6 Months!

This precious thing is 6 months!  Boy how time flies and boy oh boy is Charlie so so sweet!  He had his 6 month check up at the doctor today too.  He didn't handle the shots very well, we ended up giving him Tylenol to help with his pain:(  Here are his stats and some of the things he's doing now:

Weight - 16 pounds (40%)
Height - 25.5" (65%)
Clothes - size 3-6 (some) and moving up to 6-9 months
Diapers - size 3
Eating - Starting to eat more solids, I mostly just give him cereal or his teacher does.  He started off like a champ, but now tends to purse his lips and not want anything.  Keep on trying!
Sleeping - ugh...this one is a struggle.  He sleeps on his tummy but when he wakes up in the middle of the night he rolls over and he CAN'T sleep on his back...not happening.  I've tried over and over to let him cry.  NOT HAPPENING.  I keep telling myself one day he will sleep soundly all night.  I can't wait for that day to come!

What's New?

Sitting up like a champ!  Man, the world is so much better if you can see it!  He loves it, but does get tired.  He's talking just a little, but for the most part is pretty quiet (I secretly don't mind).  He loves the jumperoo, sitting in his rocker (still), going for walks outside (not that we do that much), his brother and sister:), bath time and being held!  He has started wanting to be held more often...I probably shouldn't hold him as much as I do...but he's my last one!!  So who's going to stop me:)

Here's our sweet 6 month old!

Natalie;)

I have to give a shout out to our sweet neighbor Natalie. I don't think I have ever seen a little girl love a baby that's not her own blood like she loves Charlie. She drops everything when we come home to see him, knows exactly how many times she has held and fed him, used her own money to buy him an outfit, drives her mom crazy asking if she can see him and if he's awake, stops playing with her... friends to play with him...I could go on! Yesterday she didn't have anyone to play with and she told her mom that all she wanted to do was go see Charlie and that would make her happy. As soon as he woke up, she rushed over to feed him. Gosh, just melts my heart! Thank you Natalie for loving our Charlie!

Strep X 2!

I know when it's coming!  My throat started hurting and I just KNEW it was strep again.  I also took Addie with me because I had a feeling she had it too.  We waited in the doctors office FOREVER and finally got the prognosis..strepx2!  I of course was hoping that Addie would take a good nap or at least lay around (like any sick person SHOULD do)...boy was I wrong.  I even made a deal with her that I would go to her room and WATCH her play while I laid in her bed.  A four year old can definitely handle strep better than an adult!  She was off the wall excited to be at home with me! 

She played...
We painted fingernails...
We made Valentines...
Finally got to be lazy for a minute...
We made chocolate smorse minus the graham cracker...
She LOVES tomato soup!  This was probably the happiest I was!
And when Nana brought Charlie home, she got to go through a HUGE bag from her Valentines party she missed at school.  She was so funny, everything she opened she said "that was SO nice of her (or him"  ha!

Next time I get sick...I only HOPE I'm the only one!

Valentine's Cookie/craft party

Our neighbor put this together...they usually have a little party each month or each holiday/occasion.  This is the first one we have been able to come to.  Fun party of decorating heart cookies, cards and pin the arrow on the heart.
 

 

Can you get any more sprinkles on that cookie?
 

It was FREEZING!!
