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.

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…

SO, THAT IS IT! Just lots of sleep!

OH, I went to EPCOT this past weekend. I will post pictures later!

Where have I been???

Well, since I blogged last I have been dealing with this reflux thing. Mommy is trying lots of different things to try to help me out with the pain and to get more sleep. I can’t lay down and sleep without having weird breathing sounds and flailing around my bed. Last night Mommy finally let me sleep in my car seat and I did MUCH better staying asleep. I do sleep VERY well ON Mommy but Mommy doesn’t sleep then. Ugh! Hopefully it all passes soon.

I am growing like a weed, nursing VERY well and loving my big brother a LOT! Breighton gives me LOTS of hugs and tries to comfort me when I get fussy. He likes to put stuffed animals on me and pat my head. Really cute! He has even been asking Mommy if he can hold and hug me lately. Daddy snapped a few photos of us bonding.

I can get my hands to my mouth when I want now. During tummy-time I can turn my head side to side and even hold it straight up for a few moments. I still pretty much REFUSE the binki, I prefer the real thing to pacify.

My life is not really in my control yet. I just get put in the car seat and toted all over town. Mommy said I make up for the control I give up during the day… at night it is ALL ABOUT ME! hehe!

Mommy & Daddy said I am not high needs… I am really mellow. I just make weird noises.

Oh yeah, I also got to meet my Grandpa John (He lives in California). That was cool. Big brother kept dragging him away for more hugs and night-night kisses, but I got my time of snuggles in! 🙂

Also, Mommy said the highlight of her week so far (knock on wood) is that I have gone nearly 48 hours since a MAJOR projectile reflux. I even went all day yesterday with the same onesie on! GO ME!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

Re-flux-a-saurus-rex…

Yup, you guessed it, just like big brother I have reflux. Mommy and Daddy aren’t as concerned this time since they know how to handle it. Mommy said there is no way she will pump and thicken again. (Daddy agreed because it apparently made Mommy VERY neurotic when she did it for 10 months for Breighton) Good news is that I do well if I am propped up for a while after I eat (which normally isn’t an issue since I sit in my bouncy chair most of the day).

I have had a few rough nights but still sleep. Mommy said I just make weird noises and toss and turn so she doesn’t get sleep. Daddy sleeps just fine! He could sleep through an explosion!
