Cooling off in the Desert



I finally got Ben a little baby pool and blew it up(boy was I dizzy) and We tried it out today. He had such a great time and quickly realized that if he splashed then Darla would try and eat the water and so he thought that was funny. I can tell this will now become one of our daily activities :P

That was Yummy :P


I loved this and thought I would share. This is what happens in my house after dinner and the boys tummies are full :) How cute is that!!!

6 Months Old




~Ben had his 6 month well baby today and he is doing just great. He weighed in at 18# 2 oz and was just over 27 1/2 inches long(he's going to be very tall). He is growing well and doing things beyond the typical baby milestones. He can grasp food with his fingers and has had a few banana puffs and tried his first Ritz cracker today and loved it! He still doesn't have any teeth but has tons of drool so maybe he's starting to work on them. His normal daily routine now is up at 7-7:30am play in his jumper for an hour, then he has a little breakfast of either oatmeal with bananas or just a bottle then he takes his first nap around 8:45 and will sleep for 1 1/2-2 hrs then he has a veggie(usually green beans ) and we have playtime on the floor. Around 1:30pm is his second nap of the day and is usually for the same length of time as his morning one. then it's more jumper time(he loves this thing!) and then we usually head out the door for some fresh air and sunshine and a little stroll around the block. He has Oatmeal with bananas for dinner at 6pm a tubby at 7:30 and then it's Jammie's and his nighttime bottle by 8pm and we start it all again at 7:30 the next morning. He is such a loving, laid back happy baby and Adam and I are so blessed to have him. Every Evening we look at each other and wonder what we did before him because it seems like he's always been here.
