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…
Last week, we made our annual trek to St. George to spend a day at Staheli Farm.
Since Grace and Char both had early soccer games, we headed up for the afternoon. The girls were amazed as soon as we walked in. They had skeletons on the cylo, and the Sanderson sisters were hanging out with Wick'a Dee Witch.
As usual, the girls ran straight for the rubber duck races. Char stopped to take a quick peek at the geese first.
Perry loved watching the ducks float back and forth as Grace and Char flooded their streams with water. She would chase them from one side to the next.
When they spotted the slides into the corn kernels, the girls beelined it in that direction. Perry loves corn and instantly tried eating some. Once she got over the fact that they weren't for dinner, she had a blast playing in the kernels.
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…
