New bath toy

Jeremiah is too big for his infant tub. We didn't know what to do since we felt like he's still too small for the tub. My mom found this tub seat. Last night was the first time we tried it out. Jeremiah LOVED it! It gave him a lot more independence but kept him secure.



Bath time is Jeremiah's favorite time of the day!

Six Months!

Yesterday Jeremiah had his six month appointment. He weighs 17lbs 6oz and is 26 3/4 in. His head is 44 cm. He's right around the 5oth percentile in everything. Eric, our Doctor said Jeremiah looks great!
Jeremiah loves the nurses! He just smiles and talks to them. He wasn't a big fan of Eric. For the first time, he screamed when Eric was checking him. Guess Jeremiah is be coming aware of new people.
He was pitiful when he got the shots! One was oral the other 4 were in his legs. The oral one wasn't a big deal at all. He kept going "Mmmm" as he was taking it. When it was time for the ones in his legs, I was holding his hand on his tummy. As soon they started giving him the shot, his little face turned bright red, big tears rolled down his cheeks, and he screamed the rest of the time. Poor baby! Thankfully once I picked him up he started to calm down.
The rest of the day got a little interesting. My mom is here and has been dealing with allergies the whole time. Yesterday she started feeling pretty bad. She went to minute clinic and found out she has bronchitis! They perscribedsome good drugs and she's feeling much better now!
The past few weeks it seems like Jeremiah is doing something new just about every day. He roles from his tummy to his back with no problem, sits up for long periods of time, jabbers ALL the time. He's becoming such a big boy!

Road Trip!

This past weekend we went on a road trip to Jackson. This was the first trip we've been on since Jeremiah was born. I was completely overwhelmed with trying to pack for him and very anxious about how he would do in the car for that long. He did amazingly well in the car and the whole trip!



Trying to get a picture of the Alabama state sign. Hard to do when going 70!


Jeremiah did awesome! He just slept and played most of the trip. We stopped just past Birmingham. We nursed in the car, harder than you might think! Went into Subway for him to have some solids. He loved being able to go have a break from the car. He's such a little people watcher! Took a little while for him to eat because he was so distracted by all the people.



We made it! Jeremiah slept the rest of the trip! He did such good job.


Jeremiah loves Jodi! He just smiles and flirts with her.

Greg with Jeremiah. We hadn't seen Greg since our wedding over two years ago!


Same is true for Richard.


This is the group of people I spent most of my time with in college! I loved having a weekend to catch up with them.

Best friends!

It was a little strange having Jeremiah at our alma mater.


Don't worry, it was empty. :-) He loved playing with it though!

Kaitlyn: Update

Here is all the information on Kaitlyn... Her name is Kaitlyn Elliott. She weight 7lbs 2oz and was 19 3/4inches. Shannon was in labor for 5 hours. Once Kaitlyn decided it was time, she came pretty fast! Congrats again Chris and Shannon!



My sister-in-law, Shannon finally had their little girl! Kaitlyn was born at 3am (LA time)! Matt and I got the call a few minutes ago. Shannon and Kaitlyn are doing wonderfully! Brenda said Kaitlyn was already nursing! What a good girl.

I'm so proud of Shannon! She was 4 days past her due date and did it all natural. I don't have the details of weight and all that yet.

Congratulations Shannon and Chris! Can't wait to meet your little girl!
