A Special Chair

Aksel received something very special this month from his cousins, Kyle and Bekah, in Illinois. When Kyle (now 12 years old) was a baby my dad (Gordon) refurbished his baby rocker and gave it to the first grandson. Bekah (now 9 years old) was able to use it after that and now they have both outgrown this special chair. Aksel is still a little too small, but does enjoy sitting in his Papa's rocker. What a special gift to be passed around the family.

Today the temps are predicted to be in the 70's, so Aksel is sporting his first pair of shorts for the season. His chubby legs look so cute! It took a few attempts, but we finally got a good picture.

Belated Easter

Aksel enjoyed his first Easter by going to church with Mormor, Papa, Lukas, me (Annika) and Aunt Erica! It was a wonderful day and great food, as usual, made by my dad, Gordon (Papa). As you can see he looked very cute in his Easter outfit.

Results are in....

Aksel had his 6 month doctor visit today and he charmed everyone in the office, as usual. He weighed in at a trim 19 lbs 11 oz, measured 28 inches in length (2 more inches and he will need a new car seat!) and head measured 17.6 inches. Also, since he is six months he will get a book when he gets his check ups, he of course picked one about all different babies.

6 Months

Aksel celebrates his 6 month birthday today! He loves to smile at his dogs, sit on his own, play with his toys, jabber, read books, chew on his hands, and cruise around in his walker.

Birthday Weekend

Last weekend Aksel took a trip with Papa, Mormor, and me (Annika) to Maumee, OH to meet up with the Foley Family, Jessica, Ryan, and Erica. We celebrated Papa's 70th birthday and had lots of fun enjoying one another. Aksel loved his uncles, aunts, and playing with his cousins. Lukas was able to join us Sunday to Monday. It was a great weekend!
