Another Tooth!

Yep, the other front toother popped through last night. Hopefully we're done for awhile, because it's hell for poor Halen. I enjoy the extra snuggle time, but my floors are real dirty.

New Tooth

That's right, the front left tooth has broken through the gums and is ready to bite anyone who gets close... So watch out! I am not even going to attempt to take a picture, due to the extreme bite risk. Instead, I will post this picture of my hula hooping wonder.

Yum, hairy nipples make the best milk. Dan needs to get with it and share in the joys of breastfeeding.

Breakfast Of Champions

I didn't even like whipped cream, but I like this stuff!
I gave Halen a bowl of oatmeal. He pulled it straight to his lap and went to town! Then he got disco fever and had to point up for a minute. Then back to oatmeal. He loves feeding himself now. He thinks he's getting too big to be spoon fed. His first words are going to be, "I can do it myself." Well, maybe that's far fetched, it'll probably be more like "dog" or "Bruce." Yes, the dogs are way more important that "momma" and "dadda." I have accepted that.

8 Months

Halen turned 8 months old on Thursday. He weighed in at 24 pounds and is 31 inches long. He's just off the charts for weight and way off the charts for length. 31 inches is the length for an 11 month old in the 95th percentile.

It's a bird. It's a plane. It's Halen man!!!

Chocolate Silk

You know how it says "not to be used as infant formula" on your Silk containers??? Well, I always read that and thought, 'duh, who would give this to a baby?' Well, today I saw a woman pouring chocolate silk into a bottle, for a baby who was somewhere between 3 and 6 months old.

A Little Ditty About Dogs And Babies

This morning Halen took a morning poop, and quite a large bit of poop it was. Usually, I immediately take the diapers to the toilet, shake the poop off, and flush it (cloth diapers you know). This morning, Halen was tired and needing to nurse and nap. So, I folded the diaper in half and laid it on the floor to get to it after I put him down for his nap. We came to the living room and played and nursed till he fell asleep. When I went back into his room to lay him down for his nap, the diaper was open and licked clean. Yummy!

Circus Baby!

It looks like he's having fun with his daddy, and he is, but he's really that happy because he's that much closer to THE FAN! Yep, his favoritest thing in the world, and he got to look right at it, eye level. Who wouldn't be that happy?

Just Having Some Fun

watching the laundry is always great fun!
