He's mastered the pout...

The past 2 months

We have had SOOO much fun the last 2 months. They have been the hardest, most tiring, most rewarding 2 months ever. Reagan is such a joy to have. He definitely keeps me on my toes. At first it was so hard for me to find balance between being exhausted and taking care of him and being a wife, but I think I've got it figured out now. :)

Reagan had his 2 month check up yesterday and he is now 12 pounds and 22 1/4 inches long! He's in the 50 percentile so he's average size :) I think he's big though! Dr. Shakula said he is very active and alert for his age so I must be doing something right! Some of his milestones are; he smiles at me all the time. Ok he smiles and whoever talks to him and sometimes he just smiles at the ceiling. He can now focus on objects in front of him and he can follow you around. He can also roll over to his side :) Reagan eats like crazy! I can't keep up with him. At nights he eats every 3 - 4 hours and during the day he eats every 2.5! Some days he isn't so demanding and will go 3-3.5 hours and other days he thinks he needs to eat every hour!

He has had some spit up problems. Not like an extreme and it doesn't cause him pain but when we went to the doctor I asked him about it and he said it's a reflux thing but it's not bad enough that he needs medicine. So he said I can either feed him smaller meals MORE often or thicken up his milk with cereal. Although it's only been 1 day he seems to be doing much better! He hasn't hardly spit up at all. Hopefully he will decide he can stay fuller long now with the cereal in his milk :)

Reagan is most definitely a Mama's boy :) I love it except when I don't feel well! He loves his dad too. He plays with Ben and it's so cute. If you can't tell from my post Reagan is a spoiled little boy but I can't help it. He's just too cute!

Oh and we've been house hunting... We've found 1 we really like but are undecided on if we want to make an offer on it. It's in Taylorsville but Bangerter is in it's backyard! It's really not noisy in the yard though but we just haven't decided. Our Realtor is being great and patient with us even though I swear she'll probably end up showing us the whole salt lake valley but hopefully we will find "the one" before she does. :)

Ben is doing AWESOME at US Bank. He's hitting bonuses and doing so well. I'm so proud :) He loves it there and I love that he's got bankers hours :) Also the people he works with are so much fun. I love them too and of course they all adore Reagan!

The house hunt has begun

Ben, Reagan and I went house hunting saturday. We found one we really like and we will probably put an offer on. It's in Taylorsville. It needs some tlc. The bathroom is so outdated and ugly and the kitchen will need to be updated sometime soon but we really like it. :) Hopefully we will get it, but it's a short sale so we are still looking for other homes. :) I'll keep you posted if we find the one!

Oh and here is my cute son. 6 weeks old!!!

Baby Fun :)

Okay so being a mom is the best job ever. He's so fun and cute and I just love it. He LOVES baths. I fill up the tub and hold his head and he moves his arms and legs around and just loves it. He is now 6 weeks old 9 lbs 14 oz and 21 inches long :)! My baby is getting big!! He finally fits into size 1 diapers so no more buying newborns! He's normally a very good baby. He does get kinda fussy at night but I think thats normal. He smiles when you talk to him and can focus his eyes on things now! We just absolutely love Reagan.

We are starting our house hunt on Saturday :) I'm excited and can't wait to get into our own house! Wish us luck!
