I ♥ Faces - Pets

This week's theme at I ♥ Faces is PETS. My first "baby" Scout has taken a backseat since Lane's arrival, and has been such a sweet dog even though she isn't getting as much attention as she once did. I can't wait until Lane grows up a little and can run and play with her!

My First Mother's Day

I dreamed about being a mother for so long, so Mother's Day this year was extremely special. I am so thankful to have Lane in my life and absolutely love being a mother. I love feeding him, holding him, picking out his cute clothes, taking him shopping and out to eat, giving him baths, and even changing his diaper! Being a mommy is exhausting, but I wouldn't change it for the world. I also have to say that I have the best mom I could ask for and a wonderful mother-in-law as well! They adore Lane and would do anything for him!

I had a great Mother's Day. Kyle and Lane got me a cute card and season passes to the zoo! We had a delicious lunch over at Mum's house with her, Kori and Mitch. Mom got me a cute book with Lane's handprint inside. Then we went to Pops and Gran's and ate Macaroni Grill takeout. I got a mom frame and a cute card that had a recording of Lane's cry the day I went back to work when you opened it.

Here are some pictures of my special day!

3 months old!

Well, time has flown by again and this little guy is 3 months old now! (Actually I am late on this post, so he is 3 1/2 months old!) We are loving every minute with our little boy. He is starting to develop a personality and is smiling and talking more and more each day. He had a big month full of firsts and I can't wait to see what comes next!

*These pictures were taken on his exact 3 month birthday...June 5, 2010.


-Wears size 1 diapers. Wears either Pampers or Costco brand.
-Wears size 0-3 month clothes. And can still fit in a handful of newborn outfits! ha!
-Sleeps through the night! Usually goes to bed between 9 and 10 and sleeps until 5 or 6.
-Eats 5-6 oz every 4 hours. Takes Enfamil Gentle-Ease Formula.
-Weighed 12 lbs 4 oz at 3 months and 16 days. So probably weighed almost 12 lbs at 3 months.

-Loves to kick and move his arms around.
-Likes watching tv! Enjoys Nick Jr., and I bought him his first Baby Einstein DVD that he will watch the whole way through. Also likes watching Glee with mommy and kicks and coos the whole time!
-Loves his daddy's "SURPRISED" face. Makes him laugh every time!
-Loves stuffed animals. Will grasp and squeeze them, and likes to put them into his mouth.
-Also loves his Silkies. He has 4 different ones, and loves them all. Likes to have them right next to his face and will grab them tightly with his hands.
-Still takes the pacifier, and loves it!
-Stares at himself in the mirror and smiles and talks to himself!
-Still likes to be swaddled at night.

-Sticks his tongue out a lot and drools a bunch!
-Still has the umbilical hernia, though it has gone down a lot and looks a lot better.
-Cries every time he is put in his carseat, but is fine once he gets his paci and silky. Is content while car is moving but usually cries when we are stopped!
-Still takes medicine for his reflux, but takes a stronger dose twice a day.
-Pinches the inside of my arm when he is hungry...and it hurts!!
-Rubs his eyes when he is sleepy.
-Arches his back and throws his head back when he gets angry! A taste of what's to come in a couple of years...

-Took his first road trip to see Paw and the Snowden's in San Angelo. Did great in the car!
-Also took his first swim at Mum's house and didn't really enjoy it. He has been twice since and liked it much better.
-Sat in his Bumbo seat for the first time on May 27, 2010 and did pretty well! Is fine in it for about 5 minutes and then starts crying and arching his back.
-Spent his first night away from Mommy when we went to Mexico for Brittany's wedding. Stayed with Mums 2 nights and Gran 1.
-Had his first playgroup with the babies from our childbirth class. (more on this in a post coming up!)

-Has giggled out loud only a few times, but it wasn't very loud.
-Has become much smilier and coos a lot more.
-Can stand up well when being held. Sometimes turns one foot in and stands on the edge of it, but is starting to flatten out his feet better when standing.
-Still sleeps in the pack n' play next to our bed, but is getting ready to transition to his crib soon!

AND...he's still the cutest thing ever!

I ♥ Faces - Babies!!!

I have been participating in I ♥ Faces contests since long before I was even pregnant. I always longed to have my own baby to photograph and enter in the weekly competitions. And now I have my own baby and this week's theme is BABIES! I had such a hard time choosing a photo for this week. Since I had Lane I have taken thousands of pictures of him, so it was a difficult choice. My husband helped me choose this one, and I think he picked a good one! Lane just looks so sweet and peaceful and I love his personalized outfit. He was 9 weeks old here. It's hard to believe he is already 3 months old now!

Now go check out all the other cute babies at I ♥ Faces!!
