Aspen Michael: 6 Months

Dearest Aspen,

Let me start by saying that this month has had its challenges. I see the pain as you gnaw at your hands furiously willing your teeth to come in. I hate teething for the pure fact of the discomfort it causes you. You are unable to soothe yourself especially at night. Sometimes even mommy holding you is unable to settle the pain. Tylenol nor teething gel helps numb the pain either. You even spent a week throwing up just before bed making mommy & daddy very worried. A trip to the ER determined that you were healthy as a tick except for those wretched teeth! But through it all, you smile and continue to be the laid back, easy going gentleman you have been since day one.

You weigh 18 lbs, 12 oz and are 27 3/4 inches long! Big ole' boy full of love & laughter :)

In fun news, you had your first trip to NOLA for Brock & Kim's wedding. You enjoyed the southern weather with the Collins family. Big cousin Bishop got to hang out with you one-on-one which you both loved :) You are going to be the best of friends! (**Daddy thinks you look just alike too!)

You celebrated your first Halloween as a sweet dalmatian. Your sister was Cruella de Vil...don't worry we didn't let her skin you ;)

Daddy watched you and Adelaide for 24 hours while mommy went away for the night. Things got crazy when he had to take you to the ER, the power went out, and daddy locked you all out of the house. Good thing mommy came to the rescue!!! 

We have enjoyed the first fall with you going from pumpkin patches to fall festivals and playgroup fun to musical round up. You are a true delight to be around and a true ham. We can't go anywhere without people remarking how adorable you are...can't say I blame them :)

Let's hope these evil teeth pop through asap!

I love you!
