Happy 2nd Birthday B and 3 months update

Sorry it's been so long--I don't even know if anyone out there is still reading this blog. But Happy New Year to all and I hope everyone had a good holiday season.

Happy Birthday B!!! B turned 2 this past Saturday-Jan. 3!!!! I can't believe that this little 5 lbs 15 oz baby 2 years ago is now 2 and is talking and ruling our house! He now weighs 27.1 lbs and 34 3/4 inches! That little peanut is now a big boy!! It is amazing how much he has grown and we are enjoying reliving childhood all over again with him. He learned how to say Merry Christmas by saying "merry crissy!" or "sassa" for santa or "happy new ear" for Happy New year! He is talking 2 word sentences now, which is just amazing. It was hard to imagine this when just last year at this time he can't even say "mama". He is obsessed about writing and pens. He loves to color/scribble and this will keep him entertained for at least an hour. Another obsession is the vacuum cleaner. Due to this obsession, my parents gave him a vacuum cleaner for Christmas and it was a hit!! He plays with that thing for hours!!! And when we take out the real vacuum he loves to mimic us! Oh and the mimicking!! We really need to watch what we say around him now since he loves to repeat what we say. It is hilarious and scary at the same time. The last couple of weeks he started talking about his teachers and school so I think he is getting the "school thing" and he is enjoying it a lot! He remembers all his classmates and what they did in school that day--it is really amazing to watch him go thru all this transition. He is also in the world of the terrible 2's..but that requires an entire post to it is his b-day so I we will give him a pass this time and not talk about this at all.

O is doing great! At his 10 week appointment he weighed 12 lbs and 22 1/2 inches long! He is starting to coo and he laughs a lot. He is a very laid back-sometimes I feel guilty because he can sit on the bouncy for hours and not complain. He enjoys it when someone talks to him..I think he wouldn't mind if someone talks to him all day! He gets this from S's mom which is cute for now, but I don't think it will be very cute down the road!! He hates tummy time...oh does he hate it! We try it everyday and if we are lucky if we can get him to do it for about 2 minutes. His head is getting somewhat flat in the back, which concerns me a lot. I've talked to our doctor about it and she said it is okay and normal. It is not severe where he will need a helmet, it will eventually correct itself once he starts getting more mobile. I hope this is true and we are trying to get him off his back more, but it is hard at this age since they sleep so much! ARGH!! He is such a sweet little boy and everyday I can't believe we got lucky 2x-we are very thankful for all of our blessings. I am still pumping and feeding. When I started this ritual again, I told myself I will take it one day at a time--and I was hoping I can last until he was 6 weeks old--I am surprise I am still doing it and he is already 15 weeks old! I don't know how much longer I will do this and I feel good the way things worked out.

I need to write about trying to find a job or the lack of job out there. It is very frustrating and scary--but that is for another post.

Sorry for being gone so long again..but I will really try harder this year!
