Pictures of Carrigan

We are now posting new pictures of Carrigan almost every day on our MobileMe web site.  Please view them by clicking here!

This section will highlight the many pictures we take of Carrigan.  They are in reverse order with most current on top. 

  • Carrigan was born July 25, 2006 at 10:45 pm Pacific Time
  • Carrigan at birth was 8 pounds, 2 ounces; 18.5 inches long, very healthy
  • Carrigan is beautiful, alert, lots of dark brown hair, blue/hazel eyes, well tempered, sweet (so far!)

12-17 months old August - December 2007: Carrigan is a busy little girl!

Carrigan's gone from learning how to walk, to running with each day bringing a new cute thing or word!  She's learning so much and is able to recall most things like animal sounds, colors, Christmas ornaments and where she left her things.  She's a fussy and clean girl too...she picks up the smallest things Kitty drags in from outside and she goes to the trash cabinet, opens the door, discards the trash in her hand, then closes the door.  She closes every door behind us...and can open any door in our house.  Needless to say, we are having too much fun running around behind her to be able to update the web site.  But here you go...the last five months in pictures.  From a week in P-Town MA with our friends Patrick and Jim and their son Ethan, to Disneyland in CA with our surrogate Stephanie (wonderful to see her after a year!) along with our friends Ryland and Mark and their son Max,  to a weekend at Edisto beach with our friend Kirk and his son Ryan, to Halloween with her three costumes (Duck-Duck of course was her favorite), to preparing for Christmas.  Enjoy her progress with us.

11-12 months old June - July 2007: Carrigan is a year old!

We have been looking forward to Carrigan's 1st birthday.  She is now 24 pounds and 30 inches tall.  She is soooo close to walking.  She took four steps on her own, stopped then walked another step.  We count that!!  She is saying many more words now...banana, yellow, balloon, hello, hi, mimi (Tommy's mother), ma (for Tommy's grandmother), no-no (to Kitty and the wall plugs as she crawls by), duck-duck...and of course our favorites:  dad and dadda (daddy).  She has begun teasing Kitty.  She drops a Cheerio on the floor knowing that Kitty will come get it.  When Kitty does, Carrigan jumps up in her playstation making a big noise and Kitty runs away.  Then Carrigan laughs a hearty laugh. They are on their way to becoming best friends.  Enjoy Carrigan turning a year old with us!

I'm going to be 1 year old this week!

7 - 11 months old March - June 2007: Carrigan's adventures

We have been busy these past four months.  Carrigan went with us to Jazzfest in New Orleans, we met other Daddies and their daughters in Dallas, we made a couple of weekend trips to our cabin in Hendersonville, NC and we are even occasionally at home and in the pool at Pawleys Island.  Carrigan is crawling, standing up, talking, laughing, watching Baby Einstein, loving books...every moment is an adventure.  Carrigan's personality is really here.  Assertive, sweet, funny and playful.  She points one finger at everything she sees.  She's taught us to touch our pointed index fingers with hers...sort of like ET did in the movie.  This is our new secret "I love you" sign...index fingers touching. 

She loves meeting people and quickly plays well with other children.  She saw her first ocean (and for the first time she showed a little fear of the big waves). Catch up on Carrigan over the last four months with the following 88 pictures:

4 months old - November-December 2006: Carrigan loses Grandma

We couldn't pick just one costume for Halloween, so Carrigan had a couple. 

Jeff, Tommy & Carrigan went to New York City where Carrigan got to be with her cousins Marci & Sam and their children, Jake, Spencer and Alli.  Carrigan became an expert riding taxi cabs and the subway.  We had a great time and Carrigan, the little trooper she is, was just great. 

Then Jeff's mom became gravely ill.  Jeff flew with Carrigan to be with his mother and arrived Wednesday night, November 15, 2006 (Tommy came the next day).  Jeff's mom, Myrtle, had been in and out of knowing what was going on but when Jeff and Carrigan arrived, Myrtle became very alert and reached out for the two of them.  She whispered to Jeff that she loved him and said the word "baby."  She held Carrigan for many minutes and even managed a smile or two as we took pictures.  After about 20 minutes, Myrtle went to sleep comfortably but she was never that alert again. 

Carrigan's grandma passed away early the morning of November 18, 2006.  Jeff was the first to arrive at the hospice.  He comforted his Dad and had a quiet, very special, period of time to be with his mother and to say goodbye to her knowing she was completely at peace. 

Sleep in heavenly peace, Mom.

3 months old now - October 2006: Full night sleep!

Carrigan has finally started sleeping all night long.  She recently slept from 9 pm to 6 am.  What magic that is for us!  It's amazing how much of a blur the first two months were with lack of sleep.  Carrigan's growing so fast and this month her personality started to show.  She's a happy baby, full of big milky smiles for Dad and Daddy.  She coos and laughs herself to sleep.  We knew we would love Carrigan, our precious baby, but we really didn't know she would be so much fun!

2 months old now - Sep 19 - Sep 29, 2006: Smiles!

Carrigan has felt really great the past three weeks and smiles a lot.  Jeff has travelled a lot for work the last three weeks while Tommy has been 24-hour Daddy.  The pictures Tommy emails Jeff every day help give him his Carrigan "fix" while he's away.

25-60 days old - Aug 18 - Sep 17, 2006: Searching for a routine

We haven't posted on this site for a month because, frankly, we are even more exhausted.  Carrigan now weighs 11.5 pounds.  September 1, 2006 was a great day...the day the Carrigan smiled at each of the Dads in response to us talking to her!  We spent a quick weekend in New Orleans where Carrigan was the cutest attraction on Bourbon Street as we sat in our doorway watching all the crazy people go by during Southern Decadence.

10-24 days old - Aug 4 - 18, 2006: Settling in

We haven't posted on this site for 10 days because, frankly, we're exhausted.  Carrigan continues to be a jewel and rarely makes a fuss but the amount of time and energy it takes from both of us is intense.  Getting up throughout the nights, cleaning clothes and bottles throughout the day while nurturing and bonding with Carrigan is a wonderful more than full-time job for both of us.  We have a deep respect for all single parents now we know how much work this do they do it??  We had a fun day taking pictures of Carrigan with an artistic point of view and went to Hendersonville, NC to visit Tommy's grandmother, father, mother, aunts and grandfather.  What a wonderful time. 

OK everyone, there is finally a bow in her hair! Enough already!
Our sweet princess looks amazing in teal

6-9 days old - Jul 31 - Aug 3, 2006: Travel home

We had a tough and tearful goodbye with leaving our family in Utah. Carrigan was better on the flight back than we were.  Meeting us at the airport was Carrigan's grandmother, Donna (Tommy's mother), who is thankfully staying with us for a week.  She was so happy to meet her granddaughter.  We were thrilled with a surprise visit Thursday morning by Tommy's father (Tom) and grandmother ("Ma").  Carrigan got to love and cuddle with both of them making for a wonderful first day home!

5 days old - July 30, 2006: A blessing in Utah

Several months ago before Carrigan was born, we purchased a beautiful blessing gown made of lace, linen and organza at store nearJackson Square in New Orleans.  We presented a lace hankie made from the same material as the blessing gown to Jeff's mom and two sisters (Patti and Vicki).  Jeff's family gathered at his sister Vicki's house for Carrigan to receive a blessing.  Vicki's husband Brook offered a beautiful prayer with the family gathered around.  It was a wonderful, spiritual way to welcome Carrigan into our family and the world and to seek all of God's blessings for her, the future and for Tommy and Jeff as parents.  After that we celebrated second cousin Spencer's 7th birthday.  A great family night and Carrigan was a jewel.

Grandma showed Dad (Jeff) how to iron and keep the pleats. When Jeff hung the dress in the hallway he noticed a magical light coming through the front window. It illuminated the blessing gown with an angelic quality.

4 days old - July 29, 2006: In Utah to visit Jeff's family

We were two nervous dads (July 28) driving the hour from our hotel to LAX airport in heavy weekend traffic.  We made it through security by figuring out one of us would hold Carrigan while the other took his shoes off and got the computers out of the bags for scanning.  The flight was thankfully uneventful and smooth.  Carrigan, as we've been saying all along, was a complete angel.  No crying or fuss, she slept the entire time.  We arrived around midnight to Jeff's parents house where Carrigan got to meet her Grandma Mrytle and Grandpa Tom.  It was a joyous, once in a lifetime event. 

The next day, both of Carrigan's Aunts (Patti and VIcki) along with several cousins and second cousins dropped by.  Carrigan, of course, was perfectly cute.

3 days old - July 28, 2006: Getting ready to fly to Utah later tonight!

We hate to even say it (because it may jinx us), but Carrigan is so easy-going, sleeps hours on end, eats well, makes the cutest faces and sounds, and loves to cuddle.  Hardly ever a cry.  And cute too? How blessed are we...very much so!

We prepare today to leave Los Angeles and fly to Utah to see Jeff's Mom & Dad and all of our relatives.  More pictures later.
