SO as you can probably tell from the radio silence summers are busy around here! The Little Dude is now four months old! He has three teeth pushing through one of which is towards the back of his mouth (not fun!)… He’s still working on the rolling over thing, I expected him to have figured it out by now being as he started almost from the beginning turning on his side… but still he can’t seem to get his little arm out from under him.. He has started trying to sit up more and is now more actively playing with his toys… I got him a toy like the Sofia Girraffe it looks like a mushroom with a loop on its head, its very soft and squeaks he seems to like it alot its made out of natural rubber and all natural paint.. He also just got an organic cotton Pear rattle that is a big hit.. Though his favorite things of all are just plain old blankets 🙂 he like rubbing them on his face and bunching them in his hands! He’s getting so big! He’s up to 15 lbs! The cloth diapering has been going wonderfully!!! I love our G Diapers!!! They’re so easy and very cute!! and then we have our homemade flip style covers with the bicycles that we use out of the house.. We just got a new all in one Ava diaper that has matching biyclces 🙂 and we got some cloth wipes that we are going to start using when we’re on the go, which is alot! We are wedding photographers and that keeps us on the go alot especially in the summer time.. We are prime examples that you can cloth diaper on the go!! We also just bought two wet bags one for diapers and the other for the wipes.. The wipe solution that works the best for us is one I got off of Zanny Zebras which has soap, oil, water, tea tree and lavender.. I don’t always use the tea tree and I make a smaller amount for the diaper bag.. I also use the same mix for homemade disposable wipes for home use, they’re great!!! I mix 1/4 cup water with 1/4 tbs apricot oil, Dr Branors baby soap, one drop tea tree oil, and three drops lavender!


Three Month’s…

Happy three month birthday baby boy! We love you oh so very much!!!!! You are growing soooooo fast! You get better at rolling every day! I know it won’t be long and you’ll be a little Rolly Polly 🙂 YOu are so precious to me! I am grateful everyday for you and I thank God so much that he blessed me with you!!! I hope you like your present I thought it was quite appropriate that they came out with The Lorax right around when you were born… I love trees and I think you too 🙂

Happy Fourth…

Si rode in his first parade for the fourth of July and got to see his first fireworks on the third (he slept through them)… We had alot of fun for the fourth and he was very cute in the parade! We rode on the American Legion Float that Grandpa drove while Nana gave out popsicles and candy! We also got to see Daddy for almost a whole week in a row! which was nice after over two weeks of not having him home (sad) unfortunately he had to go back to work though (sadder) so it might be awhile before we can see him again… We also celebrated my birthday on fridaySi went to his first Bluegrass show, he seemed to like it 🙂 just like his Mama…

Rollin…Rollin…Rollin… Get That Baby Rollin

The little man has now started to roll over, he hasn’t quite mastered the art of getting hi other arm out from under him once he rolls onto it, but I have no doubt that before long he will! sometimes I help either by moving his arm for him or by putting my hand at his feet so he can push him self up and pull the arm out.. once he does that he then starts to work on holding his head up, I think it won’t be long before he’ll be scooting with his head up! He a little man that’s going somewhere… he’s always on the move and that’s saying something since he isn’t actually mobile 🙂 It takes a wee bit of littlemanhandling to get him to hold still and nurse… I can hardly imagine what it will take when he can move on his own…


Daddy Gets a New Car!!!

SO we just found out that Daddy got  approved to lease a new Honda CRV!!! We are all very happy! We’ve never had a “new” car! I think this totally helps make up for the broken down car that has kept him from getting to come home for a week plus! and for this craZy fire heatwave, plus it makes my aching, throbbing teeth, that might need root canals, feel better too 🙂 We get to see it tomorrow and ride in it, plus the Daddy that’s going to drive it home! Right now I think they’re both tied for first on which one we’re more excited to see Daddy or the CRV, it looks like Daddy’s pulling forward slowly in the polls (it has been a week!)… So exciting!!

To Vaccinate or Not To Vaccinate…

First off the argument that he can’t go to public school without having all of his Immunizations is null-in-void nowadays you just have to sign what Aviva Jill Romm calls the “Bad Mommy Papers” which says that you are at fault if something happens to your child as a result of not being vaccinated… but no one else has to sign for responsibility if something happens as a result of getting the Vaccines??? Some of the basics I agree with the ones that have been around long enough to have been followed from infancy through to old age death… but all these new ones that we haven’t been able to follow that far because the first kids to get them are still kids! Those ones I’m not too sure about! They even have a shot against Chicken Pocks nowadays, Now maybe I’m just old school, but I got the pocks and it was ok?? but now that we have a vaccine against them I almost have to give it to my son because he is way less likely to come across it till he gets older, which is when it can have much more problems?? I think that man has just interfered with Gods creation too much.. yes I do believe that he gave us the knowledge to create these vaccines, but he also gave us very strong immune systems.. butwe have to allow them to develop, not just pump disease through our systems in order to prevent them… I don’t know I see some good points and just as many bad ones?????

An Ode To Daddy Dude…

Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, We love you so… We love how you make us smile how you hold us with so much support.. We love your beard, we love to pull it in times of joy and anger or when we just want to play! Oh how funny your faces are when there’s a diaper to be changed or where cloth diapers are concerned.. Happy Fathers Day… I hope we make your life that much more precious by the love we have for you!

Shots SUCK!!!

So yeah I’ve heard all the pros of getting your kid immunized, but in the end something that makes your son unhappy and has the potential of a 101 fever is not something I like!!!! We got the DTaP/IPV/Hib Shots yesterday {Nana said he did great, Mama didn’t get to be there I was going through my own form of torture getting an IUD put in} and we still have to decide whether or not he’s going to get the PCV and RV Vacines! How much crap that we willingly put into our children is too much??? I just don’t know! The Little Dude is doing great though! He’s quite the little soldier! I just have to figure out the next year of shots and which ones he’s going to get.. I would love anyones views on this { but please give me more then ‘its the greatest thing in medicine’ I’ve heard that one enough!}

Two Months…

Happy Two Month Birthday Little Dude! We love you soooooo much!!!!! In the last two months you’ve learned to roll from your back to your side ( not quite all the way over because you can’t get your arm out of the way yet, but close), you’ve started teething (evident by all the drool), you’ve gotten way bigger! your eyes have picked a color; hazel (steel grey, or other names, since they are like mine and grandpas and they change color based on mood or what you’re wearing) you’ve learned to scoot (almost right out of mamas hands more then once!) you also smile and are on the verge of laughing! Its been an eventful two months and I loved every minute of it!! Mama Loves You!!!
