HC, Cal & my girls

It is amazing how time flies! I can't believe Hayden is 7 months old. He is such a busy boy. He is eating finger foods...fruit puffs and veggie puffs...he loves bananas and carrots. It is so cute to watch his fingers pinch the food~his mouth wide open ready to munch down on yumminess. He loves to sit on the living room floor and play. He can sit there for hours....and when he gets tired he falls down onto his tummy. He is trying so hard to crawl, but it hasn't happened yet. He has two teeth and bibs filled with drool, so I'm thinking more teeth are coming soon. He loves watching his crazy sister and the dogs.

BTW...Callaway is doing good this morning. He is still really out of it. He wanted to go outside to lay in the is a picture of him coming to greet me when I walked outside to check on him. He is a good boy!

And since I talked so much about my are some pics of my girls :)

Hugs...Happy Thursday to you all!!

Prayers for Callaway

Callaway is home and groggy, but home!! He has a huge lampshade so he won't lick the wound.
Cal is having a tumor/growth removed from his leg today. We dropped him off this morning so they could get him ready for the procedure to be done around noon. I think the little guy was ready. We have been fighting this leg growth for months now. Harley on the other hand wasn't happy. The vet is less than a mile from our house, and when we returned she was howling at the back door. She misses her brother!! Ok...good thoughts today that my 10 year old boy (11 years old in April) will do well. They were somewhat concerned about his age...calling him a senior citizen. He is a peppy guy and we are hoping for easy surgery and fast recovery so he can get ready for springtime!!
HC is 7 months old today!!!! Prayers for him also...he woke up in the night with BOOGERS.....dang it....we will not start this sickness all over again!!!!!! More posts to come about Cal's progress and my little booger boy :)

I promise we don't starve him.

After each bite he would try to eat his toes.

Dirty Teeth

Several people have asked for a pic of HC's you go..not the cleanest.

Goofy Woofy

It is really hard to get good pictures of this little guy. And the two of them together...yea...dream on. He loves to growl at the camera and stick his tongue out! Here is the outcome of Tuesday mornings attempt .

Growling begins.....

Hayden is all better! ByeBye RSV :)

6 1/2 months old

HC has doubled his birth weight and is now 18 lbs 4 oz. As you can see in the pic above we are about to be chasing him around. He is now getting up on all fours....rocking back and forth. Dr. Shori wasn't really worried about him not liking the bottle any more. She said he will get most of his nutrients from his rice cereal and food. He is loving his sippy cup. Yay to no more breathing treatments! He was really starting to fight us when we put that mask on, and he is a strong little man.
