6 Months Ago...

Six months ago our sweet baby boy came into this world. I can't believe how fast time flies by. The first couple of weeks of his life were scary and stressful. When he came home, I remember telling his doctor that I was so worried about him and his breathing. It was hard for me to sleep because I would worry that he was going to stop breathing in the night. His doctor told me not worry and that that was water under the bridge. He said that I shouldn't treat him any differently that a baby who came home on time. He has always been such a sweet little angel who loves to be held and cuddled. He is the most smiley baby I have ever seen. He not only smiles with his mouth, but with his eyes too. They sparkle any time he gets attention. Right now he is cooing/singing, rolling (only once in awhile and mostly during the night), eating baby food, and he can sit. Yeah! He loves attention from his big sister and especially loves the song "Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah" and will stop doing anything to listen. He is the most wonderful baby and we are so happy to have him in our family. We love you Will...happy six-month birthday!


Dave and I were so excited because we had purchased tickets to the Barnum and Bailey Circus and planned on taking Meg out for a little date. My mom was going to watch Will for us. The day of the circus, Dave ended up catching the nasty cold that we had and wasn't able to go. My mom, bless her heart, came with Meg and I instead. She really doesn't like the circus that much at all, so it was so nice of her to come. We brought Will with us. This circus wasn't what I was expecting at all. My mom likened it to a stake road show. Meg was sick and wasn't really too interested either. At one point I thought that she was going to fall asleep. We decided to stay for the tiger's act which was right after the intermission. Meg was excited for a little bit and then halfway through their act she sat sideways in her seat and wasn't really watching at all. She definitely wasn't feeling very well so I finally decided that it was time to go. It was kind of fun, but not something we'll do again any time soon. Grandma did buy Will and Meg gigantic stuffed animals so that was probably the highlight of the night for sure.

Meg chose this tiger. Will got an elephant and when my mom gave it to him, Meg said, "Meggie elpant." We are working on sharing.

Meg, Will and Grandma Higgy.

Too much fun for one day.
