Star Of Mommy's Blog

Champ seems to be contemplating being the current tiny star of my blog:

My mom is putting my baby photos on the internet? Oh my.

Month One

We made it a month! How did a month go by so very quickly? It really came as a shock when I realized that Champ was a month old already! So, as any dutiful parent of three would do, I pulled out my camera and took a ton of photos, in hopes that made up for the lack of photos taken all month long.

I am going to do my best to get a photo of all the boys together each month, and I'll show another group shot on the first of May, as I am going to try to get in the routine of doing it the first of each month. I've had a lot of online friends to this and it has been super cool to see all their kids change though the years and I'd really love to have the same type of photos.

So, without further ado, here are photos of Champ at One Month old:

Photos of Champ

Hi all! So, today was Champ's due date-that is a little crazy to realize since it already seems like he has been here forever and has gotten so big already since leaving the hospital (he is already at 7lb 10 oz, and had dropped to 6lb 15 oz) Since it has been SO LONG since I put anything on here, I thought I would share some photos!

Here is me on the 23rd, the very last belly shot we got. Champ came 3 days later and you can check out all the adorable photos below. I sorta miss being pregnant; but at the same time, it is very fun to sleep on my stomach again!

So far, Champ is an amazing baby-all calm until time to eat or poop, which is just AWESOME. Last night and the night before he actually when 5 hours at one stretch; a nice break from the around-the-clock 2 hour feedings he was demanding. I'm hoping this nice trend continues; we will find out tonight!

Little Dude and JR are in love with him and very proud to help out; so far we have had quite a nice adjustment to becoming a family of 5-and partly because we have such amazing friends and family that have brought us dinners and helped us out so very much over the last two weeks.

OK, now for cute photos:

Here is Champ on his birthday, 3-26-11. He was born at 5:55am  at 7lbs 9 oz and 21 inches long. (my contractions started at 4am; I am very glad he didn't come in the truck)
Here is Bill and Champ, with Bill being silly and staging his pose to act like Champ's and predict our future for the coming weeks. Even though it is staged, I love this photo :)

Here are our three boys! To get Champ's jaundice numbers down quickly we had to do formula and breastfeeding, so Little Dude and JR got to help feed when they came to see us Sat. night.

Here is one very proud Papa and  his cute namesake, Champ.

So, that is all the news around here-I will work hard to get on here more often now that we are kinda getting a new normal going on around here. Now I need to hurry and clean before Bill gets home so it looks like I did "something" today.

Surely you guys all do that too, right? Right?

The Champ Is Here

Our little Champ was born on 3-26 at 5:55am-after having a few contractions on and off throughout the day Friday, labor started around 4am with regular contractions at about 5 minutes apart, and we got checked in at the hospital at 5am-10 minutes after my water broke our Champ was here.

I have to say, I am a huge fan of fast deliveries, especially after being able to get into a nice hospital bed with my doctor, sweet hubby and some awesome nurses there to help. Hurray for not giving birth in the car!

All is well and we are settling in quite nicely as a family of five, thanks to the amazing help from my mother in law and all our friends.

AND I will eventually get one of the hundred cute photos of Champ on here, I just keep forgetting to bring the camera downstairs to download them all to the computer; thus, no photos for you guys yet.

He is super cute though, with a head full of blonde blonde hair and deep blue eyes that are already starting to turn lighter blue. Ohhhhhh cuteness!

Talk to you soon (and hopefully I'll have some photos on here next time).
