You've gotta see it to believe it.

Yep, he's asleep. Yes, I sneak in and take the book off everytime he does it.

For those of you out there with kids.. these videos are either redundant or hilarious. I'm gonna keep posting them for my family's sake. This one just cracks me up. Yes.. the bib is on backwards and Mo is a bit too small for the high chair. That's how we roll.

This just cracks me up!

It doesn't make me a "bad" mom that I just grabbed the camera and giggled? Does it? Does it??

Another trip to Albuquerque!

We just got back from Albuquerque on Sunday evening. Jeremiah went to a wedding in Missouri, so Mo and I stayed with family until he came back. We had a great time! Here are a few pictures from the weekend!!

Mrs. Vicki and her grand daughter, Hayley. Hayley greeted us with, "Hello baby Moses!!" Very sweet!
Mo in his new hat from Aunt Pam. He was hanging out with Uncle Woody. He had a great time!

Moses and Dana. They're buds!

Sweet potatoes Part II

It didn't go so well the second time around. Hmm.

Sweet potatoes!

Last night the Mo-man had his first bites of sweet potatoes. This morning I changed a diaper that has rivaled non-other. A new day has dawned at the Hayes home.

Before you watch this video I must apologize for a couple of things.

#1 - The silly voice I use when I talk to Moses. It's awful. Poor guy, he's stuck with me all day.

#2 -The camera, um, person, whomever it was, really needs to refine their skills. You get just as good a view of the back of Miah's hand as you do of Mo's sweet face. Sorry.

I just can't get enough of this boy!

P.S. Please take note of those sweet thighs!

We're a go!

We have been putting off solids because of Mo's tummy problems. When we went to the pediatrician last week, she suggested mixing the cereal with apple juice because then Mo would be getting the juice to help with the tummy and be starting cereal, which she thought we should be doing. So.. we gave it a go! At first Moses would close his eyes and shake his head.. kinda cute.. but now he downs a whole bowl AND his bottle. What? What happened here?? When did he get big enough for this? And and.. we have our first batch of baby food steaming right now!! That's right folk, Moses will soon be eating solids!! Wowzers.
And, as a side note, his tummy issues have actually started getting better since we started the cereal!

Going to the doctor..again.

Life is an adventure. Life with Moses is, well, I don't know if adventure is the right word. More like.. trial and error. With a heck of a lot of laughing mixed in, of course.
So, his cold is gone, thank goodness. He handled it like a trooper. Now we're dealing with some tummy issues. A few weeks ago I stopped nursing Mo, for a million reasons I won't go into, and we have been trying to figure out this formula thing. For starters, formula is gross. It smells bad and I can't imagine it tastes very good. After trying a few different brands Moses decided he liked the most expensive one on the market.. atta boy. So while I now have a formula he will eat, he has become so constipated that he just doesn't have a lot of room in his belly. We have tried Karo syrup, apple juice and prune juice. It has all left me with more questions than answers. How much juice? Do we start solids? How much Karo syrup can the kid have, for Pete's sake?! Since our beloved Dr. Nancy switched practices we made a trip to another doc this week for some help. While he is a wonderful physician, I think because he is not a pediatrician he just gave me some weird advice. So the hunt was on for a pediatrician. They are in short supply in Farmington, so we decided on a group of physicians in Durango. They are the same docs that checked Mo out at the hospital and we have some friends that use them. So we went this morning and it was so wonderful to have someone who works with little people exclusively. Now we have a game plan: a new formula, probiotics and a plan for starting solids. And! Finally! Help with Mo's rash! Yay! This poor kid has sandpaper for skin and it gets so bad on his elbows that the skin actually breaks and gets all weepy. Eww. He could care less but it sure isn't pretty! I have a feeling Mo will be better in no time, and, if he isn't, the ped said to call and we will figure something else out! As Miah would say, "Chee-hoo!"

Same ol' stuff.

The sweet Mo-Man, joining us at the dinner table.
Some day, little buddy, you'll get more than milk. But not today...

Loungin' with mama, watching some Praise Baby..

What a gentleman, holding all of mama's stuff.

Still sicky's..

This is our week.. anything to keep Moses happy.

Chewing on his bib makes him very happy..

He hasn't had much of an appetite.. so playing with his bottle and eating his fingers makes him very happy..

Mama made Moses a little bed in the living room to watch Baby Einstein. And took the paci outside of the crib. And gave him a bear to snuggle with.
Sigh, life is good.

Sick little Mo-Man.

If only Mama kisses could make it "all better". With all the sneezing and throwing up around here, I've really had to amp up the amount of kisses Mo gets, just to keep it even. Get better soon, little buddy!
