Bonfire

On Saturday night we enjoyed a bonfire on the beach in San Francisco with some of our friends.
Despite the cold wind, and getting soaked from the mist blowing off the ocean; we had a really fun time eating our tinfoil dinners and making s'mores! :)





















Believe it or not, there is a little boy under there. Luke was so tired that he just sat down, covered his head to protect himself from the mist, and quietly fell asleep.

















If only Chance would fall asleep that easily! When he's not in his crib, he fights falling asleep much more. We have to put him in his car seat and bounce him for awhile. Which is what EJ was doing in this picture.

March Madness

I think Chance is just as interested in the Basketball game as Eric is!! :)

Swingin at the Park


Chance wasn't too sure about the idea at first, but after a minute or two he calmed right down and seemed to enjoy swinging.




In fact, I thought he was going to take a little nap in the swing because he looked so comfortable.

Walking

Out walking around the apartment complex with Lauren, and her two girls, Ella and Kayla. Ella just loves Chance and she loves pushing strollers, so, of course she had to be the one to push him. We let Ella take the lead and we had a good time following her around.

Rice Cereal

For the past week or so I started feeding Chance a bottle with Rice Cereal added. It has done wonders for his sleeping habits. Almost immediately Chance went from sleeping 8-9 hours a night to 10 or 11 hours! Yay! The only problem is that he now spits up more. Boo. So, now the question is, do I want more sleep or more spit up...?
I really enjoy feeding him his bottle. He gets so excited and his little hands are constantly trying to hold on to it. I think he's getting the hang of it and will soon be holding his bottle on his own! :)

The Walker

Moving on to the latest toy... the Walker!
A couple of weeks ago, I noticed Chance really straining to sit up. (Either that or he was just doing crunches for excercise.) His feet barely touch the ground when I sit him in it, but even though he's can't actually walk in it, he likes being able to sit up.
Hard at work moving the rings from one side to the other.



After a little while Chance started making the signals that let us know he is sleepy. My favorite is when he starts rubbing his eyes, it is so cute. He's not very accurate yet, so it is really funny to watch.

Sleeping

Aren't sleeping babies just the sweetest things!? After I put Chance down for a nap, I can't help but to sneak back in a few minutes later, just to look at him. At bed time, both EJ and I will sneak back in and stand at the crib admiring our little guy. We also find ourselves laughing a lot at the different poses he makes.
Chance has always entertained us with his sleeping positions. We have never been able to swaddle him because he is too adamant that his hands are free!
So, here we have his charging pose.






Next comes the "muscle man" pose



And this last one is my favorite. It could either be "raise your hands if you're sure" or "don't shoot!"
