Tucker's Big Day!

Can you believe its time for another Simmons Baby Baptism?!?! Tucker's Big Day was a few weeks ago on September 12th. As usual, we were blessed by the presence of many family members who love us and this little boy so much! Its really neat now that Hannah understands what baptism is and why we do it. My church sings a special little lullaby to the babies on their special day and now Hannah sings that song to Tucker whenever hes upset. So sweet... I'll have to try and get it on video. For now, here are some pictures of Tuck! Make sure to compare them to some of Hannah's baptism pictures I tacked on the bottom... Its almost scary how much they look alike. You can look at William's HERE and read more about our treasured christening gown! :)
What a good looking family!!! :)

Labor Day at the River

What a perfect Labor Day! The skies were blue with no clouds in sight. The weather was warm but there always seemed to be the perfect breeze... The kids had so much fun and Tucker loved hanging out outside looking up at the trees. Jason got to take some of the cousins wake boarding and William woke up asking for "boat wides". It was a great, great weekend!!

Too cold for Bentley...

One "Boat wide" too many for William! Apparently he fell asleep sitting up. Tara was nice enough to lay him down! Thanks Aunt Tara! ;)

Wherever there's a Tucker, there's bound to be a Hannah nearby...

Update on the Little Man!

I cannot believe Tucker is almost 12 weeks old!!! Its completely mind-blowing how fast time is flying by. Its been a whirlwind but not because of Tucker. He is still a dream. He still sleeps 10-12 hours every night and sleeps great during the day. I have to wake him up every morning to take Hannah to school. He doesn't always care for his carseat but thats really the only time he fusses unless hes really hungry or really tired.

We have been going non-stop lately. Hopefully I will be able to put up some pictures this week. Hannah is on Fall break so at least I don't have to get everyone up and running at an early hour for 5 whole days! :)

Tuck had his 2 month appt (the re-do where is was actually covered by insurance). His doctor still thinks he has torticollis but I'm not buying it 100%. Well...I guess I am technically "buying" it since I'm paying for physical therapy but I really don't think he has it. His PT appt is set for mid-October so I guess we will see.

It looks like Tucker's growth is patterning after big sis and big bro. His weight went from 77% at 1 month to 33% at 2 months! He weighed 11lb 10oz. We are going to take him in for a weight check at 3 months just to make sure hes still growing. After all of the worrying we did over William only to contribute slow weight gain to high metabolism, I'm not worried about T at all! Hannah's growth did the same exact thing. They start out big, they grow slowly. Not a big deal...

He was 24in long and has a big head...just like the other 2!

Tucker smiles all of the time and is still pretty tolerant of the older sibing's affections. He loves to watch his tigers (his AU mobile) and is really good friends with Mr. Star from his activity mat! :)
