New Pictures

Here are some new pictures of Connor:

We finally got a picture of him smiling!

Here he is playing with Mr. Moo. He is getting really good neck control now!

My baby is getting so big!!! This is his monthly picture next to Fievel. Pretty soon he is going to be bigger than Fievel!!!

He's Better

He is doing much better. Not that he really got that bad. I am really thankful. I think we caught it early enough that he never really got bad. He is such a cutie I hate to see him suffer at all. He's been sleeping a lot the last couple of days. Either he is still trying to fight off his cold (which is reasonable) and/or he is going through a growth spurt. He's been sleeping great at night so far (knock on wood). We just have to have him swaddled. If we don't do it good enough he gets his hands in his face and wakes himself up. I think we'll just keep swaddling him until he gets good hand control and starts sleeping without moving his hands all over the place.

I have a couple of pictures on my camera I want to share I just need time to get on the computer and do it. It's really hard during the week because I get home, cook dinner, eat, clean up and then spend a couple hours with Connor, then go to bed. We are going to slowly start having him go to bed earlier and earlier. This week we are feeding him at 9:30pm. Next week I'm going to start feeding him at 9pm. Probably do that for a couple weeks, then move it forward to 8:30 and finally to 8pm. That will give Surbjit and I some time at night to ourselves.

I think we are going to go to Babies R Us this weekend and get the high chair and exersaucer that I want for him. I think he'll have fun playing in those and I can put him in the high chair in the kitchen while I'm cooking so I can still watch him and talk to him while I'm cooking.

Well, that's an update in a nutshell. I know I need to e-mail some people back. There is just not enough hours in the day anymore!!

My baby has a cold :(

Well Connor has his first cold. The poor thing. He's being a champ though. He slept all last night. I think he's like momma and gets really tired when he's sick. We ended up putting him back in our bed to sleep since he isn't feeling good and we raised his little bed so he's sitting up when he's sleeping to relieve the stuffiness. We've given him a decongestant and some eye drops so his eyes don't get infected and have been using saline drops to help his nose. So far he isn't too bad. Hopefully he'll get over it quickly.

Of course I am sick too and so is Surbjit (at least he thinks. His throat is bothering him but it's been like that for awhile now). I just want to go home and sleep. I know what we are going to be doing this weekend!

BTW, at his appt yesterday he weighed in at a healthy 12 lbs 11 ozs!! And is 2 feet 1 inches long!!! (Sounds longer that way than saying he is 25"!). He is in the high percentile for height and in the lower percentile for weight. Looks like we are going to have a tall skinny kid. :)

Out of Mom & Dad's room

Well, Connor is now officially in his own crib. It's kinda nice to have the room to ourselves but I miss him. Even though he is just in the next room. :) It's not like I can just wake up and look over to see how he is doing.

Surbjit is taking Connor to the doctor this afternoon. He is sounding congested and has a runny nose and his eyes are red and watering so we think he's coming down with a cold. When I called the nurse, she said to bring him in since he's so young to make sure his ears and everything are fine too. The appt is at 4 pm. At least now I'll know for sure how much he is weighing now since everyone keeps asking me.

More pictures of Connor

Since it's been so long since i've had a chance to post pictures I think I'm just inundating you now! I'm sure no one minds though. :)

Playing on his mat.

I don't need help holding MY bottle! :)

I smile for Mommy and Daddy but once that camera comes out I get shy!!

Connor, Dylan and Katrina

Last weekend Dylan and Katrina came over to play with Connor so we took some pictures. Of course Grandma/Mom and Grandpa/Dad came over too.

Dylan, Katrina, and Connor

I think once they get older they'll be able to do more than just lay there. :)

Pictures from Connor's camping trip

Here are some pictures of Connor from the camping trip. He had a great time and the weather was beautiful!!!!

Mom and Connor hanging out Friday.

Connor playing inside the motorhome.

I really need to take more pictures of him while we are camping. We were busy on Saturday because Romy, Jeff, Cynthia and Katrina came out to visit. Jeff and Cynthia went riding while Romy, Katrina, Connor and I hung out. It was fun. Not sure when our next camping trip will be. We will see.

Connor's second camping trip

He did really well this past weekend. His schedule got a little messed up Saturday and Sunday but I'm sure he will be back to normal today. At least I hope so for Lorrie. It was a beautiful weekend and Connor got to spend a lot of time outside. As soon as I download the pictures I'll share some.

Yesterday we were sitting at home in the rocker and I was watching TV. Connor had his binkie in his mouth and he was sucking on it. I looked down at him after a couple of minutes and there he was holding his binkie!! He must of grabbed it while it was in his mouth and pulled it out. Then he let go and dropped so he didn't hold it for very long but it was really funny to see! Now if only he could keep it in himself!! :)

Nothing to report

Connor is still doing really good at daycare. Lorrie (the daycare provider) gave us some pictures of him there. When I get a chance I'll scan them in and share. There is just no time in the day to do that! We are taking Connor camping again this weekend. Dove Springs is where we are going this time. It's off the 14 Fwy north of Mojave near Red Rock State Park. Should be fun. We've been there before but no one else has that is going with us so it should be interesting. We are leaving Thursday night and Jamie, Mike, Adam and Jenni are following us. Hopefully Connor will last the whole trip there otherwise the three families will be pulling off the road to feed him! I don't see why he wouldn't last but you never know.

We finally stopped swaddling him Friday night. For the last couple of night he kept waking up and we are thinking it's because he wasn't swaddled. Finally last night he slept through the night. Makes for a little less tired mommy and daddy but I'm still a little tired this morning. Nothing caffeine won't fix. :)

Other than that, nothing to report. I'll post some pics of our camping trip after we return.

My first day

Well today is my first day back at work. So far not bad. I'm handling it ok. I did start to cry when I said good-bye to Connor. I think it's hard because he isn't even up yet. And since he is still sleeping I can't really say a proper good-bye. Oh well, we will get use to it. (or at least I will have to).

I do have to say even though I loved being home with Connor, I'm glad to be back at work. It's really nice. Nothing has really changed. Good to get back into the groove and I think I will be a better mommy and I can just spoil my little guy at night and on the weekends when I have him. I know Dad likes being with him the mornings just the two guys. I'm sure he will enjoy their time together before I get home in the evenings too.

Daycare so far is still going good. He's a good boy that seems to just go with the flow. That's a really good thing in my book.
