Cave women

Is this what cave women felt like?

This seems to be the only way I can get things done around the house when I don't have any help. Maxx loves to be in the sling. He just falls asleep. But he wakes up crying as soon as I take him out to put him in his bed or swing. I just have to adjust a little bit to make sure he doesn't hit anything. It has been working well so far. Here he is all safe and comfy.

Here are some cute pics from the last few days. We went shopping with Great Maw-Maw El on Friday.

Nanny Rach and Uncle Will visited on Sunday. We went to Hanson's to get snowballs...YUM. Maxx and Will had a photo session.

Aren't they hilarious? I love how they both managed to have the same expression in each picture!!!!! :)

Cute outfit!

I just had to take a picture of Maxx in his Restoration Hardware outfit. I love it. It was supposed to be his coming home outfit from the hospital but it was too big. He now fits into it.

Check out how long he looks in this picture. He is in the 95th percentile for his length. He is going to be tall!

I also finally put him in his swaddleme today. It was great. He put himself to sleep with no binkie for almost 5 hours!! He looked so funny all wrapped up. I am hoping this will help him to sleep in his bassinet. (which is still an issue as of now!)

1 Month Old!

Maxx is one month old!!! (well, actually yesterday...i am one day late with this post)

Maxx did great at his one month check up. He weighs 8 lbs 2 oz and is 22 1/4 inches long. Everything else checked out wonderful.
Some of his first month highlights include:
  • Crying---he has become very fussy lately. I call him my cranky monster. Hopefully this is just a phase.

  • Passing Gas- oh my, he is worse than a grown man! They are loud and stinky. We just laugh at him.

  • Pacifier- He has developed an obsession with a pacifier! Sometimes it is the only way I can keep him happy. He has also found his thumb. I will find him sucking on it when he losses his pacifier.

  • Shopping- He is a great shopper. Gran Pat and I have started taking him to run the streets and he is an angel. He sleeps in his car seat for hours while we get things done!

I tried to get his teddy bear comparison picture three seperate times but he wouldn't cooperate.

The last one is the best, I guess.
Maxx's umbilical cord finally feel off this week. YAY! So he was able to get a bath. I will upload the video of that soon.
Not that anyone is concerned with me anymore, but, I went to the dr yesterday and got a clean bill of health. YES. And I can exercise again...yes...Jazzercise here I come!

3 weeks

Maxx is 3 weeks old today. Can you believe it???

We had newborn pictures with Tiffany at Blink Photography today. (The same photographer who did our maternity pics.) Maxx was not happy at the begining of the session. He was hungry and wouldn't stop eating or crying. Tiffany's next appt arrived and she took them while I tried to calm my little man down. He was a lot better once we got started again. We didn't get to use all the props and items I wanted but I think we got some adorable pictures anyways. We did lots of naked baby shots. Maxx decided to potty on his dad, Tiffany, the floor, and a nice covered bench that he was laying on. My boy loves to pee!!! I can't wait to see the proofs from his session. I am sure we will be spending a fortune on pictures.

Maxx also made his first trip to Sake Cafe for lunch today. He was sleeping and therefore very well behaved. I got to enjoy some raw tuna for the first time in over 9 months so I was in heaven.

I decided to take some pictures of Maxx once we got home. He was in an adorable outfit so I wanted to get some shots for Gran Pat and Great Maw-Maw El. They love this outfit.

And I took some picture of me and my guy. Y'all know I love to take those hand out pics!

2 week check up

Maxx had his 2 week check up today. (one day early but close enough)

It was a good appt. He now weighs 7lbs 9 oz which is great. He is up 10 oz from his 5 day check up. He is almost back up to his birth weight. He has grown an inch and is 21 inches long. His head has also grown but I didn't get an exact measurement on that. Maxx still has a little jaundice in his face and upper chest but the doc wasn't too concerned. The doc said that breastfeed babies take a little longer for the jaundice to go away. All of Maxx's reflexes checked out great. The doc said that Maxx has some strength to him. Maxx's circumcision has healed nicely. We are still waiting for his cord to fall off. Hopefully that will be soon. And on a good note, Maxx didn't pee all over the scale, himself, or the wall today!!

Here is my little guy all dressed up in his carrier on the way to the doc.
