Our Growing Boy

Oscar is growing so big! We had out 2 month checkup yesterday and were happy with his progress. He now weighs in at 11 pounds 5 ounces and is 24 1/2 inches. He is in the 32% for weight and 89% for length. Good Job Oscar! We knew he was getting long because I have had to switch him to his 3 to 6 month pajamas because with the feet he can't stretch all the way out.
The doctor helped put our minds at easy about other things as well. He did pretty good when they gave him shots. He just looked so surprised and mad that someone would do that to him but then I just feed him and he was calm. He let us eat for about 20 mins at our favorite place the Training Table. But then he wasn't so good on the ride home. He cried a lot. And when I went to get him out of his carseat he had throw-up on him. He cries so hard in the car sometimes he throws up. He hasn't become the expert car rider like he used to be when he was just a few weeks old. Makes for unpleasant traveling.

Even more exciting is Oscar has been such a good sleeper at night the last couple of nights. I book has been recommended to me but a couple of different friends so I have been reading like crazy. Well Wednesday night Oscar slept from 8:30 until 4:15. I couldn't believe it. I for sure thought it was just a one time thing but last night he slept from 9'ish until 5 this morning. How wonderful. When he wakes up too he eats and goes right back to sleep for another couple of hours. It has been heaven getting that much sleep all at once.

Oscar in his sling

Before we moved back to Utah, Lola bought me a sling to help with little Oscar on the airplane ride home. Little did I know how much use I would get out of this sling. Oscar and I go on walks all over Grantsville with this thing and he just sleeps the whole time. Living in a small town now it is kind of nice because I can walk pretty much anywhere I want to go. We have made several trips to the post office to mail things off or to the local grocery store to pick something up. When Deke gets off work we will head out with Izzie and Oscar. I am not looking forward to the colder weather because my walking will be limited. It has also been very handy when we have gone into Salt Lake for a shopping trip. Oscar just sleeps away! Deke has tried to switch over to the carrier now so he can carry him but Oscar isn't much of a fan of that yet. The sling is good up to 20 lbs (only if my shoulder can handle it). It's good exercise hauling around 10 more extra pounds and getting some much needed fresh air during the day.

Little O just waking up after getting back from our walk. He is nice and snug in there.

I love this time of year!! The crisp air and the changing leaves, wish it would stay this way for awhile!

Random Pictures

On Saturday Deke and I decided to hold a little photo shoot in the backyard with all the fall leaves and Oscar. He was so good to just let us snap a ton of pictures. It was fun to cover him in leaves. We have decided that we take way too many pictures of him. We just can't get enough of his cute face! Is it true that you always take more pictures of your first child than any other kid you might have?

Oscar is starting to like his bath hooray! The last few times he has been really good with no crying. He doesn't like to get out and get lotion on though. He is getting to be such a big boy!! As long as we talk to him and make funny noises he seems to enjoy the warm water on his bum.

The other day I decided to just put Oscar down in his boppy in front of the TV (horrible I know but a girl has to shower atleast once a day). After my shower I went to check on him and he was talking and kicking his feet at the TV. It was too cute. I even got to blow dry my hair and do makeup all at one time. I can usually put him down in the boppy and do a 30 min workout DVD. I think he thinks his mom is crazy as I jump all around him and do situps next to him on the floor. I can't express though what it does for me to get just a little 30 mins workout in once a day. Makes a world of difference for me mentally! Now if only I could get in a couple of runs a week instead of just on Saturday.

My Very Own..

Come Back Cup! Deke now says I am officially white trash! Let me explain the story. There is a gas station in town the Weigh Station that has the BEST fountain Diet Dr. Pepper! So one day he asked if I wanted a drink. He proceeded to tell me how they call the refillable mugs "Come Back Cups!" I could not stop laughing. Who had ever heard of this? I explained that we just called them mugs. So this morning Deke comes back from Maverik with are very own Come Back Cups! I feel so special! He must love me huh.

Hey Rachel are you jealous?

Oscar's Blessing Day

Derrick blessed Oscar on Sunday and did a great job. Oscar did really good and didn't cry! O was so nervous that he would be one of those babies that screams the whole time. He barely made a peep towards the end of the meeting. Mom and Dad we sure missed you! Thanks to all those who came or attempted to come (the Clark's had quite the morning).

Of course Derrick wasted no time changing out of his suit.
My 2 sisters who live in the state that could make it to the blessing. It must be said Alayna and I were a little nervous that Rachel was going to miss it, but she arrived in plenty of time.

Sneak Preview

So the other day I was doing a little shopping at Walmart and came across the cutest little costume for Oscar. He is going to be a Tiger! We had to try it on him and take some pictures a little early. It will be interesting to see how much more he fills it out by Halloween.
