Catching Up! Month 4

Month 4 was such a blessing.  It was such a big month for Ford! He reached the major milestone of rolling over and it quickly became his favorite past time.  He is the happiest laying on a blanket, kicking his feet and rollin! Ford Man (nickname of the moment) also started smiling more, giggling and baby talking.  Baby talk is my favorite and we are getting plenty of it!  I have been told that Ford is quite a talker.   
He talks to himself.  
He talks to us.  
He talks to the babies at daycare.  
And sometimes he likes to start talking at 3:00 a.m.
Just because.  
The boy likes to talk! And we love it.

Month 3

I have a confession.  I have an empty baby book for Ford.  I have not written down a thing.  I am terrible...but I do have hundreds of pictures of our guy and this blog is just going to have to serve as my baby book for now. we go with month 3!

Ford chillin on the couch.  Livin the dream.  He is all man.

Our first walk around Mitch Park in Edmond.  

This is definitely one of my favorite pictures to date.  It is framed in my office and I look at it everyday.  One of our sweet relatives got us this awesome chair that is perfect for our big boy.

While I was on maternity leave Ford and I got to enjoy a little later bedtime than Daddy.  We enjoyed making funny faces during our late nights together.

During month 3 I went back to work...and it was not easy.  Being away from Ford literally made my stomach ache and my eyes fill with tears. I'm sure every mom that has done the same can relate.  But, each day has gotten easier.  We are getting into a routine and I think Ford actually enjoys daycare.  He is entertained by the other babies in his class and I hear that he really enjoys story time and walks outside = )  Here is a picture from the first day I went back to work.  I made it half way through the day and had to go see him on my lunch break.  This picture was also taken during the time Ford discovered his hands...

Ford and his cousin Lorelai!  Love these faces.

Ford got to spend time with some lovely ladies

My little lion cub.  

Baby BBQ!  All of our baby Beta friends got together for a very fun day.

Who doesn't love a sweater vest?  Maybe Ford...

I am looking forward to sharing month 4 with you!

Month 2

Brrrrr Baby! Ford's second month was cold! We experienced some snow, a little bit of ice and lots of cold temperature. This being said, we spent a lot of time indoors cuddling in bed, watching movies and watching baby!

Ford relaxing by a nice fire

Norma, Ford and I got into a nice routine of hanging out in bed during our mornings together. The cold temps made it hard to get out some days!

Ford doing his best "Baby Carlos"

Cannot get enough of these cheeks!

Ford got to meet his friend Harry! Harry's Dad and Michael were Betas at OU together. These are the only boys out of a bunch of baby girls our friends are having this year. This two guys are going to have to stick together!

Ford really started to enjoy playtime during month 2...

Which means we also started to enjoy playtime!

I got to help host a shower for my cousins this month. I had to include a picture of them. They are too cute!

Month 1

I had every intention of blogging,blogging and doing some more blogging while on maternity leave... But that didn't happen. This mommy gig is some serious work! Now,as Ford is in his third month, I think I have finally gotten a routine down and should be able to start catching up on everything baby on the blog.

The first month was filled with happiness and emotion as we brought our new baby boy home. Here are some of my favorite moments of Ford's first month.

The first picture is our first time alone! Michael had just left for work and it was just me and my little guy. No makeup, no sleep and some crazy hair... But man I was happy.  We are all so happy to have you here, Ford Michael Dickinson!

I can't believe he was ever this tiny!

Never get tired of seeing this

My view 

Love waking up to this!

First walk in my favorite hat

Ford's first lunch out with some of my favorite ladies

Baby got lips!

Ford and his cousin Lorelai.  Lorelai was born a month before Ford.  These two have lots of fun times ahead!
