Finally back at the computer and linking up with Laura! It’s obviously been way too long as you can see by how many weeks I am behind. In order to shorten this post somewhat, I am going to list my captions for each week, and the photos will be on here below the captions as smaller images. I have been keeping up with it, and posting my photos regularly on Facebook, which I can do from my phone, because yes – all my photos so far have been phone photos. It’s handy for me, and allows me to post to Facebook as soon as I get the chance. We have been pretty preoccupied with Bean here, some health issues that I will explain in another post. So for now, onto the photo catch up!
Day 8: Bean's first taste of avocado. He made a sour face with every spoonful!
Day 9: Enough said. You get the idea. This day can never repeat itself.
Day 10: The calm before the storm. Happily playing in his around we go.
Day 11: Very sicky boy. Not usually such a cuddlebug, but he just wanted to be held and close all day.
Day 12: Still recouperating from his illness, he fell asleep all on his own while laying on the sofa next to me. That never happens. Poor baby.
Day 13: He still wasn't drinking much, but he certainly demanded his cereal and bananas!
Day 14: Bean did not want to nap when I tried to get him to take one, so I had him do tummy time instead. He quickly tired of that and took his nap. ;)
Day 15, part 1: Jasper just had to get under the blankets and get cozy...Day 15, part 2: ...he succeeded!
Day 16, part 1: We went out clothing shopping and Bean was trying to remove his hood...the wrong direction.... Day 16, part 2: ...he finally got the idea the hood doesn't go that way. So stinkin' cute!
Day 17: I finally got Bean's laundry folded! Thanks to his 1.5 hour nap, this basket finally got dealt with after sitting unfolded for a good 2-3 weeks! I just kept adding to it and taking out of it.
Day 18: Late night snack. I should be sleeping, but I was too busy eating these...
Day 19: Picked up this outfit for Bean for our professional family pictures session. It's a 6-9 month though, but it was on clearance for $15 (originally $35!), and I had been eyeing it for quite some time. The problem is he is still in 3-6/6 month clothes, so it might be huge on him! *UPDATE – I was able to find it in 3-6, so I returned the 6-9, but now he is gaining weight well again, so I better schedule that session immediately!*
Day 20: New sweater for me! There was another one I liked better, but they didn't have my size. I really miss my off white soft cozy sweater I used to wear, so I needed to get a new one!
Day 21, part 1: Thunderbolts banquet was western theme this year. Bean wore his cow outfit and at the banquet we were given hats and we used the mustaches for something. Couldn't resist trying them on Bean! LOL Day 21, part 2: Me and my cowboy...literally, he has a cow print onesie on and a cow face bib. Thunderbolts Banquet, Wild West Theme.
Day 22: I did not feel like cooking. We had a late night before with the banquet, and Bean not sleeping well, so I was tired and all I wanted was some comfort food delivered to my doorstep.
Day 23: Bean is 7 months old today! Time is flying...I feel like I need to start planning his 1st birthday already (because it takes me so long to do things these days...)!
Day 24: Bean's first real blood test. He didn't cry until the third (!) vial, and then I think he was just tired of being held still. The lab ladies were wonderful with him, singing songs and making him smile.
Day 25: Bean's new "rattle", LOL. He was having so much fun with this.
Day 26: I put Bean in his around-we-go while I ate dinner (it was a late dinner), and all of a sudden it got really quiet....this is what I found. This is what happens when he doesn't get a short evening nap.
Day 27: My aunt having some fun with Bean at my grandmother's house. She definitely always gets a smile and giggle out of him! (Sorry for the poor quality...it was dim, but my flash made them look horrible.)
Day 28: See that amount? 5 whole oz! Earlier? He drank 6 oz! The 5 oz is becoming a little more common than it used to be. Some feedings are still small, but hopefully we're getting somewhere now and he will catch up with weight gain! *UPDATE – He hasn’t been drinking these amounts again lately, but like I said, I will do a Bean update post as soon as I can.*
Day 29: Finally had to change my Scentsy scent. Hazelnut Latte finally lost its strength, now melting Sticky Cinnamon Bun and I LOVE it!
Day 30: Bean's appointment with the GI specialist was today. We have to give him stronger medicine, switch to all formula and concentrate it a little more, hence the pump - I will no longer be needing it very soon, and I'm kind of happy about that because it will free up some time for me.
Day 31: A perfect demonstration of just how fat and lazy Jasper is....he can't even sit up/stand to drink his water!
Day 32: I don't know what was up with him tonight, but he had his tongue sticking out all night long!
Day 33: I guess officially this was taken on day 34, but it's my photo for this day. Someday I'll start getting to bed before this time...
Day 34: The in-laws came for the weekend and brought these donuts from Dunkin. Big mistake...now I want them all the time!
Day 35: With the in-laws here I was finally able to catch up on laundry. My linen closet hasn't been this full of clean towels in months!
And finally…week 6!:
Day 36: Our very own "Mr. Thomas". :) (Watch Chronicles of Narnia if you don’t know what I mean…)
Day 37: Bath night for Bean! First time in his little ducky robe. :)
Day 38: Bean woke up from his nap in the swing, but was still tired, so he decided to continue his nap on me. He pretty much never naps on me anymore, so even though it's not ideal, the snuggles were nice. :)
Day 39: He was really pushing up on his arms this morning...now if we could just get the back half going, we'd have a mobile baby!
Day 40: He really wanted those socks! Launched himself forward from his daddy's lap!
Day 41: He was on his back when I left him on there to go put away a few dishes. This is what I came back to - somehow we keep missing him roll back to belly! Third time now!
Day 42: Bean, Daddy, and Grover hung out a lot today. I got some shopping done. (Really, Bean was making lip smacking faces at Hubby whenever he took a bite of his sandwich...I tried capturing that, but the little stinker wouldn't do it for the camera!)
So, now that I’m all caught up, sorry for the long post! Hopefully I will be able to get on the computer a little more and participate in this more on a weekly basis instead of a monthly basis. If you are here from the link up, thanks for stopping by! Leave me a comment and let me know so I can be sure to check out your blog as well. Also, thanks for looking at/reading the whole post! Hope everyone has a happy Sunday and a great week ahead!
