My Birthday Present to Mom

Hi guys! It's me again. 

Just a quick post between naps (I've been sleeping a lot lately. Last night I went 9 1/2 hours between feedings. Boy was I starving when I woke up!) to show you my surprise for Mom's birthday.

Pretty cool, huh? I've been working on it in the bassinet in my spare time. (You know, before she wakes up in the morning.) She was so excited when she saw it that she had me do it again for the camera. And since it's her birthday I thought "sure..why not?"

I'm taking her out tomorrow to get some cheesy cake she keeps talking about. (I don't know about you, but  milk and cookies would be at the top of my list.)

And I may even let her sleep in.

Time to roll!

My Life at 9 Weeks

Hi everybody! It's Remy.

Mom asked me to update everyone on what my life is like at 9 weeks and I am happy to share. Plus she's been really great at changing my diapers so I kind of owe her. Here goes...

Let's start with my two month pictures. I threw in an extra one because 1. Dad took such great pictures of me and 2. I'm writing this post so I can put in as many as I want.

Yes, that's me! Can you believe I can sit up? (With some assistance of course.)

Having a hard time remembering what I looked like last month? I've provided you a side by side comparison for your convenience. (And because I wanted to post another picture of yours truly.)

Now for the details..

I'm starting to really get Mom into a great schedule. She is learning fast when I am tired and puts me in my crib to sleep. She swaddles me up tight and turns on my new mobile so I have something to watch until I fall asleep, which doesn't take long if I'm not overtired. I take 3 naps during the day. A short one in the morning, a long one around noon and another short one in the afternoon. Mom tries to get me to sleep early at night, but I consider myself a night owl and won't even consider going to sleep until at least 11pm.

I'm smiling a lot now. And I throw in a few coos just to keep it exciting for Mom.  Mom says that sometimes I sound like I'm laughing in my sleep. I'm probably dreaming about taking a bubble bath, which I'm doing more often. They are a lot of fun, and a good way to wind down at the end of a long day. ('s not easy being this cute all the time!)

I found my hands the other day. I can hold them in front of my face and look at them. I am also trying desperately to get them into my mouth if only they would just stop moving so much! I've caught my thumb a few times and boy does it hit the spot in between feedings.

And my most recent news...

This morning, Mom found me in the bassinet on my stomach. I know... I was surprised too!

Uh oh...time to go. Mom says it's tummy time.

10 things I've learned in two months..

1. Laundry isn't so horrible when there are teenie tiny socks involved.
2. Not all babies go to sleep on their own. (See item #6)
3. With all of the clothes in the closet, sometimes I still prefer a naked baby.
4. I never thought I'd be so relieved to hear someone "toot".
5. Babies grow FAST. (We are currently at 11.2 lbs.)
6. I have mastered the sleep dance. (See item #2)
7. My diaper changing speed is still not fast enough.
8. I am happy sitting perfectly still for as long as required as long as I'm holding a sleeping baby. (See items #2 & 7)
9. There are moments for spontaneity. Like when you realize he's about to fall asleep so you do a quick photo shoot.

10. Photo shoots make babies sleepy.
