Big Day!

Yesterday was the day.... I picked up Jack and we went straight to Sills, the children's shoe store in Greensboro (the same place I got my shoes when I was little) and got Jack's foot sized and got him a pair of BIG BOY SHOES!!! He loves them too!

Jack took his first steps and he did it several times!!! I missed the first few times but got a poorly taken video of it once!!! I am so proud of my big boy!!!

Mom knows best...

Thursday morning I woke up with a tiny little butt in my face followed by a kick to the boob and then three....not one but three.....farts in my face. Well Good Morning..... not so much. All week we have NOT been sleeping! Things were awful! I tried so hard to let him cry it out. And believe me I do have a lot of self control when it comes to that. Jack never comes in our bed like this and he always sleeps through the night but something was different. The only thing that helped was me holding him. So as in act of desperation I finally brought him in my bed at 4:30 since I wake up at 5:40.
I knew something was wrong but the only thing I could guess was that it had something to do with the little rash he had. Jack hasn't given us ANY sign at all through out the day that any thing is wrong. He is the happiest little boy, but night time was a completely different story. So I decided I had to call the doctor. They asked us to come in and sure enough..... he had an ear infection!! I couldn't believe it!!

So I am happy to say that we got out medicine, went home and rested and the result was one happy baby......................and he slept through the night!!

What we've been up to.....

A LOT!!!! We don't sit still anymore AT ALL! We get in to anything and everything.
But, with that said, we are enjoying EVERY moment!!! Jack is such a little ham! We can't get enough of him. We had a play date with my friend Kelly:( )
and her twins Max and Claire and even though Jack was exhausted/grumpy there was so much laughter coming from the babies!! It was great! We can't wait to do it again!

Things are Changing....

Last night about 10 minutes after I put Jack down to sleep, I went to shut his door and this is what I found......
no crying, no talking, nothing, just chilling.
We lowered the crib.

You may NOT take my Thomas phone. I am expecting a call. Until then, I shall eat it.

Thanks for the multi-purpose mat mom!

So... I don't have too much to say when it comes to baby news..... Jack and I have become completely obsessed with P interest... It's amazing!!! but I do have a very important reason for blogging today. I friend of mine from High School is in the process of not only training for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer( a 39.3 miles walk in Washington DC on May 5th and 6th) but also raising money for it and she as almost hit her goal!! She also has a hilarious blog that gives you a hilarious insight to her training!!

Please donate to her if you hate Breast Cancer!!! Every dollar makes a difference!

Who doesn't love going to the Doctor's Office...........

Every time I mention taking Jack to the Doctor people give me
this expression of sympathy and tell me good luck..... and I am not sure why.

Jack had a FANTASTIC time at his 6 month check up. He thought the paper cover on the exam table was the best toy ever made!

Luckily the Dr. thought it was hilarious :)

I was wrong.
