Oak Mountain Petting Zoo

Last week we met up with Catherine, James, Anna and Jimmy (and Sarah too!) at the Oak Mountain Park Petting Zoo. It was mostly goats but 2 year olds don't seem to mind. Then we headed to the playground and had a picnic. They played hard and napped hard!!

Chambers Four Month Check-up

Chambers is four months old. I can't believe it! Here are his stats from his appointment.

Weight: 15 lb 10 oz (60th percentile)
Height 26.5" (90th percentile)

It looks like we have another tall one. Maybe not quite as tall as Moseley though :) He had some shots which was so sad but he was a trooper. No side effects except maybe some sore thighs.

Things Chambers is doing now:
  1. Grasping things and bringing them to his mouth so he can chew (gnaw) on them
  2. Batting at objects
  3. Grabbing his toes
  4. Laughing hysterically when we change his clothes (he's very ticklish)
  5. Smiling at everyone he can
  6. Babbling and cooing
  7. Rolling over (front to back) and attempting back to front

Fun Fact

Both my sis-in-law and I were named for our momma's. She and her momma are Nancy Carmen Oppenheimer and me and my momma are Jessica Kimbrough Wood. Cute, eh? 

Of course, baby Nancy and I (Jess) have taken our married names but it still counts!!! 

I thought of this because I get to see my momma (Kim), baby Nancy, and Carmen TOMORROW!! What a lucky gal I am!

Alleluia! Christ is Risen!

This weekend, we went down to Mobile for Easter and for Chambers Christening. The Christening was wonderful! It was held on Saturday at 4pm. Moseley was baptized at this same service 2 years ago... wow! Chambers was so sweet during the beginning of the service then fell asleep for the rest. 

Victoria took the great pictures below from the service and some more here.

The wonderful and cute Godparents: Steven and Caroline Guitar.

Proud Godparents!

Goings on...

Some things that have been or will be going on with us:

1) John Chambers Garrison, II will be christened at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Mobile on Saturday, April 11th. I am so excited. Moseley was baptized at this same service exactly two years ago so it is a special time for us. We are so thrilled that his god-parents Caroline Engwall Guitar and Steven Guitar are coming in for the service! 

2) Moseley is so funny. After I feed Chambers in the morning I usually pump milk for storing or to give Moseley in his cup. Moseley said to me the other morning "All done feeding the baby, Momma? Otay, now go pump Mosey some Juice!" Apparently we were all out of regular milk and Kevin had given him some juice earlier and he wanted some more. I tried my hardest to explain to him I am not a beverage machine and I can only pump milk :)

3) Moseley calls Chambers Bumbo seat a "Bimbo." Whenever I put Chambers in it he always says, "No Momma, that's my BIMBO!"

4) I am just days away from completing my Lenten obligations! Facebook here I come (in moderation, of course). It wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be and I am so glad that I could detach myself from technology enough

5) I am 8 lbs away from pre-Chambers weight!! And only 10-15 lbs more for pre-Moseley weight. It is so nice to wear most of my pre-maternity clothes, even if they don't look quite like they did before :)

A "WICKED" Good Time!

Kevin took me to see Wicked and it was awesome. The cast was amazing and their voices... oh my! If you have a chance to see it, please do.  We had a fun dinner before the show with our neighbors at Chez Lulu in English Village. The company was great and dinner was delicious.
