Our Last Baby is ONE!!

We made it! Our last baby is one year old.

I remember being in the hospital when he was born like it was yesterday. I can close my eyes and be right back in that hospital bed, fighting to keep my eyes open and taking two hour intervals with Isaac. We'd switch off between napping and holding the baby. It felt so good to come home and have our family together. The girls were all enamored with him, and nothing has changed.

 This year has gone insanely fast.

When we found out we were having a boy after three girls, I was pretty terrified. I had no idea what to expect or how to even dress a boy. I always thought having girls was so fun, because you got to buy them cute clothes and accessories, but having a boy would be so boring in that department. I've found my way, and now I love picking out cute little outfits for him, and don't worry, I've spent just as much on his wardrobe as I always did on the girls!
Everyone always asks if having a boy is different. I always answer…

Big Boy {Nine Months Old}

Bro Bro is nine months old! I can't even believe it. He's now been on the outside longer than he was on the inside.

He's still the happiest, most smiley baby around. Any time he makes eye contact with any of us, he just lights up, and he has a huge toothy grin now. Kid just got his eighth tooth! He's still drooling like a maniac, and everything he touches goes right in to his mouth.
He is currently weighing in at twenty pounds, eight ounces and is twenty-eight and a half inches long. (Grace was 22.5 lbs - Charley was 18.5 lbs - Perry was 18 lbs, they were all 27.5 inches)
He is wearing mostly twelve month sizes in clothing and is between size two and three in shoes. He's still in size four diapers and will be for a while.

Brother has finally started eating pureed baby foods but only by the pouch. He doesn't want you to feed him with a spoon, because that's baby stuff. His favorite is Happy Baby's banana, sweet potato, and papaya. He also enjoys strawbe…

The Smiliest Guy {Seven Months Old}

Our little smiley guy is seven months old today. We're on the downhill slope to his first birthday, and I'm not sure I'm ready for it.

I'm not going to lie. I couldn't wait for him to get to this age. Isaac was so paranoid about every sound and movement the baby made after his first boy was born, that he had me paranoid, too. First, we were worried that he wasn't making eye contact. Then he wasn't smiling. Then he didn't laugh out loud. I remember thinking when he was teeny tiny that I couldn't wait for him to be bigger, so I knew that he was OK. Well, guess what? He's just fine and does all of those things plus more. He also tries to talk to us in long sing-song noises, but he hasn't made any distinct mama or dada sounds just yet. 

This big boy can sit up on his own now, which is so fun. He loves to sit on the floor and play with his toys, and he lights up when you call him "big boy". When he's on his belly on the floor, he s…

Last Week...

Picture of the Week: Traditional 'Baby in a Pumpkin' Picture

Bro Bro got his first two teeth!

He continued to sleep in his DockATot in our bed and always in his Zipadee Zip.

He napped at work. I always have to keep a burp cloth under his head, because he spits up a lot.

He squealed and hung out in his bouncer after nap time.

We played outside, and Bro enjoyed hanging in the stroller, while sisters rode their bikes.

Uncle Dan, Auntie Andrea, and Piper came to visit from Ohio, so we had to get a picture of the babies together.

Brother was all smiles at work on Wednesday.

Perry helped feed him bananas, but then he wanted to hold them on his own.
