Beckhams 2 months old!

I took Beckham into his 8 week check up. He is pretty much a healthy little boy. His head and weight grew but his height stayed the same so he's growing outward and not taller. ha ha. It is a relief not having to worry if I'm feeding my kid enough like I was with Joslyn.
So these are his stats:
  • weight 11 pounds (45th percentile)
  • Height same as 6 weeks
  • Head 50th percentile

Newborn pictures

When Joslyn was born I had Andrea Sponenburgh take the pictures. She did an amazing job on them so of course I asked her if she had time if she would take Beckham's newborn pictures. She did, and they turned out so great. But it was only because she is an amazing photographer who was very patient with my son. Beckham wouldn't sleep or cooperate with the poses, and she kept peeing and pooping all over her blankets. I went to her house the first day and he just wasn't going to have it, so then she came to my house and brought all her props. Here are a few of his pictures, if you want to see them all you can see them on my facebook page!

Remember me?

I think a whole year went by and I didn't touch my blog. I guess that means it was a busy year! Well between working, being a wife and mom, and just living, I had to re-prioritize and cut off some items on my to do list. Well now I have a little extra time and I like to post about our busy life, mainly because I can look back at my posts as a journal.So now its catch up time! For starters.. I was pregnant and then had another baby! yup! I got a little grief about not letting a lot of people knowing and not giving up dates throughout the pregnancy on facebook. I didn't want to jinks the pregnancy, after have gone through two mis-carriages, I didn't really want to reveal too much unless it was official. My doctor told me he was going out of town and that the last day he could deliver my child was December 26th. So we scheduled an appointment at the hospital and I was induced. Started at 9:30AM and Beckham Cory Sayre entered the world at 2:33PM. Everything went really well and Beckham is a healthy baby boy. Was a little jaundice at first but that only lasted about 2 weeks.

Here is Beckham's one month old picture.
When I took him in at his 6 weeks check up they gave me his stats:
Weight: 10 pounds
Height: 21 inches
Head circumference: 15 inches

It was a relief to finally here a Doctor say whatever you are doing keep it up. With Joslyn I got a lot of grief about how petite she was, and that I wasn't feeding her enough. Well I'm doing the exact same thing and my boy just I guess doesn't want to be as petite. ha ha He is pretty dang strong though. On the day we brought him home, I gave him tummy time and he rolled from his belly to his back. I thought it was a fluke, but then he did it again. Two weeks later He was crying on his belly and then rolled over again. Again I put him on his belly and he rolled over. He holds his head up really well, and pushes against his feet like he wants to stand up. He didn't stay newborn for very long, just seems like he is already growing up way too fast.

Funny story real quick: the first week that we had Beckham in our home, Joslyn wasn't sure what to think of him. She was starting to go through some changes, like dis-obey more, not go to bed easy anymore, etc. Well she wasn't listening to me when I asked her to get her pajamas on. She just sat in one baby seats. Well I placed Beckham on her bed so I could grab her pj's out of her dresser. That got her going! she stood up, walked over to her bed, got on the stool to climb onto the bed, crawled towards Beck, and then on all fours hovered over and yelled "Get out!". I just stood still watching this in surprise thinking, did that just come out of my little sweet girl? Then she yelled it again. "Get out!", grabbed a pillow and threw it at his face. Luckily I was there so I caught the pillow before it hit his face. I had a hard time laughing and had to tell Joslyn that it wasn't nice to say or do that to her little brother and that she needed to be gentle. Needless to say we are past this stage, and now she is a great help with her little brother and loves to take care of him. And yes he is allowed on her bed now. Well that's the up date. I am going to try and be better at posting this year now that I am a stay at home mom. Until next post!
