2 Months Old

Jonathan turned 2 months old on Monday. Here is it Friday and I still haven't taken his monthly pic with Mickey. (We have a Mickey Mouse doll that I plan to take his pic with each month to easily see how he's grown.)
But I do have these that I took yesterday.

At his 2 month check up on Tuesday, he weighed in at 10lbs 5oz and 23 inches long.
A few other things to note:
*Is still sleeping quite a bit. His awake periods are usually anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour and then he's spent.
*Loves to be held. Especially if he's tired. He would much rather go to sleep in my arms. There have been quite a few times I've just had to listen to him scream while I tend to the girls, get a shower, cook supper, etc.
*Is eating about every 2 hours through the day. At night he's usually awake twice to eat. Typically he has a good four hour stretch of sleep, and then wants to eat again after a couple of hours.
*Is still sleeping in our room in the glider. Since he's up a couple times through the night this has been easiest, but I'm hoping to get him in his crib soon. Both Natalie and Abigail were in their own room after the first couple weeks. I think since I know he is my last baby, it's making it a little harder to move him out.
* Is wearing 0-3 month clothing and size 1 diapers. He had several really cute newborn size outfits that he never even got to wear!

We are loving him so!!

Scrapbook Sussies October 2010 Reveal

I've got the rest of my October Sussie Layouts for you today.
I actually had some Easter pictures that went great with the Echo Park side of the kit.
Natalie really wanted 'The Princess and the Frog' for Easter and she was so very excited when she saw the DVD in her basket. I'm so glad I caught her facial expression when she saw it.

And these two are with the WRMemory Keepers, Halloween side.

As always there is so much packed in these kits that I've got tons of product left over. Hoping to get a couple more pages done with this one before I pack it away!

Happy Happy Birthday

Today this girl:
turns four years old! It still seems like just yesterday we were bringing home this tiny little bundle.
John was off yesterday and working today so, yesterday we took her to her restaurant of choice (McD's) for her birthday lunch. We'll be celebrating this weekend with a train ride (that she doesn't know about yet!) and then a family party on Sunday.
She is obsessed with all things Toy Story right now and she especially loves Jessie the cowgirl. We got her a Jessie costume for Halloween, but she has wore it just about every day since we came home with it. Of course she has it on today:
And I had do make a layout documenting a few things about her right now. Made with the October Sussies kit: (I'll have more Oct Sussie Layouts a bit later)

Happy Birthday sweet girl!

Dixie Pieces *October Reveal*

It's that time again! The new kit is up for sale over at Dixie Pieces.
Here's what I did with the kit:

I had these pictures of Abigail from last fall that I still hadn't scrapped yet. When I pulled them out I was just amazed at how much she has changed in 12 months! How come as parents, we never get used to that?:)
I used my Making Memories Slice to cut those scallop hearts.

And here's the second page I've done with Jonathan. I LOVE that I can scrap girl and BOY pages now! I thought the banner trend that's so popular right now went great with a Roll Tide page!

Isn't she just soo cute with those pigtails? Used my Slice again to cut out that 2.

There's a fun roll of red tape in this kit. I used it to make those red starburst flowers. I laid the flower out on a white piece of cardstock and then just cut it out. There are also some stamps in this kit. The "Make a Wish" is one of them. Stamped it on some brown cardstock and cut it out.

Another item in this kit is this cute little accordian album. I cut it apart to make this mini cards. The album is big enough that once you cut it apart, you could make four of these little cards.
Head on over to Dixie Pieces gallery to see what the rest of the team did!
Don't forget we also have a fun contest going on over there through the end of the month. You can join in anytime.
