Dancin' With Myself

After his bath, Justus LOVES to lay in his towel on his changing table and dance! It is the cutest thing...and when Billy Idol came up on the iPod, I had to get the camera. Unfortunately, he is somewhat mesmerized by the light on the camera and he freezes once he sees it, but I figured out that if I get behind him he usually loses sight of the little light and gets back to what he was doing.

Now the question is...who does he get these moves from?? If you have ever been lucky enough to see Travis dance, you already know the answer to this question.

Baby Babble

This one's for the grandmas who I know will watch this over and over (and over and over and over...)!

I know most parents think their kids are way smarter than they actually are, but Travis puts them all to shame. All I have to say is, "You wish, Trav...his first word will definitely be 'mama'!"

2 months + 3 shots = 1 cutie

Justus had his 2-month appointment today...which also means he had his first round of shots. He was seriously a champ. After they were done (it took a total of maybe 10 seconds to give him 3 shots in his thighs), he let out one big cry and then fell right asleep! He is doing great and seems pretty much unaffected by getting poked.

He weighs 12 lbs, 15 oz and is 24" long, and he's in the 75th percentile for his height and weight. What a chubby, long little cutie!! I wonder where he gets it?? Hmmm...chubbiness from mom, length from dad...and unfortunately, I have the baby pictures to prove it! At least he doesn't have my triple-chin yet!!

Tongue Tied

I'm pretty sure Justus discovered his tongue today. He keeps sticking it out and it is definitely keeping him (and me) entertained!!

Rollin' with the Homies

So, I went to Target yesterday (surprise!) and Trav and Justus stayed home for a little boy-time. When I came home, Trav called me over to the couch to show me Justus' new trick... he put him to sleep on his back in the middle of the couch and he had rolled himself over onto his belly all on his own! Thankfully, Trav was sitting right there or he would have rolled himself right off! He fell asleep in the position he landed in, with his arm hanging over the edge and everything. He seemed comfy and it was seriously adorable!

Aren't grandmas the best?? Kay-Kay and Justus are so cute together...this picture proves it (thanks, JJ)! I bet she won't even make him eat his Happy Meal in her garage!

Good Talk, Rust

These little conversations are my favorite part of the day!

Trick or Treat

Well, it was Justus' first Halloween and, as you can see, we spared no expense in getting him ready to celebrate the holiday! And by 'spared no expense' I mean that I was willing to part with one of his white onesies by demonstrating some serious permanent marker skills. Hey, I grew up in a trailer park...this type of thing is in my blood.

His cousin, Kiley, on the other hand, looked cute as a bug...a caterpillar, in fact! Adorable!!
