Mother's Day 2009

So Kristy celebrated her first Mother's Day as a mom this year and she must admit that until now, she could not truly appreciate the job of a mother. Because of this, she wants to say a BIG thank you to her mom and let her know how much she loves her and thanks her for being such a great mom! She can only hope that her son will someday appreciate her as much as she now appreciates her mom.

Josh surprised Kristy for Mother's Day this year with a beautiful pot of flowers and some yummy donuts from a local donut shop. They later spent some time at the lake and hung out with Josh's parents and brother, Jared, who were there visiting for the weekend.

Kristy is currently a stay-at-home mommy, which is not an easy job somedays. She can't imagine how hard it would be having a job outside the home on top of her job as a mommy. Thankfully, for now, she can enjoy being a mommy and return to the working world when she and Ethan are ready!

Ethan's Two Month Check-Up

I took Ethan for his two month check-up today in Newnan. He is still doing great! Since last month, he has gained 1 lb, 15 ozs, to weigh in at an impressive 12 lbs, 11 ozs, which is still in the 75th percentile. He grew an additional inch from his previous length of 22 inches, to a length of 23 inches now, which is in the 50th percentile. His head circumference has also increased to 40 cm, which is also in the 50th percentile. 

He received his first round of vaccinations, 3 shots and 1 that was taken orally. The first shot was a combination of the DTaP (Diptheria, Tetanus and Pertussis), Polio, and Influenzae Type b (Hib), the second was for Hepatitis B, and the third was a Pneumococcal conjugate. The oral vaccine was for rotavirus. He did fantastic! He only cried for a minute and then mommy was able to get him calmed back down. After eating his lunch he was fast asleep again for the trip home! :) Everything else looked and sounded good, so we will be back in two months for his 4-month check-up!

Below is a pic of Ethan at two months, once again wearing a 12-month onesie. Amazing how much he has changed in just a month! Getting cuter by the day! ;)

So, Ethan has had some great developments in the sleeping department. He graduated to his own bed at 8 weeks old. He had been sleeping in our room in his pack 'n play, but he is now sleeping in his crib in the nursery! :)

We have also been incredibly fortunate that he is sleeping all night long already! We usually put him down by 10:30 pm and he has been sleeping consistently until at least 7 am, sometimes until 9 am! :) This has been great for Josh and I! We are just hoping he can keep it up! ;)
