9 month check up and more!

81/2 month picture with his hat on backward like a "HOMEY G"

Sad day for me around here yesterday. It was our 2nd Aniversary (9 1/2 years together today) and Kris is working in Utah. YUCK!!! Also had to take Bug to the Dr. because of his cough. It's very persistant and so just wanted to get him checked its a week before his 9 month appointment but we did it today anyway.

Dr. Report: Cannon is 20.2lbs and 28 1/2 inches... This is good BUT he has lost almost 2 lbs from last month... Dr. said this is a number of things like his new activities Crawling and Walking (yes i said Walking) and it could be that he just dosen't get enough food... My issue with this is that his daily feeding schedule consists of 4-6 8oz bottles, 4oz jar of fruit of cereal/fruit mix for breakfast, 4oz of veggies or something at restraunt for lunch(mashed taters, beans, pasta) and a 4oz meat mix dinner or somthing from our dinner and 2oz of fruit. HOW IS THAT NOT ENOUGH FOOD??? I guess we just follow her rules that we pick When, Where,a nd What for dinner and he picks HOW MUCH!! Also because of his cough he is now diagnoised as an asthmatic and has Allergies. So he is on Zyrtec and Albuterol every day. My poor buggy boo.

Here are a Few pictures of him STANDING on his own and from here he started Walking ( a few steps then falls down but all on his own)

Any way That is all that is new. I am Teaching today and most of next week so that will be good to keep my mind off of Kris being Gone. He gets home on Friday the 16th so that is GREAT!!! by the way Cannon will be 9 months on the 16th hard to believe our little bug is that old already.

New to Blogs

Hey everyone we are new to this but thought it may be a great way to keep everyone in the loop about what is happening here in Colorado with the Brown Family.

Things are good, Kris is working in Utah and soon to be in Alaska. We miss him when he is gone but mostly we look forward to when he gets to come home. Cannon is getting so big. He is 8 months now and in the last 2 weeks he has gotten 2 teeth, stood on his own, started to walk with the couch, said "up" and "Hello", and is just all over the place. I just can't believe how stinking big he is now. He has such the personality he is just like his daddy; he is very easy going until he cant do something he wants to do then LOOK OUT!!! he is very determined. We take him in for his 9 month check up on the 15th of May so I will post his stats then.

That is about it for now. I will try really hard to put up at least a weekly update so check in and talk to you all soon!
