Cowboy Boots!


Wyatt is finally fitting into his cowboy boots!

He received them from his Auntie back in January 2011 for his baby shower, and I have been anxiously awaiting the day when he would finally be able to wear them! They are a size 5, which is pretty big considering how tiny my growing boy is. He has big feet like his dad, with nasty weird shaped toenails to match.

He is also starting to wear his 9 and 12 month clothes. I swear I thought this day would never come, but a few days ago I decided to go through his closet and lo and behold I was able to fit him (rather loosely) into 12 month shirts and hoodies. As for jeans he is still in the 6 month since he is so small around the waist.

In other news, Wyatt used the potty last week! I was so excited that we were introducing it early and seeing some success, and that is where it ended. He enjoys lifting the lid, taking toilet the toilet paper rolls and stacking them inside the potty, and then 'flushing' them. But that is about it, not that I'm the least bit disappointed. This summer I foresee a lot of peeing on the lawn after bathtime, so that should reduce my diaper load at least a little while I'm at the end of my pregnancy.

Speaking of which, I am now 15.5 weeks along and this baby has been causing us both joy and trouble. Baby has been moving around like crazy, and has even kicked his/her brother back a couple of times in the past week or so... I guess sibling rivalry starts early. I had been feeling much better until Sunday afternoon when I got food stuck in my throat after vomiting on the side of the road (fun!). I went to ER thinking it wasn't a big deal, and it resulted in an overnight stay in the hospital, breathing troubles and an ambulance ride to and from the city for an endoscope. In the end we're all fine (thankfully) and baby shows only signs of thriving after our ordeal, which is really all that matters. Wyatt was probably the one most upset about the impromptu hospital stay, considering he had never had a whole night away from us. I guess he needs some practice anyways.

So, without further ado, here are some more pictures of my little cowboy in his brand new cowboy boots!
