Birthday Fun with the Campbell Side

Jude's second cousin Sebastian turned 1 this month and celebrated with the cutest Dr Seuss Party. All the Fenns were there and we had a fun time hanging out with the Campbells and Picos. We ate YUMMY tacos, amazing ice cream cake and plenty of piƱata candy.

 Sebastian showing Jude how eating your first birthday cake
is supposed to be done! Jude took mental notes for his
future party. Jude and Sebastian are exactly six months apart in age!

Watch Me Grow: 6 Months Old!

 Jude is 6 months old! The 8th of every month comes quicker and quicker and he is getting so big. For his 6 month checkup he was 27 1/4 inches (90th percentile) and 18 pounds (50th in weight for his height). This boy's got chubby legs but a long, skinny torso. His hair is slowly growing back in and getting lighter and lighter. Both bottom teeth are in and SUPER sharp.
Jude wears 6-9 month clothing. A lot of things are too short on his arms or legs but too big around his waist, so some clothes are a challenge. He will not keep shoes on for anything. He likes wearing his baseball cap, tho.
He's very content, especially when other babies/people are around for him to observe. He loves toys, his pacifier, his blankies, being tickled, bath time, eating any food except avocados, being held, going for walks, napping in his carseat and putting everything in his mouth.
We moved this month and he has been sleeping so much better in his own room. March 3 was the first time he slept 12 hours straight. He says 'dadadada' but doesn't know what it means. We do cloth diapers sometimes, but he doesn't like the feeling of wetness so we use them sparingly.

David turns 33!

The year has made its way around to the March birthdays again. March has 4 of our family members birthdays- Davids, his brother and sister, and my brother. It's a long month of celebrating!
We celebrated a day early with trifle since David's Monday schedule has him gone all day long.
Then the Thursday after we went to Ooka, our favorite teppanyaki place.
The meal was finished with milk puddings!

Jude's Escape Attempts...

...seem to always end with him falling asleep before he can follow through.
(Don't worry, we got a bumper to prevent further stuck limbs).
