Valentine's Day, 2 month check up, and such...

I hope everyone had a great LOVE day! Cory and I had a pretty relaxing nice V-Day. We woke up and made breakfast for my mom and little brother. My pink, {heart} shaped pancakes were HIGHLY impressive. Ok not so much, but I tried. Some were pretty good and then I got tired of it and did regular cute pancakes... and this is what I did with the plates :)

I can't wait till Hayden is older and can appreciate and have so much fun with my creativeness...

We all just chilled and hung out with Hayden the rest of the day and had yummy pizza. It’s so nice just to be with my little family and know that we are forever.
(And Cory got me an hour long massage for Valentine’s Day! I am so excited, I need it desperately!)

Hayden also had his 2 month check up last week. He was only 6 weeks, but I had to get him in for a checkup for other things....

Hayden....
weighs: 12 lbs 4 oz
length: 22.25 inches
head circumference: 40 inches

He is getting so so big! He is obviously way ahead in his weight. He was in 85th-90th percentile. I love his little chubby cheeks so much and his little dimply fingers and rolling thighs. He eats so much. At least once a day, usually at night he will eat 6 oz! The rest of the day its 4 oz every 2-3 hours. He eats so much, I can't believe it; I have had a hard time keeping up with him. Luckily he has no problem taking a bottle or formula. His pediatrician says he is healthy and looking great. Such a relief! I worry so much about him. He also got his 2 month shots this check up. Poor kid. 2 shots in one leg and one in the other. They did them all at the same time. He jumped pretty good I think it scared him as much as the little pinch hurt. He took lots of warm baths that day and was a little fussier but the next day he was great. He is such a good boy.

Hayden is FINALLY sleeping more than 2 or 3 hours a night. He has been sleeping at least one solid chunk of 5 hours a night. And only wakes up two times. Once late at night and then early in the morning. Then he starts his day around 7 or 8. I feel like a new woman with 5 hours of consistent sleep. But ever since he has been sleeping in his own room in his crib, I wake up FRANTIC almost every night. Because I have dreamed that we have fallen asleep with Hayden and he is in the bed with us still. In my sleepy deliriousness I always look under my pillow for him and then the floor and in our sheets. I’m in a panic that he is lost or smashed somewhere. Cory has to calm me down almost every night and remind me he is safe in his crib and then I pass right back out... weird huh? Hopefully that stops sooner than later.

so sleepy!

His eyes are getting so blue and he has the longest eyelashes!!


I love this picture, he is such a happy boy and smiles all the time at me know.




Hayden is being blessed March 1st. I am so excited for his special day. All of Cory's brothers are coming and will be together for a few days. It will be so nice to be together and celebrate how special Hayden is and how much we love him with all of our families. And since all of my bottoms,(skirts, pants, everything) have elastic in them still.... I went shopping for a new outfit for his blessing. I also attempted jean shopping. Holy smokes, that was interesting and unsuccessful and depressing. Low rise and certainly ultra low rise are NEVER happening again... 'nuf said...

I can't believe it's almost March, and Spring Time at that! I am so excited for spring...I am so over all this cold, yucky, slushy, snow....

What a cute idea for Valentine's Day. I'm sure your Mom loved it. Your baby boy is growing up so fast. He's so adorable. Your right he is stinking cute with the hat on.

Where are you getting your massage done at? I love getting those done, I'm jealous!! Hayden so cute, I was looking at your blog and my husband looked at his picture and was " that is a cute kid." I'm glade you are getting sleep. I can't even think of having a kid right now, so your stronger then I am.

Hayden is so adorable!! And I totally know what you mean about waking up frantically searching for him in the sheets. One night I caught myself looking for our baby Jack, and thought that the pillow case was a blanket on top of him. I got the pillow case halfway off the pillow before I relaized I was going insane!! haha

Hi there, We have never met, but I am Cory's cousin Missie, and I have been following your blog for a while. You have such a beautiful, happy little family. Tell Cory I said Hi.

It must be a mother's thing about waking up frantic trying to find your baby cause I did that too! I love reading about little Hayden. It's fun to see how similar him and my little guy are...he's a big boy!! He's just so stinkin' cute!

Megan he is seriously so cute! I can't believe how chubby he is! His weight is catching up to Sophie's! Funny. Yeah clothes shopping has not been the same since she was born, nor do I think it will be. Good-bye to the days of loving to shop for ourselves. Its too depressing, lets just buy cute little baby clothes and FORGET IT! :)

J&E said...

I do the same "oh my gosh did we leave her in the bed with us?!?!?" check, so you aren't crazy.... or we both are - probably more likely huh lol. Hayden is definitely a keeper, he's so cute in that hat! Glad all is well. Hope the blessing goes well, Jane is being blessed the same day. Love you!
