Our Sweet Journey

I love my mommy and daddy! I slept all night a few nights ago (well from 11:30-5:30). My parents were so happy. I'm gonna try to do that again really soon.

I'm learning to like my bathtime. Check out my big muscle. I'm flexing for the camera. I hear everyone calling me "bigs" I think that means a good thing! Aren't I pretty? My mama tells me that all day long.

All Grown Up

Our sweet girl has reflux. We thought she might have a mild form since she spits up so much (out of nose and mouth) and she often wakes up in pain (and in a pile of puke). We took her to the doctor yesterday and they prescribed liquid zantac. We have seen immediate results and she is doing so much better. Side note...she weighed a whopping 11 lbs 4 oz! Jayden weighed 9 lbs at one month. She is sleeping really well at night...having 4 hr stretches regularly, a few 5 hour stretches and even a 6 hour stretch! She struggles with the late evening time but we are hopeful that will pass with time. Overall, she is doing great. We couldn't ask for a sweeter baby. Oh, and she has given us a few glimpses of her beautiful smile this week. Hopefully we will catch it on camera soon.

All picked out

I decided to pick Jayden's hair out this morning. He didn't like it. I did it anyway. Thought I'd post these for all to enjoy the big blonde afro. I don't think I'll ever be ready to cut his hair.

More Pics

Halloween times handing out candy and playing with Daddy.

I will be putting lots of pics of the kids up so that our families won't miss too much. So beware...I will be plastering the blog with baby updates and pics as often as possible.
This was taken right before her two week appointment. Gotta love the hair bow!
A cute picture of Journey sitting in her "TT's" lap (Demetrius' sister Angela). Who by the way is here with us and has BEEN A HUGE HELP!!!! Thanks again sister...
With a little help Journey loves to suck her thumb. She just hasn't quite figured out how to find it herself. Hopefully soon...


Here is a picture of Jayden on Halloween (thanks for the shirt Julia). His expression is one we have seem often since Journey's arrival. He's been quite defiant these days. We are hopeful that he will return to his fun-loving "chilled out" self before too long!!!
Journey's first bottle...she proceeded to projectile vomit right after she finished. Slightly defeating. We won't be trying the bottle again for another week or so.

Journey's 2 week appointment went well. She is a picture of health. She is in the 90th percentile for weight (9lb 11oz) and 61st percentile for height (still 20.5 inches). Her doctor said she is definitely "over feeding" and I quote "some babies just get carried away." She is still sleeping pretty well but is having trouble during the evening hours not wanting to go to sleep (a familiar story). I am so thankful for her sweet personality and chubby little face! I think she looks more like she's two months old rather than 2 weeks old...
