2 months

Brantley turned 2 months old on May 8th. Time is already flying by so quickly! We went in for his 2 month appointment last Thursday. He weighed in at 9 lb. 14 oz and was 23 in long!! :) We are both so happy that he is finally starting to pack on the weight! He is still long and skinny like his daddy though. His weight is in between the 10th and 20th percentile and his length is right at the 50th percentile. He also had to get four vaccinations, which he did great at! The nurse seemed to be impressed...way to go B! :) His doctor was happy with his progress and health so we just have to go back at 4 months.

Right now, I have been back at work since April 25 and he has been staying with my friend Lindsay. He's been doing great on a schedule. He eats about every 3 hours during the day and will go for about 4-5 hours during the night between feedings. He takes about 4 naps a day and is becoming more and more alert and playful. He is working so hard on holding up his head. It's so cute when he bobbles around! :) He has started to smile and smirk at Mike and I when we interact with him. I'm just counting down the days till summer so that I can spend all day with him again! :)

He is continuing to grow...I took him for a weight check today at the hospital and he has finally passed the 10 lb mark. He weighed in at 10 lb, 1.5 oz! Keep it up Brantley! :)

Happy 1st Mother's Day!

I had a great 1st Mother's Day. Mike, Brantley and I went to church and then to lunch at my favorite restaurant, California Dreaming! So yummy! :) Then we just hung out around the house the rest of the day. It was so nice to be with my little family. Oh, and I loved my cards from the best hubby and son in the world! :) I love being a mommy!

One month pictures...a little late!

Okay, so I'm a little slack on updating my blog but here are his one month pictures with his monthly stickers that I bought from

He turned one month on April 8, 2011. At his appointment he weighed 7 lb, 15 oz and was 22.5 inches long. This was when he was having trouble gaining back his weight but he finally got back up to birth weight when he was 6 weeks old. :)
