The Many Faces of Breckin

As Breckin gets older, it's so much fun to watch his personality develop. He comes up with new faces to make every day, thoroughly entertaining his mommy and daddy. Just take a look at the expressions on our little character!

Can you believe he's only 3 months old?!

Breckin had a big day today - a new exersaucer and his first taste of rice cereal. He seems to love both!

Exercise Time!

Mommy and Daddy have been working with me to strengthen my neck and back. Watch me do my exercises by sitting in my Bumbo and doing some tummy time.

I'm the cutest boy in the whole world!

Thanks Aunt Heather!

This Saturday Breckin got a special package in the mail, an Indianapolis Colts sweatsuit from Aunt Heather! Both Daddy and Breckin were very excited.

The Pumpkin Patch

This past Saturday our life group made the trek up to Celina, Texas to go to what must be, based on the crowds, the only pumpkin patch in north Texas. Breckin wasn't overly impressed with the farm animals, the hay rides or the pumpkins. He was impressed with Miss Angela crawling on the ground at 9 months pregnant to get some great pictures of him!

Afternoon with Daddy

Breckin and I got to spend some time together yesterday before Brooke got home. Here is some fun video of him playing with and talking to his animals!

Some pictures I love

Happy Boy

To all of you who have been anxiously checking our blog for updates - sorry it has been so long! In the time since I've blogged last, we have turned a huge corner. Many of you know Breckin was struggling with his tummy. Starting around 6 weeks Breckin started fussing with nearly every feeding. After seeing the pediatrician, he was started on Prevacid with a diagnosis of acid reflux. After two weeks with no change, we went back where I informed her that his pooping habits had drastically changed - from 2-3 poops a day to 1 poop every 2-3 days. She said that this is not uncommon for babies and suggested we see a pediatric gastroenterologist. The specialist agreed with our pediatrician that it was indeed reflux and we should increase his Prevacid to three times a day.
Our babysitter, Kelly, with no medical degree but over ten years baby experience said she never knew a happy baby (especially the boys) who didn't poop every day. After 2 ounces of prune juice and a major colon cleanse, my boy is happy again! It is amazing what regular pooping will do for a baby's disposition! Thank you Kelly for convincing me that prune juice does indeed work wonders!
And now for some proof that our boy is much happier......
