my little chunky monkey

The three most popular comments I get when people see Preston:

"What amazing eyelashes!" (he got them from his dad; I'm jealous)

"Aw, look at those cheeks"

"He certainly looks well fed"

October 15th

Tomorrow, Preston turns 13 weeks and it is also my Grampy's birthday. He would have been 85. He has been gone (but certainly not forgotten) for 4 1/2 months now. He would have loved to see Preston and become a Great Grandfather.
In my dad's words: In 84 years, he experienced a lot of good things, and appreciated them all - "Beautiful", "No Problem" for sure. And Roland gave us all kinds of good stuff that have become part of us. So, Roland lives on through us ... today, tomorrow and beyond.

look who's talking

At 12 weeks old, Preston has started to make the cutest little baby coos and gurgles. I can't get enough of them! He is also making the cutest expressions now and wiggling his eyebrows! We are so in awe of him and the changes that occur on an almost daily basis.

Preston and his buddies

Preston and Carys, who is five weeks younger than him, but already seems to asserting her power as a woman! Carys' mom is my good friend Liz, who lives on our street. It was so wonderful to have someone to go through pregnancy with, and now we are having a great time figuring out this baby thing together!

Here is Preston with some of his friends from my mom's group. He and Tucker, the baby on his left, are the only boys in the class. I love that they are sound asleep while most of the girls are crying or fussing! Ha! Men...
