Ten Things Tuesday

1. I spilled 2 oz of pumped breast milk this morning :(

2. Garrett's parents spilled some this weekend too.

3. Garrett and I went to see 2012 on Sunday. It was OK. Good special effects but many "that so wouldn't happen" moments.

4. New Moon was awesome! Yeah, lots of movies this weekend.

5. I finally set up my digital photo frame at work. I love having dozens of Connor pictures to look at all day.

6. I think Connor's reflux medication is starting to really work. knocks on wood...

7. Christmas music is on the radio & yes, I'm one of the huge dorks who LOVES it. Thankfully my lovely co-worker Kathy loves it just as much as I do.

8. Our management company here at the office paid to have all the mucky leaves cleared away from the parking lot and walk ways. Sounds good right? Except these are the same people who DIDN't pay to have 2 inches of solid ice (that hung around for 2 weeks) cleared away. Which is more dangerous???

9. I can't wait for Thursday. FOOOOOOOD!!! I love Thanksgiving food.

10. I need a new wardrobe BAD. I don't think there's anything in my closet I absolutely love.

Shots, yes. Short, NO!

Today Connor had his 2 month well baby check up. I can't believe how fast this is flying by. We answered all the normal questions...how's he sleeping, blah, blah, blah. He weighed in a 12lb 1 oz (55-60th %tile) and his length measured 24 3/4 inches (97th %tile !!!). Long and skinny he most certainly is. No wonder he doesn't fit properly into any clothes. If it's long enough, it's baggy around the middle. Head circumference was 80th %tile. He got his first set of shots. Of course he hated that. He screamed for a few minutes (complete w/ tiny baby tears running down his cheeks) and then was fine. He took a long nap this afternoon (giving me a chance to nap since I'll be up until all hours of the night watching New Moon!!!!!). He woke up crabby a little bit ago (of course right when I get a phone call). He ate for awhile and now is back asleep on my lap. I love when he sleeps on me. He always looks so sweet. Daddy will be all alone w/ him this evening while I'm off at the movies so hopefully this afternoon's events won't wreak havoc on Garrett once I leave.

So excited for the movie. We're seeing a double feature...Twilight then New Moon.

Ten Things Tuesday

1. I'm typing this from work :( Even though it's good to be back at work, I'd rather be home with my baby.

2. My mom and I went on a Babies R' Us shopping spree yesterday. Bought a new sling, clothes (on clearance of course), a play mat, some bottles and bottle brushes. We only had 2 bottles (both were free samples) since he's a boob baby. Now that I'm at work he needs a few more bottles.

3. There is a draft down by my feet. Guess I didn't notice it yesterday since I was wearing boots.

4. Cold weather makes me crave Starbucks. They put cocain in Starbucks right? That's the only way I could be this addicted.

5. Connor went to sleep late last night. Like 12:30 late :( However, he then blessed me with 5 1/2 hours of sleep. This is the longest he's ever gone. I haven't slept longer than 4 hours in 8 weeks.

6. Who else is excited for New Moon? ME ME ME! I know Julia is too. Mom and Megan are secretly excited. They're closet Twilight fans.

7. Pumping is a pain in the rear but I'll do it anyway. I want my baby to have breast milk (espescially during flu season).

8. I need to start writing our Christmas letter. I really want to get one out this year.

9. Tonight I need to load pictures of Connor onto my digital photo frame and bring it into work.

10. It feels good to wear heals again.

Ten Things Tuesday

1. I'm thankful for the generosity of our family during this financially difficult few months.

2. The cat just told the dog who is boss. He always seems to forget that the cat rules the roost.

3. I can't believe how early it's getting dark now. It's not even 5 o'clock!

4. I can't watch a TV show or movie where a little boy dies without losing it.

5. I get stupid excited when Starbucks starts using their red cups. It means Thanskgiving and Christmas are right around the corner.

6. I'm reading a new book (and it's not a Twilight book). "Ines of my Soul". So far it's good. Surprisingly I seem to like historical fiction. Another historical fiction book I loved was "I, Mona Lisa." I would've underlined the titles (as proper grammar would dictate) but blogger doesn't let you.

7. Happy birthday last Friday to my mommy.

8. Only 5 pounds left. If I actually got serious about losing weight instead of just letting it come off as it would, I think it would fall off even faster.

9. Speaking of weight, I think Connor is like 12ish pounds now.

10. Time to fold baby laundry.

Good Sleep (only the mom of a newborn would call this good though)

Connor went down around 11:30. He fussed a little around 1:00 and I decided to feed him before I went to sleep. Then I swaddled him (while drowsy). I've found he hates to be swaddled when he's fully awake but doesn't mind if he's sleepy. Then I put him down with his new sound machine (on white noise setting) and he slept until almost 4:00. Then fed him and he was asleep until 7:00. Then he even took a nap this morning so I got a few extra hours. Yay for sliding a little closer to human on the "human/zombie scale."

Ten Things Tuesday

1. Julia got some pictures taken today by the gal that did Connor's newborn photos. We love Lisa!

2. Connor is getting so big.

3. I am wearing my wedding rings again!

4. Missy is playing with baby socks. She loved adult socks before baby socks came into the house. Now she can't get enough of the baby socks. They're the perfect size for her to fling in the air.

5. Please, please, please sleep well tonight Connor.

6. I found a camera I want but have to wait until we can afford it. Maybe after Christmas or tax return this winter. Boo! I want it now :(

7. I love my iPhone. How was it we lived without cell phones just a few years ago and now they're attached to our hands 24/7?

8. Paramore's new CD is awesome. There's not one song on the CD I don't like.

9. Our swing is dying. It was a garage sale find so at least we didn't spend anything on it (picked up by Garrett's grandma). We tried changing the batteries but that didn't work :( We might have to buy a new one soon. It's one of the only places he'll nap that isn't in my arms.

10. I found a sound machine for $10 today (originally $40). Maybe it will help Connor stay asleep.
