Brazos' Life: Quarter 1

My baby is 3 MONTHS (as of Monday)! Wow!

He's growing so much and has changed a ton in the past couple weeks alone. He's such a good baby and I love my little stinker to pieces!!

I weighed him yesterday and my little chunky monkey is 16.6 lbs! I haven't measured him so I'm not sure how many inches he's grown but I know he's definitely gained some height in the last month! We don't have another doc appointment until May 26th so I'll have to wait for the official stats until then.

More updates and pics to come from our fun family Easter weekend to Texas and just life in general - as soon as I find the time to sit at home and re-cap everything! Being a working mom keeps you busy, busy, busy...

There was one in the bed and the little one said "Roll Over, Roll Over"

We all know that I let my Braz monster sleep on his tummy cause that's what he likes. Well, last night I put him to bed on his tummy as usual and he woke up at 2 a.m. this morning which is NOT usual. I stumbled sleepily into his room and peek in his crib and....

He was looking right back at me - ON HIS BACK! He rolled over in his sleep!

Brazos has not rolled over since he was 3 weeks old which makes me feel like those rollovers shouldn't count since he didn't have the chub to have to roll around like he does now. So, mark another accomplishment off his list!

We've officially begun mobilization people! Next thing you know he'll be scootin', then crawling, then -EEK- WALKING!

You're My Honeybunch, Sugar Plum, Pumpy-umpy-umpkin!

Brazos Carl Allen is 11 weeks old (on Tuesday) ~ how that happened I'm still trying to figure out. This pic was from last Sunday. He thinks his Daddy is kind of funny. I have to agree. :o) Its from Jason's phone so its a little fuzzy but you can still see the cuteness ~ could probably spot it from a mile away.

Just wanted to jot down a few of the Braz man's little quirks and accomplishments:
*He is soooooooo close to giggling, still. I could almost count a couple times as a giggle, but nothing official...yet. Tonya says he's so close, he sort of has his own little "almost" giggle.
*He has a short fuse temper. The boy will be smiling and cooing one second and a split, half-second later he's pissed and screeching at the top of his tiny lungs ie "You better come pick me up NOW or your ear drums will bleed!". And he could make your ear drums bleed, you best believe.
*When he's nursing, he always hikes his top leg up onto my chest and puts his fo…

Going Back to Work

I miss my little man to pieces!

Coming back to work was just as hard (if not harder) as I imagined. I didn't want to leave him when I dropped him off, thought about him every second of the drive to work, missed him terribly every moment of the day, and was a antsy mess waiting for 4:30 to roll around (not to mention a cheesing, giddy GOOB and practically skipped up to Tonya's front door when I picked him up). I will admit though, once I got to work and got going, I didn't feel like sobbing and feeling sorry for myself every ten minutes, so that was a plus. Today the drop off was easier but the day is worse. Obviously I'm having a hard time concentrating - case in point I'm writing a Post on the blog. So glad its Friday and I have the weekend to soak up some snuggle time with him.

I never dreamed in a million years that I would be wanting to be a stay-at-home mom so badly. I always knew I would be a working mom. And I can't say that I want to be a SAHM necessar…
