Living Life One Handed

So yeah, I'm a mom! After 5 years of infertility treatments and heartache I'm a mom to the most perfect little boy that ever lived. So perfect in fact that I can't put him down! (hence the title of the post and the one handed typing that has become habit.)

I hope to be able to post my/his birth story soon, I need more than five min and more than one hand. :) In the mean time lets just say it was long, and used alot of drugs!

So lets start where we are, my Connor-bear or CB (as I will refer to him in this blog) is a month old. It's amazing to me how fast time goes by. I would always hear other parents say this and always thought they were full of it, now I know that this is the truth.

So lets hit the stats shall we?

Eye Color: steel blue
Hair: Full head, straight and dark brown
Length: 23 in
Weight: 7.7 pounds
Milestones: Smiles, some head control, can almost roll over.
Sleep: between 2-3 hours, sleeps best in Mom or Dad's arms.
Breast Feeding: close to 3 hours, this still hurts me but I have been assured by the Lactation Consultants that he is latching on corectly. I keep waiting for the pain to go away.
Tummy Time: 10-20 min every other day... I try to do everyday but lets face it some days we just dont get there.

So thats it for now... Hope to have the Birth story up tomorrow... we will see.

Oh Pinterest!!!! and other updates

I must say that I am a total addict!!! I am on this page almost as much if not more so than face book!! If you want to visit my page here it is :) http://pinterest.com/jsmcclure/ So far I have done two of my many pinned projects both to be blogged about soon depending on how long the kiddo sleeps! Which brings me to the lack in blogging. The child won’t sleep!!! I take that back, he sleeps like a jewel at night. But there are no naps during the day...none. A problem I am trying to remedy. Now that he is crawling, pulling up and even cruising he gets tired more easily making a nap possible. The down side is that there is about a half hour of crying this precedes the nap.
We had a photo shoot last Saturday at the portrait shop. If you are in the Lexington Area I would highly recommend them. We get to view the pictures on Saturday and I cannot wait!!! I really need to blog more… I want to tell you all everything but I don’t want a huge novel-esc post.
Let’s just say momma will try to do bett…
