Today was all about the babies in my life! My 6 month old and our new little "neice" Ella Jean Krauth! We woke up and got going right away today- which is unlike our usual sleep in, stay in our p.j.'s until 11, lounge around & play at the house Thursdays! Baths, breakfast, and out the door by 9:45 a.m. It's a lot of work to get 2 little ones and myself ready in the mornings! We dropped off Nolan to play with Payton and Brady and then Heath and I were off to his 6 month well check!
All is looking good and we got some advice about his frequent spitting up and issues with the other end too! The Dr. recommended that we try soy formula for a week or two and see if that makes Heath feel better. He is such a happy guy when he is not puking or plugged up, so we are just trying to help him feel more comfortable and increase those joyful hours of the day! We are praying that this will work! He's just been a little trickier to figure out than Nolan! They are each so unique and special in their own ways!!
So here are his stats at 6 months and 5 days:
Height: 27 1/2 inches @ 85%
Weight: 17 pounds 9 ounces @ 55 %
Head Circumference: 44.3 centimeters @ 60%
After Heath's appointment it was off to pick up Nolan, pick up Mark from his crazy busy day at work, pick up lunch, and head over to the hospital to meet little Ella Krauth! Our good friends Ernie and Kim Krauth had a beautiful LITTLE girl early this morning! We have been waiting for her arrival and were so happy that her mommy actually went into labor on her due date!
It is wonderful to finally have friends who now have kids! We were by far the first of all of our friends to enter into the parenting world. So now it will be so nice to have another tiny one around and especially a GIRL!
We look forward to praying for her sweet self and loving and spoiling her just like her mommy and daddy do for Nolan & Heath. She is so stinkin' adorable! Congrats Ernie & Kim! We love you guys!
And now after a busy morning, both boys are sleeping, taking a late nap- woo hoo! And I finally have a minute to myself. Blogging, watching some GH, and drinking a Coke! I probably have another 30 minutes...then on to feed Heath his first veggies, fold yet another load of laundry, and cap off the evening with Nolan's swimming lessons! Oh, the life of a busy mom! Wouldn't trade it for anything!
Last day of school tomorrow- then Summer Break! Yes!
