This is a baby who loves to see himself in mirrors, pictures, and videos. But the only thing cuter than Rushton in this video is watching him watch this video. He smiles, laughs, and clasps his hands together in sheer delight. I can already see all the trouble he’s going to get out of simply by melting my heart…
As you can see, Rushton is very serious about his oatmeal.
This is what Rush thinks of church so far.
He found his fist. And it’s soooooooooooooo cute! You don’t have to watch the whole entire video – it’s mostly all the same footage, but I can’t bring myself to delete any of it. This kid kills me.
And it officially happened: This blog has turned into a show and tell all about my kid. He’s all I got! I hardly have any social interaction in any given day, and I rarely even step outside. Good thing he’s cute.
Our hansome little dude has some VERY blue eyes, especially for being so young (often babies have gray eyes for a while). Strange, since both Jake and I have green eyes. But I guess it’s not a total mystery since we both have blue eyes in our families. Anyways, I took Rush with me to my doctor appointment (long story in and of itself. Note to self: Now that you have a baby, don’t schedule to be ANYWHERE before 3 p.m. YOU WON’T MAKE IT ON TIME.) and the doctor ooh-ed and ahh-ed at his bright blue eyes. And I quote: “Those are some real lady killers!” I’m flattered, but it also got me worrying and hoping that Rushton doesn’t become too much of a ladies man. Visions of a BYU co-ed in a thrift store t-shirt and brown Rainbow flip flops, serenading countless googly-eyed girls in the Cannon Center on his guitar with cheesey love songs he wrote himself with the specific purpose of wooing said googly-eyed girls. You know the type. Ay ay ay…
Just wanted to share a video that we made of Rush over the last couple of days. We bought the Flip Video MinoHD Camera, and are loving how it easy it is to shoot and upload videos. Expect a few more of these… In HD nonetheless.
Disclaimer: I apologize for the non-makeup shots of me. When Jake was filming me, that was supposed to be test footage and wasn’t supposed to be seen by anyone…
I was going to take/post a picture of Rushton in my favorite outfit of his (which he finally fits!!), but that’ll have to wait. Before I got a chance, he had a MAJOR blow out while Jake was holding him – it soaked through Rushton’s diaper, onsie, pants, blanket, and all the way through to Jake’s shorts. Good one, little buddy. I guess that’s what my life is all about these days.
In the meantime, you can check out more Rushton pictures in the new album on Jake’s Flikr site. (Don’t worry, I did NOT take any pictures of today’s mishap.)
Never before has the world seen such a huge blow out from such a little baby.
Yesterday Rushton turned one month old. I can’t believe he’s been with us for that long! It’s gone by so fast. I thought I would have taken a zillion more pictures by now but between dead camera batteries, all the pictures being on the computer in the basement (a place I seldom go), and trying to get used to a newborn baby’s sleep/eat schedule, I’m sad to say that I’ve let this month go by with only a few pictures. I’ll try harder next month. In the meantime, here is a cute one from the hospital when he was born. Tonight I’ll try to make it down to the basement so I can post a newer picture because my baby is growing up so fast!!!!!
Jake and Rushton, Google Reading.
I am proud and happy to announce Rushton Ray Spurlock.
