6 Month Shots
April 21st, 2009

Brody got his shots a little late this time. He turned 6 months on the first but I didn't get his doctors appointments until the 21st. I had to work today and my Mom had achievement days so Anya, being the great aunt that she is took Brody to get his shots. I felt bad for not being there for him but I knew Anya would take great care of him. She said that he freaked out pretty bad when they gave him his shots, but calmed down after she picked him up. Doctor Lane said that he is doing great. Brody has 4 teeth coming in, two on top that have broken through quiet a bit now and two on bottom that are just coming in. He was pretty surprised by this, he said that 6 months is still pretty early for that. I thought it was normal but I guess its a little early. I made sure to have Anya write down all of his measurements. He now weighs 21 pounds (90%) is 28 inches long (80%) and his head is measuring at 44.5 cm, big boy!!

Brody Meets The Easter Bunny

Brody Meets The Easter Bunny
April 17th, 2009

Today the hospital had the Easter bunny come and had a little Easter egg hunt. My best friend Tawnya works at the hospital, so she thought that It would be fun to have me bring Brody. I'm glad that she told us about it because Brody had a lot of fun.

First all the kids got to sit on the Easter Bunny's lap and get their pictures taken. I was a little worried because I thought Brody might be scared and end up crying, but he actually loved it! He was completely fascinated with him. I guess hes still a little too young to think that the bunny is scary.

Since Brody cant crawl yet I just sat him on the ground with a few eggs I found for him. They split the kids up into age groups, there was a 0-4 group. I think more than anything he just really liked being outside and looking around since we've been couped up inside because of the cold weather.

Brody also had some weird fascination with the grass...he keep wanting to eat it! What can you do, boys will be boys so I didn't really do much about it. I figured a little grass wont hurt.

Brody is finally getting to the point were he wants to interact with other kids. Before he didn't really know what to do with them or just didn't really care to play with someone else. But now he cant keep his hands off other babies. Mary Clifferd's little girl was there too so we sat them by each other. Brody really liked her binky holder, Iv never really put one on Brody so he thought it was pretty cool.

Bubble Bath!!

Brody's first bubble bath!!
April 7th, 2009

Since I have been working early lately I haven't been able to give Brody his bath. He is usually asleep when I leave around 5:40 am, so by the time I get home Grandma already has him bathed and ready. Today is my day off so I figured since I don't get to spend bath time with him very often we could do something fun, a bubble bath! As you can see he has been doing really good at sitting up lately. He really liked the bubbles and loved the new bath toys Natalie bought him!

Brody goes swimming!!

Brody goes swimming!!
April 4th, 2009
While we were in Camas Visiting the Burnett's we decided it would be fun to go swimming. There is an indoors swimming pool in Van cover, which is pretty close to Camas so we went there. Brody had never been in a pool before so I was pretty excited to see how he would like it. I thought that we looked so stinkin cute in his little swim trunks, and I had done a fohawk on his hair that morning so he looked even cuter! At first he didn't quiet know what to do with the water. He keep clinging to me and wouldn't really play with the water or anything. I sat him by those little things that squirt water up and eventually we warmed up to it and ended up really liking it. He liked the play with the water fountain thing. He even liked going in the big pool with me, I didn't go out to far because I was a little nervous with him but he liked it.
