Six Month Update!

Here's my little "heartbreaker!" Went to the doc today. Tommy G. is 15.5 pounds, 26 1/2 inches. Basically hanging around the 25% percentile. Still a little squirt but climbing the chart every time we go in. He's doing great in all of his "skills" except the little guy just doesn't want to roll over! But he sat up for the doc like a champ-- and loved crinkling the white paper on the table.

Happy 1/2 Birthday, Tommy!

Six months of smiles, giggles, drools, diapers & spit-ups!

Camping with Tommy!

This past weekend we took Tom to Marc's family cabin in Cedar Rapids, NE. He rode with dad, I took the dogs in the Jeep. He did great, loves being outside! And slept great in his pack-n-play. He really seemed to like the tractor, just like Daddy!

Tommy's First CWS!

Tommy did great at his first CWS! It was hot, so we didn't make it through the whole game, but he was interested in all the colors and people. Last year will be the last at Rosenblatt, so we'll try to take him to a game then, too. Of course, we're pulling for LSU. Mom had some GREAT times in Baton Rouge :)

One heck of a crew...

So when it comes to taking walks, I've had to make a choice.. take the dogs and leave Tommy with Daddy, or take Tommy, and leave the dogs at home. Sunday I decided to try taking all of them, by looping the dogs leashes around the stroller. It worked out surprisingly well! At least once Belle realized she had to stay on "her side." I only ran her over about 4 times first... We got lots of strange looks and even more smiles.

Like Father, Like Son

Tommy's first trip to the Bass Pro Shop. His great Aunt Kay bought the hat... it's still a little big, but should be perfect by the time dad takes him to the cabin for the first time!

Busy Weekend and Baptism!

It's been a busy week and weekend! Tommy's Baptism was Sunday! His Grandma Kate, Grandpa Steve and Uncle Matt came in from Phoenix and they've had a chance to get to know him a little bit better. Here are some highlights:

Blowups and Blowouts **WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT**

So, Tommy got sick for the first time. It started Wednesday night, with some serious projectile vomit. No fun for kiddo or mom! I stayed home with him Thursday and Friday mornings, Daddy did Thursday afternoon, and Putty (aka Grandma Lynda) did Friday afternoon. While I LOVED having the extra time with him, watching him be so sick was miserable. I think I cried nearly as much as he did! He recovered well enough for a couple quick outings Saturday and thank goodness he was ready for daycare again today. The bug he had seems to have "worked its way" through his system... and that's happened with some of the worst blowouts ever!! Here's some highlights/lowlights from recent days:

Lucky the Kleenex thief!

Worst blowout in history: Ewww!! Thank goodness for baby OxiClean!!

Smiling through the sick:

Crashed out!
