People probably thought Mr. Mom looked pretty silly sitting on all of the motorcycles! Rosalee enjoyed it though. She stayed awake the whole time and was looking around at all of the lights and sounds.
It's hard to see, but Rosalee is wearing Harley booties.
This is a hearse for bikers! The man who owns it, Smitty, says that he is one of 14 people in the U.S. that operate motorcycle drawn hearses. The motorcycle is a tricycle and then with a typical tow hitch the hearse is attached. Jesse and I think my dad should look into doing this when he retires!
There was a mud track inside where people could test drive vehicles for free so I figured I'd try. I've NEVER driven an ATV before so I was a little nervous. I drove really slow at first and took all the turns cautiously. I'm pretty sure I'm the only person who did a 3 point turn the entire day...
The largest pavilion was FILLED with boats! They were so close together that we could have walked along just hopping in and out of boats. Jesse and I found it insane that some of the boats were fancier than most homes! We found one boat (in the picture above) that comes with satellite TV, a full kitchen, and a queen size bed!
These are just some of the MANY motorcycles we saw at the Expo. Jesse was like a kid in a candy store! It was fun to see him so excited.

He got the coat and chaps from my parents for Christmas. At the Motorcycle Expo Jesse bought himself a patch to put on his coat. He even spent over an hour last night putting leather treatment solutions on his coat.
This is what Jesse hopes he'll look like in the near future on his bike!

Rosalee now "talks" all the time! She loves it when we listen to her and talk back to her. She also smiles a lot more than before. It seems like almost anything will make her smile. We feel very blessed to have such a happy baby.
Her new trick is blowing raspberries. One day I started doing it to make me laugh and surprisingly she did it back! Every so often we'll hear her lying in her crib or in the car seat making all kinds of fun noises. At the beginning of the video she's doing it, so hopefully you'll be able to see and hear it.

Today Rosalee turned 3 months old. On all of her month markers I take some pictures of her close up so when she turns one year old I can fill my 0-12 month photo frame. Lately her two favorite things are playing with her tongue and rolling from her stomach to her back. Sometimes when she rolls over she gets stuck on her side, but she doesn't seem to mind. In fact she usually ends up laughing at herself. Today I was able to capture a picture of her doing just that.

On Thursday Rosalee turned over for the 1st time! Yesterday we had to put her on her stomach three times because she turned over twice. Today she wouldn't stay on her stomach, she just flips right over! She's never really liked "tummy time" so now that she's found a way out of it she's using it!!
*Again, I'm sorry the video quality is poor. I tried to edit the video to fix the lighting issue but I wasn't able to. One day the videos will turn out good... one day...*

This weekend, and next weekend, Jesse is attending emergency response firefighter training. After completing the course his name will go into a national database. Whenever there is a fire that is declared a national emergency Jesse would be called and asked to come help. He would be flown to the sight and then paid 12.50 for the time he works. If called to work, he'd be gone for 14 days at a time. He's really excited about it and hopes to be able to be called to work soon. I'll probably be nervous the whole time he's gone, but I'll know he's doing a good thing. Plus, with his degree this added certification will help him get better jobs.
