Half B-Day and Other Stuff

On the 17th Evan celebrated her half-b-day! I really can't believe that she's already six months old. Her check-up was today and we're happy to report that she is happy and healthy. Evan weighs in at 14 pounds 6 ounces and is quickly closing in on the 50th percentile (that's our goal!). She's in the 80th percentile for height, but Damon can't remember exactly how long she is.

Evan enjoys playing with her brothers, taking pictures, laughing, smiling, chatting with mommy and daddy, bouncing in her excersaucer, and putting any and everything in her mouth. We're working on sitting up independently and will be moving up to stage 2 foods soon.

Cameron and DJ are doing well. We've started to track Cam's behavior with a sticker chart and it's working wonders. He has issues with following directions and aggression and since we've started using the chart, the problems have been cut in half! He'll also be seeing the counselor at school once a week where they'll discuss how to deal with anger and practice following directions.

Since DJ has been potty-trained we've had a major bed-wetting issue. It's a great week when he can go at least 2 nights dry. Sad, but true. Today DJ visited the doctor so we can hopefully nip this issue in the bud. He gave a sample and was tested for diabetes (he's fine, just a precaution). When Damon mentioned that we were considering buying a bed wetting sensor our wonderful pediatrician whipped out a free one and gave it to us. Horray! We're going to have DJ begin wearing it tonight. Surprisingly he' pretty excited about the thing because it's red (his favorite color), but he's worried that he won't hear the beeping. We'll see how it goes. Keep your fingers crossed for a dry morning.
