Day 99

IMG_1320Well, dad did great at his golf tournament today.  He and uncle Justin came in 8th place out of 35 teams!

Meanwhile, you and I had some quality snuggling time.  Like, all day long.  🙂

Dad was so excited about his great finish at the tournament that he went out and got me a brand new set of clubs.  The weather is supposed to be really bad tomorrow, but I’m pretty sure that we’re still going to be at Top Golf.

We finally retired all the 6 month clothes, like these cute little leggings with the fox on the butt.  So now all your clothes are either 9 or 12 months…

Day 80

IMG_1078LOOK AT YOU!  You’re at the big kids’ table!  You’re still trying to find your balance with that huge noggin of yours.  You went to reach for the toy and bumped your head, but you were okay.  This is your favorite toy at school.  You stare at it so intensely, like it’s the world and you’re planning to take it over!

Other than that, you’re still acting like you’re growing.  You’re eating a ton, drooling, sleeping, and pooping.  Your congestion goes away a little more each day and you can breathe better through your nose.  Your cough has pretty much gone away entirely.  We saw on the news last night that RSV is rampant in North Texas, filling up all the rooms at the Children’s hospitals.  Your cousins, JJ and Bryson, had it too.  Thank goodness we’re over that!

Day 51

IMG_0769You in the PGA Superstore, not interested.

Sports news: The Dallas Cowboys made it one round closer to the Superbowl.  Next match up is against Green Bay at Green Bay; the first time since 1963.

While we were out, we got you a Bumbo seat.  It’s supposed to be awesome, but you’re still not ready for it.  You have to be able to hold your head up on your own for an extended period of time, which you’re not quite able to do.  We also looked at the bigger car seats… since you’ll be in one of those before we know it.

Day 43

Saturday, 12/27/14; aka date night for mom and dad.  We left you with Grandma Recer and went to see the final Hobbit movie in the series.  We went to the Look Theater and ran into Beck and Noreen.  They have a daughter, Zara, about your age who I’m sure you’ll meet one day.

Grandma said that you were not a happy camper while she was watching you.  Aunt KK even stopped by, and she wasn’t able to get you to calm down, either.  Grandma said that shortly after we left for the movie, you were chewing on your hands and pacifier violently, like you were starving.  Gosh, kid, it’s like we don’t feed you or something.  She’s been talking to us about putting cereal in your formula, but I want to talk to the doctor about that first.  Grandma finally got you to sleep around 9 and we got home shortly thereafter.

Day 38

IMG_0665You love your new play mat.  Dad and I got you the Baby Einstein play mat at Buy Buy Baby today.  We figured that since you’re staying awake longer and longer between feedings, you need to be able to entertain yourself.  I think it’s working!

You’re 13.2 pounds already.  I think I’m developing carpel tunnel.  And you’re almost too big for the size small sleep sack.  I think you’re starting to learn what communication is… you’ve been cooing and shooting me these looks lately, like you know what’s going on and you have something to contribute.

Dad and I definitely have our roles established with you; he’s the protector and entertainer, and I’m the comforter and nurturer.  Dad holds you and you instantly want to play, then I hold you and you want to fall asleep.  Note to self: letting dad play with you right before bedtime is a bad thing.
