…as I finally find time to update the blog at 2AM!

First Gould Family photo

After a bath, against white… is it red?  We’re really not sure yet… sometimes his hair looks REALLY red, and sometimes it looks flat, light-brown.  It will be interesting to see what it turns out be!

Sleepy time in the papasan chair.

The second-cousins came to visit, and Nathaniel had a blast!  He particularly enjoyed tackling Clara, who would exclaim “I am not a toy!” in return as they both giggled uncontrollably.

Shaun, Nicole, and Jude came for a visit.   We were so grateful for the dinner they brought us, and that Nicole was more than willing to hold baby Warren so we could eat together!

Baby’s first bath picture, though not officially his first.  His first bath was luke-warm and super-disliked.  Once I figured out Warren likes to be warm, I started making his baths really warm, and he started LOVING them!  I’m so grateful that problem is solved because he’s a stinky boy with all the puking he does!

Though this is an awful butt-shot of me, I couldn’t resist posting it because this is life!  I have double help with everything!  Everyone is curious around here!

IMG_2006 IMG_2008

Nathaniel’s new fireman boots!  His feet have really been growing super fast lately!

This is a “mommy-holding-squirmy-baby-shot”

IMG_2012

The hole, in all its glory!

The neighbor’s new puppy.  So glad he’s a good dog!

IMG_2018 IMG_2022

Ann and Gavin came to visit.  Nathaniel had a blast playing with Gavin.  I swear the two could pass as brothers with their blue eyes, blonde hair, and pale skin, and giant smiles!  Ever since these two were little babies, they were both so happy all the time.  Toddlerhood has its challenges, but they are great friends!  We were so thankful that Ann brought us dinner!  She much enjoyed a little newborn cuddle too, giving me a much-needed break!  Thanks Ann!

Classic “everyone-needs-mom” shot!

IMG_2029 IMG_2034

Despite the new baby, we were thrilled to get a chance to watch another bunny for a weekend.  We much enjoyed “Lucky’s” company.  He is an awesome rabbit.  If I ever get another one, I hope it’s just like Lucky… only a little cuter! (No offense, Lucky… your attitude totally makes up for it!)  Talk about a happy-go-lucky-bunny!

IMG_2036 IMG_2038

We took a trip to Shelton for an extended family gathering.  Nathaniel had a blast playing with his cousins and pig-piling on top of his grandpa.

“deep-in-thought”

IMG_2047

Probably not so appropriate to post, but I couldn’t help but find the humor in the completely innocent placement of my son’s hand, and the blissful smile on Julie’s face.  This is my dad and his new girlfriend, and I think, in reality, Nathaniel trying to push himself out of the picture.

IMG_2053

The great-grandparents meet Warren for the first time.

IMG_2057

“uh, am I in trouble?”  You gotta love the clueless expression Nathaniel has on his face, and the messy countertops that seem to come with a newborn!

IMG_2059 IMG_2061

No, this didn’t turn out bad!  But, again, the mischievous smile on Nathaniel’s face, as it appears as he’s about to jump on his brother… though he didn’t!

IMG_2063

Grandma’s first picture with Baby Warren!

IMG_2065

Big brother helping…

IMG_2067 

Sweet kisses.

IMG_2068

Priceless hugs.

IMG_2075

Priceless newborn cuddles…

IMG_2084 IMG_2082

Melissa stopped by for another visit. 

IMG_2087

Carrie provided some much needed entertainment on a day that just wasn’t going so well.  So happy to see these smiles!

 IMG_2094

Tiny fingers!

IMG_2102 IMG_2103

First smile captured by our camera!

IMG_2107 IMG_2108 IMG_2110

LOVE the mobiles!

IMG_2111 IMG_2114

Nathaniel got some new shoes!  And, though he loves to put them on, he sometimes gets it backwards!

 IMG_2115

Nathaniel’s new jammies and his new favorite hat, which he sometimes calls his “cap” thanks to Curious George!
