Happy first birthday, R!

Saturday, BabyBear made his first long road trip, as we headed to Austin for his cousin R's first birthday party. (It was also his first time to meet Aunt Kim, Uncle Josh, and his other cousins.) Here he is with the birthday girl:

We didn't take many pictures amidst the hubbub of having 11 adults and five kids together (here's what we got), but thankfully Aunt Sue and Grandma Linda did get a lot of photos.

If you're wondering what having that many kids together for a birthday party is like, well, here's a sample.

Happy birthday, R!

Guess Who's One Month Old Today?

So it took a month, but at long last I, BabyBear, now have my own account here at Jeffany. And it's just in time -- because today's my one month birthday! Here's a photo of me celebrating the occasion with my good pal, Fred. E. Bear.

According to Mom and Dad's unofficial measurements using the bathroom scale, I now weight 9.5 pounds (up from 7 lb 10 oz two weeks ago). I haven't gotten much taller longer, though; my Whale Tummytime Mat says I'm 22 inches, just two inches more than when I was born.

Overall, it's been a good month. I'm getting really good at holding my head up (thanks to my patented exercise workouts). Mom and Dad keep swaddling me up tight at night to sleep, and while I really don't care for it at all, I guess I have to admit that I do sleep better when they do that. I'm pretty alert most of the day, and my eyes are starting to be able to focus on things, which is cool. All in all, I'm very happy here!

Here's to another good month coming up!

The BabyBear Show! presents: Hiccups and You

Internet fans, it's important that you know that hiccups are no laughing matter. If you're like me, you suffer from hiccups at least once, and often multiple times, a day. On today's episode of "The BabyBear Show!" we take a look at this growing problem.

If you want to join me in fighting hiccups, donate today! Perhaps in our lifetime we can eliminate this incredibly annoying and frustrating activity.

[P.S. Sorry about the sound there. Apparently our audio engineer had his finger over the microphone or something. If you turn the volume all the way up, you can at least hear the important part -- my hiccups. The voiceover -- well, all I'll say is that narration is overrated. -BabyBear]

And the contest winner is...

I suppose two weeks after BabyBear's birth is a good time to note the winner of our "When Will BabyBear Be Born?" contests (both the original and the sequel).

Interestingly, the same person who snagged June 17 in the original go-around also was the only person to pick that date when we opened up the guessing to let multiple people pick the same day. That person was ... [insert drum roll here] ... Mom B.! Congrats Mom B.!

Close-but-no-cigar honors go to Bethany and Amy, who picked the 16th and 18th in the original contest, and to Scott and Kerry, who picked the 15th and 18th in the second contest.

But the big winner is Bethany -- who got a healthy baby and an extra week of not being pregnant! Yay Bethany!!
