Chandler and Christopher drs. Appointments

The boys went to their drs appointments this past week. All went good.

Christopher passed his hearing test, could not finish his vision check so they will do it again next year. He weighs 35 lbs (50th percentile) and is 42 in. (90th percentile). He did get 3 shots. It was probably harder on him this time around since he is more aware of whats going on. But other than that he did great! He also mentioned he will be VERY VERY tall as a adult. duh I could have told him that.

Chandler is meeting all his milestones for 2 months. He weighs 10 lbs. 8 oz (10th percentile) and is 23 in. (30th percentile). He only gained 10 oz in 3 weeks but doctor said he seems to be doing fine. We are to bring him in every 2 weeks to do a weight check and to give us a better idea of his curve. He said he might just be taking mommas growth curve than daddies at this point. Chandler got 3 shots and 1 by mouth. So glad that is over for a few months now!

This weekend we took a mini vacation to Waco to visit some friends. This was the first time in a hotel for the boys. It was great to get out of town.

Chandler at 10 weeks old...

Chandler is about to be 11 weeks old and is growing soooo fast! He has his 2 month appointment on friday where he will get some shots :(

Christophers 4th Birthday

We had a great time at christophers birthday party. He was surrounded by family and close friends. Christopher was super excited about his new Iron Man items along with his spiderman, Toy Story items and water sprinkler for outside fun. Christopher is truly loved no doubt!

Birthday parties galore!

Man we are a busy family during the summer when it comes to birthdays! Now that chandler is here that will make two birthdays in May, the 6th and then 10 days later on the 16th is logans, the in June is my birthday then in July on the 14th is Christophers.
This summer Christophers birthday lands in the middle of the week. So we decided to make it the weekend before. I think I might have waited too long before planning it. lol Right now christopher has changed his mind from Spiderman and Superman to Iron Man. It is alot easier to plan a spiderman. They have so much out there for it. But Iron Man, even though the new movie is out, I am not finding a whole lot. I hope we can make it cool for him. I just love seeing his face when he sees something like a cake. Plus family is coming up so it will be even better!

Took chandler to dr today

I was suspecting that he had thrush, a yeast infection of the mouth caused from nursing, well I was right! They were able to squeeze me in and yup that is what he has. So glad I was able to get him in before the weekend started... They were able to get him a prescription to get it taken care of. I am even able to use it for myself as well.

I am sad though. They weighed him today. He has not gained very much in the last 6 weeks. He has only gained 1 pound 10 ounces.At birth he weighed 8 pounds. Then he dropped to 7 pounds 9 ounces. And then at 2 weeks old he was up to 8 pounds 5 oz. But today at 8 weeks old he is only 10 pounds even.
I know he is a long baby so I am hoping thats why. Since he is exclusively breastfed this worries me. But I was talking to shawna a good friend of mine and realized that it might be because he is not nursing long enough to get the hind milk or the fatty milk they get after nursing for about 15 min. He nurses often but not long. So this is something we will be working on to get him to gain some weight between now and his 2 month appointment in a few weeks, I love breastfeeding, and I really want this to work out!

Proud Moment

As Christopher has been blossoming with his speech, he is now not only making improvements but is now helping Logan talk.... Logan came walking into the living room with my blue workout ball. Christopher walks towards him saying "Thats a cool blue ball bubu"... Then logan responds saying "ball"

Needless to say I was soooooo proud of both of them.

Chandler 2 months old

So I can not believe Chandler is now 2 months old. He is growing way too fast! I love it now though cause he is cooing and smiling all the time. His personality is coming out and he is such a sweet baby!
