Half a year old!

Besides almost shipping my child off in a pretty little care package to Africa...I would say its been a good month.

I'm kidding... kinda.

He's lucky he's cute.

Health: We have switched Pedi's, mine was getting me no where. She was very nice, just not giving me answers I was looking for and not very confident in her presentation with things. Our new Pedi is very nice, she think he has allergies so he is on an allergy medicine once a day. I am still convinced it is acid reflux and we should to up his Zantac intake. Any other moms deal with reflux? He will be sleeping so peacefully and wake up in a fit of rage in which there is no calming him down unless I pace the room bouncing him. Goodtimes.

Weight- no problems- he was 17lbs 14oz at the doc office, growing like a champ! Still eating soilds 3 times a day, I am basically giving him everything we eat. I puree it in the baby bullet and he takes it down with no problems. We recently tried spaghetti, he was a huge fan!

Sleep: One word. Awful. This little rosey cheeked boy has his 2 bottom teeth poking through! We have broken ground finally!!!! He goes down around 6/7pm and wakes up constantly screaming until I bounce him back to sleep. Since he is now rolling he rolls to his back and screams bloody murder until we either turn him back on his stomach or pick him up and walk him. I doubt this is from teething? Which brings me back to the reflux question. Hopefully our Pedi can answer this at our follow up appointment on the 28th.

Likes: I am not sure of anything at the moment. Just kidding. CARTOONS is a big one! I know I shouldnt have him infront of the TV but this is the only place I can catch a 20 minute break. His eyes are glued to the TV when Disney Junior gets put on and he goes into a trance staring.

 Also the dog he loves the dog. He will be in a fit and Tybee will walk in the room and he instantly stops and smiles at him, I swear they talk to each other. As seen below- quick snap of a pic as soon as he saw him.

Clothes: He is in 9 month jammies now, they are a little big but his toes are a tad bit squished in the 6 month ones. 

As always I am sad to see another month fly by before us however I am VERY excited to see what is to come.


  1. He's too cute in those little tie shirts I can't deal.

  2. He is precious. I can totally relate to the no sleep thing. Hang in there, momma! Waverly did the exact same thing for two weeks ad it was brutal. After a couple nights of letting her cry for a bit (worst thing ever) she is doing so much better. Fingers crossed! Good luck - there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

  3. Aww he is precious. I love how honest you are about everything. My son doesnt have acid reflux but (totally unrelated story coming) there was a period where he would wake up screaming and we would fine that he scratched himself till he bled due to having exzema which we had no clue about. It sucks when something happens and you dont know what the cause is. Hang in there, hopefully the new doctor will be better!

  4. Oh my gosh he is growing so fast! Such a little cutie pie!

  5. I love him. I can't say it enough. I can't believe he's 6 months already! Slow down time!

  6. our babies are a week apart! how fun!!! too bad we live on opposite sides of the country or a play date would be a must! :)
