This is a question we get ALL the time. It is one of the first questions we are asked when family, friends, and strangers see Andy for the first time. Of course they look and me and Micah and see that we don't have red hair, and so they wonder why our baby has red hair. Well, we tell them that Micah has two aunts with red hair. And that in order for a person to have red hair it has to be a recessive gene on both sides of the family. We found out that there is red hair on my grandma's side.
We were surprised when we saw that Andy had red hair; I was expecting to have a bald baby because I was bald when I was born. Or that we would have a blonde baby since both Micah and I were very blonde when we were little. So we couldn't believe it when we saw his cute red hair. And his red hair is a nice color, it is more copperish than red. We really like Andy's red hair and hope that it stays. We think that his hair is getting to be darker red, but we don't know if that is because he is growing more hair, or if it is changing color. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens.

I just have to post this picture of Andy. I love this outfit, it is just too cute! There are little turtles on his pants. My aunt Joyce got it for him. It is still a little too big for him, but he still looks adorable. And the shoes are from my aunt Judy.
On Saturday we went to the Puyallup Fair with our friends Michael and Lyndsay and their two boys. It turned out to be a cold, rainy day. But we still had fun. Since it was so cold we had Andy all bundled up. He looked so adorable.
While we were at the fair we walked through the barns and looked at the animals. We also had yummy fair food; Micah and I had scones, mmmm. And we also enjoyed walking around and looking at the different booths. Micah was excited to get a free $5 Starbucks card by doing a vision check.
One of our favorite restaurants is Spiro's. Kim has been going there since high school. They have fabulously yummy food. We took Andy for his first Spiro's experience last week. Micah had Wednesday off so we decided to go out to lunch. Andy did really well and just sat with us and liked checking everything out.

Andrew is almost 3 months old, and he is learning many new things. Now he is getting better head control. He can also hold onto something if we put it in his hand. And his new favorite thing is to lay down and he grabs our thumbs and we help him sit up and then he pushes himself up to stand. He loves it!
This morning I woke up and went to get Andy up and I found him like this. I put him all the way at the top of the white sheet saver and he somehow was able to scoot to the end of the crib. We better watch out, he will be getting mobile soon. Oh, and by the way, he ended up sleeping 9 and 1/2 hours last night!!!

A little while ago my friend Lyndsay came over to visit and see our new house with her two boys. Her son Jack is exactly three weeks older than Andy. It was fun visiting with her and showing off our house. And it is always fun to put the babies next to each other and take pictures. They are too cute!
I love this picture of Andrew. He looks like he is having fun hanging out in his Baby Papasan seat. He does okay in it. He will only stay in it for about 20 minutes or so before he starts fussing and wants to be held. This does give me enough time to take a quick shower, or eat breakfast, or fold laundry or whatever. It is fun to see how he keeps growing and filling up the seat more and more. Here is a picture of him in it the day we came home from the hospital. He looks so tiny.

This past year my parent's have been having a house built. It was finished at the end of July, and they moved in on August 1st. They have been wanting to build a house for as long as I can remember, and now they are finally living their dream. Here are some pictures of their beautiful home.
Last Friday night Micah and I were able to go out on our first date since Andrew was born. We went to my mom and dad's house and dropped him off so they could babysit him. My mom was so excited that she got to watch him. Then Micah and I headed out to dinner. We went to Barnaby's, a steak restaurant, to celebrate Micah's birthday. It was nice to go out.
