Three Months

Monday, April 22, 2013
I cannot believe this little cutie is three months old already!  I say it every month, but he is growing so fast.  I am afraid to look away from him; I might miss something.  Needless to say, it has been a while since I have gotten anything done around the house.  Oh well, he is only this age once, right?


























I had a hard time picking just a few pictures to post this month.  The faces he makes are priceless!


How could you not love that sweet little face?

We didn't see the doctor this month, so I'm not quite sure what he weighs.  I tried to measure him last week, and based on my amateur measuring skills, it looks like he has grown another inch and is about 24 3/4" long.  No wonder his pants are turning into high waters...time to move up a size!



We are going to be in trouble when Cullen starts moving.  He is already trying to sit up all the time.  He should have some pretty awesome baby abs with all the sit-ups he attempts these days.  Most of the time, he will fuss if you lay him down; he wants to sit up and look at everything!  (Including the TV.  I cannot tell you how many times this weekend I caught him sitting in someone's lap starring at the television.  I can't believe I'm having to fuss at him already!)

A few weeks ago, Cullen rolled over from his back to his stomach.  He hasn't done it since, but I'm sure we are close to him rolling over more often.  He tries to flip over every time he's on his tummy, but hasn't quite figured it out just yet.


If this little ball of fun isn't asleep he is staring at or talking to something.  He loves to look at patterns, especially whatever is on your shirt and the frame wall in our den.  And he is fascinated by his feet!  If they are anywhere near his line of sight, he stares at them with a quizzical look as if he's thinking, "what are you, and what do you do?"  He was wearing footie pajamas one night and started talking to the monkeys on his feet.  I'm telling you, this kid will talk to anything: you, his toys, his feet, the couch.  Anything he can look at is worth talking to.  I love listening to all of his 'ah-goos' and almost giggles.  

This past week, Cullen has started paying more attention to our puppy, Macey.  He looks at her like she is the best toy ever and he can't wait to get his hands on her.  Macey on the other hand, is not quite as interested as she used to be.  With his constantly moving arms and legs, she gets hit and kicked fairly often...I don't think she's a fan.  I can't wait to see how they react as he gets older.

I feel so blessed to get to be the mother of this wonderful little boy!





Cullen's First Easter

Tuesday, April 16, 2013
I just wanted to share a few pictures of Cullen's first Easter.  

The Easter Bunny brought Cullen a stuffed bunnySophie Giraffe and one of her friends, an Easter bib, and The Velveteen Rabbit.  As you can see, he was trilled.

























His adorable Easter outfit was a pink oxford shirt, chinos, a seersucker blazer, and the tiniest bowtie ever.  He looked pretty darn cute.






































Cullen and his Uncle Travis matched.  Look at these handsome men!






































We were able to sneak in a family photo once the sun came out.  Cullen did not want to cooperate.  I think he was ready to get out of those clothes.






































After lunch, Cullen 'found' his first Easter egg with a dollar in it. 

























After a busy day, Cullen did some snuggling with his Uncle.  Look at that face!  Melts my heart!


Two Months

So, I'm only about a month late in writing this post, but I'm going to blame it on the craziness being a new mom.  (I can still use that excuse for a little while, right?!)  I mean, I still haven't gotten all of the thank you notes and birth announcements mailed.  I promise...they are coming!

Anyway, another month has flown by!  Like I said last month, I feel like Cullen changes every day.  I am afraid to blink; I might miss something.

At Cullen's two month well check, he weighed 11 pounds 6.5 ounces and was 23.8 inches long.  This kid is long and skinny...not quite the chunk we expected, but he is as healthy as can be.






































We are truly blessed to have such a healthy and happy baby.  (Corey warns me not to tell people how great he is...apparently this is not the norm.)  He almost never cries or fusses and is a great sleeper!  A little before the two month mark, Cullen started sleeping 6 - 7 hours at night and has been doing so ever since.  He is a little night owl and goes to sleep between 11 and 12 at night and sleeps until 6 or so in the morning.  It is wonderful!  Naps are a totally different story though.  Cullen is a cat-napper.  He likes to sleep for 15 to 30 minutes and then is up and ready to play again.  Occasionally he will sneak in a longer nap in the mornings, but its almost like he is afraid he will miss something if he sleeps too long.  As long as he is happy though, we are just going to let him do his thing.  

Speaking of happy, this little boy loves to smile and laugh!  If he is awake, you can probably get him talking and laughing.  Our days are now filled with 'ah-goos', giggles, and the biggest smiles ever.  My cheeks hurt most days from smiling so much!


Corey and I feel so blessed to be the parents of such a wonderful little boy.  I love watching him grow and learn new things every day.  He is a little ball of fun and he keeps everyone entertained.  I cannot believe how much personality such a little person can have.  I am excited to see what he will do next!
