Things around here are crazy busy with two boys, but I really want to keep up with blogging as much as possible because this really is my diary and I don’t want to forget a thing when it comes to these two little boys of ours. Due to time constraints here goes an update for both boys.
Weight/Length: Nicholas is 37 and 1/2 inches tall and 34 pounds and at Jack’s one month visit he was 21 inches long and 11.6 pounds and I am anxious for his two month appointment this week!!! I am almost two weeks over due, but we went to Va for a week and then I injured my ankle!
Sleep: Nicholas is still sleeping around 11 hours at night and taking anywhere between 2 and 3 hour naps and Jack is sleeping at least 15 hours a day, I don’t keep track of it and today he hasn’t slept much, I actually think he might already be teething! I don’t remember Nicholas starting so early!
Food: Nicholas is pretty picky still, but lucky for us loves some fruit, you name it, he loves it, especially grapes and blueberries! He also loves applesauce, apples, peaches, pears and cantaloupe!! He loves yogurt, peanut butter sandwiches, still likes bananas here and there, but not everyday, fruit snacks and goldfish. I am pretty sure he loves going to church because they give him goldfish!!
Jack loves breast milk!:)
Developments: Nicholas is saying full on sentences and telling us when he needs a new diaper, usually! He is so so loving, says awe if you get hurt or he has to say goodbye to a friend or family member or when he hugs you, it is so so sweet! He is so hyper, has major two year old temper tantrums, is so sweet, so creative and so fun!! I love him so much and this might be the best age ever!! Nicholas loves his brother! Nicholas still loves to read, play trains, play with play-dough, do puzzles with mommy and ride his bike. I recently got him a balance bike and cannot wait to get my ankle all better so we can get outside and play on it and continue our walks and fun times at the playground!!!
Nicholas also loves to sing and his favorite songs are: The wheels on the bus, frosty the snowmen, twinkle twinkle little star, you are my sunshine and his ABC’s. He loves to blurt out his ABC’s any old time of day, I love when he sings and we can sing together!!! Books are still a must before nap and before he goes to bed and any ole time of day he wants to read. I love that he loves to read so much!!
Jack is holding his head up, possibly teething, sleeping and eating super well and cooing nonstop. He loves to smile at his mama, daddy, gigi and favorite people. He loves his brother Nicholas and we think he might be teething!!
Things I am thankful for: I am so thankful I get to be a mom to Nicholas and Jack and that Derrick is my husband, for our families who are so supportive and for amazing friends at this stage in my life who do this life with me and are so supportive and caring!!!
Things I am looking forward to: Watching Nicholas and Jack grow each day and being a family of four and making new memories!!!
Jack is here and I never did an update for the last few weeks so here
Size of Baby B/Developments this Week: They had no idea at this point, but he was the size of a watermelon according to the internet!!
Weight Gain So Far: I gained several pounds the last few weeks lol, I was eating like a man, I was so hungry:) My final weight was around 33 pounds and I am now 25 down!
Cravings: I am pretty sure it was mostly chocolate!
Aversions: None at the end!
Symptoms: Jack was four days late and those last few weeks I thought he was never going to come and then he did and he is amazing!!!!
Movement: Not too much, but more than I felt with N at this point!!
Jack is here and I am so thankful, we are so busy and I have major mom guilt and am doing my best to be the best mom of two I can be!! It’s crazy!! I am on call at all hours and life is good with two, but again crazy and to be honest really hard, so the reason I haven’t blogged is because I have NO TIME!:), but we are alive here and well and I am hanging in there!
I haven’t posted anything in so long except pictures here and there, but to be honest I am just trying to figure out this mom of two thing and trying to be in the present with the boys as well as trying to keep everyone alive, seriously!! So I will be back, but not sure when. Nicholas and Jack are keeping me so busy.
