Uncle Chris Visits

Uncle Chris came to visit for the week...

and helped Little Mr. Farwell with his first mohawk,

which inspired Little Mr. Farwell to practice his thoughtful, disgruntled face.

Little Mr. Farwell and Uncle Chris surprised Auntie Ruth for her birthday.

10 lbs.

Little Mr. Farwell went to the doctor for his one-month appointment and weighed in at 9 pounds, 15.5 ounces.  After a weekend of good eating and sleeping, we're confident that he could break the 10 pound mark now. 

The pediatrician did quell any rumors that Little Mr. Farwell's rolling over is an indication that he is a boy-genius.  Apparently it's a reflex and it just means he doesn't like being on his stomach.  We'll keep looking for other indications.

Tummy Time?

Not for Little Mr. Farwell.  He is not a tummy guy--as he demonstrated by his figuring out how to turn over onto his back.  This video was from the third time he rolled over.  The first time seemed like a fluke.  The second time it seemed like he was figuring something out.  By the third time, it was clear that he did not want to be put down on his belly.  Does this mean he's advancing through the developmental stages quickly or that he's just really stubborn?

Interstate Travel!

On Friday, March 4th, Mr. Farwell left Massachusetts for the first time to visit his Great-Great Aunt Ruth and Great Nana Kay in New Hampshire.  He was a super interstate traveler--sleeping almost all the way on the drive there and back.
