Wyatt's 6 month checkup

Wyatt had his 6 month checkup on Tuesday (the 24th). He did really well! He's tall, but skinny and his head is a little smaller than average. The doctor said, though, that he's acting like a 9 month old. Sitting up really well, grabbing everything and putting it in his mouth. He's army crawling and scooching around really well, too. Oh yeah and his first tooth, the bottom right, is finally poking through!! I noticed it as we were sitting there waiting for the doctor to come in. He ran a fever that night, probably because of the tooth. We postponed his shots because he was already miserable with a cold. Let's see, he can transfer a toy from one hand to the other. He can stand holding on to something. He objects (profusely) when you try to take a toy away. He passed with flying colors and charmed everyone, too.

While we were there we got Oliver his first Chicken Pox shot. He was none too happy about it and started crying as soon as we layed him on the table. It was over pretty quick and then we went and had a special lunch because he "did so well" being a big boy. He ran a fever that night, too...and all day yesterday...and last night...and today. If he still has a fever tomorrow I'm going to call the dr's office and see if that's normal.

We got the bunk beds today! I will take some pictures tomorrow and post them. It looks great and so far Oliver loves it! We'll see how bedtime goes.

What's going on?

I have hardly been online this week. It's been hectic at work - I worked 5 days instead of my usual 4 since the OM was on vacation. Then Wednesday the manager got demoted so there's that. Then Thursday we took a trip down to SC to visit Grampa Steve and go through some stuff he'd had at the old house. That was an interesting trip. I was trying not to just grab stuff because it was there. I think everything I got was something that actually has some kind of memory attached to it. Like the horse we used to play with or the cologne bottles that were always on Dad's bathroom counter. Anyway, there were a few things that we all wanted or 2 of the 3 of us wanted so we'll have to see how that turns out in the end. There were also some things that we had to write down because he wasn't giving them away right now. So it was a good trip, seeing Dad and Rachael and Sarah and Delilah. We had Rush's for lunch (YUM). Oliver fell in the garage and got a big bruise and bump on his forehead but that was really the only bad thing. The boys both travelled well.

Wyatt is so close to crawling. He wants to do it so bad! He finally got the army crawl perfected. He can scoot around just dragging himself on his arms...reach...drag...reach...draaaag...reeeach...draaaag!! I guess whatever works. He's also about to get his tooth for real this time. There has been two bumps on his bottom gums for such a long time but the tooth on his right is about to break through. I can see it! I can't feel it yet but I'm thinking it'll be out before his dr's appointment on Tuesday.

Oliver just woke up and we might be going to a party in a few minutes so I gotta run for now. Will post more at the earliest opportunity!
