6 months!

I have a 6.5 month old! Holy cow. Where did the time go!

He is amazing! He is starting to become very mobile. He rolls or scoots where ever he wants to go. He can sit unassisted and can stand while holding onto something for a decent amount of time. He gives hugs and open mouthed sloppy kisses that melt my heart. He's finally sleeping better and only wakes up once a night. We started solids at 5.5 months and hes had sweet potatoes, acorn and butternut squash, apples, bananas and carrots. He loves all food! He eats it so fast and hasn't spit anything out yet. At his 6 month appt he was 16 lbs 14 oz and 26 in. Hes in mostly 6 month clothes, but I'm starting to add in some 9 month.

Oooo and hes the cutest thing I've ever seen!!

Ollie gator + 3 month pics

We dressed up oliver to pass out candy last night and then my sister and I did a little photo shoot at my parents house before their fall party. Also I got his 3 month pics back too and love them!

Here is our little alligator!

Today was one of the best days ever.

Right after I took this photo, Oliver rolled over!!!!!!!! Belly to back.

I am so proud and so so happy that he did it right in front of my face! I tried to see if he'd do it again so I could video tape, but I think it tuckered him out and he's napping instead. Loooove this little man so much!

2 months!

Yikes! I need to get better about blogging. I really want to be able to remember everything and time is just going so fast.

Little Oliver is not so little anymore. He turned 2 months old yesterday and is 12lb 12oz 23.5 inches! He is wearing 0-3 in almost everything, except 6 months in footed jammies because he's long. He wears one size cloth diapers during the day on the smallest setting and we just moved him to size 2 disposables at night because we were gifted a ton of them and I didn't want to buy another pack of 1s. He sleeps 6-7 hour stretches consistently at night and then another 2 hour stretch and then he snuggles in bed with me until we decide to get up for the day.

He smiles and laughs all the time. He started smiling around 4 weeks and laughing around 5 and now he is always cracking up. He loves looking in mirrors and his bugs that hang from his car seat. He doesn't really like napping anywhere other than on someone's chest. He is still exclusively breast fed and eats about every 2 hours. Pretty much he's amazing.

Slim Down Saturday

I forgot to post this yesterday so it's  really slim down Sunday, but o well.

I lost 2.4 this week so I now have 11 more pounds until my prepregnancy weight. I went on a walk Monday and Wednesday and yesterday. My goal for this week is 45 min walk 5 days. It's supposed to be super cool out this week so that should be do able.

Oliver was three weeks old yesterday!!

He loves going on walks

Slim Down Saturday

I had my two week check up today to look at my incision. She said it looks good and that I can start doing some light walking. I've decided to do a weekly weight loss/exercise check in since I am now able to get out of the house more.

I gained 48! pounds while I was pregnant. Yikes! In two weeks I've lost 34.6 lbs. I have 13.4 more to go until I'm at my prepregnancy weight. Once I get there I will then decide if I want to lose more. I feel like I'm going to need to lose more than that to fit into my old clothes. My body shape has definitely changed.

I'm hoping posting every week will help keep me accountable.

Here are my starting pictures. And a picture of oliver because he's better looking than me.
