12 Weeks

12 weeks!  I made it!  When Silas was first born, I had it in my mind that once I made it to the 12 week mark, then things would click for me.

Thankfully it was right around 8 weeks when I felt like the chaos of being a first time mom started to settle down.  And now that we're at 12 weeks, everybody's feeling great!

Silas is a big baby!  His new record for sleeping is 12 straight hours (actually 11 hours, 51 minutes, but we'll give you the extra 9 minutes, buddy!)

I got to experience Silas' first real laugh yesterday.  I was undressing him and getting ready to pull his sleeve off his arm (the part he hates the most).  I pulled his arm up and started to slide the sleeve off  and for whatever reason, Silas thought that was the funniest thing and let out a laugh!   I tried to get another laugh out of him by making funny faces and sounds, but he would only smile.

He can now fit into 3 month clothes....some onesies are too short for him (this is both because he is tall and wears cloth diapers).  The outfit he's wearing in this post's picture is a 3 month outfit and the onesie is a little tight lengthwise.  I'm already buying 6 month clothes because we have plenty of 3 month clothes and I have a feeling that I'll be packing away a second set of clothes that are too small for him.

I went to Target the other day and passed the newborn section of clothes.  How was Silas ever that small???

Excuse me, I'm going to go sob in the corner while hugging my baby.

It's Friday!  What are YOUR plans for the weekend?

We have none!

I suspect I'll do some light grocery shopping, hang out with Silas and Mr. Pribs, wash a ton of cloth diapers and go to church.

We go crazy on the weekends!

Have a good one!

Lately during the Day

Silas is paying more attention to objects in front of him.  He follows me with his eyes when I walk around the room.  He turns his head when I talk to him.  The other day he held his hand in front of his face and stared at it for about 2-3 minutes.

We're scrambling to get Silas into all of his 3 month old clothes because he's growing like a weed and getting too tall for many of his pants.

Currently, Silas' bedtime routine involves watching the evening news while drinking some milk and then getting swaddled up and dozing off.

2 Month Appointment

 Silas had his 2 month appointment last week.  He had his first shots!  Things went pretty well for the most part.  Two doctors looked at Silas and both doctors told us that we were doing a great job and to feed Silas as much as he wants (he's already eating us out of the house).  Silas weighed 13# 4 oz and was 25 inches long.  He has grown 4.5 inches since being born!  He's already too tall for some of his 3 month old clothes.

When it came time for shots, Silas was already fussy because the doctor had just checked his ears, which Silas did NOT like.  The nurse had Rob hold Silas on his lap and before I knew it, Silas' eyes widened and he started WAILING.

The good news is that he wasn't extremely fussy afterwards, he didn't get a fever,  and he went to bed that night with no issues.
