He's Getting So Big :(

All bundled up to go on a walk
Such a cutie :)
Um...Daddy, please stop!
My lil walking monkey!
Fun bath time
He's getting bigger and bigger every second. He's starting to outgrow his newborn clothes :(But, he's starting to coo and "talk" a lot more. I love it. He's so much fun and I'm enjoying him so much.
OH!! The doctor prescribed drops for his colic and they are a miracle! He is a totally different baby.

Grant Me The Serenity....

Davis has been sooo very fussy lately and I've been at my wits end. It breaks my heart to heart him cry like that. He just sounds like he is in pain and that maybe his little tummy is hurting him. At times, it makes me want to cry. I try putting him in his crib and let him cry for a little bit, but it keeps going. And going. And going. We bought some mylecon and I really can't even tell if they work or not. I was finally able to go to the doctor today and yes, he has colic. This is so frustrating! The doctor said the good thing is it usually lasts for only 4 months. That's a good thing? Great. So I have 3 more months of screaming to deal with. Am I ever going to catch up on sleep? I think not at this point. My mom said that I had colic for close to a year. Am I being punished for being such an awful baby? Haha. Okay, I know the answer to that, but I can't help but think that. I was really just hoping that Davis had a severe stomach ache or just really bad gas or something. Lord have mercy!

Of course, whenever Michael gets home, he's a beautiful sleeeping baby. No crying. No screaming. So what's the big deal? Surely it can't be that bad. I'm going to have to start hiding a video camera so he can see what I deal with. Okay, deep breath. I can do this. Let the good times roll! Haha :)

Trip to Gramps and Nana's House

This past week, I felt a little daring and took a trip to see my family. Okay, not like it's a long trip or anything, but I haven't been in the car that long with Davis yet, let alone by myself. I felt crazy trying to run around the house and think of everything I needed to pack for him. Oh yeah, I have to pack for myself also. Don't forget baby. Haha...j/k. I tried to load everything up before I fed Davis to be ready to go. Fed him and flew in the car. Not too bad! He looooves being in the car, so thankfully, he slept the entire way. Ahhh.....so reassuring. We had such a great time while we were there that I really didn't want to leave. I was able to hang out with my sister, Emilee, everyday while we were there. I attempted to buy clothes on the trip, but with no success. I'm in that awkard stage again. Can't wear maternity clothes, but can't wear mine yet. Good times! But we went and ran errands and stuff, while my dad watched Davis. I did actually remember to pack the pump which is a true lifesaver! At my dad's house, they have the cutest nursery set up. Davis is the first grandchild, so for now, it's his room. Seeing as how there are 6 girls in the family, he'll be sharing someday. :) It's so great though to have everything there. He has the cutest little crib and Jamie stocked the room with pretty much everything we need while we were there. Note to self!
I was also able to get a much needed massage and seriously didn't want to get off the table when she was done. I am so sore in places and had no idea. I think I need to do that weekly. Haha...and then I wake up! It was such a nice treat, though. My dad had left work early that day to watch the lil munchkin. They are so great and sooo cute with him. I love watching them togheter. It's adorable.
The day I had to leave though was so blah. Blah as in the weather, that is. It had been storming on and off and I was so tired. But leave it to me, I'm going to figure it out. I get on the road and everything is nice and clear and I think it's going to be great. Wait, it's 5pm rush hour. What did I do!? UGGGG!!! Storm is back like a tsunami and Davis is crying. This nice 1 1/2 trip turned into almost 3 hours real quick. But we made it home in one piece and that's all that matters. Did I mention I'm ready to go back home again? Having Davis makes me realize I'm even more homesick now than before!

He's getting bigger :( Tear, tear

Sleep. A Thing of the Past.

I have never been one to be able to get by on little sleep. I love sleep. Probably a little too much, seeing as how I don't remember what that's like anymore. Used to, I could barely function on anything less than 6 hours. Now I get super excited if I am able to sleep 3-4 hours straight. I never thought I would be saying that. Some days are better than others, though. It's not always bad, but when it's bad, I'm a walking zombie. I feel like I'm stuck in the dessert and sweating like a pig. I think I run fevers and my body feels like a limp noodle. I've been wondering a lot lately how in the world do people have more than one child? It seems close to impossible to me right now.

Davis looooves being out in public. If we are out to dinner or at someone's house, he is so good. He sleeps great. Especially in the car! But then if we have to stop at a red light, he freaks out. He loves motion and does not like sitting still. At all. Ever. This of course can cause problems at 3am when all I want to do is sleep. He loves going on long walks also and being outside. Then again, do not stop pushing the stroller. If I stop to talk to someone, I have to keep pushing it back and forth as not to disrupt the little man. I'm so in for it :) haha.

He makes the cutest little faces though. He purses his lips into a little O and looks like a cute monkey. It's adorable. And when he smiles it just melts my heart. Of course, it's probably just gas, but I'd like to think otherwise. He makes the funniest noises, especially when he sleeps. He actually sounds like E.T. sometimes and it's so funny. I absolutely hate when he cries and always wish there was something that I could do for him. Like right now, he's been crying for about 2 hours and I think it's probably due to something I ate today. Great. Oh the joys of breastfeeding. I didn't even think anything I had today was too spicy, but his little tummy thinks otherwise apparently. I've tried placing him on his belly, rubbing his feet, warm cloths, drops, you name it. Just makes me so sad. And of course frustrated a little too. But then I see that little face and of course can't get too mad.

Pics From Birth to 3 weeks

I can't describe at all how much I am sooooo in love with Davis and how fulfilled my life seems now. It is the best feeling ever. I have my little family and am loving every minute of it. He already has so much of a personality and has changed so much already....which I don't like. I wish he would stay this way. He's so sweet to watch and look at his little facial expressions. And how he looooves his daddy :)

He's the Boss

Davis is doing so great and I really have no complaints. Of course, I miss my sleep, but then when I go into his room at night and see his little face, I can't possibly be too upset. He's the sweetest thing ever. But, we are still on his schedule it seems, so he's the boss. I'm trying really hard to get him to eat every 3 hours. It's working pretty well, but it's still hard at times. During the night is a different story. Last night, he actually woke up at 1am and 4am, sleeping 3 hours between every feeding. I'm hoping for 4 hours in between, but this isn't so bad. I'm so in love with him that I really hate when the days end. I can't wait until the next morning when I can see his little face.

We had his two week checkup yesterday and everything is going great! He's gained his birth weight and then some, so atleast I know he's eating enough food. I had been a little concerned with a few red bumps that have appeared on him and come to find out that it's baby acne. These and his little red nose spot will go away probably within the month.

After Davis' second night of being at home, he is already sleeping in his own room. He does not like the bassinet that we have in our room at all and prefers his crib. I just say that's because I had all the mattresses out on the floor in Target and was trying them for myself. Today has been my first day at home completely alone with him and so far, so good. We were able to go on a good 3 mile walk this morning...thank goodness. I've actually been able to get some stuff done around the house and take a nap. Hopefully this is a good sign! *crossing fingers* And I also really can't wait until we go and take pictures with him. I think we are going to wait until next month, but now all of a sudden, that seems so far away. He's changing so much already! I don't want him to get big. He's so sweet and cute like this that thinking of him getting bigger makes me sad already. Lord, I know. Michael and I were actually able to go out to eat last night which felt like we should get a medal or something. Haha. It is really weird not having him at home with me. I really don't think I would be doing so great today if he hadn't helped me out so much when he was here. He is so wonderful. One night he even surprised me with a candlelight dinner at home. It was fantastic...especially with my hair sticking straight up and bags down to my chin! :)I am so blessed and love the life that we have all made together. I am so excited to have Davis in my life!
