Haven't slept 3 days...

because of the super, cute, little guy!
After the 3rd night of Dane waking up around 11 p.m. screaming bloody murder, we finally decided to take him to the emergency room.
After an x-ray of his belly and an enema and follow up x-ray, he is doing much better!
He had what was called an intestinal intusseception--basically his intestines had a 'kink' in them and needed to be straightened out!
Typically, the ER Dr. has to send a pediatric case like ours to Riley Hospital, but we were fortunate that the radiologist came in to do the procedure at 3 a.m.
The Dr. evaluated him today around noon and said everything looked good, and that there is a SMALL chance that this could happen again.
Praying for a full nights sleep!!!

Playing in the bed today at the hospital!
Thanks for all of your kind messages and concerns!!!

Better late than never!

SEVEN MONTHS OLD!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dane turned 7 months old this past weekend. He wasn't in the best of moods....He wasn't sleeping, eating or feeling well--even ran a fever. My first thought was....teeth? Ears?

Dane is a total mama's boy.
Loves to blow raspberries.
HATES to be left alone.
LOVES when Mia talks to him.
Loves a nice, warm bath.
Hates having his shirts pulled over his head--he kinda freaks out on me.
LOVES to eat.
Has his 2 bottom teeth in!!

Dane has had peas, green beans, carrots and sweet potatoes so far in the vegetable department.
He has had pears, apples, bananas, peaches and applesauce in the fruit department.
We haven't found a food that he doesn't like--yet ;)

He's still nursing....I have been supplementing a bit of formula in his bottles to help him get ready for the transition off of breastmilk--I'm almost ready to be done...(I have a lot of boob issues--mastitis, clogged milk ducts--and I'm sick of fighting it!!) :) My goal is to have him off nursing by March!

He seriously has to MOST beautiful blue eyes....

Happy boy after eating dinner!!!

Chews and drools on EVERYTHING!

Trying to figure out this pincer grasp and self feeding thing.....hmmm. Might need a bit more practice!

And here was Dane on his actual 7 month birthday--sick boy :(

We went to the Dr. first thing this past Monday--and he has ear infection #5.
We go see a specialist in February to talk about the next step....possibly tubes.
We'll see.
Other than that, he's so wonderful!
