I am a 31 year old *Former* Army wife and stay at home mom to our IVF miracles, London and Holden. Join us as we try to navigate life raising two CRAZY boys while learning to enjoy our triumph over infertility. You can not take away my struggle with infertility just because I have had success. We had plans to do a FET with one of our frozen embryos in a few years, but God had other plans. We are currently pregnant with surprise naturally conceived twins. It's going to be a wild ride!
So London is almost 2 months old. WOW! He is now up to 13.2 lbs and 23 inches long. He is still not sleeping in his own bed at night yet but we are getting closer. He will now nap in his bed IF you put him on his stomach. I know babies are supposed to sleep on their backs which is why I only let him sleep on his stomach during the day when I am up and can keep an eye on him. He can pick his head up and turn it from side to side when he is on his stomach so I'm not all that worried about him getting his head stuck face down.
Here are a couple pics of him.
This is an out take of a birthday sign he was holding up. I just happen to catch him making a cute face.
I swear he has a neck!!
Chilling in his chair (yet again)
Here he was at 3 weeks old doing the same thing, its crazy how much they can grow in just 5 short weeks.
Here are a few of London with his cousin Lily
Lastly here is a little video of London doing his FAVORITE thing right now :)
For London's first Easter, we decided to spend the holiday in North Carolina with Mike's mom (AKA: Abuela). I must admit the idea of a 7 hour car trip with a 6 week old and 2 of the dogs (Leia and Abby) did NOT sound like much fun to me. However everything turned out really well. I would love to say that London acted like a perfect little angel for his first Easter, however most of the weekend looked alot like this...
And I am pretty sure he is trying to express his feelings about the weekend in this picture...
I will say though he wasn't bad the entire weekend, which judging by this picture it even surprised him a little...
For some reason London has become extremely clingy recently. He has to be held 24/7 or else he screams so loud that you would think his little world is about to end. If he falls asleep and you try to lay him down he immediately wakes up and screams at you until he is in your arms again. Oh and when I say YOUR arms, I mean MY arms. He is not very fond of anyone but Mommy holding him. I'm not quite sure what is going on with him right now, but I do know it HAS to stop. He won't even sleep in his own bed anymore. I know having him sleep in our bed is not the greatest idea, but a girls GOTTA sleep sometime. When he is with me, he is happy as a clam. He only wakes up 2-3 times a night and goes right back to sleep after he eats (so I am only up for about 10 mins at a time). Mike and I have a little plan to try to get him into his own bed again SOON. So I will keep all of you updated on how that goes.
Here are a few other pictures from the weekend.
I have to admit some of the best moments of the weekend (for ALL of us) were spent like this...
