3 Months

Yep I'm late on the 3 month update too, Calvin is a super good baby, we moved him into his own room this month :( I actually really like being around him a lot, but he was getting too big for his bassinet and I am getting a better nights sleep now that he's in his own room. We took him to the doctor this month because he's just spitting up a ton after every feeding, seriously like 1 to 2 oz every time! The Dr. said he has reflux so that's why he's been a bit more grumpy with feedings and everything when normally he's such a happy boy.  But the kid is still gaining a ton of weight, he weighed in at 14.8 lbs he's still in the 75% for weight. I must be producing half and half or something because that kid will spit up half of his meals and still gain weight. He is so much fun, he is laughing now and cooing up a storm.
Here Calvin is talking with Jesse:

He is usually a "happy cooer" but when I lay him on his back looking up at this little toy lion he starts yelling at it. It's hilarious, he furrows his eyebrows and seems super angry whenever he makes eye contact with it. I wonder what he's thinking...

He's a little stud muffin, almost every time we go out someone stops me to comment on how adorable he is. I feel lucky to be his mom.  One of the super funny things that happened this month was I was saying a prayer out loud on my breakfast one day and at the end of the prayer I said "amen" and right after that Calvin says "amen" - complete accident I'm sure, but it was super cute.
Here are a few pictures from throughout the 3rd month




This is my absolute favorite!

2 Months

Sooo awhile ago on August 16th Calvin turned 2 months old.... yeah I know I'm a slacker.  I LOVE this kid! He is so much fun to hang out with! Before we had Calvin I thought that I would NEED a break from being a stay at home mom, from being around my kid all the time, or just to get away from everything for a bit. But really I absolutely LOVE being at home with Calvin, I think he's hilarious with his funny face expressions and it is amazing how fast he is leaving things. He is just starting to be able to put his hands to his mouth (he usually just hits himself in the face, but he is trying). This month he had a huge growth spurt and he's huge! He's 13 lbs he is in the 75% for height and weight. He is a healthy boy. He smiles a ton and Jesse even got a little giggle out of him. He is still sleeping in a bassinet in our room and I love seeing him first thing in the morning and he gives me a HUGE smile, it melts my heart! So here are some of my very favorite pictures so far.





  Jesse's sister Mirinda is uber talented and she knitted Calvin a little tiger and a tiger hat to stick with the Calvin and Hobbes theme of which he was named.
