Where do I start?!?!

I've been a bad blog updater!! Blogging has been put on the back burner but I'm going to update with pictures soon! I've also been a bad blog stalker - sorry I haven't left comments--I've pretty much just checked the updates on the side of my blog to see if there were any interesting/new/exciting news on anybody's blogs that I just had to read about!!



Anyway, we've been busy in the Northcutt household!!! Jace is growing like a weed!!! He's our little chunkster, compared to Reid. He's already about 2 pounds heavier than Reid was at this age and the same length! We just had his 2 month appointment and he weighs 12 pounds, 13 oz. and is 23 and a half inches long (75th for both). He has been the calmest, easiest baby!!!! And, he's so smiley - he loves to smile when people talk to him! So, there's hope for those of you who had a hard first one (which Reid was!!!!) He rarely fusses and if he does it's because he's either hungry or tired. I do wish he was sleeping longer at night, but at least he just eats and goes right back to sleep. It varies each night - some nights he wakes up every 4 hours, and then some nights he'll go 5-6 hours and then 4 after that. (During the day he pretty much eats every 3 hours). I'm still nursing and I love it! Although, I have about 10 pounds to lose that just won't come off - so frustrating!!!!

Reid is still doing really well in underwear - he is out of diapers and into big boy underwear all the time! However, I do pull-ups for nap and bedtime because I'm just not ready to tackle that battle (and plus, we have a child-proof door thing on his bedroom door so he can't get out to use the restroom.) And, we have done away with the paci!!!!! If I had known that it would not be a big deal, I would have done it long ago! He was just using it for sleep times, but the other day, I told him that we were going to do no more bobbies (what he calls his pacies) and that if he went without it at his nap he could have 3 M&Ms when he got up. Hasn't used it since! He has not even acted like he missses it - hasn't asked for it or anything. Yay!! Although, all these "big boy" changes means he's really growing up.

Whew!!! I have so many pictures to update with that it overwhelms me, but I will get to it! My next post will be about the best $40 ever spent.......

welcome back! :)

funny, bennett calls his paci a "boppy" which sometimes sounds like bobbie. im dreading taking it away, but plan on it when he turns two...which is around the time i want to move him to a big boy bed. maybe it will work hand in hand, or maybe it will be a disaster!!

glad everything is going well with jace

Sounds like everything is going well :o) I can't wait to see more pictures - when you get the time, no pressure - I can't imagine what life with 2 is like yet. And I'm pretty sure you look great...I still have about 10 pounds to lose from Reagan & she's 1 1/2!

I'm totally coming to you when it's time to potty train Landon {which won't be any time soon...BOO} And I'm SO happy Jace is such a sweet baby!!! Doesn't it make things so much easier?!?! Love you, friend!!

Samantha said...

I know- dropping the paci was really easy for Afton too. I felt just like you, who knew it would be so easy?! It's amazing what a few M&M's can do!

Tiffany said...

YAY! Welcome back to blogging! We've missed you :-)

So glad to see you back! I STILL haven't gotten rid of the paci- I'm a little scared, I'm not sure MandMs will do the trick for Carter.....I need to find soemthing that Carter will do things for- he's so hard headed! Oh, and I am super impressed at your potty training sucess, all I can say is wow- you're awesome!!
