The Latest on Liam and Max

Tuesday, 09 May 2006

I had to post a shot of max the sleeper! Max finally slept for 8 hours!!!! Monday night, May 8 - 10 weeks. Woo Hoo! I emptied my camera of other accumulated photos as well

Wednesday, 03 May 2006

Max had his 2 month appointment on Friday, April 29. He now weighs 13.5 lbs and is 23.5 inches long. He was diagnosed with an allergy so I am now on a diary and soy free diet. He was also diagnosed with Reflux and started Zantac to try to alleviate his pain. We are hoping he feels better soon. Max is a very happy boy when he doesn't have his digestive issues. He smiles and coos and even started to squeal. The poor kid has had a rough few weeks!

Liam recently got a new kid size table. He loves it. We tried eating at it, but food ended up on the wall and all over the floor, more so than usual. So now we use it for crafts.

Sunday, 02 April 2006

Max is now a month old. We had his doctors appointment on Friday the 24th and he weighed in at 9.6 pounds. He added 2 pounds to his weight in a month. He is completely healthy! We had a challenging 3rd week, but things seem to be getting better every day. He is sleeping well enough at night, at least one 4 hour stretch, so Mom is feeling better as well. Liam has been great with Max. We are thankful that he enjoys his brother thus far!

We had a photographer come in to take some shots of Liam and Max. Liam was not the best model for these this time around. We'll wait a few months before trying it again. They are cute anyways.

Some shots of Max visiting with his cousins

Friday, 10 March 2006

Update... Max is now 2 weeks old. As of Tuesday, he weighed 7.7 lbs and was 20.5 inches long. He has gained 9 ounces since leaving the hospital, and the doctor is very glad for that. He is getting more alert every day. He is even decent at night, usually going right back to sleep after nursing. We have been sleeping with him, but may try to move him into his bassinet soon as he is very noisy. Bob is going back to work on Monday so I'm a little nervous how the 3 of us will do, but we have a few activities planned so hopefully it'll be better than expected.

(This set of pictures is from about 2 months ago) Last week my friends surprised me with a baby shower for Peanut! Liam and I were being lazy that day and actually planned on skipping playgroup, so they brought the party to us, complete with food, cake and gifts. Thanks Girls, I really appreciate it. Sorry to be a big PITA. Here are some photos of the afternoon.

People born in the Year of the Dog possess the best traits of human nature. They have a deep sense of loyalty, are honest, and inspire other people¡¦s confidence because they know how to keep secrets. But Dog People are somewhat selfish, terribly stubborn, and eccentric. They care little for wealth, yet somehow always seem to have money. They can be cold emotionally and sometimes distant at parties. They can find fault with many things and are noted for their sharp tongues. Dog people make good leaders. They are compatible with those born in the Years of the Horse, Tiger, and Rabbit.

Some Winter and Christmas 2005 Photos

Saturday, 31 December 2005

We had a photographer come to our house in November and take some shots of Liam. He is just too active to go to a studio right now. We think she did a great job. We'll have her come back in a few months after Peanut is born to take some more of Liam and his new sibling

[Christmas day addition: Its a boy!!!! ]

We decided to treat ourselves to a Christmas Suprise and have a 4D Ultrasound done of Baby Peanut. Besides these really cute and lifelike photos, the Technician has written the baby's gender in an envelope, to be opened on Christmas Morning. We are very excited. She couldn't tell us how big the baby is, but she suspects a "good size" as the cheeks are nice and full. There have been limited Krispy Kreme's this time around, so let's hope we don't have a repeat 10 Pounder.

Just some more baby pics

Wednesday, 18 August 2004

We are trying to get a good picture for the birth announcement... Trying to get that perfect photo is hard.... take a peek

Monday, 09 August 2004

Liam is sleeping, so I have a few moments... It has been a week since we went to the hospital... a lot of adjustment... Liam's day is 3 hours long. Liam feeds for about 40 minutes, then has some fussiness (crying unless held or entertained), then he sometimes sleeps. Repeat. We have been home from the hospital for 36 Liam days or almost 5 earth days. Since we are breastfeeding, there is no way to get more than 2 hours of sleep at a pop. Alas, he seems to rarely settle down after feeding... so we are getting nightly naps... we are sometimes tired, irritable, overwhelmed... and of course, always delighted to have little Liam...

We got some early baby pictures last week. This is Crystal's ultrasound from Thursday March 4th. They are a bit blury, I didn't have a scanner - so I used my digital camera.

January 15, 2004

In late January we got this clip of baby pea's heart beat. The doctor used a "Doppler" device to listen to the baby's heart beat. We think the baby's pulse is about 150 beats per minute.

November 23, 2003

Woo hoo!! On November 23, 2003 we get the first indication that things are going to be very different around here..... some photos taken at that time.
