Months 2 to 4 have been full of smiles, giggles, and grins! It's been so much fun to play with him. Oscar caught this cute pic of him looking all smug in his fish onesie and decided to use it as a motivational reward at work. When a member of his team sells a new RGU (revenue generating unit, such as having television service and then adding phone/internet to your account), he gives them this picture with the caption "Went fishin.' Caught an RGU."
Man he's crazy cute in his bouncer! I'm a sucker for that handsome face.
Ty was never a huge fan of facing inwards in this carrier. He'd think it was time for nursing and would make mouth. We turned him around and he loves it! He looks around and is fascinated by everything he sees, plus the little jostle puts him right to sleep.
He gives this pic out at work when someone gets a double RGU.
I didn't quite get a smile, but I love this cute shot of me and Ty.
In mid July we took a trip down to Utah for Oscar's sister, Julia's, wedding. While there mom borrowed from my uncle Jim the cradle she'd had me in when I was a baby. I loved seeing Ty in it with my own blanket.
Unfortunately he didn't want to sleep in a space larger than his container at home. He'd fall asleep in it, but then would fight going back into it. I had to sleep with him on the recliner like Oscar's dad's doing in the pic on the right. Fortunately both my mom and Oscar's parents had nice recliners with enough space to keep him snug in the crook of my arm.
Here's Ty playing with granny Hunt
I love when he gives this smug look. He looks adorable in this orange striped onesie and jeans from mom.
Great Grandma Flinders found this "I love you" outfit at a gas station.
These are just some of the many, many outfits mom gave us. Thanks mom!
Unfortunately I made the mistake of letting him wear his newborn clothes too long. I stretched them out so much because I was so attached to them. By the time I put him in the next size up, he could barely wear them. This red MVP outfit was one of those. Hopefully a 2nd baby boy one day will get to wear it for longer.
When we returned to the apartment the next day to clean up, the sister missionaries helped us out. I was pretty limited since Ty was being demanding of my attention, but when I put him in the frontpack and started vacuuming, he went right to sleep. He doesn't like when I bend over with it on, so I was limited to window washing and vacuuming.
Our new place!
Sometimes Nibbler joins us. Nibbler likes sitting on the right side of my chest, and even if Ty's feeding on the right, he tries to sit there. He will not move to the other side. That's when I have to kick him off. Sometimes I've even shot breast milk at him to make him go away. But I love it when he sits there as long as Ty's feeding on the left.
Here he is being fed by Hana and playing with daddy. I usually take Ty in to Oscar in the morning for some father son time.
He's such a chunky monkey! Look at those rolls! But since he's exclusively breastfed, I'm not concerned. There are no empty calories in it, and they burn it off quickly once they get mobile.
Up until this day Ty refused to sleep in anything but a tight container. When he fell asleep one evening playing in his gym, I knew it was okay to start putting him in a larger bed. That's when we started putting him in the large bassinet in the pack and play.
He's so cute when he sleeps! He looks like a little porcelain doll.
Fry decided the boppy's not just for breastfeeding.
Mom got us several of these cute jumping beans outfits. I wish I'd taken more pictures of them before he outgrew them (since I'm sure you're all shocked at how few pictures I have ;)).
Being loved by Grandma Jinks and Grandpa Hunt
Having fun and being cute with his toys!
Flying with daddy and playing on mommy's legs in his Varsity Champ outfit. I kept putting these shorts on him without even realizing they went with this particular onesie.
He grabbed Fry's tail and tried to suck on it. Fortunately Fry's a sweet cat and puts up with anything.
Here are some more cute outfits mom gave us. They said 3 month but looked bigger than that so I waited for him to wear them since we already had a ton of 3 month stuff. I was right about most of them, but the octopus outfit in the middle looked bigger than it was. He only got to wear it once and even then it was tight. I need to start taking pics of every one of his outfits since I get so attached to them. I never understood other moms when they would say they were attached to their kids' baby clothes and would keep them even after the baby had grown out of them. Now I do, though my minimalist husband would never let me keep them once we're done having kids. Even if I wanted to, he'd take them to Goodwill while I wasn't paying attention.
He's so adorable in his crocodile overalls, though it is a bit of a pain to get overalls on him. There are so many buttons to deal with while he squirms around. Though the benefit is they prevent the shirt from coming up. He plays with and sucks on his shirts if he doesn't have overalls holding them down.
My little all star!
He's so handsome! He's gonna break some hearts!
More cute pajamas. I love the polar bear footies!
My baby looks so good in green
Just hanging out being cute!
My monkey man in his cute monkey outfits
Sleeping in the pack and play bassinet
Sweet father/son in green and gray.
Crazy about my happy boy!
He's my tiny monster! The click of the ipod camera was enough to send him from peacefully sleeping on the left to my tiny monster on the right.
Jumping in the johnny jump up I found at the thrift store for $7
Mommy's a sucker for that cute face!
Sometimes Ty's chest gets cold from his drooling and spit up if I've forgotten to get a bib on him. When that happens I change him, cover him with a warm blanket, rub him gently and say "Warm, warm, warm, warm warm the baby!" He loves it and giggles like crazy.
The Lawrence ladies gave us this cute outfit set at the Utah shower. I love the frog on the bum!
Oscar's doing "Ty-cep dips!"
Rockin' it out in his monkey jammies!
Lori Vance got us these cute long sleeve onesies and a teether toy.
He loves watching the baby mobile, though it doesn't put him to sleep
He looks so adorable in this bull dog jacket from Aunt Sharon!
And best of all, he wears himself out playing and laughing with daddy! The laugh in this video is the sweetest sound in the world!
Ty slept through the night for the first time today. Unfortunately I didn't. I kept waking up to check on him and absolutely had to pump after 6 and 1/2 hours. Hopefully I can adjust since I'd love to start getting some more sleep.
I finally got the nerve up to try cutting his nails. I made it all the way to the last nail and then made him bleed and cry :(
Ty's started doing this hilarious thing during nursing where he pulls off the boob to smile and giggle at me, especially if I'm smiling or giggling at something. He starts crying when he realizes he's not getting milk anymore. It's adorably cute and incredibly annoying at the same time.
