Mom and Baby Photo Shoot

One of the lovely ladies from my Parent/Baby group is an amateur photographer. She volunteered to meet a group of new moms today and take photos of us with our babies. This was perfect timing since I am usually the one behind the camera and I had recently told J that there aren't any pics of me with LWK and time is flying! Most of the pics up until today have me looking haggard. These are great!

And a quick reminder that my child does know how to smile, just not when there is an expensive camera involved. This smile was produced with the help of "The Itsy Bitsy Spider."

2+ Month Check Up

LWK had his 2 month check up this week (even though he will be 3 months old next week!). He took the opportunity to be super flirty with the nurse and his Doctor. All his milestones are being met and he is right on track for his growth! The current stats are:

Height: 23.5 inches
Weight: 12lbs 9oz
Head Circumference: 15.4 inches

He had his vaccinations and was okay with the first poke, but not the second and third! He ended up sleeping for most of the day and being a little fussy. Hopefully we have resolved the crazy spit-up sessions with thickening his formula and milk with a bit of Rice Cereal and adding a bit of baby Zantac to his day!

Father's Day

Sunday was J's first Father's Day! I couldn't top his brunch at Salish for Mother's Day, but we went to Pomegranate instead. We did get Daddy a Darth Vader shirt that says "Who's Your Daddy" and a "Daddy and Me" picture frame for work. We went to Grandma and Grandpa's house for a Father's Day dinner and to play with Aunt J and cousin J.

Of course we took time to play with Daddy!

LWK was able to wear all his "Daddy" outfits in one day since he was having spit-up issues. We even had to break out the "Team Grandpa" PJ's when we ran out of Daddy stuff. It wasn't until we put in him into plain jammies did he stop the spit-up fest! At least we got a good photo op with Grandpa!

Meeting D&J!

LWK finally got to meet his Guncles when they came to visit for the weekend from Amsterdam!
LWK hit it off with D right away! Mom barely made it though the door before D and his family got LWK in their arms!

In a mutual admiration session with J.

Brunch at Pomegranate!

Thank you for the sweet plane and the "Little Dutch Boy" shirt! We can't wait to see you again in August!

First Vacation

We took our first vacation as a little family at the beginning of June. The destination was Iowa to visit family. Flying with an 8 week old made Mommy a little (okay, a lot) stressed. Obviously, LWK was just fine. He was snuggled up to Mommy in his Moby and slept for the entire flight!

He watched baseball with Great Uncle Clifford and cuddling with Great Aunt Lois.

The other Great Aunts and Uncles couldn't wait to love on him either!

It was so nice to introduce LWK to his Iowa relatives, it is always hard to leave!
