Landon Tyler – 8 months

7.26.15_8month

Memories at 8 months:

Weight: You are 21 lbs. and growing like crazy.

Length: We will say 28 inches and check in at your 9 month appt.

Hair: Your hair is getting so long on top and still looks like a dirty blond to me.  Photos seem like your hair is pretty dark.  Your bald spot on back has filled in, so you are on your way for some thickness.

Eyes: Blue!

Clothes: In 9 month tops and pj’s…but 12 mos is on the horizon.  Still fit in 6 mos shorts and wearing 9 mos too, but they gap a little bit on you.

Diapers: Still size 3 and after trying several options, we are sticking with the size 4 overnights for now.

Sleeping: You quit sleeping through the night on July 5th, but you’ve had 3 good nights!  Sickness really threw you and we are waiting for our healthy boy to sleep through the night.  Your naps at school are 40 min 3x a day.  You usually take a 5 PM nap and we’ve moved your bedtime to 8:30-9.  This has been working really well.

Likes: You love to stand!  You’ve started the army crawl and with enough energy you can get anywhere you want.  You have started to remember things…when Mickey comes on you flash those dimples with a big smile.  Mom and Dad just watch you…so fun!  You love to play with books and still have a fascination with banging all your toys.  Your toys with music make you so happy and you will bounce for days.

Dislikes: Sickness!  We have been at the dr this month for hand/foot/mouth and a double ear infection.  We want all these to stay away!

Eating: Same schedule as last month.  Working to incorporate more in your meals so that we have a good update at your 9 month.Still on 6 oz. formula.  We are working on deleting one bottle a day and taking on 3 “meals”.  You are getting 22 oz a day between 4 bottles, oatmeal/fruit for breakfast, veggies at lunch, and another oatmeal/fruit dinner.   You are becoming a pro at your snacks.  You still have your moments where you bite your fingers (and get very upset!) but overall doing really well.

Milestones: Army crawling!  You are mobile.  You have been jabbering away and sometimes we think we hear “mom”, but you have no idea what you are saying.  Still have 6 teeth, so no new ones this month.  You had two big extended family weekends.  We celebrated your great-grandma B Mullink’s birthday and you met great aunts/uncles, and cousins that you hadn’t met yet.  You spent another weekend at the Schwada family reunion spending time with our Jones family and all the Schwada family.

Mom’s favorites: Your sense of humor is fantastic.  Your teachers comment on how funny you are and you laugh with them.  They also told us that they think you are a bully and have a foot fetish…oh my.  You laughed at another baby being fussy and tried to eat some of the other babies toes.  Gross but funny!  I also love that you look for me and your dad in a room where you don’t recognize anyone.  Mom and Dad are your favorites for cuddling when you don’t feel well.  I LOVE rocking you to sleep…it is my favorite time for just the two of us each night or naps on the weekends (but I do share with Dad too when he is home!).

Baby items we can’t live without: Baby cheese puffs and our overnight diapers (life savers)

Month 8 is another busy month for you with lots of family weekends.  Aunt Erin and Uncle Bill are babysitting you while mom and dad go to a wedding.  You will be baptized this month and celebrating Aunt Erin and Aunt Kristin’s birthdays.  We are also planning a weekend to Decatur to help Erin with wedding plans.  You will be on the go…like always!  We love you so much and treasure each precious day with you!

More pics coming soon….

Landon Tyler – Seven Months

6.26.15_7month

Memories at 7 months:

Weight: You are every bit of 20 lbs.  (Mom was wayyy off last month!)  At your 6 month well baby visit on June 5th you were 19 lbs.  You are in the 76th percentile for weight.  We will take it.

Length: Guessing 27 inches again this month.  You were 26 inches at your dr appt.  Only the 17th percentile for height.  (We aren’t surprised!)

Hair: Your hair is continuing to grow quickly and is looking like a dirty blonde.  We are hoping it continues to thicken!

Eyes: Very blue….and to die for.  You get so many compliments on your eyes…and you know how to use them.

Clothes: We are moving on up to 9 month pj’s and onesies.  Some of your polos are getting short in 6 mos, but we are trying to wear them as much as possible.  Mom broke the bank at Carter’s buying all the clearance so that you are set for 9 mos.  Shorts are still in 6 mos and some 3-6 mos.  The 9 month shorts gap at the waist and are wayyy too long.

Diapers: Size 3 and we’ve started Size 4 overnights to help in the sleep department.

Sleeping: You have had your moments.  You are working on your 4 top teeth (and maybe two more), so the sleep was interrupted a bit by those little boogers.  We also found that you were wet in the front from rolling onto your stomach (hence the diaper note above).  The larger diapers are working wonders!  We are continuing to hope for a “sleep through the night baby” into month 7.  Naps are a different story.  Your teachers think you like QUIET because you were on your own one Friday at school and took a two hour nap.  (You never do this…)  Most of your naps are 30-40 min 2-3 times a day.

Likes: You love when someone says “boo” to you.  You get a little scared and then laugh.  You also love banging all of your toys on the wood floors to make loud noises.  You will do it for days.  You continue to love baths.  You will be so tired/cranky and your bath soothes you.  You still LOVE fruit.  You have had cantaloupe this month and you scarf it down.  You loved the pool on vacation!  You still love your outdoor swing and watching TV.

Dislikes: Still hate getting your nose cleaned out and being tired/hungry.  You are pretty “go with the flow” so we think you are pretty easy to please!

Eating: Still on 6 oz. formula.  We are working on deleting one bottle a day and taking on 3 “meals”.  You are getting 22 oz a day between 4 bottles, oatmeal/fruit for breakfast, veggies at lunch, and another oatmeal/fruit dinner.   We also started snacks to work on picking up the food and feeding yourself.  We have some work to do, but we know we started early so we will get there.

Milestones: Sitting up!  You look so big.  You can get on your stomach and scoot in a circle, but can’t quite figure out crawling yet.  We know it will happen very soon!  You have 6 teeth and at least 2 more on the way.  You played hide and seek with a blanket this month and made mom’s day!  You had your first ear infection…boo!  Mom kept you home for a day of snuggling.  You also went on a vacation to the Lake of the Ozarks.  It included lots of time with your cousin Brynzlee, first swimming, and first boat ride.  You had a blast!  You even fell asleep in the pool one night.  We celebrated Daddy’s first Father’s Day this month.  You are such a gift to him (and mom too)!

Mom’s favorites: You react to everything mom/dad do now.  It is so fun to talk to you and get a reaction.  We are trying really hard for your first words to be “mama/dada”.  So far you just smile and laugh.  Stinker!  I hate to be away from you – especially on the weekends.  I soak up every moment I can with you because it seems like it isn’t enough.

Baby items we can’t live without: We continue to love the bouncer, outdoor swing, and all of the floor toys.

Month 7 is a big month for you.  You will be moving into your new classroom at school, your first 4th of July, and first Schwada reunion.  Can’t wait to see all the progress you make this month.  We love you to the moon, little man.

Landon Tyler – Six Months

DSC_0886

Memories from six months:

Weight: We will guess 16 lbs.  Your dr appt is in one week, so we will see if we are correct.

Length: Guessing 27 inches.

Hair: Your hair has changed so much this month.  It is starting to really grow and get dark.  You still have a bald spot in the back, but we are hoping that fills in quickly.

Eyes: Still blue!

Clothes: Still in 6 mos sleepers and onesies.  Your 6 mos pants are still a bit too long.  3-6 mos clothes are still fitting too, but we bought some 6-9 mos this weekend for school extra outfits.  You are definitely getting longer!  We think it is all in your torso and not your legs….much to your dad’s dismay.

Diapers: Moved up to size 3!

Sleeping: You slept through the night on Mother’s Day (May 10th) and have had several good nights since then.  We hope you stay this way…mom and dad are loving the zzzz’s!

Likes: We started giving you vegetables and also put a strawberry in your gummy contraption and you ate it all up.  When your strawberries are gone, you throw a fit!  You love your bottles and your teachers say that you think every bottle at school is yours.    We got you an outdoor swing and a new bouncer that you love.  The swing makes you fall asleep every time you get in it.  Anything with music makes you smile.  You love the song “Mr Sun, Sun Mister Golden Sun” and you will quiet down and smile when you hear it.  The only place that doesn’t work is in the car…youtube Mickey Mouse Club has come to our rescue more than once on our phones or the ipad.  Daycare also says you love your Orajel…we think that is so funny!  You love books and will laugh when your dad turns the pages.

Dislikes: getting stuck on your tummy in bed after you roll, anyone touching your nose

Eating: We have just moved you up to 6 oz – all formula.   We are keeping the rice cereal – and just started your first foods.  Since last week, you have had peas, green beans, squash, sweet potatoes, and carrots.  You are loving them all.

Milestones: Complete rolling.  We thought you were so close and found out that you had been doing it in daycare before we saw you.  We officially saw your first tumbles on May 11th.  Yesterday you started blowing bubbles.  We thought your bibs were soaked before, but this is a whole new ball game.

Mom’s favorites: Your laugh and smile are still my favorites.  I will do just about anything to see them.  You are such an easy-going baby (and I hope you stay that way!), which comes from your dad.  You went to the Indianapolis zoo over Memorial Day weekend in the early afternoon and you just rode around in your stroller and took a nap when you got tired.  I love that you can be on-the-go!

Baby items we can’t live without: We are big fans of the bouncer and the baby swing.

Month 6 is officially summer!  We can’t wait to do all the fun things with you outdoors – including the pool.  We have a vacation coming up with your cousin, Brynzlee, who loves to help babysit you!  We absolutely adore you, Landon.  Can’t wait to see how much you change this month.

More pics coming soon….

 

Stay crazy, friends.

Landon Tyler – Five months

4.26.15_5 month

Memories from five months:

Weight: Mom was very close on the 4 month guess.  You weighed 13 lb. 15 oz, so we will guess that you are around 15 lb this month.

Length: Height at 4 mos appt was 25 inches  .  I am guessing you have grown another inch, so we will go with 26.

Hair: Your hair is starting to grow in and is very thin, a little dark, and soft fine baby hair.  Keep growing!

DSC_0805

Eyes: Still blue!

Clothes: In a solid 6 mos in sleepers.  6 mos pants are a little too long and 6 mos shorts are a little too big.  What are we going to do with you?!?  3-6 mos fits pretty well.  Since you have a daily clothes change at daycare (due to accidents), mom is constantly trying to find clothes to send that fit and are weather appropriate.

Diapers: Squeezing in size 2.  We will be movin on up next month.

DSC_0799

Sleeping: Oh my good lord.  It is a good thing we want to keep you….you have kept mom and dad awake many nights this month.  We blame the two little teeth in your mouth and a growth spurt.  Please oh please work with us this month….we will give you an early allowance if you sleep through the night..ha!

Likes: All of your likes are the same as last month.  His dad’s funny voices, drooling, anything with music, everything in his mouth, bath time, and TOYS.  You are also enjoying being propped up or standing up (with assistance).  You have had your fill of tummy time, but we continue to work with you.

Dislikes: angry gums, being tired or hungry

DSC_0804

Eating: We are sticking with 5 oz, while still supplementing.  You have also started rice cereal 2 times a day.  (It isn’t helping the sleep department – even though the critics say it would.)

Milestones: Laughing.  We will do anything possible to hear that giggle.  You can roll from tummy to back, but not easily.  It takes a lot of convincing.  The bottom two teeth have poked through. One started on Easter (4/5) and the other started a week later (4/13)  You have started holding your bottles and we have moved the straps up in your carseat.

DSC_0795

Mom’s favorites: Your personality shines.  I adore when I laugh at you and then you laugh back flashing that gummy smile.  Every weekend is just precious spending time with you and I love to soak up every moment.

Baby items we can’t live without: Anything that you can put in your mouth….pretty much a lifesaver.

Month 5 is going to be so much fun.  We have lots of family events planned and dad has his 2nd week of vacation, so we will have some good time at home together.  Can’t wait!  We adore you, Landon and we pray that you keep up those smiles forever.

Landon Tyler – Four Months

3.26.15_4month

Memories from four months:

Weight: My best guess is 14 lbs.  We will update after our dr appt this week.

Length: Another guess….23 inches.  We will update after our dr appt this week.

Hair: Hair is starting to turn a little blonde.  We would love for him to grow more!

Eyes: Crossing our fingers tightly they stay blue…

DSC_0725

Clothes: Still hanging on to some 3 mos but the sleeves are starting to be too short.  His poor short legs could stay in 3 mos longer, so we may be working with some mixed options for awhile.  I feel so silly on clothing and sometimes it makes me a little crazy to make sure he wears everything once.  His 6 mos clothing is a mix of winter and a few short sleeves, so we will be figuring out what he is missing once it gets a little warmer.

Diapers: Size 2

Sleeping: Baby steps forward and then leaps back…  Landon takes 3-4 naps a day at school.  Our sweet guy likes to trick us by sleeping through the night and then waking up all.the.time.  He is fairly consistently waking up once a night to eat.  We tried to outsmart him and feed him more before bed…it doesn’t work.  This past week has been a bit different.  He has been coming home after school and falls asleep between 5-7PM and doesn’t wake up until 10PM or 2 AM.  I have a (groan) feeling we will have a rough 18 week mark with lots of feeding.   We think we are at the point of graduating from swaddling too.  This is great and makes me sad all at the same time.  Let’s hope for some better nights through the 4 mos mark!

Likes: His dad’s funny voices, drooling, anything with music, everything in his mouth, bath time, and TOYS.  He has really started to grab on to his rings, toys on the swing, and loves his little caterpillar rattle.

Dislikes: being sleepy, waking up too soon from a nap (tired = meltdown), slowing down/stopping in the car

Eating: Daycare says he is happiest with 5 oz each feeding at school, so we are continuing to supplement with 3 feedings a day there.  He gets 3-4 feedings at home a day outside of school.  We are hopeful that number can move to 3 – which means he is sleeping through the night!

DSC_0719

Milestones: Smiling for days.  We adore him reacting to us.  He is starting to jabber away and his high pitched squeaks are really sweet.  He is starting to laugh, but isn’t consistent.  We are hoping for lots of laughs this month since it is so addicting!  He has really started to reach for toys and play with them.  He is also doing well sitting up in the bumbo.  We think he is getting a tooth, but it is one of his side teeth so we call him Dracula.  We have conquered 4 weeks of daycare/back to work and it is going well.

Mom’s favorites: Ummm…everything.  It’s so hard to choose because he is interacting now and so much fun to hang out with.  My favorite this month has been watching him and T together.  They are two peas in a pod – and look like twins – so it is fun to watch them have the same expressions.

DSC_0720

Baby items we can’t live without: Burp cloths…in every room.  This boy is starting to spit up more and we are using and washing them often.  We have also been using the bibs more, as this sweet boy is a slobbering mess.  We have also used the stroller more each weekend and he is loving our walks.

We are so excited to see what month four brings for our sweet boy!  We have our first Easter celebrations with the Roe and Schwada family and we are also planning a little family getaway to celebrate my birthday.  We love you, Landon!

March…and it’s over

Can we hit rewind?

March has been filled with many things, none of which have documented photos….unless you count the 536,738 pics I post of my kid every second on social media.  Here is what we have been up to….

  • Surviving.  Whew…..  We are starting to figure out this working mom routine and I’m quite proud of our little family.  We may have house projects hanging over our head, but we’ve chosen to ignore them and just figure out “us” and this new world we live in.
  • Landon is doing well at school/daycare and seems to really like it.  His 4 month (insert high fives and tears simultaneously) post should be up this week.
  • Looking forward to every weekend.  We have stayed home and spent a lot of time as our family of 3.  We can’t get enough.  Monday-Friday is for the birds.
  • Getting some miles on the stroller.  Landon is doing well on our family weekend walks….except that one time that I had a great idea not to use the infant seat on a 4 mile walk.  Let’s just say his “facing front” stroller rides will be kept short and our backs and arms will thank us.
  • I attended one of my co-worker’s bridal showers.  Looking forward to her wedding (and a date night) in May!
  • Watching my husband be a dad.  There really isn’t anything I would rather do.  Since day one, he has been amazing and from the day I have been back to work he has done more of the “getting up at night”.  He is a blessing and love him more every day.  Landon adores him too and I have to laugh at their twin expressions constantly.
  • My mom and I went with my sister to look for a wedding dress and she found THE ONE!  So so excited and wish I could share a photo, but we will have to patiently wait until November for the big reveal.  She looks amazing….that is your only teaser.

Cheers to a great month.  So excited for spring and getting Landon outside!

Stay crazy, friends.

Landon Tyler – Three Months

2.26.15_3month

Memories from three months:

Weight: He didn’t weigh at the dr this month.  I am guessing he is 12-13 lb.

Length: I could be wrong, but I don’t think he has grown much in length.  We will keep it at 21 1/2 and check at his appt in March.

Hair: Hair is still dark and starting to get a little fuzzy.  The cradle cap is still sticking around.  Hoping for that to end soon!

Eyes: Still not 100% sure.  I’m going to stick with blue.

Clothes: 3 mos and 3-6 mos.  My sister came over and washed all of his 6-9 mos clothes to get them ready.  He should be in them very soon!

Diapers: Size 2.  Movin’ on up.

Sleeping: We were doing so well with 6 hr spans and then 12 weeks hit.  He started waking up to eat twice a night like clockwork.  This conveniently was the same week mom returned to work.  Good times.  Like magic, he slept through the night on the eve of his 3 mos!!  We are hoping that continues.

Likes: To be held all.the.time, his bouncy seat and toys that light up/have music, watching TV (the proper moms will probably cringe)

Dislikes: Stopping eating to burp, cleaning his face in any way, slowing down/stopping in the car

Eating: Nursing is still going well, but we have had to figure out a new routine with daycare.  They just requested that he get 4 oz each feeding, so we are supplementing.  We will see how this goes!

Milestones: He is still my smiley baby.  We adore his smiles and can’t wait for them every day.  He has started reaching more for his toys in the bouncy or on the floor.  He is doing really well with his crib at night and we are hoping he starts to do well for naps this month (maybe daycare will train him!).  He started daycare on 2.23.15, after staying a partial week at home with Tyler.  The first day was a little rough, but he is learning the routine and doing well.

Mom’s favorites: This week I have picked him up at daycare.  As soon as he hears my voice, he will turn his head and smile.  It melts me every day.  His eyelashes are starting to grow and thicken.  Love them!

Baby items we can’t live without: The bouncy seat.  It has been a lifesaver this week with crazy work mornings and in the evening when dinner is being prepped.

DSC_0671We can’t believe how much our little guy is changing.  All of the daycare staff comment on how “tiny” he is, but we think he is big!  We can’t imagine life without him….our sweet boy!

My TOP maternity leave lessons….

Well, hello there abandoned blog.  I’m back today with the list I’ve had in my head for awhile and wanted to look back and remember.

So, without further adieu….my TOP lessons learned on maternity leave…

1. One week(ish) of your 12 weeks is spent in the hospital.  This seems crazy, but also necessary to recover from surgery and get the hang of your newborn.  Before delivering Landon, I never really thought that I would be seeing a week vanish before my eyes before we had him home.

2. Driving home from the hospital will be one of the most surreal experiences of your life.  “YES, we’re going home…BUT we’re bringing another human home with us.”  I will always cherish that ride home.  We were finally a family of three outside of the hospital and so ready to spend time on the couch together.

3. You will be so thankful for your husband and he will drive you batshit crazy all in the same 30 seconds.  Ultimately, the thankfulness prevails…thank goodness.

4. I’ve never run a marathon, but I imagine that nursing goes along with the same concepts.  Once you have the hang of it, it has been WEEKS and you are EXHAUSTED but the victory will be one of the proudest times of your life.

5. All of the baby gear that you didn’t want in your house will somehow end up there….and it will save your ever-loving mind on those days when you want to curl up in a ball and cry.

6. All of those pounds that you wished away will come off, but the after effects are much different than your “before body”.  Yoga pants are your friend.

7. Taking a shower will be like an obstacle course and when you visit family, you will be so excited to take a shower for as long as you want while they spoil your little guy.

8. You will get teased endlessly for your strategic OCD placement of pacifiers throughout your house, but you will be thanked when you know where one is at 2 AM while sleep walking.

9. The texts/visits/phone calls from family and friends of love and encouragement mean the world to you from before your little guy was born straight though all the ups and downs of leave.  I am vowing to remember this for my family and friends.

10.  It will be the dumbest idea you’ve ever had to not plan the birth of your newborn around your husband’s busy season, but you will get through it…..even if it means crying in the Starbucks drive-thru on Christmas Eve.

11.  Those that bring you meals….they are saints.

12. The last day of maternity leave is so bitter sweet.  You will cry and hold your little guy more than you should – even through naps, but it will be your last cherished memories of that time.

We are all back to work at this point…and sleepy.  Landon is enjoying his first full week of daycare and I’m hoping they sleep train him like a soldier.  ha!

Stay crazy, friends.

Landon Tyler – Two Months

Another month has come and our little guy is doing well.  This month was filled with lots of rest and staying home.  We all enjoyed it!  Landon also had his first cold and his first round of shots.  As nervous as we were for the shots, he was fine after a bottle.  Whew!  Not looking forward to the next round.

1.26.15_2months

Memories from two months:

Weight: At his two month checkup this week he weighed in at a whopping 10 lb. 2 oz, but his height is the exact same as birth.

Length: 21 1/2 in.  Poor short little buddy.  I can’t say I’m shocked he is in the 5th percentile for height.  Welcome to our world.

Hair: Hair is still dark and continuing to grow.  He has a small cradle cap issue that we are hoping clears up soon!

Eyes: I’m still hopeful they stay blue.  Tyler thinks they are changing.  We will see!

Clothes: All of a sudden this month, the newborns were a bit tight and the sleeves were too short.  Why is it so hard to pack them up???  He is wearing 0-3 and 3 months.  The 3 month pants are still a bit long.

Diapers: Size 1.

Sleeping: Sleeping has taken on a whole new meaning this month.  We started out pretty good and then hit a slump with a head cold.  We have been up 2-3 times a night.  The worst night, we were up every two hours.  Mom and Dad are tired!!  We are hoping we can start a better routine soon and get back to the 4-5 hour nights at minimum. Last night, we kept him up until 10 and he went for 6 hours.  Bless him.

Likes: These are all the same from last month. Being held all.the.time, being snuggled up in blankets, being held upright with his head tucked under your chin, and his dad’s professional swaddle.  A few new items…. The Moby.  My in-laws gifted me with it at Christmas and we all love it!  We are also using the Lullaby Pandora station and little man will quiet down with  some music.

Dislikes: Wet/dirty diapers, stopping feeding to burp, and bright lights.

Eating: We had a feeding frenzy at 6 weeks where it seemed he was eating every hour, but otherwise he will go 2.5-3 hours and usually a little longer at night.

Milestones: Smiling. He has melted our hearts.  He will also respond to “ahhhh” with trying to talk.  He will open is mouth really wide and let out a little squeek.  He is also more alert everyday and starting to show his personality.  He is feeding like a champ – nursing and bottles.  We aren’t heating the bottles and he doesn’t mind a bit.  I’m hopeful this will help us to transition to daycare easily.

Mom’s favorites: Of course I love that gummy smile and how he will recognize my voice.  He is the best at snuggling and I savor these moments with him as I know he won’t want to forever.

Baby items we can’t live without: The moby.  It has saved me more than once this month.  I also broke down and got a bouncy seat.  He isn’t in love with it yet, but getting there.  The rock-n-play didn’t allow him to sit up as much as he has wanted to, so we are hoping the bouncy seat does the trick.

We adore our little guy and hope this month goes as slow as possible before maternity leave is over.  We have lots to do to prep him and his supplies for school.

Life in January

Our month of January has been filled with loving on our boy.  The days of “nothing” fly by and I am not jealous of the stay at home moms.  I really don’t know how they do it.  I am doing really well to keep my hair out of a ponytail and get in real clothes.  Who knew a run to the grocery store without your husband could seem so hard?!?  I know I will laugh at myself in a few years with a toddler.  But…with this sweet face…I just can’t resist him.
