Wow, after several years ive decided to try and resurrect this little blog of mine. I recently told a friend I missed having a place to write. Then out of nowhere a blog "challenge" if you will came about on a public group im in. So here I am and I'm going to try and keep this thing going. Bare with me as I make changes and update content. Feel free to sift through my old posts, you just might learn something new about me....

2 Weeks Old!

I can't believe he is 2 weeks old already. Time really is flying by way to quickly! Aiden is changing so quickly too. He can hold his head up pretty well. If I stick my tongue out at him he will copy me which is adorable. We went to the dr. Friday and he weighed in at 7lbs 11oz! The kid has almost put on a pound from his birth weight! He came home at 6lbs 3oz, so he's really put on a lot in 2 weeks. Guess all the breastfeeding trouble is worth it after all! He is getting chubby cheeks and has a little tummy too! He lost his umbilical cord stump on Tuesday. So now he has a cute belly button to kiss! His daddy is teaching him to give the "thumbs up" which he knows annoys me! *He always gives me a thumbs up in my face and wants Aiden to do the same!* We are starting to get the hang of his different cries and fussiness.

He still sleeps with us in our bed but we are starting nap times in his bed side bassinet. So we are hoping that we can transition him into that for night times and then within a few months into his crib. He loves to be held and we are starting to spoil him with it. We are spending countless nighttime hours sleeping in the rocking chair with him. Again it's okay for now, but we are trying to slow this habit down so that he will eventually be able to be put down when groggy and fall asleep on his own MOST the time. He smiles in his sleep and is staying awake and being more alert during the day. He is just soo darn adorable! Enjoy some of the more recent pictures of him. I could post a MILLION, but I will just share some of my personal favorites.

He is so sweet! Don't worry about the transition! Logan exclusively co-slept (not out plan!) for 6-7 weeks & not he goes down drowsy but awake like a champ. We did a slow transition but now he stays in his crin in his room the entire night ( I go & nurse in the rocker). Hang in the with the breastfeeding!
