Firsts: trip to a water park, beach trip, trespassing (we stayed a duplex at the beach, the people next to us left early and so we welcomed ourselves over to see what the other side was like), family reunion, shots (that did NOT go well)
News Headlines: Y’all, I have no clue. Football season has started. And there’s something going on in Syria. I’m so embarrassed, I should know all about the Syria stuff. Brent has explained it to me so many times and it just flies right over my head.
Favorite Toy/Activity: Mr. Crab makes you laugh, you stare at the ceiling fan like it’s going to stare back, your floor gym is still a favorite
Mommy’s Favorite: your smiles, the way you wiggle in the bathtub…most nights you LOVE bath time so much you just can’t be still
Daddy’s Favorite: getting you to “talk”
Lily’s Favorite: hugging and kissing you
Milestones: You are in size 1 diapers, 0-3 and 3 month clothes, you are holding your head up very well, starting to “talk” and we love it, eating 5-6 times a day taking 5-6 ounces in each bottle, we put rice cereal in your last bottle (per Dr. B’s suggestion because you were eating every 2 1/2 hours even through the night), sleeping about 6-7 hours at night, you wake up every morning at 4:30 but are usually not hungry and we spend the next 1 1/2 hours sticking the paci back in your mouth so you can fall back asleep
Weight/Length: 12 lbs and 22.75 inches long
Like Mommy: you have a very inconsistent sleep pattern and have trouble staying asleep
Like Daddy: you love to rock and swing
Like Big Sister: you stare at the tags on your toys, the way you make the “O” sound and round your lips when you talk
Best Memory: our beach trip, and all the times your sister plays with you when she thinks I can’t hear her
Biggest Challenge: you aren’t really on a schedule yet and I thrive on routine. I remember having the same challenge with your sister and she eventually had a great schedule. I keep telling myself that you will get the hang of it soon.
How we spend the day: Each day is different. You go to school two days a week, stay home/run errands, two days a week, and hang out with just me while Lily is at school one day a week. You usually eat around 6 in the morning. I try to keep you awake after that but it’s not always possible. You eat every 3-4 hours and in between feedings you play and sleep. You take your last bottle sometime between 9:30-11 then we put you to bed. I feel like the reason we can’t get you on a consistent napping and eating schedule is because our days vary so much. I’m okay with that. You seem to go with the flow pretty well.
Nicknames: Buddy, 75 (as in “seven five” not “seventy five”) because you are in the 75% percentile in weight, Scotty 2 Hotty…and let me be CLEAR (but nice) I do not want him to be called Scotty!
Funniest Moment: There hasn’t been one in particular this month (at least that I can remember).
How we celebrated: Well, since I’m so late in posting this, I have no clue. Sorry, buddy!
