Friends visit and my first Trip

Shepard has reached the milestone of 3 months...he is actually 13 weeks old on monday which is his parents 3 year anniversary.  Shepard continues to do great and is more and more interactive everyday.  He now smiles routinely when his parents try to entertain him.  He plays a mini version of peek a boo.  We (shannon) have been trying to get him more scheduled.  We are trying for a 3 hour set.  When he wakes he eats.  Then its playtime/baby Einstein time for 1-2 hours...followed by a 45 minute to hour nap.  He seems to like a 2.5 hour schedule and for now we go with the flow.

Shepard continues to wake up around 430AM.  This has been his habit for a couple of weeks now.  We are thinking of trying Babywise and letting him cry out the 430 session

Last week Shepard had his first house guest in Alice Haney.  We think they had a instant connection.  Although Mckinley seems to have taken an interest as well.

This week Shepard went on his first of many vacations.  We travelled to Shalimar on Thursday and returned today.  Shepard did pretty well with the 5 hour ride but we did make frequent stops and the trip took longer than usual.  Shepard did great in Florida no great change to his schedule other than we put him down a little earlier, around 7 Pm instead of 8-830.

We are now back in great BR...Shepard is up from his nap and having dinner...therefore Dad has time to feed chickens, water the lawn and blog

IT has been way to long for an update.  Shepard has changed alot.  He is now smiling some laughing at his parents.  He sleeps pretty well usually from 9pm to 4ish and then 4 to 8.  He loves going outside.  IF he is ever crying and upset walking outside settles him down immediately.  He has sat on our front swing several times and likes to watch the coeds walk the lake.  He has started cooing here and there.

He went on his first road trip to N.O. to visit Kristen and her baby.

Also Dad has let mom have a couple of girls days out.  If you dont have milk ready when shepard wants it you are in big trouble!

Shepard was trying to show mom and dad that he was ready for football season...TOUCHDOWN!

Happy Buddha Baby

Shepard Playing

Shepard Smiling but not on camera

I didn't catch it with the camera but Shepard smiled at me for the first time this Saturday.  He had smiled at Mom a few times earlier in the week, but I had not seen them.  He continues to do great.  He and mom moved down to the regular bedroom this week, so the family is all together again.

Shepard meets his great Aunt Becky all the way from Orlando, Fl.  Aunt Becky has already bribed him with a free place to stay for Disney World.

Aunt Bonnie stopped by for a visit...she knows the way to a man's heart
Uncle Harris's first visit with Shepard!  We hope he can influence him with his Texas roots
