Sister was caught on camera being super sweet to brother today! I think it's official--she likes Briggsy bear! Now that I'm mentioning nicknames we have a few around here...Piper is referred to as sister, sissy, sister pants, and Piper swiper! We call Briggs, brother, Briggsy bear, and bubby (not much though b/c she thinks bubby is the 'thing' that was in my tummy and Briggs was not that 'thing' in my tummy!!) Oh, and a door-to-door salesman that just came to our house referred to me as a domestic goddess instead of a stay-at-home mama so I'm digging that nickname right now! ...Now, how can I teach my kids to treat me like a goddess...hmmmm...:-)
Notice the red dot in the middle of her forehead! No, we haven't changed religions or cultures...a friend hit us with something at church on Sunday! ha! Lovely for Christmas pics! :-)
This is Briggs' new hobby--chewing on his fists! I think teething has begun. Boo to the hoo! I want him to stay a gummy grinned baby forever! Well, maybe not forever but longer than they do!!
9.5 weeks here! Last week at his 2 month appointment he weighed 15 lbs, 4 oz and measured 23.5 inches long. His weight was off the charts and height was in the 95th percentile but his head measured in the 25th percentile...not to worry though. The nurse said that was normal!
Briggs just moved into size 3 diapers last week and I'm already thinking we need to move him into size 4's real soon! Yikes!!!! Piper stayed in 3's forever! He's so close to sleeping through the night and when I say sleeping through the night I mean 6:30 am! Last Thursday night he slept until 6:30 then we had two nights in a row where he didn't make it, then two more nights of sleeping until 6:30 and then last night it was 5:30 am again! Ugh! At 15 lbs I think he can do it!! Most nights he sleeps until 5:30 at least. I put him down at 7:30 pm and he goes right to sleep then wake him to feed at 9 pm and then he goes right back down until morning. Piper was sleeping through the night by now so I'm rooting for him to hurry!! But, I'm in no hurry for him to get bigger!! Stay small!
