Henry's growing resume...

What a big week for baby Henry. Determined to have the most impressive baby resume in the neighborhood, he's added several things to his skill set~

Just 2 days after rolling from front to back, he managed to roll from back to front!

He's become an adorable pro at tummy time.

He's decided to take on the role of being the neighborhood baby geek. Appropriate considering his paternal genetics. (Both boys are wearing Star Trek shirts for you non-geeks)

He's put in a few hours of grueling playtime in the exersaucer he borrowed from his cousins. He not only played with the toys but also gave them a taste test.

He's practiced his sitting skills. His Mama might have been encouraging this just a little bit. What can I say? You can get MUCH better pictures of a sitting baby! I'm surprised, however, that the massive string of drool coming from his mouth didn't throw him completely off balance!

He's been experimenting with his hair styles. This was the new look for the week.

The biggest accomplishment that baby Henry had this week I don't have a picture of. Know why? Because it's hard to capture a photo of the evasive baby phenomenon known as "SLEEPING ALL NIGHT". That's right!! On Wednesday night we put Henry to bed at 9pm and he didn't wake up until 6:30am. Amazing. I did exactly what my mother told me I would do. I woke up at 6am, thought "wow, it seems like he's been asleep for a long time", looked at my clock, and raced in to quietly lean over his crib and check for breathing! And of course, he was just fine. Admittedly he only did it the one night, but all the other nights this week he's slept his usual 10 hours, waking only once to eat. I realize that this newly found sleeping pattern may fall to pieces at the first sign of teething or change of wind direction, but believe me, I'm enjoying it while it lasts!

Only 8 more days left in February. It's hard to believe the month is nearly gone already. This spring chicken is NOT complaining, trust me. Spring is my favorite season and it can never get here fast enough to suit me. I have to admit, however, that Mister February has taken it easy on us the last week or so. Weather in the high 50s-60s? I'll take that over snow any day! I've been doing all of my runs outside this week. It's so much harder on a physical level than treadmill running, but SO much more enjoyable- even with those spiteful hills. I feel like I'm getting stronger with each run. We've also gotten out for walks every time we've gotten a chance this week. Sunshine is good for the soul. Especially when you're wearing a cute baby.

Thanks for stopping by and soak in this sunshine!
