We like to call him Dr. Daddy

Henry can now call his daddy - "Dr. Daddy"!  Jason graduated with his Ph.D in Neuroscience on Friday, April 13.  I am so proud of all his hard work the past 5 years.  He is very dedicated to his career in medical research with numerous published papers, awards and now Dr. in front of his name! 

I can't tell you how happy it makes me to know that he is making a difference in the world with his research in traumatic brain injury.  He is a great role model for our son and I really hope Henry gets his intelligence.  I'm no dummy... but I'm not a brain scientist either.  

To celebrate his graduation, we had a party at our house with about 40 of our closest friends, family and Jason's colleagues.  I am kicking myself b/c I didn't pick up my camera during the party at all.  FAIL!

I knew it was a good time because when I got up the next morning there was a keg in our front hallway, solo cups strewn across our lawn (and our neighbors), about 15 lawn chairs still sitting out in the driveway (no clue who they belong too) and the garage door still open. Plus there was enough cake left over for breakfast!  :)

Ignore the disaster in the garage... it was packed with boxes for our move.  Normally we can fit my car in there.

Congrats Jason/Dr. Daddy!

A new chapter in our life...

I haven't been blogging lately because we have a lot going on.  Jason graduated with his phd in neuroscience (smarty pants) and got a job in Cincinnati... so we bought a house, I quit my job (hoping to transfer to the Cincinnati office in June), and left the city we met, married and had a baby in and moved to Northern Kentucky.  Whew... I am still tired from it all.

I am so excited about this new chapter in our lives and living close to Jason's family and our friends.  He grew up minutes from our new house.  Henry is lucky to have so many people around him that love him.  Plus, it was nice to have all those people helping us move and fix up our new house.  Not to mention we are now close to an aquarium, zoo, a major league baseball team, a pro-football team and most importantly outlets!!!!  Once I am employed again, I will be hitting them up!  :)

Of course, I couldn't have a post without a pic of my little guy. 


Henry - 4 Months (this post is a month late)

  • You like to spit and blow bubbles.  We are at the point where you need to be wearing a bib all the time to keep from soaking your shirt.
  • You love to make noises, including fake coughing.
  •  You have started to giggle and do it mostly when we put you on your changing table.  It is still your favorite place to be.

  •  You still sleep great at night... even with the time change.  On most nights I only have to get up and feed you once.  I actually really like this time with you and don't want it to stop.
Cuddling with your Aunt Yvette (aka. Maymi)
  •  You rarely cry.  If you are unhappy you just grunt.
  •  You love to watch ESPN in the morning with your dad. 
He fell asleep watching tv.
  • We watched A LOT of college basketball this month... Go Cats!!!
  •  You grab at your toys and love sitting in your the Jumperoo that Aunt Deanna gave you.  
  • You now wear 3-6 months clothes.  We still like to put you in the zipup sleepers because they are comfy and make diaper changes easy.
At Triangle Park in Lexington on St. Patty's Day.  The Cats played that day, so in Lexington there were more people wearing blue than green.
  •  At your 4 month checkup you were 25.5" tall (66%), 14 lb/4oz (34%) and 41.5cm head (27%). 
  •  Lucie got her whiskers pulled for the first time by you, but she just turned her head.  Good dog!
 You are at the most fun age... even though I have a feeling I will be saying that about every age.  Love you, my lovey!
