Mommy and Daddy Day

Mommy and Daddy celebrated their 3rd wedding anniversary on 8/28. That evening they went out to a fancy restaurant to eat, while Grandma and I played at home!

Don't they look nice:


So, the past couple of weeks I have been clawing at my face and ears as I am noticing some discomfort with my face. Mommy and Daddy didn't really like me doing this, until I made it be known that two little hard white things are poking out of my bottom gum! They feel kinda funny and sometimes hurt me. Mommy makes sure we always have Orajel handy, which helps out a lot. Overall, they haven't been too hard on me. Here is Mommy and Daddy attempting to get a picture of my new teeth!

Up to Date!

Ok, I believe I am caught up with telling you what has happened for the first 4-5 months of my life. Sorry for the information overload.

So, now we will start with current posts moving forward!

I can't believe that I am almost 5 months old!

Early August Happenings

Ok, I am almost up to date with this blog thing. I have recapped my first 4 months to you in the posts before this. This post describes what I've been up to for the month of August!

The month of August was really hot in Raleigh, so we spent a lot of time in the pool! This picture is really neat! Mommy and Daddy are teaching me how to go under water!
Awww...look at Daddy and me posing!
We took another trip to the beach! Did I ever tell you that boogie boards are great for napping!

This water stuff is pretty cool!
Here's my granddaddy and mimi holding me!
I am one cool dude!

My 4th Month

Connor and I like to swing together. Not sure Connor will like it too much once I start trying to grab him!For Grandma's birthday, we took her to the park and brought a picnic lunch. Grandma took me on the Pullen Park carousel for the first time. I'm not too sure what I think about this flying pig though!Spending time at the beach is fun! Mommy and I are playing in the ocean together...My first trip to the beach! Again, I am not I sit in my lounge chair with properly placed towels to prop me up, my tent that blocks UV rays to protect my skin, and my cool beach swimsuit!Here I dressed in my first 4th of July attire!

My 3rd Month

My 3rd month was very exciting! I was baptized at our church on June 3rd.

Here are my godparents - Erin and Joel Thompson - Erin is my mommy's cousin:

Here I am at the church with mommy, daddy, and pastor Jay Minnick:
Here I am at my two month doctor visit. Doctor said I was doing great! I declined to post pictures of the visit much after the time this picture was taken...I was not looking my best after those crazy nurse's poked me with those sharp silver things in the thigh!
We decided to take a trip to Charleston, South Carolina because mommy's cousin Joyanna was graduating from high school and we went down to celebrate and visit with family. Here is a baby we met while down there (the baby is mommy's cousin Dusty's son Dustin):
We also got to meet mommy's cousin Jenny's little girl Chloe!
You have already met my big sister Katie, but here is my big brother Connor. He is a blue crowned conure. I like watching him!
Guess what! We have a really neat pool at our house. It got warm enough for me to get in. I really like chillin on the float!
Here is my great-grandmother reading me a book! I love to watch intently.

My 2nd Month

Helloooo ladies!

I love just "whalin' around"! Look at my setup (I'm not spoiled :)). Nice comfy chair with a nice headrest and blanket half way up so I don't get too hot. Feel the breeze....

Here is my daddy trying to wake me up!

I suppose that I will introduce you to my parents! They are really great people. You should meet them sometime. Here is my mommy:

I'm not so sure about this bottle thing. I prefer my milk straight from the tap!

My 1st Month

A gallery of pictures of me during my first month:

Mom and dad decided to give me a pacifier at 3 weeks old after daddy spent all morning long one day with his finger in my mouth! I just needed something to suck on!

Here is my big sister Katie trying to get some attention:

Just chillin with my fluffy sister:

Here I'm having fun with grandma on one of my first trips to Nashville, NC:

I like to sleep with my arms up in the air!

My name is Chandler Euan Osterhoudt!

I was born into this wonderful world on April 3rd, 2007.
My mommy delivered me at the Women's Birth and Wellness Center in Chapel Hill. I'm not much of a Chapel Hill / UNC fan (just look at my hat), but that place was really neat. I was born under water!

My parents were not expecting me to come into this world so quickly - they said they forgot the camera at home, therefore we do not have too many pictures of me at the birth center. I think my grandma has some though.

The trip home was exhausting for me :)

I'm New to the Blogging World!


After seeing many of my friends with these blogs, I thought it would be a good idea for me to start one for my family and friends to see pictures of me as I grow!

Unfortunately, I did not start this blog until I was 4 months old (almost 5 months). Therefore, I will have a couple of posts taken you through my first 4 months. Then I will keep it updated on events that happen.
