My Life Lately

 Tyce is already two months old.  I cant believe how fast the time flies and how fast they grow!   We had his two month check up this week, Tyce did so good.  He's a perfectly average baby with his weight, height and noggen size.  We got his first round of immunizations too and he was such a trooper, he did scream bloody murder when they stuck him but as soon as I picked him up he was just fine.  It was probably more traumatizing for me to watch than for him to get them.

Last night was pure bliss..... drum roll please.... he slept through the night!  He's been showing signs that he was getting closer to this.  Slowly the past week he has been waking up later and later for his middle of the night feeding, so the night before last I didn't go in when he was stirring to eat.  It only took him an hour to go completely back to sleep but before that there was only half hearted wining and noise making.  It paid off too, last night was the first night in two months that I've gotten more than four consecutive hours of sleep at a time.  For those of you that may be wondering, we are doing Baby Wise and it seems to be paying off. (Baby Wise is a sleep training program for infants which if followed should have babies sleeping through the night between weeks 8-12, Tyce is 9 weeks)  Let's cross our fingers that it wasn't just a one night thing.

Our family also welcomed another little soul into our lives this week.  Kyle's step brother Brett and his wife Chantee gave birth to their little girl Isabel Chantee Wyatt on the 15th. We visited last night and she was absolutely adorable.  Tyce's first cousin!

The days left on my maternity leave are slowly dwindling down.  I find myself going into brief panic modes when I realize that soon I'm going to have to go back to work and leave my little baby with a stranger to be taken care of.  I'm dreading trying to find someone trust worthy and reliable enough to watch over the most precious person in my life.  I don't suppose any of you stay at home mommies of mine would be interested in making some extra dinero every month?  *Sigh* Or do you have any suggestions of where to look? Help!

Tyce's Blessing

Holy Cow!  What a whirlwind it has been the past month.  I have been spending my day with this cute little man. 

I'm learning new things every day about being a parent.  I never could have imagined that my life could be this fulfilling doing nothing but sitting at home changing dirty diapers all day every day.

Yesterday we had Tyce's blessing.  I feel so fortunate that I have a husband worthy to hold the priesthood and was able to give our son his blessing, Kyle did an amazing job.  We are also fortunate to have have the support of our families and friends.  Tyce already has so many people in his life that love him.

Now that I'm finally getting the hang of this Mom thing I'm looking forward to soaking up every minute of the next two months I have off of work and preparing for the up coming holidays with my new little family.
