Two Month's Old// 6.22.15

Two months ago I gave birth to the sweetest little boy. I really didn't know how much my life was going to change and I really am just so thankful. Life might be more tiring and stressful, but everything is so completely worth it when I get the biggest smiles and coo's, This month is much  better than last month because he is less fussy and we understand each other. I know his cries when he needs something whether it's being hungry, a gas bubble, or just being fussy to make noise.
"2 months and lovin' life"

He's wearing size 1 diapers and fitting into 0-3/3/3-6 month clothing. It really all depends on the brand. Gerber runs small so he is wearing 3-6 in that and Carters he is wearing 0-3/3 month. I have already packed away all of his newborn clothing and given some away. It was a sad, sad day... but he can't be my little baby forever.

He is so much more alert and actually looks at you when you are talking to him or making funny faces. He is eating non stop and will eat a bottle after I nurse him because I just can't produce enough for how often he wants to eat. He is rolling over like a pro and is starting to get control of his head. He get's lazy though and wants you to hold it for him, but we are working on that. He is so smiley and I can't wait to start hearing him laugh soon!
"Love that sweet smile"

He absolutely loves the water and being outdoors. He just looks up at the sky and is so curious of his surroundings. We took him out to the pool at my parents house and he was just relaxing and was so comfortable that he actually had a code brown! Lol!

Sleeping is still a struggle. He is not regular at all and will wake up 2-3 times one night and sleep 6 hours solid the next. We aren't giving him rice cereal yet and won't be for a little while. I can't wait for that solid 10-12 hours though! He does take good naps throughout the day though. I used to just cuddle him, but now I use that time to get stuff done around the house. It's a good hour and a half to myself and to our home. Haha.

At his two month check up he weighed in at 12 pounds and 23.5 inches! He's healthy as a horse and growing like a weed! We had to take his diaper warmer off of his changing table that's attached to our crib because they both wouldn't fit anymore! I put his one month and two month picture together. He really has chunked up and I could just eat up those cheeks.
"Such a difference in one month!"

Overall, he has stolen everyone's hearts and I fall more in love with him everyday. He is really starting to get a personality and everyday spent with him is a blessing!

Happy two months Walker! Mommy & Daddy love you to pieces.

Weekend recap

Walker is sleeping and the hubby is off today so I had a little time to myself for a little weekend recap. Dakota worked all weekend so it was me and little man all day and all night while daddy slept. I love spending time with my Son and I am going to miss it so much when I have to go back to work next month.

Friday was a chill day for us. We stayed at home all day and watched movies together. I wore him and got some stuff done around the house. Laundry is my never ending enemy and I tackled it completely. No clothes were left in the dryer or on the couch. Walker has started to chill out lately. Usually if he's not sleeping he's just crying. He has never just sat in his chair and relaxed looking around. He screams until you pick him up which means that I never get anything done. With him chilling out I actually can enjoy my lunch and unload the dishwasher. He was in a really good mood so I put him on his play mat and he was loving it. We also did tummy time and he rolled over for the first time. It was the sweetest thing ever. I was so excited and proud, but sad at the same time because my baby is growing up! My dad came home that night from a business trip and was missing Walker so we went over there to visit. My mom and dad can't get enough of little man.

Saturday Walker and I ran errands with Chandler and EllaRynn. She had some last minute stuff to get for Oakleigh's 2nd birthday party. We loaded up the kids and went around town. Walker did really well and only cried when he was hungry or had a dirty diaper. We even made it through lunch without him freaking out. I was one proud mom! When we got back to Chan's we had the babies on the play mat for their first play date. It was the cutest thing ever.  That night we went home and made daddy shrimp alfredo for dinner. I wore Walker in my K'tan and got everything pretty much done before Dakota got home. We got to enjoy a nice dinner and Dakota got some snuggles in while I cleaned up the kitchen. Seeing Dakota with Walker makes my heart melt every single time. I just think it's the sweetest sight in the world. After we put Walker to bed I was able to work on his hospital shadow box. I put all of our hospital bracelets in it and his little hat he wore. It looks so tiny now and really shows how much he has grown.

Sunday Walker and I headed over to Chandler's around noon and helped her set up for Oak's cherry on top party. It was the cutest 2nd birthday ever. She made cupcakes and bought tons of candy for the kids to decorate and bought ice cream and let the adults make Ice Cream Sundae's. After the fun all of the kids got in their bathing suits and played on the blow up slide. I stayed inside with Walker because it was so hot outside and he was already sweating from it being hot inside with everyone their. Once again he was a doll and only cried when he needed something. I think we are starting to turn over a new leaf here people! That night all of the friends stayed over and ordered pizza. Dakota got off work on time and was able to come over and chat for a few minutes before everyone started to leave.

It was a great weekend even though we didn't get to see much of Dakota. That just means we get all of this weekend to spend time with him. I hope everyone else had a wonderful weekend!
