Call me cheesy but sometimes I play this song for Bayer, he loves to be sang/sung to.

2 months old already!




Little Bay Bay is getting so old already. He went to his 2 month appointment and he's still a big kid. Bayer is still an awesome sleeper and an even better eater. We sleep in till about 9 every morning and it's so much fun. I'm sad because he's so smiley when he wakes up in the morning and Brandon is already at class usually. He's starting to space out his feedings a little more which is really nice for moi. We can go more places with confidence knowing he won't get upset for lack of food (constantly). He's shooting out of all of his clothes which is fun/exhausting to keep up with.

He had his shots two days ago and was a champ for the most part. He didn't cry at all on the first pinch, the second he cried for a couple seconds. He wasn't really fussy, he just slept a lot! It freaked me out but he's alive i guess.

Bayer now recognizes faces and has "coo-ing" conversations with you. He's a doll and we love him so stinkin' much it's almost criminal!

Head: 95%
Weight: 95%
Height: 125% (an average 5 month old)

As for the parents of this household, we've been wor
king out more! A lot more! Brandon has been getting together with Mike, Lance and Kempton. While I've been running a lot more and trying to do crunches (which is almost impossible). We've also been watching what we eat. We've discovered a new love for:

Boca Burgers. 100 calories, with 30% of your daily protein!

Hummus

Tzatziki Sauce

We just got back from Portland, Oregon last night. We were there from Sunday to Sunday and it was such a blast. I can't describe how fun it was to see all my brothers and sisters (in laws included) and their children! They were 16 grandchildren and 13 adults!

We stayed at my sister in laws parents house at Black Butte Ranch which is located in central Oregon. The drive up there was beautiful, it looked like a post card. At the ranch, we rode bikes, swam, walked, played tennis, baseball, hiked, cooked, laughed, played games, golfed, had photo shoots, etc. It was really nice to kick back for a whole week, especially for me, I was able to go play tennis twice this past week! Once without Bayer, although the baby and I missed each other! I also got to go on a bike ride without the babe. I'm proud of myself.

We stayed in two different cabins, which were both really nice. It was so nice and generous of my parents to get us all together and plan this beautiful vacation.

First captured smile!




I love this little tyke so much. I didn't think I could be happier when I married Brandon, but Bayer makes "my heart want to explode" (-Ali from Bachelorette) everyday!

Bayer is such a joy to be around. Some things about him I want to remember are:

-He scrunches his forehead a lot, very inquisitive.
-He doesn't like to wake up, he makes the cutest pouty face
-He's an excellent nurser no matter the time of the day
-He HATES being cold
-He makes the cutest coo's!
-He is always hot
