IMG_9746IMG_9758Chandler 4 Months

Weight/Height: 18 lbs 14oz (100 percentile) 27 inches ( 100 percentile)
Hair/Eyes: Chandlers eyes are officially turning brown! The center of her eyes are staring to turn a dark brown, the rest are still a dark grey. Chandlers hair is still growing back in blonde, we still don’t have a ton of hair, but its definitely growing!
Diapers: We are squeezing in our size 3s‚ÄĒ Honest brand , our next shipment arrives this week in size 4s!
Clothes: some baby gap 6-12 month depending on what it is and 12-18 months. Carters 12 months.
Eating: Chandler is still breastfeeding on demand, usually about 2-3 hours during the day and a few longer stretches at night. She is not a fan of any bottles we have tried so far.
Sleeping: Chandler is a cat napper, unless we are in the car. She takes several 30-45 minute naps in her crib during the day. She will sleep for a little longer if she’s in her carseat. She enjoys sleeping on her side with her paci and blanket. She isn‚Äôt a huge fan of being held when sleeping, most of the time shed rather be in her crib.. She goes to bed in her crib after her bath around 7 each night and gets up at 7am. She usually eats 2-3 times during this time, but for the first time recently..she only woke up once to eat! Maybe she will continue that trend ūüôā
Favorites: being carried, her paci, holding a swaddle blanket, chewing on anything especially her hands, being talked to, fake sneezes, standing up, her exersaucer, watching her big brother, watching her mobile , baby bjorn, baby ktan, sophie, strawberry teether, being read books, any toys that make noise, being tickled, sitting in her high chair at the table, kisses & her momma!
Milestones: Chandler has started trying to reach for toys, trying to chew on all things, holding toys & attempting to roll but hasn’t quite mastered it yet. She really started belly laughing this month & im convinced its the greatest sound! She has found even more of her voice this month and a little higher pitched than last! She has always been pretty chatty, but im pretty sure you can carry on a full conversation with this girl sometimes.

Chandler Marie –2 Months

IMG_8898

Weight/Height: 15lbs 3oz (100th percentile) , 24 inches long (90 %)

 Hair/Eyes: Chandlers hair is still brown, but you can see the light hair coming in. It is super curly when we go outside in the humidity!

¬†Diapers: Size 2,¬†Honest diapers … Getting snug, our next shipment will definitely be 3s!

 Clothes: Baby gap 6-12 Carters 9 months ( we can still squeeze into some 6 month outfits if they are stretchy or dresses!)

 Eating: We are still breastfeeding on demand, which is usually every 2-2.5 hours during the day. At night we usually get a 5 hour stretch followed by a 3-4 hour stretch!

 Sleeping: Chandler usually takes her longest nap in the morning around 8-9am which is usually 1-2 hours. She loves sleeping in her carseat, the ktan & her mamaroo. She normally takes 30 min- hour naps the rest of the day. After her 6-7 pm feeding she goes to bed about an hour later. We swaddle her, give her a paci and rock her for a few minutes, if shes not asleep she will fall asleep with her paci about 2 minutes after being laid down. She then sleeps until sometime between 12-1 , eats and then sleeps until  3-4 , eats and shes up by 630 ready to start her day. We are grateful for a such a great sleeper at night!

 Milestones: So many smiles and coos this month! She really has started to follow us and giggle when we are talking to her ( its the sweetest). Chandler has started to enjoy being on her activity mat, watching her toys or just being talked to. This is a huge change from last month where she never wanted us to lay her down.

Favorites: Bathtime, her hair being brushed, being talked to, being walked around in the ktan, riding in the car, tummy time, eating, being swaddled & her paci.

 

We are loving watching Chandler’s personality blossom¬†each day! Thankful for this healthy sweet girl everyday!

The Big 2015

so I thought 2014 was a big year for my family, but then 2015 showed up! Lots of first happenings in my family. My family that is quickly growing.

Our year of firsts

1. My little sister , Carly graduated from college and looking for an early education teacher job while working on getting her masters.

2. The same sister is planning her special day, her Wedding! ¬†So our over achiever Mother is on that with not a minute to spare. Well I take that back, she always has a minute to spare to read or play with her grand babies. The day is upon us sooner this we think. What is it Carly …. 59 days?

3. My older sister , Kt decided why not add another pregnancy into the mix of our events in 2015. BUT, not one baby, 2! TWINS- identical twins. So Kt will have 3 children under the age of 2.

4. And in my household I will have a baby turning 3 and our Park turning 1! Not to mention all the other special Weddings we have this year and fun events that go with planning a wedding!

5. Hopefully a play date this year for all the Mommas ! It will be nice to be together and spend time loving on our 6 sweet babies! ~Chandler Marie , I am patiently/ not so patiently waiting to meet you in person and gently squeeze you!

We are taking advice on names for the twins. Did I mention they are boys! 3 boys for Kt! Send those suggestions on over!

 Carly with her fiancé , Tyler. #TytheKnot
