10 Weeks and Counting!

It is amazing to see the changes in Kyle over only 10 weeks time. For starters, he is now 15 lbs and 2 feet long!! I am finally going to develop that upper body strength that I never had :). Just in the last week he also accomplished 2 major feats - rolling over and sleeping through the night. The rolling just means we have to watch him like a hawk. But the sleep is like heaven! Ask Jeff, I am a new woman with 5+ hours of continuous sleep!

On top of all the great milestones he is hitting, Kyle also took his first plane trip of many. He and I flew to visit MaMa and Grandpa Szabo. We were lucky that the seat was empty next to us on the way there, so Kyle could use his carseat. As you can tell from the picture, he didn't mind the flight too much. He was fantastic the whole way there and back, actually! On the way home, he had to sit with me because the flight was full. We did well, but holding a 24 inch baby in a airline seat is a challenge.

Kyle got to meet so many people on his trip... Great Grandma Miller, Aunt Denise and Uncle John, all of Mommy and Daddy's old neighbors, MaMa's friends, and of course that puppy, Rider! Rider is Aunt Denise and Uncle John's new golden retriever. He really liked Kyle's socks - so much that he nipped them right off his toes! To top off the trip, he had his first professional photo shoot with his cousins, Kelaen and Olivia.

Now for his next trick, Kyle is determined to have that thumb. If only those darn fingers would let go of it, he could get it into his mouth! In the meantime, we will have to live with the fairy that appears nightly to pop the pacifier back in his mouth when he wakes up and realizes it is gone. Hopefully, we will be reporting success on that next time!!
