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!

Be Mine

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I had my first experience with paint! Mommy thought it would be fun to make Valentine's Day paintings instead of buying gifts. I really liked all the bright colors and making a mess on my high chair! My paintings are one-of-a-kind and pretty darn cute!

4 Month Check-Up

Whew, I'm growing so fast! I now weigh 18.5 lbs and am 26.5 in long, which puts me in the 97% in both categories!

Testing out my new high chair!

The doctor told me I could start eating cereal - yummy! Mommy ran out and bought me new bowls, spoons and bibs so that we could test this cereal thing out. I told her I didn't really need a bib but she insisted I wear one.

I wasn't too interested the first time as Mommy waited TOO late and I was so hungry that all I was interested in was my bottle! We gave it another try the next day and man was that some good stuff! It managed to leak down my neck so maybe Mommy was right when she said I needed a bib! I've been eating it for about a week now and I've got it mastered. I open my mouth when I see the spoon coming and smack my lips because it taste so good!

Family Pictures

MORE PICTURES?! When will all the picture taking stop? I behaved this go-around and didn't wet myself and everything else in sight!

Check out my dimples! I have them just like my dad.

I was trying to hide from the silly photographer.

I'm getting pretty good at holding myself up!

Check out my shirt...Mommy says it makes me look like such a big boy!

My First Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I made it through my first Christmas! I have to say, Christmas is pretty cool and I think I'm going to like this holiday. What's better than lots of blinking, colorful lights, lots of new toys and good food? Well, I didn't get to eat any food, but it all sure looked yummy. My Uncle Brent, Gigi and Great Grandma and Granddad came down so all our family was in Texas this year.

Santa brought me a really neat CD player that plays songs and makes animal noises when I push the big orange button. I also got this little car that I can scoot around on and as soon as I'm able to walk, it turns into a little walker thing. My stocking was also full of Disney DVDs, CDs and balls!

Uncle Brent is starting to think I'm not so bad! He was a little hesitant to hold me when I was really little but now I think he likes me. He says babies don't like him and they also cry when he holds them. When Uncle Brent was holding me, I spit up all over his hands. Everyone started to laugh and I didn't think it was so funny; I broke down crying!

This isn't my toy from Santa, but this one is pretty cool too. It's Pooh and all his friends...they sing to me while I ride around. Aunt Darcy was nice enough to push me all over the patio on Christmas Day.Great Grandmas Ila has been out of practice for awhile. I'm the first new baby in the family since Uncle Brent!
