eye coordination skills, as depth perception is one area where he has some vision loss.




After church on Sunday.



Hazel slept all the way to church, during church, on the way home from church, and for awhile at home afterward. Did I already mention that she is just an amazing baby?



Yesterday afternoon Gus, Hazel and I ventured over to my friend Lindsey's house in Overland Park. She has a pool and has wanted Gus to swim in it for awhile. Hazel got to wear her new bikini and even hung out in the water a little.




Chillin' in the shade.





Lindsey and Gus. She is about 18 weeks pregnant with her own little boy!






It scared me to death, but Gus really wanted to be alone much of the time. He likes to be independent, so we had to keep a really close eye on him. He will just jump in the water from the edge without warning! He is such a little fish.

I can't wait to see the kiddos this weekend (and you guys:). You're right, Hazel looks so much like Gus in the bumbo seat! His eye looks so much better already- he is so cute in his little glasses and that preppy outfit. See you this weekend!

Ava had the same problem with the Bumbo and chubby legs. Oh well! Love those chubby babies! I love Gus' little outfit for church on Sunday! Hazel looks so cute in that zebra bikini!
