What a great Memorial Day! Tom got to hang out with cousin Noah! Tom is 3 months older, it seems like a big difference now, but it sure won't in a year or so! The proud Grandmas had fun showing off their sweet "Silly Little Baseball Monkeys" This is the first in what will likely be a long string of pictures in matching outfits. I am so lucky to be entering my journey as a new mom with my special cousin Alissa :)

Green Beans Were a Hit!

To celebrate his 5-month-birthday, I decided it was a good time to try non-rice cereal solids. Dr. J. suggested green veggies, then orange, so we started with green beans. I've heard many kids aren't in to the green ones and much prefer sweet potatoes and squash. But we're off and running! Tommy ate the whole container- and this was his reaction after finishing!

Picnik Time!

Seriously, is about the most fun website ever! It's super easy to play with color and focus. I could spend all day editing Tommy pictures. Here's my latest creation: Red Flannel Baby! Miranda rocks for introducing me to this site. And it's spreading like wildfire here at A3N!

Tommy LOVES toys!

When Tommy was first born I couldn't figure out why we had all these rattles and keys and stuffed animals for him. Now I know why! He LOVES playing with his toys. He can squeeze his Baby Einstein duck and play music. He loves to put the surfing duck in his mouth. And he loves his "Taggies" toy from cousins Lorrie and Charlie he loves to shake it and pull on the tags.

Mother's Day Photo Shoot!

So all my mom wanted for Mother's Day was a picture of Tommy with his cousin Riley! This was easier said that done! We finally managed to contain almost-two-year-old Riley with her boundless energy and little Tom who can't sit up on his own yet, on a blanket. Thank goodness Riley's dad is so great with the camera! As many shutter clicks as he could fire off in a few seconds and we got a good shot! Then Riley was off again to giggle and play in the grass. Getting a good shot of the family wasn't easier, either. Tommy did just fine, but Marc and I had a hard time not squinting in the son. An adventurous and worthwhile afternoon! We'll try another Tommy/Riley photo session when Tom's a bit older!

Watch Tom Grow!

Since I'm getting started kind of late, here's a look at how Tom's grown over the past four months! He is a happy, smiley little guy.

How it all began!

Here he is: the morning after his birth, the "Guy" this blog is all about: Thomas Guy Haire! I hope to post pictures and updates frequently, but let's be real: I'll do it when I have time! Welcome and wish me luck on this new project!
