We’re Framing

It was just one of those days … a sunny Sunday afternoon and “Rocket Man” playing as we drove to see the latest developments at our future home.  A lot has changed in six months since demolition.  Luckily, we’ve had the most mild winter Park City has ever seen.  It’s exciting to say we’re in the framing process.  And yet, we still have another 6-7 months until we can call this place our new home.

We loved seeing Prissy run through the hallways and Charlotte twirling in her soon to be bedroom.  John took in the views with Johnny in the Baby Bjorn.  We’re so excited about this new house.  It kind of feels like another child.  We’ve honestly thought about every inch and we’re so thankful for the wonderful team bringing it all together.  It’s an amazing process to be a part of.  The countdown has begun.  We plan to spend every sunny Sunday afternoon taking it all in.

Johnny Turns 6 Months Old!

I sound very cliche when I say this, but I really can’t believe Johnny is already six months old.  It kind of feels like he’s always been around but I also have no idea where the last six months have gone.  He’s just exploded with this adorable personality lately and slowly becoming a little person.  His giggles will get me through anything and I’ll do whatever it takes to squeeze them out of him.  Charlotte is also getting addicted to making him laugh.  I had no idea how full my heart would feel when I see the both of them interact and make each other smile.  I’m convinced Johnny’s favorite person right now is Charlotte.  It’s the cutest little duo you’ve ever seen.  And boy, this duo is the hardest thing I’ve ever done.  I guess that’s where the last six months have gone.

Johnny seems to have a more easy going, happy personality at this age.  I really couldn’t ask for more… well except if he would sleep past 6am.  I think he’s just hungry after 11 hours of sleep (I really shouldn’t complain).  He’s a big boy and it certainly takes a lot of calories to maintain and grow that size.  I just had to get him new clothes again – size 12 months.

A few simple facts about Johnny at six months – he’s sleeping from 7pm to 6am with an occasional wake up in the middle of the night for a bottle.  He’s rolling over, eating rice cereal and baby food, has his first two teeth, is attempting to crawl, needs mama a lot, loves his big sister the most, flirts with pretty blondes, and melts my heart daily with his loving gaze.  I will say that he’s a total mama’s boy and I think I’m okay with that –  basically the opposite of Little Miss Independent Charlotte.

We love our baby Johnny and are so excited to have him part of the family.  I can’t wait to see him develop and become a little boy.  Time is flying and I just hope I don’t forget these long days as a mother of two littles.  I really wouldn’t have it any other way.  We love you, Johnny.  Happy six months!

Johnny’s Firsts

There have been a lot of firsts around here lately and some just need to be documented…

Johnny’s first rollover was on January 5th at almost 4 months old.  I have a video below showing all of his hard work.  He then went on to give us grief for at least a month getting stuck on his tummy.  Glad we worked through that one.

Now onto solid food – one evening Charlotte and I decided to introduce Johnny to his first bite of rice cereal at about 5 months old.  He’s now become a big fan of rice cereal and sweet potatoes.  It’s hard to keep up with this big guy’s hearty appetite.

And last but not least, his first tooth appeared last week on March 2nd at almost 6 months old.  He now has two little teeth on the bottom.    We sure love this little buddy of ours and are so excited about each milestone.  Up next… the big 6 month mark.  Oh my it’s going so fast with the second.
