3 months

Knox is three months old and a complete busy body! If he's not moving, he's simply not happy. He loves to stand up, so we bought him a little johnny jumper and he loves it. He's figuring out what his hands and feet can do, and will spend minutes at a time staring at both.

He loves to chew on things, and his frog "thumbie" is his favorite. He loves to talk and he has quite the set of lungs. He's laughed/giggled for my dad, but unfortunately not for us yet. I'm thinking he's just saving up until it's uncontrollable laughter :)

He is absolutely our pride and joy, we just love him to pieces.

Knox and his daddy

Knox is three months old. I will post pics of him in his picture chair soon, but for cute is this?

How Gracie's been handling the new baby...

Many of you ask how Gracie is handling having a new baby around. From the get-go she has been pretty accepting. However, since Knox is getting more playful, I think the jealousy is kicking in a bit. See the progression of yesterday's events below...
She places her baby on Stephen's shoulder, just so he knows she's ready to play.
She doesn't get the desired result, so she takes matters into her own paws...

All this to say, I think she's doing just fine!!

Morning Smiles

Knox is happiest in the mornings. Stephen and I love the huge smiles and happy demeanor...we could just eat him up!

Enjoy a little piece of our heaven-

Hopefully you could ignore the sunlight coming in and tune out my obnoxious mommy voice!

Aquarium and DALLAS!!!

This past week Knox and I had fun visitors from out of town...both named Sarah! Sarah C. flew in from Belgium to visit, and Sarah F. and Dean from Houston. We loved getting to see both ladies, and sweet Dean and Knox loved chillin'. At least we think so.
We decided to hit up the Dallas World Aquarium with the kiddos. It was awesome. Knox slept the entire time, but Dean was in awe of all the new creatures and big fish. The adults enjoyed the sites, too. Too bad we forgot the cameras...iPhone pics will have to do!
Myself, Knox, Dean and Sarah F.
Minimal danger, but notice his eyes opened to be sure

Dean loved the fish

The next afternoon, Sarah C., Knox and I headed out to Southfork Ranch to catch the tour of "Dallas." Sarah had watched the series' re-runs as a kid in Scotland, so she was quite nostalgic. It was before my time here in the states, but our tour guide brought it to life for us...and insisted we take pictures all over the house. I again forgot my camera (won't make it a habit, no worries), so these are "non-iPhone user" quality, i.e. blurry.

Stephen and I took some pics for Sarah C. to have when she goes back across the pond, so I thought I'd share.

His shirt says, "Kind of a big deal." Obviously!

Happy 4th!

Cooler than it typically is at this time of year, we were able to get out and enjoy the neighborhood 4th of July parade. Knox and the girls loved it!!

Great Great Aunt Kisses

We had the priviledge of taking Knox down to see his Great-Great-Aunt Arjorie last night. He loved getting to meet her, and I think it's safe to say the feeling was mutual!!

Arjorie is a grandmother to me, so it was very special sharing our little man with her. I love her dearly, and it means a lot to have these pictures!!

Picture Chair

I said earlier that I would be taking his monthly pictures in the moses basket...that was until we went to Wisteria.. They will now be taken in this little gem :) And just for my records, he's 9-weeks in these!
