Big Boy Pics

Look! My ninja bear changed his belt from yellow to orange! I like my burrito, but please don't call me Chipotle
I sure look handsome with my combed hair!

Rhys burrito wrap is serving two purposes. First, to help keep him warm in his new open crib, but secondly to try to keep from needing the head harness for a little longer. By wrapping his arms in the burrito it keeps them out of trouble and away from the tubes! He has really seemed to enjoy the burrito wrap today, he has been sleeping nicely since we got here. The nurse rigged a way to keep the blanket on top of the crib to keep the light off his eyes. He still likes to stretch his arms and I have seen him try to break free a time or two, but for the most part he seems to like it. Rhys has also started smiling a great deal lately, which is so cute. I am hoping to catch it on camera soon. I think he's already dreaming of chasing Rollie around the house!

Mattie Joy also looooooooooved being burrito-wrapped. Levi had it down to a fine art by the time John came along. With the right kinda blanket and a good technique, they have a hard time wiggling free--and it does seem to enable them to rest and feel secure.

Congrats on moving up, Rhys!

Love you guys--
Alicia and the fam

He looks so great Candice! I caught a cold the last few days, so it doesn't look like I will be able to come up there until I am completely well. However, I can't wait to see his cute little smile in person!

Dear Candice and Cody,
You don't know us, but we have been praying for you guys every night. We're so happy to see how great Rhys looks these days. We will continue to pray for all of you and we can't wait to see the next post.
God bless you,
