Chase at 11 weeks

Anyone that has spoken to me recently has probably heard me whining about sleep deprivation. For the last 6 weeks or so Chase has been very colicky and hasn't been letting us get much sleep, day or night, which has been taking it's toll and making me extra worried about going back to work next week. Last night however was quite the miracle...he slept for a total of 8 hours! It was seriously the best night since he was born, and although I doubt this means our troubles are magically over, it does give me hope that someday he'll be on a better schedule, and the crying can't last forever.:) Here he is bright and early this morning, happily playing after a good night's sleep. What a smile!

2 months and flying

Chase had his 2 month check up today, and those immunizations were as traumatic as I expected...just as much for me as they were for him! Before the terrible shots though we found out that he is up to 11 pounds and 24 inches. In the last week Chase has really started to make lots of fun noises, and he has little "conversations" with us all the time. Plenty of cooing and smiling and even a few giggles. This cute stage started just in time for our trip to Missouri. I was stressed out about taking him on a plane by myself, but he really did pretty good. It was still an adventure for me, especially the part where I had to change a messy diaper on my lap, but we survived. We had a great visit in Independence, and Chase was finally introduced to his cousin Aubrey, Uncle Steve, Uncle Jason, and Aunt Crystal. I think everyone had a fun time playing with him, especially Grandpa and Grandma Kent.
