Check up time

Garrett had his 6th month check up on Monday. He was 16lbs 7oz. (Addy at a year 18lbs 8oz). He is 50th percent in weight and 65th percent in length. He is doing very well. Garrett started solids two weeks ago. We have made it through vegetable and half way through fruits. He is grabbing food from your hand if it is anywhere in his reach. He is my eater.

Addison had her 30 month check up at the same time. This is new this year to check their social development which we are not lacking in. She talks more than Brandt and I put together. The only concerning point to the appointment was that she is growing up but not out. She grew 2 and one half inchs and only 1 lb. The doctor started her on a appetite stimulate. Hopefully this will make my baby eat and gain weight.

Halloween 2010

She loved trick or treating. Addison would walk up to a front door say trick or treat, thank you and then all of a sudden she said let me grant you a wish. I love the things that come out of her mouth. She is just amazing and funny.

My little pumpkin and fairy princess! She is loving holidays with all the decorations. Christmas should and will be so much fun this year.

It has been to long.....

This is my little man all the time. He doesn't cry and he always has a smile on his face. He laughs out loud at his sister all day long. She is in love with him. They just love on each other. I am so blessed with great kids.

He started sitting up about a week after his 5 month birthday.

I love this picture. We went to the pumpkin patch in shorts and t shirts only in Georgia. I am sorry that I have not updated the site in such a long time. I am not sure where the time goes. I try to play with them every minute of the day so when they sleep I am going a mile a minute. We are looking forward to seeing all the family on Thanksgiving and then Christmas.
We were in DC about two weeks ago and got to meet Baby Morgan. She was adorable. I think that Garrett could of rolled over and smashed her, my little big man and little Morgan. We go for his 6 month check up next week. He was 16 lbs at the GI doctor this week, lets put this in relation to our world. Addy was 18 lbs at a year. He is huge to me but only 25-50% in weight and 90% in height.

Thought I was busy before!

My little buddy is growing up. He is almost 4 months. You think that you are busy with one child then you have another baby. You realize that you were not busy at all.
Garrett is so happy during the day. He smiles all day long.

He is still not sleeping through the night but we still love him. He is just getting up one time but mommy and daddy are tired. If anyone wants to let Garrett know this, please feel free.

8 weeks

Garrett has improved so much in the past couple of weeks. He is pretty much sleeping through the night. He has really started to smile this week. He is getting much more interactive.

Lindsey, Matt and Alex came to Ben's Shower over the weekend. Alex and Addy were so sweet together.

Garrett has turned into a much happier baby! The smiling is making mommy a much happier mommy also. It is much more rewarding a smiling baby instead of a screaming baby.

My little rock star!!! I could not ask for a happier easy going child. She has been great with Garrett. She still tells him she loves him and he is her "friend". I thought the newest of the baby would wear off by now and she might decide she doesn't like him but not yet. Thank God!!

Professional Photos

We had a photographer come to the house and get newborn pictures of Garrett and 2 year old pictures of Addison. The pictures turned out great. Garrett is almost 6 weeks now. I think that his reflux is getting better. We started a new medicine last week and we are increasing the dose again today. Addison is still loving her little brother.

We took Addison to the pool on Saturday and Sunday. She loved every minute of it. She was not scared at all. She was going underwater and wanting to jump off the diving board. She has no fear. She was kicking and screaming when we left the pool both days after being there for 2 and a half hours.

I am adjusting slowly but surely to being a mother of two. It is more difficult than I thought. I think that more of it is more guilt of not being able to play with Addison as much.
