So sad. And so big.

This past Sunday Deacon turned 2 months old. And with that comes the dreaded  2 month check up and shots. 
{After taking Immunology last year in school Jason and I decided not to forgo getting his immunizations.} 
He handled the first shot pretty well, just let out a little cry then calmed down, it was the next 2 that were doosies. He cried. Not for very long due to rocking & bouncing him followed by putting him in his car seat and rocking him some more which put him right to sleep. 
Poor little guy.

As far as his stats goes:
he weighed in at 12 lbs, 14 oz. and he is 23 1/2 inches long.  

(They didn't give us the percentiles, but he is quite long)
These past few weeks he has grown so much. He's smiling more. Not just gassy smiles, real ones. He's more alert. More active, kicking his legs and moving his arms until you feel like they could fall off. And 'talking'--well, cooing.  And when he does, it just makes our hearts melt, its the best part of the day! 

 We love when he's awake and 'playing' with us, but we also just love it when he falls asleep on us.

Our little guy

Well not only is Deacon warming up to the bath he warms it himself.  We both have had to sheild ourselves a number of times=).  
He even has started to like his vibrating chair! (Thanks Eric and Tish)
While I was studying for a test Michelle, Lauren, and Trevor had a little fun with Deacon and I really liked this one.  He has an excellent grip.  

Don't let the smiles fool you, he is a handful =) and we just love him so much! 

Last visitors in Hawaii

With only a couple of months (now weeks) left in hawaii we had some visitors. My Mom, Matt, and Arianna all got to meet Deacon and hit the beach for a little bit. With school going we were not able to hang out much but, we had a great time. It is just too bad there are selfish people that have to steal things.......but we still made it to get ice cream at the dole plantation!

(Above) Grandma and Deacon sharing some love with his new blanket that she made for him. We are grateful for Grandma and Mimi for making our little guy blankets that he will be able to cherish.

See you all very soon! =)

Thanksgiving Week

Thanksgiving week has become very busy. Which we love.

We started it off by celebrating our 3rd anniversary on Sunday the 22nd.

Then Laurens Birthday on the 23rd. With a delicious cake from Ted's Bakery...her favorite place...with a handwritten "Happy Birthday Lauren" from Ted himself. {at least thats what Trevor said}. The candles were forgotten, so we improvised with using a candle they had at their house. ha.

Thursday the 26th was Thanksgiving. And it was fabulous! There was plenty of food and fun company. It was fun to have more family in town-Laurens parents came into town as Lauren, Trevor and Justin live here. And with Kendilyn living in Hawaii we got to spend Thanksgiving with another Bullock. A few of Lauren's R.A.'s got to join us as well as Kendilyn's roommate Stacey.
After dinner we all 'vegged'. The boys watched a little football....while some of the Ladies {the cooks} rested.
Trevors birthday is the 27th. We celebrated with him that night with another Thanksgiving feast for dinner followed by some yummy desserts. Again, the candles were forgotten, opps! So that candle that was used for Laurens birthday came quite handy.
This bag has kinda become the joke with us...just that its used for everyone for every birthday. And with us leaving the island soon, this was going to the last time we were going to be involved with using it. =(
