Baby Kyler

As time moves on and Kyler has now reached his 5th week on this Earth, he's developed a strange new habit. Though very cute at times, it haunts my nightmares as he seems to do this more during the night than any other time.

His new habit (Of which he just happened to do as I was typing this):

He seems as if he is sleeping, and then all of the sudden, he wakes up and just wails for about 7 seconds. Then falls right back to sleep as if nothing happened.

Anna says she read in one of our, "Life of a Baby" type books, that almost all babies tend to do this, but Doctor's don't know an exact reason for it. It could be they're developing new senses, or maybe that they just have a small nightmare. Whatever the cause, Kyler does it, frequently and never silently.

Another thing Kyler loves to do:

Take his pacifier from his mom or dad, suck on it for about 10 seconds, drop it out of his mouth because he stops sucking, and then cry until someone puts it back in for him.

Anna recently took some pictures of Kyler and I'll post all of them soon, but for now I'll post the one I've already got loaded onto the computer, and by far the best of the batch.

This is the Stephenson family, hoping all is well in the Dunlaps of West Point Clan.
See you on Sunday!

A Trip To San Diego

Celesta performed in the Holiday Bowl on December 27. Jeff and I went with her and while there visited Kay and James. We were priveledged to witness Tyler and Barbara's wedding and had a great time touring the area.
