Newborn Diapers

Well, I think we may have purchased our last bag of newborn pampers last night. At least that's what I'm thinking right now. Landon's still wearing newborn clothes (most of which are still a little big.) Speaking of diapers, Pampers Swaddlers rock! I'm not so much a fan of Huggies...but I have heard that the Target brand is pretty good, though they don't carry newborn, so we'll have to wait to see.

I'm also on my second box of breast pads - now that's an expensive habit. But what are you going to do? You have to buy them...

Little stinker was fast asleep this morning so I decided to get up to pump, man the mornings hurt. Of course, as soon as I got situated, Mr. Landon decides to wakes up. Its like they can sense when we've started something we need to do without holding a baby - pumping, going to the bathroom, eating, taking a shower. They're like, Wait, I sense that I'm not the sole center of attention now - I better wake up and start crying, get that attention back.

Oh, and on our shopping trip to Wal-Mart last night, I found mylicon that's dye free. Hello - good idea. Who thinks its a good idea to dye infant medicine pink? Are you crazy? We got another set of socks too...the Carter's Child of Mine socks are great. They actually stay on Landon's skinny little feet.

Man - I type great one handed, huh. I hope computer screens can't damage an infants eyes, because Landon will be in trouble.

Thank goodness the weekend's here. It will be nice to have daddy at the house for the day.

So, we're gearing up to start feeding one bottle meal a day. I've been pumping for the past couple of days (man does it feel good to be empty.) I can not believe how many bottles / nipples we have to choose from. My sisters have used the disposable playtex with all their babies, so I assume we'll just go with that. Bryan's going to give Landon his lunch meal starting Saturday. Hopefully that will go well, we only have 3 weeks until I'm back at work, so we need Landon to get adjusted to a bottle soon.

Here's my sweet little boy in his hoodie - it was actually cold enough to wear this in April - nice.

He is so sweet and you can tell, he is getting chubbier. Yay, all the soreness is paying off, my baby's gettin' fat. =-)

One Month

Landon's four weeks. So, its basically been four weeks since I've posted - ha.

I love being a mother, most of the time. I have had a few painful nursing, where I really wished men could produce milk, but other than that, love it.

Landon's a great baby. He hardly ever cries, and if he does, its easily remedied. Since about two weeks he's been able to hold his head up and turn it to either side, while laying on his belly. Just in the last week, he's started following his toys and trying to hold them. He found his thumb about two weeks ago, but that entails putting his other four fingers over his eyes...

Easter was fun too. We met my cousin Kim and her family. Landon was still in preemie clothes for that. We went to a park, had some lunch and the kids hunted eggs.

We had a crawfish boil on Saturday, but Landon must have been going through a growth spurt, because we spent basically the whole day in the bedroom nursing.

He is just too cute. He's already getting chubby. His arms and legs are getting some fat on precious.

Okay - so I know that wasn't much of an update, but its a start.

Website with Pictures

Hey - we're going to put all the pictures in a shutterfly collection:

He's doing great. We're on the search for premmie clothes, he was down to 5 pounds 9 ounces and maybe has lost a little more since that weigh in. All his clothes swallow him right now. But he's still just sooooo cute. And such a good baby. He's asleep with his daddy in bed right now.

I promise to write more about my EASY (rubbing it in) delivery later.
