Two Months Old

Two months?  Can it really be all ready?  You have really become a member of this family this month.....you have gone to THREE birthday parties, Daddy's golf course, McDonald's and the grocery store.  You have played outside with bubbles and watched big brother Mason ride his scooter.   You are growing like a weed, despite all the spit up.  You are still in newborn clothes but you won't be for long.....thanks to your length.   I have caught you smiling in your sleep and when awake you love to look around and watch what everyone is doing......especially your big brother. 

Mason is falling more and more in love with you every day and always makes sure you are ok and happy.  He does not like when you cry and so when you are he tries to help settle you down the best he can.  Weather that is rocking you in your carseat, pushing your swing or trying to give you your pacifier he tries his best. 

This month your belly button popped out and we learned that you have a herniated belly button.  After a moment of panic and emergency trip to the doctor, we learned it was nothing crazy or in need for any kind of intervention at this time.  We just make sure it is soft and as you get older it will fix it's self.  Leaving behind nothing but an "outie".

Wishing time would slow down......once I blink you will be turning 18 and venturing out on your own. “I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be.”......but for now i am enjoying every moment, cuddle, spit up, feeding, bath and everything else we do together!

Nap Time

As River approaches 2 months we are still just letting him lead with eating and sleeping but we are starting to see more notable "awake" times and "nap" times. 
Today as Mason wanted to take a bath, River was ready for a nap......so we tried out his crib......

He seems to like it very much!!!  He fussed just a bit at the beginning and then he spit up and fussed but once I wiped it up he was right back to sleep.  Here's to hoping he is getting ready to have a routine very soon!

How We Celebrate 40

We stared by making decorations
Then added balloons and hung it on the door. We got our feet dirty with green paint
River needed a nap after getting his feet painted.
And while he slept Mason decorated party hats
And Mommy added some streamers and balloons to the dinning room.
Our finished cake.  Yes in the water we have fish, sharks and turtles!
 Mason was so excited for the cake.  Which we may have had BEFORE dinner!
 Party hats during dinner!
 Then the drum entertainment. Before we finished off the night with opening presents.  
Happy FOREieth Birthday Daddy!!!!!

Normal Day

Tom went golfing today.  It was suppose to rain and when it didn't he got out for a bit!  We met up after his round and Mason did some golfing.......

And River and I hung out in the car until he got hungry!!! 
After River ate we all went to our favorite place for lunch!!!!
This is only the second time we have all gone out together but it sure is nice to do every once in awhile : ) 

How River feels about his mother's obsession of taking pictures!  He is getting so big! Finally filling out the newborn clothes.

1/3 of my Valentines.......

I did not get pictures of the other two.  Mason has been spoiled by Nana and Papa with one on one time at a hotel!!!! Papa even took him swimming last night! 
They did come up to the house this afternoon and watched both boys so Tom and I could go out.  I think this is the first time we have gone out for Valentine's Day......it was a nice time just the two of us.......no pictures cause I left my phone at home!  
Now I am cuddling with a sleeping baby and watching girly movies.....I have the life.....well at least for the moment.

Mommy and Mason day

Today I got to spend my first day alone with Mason since before I went into the hospital in December!  No suprise that he picked the Zoo to spend the day at and as always we had a BLAST!  The weather was cool but dry and the zoo was EMPTY!

We missed seeing the baby lions but that was ok
We got to watch them train a bird instead!
 We can not wait until River is a bit older to join us at the zoo.......but for now just Mason and Mommy had an awesome day!
 When we got home River was sleeping like a baby and Daddy had a nice quiet day!

Yesterday I had my 6 week check-up and I got the all clear that I am all healed and able to do anything I want.  I do need to take it slow but will be back to my old self very very soon!
