Last weekend, we took a trip to Missouri for John's cousin's wedding.  It was fun to be a part of the celebrations and to meet many of John's relatives.  Many of them had come to our wedding, but there were also a good number that I had never gotten to meet before.  John's parents and siblings came as well and we enjoyed getting to spend time with them!

Another cool part about the trip was getting to have lunch with my own dad who was on his way to Kansas City.  To have the opportunity to get caught up with him again was a lot of fun!  So Thomas got to see both of his grandpas on the same day!
Before dad left, we took a picture (or two)! In this one, it looks as though Thomas is having fun and eager to tell us about it!

This is his serious - I'm looking at the camera now face.

Finally!  Smiles!

When I joined the picture, Thomas just wouldn't take is eyes off me!

Enjoying some Grandpa time!

That night we attended the rehearsal dinner and then gathered after that in the hotel lobby to celebrate Lisa's birthday.  By then, Thomas was pretty tired as you can see in these pictures!

He's still curious and was staring fixedly at the camera as his Grandpa held him.

Grandpa tells hims some amazing facts :)

What a joy it was to be with family!

Thomas is 4 months!

Thomas has developed quite a cute and happy personality.  As long as he's not tired or hungry, he is quite a joy!  He is quite generous with his smiles these days.  We have a lot of fun smiling back and forth at one another.
Thomas also enjoys studying things quite intently.  I've begun reading a book to him before each nap and now he will stare at any type of book or magazine that is placed in front of him.  I think he's going to be a bookworm!
John has taken so many cute pictures of Thomas that it's hard to know which ones to share! 

I love seeing his wide open smile!

 Thomas has definitely "found" his feet in the last couple weeks.  He has fun pulling them toward his mouth though he usually doesn't manage to get them in.  Since his fingers reach is mouth first, he typically get's distracted by his fingers and sucks them, dropping his foot at the same time!

He's been more drooly lately, but so far no teeth.  He also loves to roll over from his back to his tummy.  He's started rolling over almost every time I put him down in his crib.  I guess he never read the medical association recommendation that babies should sleep on their backs.  He seems to prefer sleeping on his tummy.

He loves to look at you and stare at things like ceiling fans.

Sometimes the things you say will simply amaze him!
