The new Ansel mobile

We got a new car this past week (thankgoodness for tax returns!) It's a 2002 Mazda Protege. My old car was all right around town, but not much past that.

Ansel got his first invitation to a birthday party! Ethan, who just turned a year old, loved his new friend!

While likely several months away from any teeth, Ansel begins to show first stages of teething! Biting down and drooling have become new daily activities.

Blessing day

Ansel was blessed at church this past Sunday! It was a great day that we were able to share with lots of friends and family. Here's a few pictures of his big day.

Ansel got to visit with Amy, his NICU respiratory therapist! He must have been glad to see her because he sure gave her a lot of smiles.

Pictured out!

Cousin Lindsey and Ansel meet again! Lindsey was born a few weeks before Ansel.

1st trip to church!

Yesterday was Ansel's first trip to church. He looked pretty cute in his little outfit (which we had to roll up the sleeves and pant legs to make it fit.) He did pretty well.... no huge outbursts this week atleast, although I imagine there'll be a few to come! He's now about 9 1/2 pounds and 22 1/2 inches long. We're enjoying the smiling and talking and even got his first excited squeal today.. which seemed to catch him off guard. He jumped and seemed a little surprised at the sound which he'd just made.
Exciting news of last week: my incision FINALLY closed up. It's nice not having to rip of and retape myself everyday! I'm left with a crater of a scar, but thankgoodness it is a scar now instead of the never-ending wound!
