Day 174

29 04 2010

We went to dinner at Sal and Theresa’s house.  That’s me with them, and their cute daughter, Sofia.  Do you remember Theresa?  She came to visit me at my house back on day 75!   It was nice going to their house – well until Sal made me cry!!  I’m just kidding – well, not about him making me cry – but he hadn’t meant to and I only cried for a minute 🙂  They made a nice dinner for mommy and daddy.  They had steak – it looked really good but no one would give me any 😦  Oh well – maybe some other time.

Day 173

29 04 2010

Look at me – I can sit up real good now.  Yeah sure I’m on the couch and the cushions are keeping me propped up – but I use to fall to the side a lot faster then I do now!  Like my pj’s?  I got them as a present from one of daddy’s co-workers.  I have a lot of pj’s for my size right now.  Mommy says I practically have enough pj’s I could never wear the same ones twice…I think she’s exaggerating, but only by a little.  I really DO have a lot of pj’s 🙂

Day 172

27 04 2010

I had a rough night last night.  I woke up at 11:30pm crying and just couldn’t go back to sleep in my crib.  Every time mommy tried to put me back down I started crying.  Then she’d put me over her shoulder and I’d get quiet – she’d think I was asleep but once she put me down, I started crying again.  Poor mommy was so tired she took me in to bed with her.  She figured when daddy got home he’d put me back in my crib.  Which he did – except when he put me down I started crying too!!  He changed my diaper – it was wet – but that didn’t help either.  He ended up giving me a bottle and then I went back to sleep.  I started fussing again around 5:30am – mommy woke up and started getting my bottle ready, but then she saw on the monitor that I had fallen back to sleep so she went back to bed for a bit.  When she got up a little while later – she came in to check on me and she found me sleeping on my belly.  I had turned myself over at one point and I stayed that way!  Mommy couldn’t believe it.

Day 171

26 04 2010

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY – it’s my daddy’s birthday today 🙂  I love him very much – would have liked to post a picture of us together for today, but mommy was rushing around getting ready for work this morning and forgot to take one of us together.  Then daddy was working the night shift so she couldn’t do it when she got home.  Instead, here is a picture of me sitting on my blanket hanging out.  Now you might be wondering why I am naked.  I have a wee bit of diaper rash so mommy was letting my bum get some fresh air for a bit.  She was hoping I wouldn’t pee all over myself – and guess what, I didn’t!  We’ll have to see if all that fresh air helped my bum……

Day 170

25 04 2010

Today mommy had a photography seminar to go to so I spent the day with daddy.  We went online and watched videos of Sesame Street together.

Day 169

24 04 2010

I am getting really good at this tummy time thing.  I can pick my head up and keep it up for long periods of time.  I can roll over real good now too.  Mommy and daddy really have to keep an eye on me cause one minute I’m over here, the next minute I’ll be over there, or there, or over here…

check out my cool blanket – Joe and Amanda gave it to me.  It’s got John Deere logos and pictures of tractors on it.  Yee haw.

Day 168

24 04 2010

Uh oh – thank goodness Daddy took this one picture of me while I was having a bottle otherwise there would be NO picture of the day for today!!!  Mommy didn’t remember until 12:15 at night that she hadn’t taken a picture of me today….she checked the camera and was so relieved to see that daddy took this:

Day 167

22 04 2010

Here I am eating my first food – well beside cereal.  Mommy and Daddy gave me some bananas.  I was really enjoying it – they tasted real yummy.  I ate quite a few spoonfuls then I felt full.  Daddy noticed a red mark on my forehead.  Then one on my cheek.  They got worried that I was having an allergic reaction.  Mommy took me in my room to put on my pajamas and check me out.  I had hives on my back and belly.  They called Dr. McCarthy to see what she recommended.  She asked if I was fussy or irritable.  I kind of answered that question cause I was in the background laughing and kicking 🙂  She said as long as I didn’t look like I was in distress I should be ok and there was no need to give me anything.  I would be ok in a bit – just keep an eye one me.  They went to the store and got some children’s benadryl just to be safe.  But I had my last bottle of the night at 9:15 and went right to sleep.

Day 166

21 04 2010

I’m still feeling a bit under the weather today.  My nose is stuffy and running a lot.  I hope I feel better soon.  Mommy was trying to make me smile, she brought out the new hand puppet she got for me at IKEA.  It’s a horse.  She was making him talk and play with me.  She also bought me a moose – but we haven’t played with that one yet.

Day 165

21 04 2010

So I haven’t been feeling well.  My head is stuffy and my nose is running like crazy 😦   I had a hard time sleeping today – especially when Daddy was trying to put me down for the night.  I was really tired and I was rubbing my eyes like crazy, but I just couldn’t stay asleep.  Mommy got home and asked daddy if she could take over trying to get me to sleep.  She said she missed me and wanted to hold me for a bit before I went to bed.  So we cuddled for a bit and I started falling asleep on her shoulder.  But when mommy tried laying me in my crib, I woke right up and would cry.  After a little bit, I stopped crying and then I was pretty content while I was shoving my binky in my mouth.
