I Dare You…

I dare you – no!  I DOUBLE DOG DARE you to look at this photo and resist smiling.

Tate at Four Weeks

At four weeks, Tate is already smiling a ton!  I took this at the pedi's office so it isn't the best quality, but you can't beat that smile as he looks at Momma! :) 2-15-11We had his four-week well check today.  He’s big, like his brother was!  The current stats are: 

Weight: 10lbs 12.5 oz (83 percentile)

Height: 23 in (94 percentile) grown a full two inches from birth!!


We are really enjoying our laid-back little dude.

Tate's First Three Weeks

We have had a great first few weeks with our little Tate.  Surprise, surprise that there hasn’t been much time to update our blog!  Here are some photos to catch you up on our first few weeks with our new little man.

Second Week

Reid at 22 months and Tate at 10 days...




We went to the pediatrician for the big weigh in

Our first family outing was to Zilker Park.  We tried out the double stroller… IMG_1006….the big boy took a ride on the trainIMG_1008...and enjoyed the playground, while the little guy snoozed in the fresh air.



And today, on Tate’s three-week birthday, the brothers had some playtime with Papa…IMG_1097…and cuddle time with Ammy. IMG_1109

We love our sweet little Tate!IMG_1116

Tate’s Two Week Stats

Little Tater Tot did a lot of growing in his first two weeks! Here are his stats from his two week doctor appointment. (which was last week...I'm catching up... :-) )

Weight: 9lbs 5 oz (92 percentile) up a full pound from birth!!

Height: 22 in (99 percentile)

Our pediatrician took one look at his feet and hands and said, “Oh my. He’s gonna be big!” He’s a healthy, big and sweet boy!

Here’s a link if you want to see how Big Brother compared at his two-week mark.
