Brotherly Love

I imagine A saying in this picture..."What do you think you're doing in my picture? Dad! He's in my picture!" Blaze..."Would you stop crying about it already. "
A...."Okay, lets act like we like each other so we can get this over with."

Really, I do think Blaze is finally figuring out what this is all about. He still gets a little jealous at times and we have to watch his big feet, but all in all he is doing really well :) They will definitely be best friends before we know it!

Helping out a friend :)

For anyone who is interested....head on over to B&K's adoption fundraiser!! She gives away great prizes every week for just $5/entry :) Of course it's for a great cause to bring home their little girl from Africa! In order to do this, they need your help!

They also have a fundraiser for ordering flowers that you should check out! If you love gardening and planting flowers, check it out! There is a button to click on her sidebar to head over to the site! I plan on making a few purchases here really soon! Thanks everyone!

2 month update!

We have hit the 2 month mark! Well, we actually hit the 2 month mark on the 5th, so I am a little behind on posting updates :)

Our little man is doing so well!! Since he was 5 weeks early, developmentally, we are supposed to add a month and a half to the normal, full-term milestones, which makes him only around 3 weeks or so. So...we are finally cooing a lot more and just getting ready to start smiling at mommy when she makes funny faces. I can get little smirks out of him occasionally, which works for me! I know it's just right around the corner.

He is also doing really well with lifting his head. He looks like a little drunk man most of the time, but is really working on those neck muscles! Mommy is so proud :) We also love our tummy time when we are wide awake and will sigh and coo like crazy! It's so stinking adorable!

Blaze update...he is getting better at not being quite so jealous. There for a while, as soon as I would start feeding A, he would decide that he needed a drink from the sink (yea, I know...the In-laws started that), go outside even just to stand and not do anything, or play. And by the way, when he wants something, he will just keep barking at you until he gets it. And...his bark is incredibly loud given how large he is. So, he is getting better at understanding that this little thing that cries and poops and disturbs his sleep, takes a little more priority. I know that one day he will be so incredibly protective of A and they will have the best relationship. He is already to the point where he will come running when A is really crying and make sure that I am not doing anything to hurt his baby. It's pretty cute :)

So back to my little man...we had our 2 month check up yesterday. He now weighs 10lb. 15.5oz and is 23 inches long! He is growing so much!! I just can't believe it! We also got a couple shots, which almost made mommy cry because he was crying so much. But we made it through and do not have to go back until he is 4 months! Pictures to come soon!!

Lots to report!

Ah, I have so much to update!! I truly am finding it impossible to blog while I am at now that I am back to work, I will try to update as much as I can :)

Which brings me to my first topic....I am back to work. It sucks. I wish I could stay at home with my little man. However, the hospital bills on top of all of our regular bills are pounding at my doorstep. So, back to work I had to go. This is my second week back. My first day back didn't go too bad, it was just super long. Each day slowly got better. As long as I am keeping myself busy, I am okay :) Even though, I miss my little man like crazy! I rush out the door at 5 so that I can pick him up from the sitter as soon as possible.

He is doing really well at the sitter's. She only has him for a total of 3 hours a day. The rest of the day he is with his daddy. They are getting along great too :) I am so proud of my hubby!

We have made a breakthrough!! I am pleased to report that he is now fully nursing from me! (well, when I am home from work) This Saturday was the first day it happened. I was so excited!! And, he has decided that he does not have an issue with my right side anymore, which makes me very happy! No more having to use the nipple shield to get him to nurse!! Yay! It's exciting stuff I tell you...

And I am not really sure where the time has gone, but my little man will be 2 months old this Friday! He is getting really good at holding his head up (we still wobble a little, but he is getting steadier) and he is starting to make a couple more little sighs. He is also starting to notice things more. I can't believe how much he has changed since we brought him home from the hospital.

We go for our 2 month checkup on Monday...he is getting more shots and I think I might cry at this one. The nurse warned us that the shots this time are much worse than any of the others he has had. I am definitely not looking forward to it. I don't like to hear my little man crying.

I think that's all for now! I am trying to catch up on blogs and send please don't think I am not reading, because I definitely am!
