June: All about Daddies and Brides

Today is Father's Day, so Happy Father's Day to all the Daddies. Hank is very lucky because he has a very good Daddy. Brant is very good with Hank and has no problems with helping take care of him. We are both very lucky!

Last night Brant and I went to my little cousin's wedding. It was a very nice wedding. You know you are getting old when you remember the bride as a baby!

Hank is now Nine Months old - before you know it he will be getting married.

He is now 22 .8 lbs and 30 inches. He started to eat some finger foods this weekend including rice puffs and toast cut into bite size pieces. His little hands are into everything now. He went to the Doctors on Friday for his nine month check up and got one shot - he did very well this time with it. He started to cry, but stopped right away. I took the day off of work to be with him. Later that day we went for a nice walk around the neighborhood and when we came back in it looked like he was chewing on something but I couldn't see anything. When I laid him down to change his diaper that's when I discovered he had the little round band aid from where he got his shot in his mouth! I never imagined he would have done that. It scared me to death of course. He will go back to the Doctor's in three months when he is a year old. He will be due for several shots then. I always worry about the shots. I don't like to see him in pain and I also worry that he could have some side effects. At least next time I will know not to keep that band aid on!

Peek A Boo - Hank sees you!

Hank plays so well now. He can sit for a long time and just play with his toys. He is also now participating in peek a boo - he hides himself now. He is so funny. Watch the video and see him playing in his crib.

Beach Baby

We went to the ocean the weekend before last ( I have been too busy to post before now). Any how I had to post about Hank's recent accomplishments. Down at the ocean he cut his first tooth and started to clap his hands. He says Mom a lot and also started to say Da Da this past Friday. This trip to the ocean was the first time he got to sit on the beach. He loved sitting there and playing, but he was skeptical of the sand. When I gave him a shovel full to touch he shivered and acted scared of it. I have to say I never expected that reaction! He also got upset when sand was put in his bucket and he was very satisfied once it was dumped out.

The ocean was still too cold to put him in, but this past weekend he was able to get into the swimming pool and he loved it. He kicked his feet and laughed and swam all around in his baby float.
It has been amazing the changes we are seeing just in the past two weeks. I can't believe how fast my baby is growing.
