Summertime Slacking

So I've been a little slow with the updates lately, but there hasn't been a lot going on. Alan is growing like a weed. Everyone said that the time flies, but this is crazy! He is over 14lbs now, but it feels like 40. He's found his hands and feet, and loves to stare at them. While he knows how to roll over, he doesn't like to perform on demand. He's a lot like his dad... stubborn. He can also reach out and grab things, and pull them to his mouth.

He sleeps a lot less during the day now, but he does pretty well at night. We still don't have him sleeping in his own bed, but there will be plenty of time for that later. For now I'm trying to enjoy this stage while it lasts.
We FINALLY got to meet beautiful baby Avery. He is of course perfect, and looks like a perfect mix of Spencer and Alex. He is big by newborn standards, but compared to what I see everyday, he looks so tiny! He's also a really chill baby, and he hardly cried at all when we were there. I'm sure that he will be as smart and precious as Alex.

Fathers day is coming up soon, and Alan and I are ready. We've had daddys gifts for weeks. We're going to Grandma Pennys for lunch and swimming, then to spend dinner with Grandpa. It will hopefully be a fun and special day.

Alan's Baptism

On Sunday, May 24th, Alan was baptized at Resurrection Lutheran Church in Scottsdale. It was a really pretty service, and it was performed by Pastor Dick, who is a very quirky but lovable old man who adores Alan. After church, everyone came back to the house for lunch and hanging out. It was almost perfect, except we missed the Lindstroms, who had a pretty good excuse. Baby Avery had just arrived, and wasn't ready for his debut just yet. We can't wait to meet the new addition, and then new baby Jones-Lacey this winter!
