Brody's 6 month check up!

We finally got to the doctor for Brody's 6 month check-up!  Here is his stats!

WEIGHT:  20 lbs 1 3/4 oz
HEIGHT:  27 inches

He is a growing boy but I am so thankful for my healthy baby!  He is getting so heavy in his car seat!  I know the car seat alone weighs 10lbs so it is almost unbearable!

His development is going so great too!  Doctor said he is performing at a 8 month old level so he was pleased with that.  He was so impressed at how well he does sitting up on his own!  After being sick for a few weeks and teething, I was pleased that his ears looked fine...NO EAR INFECTIONS yet!  I can't believe we have gotten this far without one single infection by either Marissa or Brody!  We are lucky!

NOW, if we could just get rid of these colds...all would be well!  Ugh, I am sick of winter :)

6 Months Old!!

Brody turned 6 months old last week!  I can't believe how fast the months go by!  Here are some highlights of what he is doing now!!!

-You have 2 teeth on the bottom!  They are still coming in but are about halfway up!  If you do anything like your sister, you will be getting those top 2 soon!

-You are skipping your baby bathtub and taking baths with Sissy every night!  You love playing in the tub with her!

-You can sit up for a long time all on your own!  However, it all depends on your motivation!  Some days you just don't want to sit up!

-You are using your highchair and LOVING eating baby food!  You love rice cereal, oatmeal, and fruit!  You would rather eat these then drink your bottles!

-You are playing with toys so much more now.  You love your exersaucer and your jumperoo!

-You A-D-O-R-E your sissy and she adores you! 

-You are very ticklish and your giggle is so incredibly cute!

-You STILL wake up in the night!  You take 2 or 3 naps a day!  Usually one long and one short one!

-You wake up so happy and your smile is the best thing about my morning!

-You are wearing size 3 diapers and size 9-12 month clothes! 

-You have caught the flu and a cold within two weeks of each other!  You haven't felt well but you have been a real trooper through it all!

You have a doctor check-up on Wednesday!  Bring on the shots!

Happy New Year!

We ended 2010 with a New Years Eve party at home!  We decided to stay in this year and have some good quality family time.  Marissa and I planned a "fancy" dinner complete with the good china.  We got all dressed up and enjoyed a nice dinner together.  Here's a few pics from our night!  We are looking forward to 2011 and everything it has to bring! 

Also, for a quick Brody update he is growing and changing so quickly these days.  He got TWO teeth on the bottom that have come through.  He has learned how to sit up by himself but is a little wobbly still.  He also is mastering the "rolling over."  He is loving his cereal with fruit and this week I think I am going to start trying vegetables with him.  Now, he will turn 6 months old next week and he STILL isn't a great sleeper.  However, he is getting much better and with hope I am saying that maybe this month he will figure out how to sleep through the night :) 

Happy New Year!!!
