The living Christmas tree

Yesterday we went to see the living Christmas tree at The First Baptist Church of Huntsville. I was concerned he wouldn't like it but he seemed too. He was amazed by the lights and kept trying to dance to the music. It was so cute! He didn't really cooperate for a picture but this is the best we could do!

We survived

Yesterday Will had his 4 month check up. I was so nervous because he cried for 40 minutes after getting his 2 month shots. He did really well. He didn't even cry after the first shot and he only cried for a few minutes after the second one. I was so glad. I was upset after his first shot
because he cried for so long. Our big boy is now 17 lbs 11 oz and 27 inches long. We did have a touch of fever last night but he slept until 5 am so hopefully he's doing fine. Guess we will see how tonight goes!

A Little Bit of Everything...

It was a crazy weekend around here. Friday, Bill was off work thankfully. We were able to get almost all of our errands done. Saturday my sister, her husband, and her daughter came to visit for the day. We exchanged Christmas presents early. Everyone had a great time. Saturday night we went to a Christmas party. We had a great time. It was really nice to see everyone but we had to leave early. Our little man was an hour past his bedtime and getting a little fussy.

Speaking of our little man, he has gotten back on his regular bedtime schedule!! Thank goodness. We are only getting up once a night so he can eat, usually around 4:30. We aren't quite back to the 5:30-6:30 time frame but we are getting there. His future teeth seem to still be bothering him some but we acquired some Nuby keys that go in the freezer and they seem to be helping a lot. Also, this past week he discovered his feet. Not only discovered them but learned how to put them in his mouth. It is seriously funny. Also, this weekend we had a scare...Mr. Bear (his favorite sleeping companion) had to be washed. I was SERIOUSLY concerned it would not survive the washing machine. He will not go to sleep without this thing. Thankfully, Mr. Bear survived!


Thursday Will goes for his 4 month check up. I am not looking forward to him getting his next round of shots. He cried for so long after the first set. Hopefully, he and I both will survive the second set and he will be just as happy as he is now...

What has happened to my super happy, sleep through the night baby? He as been replaced with a fussy, drooly baby! That's right Will is definitely teething. I didn't know this would happen so soon. I had gotten used to him sleeping from 8:30-5:30. I miss my sleep! Also, he's nursing so much during the day, I can't get anything done. Is this going to happen with every tooth? How long will it last? I hope it's over soon. Until then, Sophie the Giraffe has become his best friend.
