Renae's First Boyfriend . . .


Love at first coo . . .

I know we've told Renae she can't date 'till she's 30 . . . but . . . since she is only 8 weeks old, and can't talk to, flirt with, or be hit on by the opposite sex, I've decided it's safe to let her have a "boyfriend."

Awhile back my friend Kari and I were both pregnant, and due within 3 weeks of each other. We both had our babies a week and a day overdue, they both weighed the same the day they were born, and they both weighed the same the day they left the hospital. Weird. However all the similairties ended there. Kari had a boy, I had a girl. Her little boy weighs about 13 lbs, and I'd be surprised if Renae weighs more than 10 lbs. Just look at them now . . .


They really hit it off and interacted well with each other.




What a difference it is to hold this "little" guy!


Kari and her baby.

This is how Renae spent the first half of our play date.

Jesse and I have always wondered what we would do if we had an introverted child since we are both extroverts and really enjoy being around and meeting new people. Luckily, I don't think we'll have to worry about that with Renae. For over an hour Renae didn't fuss! She just laid on the blanket and watched a little boy next to her play, or she would "sit" and watch the other babies moving about. She even smiled some at the many other babies and toddlers. Whew. We would have hated to ship her off to Uncle Trey . . . ;)



The Masson family (minus Renae) also headed to a hockey game this weekend. We had one of Jesse's co-workers from his old job over for dinner with her husband. Then we went to the game. It was pretty disappointing as ISU beat the other team 15-2 and there were NO fights. On a positive note, we did win a gift certificate to a local restaurant during the "chuck-a-puck" game. Woo-hoo!


In other Renae news, she has been sleeping really well this week! Before the cauliflower incident, she had been sleeping till 5:00 a.m every morning. But this week, once she got that gassiness out of her system, she slept till 5:00, then 6:00, then 6:30. Yesterday she slept till 7:30, and today she slept until 8:00! This Momma is loving it!

I'm sorry, but when we babysit Renae, we will not let her have boyfriends over. That little sweetie just keeps getting cuter! Gma J

Well that stinks. I was hoping she'd get shipped over!
