Oh thank goodness

We have our computer back! I am so happy :) I was going through some serious withdrawals not being able to post pics of my sweethearts. And Alex is getting sooo big! Today he had his 2 month check up! Seriously! sigh... my days with a baby are numbered and it's bittersweet. I definitely look forward to his milestones and I won't miss the long nights and too little sleep, but oh he's such a cuddly boy and I will miss that so much.

So he weighs 12 lbs. and 8 oz. and is 22 inches long. So he's a little chub-a-lub and such a nice little boy. He's a healthy eater and keeps me busy with feedings every three hours, even at night. It's tough because it really is very hard for me to fall asleep, something I'm sure my mom can relate to. So I typically get anywhere from 1-4 hours of sleep a night. By the time I fall asleep he tends to wake up and the cycle just goes on and on until the weekends when I just crash while Eric takes care of things... except feedings. Alex does sleep really well in his swing so I put him in there and sleep for about 3 or 4 hours depending on how long Alex is willing to without eating. Yesterday I got in 4 hours with pretty much no interuptions and it felt so good. I miss sleeping. Alot. Alex is still sleeping in our room in a bassinette but I did get the crib set up last week and now we are just needing a fan to in his room for some white noise and I'll move him in there and start sleep training him. Kinda hard to let him cry it out when he's right next to us!

I took a bunch of pictures of him today. Isn't he hilarious? Oh and please excuse my unedited photos. that just takes too much time!

You can click the slideshow to view the images if you'd like.

Oh and before I forget... Marah had been saying "Holy sh*t", well except she said "Hold my ship" and so I nipped that right in the bud of course. Today she is watching Harry and the Hendersons and the little boy in the movie says "Holy sh*t" and Marah says "Uh-oh." and then comes to me and says "Mom, that boy said 'hold my ship' that's not very nice right mom?" LOL cutie

Well, I better get this place cleaned up! Have a lovely day!
