  • Camden's 2 Month Update

    2 Months 

    Weight: 11.2lbs

    Length: 23.4

    Diaper size: 1

    Clothing size: 0-3

    Health: Still gaining weight wonderfully. Camden caught a little cold so we have had the pleasure of breaking in the nose frida… so that was fun. Still a gassy little man but we have introduced gripe water and it makes a huge difference! 

    Sleep: Camden sleeps through the night. I have learned to never wake a sleeping baby so I don’t. He lets me know when he is hungry or needs a cuddle or diaper change. 

    Diet: Breastfeeding is not easy. In fact, its probably one of the hardest things to do. With Camden’s demands and my supply I simply cannot keep up so we started supplementing with formula. He gets all the nutrients he needs to grow. We will monitor his weight gain and reactions to his new diet and adjust accordingly. 

    Loves: Still obsessed with ceiling fans, his toys (friends) and smiling at mommy and daddy.

    Dislikes: Baths, tummy time, jazz music, sitting still. 

    Milestones: Camden started smiling! Its the cutest thing ever! He is getting so much better at holding his head up. 

    Speech: Just slurping and snorting.

  • DIY Burp Cloths

    I came across a super adorable tutorial on Pinterest for DIY burp cloths or spit up rags. I just HAD to make my own! I searched for a lovely fabric made of organic cotton on Etsy and came across these two patterns that Ioved! Initially I had gotten minky cloth to use as well but when I began to work with it, I HATED IT and I did not see it being all that absorbent so I went with a simple soft terry cloth.  

    You will need:

    1 yard of terry cloth (prewashed)

    1 yard of patterned fabric (prewashed)

    Thread to match

    Step One: Cut a rectangle 10x18" out of both the terry cloth and the patterned fabric. 

    Step Two: Sew the two rectangles together, right-sides together, with a 1/2" seam, leaving a 1" opening in the middle of one of the edges.

    Step Three: Flip the burp rag right-side out, and topstitch all the way around, including on the opening to close it.

    THE END ALL DONE!

  • 33 -35 Week Pregnancy Update Plus A Few Treats for Baby C!

    How far along? 35 weeks

    Total weight gain/measurements: We are just going to leave this one alone for now… lol Lets just say, I have put on some water weight and screamed WHOA when I stepped on the scale at my last appointment. -_-

    Maternity clothes: I live in 3 outfits, sweatpants and one pair of busted Toms. I can't fit into much else and I would rather spend money on baby stuff than clothes for myself so whatever. 

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

    Sleep: Its not horrible but its not great either. I will have random nights of blissful sleep and other nights of hell. BUT that is to be expected. Its so hard to turn over! I literally have to use my hands to fling my legs over, otherwise they feel so heavy and hurt so much, turning over is just impossible. 

    Best moment this week:  We had our baby shower this past weekend and it was AMAZING! So lovely, so fun and we are SOOOOO grateful to our friends and family who spent the day with us! I will post a whole separate blog post with TONNNNNSSSS of photos! It was like Pinterest threw up all over my house! It was perfect! 

    Miss anything? I really miss being comfortable and not being in pain. It will all be worth it, I know. 

    Movement: Still a ninja even though space is super limited in there! 

    Food cravings: Water, ice, oysters, salads, anything sweet. 

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

    Gender: My Moy Boy <3 

    Symptoms: I have noticed that my body is starting to retain A LOT of water. My feet and ankles get super swollen! They look like subway sammich loaves according to Phil. (humph) I have also noticed my face filling out quite a bit, which I don't love...

    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: More nesting with Phil! Photographing the nursery! AND OF COURSE MEETING OUR BABY BOY!!!! 

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