Congestion, Stomach bug and then shots...

My poor baby!

Trigg had a small cold, congestion last weekend thru the week and then this past weekend came down with a stomach bug that left him throwing up his formula and having diarrhea. To top it all off, he finally starts to feel better and he went this morning for his 2 month check-up and had to have shots. He did not like those at all. It made me sick to my tummy to watch that. I guess you can say welcome to daycare...Kids always seem to be sicker when they are in daycare rather than at home or around a few kids. Just one of the few cons we will have to work through. He should be building up his immune system so hopefully in the future he can fight this nasty stuff better.

Other than him fighting off all these sickness's, he is doing great! He weighed in at 11 lbs 10 oz, 50th percentile, and he is 24 inches long (2 feet), 90th percentile! His development is right on track and he is a healthy young man other than the previous stated above. :)

Even though he feels like crap he still manages to smile! That's my baby boy!

Off to school

This is a picture of Kaid's 1st Day of 2nd grade. I got the picture from his mom's blog page b/c we couldn't be there to take one ourselves (hope you don't mind Val)! Isn't he just so handsome...

Lost, but not found...

Here's the thing, no one told you that once you have a baby your brain becomes mush. I have probably lost all but a few of my brain cells. I am on my 4th week of being back to work and I am forgetting things left and right. I also was given 10 more responsibilities when I returned so I have no time to think about anything other than what I am doing but yet my brain is off in la-la land even for those tasks.

I am having the hardest time deciding on the look for my blog page. I have no idea why this is so difficult for me, maybe it' b/c I have lots of different taste's or maybe I just can't make a decision b/c of the previously stated brain mush syndrome.

I usually am on top of things, some may even say a little too on top of things at times but I just can't pull it together. I am all over the place these days. It seems like the only thing I can do right (thank goodness) is take care of my boys!

Which by the way:
Kaid started 2nd Grade today! He was nervous but excited. He has a different teacher (which we hope makes for a good year compared to last year), and a classroom full of his friends (which could be bad or good). Good luck on your 1st day back Kaid! I know you will do great. Trigg has mostly recovered from having a cold and fever all weekend. He is back to his self and I couldn't be happier. Hate when they are sick and you feel so helpless :(

Well I will leave this post with a simple request:
If you find my brain laying around, please return it immediately.

8/11/2009- Two Months Old

My little man is two months old today! I can't believe it has been that long...
Trigg has changed so much since he was born.

What he is doing:

-smiles all the time :)
-cooing (talking) to us when he is really happy or excited
-sleeping on his side in his pack n play next to mommy's side of the bed b/c he doesn't like sleeping on his back
-eating 6 oz every 3-4 hrs
-burps so easy, most the time before you even pull him up into burp position
-obsessed with his tongue and anyone else's who wants to stick it out at him
-mimics your facial expressions
-loves bath time but hates to be cold :)
-bedtime is 9:30, sleeps till 2am, feeds, then sleeps till 6-7am
-wearing 0-3 months clothes but some things are still too big
-wears NB size shoes (still)
-loves to lay chest to chest and his bottom patted gently
-starting to suck his fingers and is discovering his hands
-likes to play on his back but not so much on his tummy
-can roll to one side but not all the way over
-loves, loves his bouncy seat as long as it is bouncing
-doesn't like the swing unless he's sleeping and doesn't know he's in it :)
-moves his legs back and forth all the time, like he is trying to walk off
-his cries are changing and he makes a pout face when he's upset or really hungry
-stays awake more during the day and fights his sleep
-takes a passe but not very often
-can hold his head up for almost a minute at a time before it bounces back down or back

and last but not least he loves his mommy, daddy & bubba very much!
We love him too!

Happy 2 months Trigg, you are my pride & joy!
