I have a new baby, I am kidding... But he is just so different? He is bigger. He is stronger. He is sweeter. What is this love. Oh, that's right... it's motherhood.

Eating: M is currently feasting on the same feast, breast milk... unfortunately, I got a slight cold / allergies; as did Adam. But, what that does to your milk is crazy. It decreased at least in the pumping faze and so... I had to set strict alarms on my phone for every 3 hours to make sure I was either pumping or feeding.

Sleeping: As exciting as the sleeping was, he is awake a little more throughout the day. Still sleeping through the night, or at least the midnight to...(6-8 AM) depending on the day, which is great for my day mood. I am also an early riser. So when he goes down for his first nap of the day, after the first feeding until about 9-10 AM, I am able to shower, start a load of laundry, make the bed and complete the tasks that keep me sane.

Doing: He is infatuated with cuddling, has started to hold his head up a little bit more...(this realization broke my heart and made me more excited than I should be all in one moment as I realized how quickly he is growing and changing).

Wearing: He is still wearing newborn clothes, not much has changed in this department but... he is FINALLY back to his birth weight. I have come to realize that there are a few 0-3 sizes that will fit him, and they are the best because he is getting long and that means newborn pants are getting a little short, which is okay! But... Gap's 0-3 is WAY bigger than any other 0-3 that I have purchased, thanks Gap.

Biggest Milestone: He sat through his first Rangers game, well, slept... but, that was pretty exciting. He also is learning to self-soothe and while feeding grabs my collar bone and cuddles tight until he falls asleep.


Favorite Thing: Being held + FED, this little guy can eat.

Sweetest Thing He Does: He passes out as soon as I snatch him up and starts to whimper if I put him down before he is fully asleep.

Favorite Part About This Age: He is so easy to schedule around if I make sure to plan his feeding and sleeping times accordingly. Though I know this is a phase, it sure is nice to have a routine.

Current Items I Can't Live Without to Survive Motherhood: Oh gosh, this list could be long. I think I will have to do a separate post on that. The short list? His Orbit Car Seat (He sleeps so well in the car), Kickee Pants outfits and the Baby Bliss store in Snider Plaza... It literally has EVERYTHING I need.
