So my wonderful husband surprised me about two months ago with a trip to Cozumel with some good friends of ours. I am very excited to get away with Gary but I am also very anxious about leaving Davis for 4 days. I have never been a fan of flying and now there is so much more to loose. When I start to think about it it makes my heart race and my throat clinch up.....I am so thankful that Gary noticed that we needed a get away to a tropical paradise but I just wish I didn't have to leave my baby.. but then that really wouldn't be a get away would it?? Sigh.. this mama's gonna need a few drinks on the plane so I can relax. My mama will have D for Fri, Sat, Sun, and we get back Monday evening. I have been pumping like a mad woman trying to get enough bottles for him while I'm gone. I'm also taking my pump with me to keep things going...I'm going to TRY and get back in the country with the milk I pump but we'll see how that works out. I'm so worried that D will not be good for my mom. He's never been away from me like this and he is such a mama's boy I think after a day of not seeing me he might start to be a pill. Rest assured there will be lots of cuddle time when I get back! I know I will come back refreshed and revitalized... oh and tan ! But right now my anxiety is getting the best of me. Do you all mind saying a quick prayer for us as we set out Friday morning?? I would greatly appreciate it.
While we are there two of our good friends are going to get married right there on the beach, so exciting! We are thrilled that these two are taking the plunge... and what a beautiful place to do so!

Davis LOVES his dogs! Anytime either one of them is near they catch his attention. I can see them all three being the best of friends... Bella's more of the let him grab on her and lick him type... where as Hank just wants him to play. D is especially fond of Hank.. I think it is because of his black and white coat. These pictures are from the other day when I put Davis in the hamper so i could fold some clothes on the floor.. he loved it and sat in there and watched the dogs run around him. I think he liked it so much because he could sit up really good and could hang on to the sides. It was too cute!!

Hank sniffing him out... I would have died if he had done this when he was really little but Ive loosened up a bit. Boys will be boys
**Disclaimer-D does not usually run around in a white shirt and diaper...we were having a W.T. moment ha ha

Watching Bella and Hank play

Best friends... Hank looks scared.

Happy baby!!

We have Davis's 6 month appointment coming up... do I really have a 6 month old!!?? Crazy how time flies. I weighed D the other night and we are looking at about 17.5 pounds. I'll have the solid stats once we go to his appointment. I seriously cannot believe he is getting so big. He is becoming such a little boy!

We tried green beans last night and D loved them!! YAY! I was so worried that he wasnt going to like his green veggies, but turns out those are one of his favorites so far. Small victory in the mommy world :)

I get so tickled with him when he's eating, he really enjoys meal time. Grabs the spoon, hands in mouth, squealing..... and then cries when its "all gone!"

Making a huge mess at breakfast. after he is all done eating I let him take his spoon and bowl and "practice" making it to his mouth. This is usually the end result.
*Note the applesauce on the side of his head

"Whats this?"

Green Beans... Yumm! We are getting some GREAT use out of the bumbo lately. He eats in it every day and will sit in it while I cook. He loves to beat on the tray and play with his toys.

Anybody have any good baby food recipes they want to share??

little booger!

This is what Davis does now if you put his Bumbo to close to the paper towels.... Crazy boy.

He unrolled about half of it... We have since moved him to another counter where he cant get to anything

And a video of the attack. He was getting mad at this point because he couldnt get to it.
Just some random pictures :)

Baby Food

I decided before I had Davis that I wanted to nurse as long as I could(up to a year) and I wanted to make his baby food. Well we are still going strong in the nursing department so I figured it was time to get to cookin'! I went to publix last weekend and bought some organic carrots and Sweet Potatoes, Ive heard those are the easiest to start out with.

I boiled

and blended

and got a whole lot of this!

Davis absolutely loves both the sweet potatoes and carrots. He gets very upset when they are all gone, its actually pretty funny

Sweet boy

We do those at night and organic applesauce in the morning. Yesterday I had another baby food making session. This time I made Squash and zucchini, sweet potatoes, carrots, and Green beans. We'll see how he likes the "Green" veggies. I let him taste test yesterday and we might have a problem with the green beans....we'll see

So I completely forgot to do Davis 5 month post.... took the pictures but just forgot to post them! shhhh... if you don't tell I wont

All dressed up in his Sunday best :) I think he looks so chunky in this picture

And the comparison shot....
4 months :)

he has started to take notice in his bunny now when we go to take the pictures, here he was trying to eat him. ha ha

*wears size 6-9 month clothes
* Size 3 diapers
* goes to sleep around 7:45-8:00 every night
*STILL wakes up twice a night, sigh
*has the best personality... so sweet and quick to smile
* has started to laugh when we do something funny.... he got going the other night at the beach and I started to laugh and he laughed even harder. So cute!
* LOVES bath time
*Hank and Bella always catch his attention, he loves to watch them play
*Started eating solids.... so far he likes apples, prunes and bananas. I am going to make some carrots and sweet potatoes this weekend and try them. I know they say not to do fruit first but he was having some trouble going potty so we had to try some apples and prunes.
* is really finding his voice, loves to sit and talk to you.
*Gets on all fours, but not sure what to do when he gets there.

everyday is something new, it is so fun to watch him grow and learn. I love this sweet baby more than life itself and cannot imagine our lives without him. I thank the lord for giving me this wonderful gift everyday.

Wrap Up!

We had such a wonderful time at the Cape this weekend. Davis absolutely LOVES the beach, we were on the beach for 5 hours on Saturday. We had a tent set up for shade,so it worked out perfect! He took two naps, played in the water and in the sand. When he got all sandy Gary stripped him down and dipped him in the water. He never cried once, Gary and I joked that maybe we should move to the beach..... I was ready! ha

mamas sweet boy :)

Hey sweet boy!


Daddy and Davis

Wearing Mr.Keith's hat :)

Sunday we headed over to the Boyette's beach house for the annual fourth of July cookout. Always a good time with yummy food!! Davis again was the perfect little attendant. Everyone just loved him and he was loving he attention. Gary and I said all weekend how lucky we are to have such a sweet baby, he is so easy going.

Sweet baby hiney

Hey there blue eyes!

Davis and Mims enjoying the nice weather

taking a break from the festivities!

We headed back Monday and spent the rest of the day unpacking(you sure do take a lot of stuff when you have a little one!) I cant wait to take Davis back to the Cape, ....it will be so fun to watch him grow up on the beaches that his Daddy grew up on. Special memories

We started solids on tuesday and Davis absolutely LOVES his new food choices! We started with apples and have since had prunes, and avocados. He gets so excited that he squeal when he sees the spoon headed towards him. I plan on making most of D's food, this weekend I am going to make some sweet potatoes.... we'll see how they turn out! It also is helping him space out his feedings a little bit more, which is nice for me. but the boy still loves his mama time :) and I love it too!
First bite.....


and Bath time!
Rub a dub dub another picture of the boy in the tub!

Beach Time!!

We are headed to the Cape this weekend! I cannot wait, it will be so nice to get away for a few days and get to spend time with my elusive husband ;)

Excuse the quality of these next few pictures... they were taken with my BB.

Sweet Boy fell asleep after eating last night. Chunky little thing

I got these little plaques at target yesterday for 7 bucks, I just love the way they look in my kitchen

And last but certainly not least a picture of the sweet boy in the tub! He is getting a little harder to bathe here lately... last night I had Gary come watch him for a second while I checked on dinner. All of the sudden i hear coughing and Gary saying "you OK buddy?" and patting his back. Davis was just fine, he rolled off of his seat and took in a gulp of water. He was back to smiling by the time I saw him. Gary looked at me and said " He could have drowned!" I responded yeah that's why you NEVER leave a baby alone....glad he saw first hand how easy it can happen. It will make him cautious!
