Valentine's Day

Over the past few years I have become a fan of Valentine's Day.  We try our hardest to show each other every day how much we love each other, but I think Valentine's is just a fun day to make a little extra effort in telling someone how much you love them.  Plus, who doesn't like candy, flowers and date nights with your significant other??  

Addi had SO much fun this Valentine's.  They made cute little boxes at school to put their cards and candy in.  She loved pulling out each card and letting me tell her who it was from.  She kept saying "I tell my friends happy valentimes today".  I asked her if she had fun at her party and she said "I ate doughnuts and they were so yummy!"  So cute!  Jack's teacher sent me the above picture of him during the day Friday.  He's been battling an ear infection, so it made my heart happy that he was all smiles!

Brad really isn't into making elaborate dinner plans, so we just attempted to go to Olive Garden, but we did not want to wait an hour and a half to eat, so instead we went to a new pizza place in town.  We still had to wait 45 minutes for our pizza, but at least we were able to sit down at a table, talk and have an appetizer.  We went to McDonald's for an ice cream cone and milkshake for dessert.  It was a great night!

6 Months Old

In six more months we will be celebrating this precious little boy's 1st birthday - crazy!  He's such a happy baby and always seems so content.  I think two little teethies are about to come in because everything goes straight to his mouth for him to chew on.  It won't be too long, I know!
Weight: I'm guessing somewhere between 18 lbs.  We go for his 6 month check up next week, so I will have to update it then
Length: Not sure on this one either
Eating:He drinks four 8oz bottles.  He's eating oatmeal mixed with fruit for breakfast, fruit or veggie for lunch and usually a fruit and a veggie for dinner. 
Sleeping:  After bragging about how great of a sleeper he is to someone last Monday, he began to wake up some in the middle of the night every night last week.  He either rolls on his stomach and begins to whimper or his pappy falls out of his mouth.  He's also been tee-teeing through his diaper, so I guess i'm going to either have to switch diaper brands or make it a habit of changing him right before I go to bed.  He always falls asleep during his last bottle, so i'm sure this is the reason why his diaper overflows.  He goes to sleep around 6:30/7:00 and wakes up at 5:45.  He usually takes two good naps that last anywhere between 1 and 2 hours.  His teacher says he's the best sleeper in their class - ha!
Likes: Eating, sitting up so he can see everything, playing in his jumper, looking in mirrors, his sissy and he LOVES the cat - his eyes follow her wherever she goes.
Dislikes: Being on his tummy, and he really dislikes when you don't feed him fast enough :)

Work It

 I was off work the majority of last week due to the little snowstorm that happened here in Alabama. I needed to go into work to get a few things done since it was month end.  Since the daycare was closed, I had no choice but to bring this little munchkin along with me...

Brad's parents watched little man b/c I didn't think I could get anything done at work if I had both of them there with me.  She was pretty good (for the most part).  She really wanted to help me work.  I have two computer screens and she kept saying that one of them was hers and the other one was mine.  

After I finished what I had to get done, we went down to Build-A-Bear.  This was our first visit and she picked out a yellow pony and named it Sunshine.   Her favorite part was giving her pony a bath.  She would have stayed there all afternoon if I let her.

And yes, my daughter is wearing a little boy's t-shirt.  She's OBSESSED with Jake and the Neverland Pirates ( or "Pilates" as she says).
