Uncle Ra-Ra

Mac finally met his Uncle Ra-Ra yesterday. Randy is home from Iraq on his R&R for about 2 weeks. With Mac being 11 weeks early, Randy never met him before being deployed. Ironically, Randy left for Iraq on the same day that Mac came home from the hospital, March 9. He seemed totally captivated by his Uncle Ra-Ra, and I think they will be big buds.

Rubber Duckie...

Rubber duckie, you're the one. You make bath time lots of fun....Rubber duckie, I'm awfully fond of you....dup, dup, pee dup...As you can see, Mac has really taken to bath time, especially when he can play with his rubber duckies...He has 4. For a shower gift, he was given a "Mommy Duckie" with four "baby duckies." He absolutely loves trying to catch them in the tub and then putting them in his mouth. Of course, we can't leave him on his belly long because his neck still isn't strong enough to hold up his head long, but he likes it like this anyway.

8 months old

WOW!! How time flies! I can't believe that Mac is already 8 months old. It's amazing. He is getting to the point where he is getting a little balance. He still isn't sitting on his own, but if you sit him up, he can stay there a second or two before falling over. He is also beginning to like tummy time. I drug this mat out today, and he loved it. He is trying to roll from his back to his belly. We still aren't doing baby food, and he is still only eating cereal once a day. He does sleep all night (usually at least 9 hours), and that to me is amazing since Emma just started sleeping all night. We are still taking 4 medicines (iron, multivitamin, zyrtec, singular) on a daily basis. We need to go back to the doctor this week because Mac throws up his first morning feeding neearly daily.
Over all, Mac is a very happy baby. He is content to play by himself, or to have Emma playing all over him. He smiles and laughs constantly. We are so lucky to have this wonderful child in our lives!!
