Somehow I've crossed over to what many are probably calling "the bad place" where I've managed to take so many pictures of my little boy that I'm making new posts EVERY DAY. lol. I know David is like "seriously?" when I break out the camera again...but then he is always happy about the results. He's just as much of a sucker as I am for a little boy with blue-grey eyes and a double chin. :) So here we are again...at home after church...the sun was out...the breeze was blowing...the baby was smiling...what else could we do?

That's right! Our little Jet-Man is four months old today! We go in Tuesday for his 4 month check-up so we'll let you know the stats on just how BIG our little guy is in few days. Until then lets take a look at just one month ago...
I think he looks older! :) Something about his face and maybe his hair loss. lol. He's definitely more stable on the bottom step now (our favorite picture taking spot when we're on our own) Of course mommy is holding on to him for dear life. lol. But he's beginning to THINK he can sit up all on his own. It's very funny how he tries to wiggle away from me now. And he's doing all kinds of new tricks! Of course..he's always been good at my favorite trick... looking adorable. :)
We love you Jet. ~ Mommy and Daddy

I have been noticing babies push up to stand on their parents laps forever. It always looks like a very funny/awkward balancing act that is a given prelude to pulling up on coffee tables and couches and getting into things babies shouldn't. :) And in all honesty I didn't dream to see my little Jet do this. We always hoped he would walk and are given hope that he will - but it still took me by surprise to feel him push against my lap. It was right after bath time and I was holding him on my shoulder - his feet on my lap- when I felt him push up! I held him out in front of me to see if he would do it again and he did! Over and over! I called to David who came running and tried to video tape it but in his excitement he held the camera sideways. lol. So needless to say that will be one home movie we get nauseous watching. But here we are a few days later and Jet is still attempting his latest act that makes his mommy squeal. :) He is very wobbly of course and no where near standing for real but he is definitely pushing up on our laps and giving a little upward thrust. This is amazing when we think of how it was very possible for Jet not to have any leg movement and now he is doing this!
This is Jet's imitation of Bambi trying to learn to stand up and attempt a few words. I think he's trying to say "bird". :) It looks like his Aunt Kelly is lifting him up and down but Jet is controlling the quick up movements. Go buddy!

That's what Jet's new favorite companion might say if he could talk. :) But he's not so much verbal as he is cuddley, comfy, cozy. Who am I referring to? Jet's tiger/blanket "Aubie." He loves it! He snuggles him and snacks on him. lol. Aubie is by far Jet's favorite thing to put in his mouth - besides his own fist. So here are some pics of the good buddies.
I think they're the next Calvin and Hobbs. :)
Aubie is good to go! You can take this tiger with you anywhere!
He's the ideal carseat companion.
He will always cuddle with you. As you fall asleep in the car...
...right into your crib for a nap.

Here are some cute videos of Jet in action. :)
I love how smiley he is when he first wakes up from a nap. So sweet.
He is enjoying new things all the time. I'm always pleasantly surprised when he is okay being on his back. He hated it so much at first but is very cool with it more a more each day. He is still a social butterfly though and wants to be with people and held...so these independent really are a matter of minutes. :)

So this weekend Jet took us on a road trip to visit Grandmother and Grandfather at the condo. :) It wasn't too long of a drive -but with Jet's recent aversion to his carseat we were a little apprehensive. Once again though Jet proved us too worrisome as he did FABULOUSLY in the car. He slept almost the whole way both there and back and was perfectly precious the whole weekend. We stepped outside for some pictures - as you can see the glare got to Jet as his eyes are closed. :) But he's happy with the pictures anyway and told me I could post them.
Jet sends out a "Happy Grandparents Day" to Grandmother, Grandfather, Nina and Papi...and a special one to his "greats" - Geemomma, Geedaddy, Mema and Papa. Much love!

You may ask...
So what do baby Jet and his Mommy do all day?
Watch Good Morning America...
Stare at the baby in the brightly colored square...
Practice our whistling for upcoming Friday night football games...
And last but not least...go out for drinks...:)
Mommy needs this time as much as baby does. :) We were both in need of something delicious after a morning of errands. I must admit to prefer my frozen mocha from Panera Bread Company (I'm just saying...if you like chocolate you have to try it!) to Jet's treat...but to each his own. :)
Warning: Bottles may cause drowsiness.
You should not operate heavy machinery after having one.
