Wowwww!!! I’m not going to be cliche and say that time has flown by, but I will say that I can’t believe how much this little booger has grown. I was going through his newborn pics the other day and I just couldn’t believe how tiny he once was.
I mean…this guy…
I’ve become “that” mom…
I have about a million pics of my son on my phone and Instagram? Let’s not even go there! :-P
Have you ever seen the nailed it memes? This one is one of my favorites…
Laughing uncontrollably…right now!
I can relate to that picture. I didn’t have newborn photos taken professionally. I meant too. Time just kind of slipped away and now…he’s no longer a newborn! So, I decided to take it upon myself to take some pics.
First of all, he barely squeezed into that little prop outfit. They are supposed to be suspenders. Oops.
They didn’t alllll turn out terrible.
I do need to get some professionals done before he gets too big.
Anywho, how are things going for us?
No really. I can’t complain. He is so much fun. It’s so hard to get anything done because I just want to play with him all of the time. We have a pretty good sleep-eat-wake cycle going. He wakes up around 8am every morning. It’s the sleeping at night thing that he can’t quiet figure out. I’ve read all the books and I’ve tried all the tricks. Dude just does not like to sleep. He falls asleep just fine, but he just won’t stay asleep. Sometimes he wakes up hungry…sometimes he wakes up for unknown reasons. I am thankful that he always falls back to sleep easily…with my help of course. No self soothing yet. I do get a little frustrated, because he has slept through the night a few times and so I know that he can do it. Guess he just likes to keep mom on her toes. He’s also a catnapper. He is just now starting to nap for at least 45min. Hopefully, he will figure it out soon.
Nursing has become much better.
It seems that when I think I have him all figured out…he goes through a spurt and we have to start all over again.
I try not to take all of this too seriously. This is all a season and a very short season at that. Stressing about things help nothing. I’m just enjoying the heck out of him right now.
It’s amazing how much he has grown. Have I already said that?
He went from screaming bloody murder with every diaper change to giving me his biggest smiles. He now enjoys bath time. He loves being worn!
Oh…and of course I love wearing him. We used the Moby wrap in the beginning, but now that it has been in the 80s we have started to use the lighter weighted Solly Baby Wrap. Hopefully, he will be able to fit in his Ergo carrier soon. We’re ready to take him hiking!! Do any of you guys baby wear? Which carrier is your favorite?
I think he’s going to be a thumb sucker. Right now he is more of a fist sucker as he can’t quiet figure out the thumb thing yet. I tried several different pacis on several different occasions, but he will have nothing to do with them. Oh well!
Let’s see…what else?
Cloth diapering is going well. It’s not as hard as I thought it would be. If anyone has any questions about my experience with it just let me know! I’d be more than happy to write a post about it. :-)
I’m not sure how much he weighs. I’m guessing around 12lbs. He’s fitting perfectly in 3mo clothes. Never thought I would have so much fun buying little boy clothes!!
Surprisingly, our dogs (Bella and Jenkins) have adjusted well to him. I wouldn’t say they “love” him, but they definitely tolerate him.
His funny faces CRACK me up!
Soooooo very much has changed in our world. I never imagined myself where I am now. A mom…to a wonderful baby boy. I am not who I once was. In fact, I am still trying to figure out the new me. Does that make sense?
I no longer have tons of time on my hands do do fun projects and crafts. We moved into a new home 3 weeks ago and I haven’t even finished unpacking yet. 8-( I know that it will get done eventually though and hopefully I will find time to share it with you home lover followers!
I know this post is everywhere and probably consists of more info than you care to hear about. This is my life now and I love it!
One last pic…
Thanks so much for visiting you guys!!
