On the Road Again...

Tyson is 4 months old now and doing new things everyday. He smiles more now than ever, reaches out to touch/slap your face, drools nonstop and sleeps about 5 0r 6 hours at a time. I attribute the later to him finally being able to sleep on his stomach.

He has a checkup on Wednesday and we can't wait to see how much he's weighing in at. Lifting him in that carseat is no joke though. He's still exclusively on breastmilk, but I would imagine he'll be on cereal sometime this month. I'm not looking forward to changing those diapers...LOL!

Tyson finally had a chance to meet his auntie Mela (Nick's sister). We made a trip to Knoxville for a couple days to visit her. I'm sure he was just as excited to see her as she was to see him.

Now, I had heard that you have to practically pack the whole house when taking a baby on the road, but I totally underestimated it. I'm secretly glad Nick got the Tahoe because there is no way all our stuff would fit in the Malibu or the Kia for that matter. But, shhhh...don't tell him I said that. Tyson seemed to adjust nicely to sleeping in the playpen; once again, attributing that to sleeping on his stomach. I believe he'll like traveling and hotel stays just as much as his mommy.


  1. He's soooooooooooooooooo handsome! I need to see him before he's a teenager! When can we get together????

  2. Glad he's traveling well! Paula was the best traveler until about 15 months. Now it's awful! We actually went to a hotel last weekend and had to cut our stay by one night and drive back in the night because she would NOT sleep at the hotel. She's a creature of habit I suppose. Enjoy the traveling now while its easy! If you want to fly somewhere, now's the time before he's mobile!

  3. Isn't it amazing how much STUFF little people need when traveling? Amazing! Your baby boy is a DOLL BABY—too beautiful.
