2 Months Old Already

Monday Augie turned eight weeks old. Technically Friday he was 2 months (if you are going by the date...). He's turning into such a little man. It's absolutely incredible to watch him grow. He's had a lot of family visitors. It's normal to have both sets of Grandparents, his Aunt Boo Boo & Cousin Lehnie stop by frequently. 


Lehnie is going to be a big sister in May so she's getting a lot of practice too. She think's he is soooooo cute AND prefers to call him by his formal name, August.  

Cousin Lehnie
Grandpa Alan came by for a visit last week. Someone was a little fussy and is still getting a hang of the bottle. We currently give him about one a week to make sure he is used to it when the time rolls around for day care when I go back yo work (just about 3 weeks away now). Yesterday he had two bottles from Dad and they were much more successful. In the next few weeks we'll practice a little more.

Grandpa Alan
Augie is very alert and loves looking around the room. He really enjoys shadows and inanimate objects on the wall. They make him VERY happy. He follows voices, smiles, coos and grunts up a storm. We've even caught a laugh or two. His favorite, and most talkative time of the day tends to be at 2:30am and 4:30am! The squeals make it easier to be up at that time. I know you are not supposed to "play" during the night time, but I can't help laugh when he's totally "geeked" out and smiley. Dad seems to get more early morning laughs and giggles than Mom. I think they talk guy stuff which seems to be more intriguing than what he and I talk about all day.

Dad & Augie
Friday was Augie's two month pediatrician visit and he is pleasantly perfect in every way. I wish I would have taken a picture to compare to his first Dr's visit.

His new stats:
  • Weight: 10lbs 2 oz (17th percentile)
  • Height: 22 inches-he's grown a whole 2 inches in 2 months! (17th percentile)
  • Head: Huge... 39.5 cm (35th!)
He was a great patient and only screamed for a short time when given his vaccinations. He was a bit fussy all night and the vaccination sites were sore for him. His little painful wimpers broke my heart. At least he is set until his four month checkup in May.

More fun updates to come!

I'm Pregnant-Don't Comment on My Weight

I am now 30 weeks pregnant with my second child. I'm excited...I'm over this pregnancy though. I'm sure several of you can relate. I now have an inquisitive, adventurous and busy 2.75 year old running around. It's been a hot summer. I hate the humidity. I'm glad we are only a few days away the official start of Fall. AND I'm ready to say F you to anyone else who feels it appropriate to comment on the additional weight I have gained during this pregnancy.

Before having Augie, I was in the best shape of my life. I exercised daily-vigorously. I ate healthy and cooked elaborate, fun meals. I had hobbies.

This pregnancy has been harder on my body and my brain. I started 10 lbs heavier, less fit, more sleep deprived and still searching to find a balance between being a Mom, maintaining a strong relationship with Andy and being the best in my work life as possible.

I've been to the Dr. plenty of times - Had plenty of ultrasounds - Had potential gall bladder pains/…

Going Gluten Free-Dairy Free

Over the past several weeks I've changed my diet drastically. The wee one is a gassy little man and as I have adjusted my diet, I've noticed things have changed for the better. There is a lot of information floating around about eliminating certain foods from your diet which can irritate babies digestive systems. The major players that can affect infants are dairy, wheat, soy, eggs, beans, broccoli, spinach, peanuts, and citrus fruits, among a few others. I have cut all of these out of my diet except for eggs. This means no cheese, greek yogurt and other good things that I love to eat....however I've noticed that with cutting these things out, not only is Augie's digestive system is mine. It's a win win. Of course I still miss eating a few of these things (specifically cheese, greek yo and peanut butter!), but I feel pretty good with the whole process. 
So, with undertaking this adventure we have embarked on some new dishes in the kitchen. We are still g…

Roller Derby Shower!

This is me, Sinful Sally, on skates just over a year ago. My last bout, before hanging up my skates for retirement, was in August 2010.

This is me now...

Today was the roller derby shower, hosted by my derby chicks that I used to spend 2-4 nights a week and numerous weekends every month.  I miss seeing them so often. And after skating a bout last night and staying out late to party, they made the baby shower a day to remember. It was, over the top, fantastic and a blast.

We played lots of games:

The baby picture game...bring your baby picture and try to pick out who is who. The draw what the baby will look like...using a paper plate on top of your head. The diaper game...split into teams of three, take one roll of TP, create a diaper as fast as you can with the WHOLE roll.

The name that tune (title and artist) with 17 songs which have the name Baby or Babe in the title. 

Turbo Trixie made a boat load of phenomenal food (I should have taken pictures: artichoke dip, homemade pretzels, mea…
