Look Who’s 7 Months Old

Cecito_7mo_4x4

Gosh, what to say, what to say? When you are so far behind that you can’t remember month to month anymore. I’m trying, really I am. Even making notes trying to recall what the baby did each month isn’t as grand a plan as I thought it would be.

So, lets start with the big one, he’s CRAWLING! Not just learning to crawl, full on crawling and climbing over everything he can get to. This happened the day he turned 7 months and then two weeks later he was showing off by pulling himself up on everything! The kid cannot go 5 minutes without falling and crying, but he doesn’t give up. Well, when he really hits his head he does. Just lays there screaming and I don’t blame him. The kid gets bumps and bruises every single day. Not usually just one, either. It freaks me out, but I have to remind myself that he’s a boy and that’s more than likely, just his nature. Get used to it, Momma!

As if that was enough of a heart attach for me, he then attempted trying to stand the same week he was pulling himself up. I’m not sure if he meant to or not, but he took his hand off the ottoman and immediately fell. This seemed to tick him off, so he cried…a loud shrieking sound. After about a week or so of that he’s no longer shrieking and he stays standing, for a beat, before he falls on his bum. There have been a few sideways or forward falls, see the above mentioned bumps and bruises. The bruises stink, but the rest of it is pretty cool.

He’s a mover and a shaker, folks!

This month he’s also proven to needing supplimenting *milkshakes*. I was a bit bummed and amazed, but I’m ok with it now. The kid takes down 4-7oz after he nurses, so obviously he needs it. I’ve also taken down the amount of solids he gets since I noticed he hadn’t any weight in almost a month.

Here are his stats:
Weight: 16 lbs 11.25 oz (weighed at Mother’s Circle a week after he turned)
Length: 31 inches (measured at home a few weeks ago)

Ok, now for pictures!

My Not So Happy Valentine

This year, it was my turn to make dinner. I had it all planned out; simple, yet extravagant (for us). It was going great, I had chosen to make fancy grilled cheese. You know so we didn’t have waste and didn’t double our grocery bill. The night before I prepared the pulled pork. After lunch I made the gouda mac-n-cheese. All that was left was to assemble, cook and steam the brussels sprouts. Easy.

Gil volunteered for dessert, since I made it last year. He went out on a limb with a brownie recipe that only had two ingredients. If you were wondering, they didn’t come out as expected. Poor guy, but he saved our sweet tooth cravings with cheesecake. Not just any cheesecake, slices from the same place that made our wedding ‘cheese cake cups’. Yay – fun!

We sat down to eat and it was amazing. The adults loved the food, L.L. ate brussels sprouts like they were candy and the baby took down sweet potatoes with oatmeal. We opened a bottle of red, since we were celebrating, and it seemed Valentine’s Day was ours, finally.

Then, bedtime for the baby (he goes down 6:30/7p.m.). I emerged from the kid’s room for Daddy to announce he was getting worse and felt really terrible. You see, L.L. had been sick for a few days, but we thought she was getting over it. Her mood was better, no more crying out in the middle of the night because her nose hurt and she was finally drinking the fluids she needed. So after putting her to bed Daddy took off to the drug store for sinus medicine. It had been building all day.

You would think that was the end of the night, but no…oh no, couldn’t be the end for our household. After that, L.L. went to the bathroom 4 times and it wasn’t pretty. Poor thing didn’t know what hit her. While Daddy’s sinus pressure kept building and he started to feel cold…awesome. He went to bed early barely touching his wine. We didn’t even discuss the cheesecake. I made up the couch for me to sleep on and then the night time saga began.

Cecito woke up about every 10-30 minutes from 8:30p.m. to 11ish. Then around 11:30p.m. Gil’s standing above me in a towel, holding L.L., also in a towel. Both of them wet. He sincerely apologized, then informed me I needed to take L.L. because she vomited all over the bed. They just took a shower to wash her vomit filled hair.

WHAT!?!?!?!?

So, we cuddled for a bit assessing how she felt. It was really sad and scary because she got sick while she was asleep on her back, so it was all in her mouth and he heard her making vomit noises and had to quickly turn her over to get it out. She was scared and Daddy was freaked out. Unlucky Daddy had to disassemble the bed and get it to the washer. Then, make one on the living room floor for her. I made sure I had everything she needed out there and we all went back to bed.

I have no idea what time that was, but I was finally woken up, for good at 5:15a.m. During that time I was woken up from…

* L.L. coughing and refusing water
* L.L. coughing and finally accepting water (her poor throat sounded like sandpaper as she swallowed)
* Domingo trying to get back in from the kid’s room (I was too tired to put it together)
* Domingo pawing at the door again, because I was too dumb to let him in the first time
* Cecito wanting to nurse TWO times
* Cecito doing random wake up…I lost count…
* Daddy getting up for warm compress
* Daddy changing over the laundry

To say the least, I was tired. But not as tired as Daddy and L.L. They slept most of the day away. Now, it’s 8p.m., the next day. I’m finishing the wine while writing this and everyone else is in bed.

Good news: Cecito’s top teeth started to poke through. This morning you could see the white of both and a corner of one. Maybe his sleep will improve!

Bad news: My nose is started to feel a bit stuffed and I’m sneezing – a lot. Boo!

Bummer news: The flowers Gil had delivered me were wrong and the rose sprays had droopy heads this morning (the next morning).

I shake my fist at you, Valentine’s Day.

Since I hate to end on a negative note, here are some pics. This was all before the beginning of the end happened. Our happy little family.

My masterpiece.

Officially At The End of My 30’s

Don't mind if I do! (Card from the hubs.)

Don’t mind if I do! (Card from the hubs.)

I am, officially, 39 – thirty-nine! Feels really strange to say it. Then I think, I am almost middle age  — what!?Almost over the hill. Almost in my 40’s! It makes me feel like I should be older or think older or act older or dress older, but I don’t. Honestly, I don’t even feel close to 40. Which is a something that I will go into another time. Of course, I have a lot to say about that, but right now I just want to talk about the wonderful week I had celebrating.

Normally, we go to the mountains for a snow weekend, but we weren’t able to do that this year, and it really bummed me out, but we did have guests in town. My in-laws were here for a visit! They are always a good time. While they are here we go out all the time; basically it feels like we are, also, on vacation. Plus, their birthday’s are the week before mine, so we are celebrating the whole time, it’s great!

However…I swear, I put on 5 pounds during this visit. It’s a good thing we don’t have a scale at home!

This year the extra fun part about my birthday was that a friend offered to put together a dinner. I didn’t have to do anything but choose the night, it was the best. No worrying about anything, I just had to show up! To my delight, an old friend came down for the night – all the way from LA! She made the rest of the evening just as easy. I didn’t have to decide on drinks or food…yummy things just appeared out of nowhere. I was in heaven. After dinner, we went to a newish bar that I had wanted to try out and we continued the fun.

It really was just what I needed and wanted to do. The one downer was that the baby woke up early, so I was exhausted the next day. Even though that’s not new, it meant that when Gil and I tried to go out for our first real date night since becoming parents we were extra tired and almost called it off. Of course, we couldn’t do that, so we rallied and went out for two beers. It was very nice to go out, just the two of us. And the grandparents got to babysit, for the first time. I would say it was a win-win!

Kicking the day off right!

The Boy’s Half Birthday

Late, late, late! Two days before the boy turns 7 months – eek! The one saving grace I have is, that I took pictures two days after he turned 6 months…so there’s that.

Let’s jump right into it. The kid is the cutest, dark brown eyes with dark lashes that go on for days. He looks a lot like me, but plenty like Daddy, too. He drives me bananas and melts my heart all in the same moment. Not to mention the baby giggles – the baby giggles – they are outstanding. He’s wasn’t quite crawling for the six month mark. However, he can still get around doing the worm. He sits up so quick and can get under a couch or chair in seconds. What he isn’t i, daring. Nor is he a “bounce right back” kinda baby. So, we have plenty of tears everyday.

The most amazing part of this kid, for his half birthday, is the amount that he eats. He can wolf down 4 ice cubes of food in about 5 minutes. If you don’t have that spoon moving towards his mouth he is shrieking like a dyeing cat. It can be ear piercing, too. He nurses all day (yep folks, we are still breastfeeding – yay!), gets two meals of solids and a bottle right before bed. Still wakes up once to nursing during the night. He should be giant, but he’s not. Still a regular babe, and we adore him.

I can’t stop kissing his cute baby cheeks. I do it so often that L.L. has started kissing us and her stuffed animals the same way I do him: lots of consecutive kisses on the cheek without moving your lips from the cheek. Makes me smile thinking about it, can you tell I’m smiling right now?

Here are the stats:
Weight: 16.75 oz. (21%)
Length: 26.5  (41%)
Head Circumference: for some reason only the ranking is on the form (68%)

All smiles

This is almost 'the lounge' he does it all of the time, only without his right leg kicked out.

Christmas! Christmas! Christmas!

This year our Christmas got much more fun. What ‘they’ say is true. Holidays with kids really is more fun! Even though L.L. didn’t completely understand what was happening it was loads of fun watching her so happy with the new gifts she got.

Everything was a gasp and wow in wonderment. It took us a while to get through all of the gifts, and truth be told; I opened a good number of them, but we all still had a great time.

We started off the day getting all of us up and at ‘em after sleeping in until 8 am, it was incredible! Probably had something to do with our awesome Christmas Eve at our friend’s house. Acting out the nativity scene and reading from The Bible, ginger bread house decorating, yummy dinner, even better dessert with lots of hide and seeking. It was so great that one kid fell asleep on the way home and the other went gently to bed right away. Merry Christmas Parents!

Gil decided to get up at 7:30 and couldn’t believe he was the only one. I don’t recall how well we all slept that night, so I’m sure it was our normal couple of wake ups. We had to wait for about 10 minutes until L.L. noticed all the new gifts in the living room, but once she did it was ON!

Eventually, we ate breakfast and everyone enjoyed the day. The one story that I’ll share from the day was L.L. insistence on ‘going to work’. She got a Frozen back pack and that lit a fire in her to get out the door. She repeated over and over and over, “I gotta go to work.” As we walked around the block with her sparkling backpack, blue Frozen outfit and 10 new barrettes in her hair. It was epic.

This Ain’t No Mom Haircut

I don’t know what it is, but I dread when someone thinks I have a “mom haircut.” I’ve only had someone say it once, but I was ready to come out of my skin with rage.

If you were unaware, while you are pregnant you stop shedding the hair on your head. It’s a hormone thing. Aren’t they all? Then, once you give birth you lose all those extra hormones, along with all that hair you held onto for 9ish months…and then some. It’s quite awful. Not to mention all the hair that is everywhere! Impossible to keep at bay.

To combat this phenomenon I have decided, twice, to chop off my hair.

If you know me well, that’s a pretty big deal. I rarely ever want the length to be anywhere near my shoulders, it’s usually half way down my back. Even though, secretly, I’ve always wanted to see what it would do with a pixie cut. Just never had the nerve to actually go through with it.

After L.L. was born I decided to go with a shag cut. This brought on the wretched, “mom cut” comment.

Really people, why does this bother me so much? It’s silly. And I’ll tell ya this, the more I think about it the more I think it’s like people not wanting to be called sir and ma’am. For those a generation ahead of me it’s that. For those, my age, it’s this. I view being called ma’am as respect and a mom cut as being old and giving up on your appearance. Others, from my experience, feel being called ma’am makes them older than they feel and a mom cut as being appropriate for a persons age, aka. grown up looking. It’s all about perspective, isn’t it?

This time I decided to go shorter. Eeeek! It’s a cross between a bob and a pixie. I couldn’t go all the way with a pixie. Maybe next time. It’s wonderful not to have long hairs all over the place and hand fulls while I wash my hair, in the shower, and then more when I brush it, out of the shower. Plus, it feels fuller and healthier. I must admit, it’s actually easier, too. My thoughts on short hair being harder because you have to style it everyday was because I didn’t go short enough.

It took me about a week and a half to truly love it. I was stuck between liking it short and feeling like I didn’t look pretty anymore. Well, I’m over it and feel that the cut is sassy, modern and just what I needed.

So folks, this ain’t no Mom Haircut, even though I am a Mom.

All the blonde is gone!

Just in case you were wondering, here is my hair stylist website. She’s not only the best I’ve ever been to, but a super cool lady, to boot! I’ve already had one person tell me the cut is “rad” and that I should keep it short. Then asked who I go to…see, she really is that good!

Starting to Crawl

In my last post I mentioned that crawling is almost upon us, with Cecito. Luckily I was able to finally get some photos of the little dude getting up on his hands and knees. He’s so ready to crawl, just not coordinated enough. Yet, but he’s very, very close. He does this weird scoot where he gets up and down on his knees and ends up moving all over the floor. His moves are mostly backwards and in circles, but man, can he get around!

Along with the drooling, you will see that in the pics, too. The little tyke has two teeth on the bottom of his gums. He’s growing so fast. So fast that I can finally understand why people say the baby phase doesn’t last long. Already, I think back to the screaming banshee times and get warm fuzzies.

Almost forgot, here’s L.L.’s crawling post. When I think about her post to this one they are, still, really similar. However, they aren’t crawling the same. She would faceplant because she didn’t understand to move her arms. While he doesn’t understand moving the arms either, he rolls to the side and tumbles over. Sometimes he hits a check, but usually bumps the back of his head once he’s already rolled over. Either way, they are both my adorable littles and I’m loving watching them grow up while I track them on this blog. Hope you are, too.

Look Who’s Five Months Old!

DSC_0943

Our Happy Little (Sweet) Heart

On Thanksgiving our little monster turned FIVE MONTHS OLD! It was quite a momentous occasion, since he also sprouted a tiny tooth on the bottom left of his jaw. We were so sure he had been teething since month two and it looks like we were right! Poor baby has been a little fussy over that one. As he should be, I hear pushing teeth through your gums is mighty painful.

So, five months…with this second child of ours I have to say that I feel the five months. I can’t believe it’s already been that long, when I stop to think about it, but who has time for that!? We are getting by much better, as our little sweetheart is sleeping easier (and L.L. stays in bed, for the most part, now). I have moments where I look at my family and think, ‘this is what it’s all about,’ and I smile with a warm heart. As hard as the days have been it’s wondrous watching our two kids grow.

Cecito is already in #3 diapers and 9 month footie pajamas. He can still get into 6 month onesies, but anything with a 3-6 month tag is iffy. In fact the onesie that I put on him for his 5 month pictures was a little snug with a 3-6 month tag. To try to give you a bit of a visual, L.L. wore this one particular pair of jeans until she was 18 months old and Cecito barely fits into them now! With this second baby I finally get why people say they grow up too fast. Soon I will be telling him to stop, just stop growing up so fast, Momma can’t take it!

Outside of all that he’s a lot of fun. Smiles all the time and he’s definitely not afraid to tell you he doesn’t like something. Plus, he’s a pretty big snuggle bug. If I could carry him all the time (especially without a carrier) he would be in heaven. He loves the jumper and can stay in it for 30 minutes, it’s amazing! However, I see that time frame getting shorter and shorter as the days go by. He’s started cooing as he wakes up in the morning. Not in the same way L.L. did, he has a different language, but it’s still cute. The only thing is his patience with being alone doesn’t last long, so we need to pick him up to join us faster than we did her. Not that we have slow and relaxing wake up’s anymore, but I was kinda holding out a little hope it would happen for a few weeks once he started sleeping better…oh well, more time with baby.

I’ve saved the best news for last, as I’m sure, you expected. This kid loves, I mean ADORES, his big sister! He watches her all the time and giggles constantly when she’s around. Especially if she pays attention to him, and the giggles never stop when she talks to him. It’s the GREATEST! She’s just started to get jealous of him, so this helps out, a lot. Now for the big one, our little man has started to learn to crawl! Can you believe it, the beginning stages of learning to crawl. The day before Thanksgiving he got up on his hands and knees and Daddy was there to see him! Since then I have snapped a few pics and will follow up with a post, just like I did for L.L. Plus, if you were wondering this is exactly the time that L.L. started to do the same thing. They are very much on the same physical path. Which doesn’t surprise me, they are similar in how alert and aware they are as infants. Here is a link to her 5 month post, if you wanted to check it out.

I love this little bundle so much and can’t even believe he’s only been around five months. For me, he makes our family feel complete. Warm fuzzies, people, warm fuzzies!

p.s. I measured him, with a ribbon and then took it to a ruler…so take this as you may, he’s now 25.5 inches long. No idea on the weight.

Double Fours!

We had a special birthday pass by us on the 14th…

Happy Birthday Daddy! It wasn’t one of the big ones, but we like to celebrate birthdays over here. Well, ok, I like to celebrate birthdays. I usually try to come up with something fun, but this year I was slacking. We have had one sickness after the other this month. It’s been brutal and I can’t seem to catch a break, I get them all, too.

So, we defaulted to a dinner out. Which is something we had yet to try, so we decided to wing it! Gil picked Blind Lady Ale House. He really enjoys it there, plus, it’s loud and they let you bring in kids. Score! We invited our neighbors to come along with us. They are a lot of fun and have a brand spankin’ new babe of their own. We were all on thin ice taking infants out to dinner.

Luckily it worked out. We all had a great time. Even L.L. had some salami pizza – this from a kid that doesn’t eat meat. Maybe we need to turn the lights down all the time so she doesn’t know what’s on her plate…hmmmm, now that’s an idea!

…and our Cecito turned 20 weeks! It was a big day for our family.

We hope you had a good birthday, Daddy! xoxoxo
