Baby dedication

This was my last Mother's Day with a new baby. 

So bittersweet. 

I didn't want it to be about me, I wanted it to be about my last baby. 

And the prayers we have prayed for his little heart, and his life. 

And the promise we made to raise him in a home filled with Jesus, teaching him to serve and love, as we all learn to serve each other as ourselves. 
He melts me y'all. 
Pure butter when I get this face. He is so spoiled he won't even cruise the furniture. Too many hands aroundto carry this baby.
This was the last time I would work with my mom to make a precious gown using both our passions out of her stash and my babies stash of fabric. 

I just tried to drink this time in. 

Sure the day was rushed, a little frazzling. But while she held him, I just drank it up. 

And while our pastor stood before our church, I just watched him, and prayed over him and drank it up. 

This baby y'all.. He is the one I didn't know I needed. 

Having 3 is busy, but I have settled into motherhood because of him and if the lord safely provided, I would easily have 1-2 more. 

If you don't mind me asking, after you read this post will you pray for this little one? 

Pray The Lord uses him in mighty ways, for his glory, pray The Lord protects him, keeps him healthy, keeps him humble and makes him wise. 

And in the words of a dear friend. 
"Makes this little acorn of mine into a giant and mighty oak."

(Will add another post from "the big camera" in the next few days!)

Thank you for your prayers friends.

7 Months

This was your month buddy.
Your personality exploded, you started pulling up, crawling and you cut your two bottom teeth all within 2 weeks!!

You are finally feeling better from having RSV, and several sinus infections.

We continued to have problems with your clogged tear duct so the dr referred us to a children's eye dr and she recommended surgery.

We are going to wait a bit longer to see if this is necessary.

you LOVE to snuggle in the pillows to drink your bottle!

You still wear size 2 diapers and sometimes a size 3, your growth has slowed down and you are still wearing 6-9 and some 9m clothing.

and your giggle. it melts us all!!! 

we love you angel!

W 4 Months Old

This big boy!!!
We havent had a chance to get to the dr but he gained some serious weight between 3-4 months! 
he went from 10 pounds to 13.5 pounds in no time.

We started making homemade baby food and so far he loves bananas, avocados, carrots and rice cereal. 

He eats every 3 hours on the nose almost,
still in size 2 diapers,
has started rolling from his back to his tummy and now loves tummy time.
His reflux is Much much better and we only have to give him medicine about 2-3 days a week.

He really started to smile and his personality has come to life.
This sweet baby loves to be talked to and is happy as can be as long as someone is holding him and talking to him!!
He has really started to reach for items and learning how to grab onto things grip them tightly. 
He is without a doubt 100% a momma's boy!!

3 month old

With each child it has seemingly taking me longer and longer to surface to normal and get in a good groove. 

I think with this sweet fella it has been right about 3 months. 

And an excess of coffee seems to be my fuel.

This sweet angel eats every 3 hours.

 He and c-bug have really started to interact a little more. 
Connor talks to him and Whit cooes to respond. 

He is by far the chubbiest of all my babies and I am loving squeezing on his chubby little legs. 

At his 3 month check up he was kicking all over the place.
Dr. said this was great and showed he would be advanced in his language. (will let you know on that one)
He weighed 12 pounds and his length was i think 24" so he has not grown much in length since birth. 
both weight and height are in the 25%.

We smile ALL the time and he loves to be talked to.
And he LOVES his bassinet. 
It's a safe place brother can't pick him up!

 As you can see we are on the move!!

Whit 3 Month Portraits

On the perfect fall afternoon we met our photographer at a new spot in town to get the perfect sunset pictures of our 3 month munchkin.

I will let the pictures speak for themselves. 

I love Jamie and how she is able to capture my babies so well.

Thank you sooo much Oh Snappy Day Photography!

W 3 months old

Some how I managed to forget to upload these pictures.
Thankfully I wrote down his stats at these times so I could go back and log them later.

He is nursing every 2 hours during the day and every hour and a half at night.

Still not sleeping through the night but we are working on different things to see what works, bath at night, fresh diaper before bed, another 2 oz topper before sleep, swaddling, some tylenol, reflux medicine and maalox, heating pad on his tummy, rubbing his tummy, nursing him to sleep, some gripe water... all of the above, some of the above, saying a few prayers..... 

At some point we collapsed and hoped the next night was better.

Still in size 2 diapers.

He loves any paci, any bottle and mommy.

He sleeps great in the swing during the day.

He looks SOOO different than the other two! 

We just can't wait to see who he ends up favoring.
