  • Camden's 5 Month Update + Welcome to the World, Cousin Parker Mitchell Yates!

    Weight: 17.5 lbs

    Length: 28.5 inches

    Diaper size: 3

    Clothing size: 6 - 9 months

    Health: Health is all good. Camden had his shots a couple of weeks ago and took them like a champ! He cried, of course but I think mommy and daddy cuddles soothed him back to being happy and giggly. 

    Sleep: He has been sleeping well for the most part. There was about a week where he would fuss like crazy when putting him down and would cry until one of us came in to hug him. Although there are no visible teeth poking through yet, I know his gums are bothering him. All the cuddles he wants and needs! 

    We are gearing up to start nap training him in his crib, again… should be fun.. 

    Last month, we started weaning him off of being swaddled by freeing one arm.  It did not bother him one bit. We took the other arm out and it took him a few nights to get used to it. Glad he grew out of the startle reflex phase!

    Diet: Diet is the same. Breastmilk, formula and diluted apple juice to help to poos. We let him play around with a soft cooked sweet potato. He loved mushing it around in his fingers. Cute to watch, not cute to clean. We are going to start baby-led weaning next month. I am super excited! BRING ON THE MESS, CAM!! Note to self- buy a splat matt! 

    Loves: When we sing Itsy Bitsy Spider, picnics in the park, apple juice, cheek kisses, bath time (WOW, right?!?), lavender lotion, people watching, Emily, getting his photo taken, music, tickles and his jumperoo.

    Dislikes: Well, we can no longer complain about Camden hating bath time! He absolutely LOVES it now! Thanks to a recommendation from a mom friend, we bought a different bath, that is more like a cushion. He just loves it. He kicks, splashes and giggles the whole time. What a difference! Still hates sitting still, the car and not being the center of attention. 

    Milestones: SOOOO much has changed in the last month. I swear this baby is turning into a proper little boy! He is working on sitting up and can do it on his own for a few minutes at a time before face-planting into the carpet. He is still using his arms between his legs to balance but I have a feeling he won’t be needed them for much longer. He also is just about ready to roll over from back to belly. He squirms and twists but hasn’t quite made it on his own yet. He has started to grab EVERYTHING!!!!!!! Especially table clothes with plates of hot food on them… no bueno! 

    Speech: He chit chats away all day long. He even started this high-pitched squeal that is quite ear piercing.

  • 36 Week Pregnancy Update Plus a Super Amazing Package from Lucy Darling!

    How far along? 36 weeks

    Total weight gain/measurements: Measuring perfectly on schedule. :) Can't be bothered with my weight at this point >.<

    Maternity clothes: Still living in simple stretchy non pregnancy clothes. With the exception of maternity pantaloons. 

    Stretch marks? Not yet! I have been using sweet almond oil twice a day.

    Sleep: I have def noticed a difference in my sleep quality this week. I pass out around 11pm, then at around 3 am wake up every 45 minutes to pee. Then for the rest of the night I feel restless and sweaty. So thats cute. 

    Best moment this week:  Bags packed! Ready to go! The nursery is also ready for baby C! Check out my previous blog post with a million photos of our lovely little baby cave! 

    Miss anything? I miss having an endless amount of energy… but I have a feeling I won't be getting that back. 

    Movement: Even though I know he is super squished in there, he is still moving around a ton and kicking my ribs :)

    Food cravings: FRUIT!!!!!!!!! And of course cakes! 

    Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing new. Still can't stand Old Bay or popcorn (barf!!)

    Gender: My Moy Boy <3 

    Symptoms: Something very unpleasant I have started notices besides my change in sleep, is lightning crotch. UMM HOLY OUCHIES! 

    Belly button in or out? FLAT and sometimes out when he's poking me! 

    Wedding rings on or off? OFF! These sausage fingers couldn't take it anymore! 

    Happy or moody most of the time: HAPPY! 

    Looking forward to: My Moy Boy to be here!!! Just a few more weeks! 

    We have baby registries at Target and Amazon! (for those of you who have asked)

    We received THE most adorable gift from Lucy Darling! Recently released "Baby's First Year" book which is in our hospital bag, monthly stickers and closet organizers so I can easily find outfits based on his age! SO brilliant! THANK YOU!!!!! <3

    Just like Daddy Docs! I am SO in love!
