What I'm Loving Wednesday

I'm loving...that we have finally had temps in the 70's and low 80's!  P and I have finally been enjoying some much needed time outdoors!

I'm loving...this Margaret Miller dress(but in a purple print)!  A must have for our trip to Cayman!

I'm loving...Baby Einstein Videos...definately buy me some time to get things done!!  When these videos are on, P does not pay attention to anything else.  Baby Mozart and Baby Beethoven are our favorites!

I'm loving...the new show, The Voice!  I LOVE all 4 judges(especially Blake and Adam), they were so funny!  Most of the talent was pretty amazing too!  Javier was my favorite!

I'm loving...that Prince William and Kate Middleton are getting married this weekend!  I will definately be recording this!  I think she is so beautiful and cannot wait to see what her dress looks like!!

Old to you...New to me!

When we moved into this house, the lady who lived here left two of these rocking chairs on the front porch.
Not very pretty (probably why she left them!).  Since we have lived here I have talked about painting them or buying new ones, but until now have not followed through with either option!

Recently I decided it was time with spring finally heading our way!

Here is the final product!  I think they look pretty good, if I do say so myself!  Now I need to find a little table to go with them!

Next project is revamping some old lamps I no longer use...I will let you know how it goes!
I think I am starting a love affair with spray paint!!

Our little guy!

By little I mean short!

Parker had his 4 month appointment today and he did great.  He talked to me during the entire 45 minutes we had to wait to see the doctor...which helped to make me less annoyed!!  Thank goodness he was not screaming the entire time like the slightly annoying  precious 2 year old little girl next to us!!

While he got his shots I tried to keep him preoccupied with his links but as soon as that needle went in, his tiny lower lip shot out and he let out the saddest little cry.  But that is what it single cry.  He did great which was such a relief to me, since the hubby was unable to make this appointment.

He weighed in at 14lbs 9oz (50th percentile)
Measured 24 inches (25th percentile)  Poor thing...but I guess this is what happens when your mom is 5'3(even though my drivers license says 5'5...shhh) 

But overall he is doing great and moving right along with development and that is all we really care about!  The minor heart murmur he has sounds much better and his little herniated belly button is also looking great! 

Now I am off to play with my little drooling machine!!

Note to Self

When your handsome little guy decides to put himself to bed at 8:30, you should probably go to bed shortly after. 
 Do not stay up all night,  because he does not care that you want him to wake up at his usual time of 7am.  He is going to be up ready to go at 530.

On my 3rd cup of coffee.  He is now passed out and I am wired.
Oh and his Dad is still sleeping like an angel...not a clue!  Must be nice!

4 Months Old...No Joke!!

Can you believe it?? 
Because I sure can't!  How is my baby boy already four months old? (Thats 1/3 of a year)

We do not have our 4 month appointment until next week, so I will update with all of his stats then.

So what is going on with Park this month...

-He is trying soo hard to roll over.  He can go from his tummy to his back but not yet from his back to his tummy.  He is always up on his side fighting to get there, but it has not happned just yet.  I would be shocked if he didn't get it here in the next few days.

-He laughs and smiles all the time (well not ALL the time...but most of the time)

-Constantly reaching for things and really focusing on objects

-Starting to enjoy tummy time a little more than he has in the past!  Which is good bc he is getting a little flat spot on his head that we need to fix itself

-Loves to talk...we have many interesting conversations

-He started teething.  Spending most of his day drooling and chewing on everything he can get into his mouth.

-Still sleeps through the night.  Usually goes down around 930/10 and sleeps until 7am. Been on this schedule for well over a month now.  But,  now that he is teething getting to bed has become a little more of a challenge.  He tends to get  fussy at bedtime.  Some nights better than others. 

-L.O.V.E.S. his jumperoo.  Seriously.  He would stay in this thing all day if I would allow it!  He started off slow but now he jumps around like a rock star.  If you do not have a jumperoo...get one...NOW!

-Went to Daddy's office for the first time...he sure does love the attention from the ladies!!

He really is developing quite the little personality.  He will just lay on his mat and talk to himself, make himself laugh and entertain himself.  It is too funny!

Taking his monthly pics proved to be a little more difficult.  He was pushing himself out of his chair and would not keep still!! At one point his head was on the seat and he had the rest of his body off the chair!  I think I am going to have my hands full!!
