Burritos, Nipples, and Running

So yesterday I ventured out to get a few things.. cereal nipples for my little one and new running shoes were on the top of my list..

as was having lunch with my mom here:

But shhhh don't tell my loving husband because he gets mad everytime I eat there with out him..

Which brings me to my next point.. my little man (who is almost 2 months ahh!) eats like a horse/pig/gorilla.. any of the above work.. so his pediatrician has suggested we add rice cereal to his formula.. we tried this before and this results were not pretty. I will spare you the details. However we have since added a new bottle to our collection (mostly because Ethan is not at all picky when it comes to eating and because I liked them) BUT they don't make nipples for thicker liquids (such as rice cereal added to formula) so I bought fast flow ones and I am going to make the hole bigger myself.. please pray that this does not lead to me spilling formula all over my child or him turning into the fat kid at school in a few years

Wow my life is so exciting..

anyway.. If you have read this far you should also know that my doctor cleared me to return to normal activity after my horrible delivery c-section. So I decided it was time for me to shed the rest of this baby weight and the extra weight I had before getting pregnant and get back into my running routine. So I bought some new running shoes because my old ones don't fit quite right after having a baby.. people said my feet would grow at least 1/2 a size. They were wrong they are still the same size I just think they are a tad wider so my narrow nike shox were not working for me. Back in the day I didn't sweat when I spent over $100 dollars on running shoes.. however now with the 3 B's.. Bills, Baby, and Building a new house (not to be confused with the 5 B's of recruitment all my fellow sorostitutes -- Bibles, Boys, Booze, Bucks, Brands) I was on the search for yet another "B" a bargain..

3 stores later and just over $40 dollars later I came home with some black/pink/gray/white Sauconys. They are way comfy and equally as cute as my other much more expensive shoes.

How did my run go you ask?

I ran a mile. ONE mile. and I thought I was going to die. So did my running partner, my pup Jackson.

Happy One Month!

Yesterday was Ethan's One Month Birthday!!! and today we had his one month check up at his doctor and he did so well! I think I was more upset about him getting his vaccination than he was!
We took pictures with Jackson and with Ethan's big lion stuffed animal so we can compare his size every month and see how he has grown!

So little baby boy.. What are you up to now that you are one whole month old!?

  • You weigh 11 pounds and 7 ounces
  • You are 23 and 1/4 inches long
  • You wear size one diapers
  • You wear size newborn but more and more of your 0-3 month outfits are starting to fit!
  • You love your pacifier
  • You also love your swing
  • You love looking at yourself in the mirror on your swing, tummy time mat, and in the car
  • You have crazy arms and legs and your grandpa says that because your exercising your little muscles so you can be an awesome athlete!
  • He is probably right.. because you are SO strong! you hold your head up and sometimes you try to stand up on Mommy or Daddy when we are holding you!
  • Mommy and Daddy have lots of nicknames for you including: Baby Boy, Stink-a-sorous, Curious Ethan, and Savage (daddy's favorite)
  • You are starting to like bath time
  • Everyone says you look just like Daddy!
  • You have a lot of his mannerisms too -- like sneezing lots of times in a row and sleeping with your arms above your head.
  • Dr. Sheth says you are very healthy and right on your developmental marks =)

Time is flying! When I was pregnant I never thought he would get here and now that he is here it is going soo fast. I'm loving every minute of it!
