Happy Halloween!

Sullivan's first Halloween is down in the books. We started the week of by wearing a Halloween shirt everyday leading up to the big day.

Monday

Halloween Day
Look out Sheriff Sull is in town. Last night I whipped up some treats for daycare. Are these the cutest?! Gotta love Pinterest.
This evening Sullivan slipped into his trick-or-treating costumes and we hit the town. Okay not really, we just walked over to our neighbors, Don and Sandy's house. No tricks but we still got some treats for mommy and daddy and took some photos. Here's our cute little banana.

Celebrating 40 with Cali Girl in town!

I have been off work since Friday. Big things happened in the Nelson household. Michael turned 40 and Michael's sister Kelly from California came to visit us and meet Sullivan. On Friday I was SUPER busy cleaning, getting groceries, picking up birthday cake and running other errands in preparation for a big weekend. 

Kelly arrived into the Des Moines airport last Thursday night and then drove to Cedar Falls last Friday. It was great seeing Kelly. Mike and I have been off  work enjoying our time with her and Mike's parents this week. We did a lot of talking, cooking, eating, shopping and more eating. Kelly was a wonderful guest and she will be missed. Hopefully when Sullivan gets older in a couple of years we can venture out to California to visit her and her two girls. 


On Sunday we celebrated a big milestone for Michael. He turned 40! I believe all four of us were awake around midnight wishing Michael a very happy birthday. We didn't do much that day except what Michael loves best, watching football. We went to church that morning, watched football all day, presents in the afternoon, dinner including yummy taco pizza at Godfathers that night, followed by the best birthday cake. I follow this blog which is so adorable and came across a lady she uses for birthday cakes. I decided to give her a try and wasn't disappointed. The cake looked fabulous, tasted oh so yummy and was very reasonably priced. We will be using her again. 


Tuesday and Wednesday were spent shopping in Waterloo and downtown Main Street in Cedar Falls. Wish I would have taken more pictures but here's what I got. Love you Kelly and we hope you had a wonderful time with us!!

Watch Out World!

I have been long overdue for a blog post. So much has happened to. I feel our little boy is growing too fast for us to even following. About a month ago he started rolling over from his back to his tummy. It took him way to long to show mommy. He was showing off his skills to Mike and Christi, our daycare provider. 

Then he started rolling over from his tummy to his back about two and a half weeks ago. I knew it wouldn't be long and as I suspected this morning at 6:45 when Sullivan was bright eyed, bushy tailed and happy as a clam he rolled from his back to his tummy and then from his tummy to his back and back to his tummy. Did you catch that??

On top of me being the first to see this new trick I managed to catch it on video for everyone else to see. Watch out world, Sullivan is on the move. Need to baby proof asap....

3 months old

Yesterday Sullivan turned 3 months old. Where does the time go..... This boy is growing so fast it's making me sad. Here's what Sullivan is doing at 3 months old:
  • Smiling and showing off his dimples to anyone who talks to him
  • Saying "who"
  • Holding his head up really well, he loves the boppy
  • sleeping anywhere from 4 to 7 hours straight at night before needing a feeding. On average it's 4 to 5 hours. We got 7 hours on Thursday night and it was wonderful.
  • Putting his hands on the bottle when he's eating
  • and here's the big one.......ROLLING OVER!
Yes this kid is already rolling from his back to his tummy. We are hoping to catch it on video soon, but you have to remember this is a stubborn little boy so we have to be sneaky.

Bath Time

Sullivan loves his bath time! He can be hungry and cranky, full out crying, and as soon as his little tush touches the water, he's calm as a clam. 

He also loves dipping his toes in the water. He will wiggle himself all the way down to the end of his chair just to get his feet in the warm water. It's quite comical watching him do this. 

Sometimes he gets so low, his little face is surround by water. As soon as I put him back up into his seat, he just wiggles down again. I finally decided to document his love for the water, who knows maybe someday he'll be the next Michael Phelps!

Happy 1st!

Today Michael and I celebrate our one year anniversary. I cannot believe we've been married for a year. A lot has happened in our lives in that year with the birth of our son. I love them both more and more every day. Happy Anniversary love, I know we will have many more to celebrate and I can't wait to grow old with you...


To celebrate our anniversary, our close friends Allison and Bryan are watching Sullivan while Mike and I go out to eat. Thanks guys! We also have our anniversary cake to eat from Waverly bakery. When we chose them to make our wedding cake, they told us to use the top tier right away and then for our anniversary cake they would make us a fresh one for free!
