Things They Say- More Babies

A couple of days ago the girls were in their high chairs and were being silly. They are really getting funny little toddler personalities. This particular day they were asking for more food (have more crackers, have more milk, have more strawberries, etc) Then they started asking for things around them that weren’t food because they knew it was silly. One of the things they asked for was more Wyatts. I thought it was really funny. Since Russell was due home any minute I told them they needed to tell him they wanted more Wyatts. Sure enough Russell walked in and came over to say hello to them. “Have more Wyatts!” they yelled, with great enthusiasm. Russell looked at me with a face that said “I am totally terrified, but I want to try to seem supportive for you if this is real” and asked “Are we having more Wyatts?” My poor, amazing husband. I quickly reassured him that we were NOT having more babies anytime soon and we both had a good laugh.

Another day Alyssa and I were talking and she said something about having another baby. I asked her if she wanted to have another little brother or sister. She thought about it for a second and then told me “Yes, get another brother. Put this one away.” (pointing at Wyatt)

Solid Foods- Part One: Rice Cereal

With Wyatt turning six months last week our doctor gave us the o.k. to go ahead and start giving him some solid foods. Russell is home from work today for Labor Day, and so I thought it was the perfect time. Of course we started with rice cereal mixed with some breast milk.

Here he is getting ready!


What is this? …. Guys!? …… What are you doing to me!?!

It actually looks a lot worse than it was. He didn’t love it, but he didn’t cry or anything either. He mostly turned his head away from the spoon. We’ll keep at it. Something tells me this little boy will learn to love food.

6 Month Stats

I’m going to stop apologizing for my lack of posts lately, because it must get old hearing it every time I actually do post. I’m busy, what can I say?

Little Man turned 6 months old on Saturday (how did that happen so fast?!) and had his well check yesterday. He got lots of praise and compliments from the doctor and nurses- they said he was one of the most smiley-ist babies they have seen. Yes, that is the word I am going with. And while he is still a big boy, he is getting very active and thus not packing on quite as many pounds in between appointments as he used to. I guess all the people who were worried he would be obese can breath a little easier. Here are his stats.

Weight: 19 lbs 14 oz – 75-90th percentile

Height 27 1/2 inches – 75-90th percentile

Head Circumference: 43 cm – 25th percentile

Here a photo from his monthly shoot, one I stole the idea from pinterest, and a picture of him from his dedication at our church.

And just because, here is one of the girls from Wyatt’s dedication.
