Ben's Two Month Update

Saturday, January 30, 2016

Ben weighs 10 pounds 13 ounces. Still a tall one at 23 inches. He's in 3 month clothing; but in pajamas, he's almost too long when he stretches.

He is in size 1 diapers, but not for long. They are getting tight, but we're trying to use them up before moving to size 2.

He eats every 2 to 2.5 hours during the day. He's sleeping alright in the pack n' play, and usually eats every 3 hours at night. He's a good boy though, and goes back to sleep after he eats. Still, more sleep would be a lovely thing.

Ben loves his big brothers, Daddy's eyebrows, and my red lips (when I wear lipstick). He will smile at all of those things. He hates being swaddled when awake, or being sleepy and not in bed.

Big brothers still can't wait to start playing with him. Jonah actually asked the Dr. the other day if we could get a walking and talking baby. I about died laughing.


He's still a very sweet, and happy baby. I've always thought of Jonah has my promise from God, Levi as my gift, and I think Ben is my blessing.
All three man cubs at 2 months.


Humbling

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

So if you want to be humbled, try running after 10 months of not running and popping out a baby...

But I did it. Well, I've started training for a Color Run. So I'm doing something.

Also, can someone inform my knees and hips that I'm 27, not 57? That'd be great....


New Years Eve 2015

Thursday, December 31, 2015

Didn't do anything super special tonight... Had cookies, drank some sparkling juice, and set off a few fountains in our backyard. Low key, but just right for our man cubs.
Jonah watching the fireworks outside. He loved it.
Levi went inside during the fireworks because he got scared. So he watched them on a chair in front of the window.

Quotables:
Sparkling Cider: Bubbling (Jo meant bubbly)
During prayer, Levi kept interrupting to make sure Daddy thanked God for Ben.


Ben is One Month

Wednesday, December 30, 2015

Baby Ben has been with us for a whole month now!
Ben weighs just over 8 pounds 11 ounces. Just like his brothers, he is a tall one. He is in the 75% for height at 22.2 inches. Man cub number three is still in newborn clothing, but barely... he is almost too long.

He is still in newborn sized diapers, but not for long. They are getting kinda tight.

He eats every 2 to 2.5 hours during the day. The nights are still crazy. Eating sometimes every 1.5 hours, and sometimes giving us a 3.5 hour stretch. Justin and I are ready for more sleep.

Ben loves his big brothers, noise, and his wubbanub. He HATES being cold, being swaddled, and peace and quiet. Big brothers can't wait to actually start playing with him.

We are so blessed by our good boy. He's a very sweet, and happy baby.


Christmas Quotables

Saturday, December 26, 2015

It is so funny to have young kids who can talk. This Christmas Jonah and Levi had a couple quotables that I need to share.

Mistletoe = Mr. Toe

Frosty the snowman = Frosting the snowman

Silly boys.
