Hanging out in the park

How cute is our little man? We hung out in the park on Saturday with a few friends. One thing we are finding... Owen does NOT enjoy the sunshine in his eyes. That was a fun day. Yesterday was mixed for the little guy... we had another round of vaccinations and Owen had 3 shots. 3. He really, realy didn't like it. Poor thing! But I tried to make it up to him by taking him to mum and baby yoga, which he is thoroughly entertained by.

Ok - baby crying - have a great Tuesday!

Shifting pounds

We've had a seriously busy week!
Monday, Owen and I went to a mum and baby yoga class. It was so fun! Owen loved it. There were songs and fun and lots of good stretches for mom and baby. We joined this great Mom's club called Cupcake. There is a mini-gym, exercise classes for mom only, fun classes for mom and baby too. Today I did a buggy fitness class thinking it would be easy and OH MY GOD I am seriously out of shape. They had us running with our strollers and doing all sorts of crazy stuff. I will be so sore tomorrow. Then we did a baby signing class - also so fun.
At 18 weeks, Owen now weighs 16 pounds 6 ounces, hanging out just under the 75th percentile. And I'm happy to report that mom has finally started working on losing weight and lost 4 pounds last week.
Anyway - baby is whining and moaning right now so have to run! x

Guess what this 4 month old did?

Owen is 4 months old today!!!! Here's his 4 month glamour shot:And, guess what he did mere seconds after this shot was taken? HE ROLLED OVER! Yay. I took the pillow away and he pushed himself way up on his hands, and then I think he really just lost his balance and more fell over than rolled. Still, he ended up on his back.

As hard a day was yesterday, today was really good. He has that cold still but slept better last night (as did Mom - Dad let me go to bed at 9:30 while he fed and put Owen to bed) and has been in a pretty good mood all day. Thank god!
Ok - gotta go feed the little cutie! x

Baby having a cold = not fun.

First, sorry for my lack of posts! I'm not going to offer any excuses.

So baby has his first cold, and let me tell you, it's not really that fun. Sneezy, snotty, phlegmy, coughing, etc. Last night he was up five times between when we put him down at 10pm and got him up for the day at 9am. Also, that whole "he's sleeping 11 hours a night" thing is totally over.... he has done it once since we got back to the UK but generally has been waking up twice during the night. Not sure what happened, but I guess it really was too good to be true!

Today we went on a 2 hour walk to try to stop the screaming. It's hard to explain to baby what to do with the phlegm (spell??) and that he'll feel better soon. He was good for the walk - although only slept for 30 minutes of it - but the SECOND we got back in the house he started crying again. I go back and forth between feeling so bad for him and feeling so bad for myself.

Oh, and as of last Tuesday he weighs 15 pounds 10 ounces. Good boy! Tomorrow Owen is 4 months old - I can't believe it. I'll do my best to take some cute pics to put up on the blog. x
