Sorry I haven't posted in a week! Here are the updates on our little guy...
He had his first Thanksgiving at my parents house! He was very good and let his mommy and daddy eat the yummy dinner and waited patiently for his turn. :P
The day after Thanksgiving, we went up to Park City to hang out with Josh's family at the condo they were staying at. Because of sleeping situations, I ended up feeding Hunter in the middle of the night in one of the bathrooms! It wasn't too bad, just interesting... and he thought it was interesting as well! He kept looking around, probably thinking, "Uh, mom, why are you feeding me in here???" We had a great time though.
When we got home yesterday from Park City, he decided that he only wanted to sleep for about an hour... in a 10 hour time frame... and only in like 15 minute intervals. Me and Josh tried everything to get him to go to sleep (the swing, the bouncer, a car ride, etc) and we ended up just putting him in our bed with us to sleep. Not the greatest of habits to start but it was the only thing that would work... and he ended up sleeping for 6 hours that night!
Yesterday was Josh's birthday and we went out to eat at Texas Roadhouse. It was very yummy and Hunter ended up sleeping through all of dinner! He made a few sad faces like he was going to cry during dinner but he never made a peep! He is so good! :) The waitress kept saying how cute he was every time she walked by and I don't blame her! Josh thought that maybe she was just trying to get a better tip, and that may have been some of it, but you can never resist a sleeping baby as cute as Hunter! :D
Hunter gave Josh his first birthday present. He gave him a Jazz beanie to keep his naked head warm in the winter. Hunter thought it was very good looking, so he wanted his daddy to have it... :P
And it looks like Hunter is ready to sleep through the night! Two nights ago, he slept from 10 PM until 5:30 AM! WOW! I can't complain about that!
We had a rough night the other night, where he woke up almost every 2 hours and gave me only 3 1/2 hours of sleep, but other than that, he has been pretty good. I guess he knows that I'm back at work now, so he knows that mommy needs her sleep to get through the day! :P He is so considerate!
I had to go back to work yesterday. I gave myself an hour and a half to get both me and Hunter ready and it wasn't nearly enough time - I ended up being 45 minutes late for work! When I got to my mom's house to pick Hunter up after work, he wouldn't even look at me. I think he was mad that I left him for so long... but I definitely missed hanging out with him all day.
He kept fussing after we got home, even after he had a clean bum and was fed and we figured out that he just wanted me to hold him. That made me feel pretty good that he missed me too! :D
And last night, he ended up sleeping through the night! Hopefully that will keep happening but it may have just been because he had such a weird day... I'll keep you posted on that! :P
Little Hunter has a cold! He's all congested and coughs... it is so sad. He's been sick for a couple of days now, so I took him to the doctor today and they pretty much said that there was nothing they could do, so just to let it run its course and keep an eye out for more serious symptoms. I figured as much but they said that they wanted to see him, so I took him...
On the more positive side, he is still a pretty happy baby and smiles a lot! Also, he weighs about 9 pounds now! Getting big! :)
This picture is actually kinda old but I thought I would post it anyway... We set up a timer on my camera and took a little family picture to document Hunter's first day at church (which was on October 19th). He was such a good boy - he slept through the whole thing!
Here are some pictures from Hunter's first Halloween. We got together with his cousins on my side and took their pictures in their costumes. We set up some "props" in my basement and tried to create a professional Halloween photo... I think we did pretty well with the setup but we couldn't get the kids to look at us all at the same time. So, this picture is the best I got... and little Hunter just slept through the whole thing. :P
I added a slideshow to the right that includes my favorite pictures of Hunter... so far. I have to say that I LOVE my camera phone because if he is doing something extra cute, I always have my phone close by to snap a picture! Gotta love technology! :)
