Anthony in his Grandma's knit sweater and hat


My mom knit this sweater and hat for her first born baby boy. Doesn't Anthony look cute in his little outfit? He wore it to my birthday lunch, which is kind of a tradition in our ward. Usually we go out to eat for people's birthdays. This time Jill invited Heather and I to her house for lunch. I didn't want to take Anthony out to a restaurant yet, since it is flu season.

Anthony's first Fireside at church


This is Anthony's first trip to the church building. We went ahead and took it slow by taking him to an evening fireside, where there would be less kids and people who could potentially give Anthony the flu.

Dad snuggling with baby!


Anthony was sleeping with Dad a minute ago! :) We don't co-sleep; this is just a cute picture. Anthony looks just like his Dad and definitely has his temperament.

Mom's B-day with Baby Anthony


Today was my birthday. Chris had the day off, because it was good Friday and we spent it with Anthony! This is how the nurses taught us to burp Anthony, since he keeps falling asleep when eats its better that we hold him away from our bodies while we burp him. Chris and I spent my birthday watching a movie at home and Chris was on baby duty all night! :)

Anthony's first walk with mom and dad


We got Anthony all dressed up for his first walk outdoors with mommy and daddy in his stroller. It was nice out, but we ended up carrying him since mom was afraid he was getting too cold. Turns out he is a little heater and has been sleeping more because he was on the hotter side. Oooops! :) Now we dress him less and check his temperature more.

I have so many cute faces!





I can't seem to take pictures that do Anthony's cuteness justness. Two of these pictures are taken while he was fussing. Even his scream is really cute, though I don't want him to be upset. :) Doesn't Anthony look like a pirate in the third picture? SO CUTE!

All I do is sleep and EAT!


Doesn't baby Anthony look peaceful? All he does is eat and sleep. Right now he is only awake for 2 hours a day, at most.

Baby & Dad in the NICU



Daddy came to the NICU to see Anthony every day. Our home health care nurse said that it was unusual for the NICU to list the name of Dad and that this time they did! He is such a good Daddy!

Anthony Christopher Schmidt





The baby was out of his incubator for a full hour today! Both Chris and I got to hold him and as you can see, he is off of his ventilator. Its hard to see our baby suffer, but he's really fighting. We're so proud of him.
