Trip to the Doctor

Andrew's six month check up consisted of the usual... temperature, height, weight, exam, shots, and surprisingly good feedback from the Doctor.  Andrew is right on track developmentally and she has given us the okay to start introducing stage two foods.

Height: 27 inches, 80th percentile
Weight: 14.75 lbs, 5th percentile
He received two booster shots and an oral vacination

Next check up is at nine months old.

He is growing up so fast!

We have been working repeatedly on getting Andrew to sit up over the past week. No worries… no bumps or bruises despite taking a rather big nose dive into the carpet. This incident was caught on camera, however I will not be posting this picture as it may come back to haunt me… I don't want CPS to come knocking on my door!

Until last night we have had absolutely no success with Andrew sitting on his own… none, zilch, zip, nada, null. All of a sudden last night he sat with a toy in front of him. Yay Andrew, Mommy is so proud!!!! I would guess he lasted about 10-15 seconds on his own before drifting to the side and falling over.

Next week Andrew will be six months old… I can’t believe! That is HALF A YEAR!!!! I better start planning his first birthday party because it will be here before I know it.

Happy Birthday & Father's Day Josh

Josh and I have never owned a grill.  We have always lived in an apartment where grills are allowed to be kept on your porch, but not allowed to be used.  Silly I know!
We have been trying to budget some money to purchase a grill.  Josh received a very genereous monetary gift from Mom and Dad to put towards the grill.  And Josh also received an equal as generous gift from his Grandpa Doc (he did have to work for that money, but not very hard - he picked them up at the airport and took them to their home in Pasadena, TX).  With a little money out of pocket we bought a grill today - Happy Birthday & Happy Father's Day Josh!

The grill Josh decided on is a Kenmore 4 burner, propane gas grill.

Assembly required... don't ask how long! 
He blames the directions... I thought boys didn't use directions.

Jackie's Bridal Shower

Saturday, June 2nd was Jackie's second bridal shower. Her church family in Conroe hosted the event. Of course there were tons of lady bugs to be found... my favorite were the ladybug balloon bracelets.
