First off it was my first road trip ever! We went to Roosevelt lake with my Mommy's parents and sister and I had a lot of fun. As you can see here, I was the life of the party!
I did okay with the drive, but it turns out I really hate the ear popping that comes with elevation change!
It was also my first ever holiday, Easter!
Lastly, I finally got to take a bath in my baby bath thingy. I was no where near as into this as my parents and brother were. It was cold at times, I got wet, and had to be naked and seriously these are my three least favorite things! I would be very happy to stay dirty, but it seems my family has different ideas about that!
So I had to go back to the doctor today. (yes, today, Mommy caught up on posting)
Am I sick?
Do I even like the dang place?
But Mommy took me again. I now weigh MORE than I did at birth, which got Mom pretty excited -- 8 lbs 12 oz. My head is bigger too, by a quarter of an inch -- 14.25 in. They tell me that means my brain s growing, which I could have told them that. But they couldn't leave it at that. They had to poke me and look me over, take off my diaper and all that stuff. I gotta talk mom out of going to that place between now and when I turn 2 months old!
To prove how sick she is, she even took this picture. It was in between torture sessions so I look calm, but trust me, it was horrible.
Well, this is not a totally happy-baby post. As if all the torment I have already been through wasn't enough, my evil parents felt I needed to see a doctor. Seriously, what is that all about?! Mommy and Daddy seem nice, but every now and then they do things, like change my diaper, to prove that really they can be a bit mean too. Anyway, we went to the doctor on April 12th (Mom got a bit behind on posting) and it went good, other than how much time I had to spend naked. I hate being naked, its so cold! I have nearly gained all the weight I lost back, and I have to go back on the 19th to make sure I am still doing good there. I am a little less yellow now too, but the coolest news of all ... in four days I had already grown one whole inch! How awesome is that?! Seriously, I rock! But now to the owie part of my post: I had to go get a blood test. I may not be very worldly yet, but I am pretty sure the red stuff is supposed to stay INSIDE of me! So here are some pictures of my wound. Feel free to tell Mommy and Daddy how mean they are, they won't listen to me and keep saying its for my own good. Yeah, whatever!
This is Bodhi, he is one of my puppies. Bodhi isn't sure what I am just yet. He likes to sniff me, but since he has never smelled baby before he is still pretty curious. He wants to lick me bunches, but mommy and daddy won't let him too much, which is cool with me because I don't much care for it! My other doggie, Guinness, is cool too. She sniffs me but is less inclined to lick!
Well hello everyone! My name is Kellan, and I am only a few days old but I already have this awesome blog going -- my parents say I am pretty gifted already!
(Okay admittedly I have a bit of help with the blog, but I am still pretty awesome.)
This was set up so that I can update all my fabulous fans on some of the cool things I am doing and learning. I have been playing it a bit low key lately, but I was born on April 8th and have been having one adventure after another since! I have braved being born, already had one vaccination, spent a lot of time tanning, lost and gained a lot of weight for a guy my age, and now am home from the hospital and ready for a whole new set of exciting adventures!
Keep checking back here, because we will add more pictures and stories to let you know what has been going on in my exciting little life!
