2 months!

...and a week.
Well Carson has been such a fun little developing boy this past month.
It is so exciting to see him grow.
But I also want to freeze time every day.
I get so sad that he is growing up, so Steve has to remind me often that growing up is a good thing.

Now for some updates:
-Carson is still not anywhere near sleeping through the night. He goes to sleep by 11:00 and usually wakes up between 3:30 and 5 to eat.  Then he'll go back down for a few more hours.
-We have been trying the babywise schedule so he eats, plays, and takes a nap about every 3 hours during the day.
-Carson is no good at taking naps. He usually wakes up after thirty minutes and does not want to go back to sleep.
-I am getting better at figuring out how he likes to nap--in the dark, swaddled, in his bouncer, and a white noise app on.
-He 12 lbs. 2 oz. and 23 and 3/4 in. long.
-He is almost moving up to size 2 diapers! My little chunk.
-He just got his 2 month shots and did pretty well.  He screamed a little and then fell asleep for a few hours.  He had a fever but it went away pretty quickly.
-Carson loves smiling, mostly after he has just been fed.
-He loves to coo and try to talk to us.
-He has recently figured out how to stick out his tongue and thinks it is so funny.
-He thinks Steve is the funniest person ever. Steve hardly has to do anything to get him to smile and giggle.
-His happiest moments every day occur on his playmat.

Here are some pictures from the past month. Most are from my phone and not the best quality.

This is my happy, chunky boy.  I think this picture is hilarious.

After a long play time, I put Carson in his bumbo and he leaned over to the side and fell asleep on the arm rest.

Putting our fall clothes on for the first time.  Note his huge belly--he just ate!

Still getting stuffed into the newborn insert in his car seat because his parents are too lazy to take it out!

Here he is, happy as can be after his shots.

Snuggles with mom.

Diaper head.

Football with dad.

Weekend fishing trip with Steve's program.


  1. such an adorable chunky baby!!! so happy for you guys!

  2. He sure looks like a happy baby! He is darling! Did you read the Babywise book? Let me know how you like that method. Naps were difficult for Louise for a while and that book was recommended to me but I never got around to reading it !
