Keegan is 1 month old today! Where has the time gone? On one hand it is hard to believe that he is already a month old. On the other hand he is such a perfect fit to our family that it feels like he has always been here! He is changing everyday. He is starting see and follow us. He is much more alert when he is awake. The poor boy is really struggling with sleeping at night. He has been spitting up like crazy when laid down so sleep is not coming naturally. We will hopefully find a position for him at night that will allow him to sleep without tummy aches and spit ups. Overall he is doing wonderfully and we cherish every minute with him (yes, even in the middle of the night too!).
Uncle Eric was in Colorado this past week for a concert. He was sweet enough to sneak away and buzz up here to see us for a few hours and meet Keegan. Magnolia was very excited to see him and Keegan seemed to really enjoy snuggling with his uncle. Thank you Eric for taking time out of your weekend to be with us for a bit!
David was gone working in Oklahoma all weekend which meant that I was flying solo for the first time with 2 kids. I must admit, I was a bit nervous and not sure that I was ready for a weekend on my own. Well, the good news is that we did it! All in all it was a very good weekend and went very smoothly! Keegan is struggling with the whole sleeping at night thing so I was very tired on Monday but oh well! I am sure there will come a day that I would give anything to get up in the middle of the night and snuggle my little boy so I wont complain now.
Our dear and wonderful friend, Kate, threw Keegan a baby shower yesterday. She was so creative and made it a mustache them. It was beyond adorable! She had straws with mustaches on them, mustache cookies, cupcakes and even a mustache game for the kids! The kids played Pin The Mustache On The Baby and did a great job! We tried to get the kids to wear mustaches for a picture of all of them, but that was a lot easier said than done! Keegan did enjoy sporting a mustache... although I must admit... he slept through most of it! It is so fun to get together with our group of friends... we all started out having one kid and now we all have 2! What a fantastic group of people! Thank you Kate for everything! You are such an amazing friend and we are so very lucky to have you in our lives!!!
We went to Italian Fest this afternoon with the Hace family. Magnolia and Will decided to get their face painted after eating some very delicious pizza. It was a great afternoon to get some fresh air. Keegan decided to sleep the whole time we were there so he missed out on all the fun but I am sure he will join in on the pizza eating next year!
Keegan is 2 weeks old already and doing great! We had his 2 week check on Friday. He is back up to his birth weight after he lost almost a pound the first week. He is now eating like a champ. He is a very pokey eater but is doing well. He also has grown about a 1/2 an inch since birth. We are starting to see little glimpses of his personality... he is a huge snuggle bug and is not a big fan if you set him down. So far he seems very laid back and is just downright adorable! He is such a perfect fit to our family and we are truly enjoying every minute!
Magnolia had her first day of school at her new preschool this week and LOVED it! She was so excited to go and was all smiles and giggles when I picked her up! It was so great to see her that excited to go and to have her chatting about all the fun she had all the way home. I think this is going to be a wonderful school year for her!
My mom came out here to help before Keegan was born, while I was in the hospital and after we came home from the hospital. It was so wonderful to have her here! She had her hands full with Magnolia while we were in the hospital but did amazing! Magnolia got several back rubs, a pedicure, and was able to bake many times! The highlight of Momo's stay for Magnolia was that she made some sleeping bags for Groovy Girls. Magnolia has been very busy playing with them ever since! Thanks for everything Momo! We love you and miss you!!
