The Month in Review -- Fun with Fauxhawks...

As I'm sure you all have figured out, these last few weeks have been crazy. So here's an update...

The little man still hasn't been sleeping for more than 3 hours at a time, so Tiff has been pretty worn out. Luckily for me I'm working, and she's been great at letting me stay somewhat rested.

Last week I had a two-day conference in Savannah, and we decided it would be fun for the three of us to head down to see the city. I've never been, and didn't get a good chance to really take a look around. Tiff took A.D. out on the town. They took a tour of the city, and although tired from the previously mentioned lack of sleep, they seemed to have a pretty good time.

After two days in Savannah, we stopped in Bluffton for a couple hours while I looked at a church that has a honeybee infestation. It's on the historic register, but that's another story... After that, we drove due north up to the Isle of Palms for a couple days, where we rented a condo and met my parents, who were down from D.C.

After a little fishing, and a lot of shopping (more for Tiff and A.D. than for me), we all headed back up to Greenville to unwind.

Here are a few photos from the past few weeks...

First dip in the Atlantic. It was cold.

We got a new beer-holder... It came with a free baby.

They grow up so fast...

It's hard to believe that the little man is already one month old. But if you ask us any morning, we'll tell you that we definitely feel like we haven't slept in about a month.

All in all, everything is going well. A.D. has been wanting to stay up all night, which seems pretty normal as I talk with anyone that has a kid or two. He has a little reflux, but it's nothing that a little Zantac can't handle. And now he has some baby acne. He better get used to it, since he's my son.

Other than that little stuff, he's a really good baby. He's perfectly happy sitting on the couch and staring at the ceiling fan. We try to go for a walk every evening to get him used to the outside, and it seems to be helping Tiff's cabin fever.

Here are photos of the famous one-month-old...
