Davis at 2 months


It's hard to believe another month has gone by and you are 2 months old!

Here is what you are up to these days.

* You are eating 7 times a day, usually waking up around 5am or so.  Nursing is going really well, and I'm so thankful!  You are actually pretty fast, so I was relieved to hear from the pediatrician that your growth is great.  It is always a relief to know you are getting what you need.  :-)


* You are not sleeping through the night yet, but you are so close.  You had a couple nights where you slept from 11pm until 7am, but you aren't consistent yet.  I'm hopeful that you will get there soon!

* You are in a good nap routine.  We had great success with using the Babywise with our other kids, so we've been using those same strategies with you.  So far, it seems to be working and you seem very well-rested!  We are still using the Swaddle Me and pacifiers help when you need soothing.


* You are wearing size 2 diapers.  We should have switched you over sooner, but we still had quite a few of the size 1's left over.  We couldn't let them go to waste!

* You weighed 13 lbs. 5 ozs. (75%) and measured (95%) at your checkup.  The pediatrician was very pleased with your growth.


* You are wearing 3-6 months clothes now.  You must be long-waisted because  you can still fit into some of your 3 months pants, but 3 month onesies and sleepers are definitely too short on you.

* You don't mind tummy time, but you don't necessarily love it either.  You are still sort of indifferent about it.  You have pretty decent neck control now, so you must be building those muscles!  :-)


* You are still sleeping in the pack n' play in our bedroom.  I really don't want to disturb the older kid's sleep, so I'm planning to wait until you are sleeping 12 hours at night before moving you in with your sister.

*  You have definitely "woken up" more recently, although you still have fairly short wake times throughout the day {usually just over an hour before going back down for nap}.  I love seeing your pretty blue eyes though.


You seem to be a low key baby, which is so nice.  You are in a good routine these days, but also flexible {Can we say naps on the go?} when you need to be.  Although my one-on-one time with you is hard to come by, I treasure your sweet snuggles and am trying to eat up every second of it.  

I love you more and more each day, Davis!

Savannah's 4th Birthday Celebration {Sesame Street Style}

I originally thought we'd let this be the first year we did a "friend" party for Savannah, but it ended up being too much for this sleep deprived mama of a newborn.  I just couldn't get it together, so we'll have to wait until next year.  Instead, we opted for a family birthday celebration.  We made an entire day out of it, which was so nice.


We started the day with the "Sesame Street Live" show.  Kevin took off a day of work {since it happened to be his birthday as well} so that we could enjoy the show as a family during the day.  We were actually a little bit late because I managed to leave the tickets at home and didn't realize it until we were about to park.  We made it back home and then back downtown, only missing about 10 minutes.


Savannah loved the show and was super attentive the entire time.  Brady was enthralled for the majority of the show, but got a little restless for the last 15 minutes or so.  Luckily, Davis slept in the Baby Bjorn the entire time!  :-)  I'd definitely recommend the show and Savannah is already asking if we can go again next year.


After the show, we picked up my grandmother and we all went out to lunch at Red Robin.  We let Kevin pick the restaurant since it was his special day too, but it works out well since it's such a kid-friendly restaurant.

After dinner, we let Savannah open up our present to her.  She seemed happy to add some costumes to her growing collection.


We had some birthday cake after bath time and were surprised by a quick visit from one of Savannah's friends who stopped by to drop off a gift for her.  It was a sweet surprise from a sweet little friend.



Our day wasn't anything large and elaborate, but it was so special and we made some priceless memories as a family.  

I'm so thankful for my 2 birthday buddies!
