We've Made It!!!

... to six months. Holy ca-schmoly! My boy is now 6 months old! I'm in utter shock at how FAST the time flew. It seems like just yesterday we just brought him home and we were struggling with learning to breastfeed. Today he's wearing the next size up in diapers and diaper covers. Once again, his bottom looks bigger than the rest of his body thanks to the cloth diapers.

He had has well baby checkup on Tuesday and everything was great! He weighed in at 15lbs 11.5oz and measured 25.5 inches. He got half of his vaccinations and then is when the fun started... he started to feel a little warm Tuesday evening and finally about 9pm I gave him some Tylenol. His underarm temp was about 99 and he still seemed to be in good spirits. Yesterday morning he was doing about the same so I gave him more Tylenol. Then, early afternoon he started in on the whining and he felt even warmer so I finally took a rectal temp - it was 104!

I called the advice nurse and gave him a dose of Motrin and his temp went down a little but it's now settled at about 101. It was a rough night last night... there is nothing worse than seeing your son's pouty lip and tears because he doesn't feel well and there's nothing you can do about it. It just breaks your heart. He finally went to sleep around midnight-ish and woke up a few times during the night to moan/cry a little bit and then back to sleep.

I feel like I barely slept - I kept getting up to check on him, feel his head and make sure he wasn't too warm or too cold. This morning he still has a temperature of about 101 but he seems to be in good spirits and nursing fine. I'm keeping my fingers crossed his temperature will come down today and that he'll be back to his normal self soon.

Anyway, Happy 6 Months my baby boy! Mamma loves you sooo much!

Pears, Sweet Potato, Avocado & Potato

These have been our cub's first foods. It has been quite an adventure into the world of solids - and nothing as spectacular as the changing of poop! Although I would've liked to have actually SHOWN you how it changes, I know not everyone likes to look at poop. Ha! :) It's been interesting being a mom/parent. You never think you'd be sooo interested in someone else's bodily functions but it can really clue you in on what's going on with your baby. Anyway, I just wanted to share some photos of my boy eating his first four foods! Enjoy :)

Let me try Pappa!

Yah, these sweet potatoes are good...

Oh yah! Avocado is BETTER than sweet potato!

Eh - potato is a little bland but it'll do...
