My First Surgery

I've had so many ear infections these past few months - 4 or 5 and just couldn't get over any of them! We talked to my pediatrician as I'd been on a bunch of different medicines and nothing seemed to work. Luckily I was never gumpy and Mommy usually couldn't tell I was even sick! We went to visit the ENT about getting tubes in my ears and Mommy and Daddy decided it was the best thing for me so that I wouldn't lose any hearing.
The day of my surgery I had to be at the hospital VERY early! I arrived in my pjs, got checked in and changed into my Looney Tunes outfit! The nurse took me away and I didn't even cry! The surgery was only 5 minutes so I was only away from Mommy and Daddy for 10 min total. I wasn't very happy when I was waking up - that anastesia made me feel very strange. I cried for 20 or 30 minutes and finally got to drink my milk!

My New Basketball

Mommy left me and Daddy at home last weekend while she went with Aunt Darcy to watch KU play in San Antonio. Mommy and Aunt Darcy had a wonderful with their friends Leslie and Jess. They were even more pleased when KU won the National Championship!

Daddy and I had a pretty good time too. I was pretty good while Mommy left me for 2 1/2 days - I think Daddy survived too!

Mommy brought me back my first basketball and although I'm not able to do much with it now I'm sure in a couple months I'll be able to play catch.

Talking, Clapping and Starting to Crawl!

Where should I start?! Last Wednesday I started saying da da! Now, that's pretty much all I say. I'm working really hard on saying ma ma and Mommy has assured Daddy I don't know what da da means and it definitely doesn't mean I like him more!

Yesterday Grandpa Brad came to visit and I started clapping my hands! I finally figured out that when I put my hands together, they make noise! I get really excited when I clap and try to put both hands in my mouth!

And tonight, I started to army crawl a little! I really like the TV remote and decided I would just go get it myself! I'm still struggling a little and get kind of upset when Mommy and Daddy put things out of reach to force me to crawl. I think it's a very mean trick!

School has been really good...I'm learning all sorts of new things!

Happy St Patty's Day & Hello Daycare!

Happy St. Patty's Day! Aunt Co bought me a new shirt to wear for my first St. Patty's Day and unfortunately I didn't get to wear it very long. I started daycare of Monday and spit up all over my new shirt so I had to have a wardrobe change at school!

My first day of school (as Mommy likes to call it) was pretty fun, at least I thought so. Mommy took me to my room and sat me down on the mats to play while she put all my stuff away. I started playing with all the toys right away, just like they were my own. Mommy came over to give me a kiss goodbye and I didn't want anything to do with her! I was too busy playing that I didn't even care that she had left (Mommy's feelings were very hurt!). When she picked me up, I knew she thought I would have missed her, but nope, I didn't! She couldn't even get a smile out of me when she picked me up! I'm still not giving her any kisses when she leaves me in the morning...and she even tries to pull my face to hers, but I'm not giving in!

I'm getting good report cards from school; I've been happy and friendly all week! I haven't really adjusted to sleeping in the light with all the other kids. I take maybe an hour nap in the morning and the same in the afternoon; everyone is surprised I'm not grumpy! ALSO, I'm the only one in my class that can hold a bottle all by themselves!

My First Texas Snow

We had SNOW in Texas! The morning I had my 6 month check-up we had about 2 inches of snow. I was really tired after my appointment and Mommy didn't want to wake me up, but knew the snow would be gone shortly, so she took a picture of me in my car seat.

6 Month Check-Up

I'm really growing up fast! I weighed in at 20 lbs 14 oz and was 28 in by now I'm surely 21 lbs! I had a few more shots and have been eating veggies and fruits for awhile now. I like everything but peaches so far.

My other big news is that I'm rolling over BOTH ways. Mommy and Daddy lay me on the floor and I manage to roll my way all the way off my blanket. I'm sitting up pretty well and getting ready to start crawling! My teeth aren't in yet, but the doctor says he can see them starting their process!

I'm baptized! Everyone came down from KS to be with me for the weekend and watch me get baptized. I was such a happy little guy during the whole ceremony! I giggled and smiled the whole time...the other little BABIES were crying or sleeping! I was a little wiggle worm while the water was getting poured on was kinda fun!
