Sleep and Growth

So I have been sleeping in the car seat placed in the port-a-crib for over a week now. I am sleeping a LOT better. The last two nights I have had a 5 hour sleep stretch! Mommy is very happy with that.

My reflux is doing MUCH better. Mommy stopped my meds already and I seem to be just fine without them. Mommy is nursing me differently and more frequently and that is helping too. Only a few belly burps that have resulted in me soaking Mommy.

My tummy time is paying off too. I can hold my head up pretty high now and for about 10 seconds at a time.

Here is a photo shoot of my turning my head side to side.

Okay, done with all my aerobics and time to relax.

Sleep

Last night I left Mommy sleep from 9:45pm until 3:15am!!! Five and a half hours of real sleep. Other than the oven finishing its cleaning cycle at midnight… Mommy got a good nap! 🙂 I am getting bigger every day! 🙂

1 Month Check-up

Today was my one month check-up. Hmm, a week and a half late! hehe! I weighed in at 11lbs 8oz. That puts me in the 75%. I am a bit smaller than Breighton but Mommy and Daddy seem to think I am bigger. I haven’t really grown in length… but that is because no one can seems to measure a baby the same. I was 21.25 at the hospital and am only 22 now. Oddly, I don’t fit in most of my 0-3 month clothing other than pants. So Daddy thinks my legs are shrinking and my torso is lengthening!??? Huh? Sure Daddy! I am just fine!

Me trying to figure out Mommy’s phone.

So SERIOUS! I always look serious!

I still sleep too! Mommy crashed with me because my sleep vibes were SOOOOO strong!

Doesn’t it look like this would HURT?? Where did my face go. I am all twisted up!

Renissance Faire

Today we went to the Renaissance Festival in Tampa.

I spent most of my day in the stroller sleeping. The ground was wicked bumpy so I was a little mixed up… really it just lulled me to sleep.

Breighton wanted me to wake up so he could show me his dragon tattoo. I opted for sleep.

I did wake up to watch Breighton on the pony ride.

Tomorrow I go for my one month check-up. Mommy thinks I am well over 11lbs. We will see tomorrow. Mommy said that 0-3 month clothing is tight shoulder to crotch but pants are still a bit long for me in 0-3 month size. I am going to be a big boy just like my brother!

I am a MONTH old already!!!!

So Mommy has been having a hard time finding time to blog. Usually she finalizes big brothers blog posts during his nap, but that is now MY time… so poor Mommy gets no break. Sure there is time after Breighton goes to bed and before I go to bed, but that is when Mommy picks up the house and eats dinner and bangs her head on the wall. Two boys… sure we are a handful! 🙂

So, what have I been up to? Sleeping…
