My life as a mommy :)

5 months old!

My sweet little man is now 5 months old! I cant believe it, he's suppose to be my wittle baby still! We have had a big month and learned lots of new things!

Look who is now sitting up all by himself now! I am such a happy and proud mommy! I did cry the whole day when he started sitting up by himself though! He is suppose to need his momma for everything but yet he is becoming so independent and loves to lay in the floor on a palet and play with his toys. He used to love to sleep on my chest at night but now he wants to be a big boy and lay beside me. He also learned how to roll over from his back to his belly and his belly to his back. He loves making noises with his mouth, which is his newest discovery and he does it all the time now! We also have two teeth trying to break the gums on the bottom now! 

He eats 4-5 oz of Simliac Sensitive every 2 hours and has one thing of baby food at night for supper followed by 2 oz of formula to go with that. His favorite food is bananas and squash! Since we hit the teething stage he no longer sleeps through the night. He wakes up every 3 hours at night for a bottle. However, recently we stopped letting him drink a bottle to make himself go to sleep. We have developed a new schedule to better fit us and we love it!

6:30 am- wakes up for the day and has a 5 oz bottle. We then play and watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse until 7:45 am when I drop him off at my mom's house while I go to work. 
9:00am- he goes down for an hour nap.
10:00am- he wakes up and plays with his cousin kayden.
1:30pm- I pick him up from my mom's and we both take an hour nap.
Once we wake up we either go to the park and play or go for a walk. We will then come home and wait on his daddy. Then he all just play together in the floor. 
4:00pm- he goes down for another hour nap while I clean up the house.
5:00pm- we go outside and let him jump in his jumper for awhile before coming in and letting him have some supper. He eats at the same time we do so that he will become used to eating as a family. 
7:00pm- he gets a bath, loitioned up, his jammies on then we will read him some bedtime stories.
7:30pm- he gets his last bottle fed by his daddy while I get a shower.
8:00pm- me and him will lay in bed with dimmed lights and I put the tv on the lullaby channel. Normally, by 8:30 he is asleep for the night. 

This past month he has been to his Uncle TyTy's football games, a trip to the fair, birthday parties, 2 weddings, and to the mall. He is such a happy, giggly, silly little boy. He loves to smile at every girl he sees, his jumper is his best friend. I couldn't have asked for a better little boy. He is def the biggest blessing I could have ever asked for. He has taught me what its like to truly love someone with your whole heart. We have learned so many new things and went on so many new adventures this past month. I can not wait to see what this month has in store for us.

Too much evil...

I'm just going to warn you, this is not a happy post, it's far from it. If you're in a good mood, I would not read this post.

We live in a small Alabama town where nothing but nothing happens. We eve at everyone we pass, we have small town functions where everyone joins together for a fun time. A town where football rules our town and no evil ever happens. Recently, the evil has found my small country town. Within the past month, our town has had 3 robberies and 2 shootings, all in which the shooters are still on the loose.

Where has this come from? I thought I picked a safe town for my son to grow up in. I thought I picked a town where my son would know no evil. Apparently I was wrong. I know there is evil all over but it just don't happen in our town. I cry many nights that I have brought Konnor into such a cruel and evil world but I know that only God will make this all better. I fully believe that God is watching over my son and he is protecting my sweet baby. I ask that every mother pray over your sweet baby everyday. That every mother explains to their child that there will be evil all around us, no matter where we live but that God's love overcomes everything. I just hope and pray that' my town gets back to normal but most of all that our town finds god again.

I forgot that I never posted how Konnor's appointment with his surgeon went.

As of right now, it's still just a hydrocele and not a hernia like we was worried about. Since its not a hernia that only means no surgery for now. We go back in the end of October for another check-up. If the hydrocele does not go away by the time Konnor turns one, he will have surgery. His surgeon could not give us a definite answer about whether or not he thought it would go away on its own. His hydrocele is in a very odd place which makes it harder to pass. Fingers crossed for no surgery for my baby boy! It's supposedly a very easy and simple surgery but still that's my baby and I do not feel comfortable with putting him to sleep or with him having stitches in such a sensitive place bu as a mother I want my child to be better and I know God is watching over him.

In case you're wondering, a hydrocele is a water build-up in his little boy parts. It's nothing we could have prevented and it does not hurt him one bit. They said he got it when I was pregnant and I was not big enough so certain parts of his body got neglected. When a little boy's testes drops something shuts off so no water is allowed in, well konnor's never shut off. We noticed it at his 2 week check up. But like I said Konnor is not in pain, he does not even notice its there. He doesn't cry or anything during diaper changes or baths when you clean him so that's why they will wait till he is one if it's still there.

We just ask that everyone please pray for our sweet baby boy!
