Wyatt's 2 Month Check-up

Thursday, June 27, 2013

We had Wyatt's dreaded 2 month check-up this morning.  It really wasn't too bad...considering he was poked with 5 needles. :(  He did great!! Cried for a minute or two and then was fast asleep.  Our little guy is growing so much...I just can't get over it!  He weighed in at 13 pounds, 11.5 ounces, which puts him in the 88th percentile for weight.  He is now 24.25 inches long and his head circumference is 13 inches, both put him in the 90th percentile. I had always assumed that formula fed babies were larger but I actually learned today that I was way WRONG! Dr. G said he looks great and is perfectly healthy!

Wyatt wants everyone to know that he is recovering nicely!

Two Months!!

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

You are two months old today...WOW!! We love you more & more with each passing day.  You have brought so much joy and excitement to our lives...we must have been so boring before you!  We are loving your little personality that's starting to shine through.  We love you so much, Wyatt!

What you did this month:
  • You are still wearing size 1 diapers and are wearing size 3 months clothes.
  • I weighed you the other day and you are somewhere around 12 pounds!!
  • You're doing a great job with nursing.  You still eat every 2 hours during the day and now you're going about 6-7 hours at night.  Mama is a new woman!
  • You still sleep in our room at night in the Nap Nanny.  
  • Naps have become hit or miss.  You really just want to be held for naps...which is becoming challenging.  Some days you fight naps and will only take 30 minute naps here or there. 
  • You have been going to bed around 8 then wake up around 3 to eat.  At 8 you wake up to eat and play for about an hour, and then you take a short nap around 9.  You generally take some type of nap in the afternoons between 12:30 & 4. 
  • You've really become fond of your swing...as has Mama.  Sometimes it's the only place you'll nap, and I'll take it.
  • You love your play-time mat...especially in the mornings! You have started grabbing at the toys.  When you grab them, I always say, "YAY!!" and you smile and keep going. 
  • You have started fussing more during tummy time. But, you have started holding your head up and looking around!!  I keep trying to tell you it's worth it. ;)
  • You love bath time!! We started putting you in your bathtub and you love to kick (and pee!).
  • Since you love bath time so much, we put you in the pool for the first time this month.  You didn't mind at all!  I don't think you really knew what was happening.
  • You are such a content & easy going little guy!
  • You have found your thumb this month and try really hard to suck on it...when Mama's not looking.  I think I'm losing this battle.
  • You are still so alert.  You have really started to take things in.  
  • You enjoy your car seat and know what it means when you're in it...you're going somewhere.  We go somewhere almost everyday.
  • You know when Daddy or I are in the room & you start looking around for us.
  • You and Daddy had a few hours by yourself for the first time, while Mama went to be pampered.
  • You take your pacifier sometimes at night and at naps to help you get to sleep.
  • You love to meet new people and continue to impress everyone with your cuteness!

Our Weekend

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Our weekend started out wonderful!  Friday afternoon Sean came home from work and started on some chores outside.  So while he did that Wyatt and I went to Candi's to hang out with her and the kiddos.  Sean then came and got us and the three of us headed to the pool.  It's so nice to go to the pool in the late afternoon/evening because no one is there.  Since the sun had started to set and was behind the trees, we decided it would be a good idea to introduce Wyatt  to the pool.  We started with the kiddie pool this time because it's much warmer than the large pool.  He didn't seem to mind at all...in fact, he kind of looked at us like, "What's all the big fuss about?"  But he was adorable nonetheless...as usual.  

Saturday morning Sean went to work for a few hours and Wyatt and I just hung out.  When Sean got home I asked him to keep Wyatt so I could go have some Mama time.  I went and got a pedicure and stopped by a couple stores.  Oh, and of course, I had to go to Sonic for happy hour. :)
    I got home and Sean went out and did some chores.  When he came in he decided we needed to go to Home Depot.  So we went down to El Dorado for Wyatt's first trip to Home Depot.    
He was much more excited by the time we left. ;)

Sunday morning we hung out and relaxed.  Sean did some more work outside and Wyatt and I took a nap.  Here's our little stud muffin!   
Sunday afternoon we went over to the Adams house to hang out and grill.  I love watching Wyatt with the kiddos.  I can't wait to watch them grow up together as friends!

Wyatt's First Swim

Saturday, June 22, 2013

Yesterday was the first day of Summer, which meant Wyatt had to have some pool time!! There's a kiddie pool at the country club, which is warmer than the large pool, so we let him have some water time.  He loves bath time so I knew he would enjoy it! I'm already looking into a Mom & Tot class for us when he's 6 months...can't wait! I'm going to make him a water baby. :)

Uncle Cody

Thursday, June 20, 2013

My brother, Cody, came down Tuesday with my mom to meet Wyatt.  I was glad he was able to make some time with his busy work schedule.  (He works at Little Bread in Fayetteville & if you haven't been...GO!) It made my heart so happy to see him with Wyatt.  

(If you can't tell, his shirt says, "Cutest Nephew Ever!")

Sean's 1st Father's Day

Yesterday we celebrated Sean's first Father's Day. I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful husband, and father for our precious Wyatt.  Wyatt and I surprised him with a special card and a digital picture frame loaded with pictures for his desk at work.

  We spent the day hanging around the house.  Sean started the day by mowing and weed-eating.  I told him he didn't need to do that on Father's Day, but I think he secretly enjoys it.  We spent the afternoon watching movies (of his choice) and relaxing with our little guy.  I think he had a pretty great day.

Wyatt's Visitors

Monday, June 10, 2013

Since Wyatt's birth he has had several visitors come and see him.  We've had some out-of-town visitors and in-town visitors. We've appreciated everyone making an effort to come and see our little guy, and it's definitely worth the trip. ;)  I'm looking forward to taking him to Fayetteville to meet everyone else!

We had several visitors at the hospital.  Wyatt's Mimi and Pop came from Fayetteville on Thursday night and stayed through Sunday.  His Great Gramma came down from Van Buren with his Grandpa and Uncle Levi.  And Miss Christi (Mama's friend) came by on Saturday to visit.

Wyatt's Uncle Mark & Aunt Faith, along with cousins Mark & Abigail, came down for Memorial Day weekend.  We are so glad we were able to spend some time with them!

Wyatt's Aunt Jessica and Uncle Ryan came down all the way from Iowa! We were so happy to have them and Wyatt loved all of the extra attention.

Mimi and Pop have visited a few more times since Wyatt's birth.  We always love having them around...especially when there's a dirty diaper! :)

Wyatt's Grandpa (not fully decided on that name yet), Valorie, and Unlce Levi came down for a visit.  We had a great time and Wyatt visited a pool for the first time.
