6 Months

Davis' 6 month check up
27 1/2 in. & 17 ibs. 5 oz
We have waited 21 long days to see if Davis has the chicken pox. The doctor has confirmed that as of right now he does not have them. He did mention that he noticed that he had a ear infection that is going away on it's own. I didn't even know he had one, just thought he was teething. He is growing well and his development is on track. He is about 50 % on the charts. His head is a little bit off the charts 80% that is. He is almost sitting up all by himself and he has two bottom teething. I am surprised how strong this little guy is, hardly cried when he got his shots this last time. He is getting so fun and we love spending all our time with him.

working on my tan!

SuMmEr Fun 09'
This summer I was exposed to so many fun and new thing. We went to our first birthday party with lots of kids and toys. Davis got to try out his swimming trunks. I didn't know you have to buy swimming diapers, we just left him in his diaper and it puffed up so much and weighed a ton. We caked on the SPF 50 so his white skin didn't fry up. I will say though he does need to work on his tan. We just can't believe how white our little baby boy is. We bought Davis a baby swimming pool and filled it with tons of balls. Sometimes he likes it and sometimes he cries when we dunk him in. One day he'll want to stay outside and play all day.
Another thing Davis has been exposed to this summer is the swine flu and Chicken pox. We were so lucky he didn't catch the swine flue that was going around. Now we just wait to see if he caught the chicken pox. Babies don't get vaccinated until they are 1 year old. His symptoms may appear anywhere from 14- 21 days after they were exposed. No more play dates or birthday parties for us for a while anyways. I have a feeling it will be me one day calling the other mom's telling them to watch there kids for any sickness because my son may have passed something to them. Don't worry everyone I will be calling you soon. We have been super lucky he hasn't been sick yet. We are keeping our fingers crossed. We will keep you updated.
I love all these colorful balls
Don't bother me, I'm working on my tan.

I think I had more fun than Davis did. How fun to be a kid again.

you never know

Our fun experience with baby food
We just started feeding Davis baby food and it's been funny watching him try to figure out what he thinks of it. We started off with sweet potatoes and sweet carrots. He seems to love them as you can tell. I just can't seem to find a good way to feed this chubby boy without it being such a huge mess.
Do I have something on my face?
You never know if he's going to like it or not.
I have a problem
This is how I find Davis in his crib sometimes and it makes me wonder bumper or no bumper? If I take it off he smacks his head against the crib bars and hurts his head. If I leave it on he gets stuck and I'm nervous he may smash his face into the bumper and stop breathing. YiKeS! So I took it off and then put it back on but look what this little monster ends up doing. I can't believe he moves around so much. I may take it off again just because you never know.

Another small problem
He loves to sleep on his tummy, Yikes again right? I put him down laying on his back but he loves flipping over. Well since he's been sleeping on his stomach all night long when he wakes up there is a huge puddle of pee on the bed and through his pj's. So every night he pee's the bed even with a diaper on. The best part is after I change him I love to leave him in his diaper, he looks so cute with all the chub hanging out.
You never know what it feels like just being in your diaper or underwear anymore.

You will never know how it's like to eat your own socks with a smile on your face.

Happy 4th of July!

My FiRsT 4tH oF JuLy
We went to a BBQ with some friends and watched some fireworks. We watched a lot of the Clearfield show on our drive home at 10pm. We really did try to stay and watch the fireworks but Davis was getting really tired. He loved watching the sparklers and the small firecrackers. I didn't know if he would cry or enjoy them. We all had a great time!

Grandma Jaeger made sure I had a cute 4th of July outfit.
I just love these shorts

Just the boys

Our own firework show, well the only one Davis saw.

He thought the sparklers & firecrackers were amazing.
