Another Toof!

Sweet Boy!

Working on cutting his 2nd toof last week!

His new thing... destroying his bumpers!

Help Me!

Baylor got his 2nd tooth on Sunday. Everything seems to be changing so fast now. He pulled himself up once in his crib yesterday and has been on the verge all day today on all of our furniture.

We had to make a trip back to see Dr. M yesterday... Last Friday Baylor woke up with a nasty nose and that was about it. Then over the weekend developed a cough, wheezing, and a low-grade fever. Jonathan I took him first thing yesterday morning. He has another ear infection. This time in his left ear and a little case of the croup. He's not "barking" like a typical croup patient, but is hoarse. We sure hope our Little Man starts feeling better soon. He is so pitiful!

Yesterday Baylor officially started crawling which is also my Daddy's Birthday! He's been up on his knees for a few weeks now rocking and even crawled about 2 feet infront of Jonthan earlier this week. We knew it was going to happen soon! When I picked him up from MiMi's yesterday afternoon she said he did it for a quick sec at her house so of course I put him down on the floor to see if he would do it for Mama and he did twice. When we got home he didn't stop!

He's already been scooting across the whole living and dining room and we've had to keep a close eye on him. Now it's time to really baby-proof the house!

What a special day... I know my Daddy would've loved to see Baylor crawl. I'm sure he's celebrating his Birthday with Ashley and Jesus and looking down on our sweet boy!

Happy Birthday, Daddy! I love and miss you very much!

8 Months...Yesterday!

Ahhhhhh 8 Months, already?! Where has my baby gone??? I know he will ALWAYS be my baby, but still. I know I say it ALL the time I just can't believe how quickly time passes by. Baylor's been sick this week with a viral infection. He's FINALLY starting to feel better.

Here are a few pictures I took of him yesterday when he was home sick. You can tell he doesn't feel so well.

8 Months!

What are you up to these days, Baylor?!

-You are constantly up on your knees rocking. You will attempt to put a arm out and move a leg,but you end up falling. You will have the crawling thing down very soon.

-You got your first tooth yesterday (8 months to the day). We're pretty sure your gonna cut the one next to it very soon.

-You love all your food so far beside green beans.

-You tried grits when we were at the beach for the 4th. You weren't impressed. I don't think I would be either. They were plain.

-You weighed 19lb 7oz at your Doctor Appt on Monday. You have a viral infection, but thankfully your starting to feel better.

-You also started sitting on your own yesterday. You start in your crawling/knee position then turn yourself over. Big Boy!

-We (Daddy) lowered your bed for the first time this past Sunday.

-Since your 7 month update you've cut back on a bottle. You take 3 a day now.

-You love drinking out of an open-faced cup ever since you tried it at the beach over the 4th of July.

-You still sleep from 6-7pm (usually 6) til right before 7 in the morning. You take 2-3 naps a day. At daycare Mimi says you sleep 2 hours in the morning and 2 in the afternoon. At home you seem to take shorter naps. 1 hour in the morning, 1 hour nap after lunch, then a cat nap (30 mins) before Daddy gets home.

-You are saying "Maaaaama" more. We are pretty sure you've been trying it for a while and now it's more clear. It's usually when your mad or crying that you call for me.

-When you get upset sometimes you make the funniest noise... I call it a "growl" to let us know your not happy.

-You are OBSESSED with my phone and you actually called Daddy(and someone else) the other day while playing with it.

-You are no longer sitting in your tub to take baths. Right now we lay a towel down in the tub and have you sit on it so you don't slip. We need to make a trip to target to get a blow up Duck or another blow up tub for you ASAP.

Baylor's First Fourth of July!

We celebrated Baylor's First 4th of July at the beach! The 3 of us and my Mom went down to Seagrove first thing Saturday morning. We were on the beach by 10. PERFECT timing! We stayed at the same little place we stayed at in May. Jonathan and I found it a year or two ago. It's a perfect location and on the beach. It's less than a mile up the road from Seaside and that's where we spent most of our time. We spent the first day on the beach there. Then enjoyed a few meals (Bud and Alley's, Pizza Bar, Bud and Red Bar(Grayton), and Another Broken Egg), the parade, and fireworks there. The weather was great. It was pretty HOT and you can tell how hot from some of Baylor's pictures. He turns so red when he gets hot. He did not burn the whole time we were down there. So far we've done a great job keeping him from getting to much sun on both of our trips down. The beach and the water were so nice too. The only way you would've known anything about a oil spill is from all the workers walking up and down the beach. We talked to a few of them on a couple different occasions and they weren't finding anything. The water was a little rough and had a good bit of algae due to the tropical storm that had been out in the gulf several days prior to our trip.

Baylor really seemed to enjoy himself. He LOVED both the sand and the ocean. We let the water run up on him and he thought it was so much fun. Of course I took a lot of pictures and a few videos I will post the videos in my next post.

Playing on the beach in Seaside!

Cutest. Beach Bum. Ever.

Why did we have to leave the beach?

First time drinking water out of a cup like a Big Boy!

Bud and Alley's!

LOVING the water!

This beach thing is SO much fun!

I'm done with the pool... let's go back to the beach!

Naps on the beach are the BEST!!!

Awake from a good nap!

Hurry Up! I want to go see the Big Boats!

I like this place!

Waiting for fireworks on the beach on July 3rd!

I'm not ready for bed, yet!

In my red, white, and blue!
