So, I was curious and asked the doctor if it is possible that I could be overfeeding him (didn't know if that could happen when breastfeeding). He looked at me and was like "uh, yeah, does he spit up a lot?" My response; "Um, yeah, he does". OOPS... He said most babies his age eat around 3 oz. at a meal and Rody is averaging like 5-7 oz. a meal. I mean I think he would just get enough with 3 oz. to make him mad--no way that boy would be satisfied.
Rody got some shots yesterday- which was horrible- I hate seeing our baby in pain. It is pitiful and I would do anything to make the pain my own and not his ( I totally understand this now as a parent). Needless to say he was quite fussy and tired last night. I must have been dreaming hard because all my dreams were of Rody spitting up a ton because I was over feeding him and him getting hurt (probably because of the shots, etc).
I cried when I left him and Randy this morning...it was so hard. Keep praying that the Lord would provide a way for me to just be a mommy for a few years!
We will post some pics in the next couple of days!

Cuddle time after the bath. We wrap him in a towel and hug him close to warm him up. He smells so good and clean.
Take time out to enjoy all the precious moments and little things in your life!

- Katie's been a working mom this week and really wants to find a way to stay at home and raise children! Be praying...
- Randy is quite the stay at home dad! He has enjoyed this time with Rody!
- Grandma Kia came for a visit Tuesday- Thursday. It was great to have her here!
- Randy brought Rody to see me on Monday and Tuesday. Grandma Kia brough Rody to see me on Wednesday during the day
- Rody rolled over again! And Grandma got to see it this time...he's a genius! LOL
- Rody is eating consistantly 6 oz at a feeding...we know this because I am having to pump some and he takes a bottle when I am at work....he is growing so quickly!
- Rody is communicating! He loves to make oohs and ahhs with his voice, is starting to giggle, have happy screams, and smile a TON! It melts your heart everytime he does it!
Randy will graduate next Saturday, May 31st! We will post some updated pictures and a really great video of Rody talking to Grandma Kia soon!

I love this face!
Such a sweet smile!
This bib is a little big now--looks like a t-shirt on him!
Just starting to smile!
This is the "I'm so serious" face. We were beginning to lose him to sleepy land at this point
Thank you so much, Veryll, for taking these pictures!
And eventhough you always see pictures of him sitting in his boppy, I promise you that is not what he does all day! We hold him so much, but not too much, and he loves tummy time...

I hope Randy realizes there is some questionable baby bodily fluid on that pillow...oops. I won't tell him if you don't!

His little personality is starting to shine. Right now Rody is so much fun, but has times when a stuborn side of him comes through. It is actually funny to observe. He'll straighten out his legs and won't let you bend them for anything. He is so strong...but between both of his parent's genetic makeup, would you guess any differently?
And yes, his hair is still falling out. I was rocking and feeding him last night when Randy shot this pick. We kinda think he looks like Frank from "Everybody loves Raymond". What do you think? Funny story...after this I look at my hand and smell it and say "what's this?" Then I look down and see some brown stains on my shirt. Randy has this look on his face that is priceless, takes Rody from me, and we assess the damage. Major poop control going on after this photo! All over mommy, boppy, and Rody...fun times.
Rody loves tummy time for small amounts of time. He almost rolls over to his side and holds his head up for 30-45 second increments. It is going by so quickly.
To all the mom's out there- Happy Mother's Day! I am blessed to be a mother and now realize just how much my mom loves me..which makes me want to cry when I think about it. I love you mom!
