6 Month Checkup!

The Stats:
weight 19 lbs. 4oz. (85th-ish percentile)
height 28 in. (97th percentile)
head not sure the exact number but i think it was the 90th percentile

We got a good report from the doctor. He only cried for a minute during his shots. Beckett is obviously going to take after his daddy in the height department. We are going to try to do baby food a bit more often and she also said i could introduce a sippy cup! HUH? We will see about that one.....I gave him tylenol last night since he was a bit fussy following his shots and he slept like a rock, too bad derek says we can't do that everynight. I don't think it sounds like a bad idea-we are still adjusting to day light savings time and bedtime has been a litte more of a challenge lately. I hope everyone is enjoying "Good Friday!"
Pics coming soon!

Big News!!

We two exciting things to share today!
1. For the past couple of weeks we have really been pushing Beckett to take a bottle and I can now say he is taking one! He still "plays" with it for about 10 minutes but he eventually takes it. Yippee! This is huge as far as i am concerned because it means Derek and i can hopefully leave him overnight soon. I would love a night at the Alluvian (hint, hint-derek)
2. In bigger news, Beckett's new girlfriend was born today at 10:45am. Livie McMaster arrived this morning and so far we have had so much fun getting to buy girl clothes!! She is super cute and looks a lot like her brother did when he was born. We are very excited that she is finally here!!!

For my Aunt Catdog!

Beckett wants to dedicate this picture especially to his aunt cath whose is probably knee deep in adding machine ticker tape right now:)

6 Months

It is hard to believe Beckett is already six months old! In honor of his 1/2 birthday i thought i would try to come up with 6 fun facts about him.
1. He loves paper-especially post-it notes. He totally gets that from me. I am obsessed with them!
2. He loves to watch our dog Koda. If Koda comes in the room he immediately becomes fixated on her.
3. He can sit up pretty good on his own, but is not a big fan of rolling from his back to his stomach.
4. He still hates a bottle-we are working on that! And he is never taken a pacifier. This in turns leads to me pretty much having to be with him around the clock. Don't get me wrong-i love him to peices, but a night off sounds glorious these days!
5. He recently started to love taking baths. He just kicks and splashes the whole time!
6. He thinks everyone is his personal johnny jump up. If you let him stand in your lap he automatically starts bouncing.
And one to grow on....
7. His favorite time of the day is when derek comes home from work. He lights up as soon as derek comes in the room!

Causey's Big Day!

Here are a few pictures from Causey's big day! I can't believe she is already a year old-time flies! It seems like just yesterday her mom was sitting at home thinking she might be pregnant forever!


We had Beckett's baptism back in early Feb. He was great through the whole thing-mainly because he was asleep! I was so nervous that he would wake up when we handed him to the preacher and totally wig out, but thankfully he didn't! We had a family lunch at our house afterwards-hence the cake.
