Macie is in there, I swear!
This was so cute. Ryan loves his Uncle Phil. Phil was outside walking Otis and Ryan stood at the window and kept saying "hi Uncle Phil".

Helps the pain when you stick both hands in your mouth at the same time. Poor baby!
We have finally realized when you wake up in the middle of the night that we just need to go in and put your binky back in your mouth and you fall right back asleep. You are so close to finding it yourself and getting it back in your mouth. This had made for some good sleeps for Mommy and Daddy and we appreciate that very much. You have really taken quite a liking to your bedtime stories and your favorite book right now is Goodnight Moon. You listen to every word I read to you and you look back and forth at the pages when I point to things, it's so cute. My favorite part is our cuddle time after we read books. You are so active now that our cuddle time gets cut short, but at night you nuzzle up to me and grab a hold of my hand and we rock until you fall asleep. It is the best thing in the world to me and I love having that time with you. Any stresses from the day are instantly gone and I can just sit there and stare at you forever.
Your cousin Joey was born on February 7th and I can't wait until you two are running around playing together. You two have a lot of similar features when I look at your newborn pictures and look at his, it amazes me. Uncle Joe and Auntie Sam let you test out Joey's Rainforest Jumparoo and you loved it. I told Grandma about it and showed her pictures and of course she jumped on the computer and ordered one up for you and your were bouncing away within days in your own. I tried to tell Grandma that you loved Joe and Sam's 42" Plasma TV too, but Grandma's too smart.....she didn't bite on that one.
I have to cherish all these moments and milestones because the come and go so fast. I know that many years from now I will become "uncool" and you won't let me rock you to sleep, or read you stories before bedtime and it makes me sad, but with that thought in mind I am able to thoroughly enjoy these precious times I have with you.
You had your first Valentine's Day this month. We made a giant heart shaped cookie that said "Love You Daddy" and Daddy really enjoyed it. He loves cookies! You got some cards and some new toys from Grandma and Grandpa that you really liked.

We tried out some green beans with Macie this week.
Eatin' some more cereal......naked this time. It was much more enjoyable for both of us when she had no clothes on to mess up!
We were able to get outside on Tuesday and go for a long walk. She loves going for walks!! She's also sitting up in the stroller like a big girl, that was a big bonus since she was able to look around at everything on our walk.

Congratulations Joe and Sam!
I can’t see Daddy’s face. (making an observation)
Where did he go? Is daddy still there? (asking a question)
I’ve played this game before, and I think he’s still there. (creating a hypothesis)
Let’s see . . . Peek-a-boo! It’s great to see Daddy again! (testing hypothesis)
I was right. Daddy can hide his face, but I know he’s still here. (evaluating the evidence)
By playing peek-a-boo, children test their ideas about things that disappear. Over time and with evidence from many games, children learn that objects still exist even when they’re hidden from view.
Along with being fun, peek-a-boo also teaches babies the concept of object permanence, which occurs somewhere between the ages of 4 and 12 months. A baby learns that even if something is out of sight, it still exists.
Finally, a baby will quickly learn to play peek-a-boo back at you, covering his face with his hands or his head with a shirt. When he reveals himself and giggles he is making a joke — you thought I was gone but here I am! Ta-dah!
