6 Months

FREEDOM!!!!! :) We have reached the day!! Jayden is now allowed to be out in the world. So far, we have been to a softball game where they dedicated a bench in memory of sweet Pam Kiser, a surprise birthday party for Erin Leeser, church, eating out at a few restaurants, a youth group event, and a few outings to Target. Other than crying when we all yelled "Surprise" at Erin, he has done really well. I thought he would be overwhelmed by the amount of people gathering around him, but he loved it! I am so thankful.

Here are his stats:
Weight: 18 pounds
Height: 27 inches
Head Cir: BIG!! But I will let you know this when we go to his 6 month appointment.

He is now constantly smiling and laughing. He has such a wonderful personality. He is content most of the time. He is rolling over, mainly from his back to tummy, but occasionally will roll from his tummy to back. He loves chewing on his hands and feet. Whether he is on the floor, in his swing, exersaucer, or in your lap, he is always moving. I think we have another active boy on our hands. We have not started him on cereal yet because he is doing so well on just milk. I better get on that...

We went to the cardiologist this past week. He is doing very well!! They are always so impressed with his growth, and the fact that you can't find his ribs because of all of the rolls. He is still on meds (and will be for a very long time) for his rapid heartbeat and it is still doing it's job. We also found out a while back that he has a premature heartbeat. Our doctor said that is nothing to worry about unless there are two or more premature heartbeats in a row, which has never happened to him. So, we have a lot to be thankful for. We are so blessed at how well he is doing. We thank God multiple times a day for our precious "little" boy. He has changed our lives in so many ways. I cannot imagine our life without him.

here he is with his heart monitor on
Bryce is such a good big brother. He is so proud of Jayden. Yesterday at church, people would come up to see Jayden, and Bryce would yell, "That's my baby brudder!" :) Made me so happy. :)

I know this was long. I had a lot to update. We are so ecstatic to be able to take our boy out. I have been missing church and playdates so much!!! So, those of you around this area, you will be seeing our faces A LOT!!! :) Watch out world, here comes Jayden!!!!
