Spring 2011

Ahhhh....Spring time in beautiful East Texas! The temperatures are in the mid 70's, the morning air is crisp and refreshing, skies are clear and blue, and my favorite part, all the beautiful flowers that are now in bloom. Here are a few of my favorites that I see each day on the drive to my office and from around town

2 Months Old

Colt turned 2 months old on March 14th! Here are the stats:

Weight: 16.2 lbs (99 %ile)
Height:25 1/2 inches (99 %ile)
Sleep: The longest he has slept at one time is 5 hours, but in a typical night goes to bed around 10pm, wakes around 1am, 4am, and 7am. Fortunately, he nurses and goes right back to sleep.
Eating: typically nurses every 2 hours during the day and every 4 hours at night.

He has started smiling and cooing a lot more lately. It's so precious to watch. He enjoys a warm bath and likes for me to massage his legs and arms with lotion aftwards. He's focusing better and moves his head from side to side to follow us. He's even noticed kitty echo walking by a few times. He's holding his head more steady and can grasp his hands and fingers much tighter. He used to not like his carseat at all, but now will tolerate it as we go from one place to another in the car or truck. He also began sleeping in his own bed last week. He began daycare last week. He goes 1/2 days 3 days a week. I always prayed that if God ever blessed us with another baby I would get to spend more time with it, because with Dallas I began working full time when he was 2 1/2 months old. We took him to daycare @ 7am and picked him up about 5 30 M-F. It was torture for me! Well, God answered my prayers with Colt. Since I have my own practice I get to set my office hours. He goes to daycare Mon, Wed, and Thurs. Tues and Friday we get to spend together, and I'm so thankful for that time.

Dallas and Colt. That's the best I could get with both of them this time. I'll try to get a picture of them together each month to see how much each of them change.

Don't you just love this one? I call him my ice cream cone 'cause he's such a treat. I've started to call Dallas cheesecake 'cause he's so sweet :)

Here's Colt in his crib for the first night. His outfit says,"Pinch me, I'm cute." I try to every chance I get!
