* Well the first update is a pretty obvious one - I got my blog title/header changed! We're up to date with our new family of four now. Accomplishment!
* This sleeping beauty has actually been regressing in her sleeping habits. Gone are the days of going 3 1/2 or 4 hours between feedings at night. The past few days we've been lucky if we make it to 3 hours between feedings at night. It's been a little frustrating, but at least I'm waking up to hold my Little Love, so that makes it bearable. I'll be ok if she decides to switch back though :)
* When we went in for Landon's 18 month doctor appt I had them check Layla's weight as well just to make sure she was gaining weight since she hadn't really gained much at her 5 day check up (she was 7 lbs. 10 oz. then). Well, no need to worry since she was 9 lbs. 3 oz! That's about a pound and a half in 2 weeks. I no longer feel concerned and/or guilty about the fact that she only eats for like, 5 minutes on the first side and 3 or 4 minutes on the second. We're clearly not lacking for nutrition here.
|Looks like those little cheeks will keep growing!|
* On Thursday morning Layla stayed home with Dad while I took Landon to get his second hair cut. This time we went to my hair stylist, Lindsey, and we had a much better experience than last time! Probably helps that he was a couple of months older this time.
|Sitting like a big boy! Checking out the cape|
It also could have had something to do with the fact that Lindsey gave him a lollipop to occupy him. Bribery!
Regardless, he actually sat relatively still this time (for Landon) and I didn't have to choke hold him a single time! He also barely cried - only a little when Lindsey used the hair clippers around his neck/ears. After the cut was all over he looked a little bit like he had a beard from the hair sticking to his sucker-sticky face!
|No real beards for a LONG time Landon|
Landon loved Lindsey (could be the lollipop). He stuck right with her while we checked out and watched her run the credit card machine. He may have stayed all day, especially if there were more lollipops involved!
I'm a little sad about how old his new haircut makes him look - where's my baby boy?! But Lindsey did an amazing job and Landon no longer has wild hair. Success!
