the big six months

So Everett went in for his six month check up and I thought I would record his stats seeing as how he has no babybook, (pathetic I know, but I figure if I had one, I would just feel guilty that I wasn't filling it out, and who needs that kind of guilt anyways?) So this is the low down in Everett,

weighs 18lbs

can't remember the length, he is in the 50th percentile though (considering sean and I, I'll take it!)

sits up well, with the occasional fall over

rocks on hands and knees

sleeps from 8:00 pm to 7:00 am

takes three naps a day (when he's not ripped from his slumber and shoved into his car seat, which happens way to much, can't wait for all school to be over!)

eats baby food three times a day

has had two bloody noses

just caught sister jumping on his stomach saying,"he's awake!"

been in the ICU for five days with RSV and almost died

perfect angel

ava, the crafter

This is how Ava spends her mornings before Kindergarten, dressing and crowing life size (scary) dogs,
cutting up cardboard boxes and making them into aliens,

painting sweet pictures that I want to frame, did this child come from me?

loving the spring

and no I don't love spring for all the flowers, the nice weather, new life and all that, I love spring because of garage sales. And yes Bethany and I hit the mother of all garage sales this morning (thanks from a hot tip from Melanie). You know the kind, mounds and mounds of cute kid clothes, in all the sizes I needed, all for a quarter. Let us have a moment of silence.
