Matt's visit to the Oral Surgeon

Matt's appointment went very well today. We went to an Oral Surgeon today because he has a mass that you can see on his lower cheek (right on the jaw). They think it's an abscess that is caused by a tooth. They said it looks to be good news because it is free moving (which means you can touch it and it wiggles instead of being attached to the bone which could mean possible cancer). So He will be going in on 5/26 to remove the tooth and clean out the tooth pocket and bone and send the mass off to be looked at. He will also be getting his wisdom teeth removed at the same time (they're all through the gums). He was going in to our dentist on 6/2 to get them removed. They said it would be easier on him. And it is going to end up costing us less money too . So we feel very good about it all and so does the Oral Surgeon. Matt is going to be awake during the process so they can talk to him on what they're finding and what the mass looks like (his choice). We will be glad when this is over, we were worried at first for not nothing what the mass was and having members on both sides of our families having cancer. We are very blessed to have gotten into the Surgeon so quickly and get this taken care of.

6 month Well Baby visit

Autumn's 6 month appointment went very well. She is 15 lbs 12 oz 26 1/2 in long. She got 3 shots and 1 oral med (she's not crazy about the shots but one day she'll thank us). She move from the 10th percentile in weight to the 50th!!!!! And is still in the 75th percentile for height. Her spit-up is getting better and she is now only on 2 meds for that. Autumn is sitting up and starting to crawl backwards lol (she'll be moving forward in no time). She loves to eat her baby food. We are having a little trouble with nap times b/c she wants to play ALL the time :) but she sleeping very well at nights. All in all she's a very healthy and happy baby. I'm feeling really blessed :)

Go bye Infant Car Seat :)

We have finally transferred to the big car seats now!!!! No more infant car seat :) Autumn has learned to sit up all by herself (well more the most part), So that means we don't have to use the infant car seat any more. Which I'm so happy about because she was getting so heavy to carry. We went to Target last night and she got to ride in the shopping cart for the first time. She loved it!!!
Autumn is growing so fast it's unbelievable. She's starting to put herself to sleep. She's also getting her own  little personality, and she has also gotten her laugh which just warms my heart every time I hear it. She loves being down in the floor playing with her toys and rolling around. Autumn is also getting very good at reaching for everything.
