Spring Flowers

Our neighbors, a few houses down have the most beautiful flowerbeds- so, what did we do? We rang their doorbell and asked if we could put Bryson in the flowerbed for some photos! And they agreed!
This next picture was just too funny- Bryson decided to taste test the daffodils.....

I am so happy that Spring has finally arrived! We can get Bryson out of the house more and summer will be here soon!

Seven Months

Bryson is now seven months old! This monthly photo deal is taking quite a bit longer as he doesn't want to sit still in the rocking chair! :)
I think this is the first full month that he's gone without being sick or on antibiotics. He's now taking Zyrtec every night to help his Eustachian tubes drain properly. Also, this month, he started going to the chiropractor in an attempt to help avoid/treat his frequent ear infections. Thus far, I'm pleased!
Other milestones/Bryson facts:
* He's just started to scoot/demonstrate a slight army crawl.
* He's eating 3 meals a day, plus his 6 oz bottles of formula. All stage 2 baby food and some puree's I've made myself
* He loves watching and attempting to play with Leia
* He's sleeping from about 8:30pm to 7am, but refusing to nap more than an hour at a time. He's taking 2-3 cat naps a day.
* Still drooling. alot.
* Still no teeth.
* He loves to grab. At everything.
* We haven't found a food he doesn't like!!

A Day in the Life....

I'm a little late, but over at Kelly's Corner ( she is doing 'a day in the life' special. So, I figured I'd share our normal routine.

Since I work PRN, my schedule varies, but overall we usually start our day the same way:

5:30am- (4x a week) Jazzercise class
from 6am to 7:30am- Bryson wakes up, eats 6 oz of formula and a jar of fruit- then we play, read and change clothes
9am- drop Bryson off at pre-school
9:30-3pm (to as late as 6pm on Monday's)- I work as an SLP and Bryson's at pre-school
3-6pm- Come home
Bryson plays, I try to do housework, start dinner, etc
5:30/6pm- family dinner
6-8pm- family time
8pm- Bryson's bath
8:30- Bryson goes to bed
10-10:30- Brandon and I go to bed

I can't explain to you how much I love working PRN. It stinks that I don't get paid to take off, don't get me wrong- but when Bryson's sick or has a dr's appt, its no big deal to get off work. I just cancel w/ that client and go! I love the flexibility I have to be with him when I need to be.

I adore his preschool as well- he is FINALLY getting on a nap schedule- which i desperately needed their help to do!!
