Micah- 9 Month Update

You are the HAPPIEST baby I have ever encountered!

You are still very tall and skinny and now you have curly curly hair. It is the cutest!

  • If mommy is in the room you want me to be playing with you, holding you or feeding you. Heaven forbid I leave the room of you will start crying.
  • You just love people and everyone loves you!!!
  • You wear a size 3 diaper an 9-12 month clothes.
  • You are so mobile! You had been trying to crawl for about a month, kind of dragging your body behind your arms but in the last week you just took off!
  • You sit perfectly and really have great control of your body. I am sure you will start pulling up in the next week or so.
  • You can hold your own bottle which you think is pretty cool. You like playing with it after you have it all drank.
  • You are in your bed from 9am-11am and 1pm-3pm. Usually you are asleep but sometimes you just lay in bed and play.
  • You love the tag blanket I made for Eli and sleep with it all the time! You hold it with your right arm and put your middle and index finger of your left hand in your mouth.
  • You are now in a big boy car seat and really like being able to look out the window.
  • You think Eli is hilarious! You love anytime he is playing near you.
  • You take three bottles a day at meal times 7 oz each and you love food! Stage 2 is where you are now but you want to eat everything on mommy and daddy’s plate. I hope to try stage 3 by next month.
  • You have three teeth. Your two bottom teeth and the top left tooth, but not the front tooth the one next to it.
  • You sleep usually 7 to 7 but if you aren’t asleep again you just play in bed. I love it in the mornings!!

Micah- 5 Months

Happy, happy, happy is the theme! You are always happy!

  • You talk all the time!
  • Rolling over is something you do every once in a while but again you are just happy whether you are on your back or tummy.
  • There is a toy in your mouth at all times! The only thing you got for Christmas from Mommy and Daddy were toys that you could look at and put in your mouth. Ha!
  • We keep a bib on you at all times because you slobber so much but still no teeth.
  • You like to see what is going on so you don’t like to be in any position that doesn’t let you see the room.
  • You sit in the bumbo sometimes and mommy puts you on your belly in the boppy up on the bar while she does dishes and makes dinner again because you love to watch everything.
  • Your favorite person to watch is Eli.
  • He has held you a handful of times but is much too busy for much more. Ha.
  • You are in size 6 clothes and some 3-6 months pjs.
  • Size 2 diapers are a must since blowouts are a part of your weekly plans.
  • The paci is still a sometimes thing.
  • You are still sleeping wonderfully which Mommy loves!

We truly couldn’t ask for a more content and joyful baby. Thank you for being so awesome already!

Micah- 4 Months

You are the happiest baby! I promise I will eventually come back and fill in the height and weight but it is never around when I am writing these. I have them in a pile of papers somewhere. Ha! I promise to get paper piles organized every week and it just never happens. Oh well, I have more important things in life like two little boys which is the point of this post.

Weight:

Height:

  • Again, you are the happiest baby.
  • You love to have people talk to you.
  • You laugh lots and love being tickled.
  • You smile literally every time someone makes eye contact with you.
  • You are very aware of everything!
  • You sleep like a dream! 7pm-7am is the norm.
  • You love toys. Especially ones that go in your mouth.I think you are starting with teeth. Not necessarily cutting them but something because there is so much slobber.
  • You should be in size two diapers but I am using up the last of my size ones before I make the switch.
  • You are in 3-6 month clothes and more toward 6 months since you are so long.
  • You are still impartial to your pacifier. You like it sometimes but are generally content to not have it.
  • Your naps are a bit random because we are so dang buys but that will hopefully change after the holidays. Fingers crossed.
  • You love your brother. Watching you smile at him brings me the greatest joy. He doesn’t interact with you much but I know you two will be best friends.
  • Again, just to say it again, you are such a happy baby!!!

Micah- 3 Months

You will see from the pictures that our littlest man has changed SO MUCH in the last month! He looks different to us all the time and again you will see from the pictures he looks really different even based on the expression he is making.

IMG_4422 IMG_4424 IMG_4439 IMG_4425 IMG_4435 IMG_4429You are such a joyful little boy and you have brightened up our days so very much.

  • You are in size 3-6 month clothes
  • You are in size 1 diapers
  • You have laughed at mommy
  • You love watching Eli play
  • Your favorite place is the floor of the library. You love stretching out and just talking and smiling at Mommy.
  • You sleep on your tummy because you are more than able to lift and move your head.
  • You started sleeping through the night three days before you turned 3 months old and Mommy loves it!
  • You are in your crib in your room on the other side of the house which is hard for mommy, but also good because she is able to sleep a bit more soundly without hearing every little sound you make.
  • You have had a cold for an entire month. Boo. However, you are handling it like a champ!
  • You went on your first road trip with Mommy and Grandma to KY for Taylor Bobb’s wedding and met so many people.
  • You love your paci, but are not dependent upon it and it falls out as soon as you fall asleep. Ha.

Again, you are a dream come true. We all love you. There have been a few days that daddy has been home and kept you while mommy went to get Eli from school. Every time you are not there Eli asks, “Where is baby Micah?”. Also in any movie or show that has a baby Eli refers to it as baby Micah. He loves you so. Thank you for being so very special our little Micah boy.

Here is Eli at 9 weeks adjusted which is as close as I can get to a three month comparison.

Micah Due and 1 Month Old

So this past weekend on the 7th was Micah’s actual due date. Forget the scheduled c-section. This is the day they told us when we found out we were preggers back in December. So in keeping with the tradition I started with Eli I plan to do monthly pictures. I combined this post. On his due date he was 4 weeks and 2 days old and 1 day shy of being a calendar month old. So it is his due date and one month pictures all in one.

IMG_4261 IMG_4275 IMG_4276 IMG_4285 IMG_4283 IMG_4278As like all my posts these pictures aren’t professional just a way for us to document the life of our newest little one.

In the last month you have and are…

  • In newborn clothes but they are all too short for you
  • You have rolled over THREE different times and I am sure you would again if I would lay you on your stomach.
  • I have had to move the shoulder straps on the car seat up a level because you are so tall!
  • You sleep great.
  • You eat around 100mL every 3 hours.
  • You are so very content unless you are hungry or are going to the bathroom.
  • You have the hiccups several times a day which doesn’t seem to bother you but I hate for your sake.
  • Eli doesn’t pay you much attention unless you have a dirty diaper or are crying which typically go together. Ha!
  • You love to be snuggled and swaddled.
  • Walks are your jam. Really just being outside in general you love.

Daddy, Eli and I love you so much! We cannot believe you have been in our lives for a month already since you were only supposed to have been here a week with the scheduled c-section. In the last month we have had you, moved homes, Eli started school, Uncle Matthew moved in with us and Gigi and Pa have been visiting for two weeks! We have all survived and been doing exceptionally well and I attribute that in large part to you being a great relaxed baby. So a big thank you from all of us for being chill. Keep up the good work little one.

These are Eli’s photos for reference. We lost tons but I was able to find two. Apparently I didn’t start his monthly blogs until 3 months. 284893_544076206111_137161_n 284893_544076211101_6586136_n
