Thumb Sucking

Steven's been getting close to sucking his thumb for a while now, but mostly just sucks on his hand. Then, last night, I went in to get him up to feed him, and there he was, full on sucking his thumb. Now he's doing it all the time! I haven't decided if I want this habit to continue, although it helps him comfort himself when his pacifier falls out. I sure do think it's cute, though!

Cutie

We haven't had a lot to update the blog about recently, but earlier this week we went on a trip up to Rexburg. This would have been the perfect opportunity to take some pictures and do an update, but, we of course forgot our camera. I was so mad! It was a really fun trip, though. We stayed with our friends, Jen and Sam (and their little girl, Elizabeth) and also got to see some of our other friends that we haven't seen for a while. It was so much fun! The coolest thing was watching Elizabeth play with Steven. She kept giving him hugs and kisses and trying to hold him. It was adorable!
Besides that, things have been going really well with Steven. He's still having a pretty hard time nursing, so that's a struggle, but besides that he's amazing!! Plus, he's started sleeping for a straight six hours at night. It's amazing! He's starting to smile all the time and making cute little noises. I actually took a couple videos of him. It's nothing huge, but I thought it was cute. The shirt says it all :)

Here are a couple other pictures I took of him. We wanted to take some outside to show the crazy snow we got today (the latest measurable snow we've ever gotten, the news just said), but we ran out of time before TJ left for work. So, I just decided to take some inside. I just thought this shirt was so cute!! thanks Lyndsay :)

1 Month!!

Steven is now over 1 month old! I can't believe it! He's already grown out of his newborn clothes and is so much more alert. He still spends a lot of time sleeping, but he's usually up in between at least two of his naps and so we get to spend some time interacting then. I think he might be starting to recognize me! Maybe not, but there's at least some eye contact. He's just so adorable. I can't believe how much I love him!
So here are some pictures we took of him at 1 month, though we were a little confused exactly when that was... Since he was born on the 31st and April only has 30 days, we didn't know if he turned 1 month on the 30th or the 1st. This was something I had never considered before. Any thoughts, anyone?
We also found out that he loves hanging out on the love sac. He spent basically all day there on sunday, and, let me just say, looked really cute doing it!
This is just a random cute picture that TJ took... he thought he looked like a star :)
