Life is good




I wrote a super long post yesterday with lots of pictures and a video and it looks like it didn't take for some reason! Arrrrg. So it seems like we keep getting busier. Nash is eating solids 3 times a day (1.5-2 jars per feeding) and he's getting his 2 top teeth in! They haven't actually broken through yet, but they're right there. Nash giggles like crazy when we play tug-o-war with him... that's the picture of him pulling on the camera cord. And the other picture is of us at the craft beer festival downtown last weekend. (That's water on his head, not sweat.) I got a part time job that I went to for the first time last night. Ray was home with Nash, but it still was not fun to be away. And now I can't remember what else I wrote yesterday so I'll have to post again later!

6 months stats


Today was a big day. We went for Nash's 6 month vaccines and got his new measurements! My arms must be getting strong because I had no idea he weighs as much as he does! The little man weighs 19 lbs., 5oz. That's 4 lbs. more than his weight at the 4 month check up, and puts him into the 70th percentile. His height is 27.5 inches, 80th percentile. After that good news (and a great new doctor) we decided to try some new things tonight. We used the finger brush to polish Nash's little teeth, and, inspired by Gabe, we got out the high chair for Nash to sit in while he ate his dinner. It was great! And I love these smiley pictures :)

Bringing Hippie Back



I love this little shirt on Nash! What could be better than a tye-dyed shirt with a euro-style racecar on it? Since he tried Macaroni & Cheese baby food for the first time today, I'm compelled to make an official list of the foods he's tried. Sweet potatoes, pears, applesauce, turkey and rice dinner, chicken and sweet potatoes, pear and mango, mac and cheese, graden veggies, peas, blueberry applesauce, challah, french toast, black beans, red beans, pickles, mashed potatoes, carrots, squash, and apricots and mixed fruit. So that might not be all inclusive, but it's a good start.

Sitter



Nash sits! Not for long, but he's getting the hang of it. Unfortunately I took these pictures on the floor about 30 seconds before he fell back and banged his noggin. Bad mommy.

Eebee and lots of new clothes and ebaying



Nash is sitting up! I'm not doing a good job about writing because he's actually been sitting up for a few days. Still with some assistance, and definitely not near anything sharp or hard he could fall on. Because he falls. But still, sitting is cool. We all like to do it from time to time. A million other things are happening. All of his clothes up to 6 months are too tight so thank goodness for Maeme who so generously buys Nash adorable clothes! And he has an Eebee doll! This thing is awesome. There are shows on demand with Eebee and Nash watches them attentively. We have also been watching this crazy auction on ebay for a bottle of beer from the 1800's which is now up to over $300,000. And we're going out later to get tickets so we can win the 109 million dollar lottery. And Nash's new favorite food is pineapple pear baby food. Oh and he's published! I'm going to take a picture of his book now to post. Ok I'm back and you've already seen the picture. I guess that's about it for now.

Nash for lunch


I'm still going through pictures from vacation. Here's another one I came across from camp Jeep. Nash was minding his own business napping in a shady spot, but someone else had the same idea. Lots of scary wildlife in central VA.

GOOD TO BE HOME!


We've been gone for so long, it was great to get back here and play with Mocha and sleep in our own crib/bed... especially for Nash, who slept in the closet for the week at Callaway! It because affectionately known as "the Harry Potter closet." So we were at Camp Jeep for 3 days, and Nash was braver than I was. He stayed in the car while Dad went through the z-ditch, and slept a lot on some other bumpy trails. Camp Jeep is a great time! The place is swarming with kids, and lots of babies in Jeep stroller. Of course Nash fit right in :) It'll be even more fun when he's a little older and can go on some of the hikes and get strapped into the jumpy/bungee thingy.
Then there was Callaway. A week in the great outdoors, swimming in the lake and the pool everyday, watching the circus, strolling through the Butterfly House, herb gardens, horticulture center, walks on paths and by the lake. It was awesome. Nash saw the performance of the 3-4 year old group singing, "oh I wish I was a kid from Callaway, oh I wish I was a kid from Callaway! I'd go flying through the air... whoops! I lost my underwear! Oh I wish I was a kid from Callaway!" We got some great videos of Nash laughing, so look for links to that in the left column. Otherwise, I think I'm just going to post tons of pictures. Good to be home!
