Happy 1/2 Birthday E!


I simply cannot believe that my little man is already 6 months old! Where has the time gone? I look at his newborn pictures and get sad and wish he was still that little sometimes...but then I think of waking up every 2 hours to feed him and all the things that come along with a newborn and I feel I am enjoying this stage a lot more. Having a newborn is wonderful and exciting but Ethan is starting to really show his personality and laugh so much and it's just a fun time with him. We couldn't be more in love with him.

I'm a bad mommy and took him to get his 6 month shots today. I did it today because I knew we were leaving for vacation this weekend and that gave me some hope....something to look forward to after seeing E get his shots :( He absolutely screamed and this time was by far the worst and when I looked at him I just saw complete horror in his eyes and he honestly couldn't breathe for a minute. It was horrible!!! Plus, she did the first shot and the liquid never came out so she had to poke him again! So he got 3 shots in the one leg this time instead of 2 and then another shot on his other leg. It was just horrible and it didn't go as fast as the other times. He will have an even bigger welt on his leg this time...and don't worry Grandpa and Grandma Petke, it's not a tumor, lol!

Our big boy is 18lbs. 8oz...he's in the 75% tile for his weight. He is 28.5" long, 95% tile for length! He is going to be a tall boy....perfect for the NBA ;) I prefer him to play either baseball or basketball....football is too rough for me! Golf of course would be most preferred :) Of course we aren't going to force him to play any sports...we're just gonna let him be him and not put any expectations on him...that's a big pet peeve of mommy's.

So, doc says I can give him a fruit and veggie a day so I'm thinking fruit w/ a little cereal in the mornings and then a vegetable for dinner at night. I think I'll try applesauce next which I'm sure he'll love.

That's all for now...we leave for Lake Ann in 2 more days...cannot wait! Doesn't look like they have internet there so I will be sure and post all about our trip when we return.

The pic of E was taken today...6 months old...he looks like a toddler :(

Love to all,
Keri

What a beautiful little man. He won't remember the shots luckily.
God has given us blessing upon blessing with you, Jeremy, and Ethan.
