2 1/2 months old!

And since I haven't updated on Vinny in like 2 months... or pretty much since his birth ::hides in corner:: I have a picture overload.  To say the least.

I never imagined how much work it would be to have 2 kiddos.  I'm constantly nursing or changing Vincent, making sure Gianna is getting attention, food, potty trips, etc... or all of the above at once.

When I had Gianna I always fed her in our comfy rocker in her QUIET nursery.  This time having a newborn is not the tough part... it's keeping up with a 3 year old at the same time!  I've learned to nurse Vinny while cleaning up toys, making lunch, or taking Gianna potty.  Takes serious talent, people ;)

Now that Vincent is 11 weeks (3 months in a couple weeks... ahh!) we've got a good schedule down, and having 2 kids isn't too bad.  We've really adjusted to our family of 4 and things are going great!

Some Mrs. F news... this was the easiest recovery I could have ever imagined.  And I'm 1 lb away from my pre pregnancy weight thanks again to Weight Watchers.  Woot :)  I've been back at the gym since a little after 4 weeks pp and feeling good!

Here are some stats on little Vince:

  • Gianna was a good nurser when she was a newborn, but Vinny was even better.  This kid latched on right after birth & has been a pro ever since!  I've only been pumping 2-3 times a week so I have a stash in the freezer "just in case."
  • 12 lbs 14 oz - 77%  (at 2 month appt)  He is way bigger than Gianna was at this age!
  • 23 in - 53%  (at 2 month appt)
  • Growing out of 0-3 month clothes.  Honestly he'll probably only fit in them for 2 more weeks.  Gianna fit in her 0-3's until she was about 4 months!
  • Coos & smiles all the time while he's awake unless he's eating.  Such a happy boy I have!
  • Awesome with tummy time.  He's this close to rolling over.
  • Goes to bed around 10pm and has been sleeping consistently for at least 6-8 hours straight.  He'll eat then sleep for another 3-4 hours!  This just started 2 weeks ago (he had been waking up every 2 hours to eat every single night since birth so hopefully he keeps it up) ::knocks on wood::

  3. Beautiful family. But I am so jealous of your 2.5 month old that sleeps 6-8 hours straight at night. That didn't happen for me until my guy was almost 9 months old. And you look amazing and to be pretty much back to your pre-preggers weight, good job!

    Vinny is lookin like a little chubster in his 2 month pic too! and still looking just like his big sis ...who by the way is too cute and such a clown in front of the camera! You need to seriously give me some tips on getting pics of kids....mine run away from the camera on purpose and i can only get pics by hiding behind a corner and bustin out the zoom lens...LOL

  8. Oh my goodness! I just stumbled across your blog and I've been glued to the screen reading.
