Owen 2 Months

It's hard to believe that two months have already went by,
but they have and Owen is now TWO months old!
He weighs 11 lbs. & 12 oz.
His height is 21"
His head circumference is 15 1/4"
I have to say, he's momma's little man. =)
He's still not sleeping thru the night.
He usually wakes up at least twice a night.
However, I took him to a massage therapist last week
to see if she could help with his colic/acid reflux
and since then he has slept one full night in his OWN bed.
YAY! Because on the nights that he doesn't sleep,
he's either put in our bed or his swing,
so I'm hoping he'll start sleeping in his bed.
He's also on Enfamil for fussiness & gas formula.
I was nursing, but it was not settling good with him
and his stomach seemed to be worse,
so we switched him to formula
and it has helped.
He's also started smiling and cooing.
It's the cutest thing!
I had to take both him and Olivia to get shots today. =(
Here they are waiting to see the doctor.
I have to say that I think we've adjusted
quite well since Owen's arrival.
I figured Olivia would try to kill him,
but as you can see from the picture above,
she loves him dearly!
She has to kiss him at least 100 times a day
and if he gets fussy and she doesn't think that
I'm getting to him quick enough,
she starts freaking out.
I think she's going to be a very protective big sister!
All in all, we're having the time of our lives
with our two babies.

Happy 2 months Owen!

Chuckie Cheese & Ice Cream

Saturday was a busy day.
 I got up,
went to Zumba, a birthday party,
Chuckie Cheese, to eat & ended up at the mall.
Like I said, busy day.
Our first stop (after Zumba)
was my little cousin, Landon's birthday party.
Here's the birthday boy with his BIG gun. =)

After Landon's party at their house,
we all went to Chuckie Cheese.
Ben had played in a corn-hole tournament earlier
and he couldn't go to the birthday party at their house,
but he met up with us for the trip to Chuckie Cheese.
My mom kept Owen for us so we could just take Olivia
 and let me tell you, that was a HUGE help
because Chuckie Cheese was a CRAZY mad-house!
I'm not sure what Olivia really thought of it all,
but she "played" a couple of the games.
Here's Olivia and Landon riding in the car car. =)

Since Chuckie Cheese was so crazy,
we didn't eat there, we went to El Chico's instead.
And who can avoid the ice cream?
Obviously, not these two. LOL!
I'm pretty sure she LOVED it!

I hope everyone had a good weekend.
I'm looking forward to taking it easy this week!

Food, Friends & Fun Times

Friday night we met up with some of our friends to catch up!
It had been FOREVER since all of us got together.
A little background info...
If you look at our group of friends,
you would think that a few months ago
that we all got together and planned to get pregnant.
To much disbelief, it was not planned,
but three of my best friends and myself all had babies
within months of one another
and Friday night all us of except one,
got together to eat and catch up.
Here's the group pic of all of us.
Even though Kayla & Jenny are the one's holding the babies,
they are not their mommas.
They're the babies aunties. =)
Here's my two guys!
Here's little Ms. Stella & her daddy Josh.
(I'm not sure why this pic is sideways)
Here's little Ms. Kenlee. Isn't she the cutest??
And here's Kenlee's daddy, Jesse & my sweet pea Olivia,
also known as the child who eats everything!
She was too funny last night because
she just kept eating & eating & eating!
You can tell by looking at her that
 she doesn't miss any meals! LOL!

We had lots of fun catching up with our friends
and I'm so excited that all of our babies are going
to get to grow up with one another!

Sixteen Months

 you are SIXTEEN MONTHS old today!
Boy time sure does fly!
What have you been up to these days?

You are into EVERYTHING and are on the go ALL the time.
You are very much a people person.
Everywhere we go you have to tell everyone "hi" & "bye."
People think it's the cutest thing.
I don't think that you'll ever meet a stranger.
(I'm not sure yet if that's a good thing or a bad thing).
You weigh around 22 lbs.
We'll find out exactly how much you
weigh Monday at your doctor's appt.
You're getting to be one big girl.
I can't get you to stay still for nothing.
(Example, picture above).

Your favorite food by far is CHICKEN NUGGETS!
But, for the most part, you will eat just about anything.
You no longer take a bottle! (YAY!!!)
You sleep thru the night.
You usually go to bed around 7 or 8 at night
and then wake up around 8:30 or 9 the next morning.
You also take really good nap(s).
You usually take a nap around 11am and wake up at 1pm.
You are very much on a schedule!

However, you've become quite the stinker lately.
We like to say that you're hitting the terrible two's early. UGH!
For some reason you like to hit these days
and needless to say I'm not a fan!
We're working on it.
I'm hoping you get out of this "phase" sometime soon.
But then, there are days, like yesterday,
when I'm sitting on the couch and you come up
and hug and kiss me... repeatedly.
It's sooo SWEET!!!!!
You're a great big sister!
I can't wait until you and Owen can actually play together!

We love you and Owen more than anything in this whole world!
You both make are lives complete!
Happy 16 months baby girl!

My 100th Post

Wow! It's been awhile since I've updated this thing.
We've been busy little bees lately.
I guess that goes without saying when you have two babies.
Since my last post...
Owen is now 1 month old... almost two months.
Olivia is 15 months... almost 16 months.
They're growing up way to fast!

Olivia is in to EVERYTHING!!
She's one funny girl. She talks constantly.
(Not sure where she gets that from. LOL!)
She loves to play.
She loves getting all of her toys out.
She plays and plays and plays.
Her two favorite shows are:
Olivia & Wheel of Fortune.
Yes, you read that right, Wheel of Fortune.
It's hilarious when it comes on because she just goes wild.
I guess she has a thing for Pat. LOL!!!
She's also quit taking her bottle at night before she goes to bed.
Now we just lay her in bed and she goes right off to sleep.
Praise the Lord!
She pretty much eats everything that we eat,
but I have to say her favorite thing is chicken nuggets
and she loves Happy Meals from McDonald's.
She's getting to be so big.
She LOVES Owen!
She has to give him a kiss at least 100 times a day.
It's the sweetest thing.

What has Owen been up to...
When we last took him to the doctor he weighed 10 lbs. 3 oz.
He's one BIG boy!
He's still sleeping in the bed with us. =(
I wish that we could get him to sleep in his bed,
but he's just not having it.
We've also had to start supplementing with formula
because he was just getting WAY too fussy and spitting up a lot.
We've got him on Enfamil for fussiness and gas
and it seems to be working really good.
He's starting to grow out of his newborn clothes =(
Some of them still fit, but some of them are just way too small.
Other than that, he's pretty sweet.
When I was pregnant with him, I thought it would be horrible to have two babies this close together, but they're so sweet with one another that I wouldn't want it any other way.
