Doctor Appt

Mommy and Daddy took me back to the doctor today because my 'spit ups' have become more like 'vomits'. I wish I could make them stop, but I can't. They really do not bother me as much as they bother Mommy and Daddy. I think they just want to help me keep my milk in my tummy - especially Mommy because she is washing my clothes, bibs, and burp cloths EVERY day now! After I played with the doctor (he had this cool toy that he used to listen to my tummy and back) and Mommy and Daddy talked with him we decided to change my formula yet again. Hopefully this will help, but if not we go back in a week to check things out and possibly increase my acid reflux medicine.

Since the doctor needed to listen to me breath, Mommy kept my clothes off after they weighed me. Which by the way I now weigh 12 lbs 11 oz!!! Can you believe that! I'm getting so big!!! Daddy thought I looked so funny in just my diaper and bib (I have to keep a bib on ALL the time) so he took a quick picture.

Rice Cereal Video

Tonight I had something to eat other than a bottle for the first time. Mommy called it rice cereal and she used a spoon to feed me. It was weird at first, but I slowly got the hang of it. I am still not sure though what to think about it though. Mommy says I will get to try it again tomorrow night. I think she wants me to eat it every night before bath - pretty cool! Guess this means I am getting bigger and bigger since I get to try new things!

Rice Cereal

Here are some pics from my experience with rice cereal.

Before I had rice cereal for the first time - happy, excited and clean!

Mommy took me to the doctor on Monday because I got sick over the weekend for the first time. I am pretty proud of myself for staying so healthy so far! I am almost 6 months old and just now getting sick for the first time is pretty impressive don't you think! So, the doctor diagnosed me with the croup which he said I probably picked up at daycare. He gave me some medicine which is helping a little, but I am still super congested and having trouble sleeping at night because of it. Hopefully soon things will get back to normal. Mommy took this video yesterday once we were home from our Easter weekend.

Easter with Mommy's family

Me, Mommy, and Daddy left Grandma and Granddaddy at the lake to head to Winston-Salem to see Mawmaw and Pawpaw (and the rest of the family). We went to Uncle Kory's church on Sunday and I got to sit on Mommy's lap while Sophie sat in Mawmaw's lap during the service. We both did great and didn't even cry! I stayed awake most of the time, but did take a little nap during the Easter message. My favorite part was listening to the choir - I even laughed out loud a couple of times! Here are a few pics - check out my new Easter outfit that Mommy got for church. Mommy said I looked soooo cute!!!

Laughing with Aunt Kristy

While celebrating my first Easter at Mawmaw's house, I got to see my Aunt Kristy. She loves to cuddle with me, give me my bottle and most of all make me laugh! In this video that is exactly what she is doing with some help from Jordan.

Easter with Daddy's family

I got to celebrate my first Easter with both sets of grandparents. Me, Mommy and Daddy headed to the lake to surprise Grandma, Granddaddy, Aunt Jewell, and Cole on the Friday before Easter. They had no idea we were coming. Daddy got off from work a little early so we could be there in time for dinner. Mommy loves surprises and I think I do too! We had a good time spending time with each other and of course took some pictures.

My Football



Me and Mommy

Me and Mommy hanging outside together. It was pretty windy on this day! I made funny faces when the wind hit my face. I LOVE being outside!


I was at Mawmaw's house when this video was taken (April 6th). She was tickling me and making me giggle.

Teething Toy

This video was taken back on April 6th. It was the first time Mommy gave me a teething toy. She had put it in the refrigerator so it was nice and cool on my gums. I liked it then and still like playing with it now.

Formula Change

Mommy took me to the doctor this past Monday (April 18th). My acid reflux had become worse so she wanted to get this checked out. The doctor increased my medicine from 1 ml to 1.4 ml and he changed my formula. I am now drinking formula that has rice cereal mixed in it - yum yum! So far I think these 2 changes have helped a bunch!

Moving on Up

Guess what - I have FINALLY moved up from newborn to size 1 diapers!!! Woooohoooo!!!

Daycare Day 3

Today was my first day at daycare without Mommy. I didn't realize she was not taking me and staying with me until this morning when Daddy put me in his car. I thought maybe I was having a special day with Daddy, but when he stopped the car and got me out, we were at daycare. I wondered why Mommy called Daddy 3 times while he was driving there - guess she was checking on me. She must have been pretty sad because I heard her crying on the speaker in the car. Daddy kept telling her that I was going to be fine and he was right. I had a pretty good day at daycare although I didn't want to nap there. My teachers had to try 3 different times before I stayed asleep. What they don't understand is that my crib at home is more comfortable than the one in the classroom. Guess I will have to get use to it though!

Finally Mommy came and picked me up in the afternoon. I was sooooo happy and excited to see her face and she seemed really happy too! I gave her a BIG grin when I saw her! We came home and went for a walk in the neighborhood and then I played in my Bumbo seat (those are the pictures below).

Meeting Graham

Daddy's friend Graham was visiting for work from Australia and came over to meet me. We all went out to eat and had the best time together! I LOVE listening to him talk - it's so cool! In the picture is the Koala bear that he sent over from Australia when I was first born. Thanks Graham!
