It seems like everybody is having a baby lately.  Lisa and John had a little girl this week.  Julie and Joel just had a little girl last week.  Kristy and Jason had a baby boy about a month ago.  And before that it was Chrissy and Ross having a little boy in February.  Actually, there are even more if you track back to when Courtney was born at the end of October.  Babies, babies, babies.

I think it was the “Wheels on the Bus” song that got Bode started on his “up and down” kick.  He would talk about up and down a lot, and generally in reference to things going up and down.  The other day I tossed an old CD I had from college into my car because I hadn’t heard it in a long time.  I remembered it being a goofy bunch of songs by a band called Supernova.  Not the Supernova band with Tommy Lee.  When song number four came on, I knew Bode would love it.  It is aptly named “Up & Down”.  He now requests it whenever we go to drive somewhere.  He sits in the back and sings!  I love when he sings “…spinning like a yo-yo”.

When I bought the CD 10 years ago, I had no idea it would come to this!  It’s fun music that I enjoyed then and now.  I’m glad I can enjoy it with my kids.

So big!  At 5 1/2 months old, she is weighing in at 17 pounds 15 ounces.  That’s up 3 ounces in 2 weeks.  She’s been growing longer too.  Her 6 month checkup is approaching.  We’ll get new numbers then.
