height: 28 inches
weight: 19 lbs. 13 oz.
head: 18 inches
The paper from the doctor says above 97th percentile in each category and the chart shows that he is clearly above and beyond the rest. As someone said yesterday when they saw him for the first time: He is a healthy boy!

Wyatt didn't seem to mind the strange man holding him either!
And 10 points goes to Melissa for finishing the song! Yay for John Denver and the Muppets!

We are also hoping to get the truck back soon, which will be good because that means Kevin won't have drive a clutch with his broken toe/foot and I won't be without my car when he drives it instead of his. Of course with him being done with work for a few weeks, it's not really an issue any more. Oh well. We go back to the doctor Friday so we're hoping for some good news!
Wyatt continues to be fabulous! He's laughing now and I have some really precious video footage to prove it. As soon as I can find the cord, I'll get it up here for your viewing pleasure!
Oh yeah! Christmas is coming! (the goose is getting fat) 10 points to the person who can finish the song! I know my dad knows it!

Well, we drove to Walgreens and Kev waited in the car while I went in and bought 2 different types of tests. We went back home and I took a test. About 30 seconds after I set it down, it was already reading positive. Kevin asked me what it said and I told him it just hadn't been long enough so we waited another couple minutes. It was still positive, but the one line was lighter than the other. I was obviously not able to take another test at that time so we had no choice but to go to church. Needless to say, we weren't able to focus on the sermon at all that morning.
We went out for lunch for our anniversary and then went home to take another test. It too turned up positive and we spent the rest of the day going through all of those crazy, exciting emotions.
We decided to wait until Christmas to tell our families and it was a brutal 2 weeks. However, when the day finally came, it was the best thing in the world.
8 months later, we had our precious baby boy and life has been forever changed for the better!
Also, Wyatt is 4 months old today! Yay!
Now about the truck. Kevin spent a lot of time on the phone with a guy he knows that does stuff with cars and such. They are working on an affordable way to save the truck. We still don't know for sure what's going to happen, but it's all in God's hands. I will try to be brave if things don't work out, but I'm really hoping and praying for the best!

I know...things could be so much worse, and I'm still counting my blessings. However, I thought Kev's broken toe was enough for now. But alas, I was wrong.
Wednesday morning, about 30 minutes before it would've been time for Wyatt to wake up to eat, my phone rang and woke me up (luckily it was only on vibrate). It was Kevin. The truck broke down as he was getting off the interstate. So I threw on some clothes, woke the baby (I didn't mean to, but luckily he was okay with it), and went off to rescue my hubby. He called AAA (so glad we have it now) and we had to wait an hour for the tow truck to get there.
Then I took him to work. This was kind of a plus because I got to show off Wyatt to all his co-workers and my students that I taught last year. I love to show off my little man. He was so good getting passed around from stranger to stranger. No, none of the children were allowed to touch him (we're super cautious about school germs with the flu/H1N1 going around). Then we came home where I promptly gave Wyatt a bath.
So back to the truck. The place called Kevin and told him that the truck was not firing(?) on any cylinders and that it was going to cost X amount of money to take apart whatever to see how bad it was. Thursday they called to say that the truck needs a new engine. This is very sad to me because this was my first vehicle. I learned to drive in it and it's been in my life for 10 years. It's got a lot of memories and sentimental value. Unfortunately, that seems to be the only value it has.
So now we have a decision to make. Do we spend money to fix it, or do we let it go? This is very hard for me and I've said that I am not able to make the unbiased decision since I'm so attached. Please pray for us to discern from God what the wisest decision would be for our family. We don't really want to lose the truck, but even more than that, we don't want to make the wrong choice.

Wyatt with Nana, JJ, and cousin B.
My cousin N was in town and this was the first time he got to meet Wyatt. He was so excited!
Me with my grandmother and Wyatt.

And here's Wyatt's newest found love. He discovered it while we were visiting my sister when she was on bed rest. It seems to be a good way to get him to spend more time on his tummy as well!
Considering my fascination with the t.v., it was bound to happen!

So here's a little about us: My hubby, Kevin, and I got married last year on June 7, 2008 (06-07-08). No we didn't plan it that way, it just worked out to be the first date that all of the elements lined up! At least we'll remember the date though. We both wanted to have kids right away so we started trying from the get-go. On our 6 month anniversary, we found out that we were expecting. We were super excited. We waited 2 weeks to tell our families and made it an extra Christmas surprise! Fast forward 8 months and you get our precious Wyatt! He is the biggest blessing either one of us has ever experienced.
Here we are at 3 months!
