Teddy is 8 weeks old and new rocker project :-)

I got the pictures in the wrong order. Haha So, here is the rocking chair we bought at a second hand store so that I have somewhere to nurse and rock Teddy in the family room. ( My main"feeding chair" is in the living room.) I made the chair pad while Teddy was napping the other day. The fabric was a piece I had been saving for a while that I bought at a quilt shop with my mom last time we went to Idaho. :-)

I will paint the chair white as soon as I get a chance. Of course, then I won't be able to use it for a little while until the paint dries. Haha :-) I think that will be a big improvement, though. The wood colour doesn't look the greatest with our other furniture.

Teddy and me after his bath. He is starting to enjoy them now. Even smiling. :-)

He enjoys taking his morning snooze in the swing.
Big brother in his new suit. Teddy has a matching one, which is still too big.

Teddy just discovered the mirror above his head in the swing. :-)He was quite fascinated.
When we took Teddy to his 6 week checkup (he was actually 7 weeks, though) we found out that he now weighs 12 1/2 pounds! Quite a chubby baby. :-) I'm glad that he is growing so well. Nathanael was always a skinny baby, so this is a new experience. Hehe I love his chubby cheeks and the rolls on his legs. :-)

He's so cute Jessica! I too, am experiencing a chubby baby the second time around. Carter is huge! It's been fun to have a baby with rolls :). Take Care - Becky Weber
