Week 12

Age: Monday, June 3, 2013 12 Weeks Old
Weight & Height: I weigh 13.6 pounds according to Mom and Dad's scale in the bathroom! I am gaining so much weight right now and eating a TON!  Mom doesn't mind though cause she knows that it will keep me healthy and keep up her supply so she feeds me whenever I want to eat!
Things I enjoy: I still enjoy laying on my activity mat and standing in my bouncer.  I love riding in the ERGObaby carrier.  Most of the time I fall right asleep when my mom puts me in there! I am beginning to like my crib more and more.  I love staring at the fabric airplanes that my Aunt Jill made for me. 
Tough Times:  On Sunday night I gave Mom and Dad a run for their money.  I went to sleep pretty well at first but then I woke up around 2:30am and just didn't want to be put down.  Usually Dad can get me to sleep pretty easily....not this time.  Dad fed me 2oz that were left in the bottle and then Mom fed me on both sides and she rocked me in the rocking chair for about 45 minutes.  As soon as either of them put me down I would wake up screaming.  I slept for the rest of the night on my Mom's chest in their bed.  She told Mimi that she hadn't been that tired since the hospital! oops.  Sorry Mom and Dad!
Exciting Events: On Monday night, June 3, we celebrated Uncle Russ' birthday and went to Island Breeze.  Mom loved her food!!  Mom and Dad also tried to take me to a didn't turn out exactly as Mom planned.  Usually I fall right asleep in the ERGO.  When they first got there I was being a good boy and sleeping.  But, I woke up because it was so loud in there.  Mom stood on the side aisle and fed me while in the ERGO.  She was pretty impressed with herself!  It was a great place to try it out 'cause it was nice and dark and everyone was paying attention to the movie.  I was eating fine and sleeping but Dad wanted to give Mom a break so they switched and Mom went and sat down.  I just wanted to be held by Mom so I was super fussy.  Dad had to take me in the hallway because I was being too loud.  He lied to Mom when she texted and asked if he was watching the movie.  She was mad at him afterwards.  Next time I think they will get a babysitter for me!
Looking forward to: I am super excited for my 3 month birthday on June 11th!  And, I can't wait to go see Mimi and Pop Pop's house in Atlanta for Father's Day weekend! 
I LOVE playing with this monkey while I am getting my diaper changed!

oops.  this was one of the nights that I didn't want to sleep in my crib so Dad held me on his chest!

Front porch sittin' and sucking my thumb like a champion! I look like such a big boy in this picture!

Morning sleep time with Dad!

Week 10 & 11

Age: 10 Weeks (Monday, May 20th, 2013) & 11 Weeks (Monday, May 27th, 2013)
Weight & Height:  I had a pediatrician appointment on Monday, May 20, 2013.  I weighed 12lb 4oz.  I was 22.8in long! I am growing like a weed! My mom and Mimi weighed me on Memorial Day, my 11 week birthday, and I weighed 13 pounds!  My mom was so excited.  She gets very happy when I gain weight because I am just drinking breast milk and she feels very accomplished!
Things I enjoy: I love my activity mat.  I lay on it and look at the snow leopard that plays music and flashes it's lights for 20-30 minutes!  My mom puts me on the activity mat right outside of the bathroom door when she takes showers.  I am kept occupied most of that time.  Sometimes I get a little bored and yell and scream while she is in the shower so she hurries up, hops out, and scoops me up off the ground and feeds me.  I have loved having my mom home from work.  We have been doing a lot of activities together.  These last two weeks we have gone on a hike on Thursday morning's with the Bambino Brigade at Radnor Lake.  I get to ride in the ERGObaby carrier while my mom hikes.  It has been a lot of fun.  After we hike we go over to Aunt Chandra and Lincoln's house and hang out for a little while.  We have gone to lunch and then to the zoo with Whitney and Palmer Kay.  It has been so much fun.  I hope that we do this every Thursday!
Tough Times: On Tuesday, May 28th I was so constipated.  My Mom was so upset.  She was really glad that she was at Chandra's house while I was crying so hard.  We had all gone on a little walk and when we got back to their house I was in pain and my tummy hurt so bad.  I hadn't pooped in 2 whole days.  Mom called Dad at work and he left work early and met us at Chandra's house and took me home.  When we got home Mom and Dad had to stick a thermometer in my bottom.  It didn't hurt.  Mom gave me a Coconut Oil massage that I love so much and then I took a warm bath in the sink to help me poop.  Finally after a few hours, I let it all out.  Mom and Dad were so happy and I felt so much better!
Exciting Events: Mimi and Pop Pop came up to visit for Memorial Day weekend!  Mimi and Mom and I all went shopping on Sunday and Pop Pop and Dad went golfing. On Sunday night we went to BrickTops again! It is my favorite restaurant! Then, on Monday, Mom and Dad had a party for Memorial Day and all of our neighbors and Aunt Jill, Uncle Russ, Addison, and Daron came over! It was a lot of fun.  On Monday, May 27th I slept in my crib for the first time!!  I did a really good job and Daddy watched me on the video monitor every second!  Mom slept like a log the entire night!
sleeping in my crib like a big boy!

Everyone loves sitting in Mimi's lap!

I kept telling Mom and Dad that I didn't want to take any more pictures but they wouldn't listen!

Looking forward to: I am so excited to go home to Mimi and Pop Pop's house in Atlanta and meet a bunch of family!  I even get to meet my new friend Colton John Mullen while I'm there.  He was born on May 30th!  I am so excited to have a bunch of friend-boys.  All of my Mommy's friends have boys and she is SO EXCITED for me to grow up with all of them!
