Forgetting to Remember

I'm going to have to start a blog journal for topics. Several times a day lately I’ve had thoughts that would be good to document and every single time I have sat down to blog my brain shuts down and all I can think is “Now what was it I wanted to remember?” And I sit here for several minutes while my brain short circuits trying to remember until I finally give up and go fold laundry or something that doesn’t require thinking. Hisssssssss boooooooooo.

3 Months Big

Henry is 3 months old today was 3 months old on Tuesday. Hard to believe so much time has passed already. Here is what he’s been up to lately and what he enjoys doing:

Laying on his play mat and looking at himself in the mirror on it.
Watching videos of himself on my phone
Looking at the bright light of the screen on my phone
Watching his Baby Einstein video, Baby Mozart

LOVES talking to his mama and always smiles when he sees her face :)
LOVES talking to his daddy and always smiles when he sees his face :)
He gets so excited sometimes talking to us that he does this little cough

Adores watching his brother and sisters talk to him and especially enjoys watching his littlest older sister perform tricks for him

He smiles at every one and can make them squeal with delight
Loves being in his car seat and it puts him to sleep almost every time he gets in

Blows raspberries all the time and has started drooling a lot

Gets so excited when we lay him in his crib to watch his mobile go round and round

Eats every 3-4 hours
Sleeps 5-6 hours in a stretch at night
Naps for 1 1/2 - 2 hours in the morning and afternoon
Takes 1 - 2 cat naps in the evening before bed time between 9 and 10

Just graduated to a size 3 diaper

Has the best daddy in the whole wide world

p.s. I posted twice today so keep scrolling :)

Getin52-Last Week

I’m enjoying the Getin52 project but am so behind on posting. Last week I had the great idea to film Olivia and I doing her homework like we do every afternoon on the couch. And I kept it real. Except for the random piece of food (I think it was a cashew) under the side table that I just had to edit out.

I learned two things that I need to work on from this series:

1. Learn to hide the remote better.

2. Loose weight.

Yes, yes, I know. I just had a baby. But I “just had that baby” 3 whole months ago and am fully recovered from it so there are no excuses really except that I am lazy. Haha! And seeing yourself in the frame on a regular basis really can be eye opening. A little too much at times :) But B&W conversions can hide a multitude of sins. And pounds. LOL!!!!
