3 Months

Bennett is now 3 months.  He is still the sweetest baby around.  He never cries and is always happy. 
So, here are some fun facts on Bennett this month.

1.   You still eat every 2 to 3 hours and you are eating 5 1/2 oz.
2.   You wear size 2 diapers.
3.   You cannot wear anything under 3 months.  Most things are 3-6 or 6-9 months that you are 
      wearing (the outfit in your 3 month picture is 6 months).
4.   You sleep really good at night.  You always make it at least till 3:00 AM but most of the time you
       can go past that.  Last night you slept all night.  You were asleep by 10 PM and didn't wake up
       till 7 AM.
5.   You have been trying to roll over a lot.  Pretty much every time I lay you down you start going
      on your side.  You roll to the right and you get so mad when you just stay on your side.  I bet
      you'll be rolling very soon.
6.   You have discovered your tongue.  It's pretty cute.
7.   You did get your shots recently and you did great. 
8.   You weigh 17 pds.
9.   You like your floor mat and can kick your legs up to start the music.
10. You went to the river for the first time on your 3 month birthday.

Bennett we love you and you have definitely spoiled us with how easy you are.  You are getting rolls just like Landon had but you are bigger than what he was at this point.  Landon was 14 pounds at 3 months.  I guess we grow them big around here! 

So here is a picture of my big 38 pound kid and my 17 pound baby.

2 month check-up

Last Wednesday we took Bennett to his 2 month check-up & for my 6 week post visit (yes I'm a bit past but wasn't too concerned).  Our appointment went great but it took forever. Bennett had to get 2 shots and the poor thing cried but not for long. He did good after with no fever! Landon always ran a fever. Bennett got his stats which I was curious to see since he seems big to me.
At 11 weeks he weighed 16lbs 4oz = 98.21%
He was 24" long = 66.81%
His head was 42cm = 80.31%
So I'd say we've got a big boy. I'll have to weigh him again in a week when he'll be 3 months.
Our doctor is beyond wonderful and we wouldn't trade him for the world.  Even if he is running behind most of the time.  We got there at 3:15 for our 3:20 and 3:30 appointments, we sat in the nasty waiting room till about 4:15, and by the time we were both done it was 5:40.  Our doctor definitely takes his time with his patients and we do like that.  He even sent the hubs a text that night apologizing about the long wait.  We thought that was super nice of him to do that. 
 Landon wanted his picture taken with spiderman.
 Me and my boys.  Bennett decided to stick his tongue out :)

Mother's Day Weekend

This weekend we attended Evan's 1st birthday party on Saturday.  It was an outside event so they had the slip-n-slide going, a pool for the kids, and we grilled out hot dogs.  It was warmer than we thought it was going to be so the water was great.  We got there at 11:00 and our big boys played outside till about 3:00.  I hung out inside with B for the most part. 
 I love this boy so much!
 The men grilling the hot dogs. 
 This big boy had so much fun playing outside.
Once Landon and Luke came inside our men started talking about wanting to go fishing.  WHAT???  I had to remind them that it was Mother's Day weekend.  They told us to go get a pedicure and by golly we took them up on it.  Gwen and I took off and went to a few stores and then got our pedicure.  Oh, and I did get me some new jeans and a new nail polish (China Glaze Pool Party)from my boys as well.
On Sunday we had Bennett's dedication at church. 
And then we went to brunch at Gastons with my MIL, Mimi, and her two girls.  It was super busy.  We had reservations at noon and we even had to wait 20 minutes.  I kept taking Landon outside to throw coins into the fish (think I gave them $20). 

We had a really good weekend!  Now here are some random pictures from my phone that I want to share.
Things are starting to grow in the garden :)
Here is the sweet Bennett.  We have his doctors appointment tomorrow (boo on shots) so I'll put up his stats later this week.

Fabulous Friday

So I wanted to share a few things I'm loving right now.

First up are these.  Twizzlers super long nibs.  I seriously can eat a bag in a day.  But I'm trying to take it slow and make them last a bit longer. :) 

Ok I'll be honest...I loved these books.  
The next book I'm going to read (when I am not re-reading Grey's) is Bethenny's book.  I enjoy her show and wanted to read her new book. 

And I love Giuliana and Bill so I am going to read their book as well.

I've been watching all of my reality shows and I've finally caught up with Grey's Anatomy.  I will try to watch last nights episode sometime today but who knows if the boys agree with that. :)

I have been introduced to a new app (maybe it isn't new to you but for me it is).  It is spotify and it gives you instant access to all the music in the world.

I'm loving my Pandora...90's mix is my favorite at the moment. 

I've also started using my couch to 5K app again.  I am on week 5 of it and doing good so far.  Yes it is sometimes hard but I need to lose my baby belly that is lingering around (probably from those darn twizzlers). 

This weekend we have a few celebrations going on.  I have a baby shower for my friend Megan tomorrow at 11:00.  She is welcoming baby Krew at the end of July and we can't wait to meet him.  Evan is having his 1st birthday and it is also at11:00 so I might be running here and there.  Then at 3:30 we are going to go celebrate our friends, the Springfield's, sons 3rd birthday.  I haven't seen Bryce in a long time and I hate that.  I hate admitting this but we haven't even met their little girl who was born last August.  So tomorrow we'll get to introduce our families to both new babies.  And then Sunday is Mother's Day.  We will be having Bennett's baby dedication at church tomorrow and then we are having lunch at Gaston's.  Can't wait! 

Do They Look Alike?

Here is Bennett and this was taken a few weeks ago.
Here is Landon when he was about 2-3 months I would guess.

More Progess in the Backyard

Look what was delivered today!  It is perfect and I'm so glad we finally got it.
He was at school when it was delivered so I was super pumped for him to get home.  We usually stop for Sonic drinks after school but today he wasn't wanting one.  He was too excited to see his swing set.  When we got home he ran straight outside but he went to his gator.  I was a little confused but he said he had to drive over to the swing set.  So funny and look how happy he is here.
 Going up in the fort area for the first time.  It's really spacious up there (I even got up there and went down the slide).   
 He is so cute :)
 Here is a picture of our garden...things are growing!
 So the backyard is looking really good!  We have the garden, a swing set, and patio furniture!  Guess it's time for cookouts and get-togethers :)

Backyard Progress

Well we finally bought patio furniture this past weekend. We have been talking about fixing up the back deck (adding a roof) but it was crazy expensive and not something we wanted to put that much $ in. So we went with a table and umbrella set (gives us shade) and a big rug (it hides a lot of the deck). We even bought some fun plants. This was a lot cheaper than our original thoughts and we really like how it looks already. I'm sure we'll do more but this is what we've got for now. Oh, and on Tuesday the new swing set is being delivered and set up. Landon is pumped!!! I see many evenings spent in our backyard (don't worry-I have bug spray and those smelly candles ready to go).
