6 Months Old! Already!

I have been meaning to post this since Friday, but some things came up (I will explain in a little bit) so I am just getting to it now. The little man turned 6 months old the other day. He even had a doctor's appointment that day and got his shots. Two in each leg. What a trooper he was. He weighs 17 lds and 3 oz. which is the 34% for his age. He is also 26 inches and that puts him in the 23%. The doctor says that he looks great, but we do have a little concern. The other day I was feeding him then all of the sudden he tensed up his entire body and started to shake. He didn't seem like he even knew that he was doing it, but it sure scared me. I thought at first that he was having a seizure. I wasn't sure what to think about it though after that until it happened two more times in the last week. So at the doctor's appointment I was told to time it next time it happens and if he keeps doing it a couple of times a week we have to take him in to see a Neurologist. I really hope that it is nothing and that we don't have to worry about it anymore. I will keep you posted though.

He still isn't rolling over. I really don't mind though. I can still put him on the couch and on the bed and not worry too much. He likes his food finally. He really likes sweet potatoes and squash, not peaches though. Just like his big sister, I couldn't get her to eat peaches either. There is a little problem with that too, he hasn't pooped in almost 2 weeks. Just in the last few days it seems to bother him. I have tried almost everything. Hopefully he will get over this soon too.

I totally love to just sit and hold him. He loves to cuddle and loves to smile. Man, that kid can smile! He can really make my day. He is a tough kid when his big brother comes around, he gets squished, pulled, sat on, and anything else that little dude can think of. He only cries some times.

Well, I tried to get some cute pictures of him on Friday, but he was so busy watching the other two play. So here are some funny pictures of him watching the world around him.

It is so hard to get a cute picture of the three of them, but this one makes me laugh so hard every time I see it! I love it! It is so real!

So there you have it. 6 months! Wow that time has flown by!
Just a little update on what is going on with me.... I got an early birthday present, my hubby got me a laptop. I love it, now that things are set up and working right on it! It is so fun! It will be so much better for me to get things done. Happy way early birthday present to me!

So Stinkin' Funny!

I have seen this sign so many times before and I get a big laugh. When I was taking pictures of my nephew today we stopped by the candy store where this sign hangs in the window. Since I had my camera in hand, I just had to take the picture!

Blogger is a 4 letter word!

Well a 7 letter actually, but I think you get the point! It looks like blogger lost my really cute template that I had. Now I have to find the time to get a cute one. I don't really like this one, but it is better than what was on there after it was lost. Even my flickr badge is lost so I will have to go redo that. Also my counter is gone. I won't know who is checking up on me anymore. Maybe all my blogger friends will leave and I won't even know it! I will be left here talking to myself. I will be no more.....ok a little too over board. Anyway, be patient, cuz this blog is going to look crappy for awhile!

I wanted to post something better than how grumpy I am at blogger, but I have spent too much time trying to fix it. I guess it will have to wait until tomorrow.

Foul Ball

On Labor Day we took the kids to the Salt Lake Bee's afternoon baseball game. We where there for about 30 minutes or so and we were already thinking about leaving. It was almost 100 degrees and the seats were so hot. I swear it felt like we were sitting on a BBQ grill. There was NO shade at all and we were all sweating like crazy. Also there was a really loud guy behind us that every time he would yell something it would scare the baby and make him cry.
While we were trying to decide to leave someone hit a foul ball. It went right up into the air and was heading down my direction. Since every time I go to a baseball game I am paranoid that the baby is going to get hit with the ball, I instantly laid over the car seat so he wouldn't get hit. Well, the guy on the row right in front of me caught the ball. THANK goodness! We then decided to leave, it was a little too close for comfort. (Just to add a little side note, a few years ago we were at a Bee's game with my family and my sister got hit in the hip by a foul ball. She had the biggest bruise that I have ever seen. Hence the reason I am so paranoid.)
We packed up the kids and left. We were waiting at the intersection in front of the park and right over my head by only a few feet came another foul ball. Totally out of the park! It actually hit the bus in front of me that was trying to turn right, and rolled to my feet. My hubby said that it came really close to hitting me. I picked up the ball and just laughed. Who comes close to getting hit TWO times in one baseball game with a foul ball? We weren't even there an hour! Man, I am glad we left!
So now I have a foul ball that will always remind me of how lucky I am to not have been knocked out at a baseball game, or on the street corner for that matter. (I also have Holly's cool lens that I was able to use to take a really cool picture of it!)

Real Food

We fed the baby rice cereal tonight for the first time. I am not really sure that he liked it. He didn't eat very much until he started to cry. This shouldn't be a surprise to me, the older two kids never really liked it either. I plan on trying again tomorrow, and in a few days trying it with apple juice. Maybe he will like it then. I did catch some pretty funny pictures of him though.
