9 Month Pictures

Jett and I had VERY busy day on our Wednesday off. Our busy day started Tuesday night... Jett woke up crying every 30 minutes and sleep maybe 2 hours the entire night. I knew something wasn't right because he is NEVER fussy. We had our 9 month well visit with Dr. Smith Wednesday morning so I thought I would just let him check everything out. Well it ends up Jett had fluid in both ears and a pretty good infection in the right side. So we have our first ear infection and our first antibiotic at 9 months. He is taking the Pink Bubble Gum flavored Amoxicillin and he LOVES it... he always wants more after he takes it!! After we got done with Dr. Smith we went and had Jett's 9 month pictures taken and they turned out GREAT! I love them ALL!!! Here are a few of my favorites.....

A Birthday Party and a Wedding Shower

This past weekend was SO busy... it flew by even faster than it usually does. Saturday we had to go some special little guy's 1st birthday party. It was Grey's 1st Birthday! I can't believe he is already 1 year old.. I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday and that means that in just 3 months my little guy will be 1.... WOW. That is unreal!

(aka Jett's best friend Grey)

Here they are together with Grey's dad Aaron

I think he was getting sleepy!

On Sunday Kerry had her 1st Wedding Shower at DJ's church. It was a very pretty shower and she got tons of great stuff! We had a great time meeting DJ's church family and getting to see his family!
Jett has a new friend... This is DJ and Kerry's
niece Kylie. He REALLY like Ms. Kylie!

8 months

I can't believe my little guy is 8 months old (about to be 9)! He has just grown so fast and gets more fun everyday.

  • You weigh 21lbs and 14oz.
  • You wear a size 3 diaper.
  • You are wearing all different sizes of clothes... you can still wear some 6-9 months and then you wear some 12 month clothes. Most of your onesies are 6-12 months and they are getting snug... you have a precious little pot belly!
  • You can say BAH BAH, DA-DA, and you started to say the "T" sound this month.
  • You are still a big talker and I think you really enjoy hearing yourself because you talk LOUD most of the time! If your daddy is still asleep in the morning when you wake up you talk and pat his head until he wakes up! :)

  • You have 7 teeth (4 on top and 3 on bottom) and know how to use them... you have become a bitter this month! You chew and bite on everything!
  • I hate to admit this but you feel off the couch this month. I was sitting there right beside you and you flopped down on your belly and just kept going until you hit the floor.
  • Thankfully we had to go get a shot that day so we got to talk to Dr. Smith about it. He actually said that you needed to fall off the couch a few times!
  • You still LOVE to eat and will eat anything I put in your mouth (except for Gerber Green Beans and Mixed Vegetables). You just love all food!
  • You have learned to blow rasberries and do it all the time.
  • You are still a dancing fool... you love to dance and dance to any music you hear... commercials, the radio, whatever!

You are always making silly faces!
  • You are so intreguied by everything, especially people. You are a people watcher.
  • You started to sit in a big boy high chair when we go out to eat and you think you are a big boy when you sit in them!
  • You still take a 6 oz bottle every 3 hours and you have your food sometimes after a bottle but most of the time in between bottles.
  • You are still such a happy baby. You just seem to love everything and everybody... Your dad and I are so blessed to have the perfect child!
  • You still love to give mommy kisses.
  • You like to bang your head on my shoulder and make noises while you do this... crazy thing!
  • You love to be the center of attention and believe me.. you are! If you aren't getting enough attention you will scream to make sure everyone looks at you!
  • Your hair is still growing but it is taking its time. It is very light most of the time. I still can't decide between red and sandy blonde. You still have your little mohawk going on and your hair is growing with your mohawk! Maybe someday you will have a head full but I sure do love your mohawk!
  • You are SO close to crawling.. I say you can crawl but you just haven't figured out how to get on your knees. You just do an army crawl but it gets you to where you need to go. You remind me of an inchworm!
  • You still have to be sitting up at all times.. you hate to lay down! If we are home during the day you usually sit up in your highchair and play with all of your toys or you sit in the floor and get into everything!
Jett and Grey in their big boy high chairs!

Time is flying by way to fast... I can't believe that in just a few months you will be 1 year old! You light up our lives and we are so lucky to have you!

What a Month

My sister called me last night and asked me if I had given blogging up for lent... HaHa. I thought that was just to funny! I know I have really neglected it but our February was a VERY busy month.
I started a new job February 1 and I LOVE it. I am working for Pediatric Diagnostic Associates which just so happens to be Jett's doctors! These days I usually don't get home until around 6 or 6:30 and then it is dinner, baths, homework (yes, I am in school again), and bed so I don't have a lot of extra time for anything. I also had to work my 1st weekend this past month and talking about wearing someone out.... Geez, I was exhausted. It was both Saturday and Sunday! Oh well, it's more money and atleast I don't have to do that every weekend!
The end of February could have just skipped us and that would have been fine with me. We had a very sad and tragic end of the month. Neal's father passed away February 24 and it was a very hard time. There were some very hard decisions that had to be made and it was just... hard... that's the only way I know how to describe it. Please continue to pray for the Shavers family... we really need it.
I am hoping that March wil lbe a much better month!
