Dexter Ian: Three Months Old

DexMonth3Dexter Ian is three months old today. His favorite things are kicking his legs furiously when he should be sleeping, incessantly babbling to Dad about his day when he should be sleeping, and being totally freaking exhausted but resisting sleep anyway.

Dexter Ian: One Month Old

DexMonth1Dexter Ian is one month old today. He still hates diaper changes, but has changed his tune and now loves baths. His other favorite things are eating (so much eating), having his little feet tucked in and staring at the map of the world we have on our wall. (Seriously- if he turns out to be weirdly good at geography we’ll know exactly why.)

Dex is a first class Mother’s Day gift, I’ll tell you that for free. Happy day!
