1, 2, 3, 4 Months Old!

So to try once again to sum up the last four months, here we go! Wyatt is growing up so fast and he is such a BIG boy compared to his older brother when he was this age. One thing about Wyatt is he loves to eat! He loves to nurse and it seems like all the time. He loves to swing and he loves sleep in his mommy's arms too. He is a good baby. Of course he cries and we can't always figure out what he wants, but he eventually settles down by nursing or laying on my knees, tummy side down while we pat his back. Collier loves his baby brother, and poor Wyatt can't seem to get a moment alone. Collier is always giving him kisses and loving on him. I know he can't wait for his baby to be able to play with him.

One Month Old.
I don't have stats for the first month. They see the pediatrician at 2 days old, 2 weeks old, and 2 months old. Wyatt was born 8lb, 11oz and by the time we left the hospital he was down to 8lb, 1oz. At his 2 day visit he had gained back the weight lost, and at his 2 week appointment he was 9lb, 1.5oz and 21 inches long. He was in the 75% for children his age. Like I said, he loves to nurse and eat!

So tiny. Sweet Baby.

Collier has to have his picture made too!

2 months old.
Wyatt was not happy about this photo op. I should have tried again later when he was in a better mood, but I was determined to get these done at this particular time. Probably because we were on our way to the pediatrician. This month we weighed in at 14lbs, 14oz and were 23 1/2 inches long. He was in the 95% for kids his age! He did really well with his first shots too. He only cried a few seconds after he realized something sharp had poked him. But he quickly settled down. Lots of fat on those legs, so I am thinking it didn't hurt as much. No picture of the Dr. visit. I went by myself and forgot the camera.

And Wyatt is developing more of a personality. He is way more dramatic than Collier. He is pretty laid back, but when he gets upset watch out. He definitely has his own richter scale with his voice! He still loves to swing. He spends lots of time in there and he continues to sleep with me at night. He is not a fan of the pacifier and he loves to pacify himself by nursing. But at this point, we need sleep to deal with the craziness of these two boys. Whatever works!

Collier doesn't miss his picture with Wyatt too. I have started to try and dress them alike. Hence the shorts that look like I am cutting off the circulation to Wy's belly! Wyatt is quickly going up in clothes sizes and I can't keep up. We are in 3-6 months at 2 months old.

3 months old.
And the rolls are numerous! I love this chunky monkey. When he turned 3 months we were in Colorado visiting my mom. We really put him to the test with a two day trip in the car. Another thing about Wyatt, he is not a big fan of the car seat. I spent most of my time in the backseat between the two boys to keep Wyatt settled down. He is starting to smile and laugh. He is getting interested in his hands and starting to chew on them.

Collier getting his turn now. He likes to hold Wyatt in his lap, but he doesn't do a very good job of holding him! And Wyatt is or almost looks bigger than his brother.

4 months old.
So we haven't had our 4 month well check yet. But I did have to take Wyatt into the pediatrician for an issue with thrush and he weighed in at 18lbs, 8oz. He is in 6-12 months in clothes. Wyatt please stop growing so fast! He is smiling more and laughing hysterically. Loves his hands and holding and chewing on toys that are swinging in front of him. He like to jump in the jumperoo, lay on his play mat and play, not a huge fan of the bumpo, and he still likes to swing. He rolls from side to side and will soon be rolling over. Lately he likes to grab his feet/toes. He loves the bath. He is mimicking our facial expressions and loves to have Collier smother him with his love!

He still is dramatic and has lots of facial expressions. I think he gets that from me. When he is happy he is happy, when he is upset, I sure do know about it quick!

And Collier was too busy to take his picture today. I think he was throwing toys into the crib. And that is the new thing we are working on-we moved Collier to a big boy bed in another room and Wyatt to the crib in the nursery. We have had to be tough and do some sleep training, but after a week, Wyatt is putting himself to sleep. He still wakes up a couple of times to nurse, but he doing well and sleeping better at night. Me too!

I love my two little boys so much! They bring such joy to my heart each and everyday. Collier is so sweet and talking so much. I can't believe he is almost two. He loves his Wyatt too and can't wait for Wyatt to be able to play with him!

First Week at Home.

Wyatt had an eventful first week at home. My Mom, Granna J, was in town to help out, along with Auntie MerMer, and my grandmother, Mimi, flew in to see all her grand babies. Wyatt came home from the hospital with a little bit of jaundice, so he had to spend a little time in the natural sun light. We also had his first set of newborn pictures taken and his first bath. More about that later! We had a lot of visitors and Wyatt received a whole lot of lovin'. Here are a few pictures of the weeks events!

Letting us know that the sun is a little bright!

A little more comfortable now.

Meeting Auntie MerMer for the first time. Mary Jane is one of my Kappa sisters and besties. I don't have a real sister, but she is the closest thing to having one. Collier doesn't know that. I am sure that he will grow up thinking she is my real sister and never think twice about it! She wasn't able to be there for the birth, because she is a pilot and was at work when Wyatt was born. We were pretty upset about that. She came over as soon as she got home!

Sweet Mimi! Wyatt hasn't met Granddad yet, because he was too sick to make the trip. We were so happy that Mimi got to come and help us out!

One thing about Mimi: she loves to give babies their bath. So we let her give Wyatt his first one at home! She does a much better job than we could. They don't even cry very much. Collier had many baths done with great, loving care by Mimi when he was very little!

Not too bad thus far.

Getting a little cold!

One week old!

Love this little guy.

Brotherly Love

Several people ask me all the time, "How is Collier handling the new baby?" Well to answer your question, he loves his new baby brother! He loves him so much that he sometimes smothers him with his love. And yes, he has gotten frustrated with all the attention that is paid to Wyatt. He has learned to hit and sometimes, his loves pats turn to whacks. Poor Wyatt is getting smothered with kisses or hit on the head by his big brother! It is a good thing that Wyatt is already looking like he can take Collier in the weight department, because Collier might get paid back someday! Here is a glimpse of Collier loving on his baby brother from the hospital until now.

Checking out his new baby.

Not too sure what to think of Wyatt.

Just checking on Wyatt to see if he is ok!

One thing he really enjoys is holding his little brother!

Giving Wyatt kisses.

Showing lots of emotion with his loving!

Besides loving on Wyatt, Collier loves his new basketball too!

Sweet Boys!

Happy Birthday Wyatt!

After 40 long weeks of waiting for our second little boy to arrive, we finally decided to induce labor on Friday, April 8th, 2011. I had tried to wait as long as I could for Wyatt to come into the world naturally. I gave him up until his due date! The next day we went into the hospital around eight o'clock in the morning for the scheduled induction. After several intense hours on pitocin, I asked for the epidural, and shortly thereafter we were ready to push this baby out! We had to wait for our sweet doctor to finish a surgery, and around six thirty in the evening, I was able to start pushing. Wyatt arrived at 7:27 pm!

It was so fun and exciting to finally meet this little man. The first thing I said, "He is so big!" And he weighed in at a whopping 8lb, 11oz!! He has the chubbiest little cheeks, so I know for sure he belongs to me!! Collier was not too sure what to think of the bebe. But by the time we left the hospital, he was ready to play the role of big brother! Life is going to be a little crazy, but there is plenty of love to go around. I am so blessed to have another little healthy baby boy in the family. There is no where else I would rather be than raising two little boys with my loving husband. So very BLESSED!!!

Getting ready to go to the hospital.

A little Monkey!

So I am desperately trying to get the blog back on track! I am playing catch up. So my next couple of posts will be a fast track on what has happened to end 2010 and the start of 2011!

For Halloween, Collier was a little monkey! I tried to swing a cowboy costume, but he ended up tearing my paper vest. So I ran up to the resale shop and bought this costume in a hurry! I got a great deal, and he was pretty darn cute in it! And it was appropriate, since he is learning to be a little climber!

Say Cheese!

Am I cute or what?! He didn't even mind wearing the hat on his head.
