“Where Ya Been…”

Brody

Sooo, I said that I would explain where I’ve been, what I’ve been doing… essentially what’s going on in the life and world of Scott.  There really isn’t a good excuse.  I’ve been trying my best to be a father of two boys, which is essentially it.  Juggling both kids, my family, and a job got the best of me for a bit; with regards to my discipline to blog weekly and well, it got away from me.  Think of it like this, you have been exercising for weeks now, and then all of a sudden you stop for a bit, and then you are totally out of it….  That is kind of it in a nut shell; but no excuses!

Colby will be 2 years old now on Sept 2, which is just around the corner; and Brody is now 3 months old.  Since my last posted (not including the recent one from the other day), I have had another baby boy.  We named him Brody and he was (is) huge!  When he was born, (natural delivery I might add) he was 10 pounds, 8 ounces and 22 & 3/4 inches long!  He was a huge baby!  Colby at the time of his birth was only 8 pounds, 11 ounces and 21 & 1/2 inches long.  So Brody was considerable bigger than Colby.

While he was very large, the birth and delivery was a lot easier than the first birth (Colby).  With Colby, we were scheduled to come to the hospital at 6 am and he was delivered at 7:20 pm.  We had started to push at about 4:30 pm, so it took a lot of my wife’s pushing over a while for him to come out.  With Brody, we were scheduled to arrive at the hospital at 6 am and he was delivered at 10:55 am.  Considerably less time pushing and waiting; as a matter of fact, there was only a few pushes and then he came right out!  So there’s the short and brief version of where I’ve been, and of Brody’s birth!

Colby’s 4 months growth

Colby’s 4 months growth!

My son, Colby, is just growing and growing!  Not so much, in the physical sense, I’m talking about the progression of his mental and emotional growth.  He is now, eating rice cereal from a bowl!!!

Yes, we are mixing a batch of this rice cereal for him, with formula, which he is eating twice and day.  And he is even eating this with a spoon!  Starting next week, he will have it three times a day.  It will be a breakfast, lunch, and dinner type of schedule with bottled formula in between rice cereal feedings.  So, his progress from just bottled formula to now eating rice cereal from a bowl with a spoon is definite advancement. 

Next, he is now able to reach the floor while he is in his walker, and is able to move a bit in it.  He has not quite figured out the whole moving forward, but he is able to move backwards and side to side.

And lastly, he is holding his head up with no problems, turning to hear voices, and learning to roll over.  It is all very exciting.  His four months growth is right on track or above, which makes this daddy very happy!

Colby: Officially 3 Months!

Colby:  Officially 3 Months!

Colby has now reached a milestone…  three months of life! Yes, today marks his official three month birthday!  Today, being December 2nd, and him being born on September 2nd, 2009.  What a wonderful feeling.  We, his mother and I, have survived the first three months of his life, and I can proudly suggest that we have done a great job thus far.  He is a healthy, full of life, baby boy! 

He is looking older more and more each and every day.  From the moment he was born, to the day that we brought him home, and now—3 months later. He has developed and even changed, from his growth to his physically appearance.  He was lucky, as he has still not lost his hair.  I have heard that babies can sometimes loose their hair after birth.  This kid of mine seems to have gained more, and probably will soon pass me in the hair length department.  His eyes are really starting to come along, taking a genuine gorgeous blue color, well, gorgeous in my opinion that is.  In the beginning, his eyes were light and blue-ish, but they really are taking on the blue color now.    

With every milestone, I am learning that it excites me to no end.  Like when he started to learn to smile.  Now, he regularly smiles, and when he does, it is the best part of my day!  I love when he smiles at me.  He is now starting to learn to laugh, or giggle.  He has grown so much from the beginning, and I am quickly learning how fast time is flying.  While these three months have been challenging, they also are becoming the best three months of my life, thanks to his life!  Thank you Colby, for lighting up my days!
