13 months

This little one has been ON the MOVE! 

He took his first ever steps while at the beach and has slowly built his confidence from there. My sisters wedding he was days shy of 13 months and taking 3-6 steps at a time! 

He decided to just get up Monday after the wedding and take off!!

He started saying "day" and uh oh this month as well as 

He loves helping wash the car! 

And had a BLAST at the lake!

He is all about the lotion and combing hair after baths! 
And loves doing anything big brother is doing! 

Still 21 pounds, 12m and 18m clothes, with very short legs! Haha

Size 3 diapers

And loves eating everything we do and his "unga" aka milk.

Fall recap

I feel like this past fall was a blur!! 

We were busy figuring out how to handle reflux, and sleep through the night, and transition c to the toddler bed! 

Lots of sleepless nights and a hair overwhelmed by everything that kept breaking on this house.

We made it through and all that sleep deprivation has me remembering just the highlights! 

This was w's first bite of cereal in the middle of October! 

He was pretty excited about it! 
I think this picture explains a lot about this child.
This little bean loved baths and brother and sissy thought this sleeper was hilarious! 
(Same night... Promise!)
We finally started smiling and finding out how fun playtime was!!! 
Baby started sitting in the big seat and this is how I got stuff done. Have them snacks and toys and ran to do dishes and laundry!

This one kept giving himself swirlies in the toilet and giving sisters poor barbie a swirlies as well! 

As you can see there wasn't much time to decorate this fall.... Lots of diapers, sleepless nights and going back and forth to preschool! 

I miss my little tiny baby. I hate I was in such a rush to get to the point of sleeping. Yes I love my sleep but I can't get those days back. They are gone.

9 Months

We both feel this way about him continuing to grow up! 
(Actually He had an ear infection)

Ohhh these two. 

Try keep me busy, and tired, and my heart so full! 

9 months was the month I hit my "I don't have a baby anymore panic attack."

I am learning to slowly release my grip, let him explore and accept he is the last baby for our family. 

If you don't know my extreme love of tiny babies, ohhhh my word it's intense. 

Like we have discussed fostering babies I love them so dearly. 

I don't like waking up in the middle of the night but the rest. I love it. 

These toes!

This angel fell asleep holding my hand.

He truly melts my heart!
Clearly he didn't feel too well.

Our hair is growing and starting to curl!!!! 
Eeeekkkkkk these curls are heavenly!!!!

Here is a glimpse of his 9month portraits.

He is quite the ham in front of the camera.
Oh how I love him so!!! 

9month stats:
He gained one pound and was up to 18.5. Pounds, 50 percentile! 
Length about the same at 28"

His growing seems to have leveled off and this planner momma is a little nervous that everything I have planned for summer isn't going to work. 

What do you do!

8 Months

This month this little pickle was busy busy busy!!! His crawling got faster and he was doing everything he could to keep up with big sister and big brother!!
Unfortunately he still isn't sleeping fully through the night, but majority of that has been from cutting teeth, congestion, and an ear infection that lasted for a month. No fun. 

He has discovered he is funny and smiles, then after the smile story's and wrinkles his nose. Sooo funny!!!

And as you can see, Clearly this month was all about the sticker!!!

He has been my baby that one day he is all baby and the next doing 3 new things! 

This month he really started to eat food more regularly, loved having oatmeal for breakfast, and even got to taste a donut! 
His face totally says it all!!

His stats this month: 
He lost weight being sick and has dropped to 17.5 pounds. So around 40%

He is still short and in the 30% percent for length at 27.5".

He moved from a size 2 diaper up to a size 3

And transitioned from the rest of the homemade baby food we made to joining us in eating what we eat at dinner!

A Baby Shower

A dear friend of mine is expecting so several people got together to throw her a shower for baby! 

We used my stork from whit as our door decor!
The first of the gifts! 
Everything was so yummy!! 

I had sooo much fun making this banner as decor for the party!! 

And it was so fun to see all things girly. We have been snips and snails over here for a while now! 

Now I am ready to meet this little one!

Favorite Baby Items #3

Now that we are on number three I feel like we have a little bit of an idea of what has worked well for us and what hasn't.

We did decide to start making our own baby food with #3 and suprisingly its easy, and super fun! 
The big kids have had a blast helping us make sweet potatoes, or apples and pears.

Its been a great teaching opportunity for the older two to learn how mixing things taste!


Our favorites this go is still our double to triple, back to single stroller.

 Throwback to our disney trip!

ride in the back, ride in the front
 pop an infant carrier in the top!
add a wheelie board and stick sister helping me push! 

This thing is amazing! 
btw... at three we finally had an AH HAH moment at the hospital. 
Dont take all those carts etc down, just grab the stroller, have the carrier attached and mommy can hold baby, and not baby in carrier. A lot less awkward and everything carried down in one trip!

The other thing we are using daily and SOOO glad we invested in with big brother is our Baby Bjorn bouncer seat! 

I actually dont have any pictures of w in the seat but trust me. he sits there often while I am working!
and... pretty much everything on this chart I made with c.

We did get a sophie replacement and this go... I would like to invest in a chew beads necklace. Mr. Whit can not seem to stop chewing on all my jewelry!

What do you use that you can't live without?

I never jumped on the rocknplay wagon but I hear I sorely missed out!
