Bad Blogger

Sorry. I have been a bad blogger this week since I went back to work. Thanks to all of those who were wondering how work went. It was not as bad as I was expecting. I miss Maxx terribly but I survived week #1!

Here are a few pictures for your enjoyment!

This is his "I'm thinking" face

Almost a smile captured!

2 Months Old!

Baby Maxx is 2 months old today!

Maxx did great at his two month check up. He weighs 10 lbs 12 oz and is 23 inches long. He gained over 2 lbs this month. The dr was very impressed. He also got 2 shots at this appt. It was very traumatic. He cried, I cried, and GranPat cried. We were a site.

Some of his second month highlights include:

  • Formula- Maxx is now on formula only and doing great.
  • Spitting up- Maxx is a spitter. He spits with almost every bottle. The dr was ok with it as long as he continues to gain weight.
  • Poop- We had major pooping issues when switching to formula. He had to have a suppository. We also have to put Karo syrup in some of his bottles to help him go.
  • Smiling and cooing- He smiles a lot and he talks all the time.

Here are his teddy bear pics. He wasn't cooperating again. Well, by not cooperating I mean he would not stop moving around. He is such a wiggle worm. His arms and legs don't stop moving!

On a very sad note, my maternity leave is over! I start back at work tomorrow (4/20). I am so very upset. Scott now becomes a stay at home dad 2 days a week. Gran Pat is going to stay with Maxx 2 days a week as well. (Thank you!) and I will have fridays since I am off of work. This is going to be a huge adjustment but I take comfort in knowing that Maxx won't be in daycare with strangers. He is staying with the 2 best people in the world that he could be with other than me. I just hope he remembers who I am. He is going to become such a daddy's boy!

Lunch with good friends!

On Wednesday, Maxx and I had lunch with GranPat, Ms. Patty, Rebecca, Dustin, and Baby Brock. Here is the background on our unique group. My mom and Ms. Patty are best friends. They work together and have been friends since the late 80's I think. Rebecca is Ms. Patty's daugther and her husband is Dustin. The Patty's (as they are called) can't do anything without each other. Well, of course, they couldn't become grandmothers alone either. Rebecca was due with Brock on 03/04 and I was due with Maxx on 03/06.

Well, as we all know, Baby Maxx arrived on 02/19 after my water broke. When I woke up on Saturday morning in the hospital, I found out that Rebecca's water broke early that morning and she was in L&D in labor! Baby Brock was born 16 hours after Maxx on 02/20. So you see, The Patty's really can't do anything without each other. Even their grandson's were able to plan it for them!!! Here are a few pics!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to everyone.

Maxx was not very fond of his my first Easter outfit, well the hat was the only bad part.

He got happier as the day went on.

We spent Easter Sunday with Scott's family and we spent Easter Saturday with my family.

Maxx had fun visiting with his cousins, Colin and Kellie.

Saturday evening we attended the annual Easter Egg Dying event at my sisters house. Here is a pic of Maxx with his Gran Pat.

Here is a picture of PawPaw Bill and his three grandsons: Brandon (9), Ryan (5), and Maxx (7 weeks.) I can't wait until Maxx is old enough to wrestle around with them!

Request for pictures

Well this morning Gran Pat and G Maw-Maw El both requested a new post with pictues! So here you go. Maxx and I went to Walmart this morning to get some groceries. Since we have thisz freak chilly weather in April, I took advantage of it to dress Maxx in a fleece outfit that he might not get to wear again. Oh and we had to have a hat too!

Lunch with some friends

Today Maxx and I had lunch with my co-worker, Roxanne, and her new little boy named Kaleb. Kaleb was due 10 days after Maxx and was actually born 11 days after Maxx was born. So both these little guys were early! It was a nice lunch. Kaleb slept and was very well behaved. Maxx, however, was awake and cranky. Look how cute these little guys are!

Who knows what Maxx was looking at in this picture.
