Picnic In The Park

We FINALLY have a beautiful weekend in Texas. We decided have a picnic in the park and then let Tyler play for a bit. Daddy decided it was a good idea to show Tyler the big boy slides. He was in heaven. My little dare devil has no fear. This is going to be so much fun when I have to take him and Ali to the park by myself.

Happy 3 Months

Baby Girl is 3 months old today!!! She is still such a blessing and the sweetest happiest baby ever. She hardly ever cries unless she is tired or really hungry. I can't believe how fast she is growing up. She is now offically a baby and no longer a new born. I am so excited the newborn stage is cute and all but kind of boring too. Now we can finally start getting into the fun stuff.

Here are some things you accomplished this month baby girl:

  1. You can hold your head up very good. You can now get it to a 90 degree angle and you are starting to push up with your arms. Not bad for a certain little lady that hates tummy time.
  2. You learned to roll over belly to back. This is your way of avoiding tummy time.
  3. You love standing. You now stand flat footed and not on the sides of your feet. Your gonna have some strong little legs.
  4. You had your first illness. Luckily is was just a little cold.
  5. We have noticed that you like to watch TV. You seem to really like anything with flashing lights.
  6. You have stopped sleeping through the night. You are waking up at all hours of the night for the first feeding. The only nice thing about this is that no matter what time this feeding is you don't wake up again until between 6:30 and 7:30. You usually go back to sleep until around 9.
  7. You still love your sleep. You don't like to be up for more than an hour and then you are back to bed for about 2 hours.
  8. You are awesome at putting yourself to sleep. At night I put you to down awake and I don't here a peep out of you. During the day when I put you down, you fuss for 20 seconds and then you are out.
  9. I have no idea how many ounces you are eating because you are exclusively breast feed still. I am so happy we were able to work this out. It makes me so happy to know that you are getting all your nutrition from me and not the store. Plus I love our little special bonding times, even if it is 2am. You have the sweetest face when you are at the breast.
Wow, baby girl I can't believe how much you are changing. You bring such joy to us and we can't wait to see what the next month brings.

I'm gonna eat you

Big Boy Bumbo

Tyler is a little too big for the Bumbo but he likes to try and fit in it sometimes.

Here is video of my little chatterbox. She just finished eating so she was in a great mode. Make sure you turn your volume up.

Jump Jump Time

I started doing the 30 day shred to try and lose some of this baby weight that I have left. I found out Tyler loves doing it too, except he calls it Jump Jump time. Here are some photos of him doing the exercises and Ali playing.

Arm Circles

Jumping Jacks

Push Ups

Daddy Feed Me

Today Tyler got the boppy pillow, laid it across Troy's lap and then said Daddy feed me. He is such a silly boy. To bad Daddy's boobs don't work that way. I love the fact that my kiddo thinks that baby milk comes from the body and not some manufacturing plant.

New Stroller

I got a new double stroller the a couple weeks ago. I really liked my other one but this one caught my interest because it can be a single or a double. Since Tyler is in school I wanted to be able to go running with just Ali but in the summer I will want to run with both of them. It has some flaws but I think we will be able to make this one work. The weather was so great today that after the afternoon naps I took the kiddos for a walk. Ali actually stayed in the stroller and was happy the whole time. Tyler loves being in a stroller but Ali is a different story. She likes is when I wear her the best.

Sharing is Caring

Tyler knows how much Ali loves his little radio, so today he insisted on bringing it to her during her bumbo time. Then he had to go get his puter so he could play with her. He really is such a great big brother. I hope his love for her continues through the teenage years.

I Count

Here is video of little man counting. Make sure you turn your volume up.

Rolling Over

Ali figured out how to avoid tummy time! She has learned to roll belly to back. I know this is the easiest of the rolling milestones but I am still super excited for my baby girl. She did it about 10 times in a row, so I know it wasn't a fluke.

I Can Hold My Head Up!!

Miss Ali can finally hold her head up!! Yay for my lazy baby girl.

I also found out that Miss Ali loves sitting in the Bumbo chair. Tyler hated this thing. So I am really glad that one of my kids likes it.

I love how she always has her tongue sticking out:) She such a little cutie

I just had to share this with everyone. My Bailey is so pathetic!! She was sleeping like this until I moved to get the camera.

Cute Stories

I have to type these out before I forget them.

Today, Tyler's teacher told me that she was rubbing is back at nap time and he looked up at her and said, 'kiss'.

The other day, Tyler's teacher told me that during nap time if one of his friends talk Tyler puts his finger over his mouth and says, 'shhh friends are sleeping'.

The other day I went to get Tyler out of bed and I laid in bed with him for a few minutes. He gets up puts his blankets on me, then says hug and gives me a hug and a kiss. Then he gets down and turns his moon and stars (lights on the ceiling) on and turns his music on. He proceeds to shut the door and tells me night night. Of course two seconds later he comes running back in the room telling me to get up.

This boy is just too cute sometimes, I could just eat him up.

2 Month Check Up

Miss Ali Paige had her 2 month check up today. My little peanut is growing like a weed. She is now 13 lbs 1 oz (85%) and officially 23 in (55%). I think the measured her wrong though, they had her leg bent when they did it. When I got home I measured her and she was 25 in. She got two shots and HATED them. She reached a note in her screaming I had never heard before. Overall she is doing great. The pedi is not worried about her amount of sleep yet. We need keep an eye on that over the next 4 months though. She is right on track with her neck control. Even though she hates tummy time, she can lift it to a 45 degree angle.

Zoo Day

We finally have a day of nice weather. We decided to take advantage of it and take a trip to the zoo. Tyler loves the zoo and always has a blast there. Ali did what she does best, sleep. I think she slept the whole time we were there.
