Little Boy No More…

My little boy is officially a big boy. Not just because of his new snazzy haircut,


he’s a big boy because he decided that he wanted to start using the potty on Sunday. We have started potty training our son.

On Sunday, he would tell us that he had to pee, and the would go sit on the potty and do nothing, which we expected since we just started. Today though, about half the time he asked to potty he went. SWEET.

I’m so excited that this seems to be going well for him. I’m just trying to go with his lead on this one. He doesn’t really get pressure from me on this. It has been all him. Sometimes I do catch myself asking him if he needs to potty, but he doesn’t respond really well to that. Most of the time he just runs away from me.

Wish us luck!


Helmet News

Spencer and I just got back from the helmet clinic,  and…


We are so excited.  His measurements are the best they have been yet.  When we started, his head was measuring at 21.5 cm asymmetry.  In August, when we “got it off”, it had improved to 9.5 cm.  Unfortunately, it regressed to 12.5 cm.  So, back into the helmet we went for another month and a half.  As of today, his head is… drumroll… 4.6!! We couldn’t be happier!    Yea for Spencer!!  Here are some pictures to help you see the change he’s gone through (I’ll do a graduate photo study tonight)

Another New Look

Well, this is a new look, but not for the blog this time. Spencer got his band today. Here are some pictures of my little cutie and his new headgear.

And he was so tired this is how we found him when he got home.

We start off slow with him wearing the band for an increased amount of time each day for the first week until we get to where he is wearing it 23 hours a day. This should be an adventure. The time estimates for him to be in it is 3 to 4 months (things could change as we go through the process). So, just for the summer. 🙂

Spencer’s Smile

Well, Spencer has started smiling at us. It’s hard work, but totally worth it. We have even caught it on “film.” I did a scrapbook layout for it. It is so sweet getting that beautiful little guy to smile. He’s just too cute for his own good. Granted, I’m a little biased, but I don’t care. He’s just too cute. Here’s the layout I did, so you all can share for in the cuteness that is Spencer smiling.

The Birth Story

(100th post by the way. Kind of interesting)

It all happened unexpectedly, and I’m not being cliche-ish. Every single thing about this whole experience has been unexpected, good and bad. On Wednesday, November 5th, 2008 at 4:45am, I awoke to Jessica saying words not unlike “ADAM!!! Wake up!”. Naturally, I did because I’d been hoping for those words every day for the past week. She was a little excited because her water had broken (“ruptured” as the medical folk say). She had gotten up to go to the bathroom, felt a gushing sensation, and the rest you can guess. After we came to the realization we were going to have a baby that day, my next words, as you can expect, were “Want to go back to bed?”
