Clear Lake

Today we loaded up the kids, met up with Derek's parents, and headed up into the mountains. The weather was a perfect 75 degrees - not too cool but not so hot that it ruled out campfire cooking. We played in the lake, picked wildflowers, roasted hotdogs, fished, and tried making s'mores [the chocolate melted in the sun and Addison was horrified to have 'sticky' on her hands... she is SO my child...] I caught my limit in rainbow trout and [even more importantly] got a little sun...

8 weeks...

Length: 22 1/4 inches 
Weight: 10 lbs 9 oz
Feeding Schedule: Right now he's eating 5 ounces every 3 or 3 1/2 hours. I'm still pumping so he's only taking breast milk - I'm hoping to continue pumping until he's a year (UGH) but I'm already super sick of it. I wish he would nurse but he has no interest in anything but the bottle anymore... sad mama.  
Sleeping Schedule: He keeps teasing us with the idea of sleeping through the night. At least two nights a week he goes down around 9:30 or 10pm (our usual) and sleeps until 4:30 or 5am. Buuuut, every time we think we've got this sleep thing in the bag, he wakes up at 2:30. He's definitely awake more during the day but still takes a pretty long afternoon nap. 
Milestones: First real smiles - he GRINS at his daddy all the time... he makes me work for it more but every time Derek walks into the room this kid lights up. I'm jealous, but it's pretty stinking cute. He also got his first shots today (sad baby)...
Best Moment This Month: Seeing those first smiles
Loves: Snuggling, naps, clean diapers {so he can fill them up}, laying on the bed or the floor and kicking his little legs.
Hates: Car seats, burping, pooping, and, as we discovered last night, he is TERRIFIED of bagpipes. They came on during the movie we were watching and he started bawling. I felt terrible for laughing but it was the cutest thing ever.
What We're Looking Forward To: A full night of sleep :)

Cohen's Little Man Shower

This post is a little late... I'm blaming it on a combination of zero time and the loss of my camera cord. Tori threw an amazing shower - we had yummy treats and punch, a super cute (and tasty) cake, and all of my friends and family.
