2 Months

This was a busy month for you! You took your first airplane ride to Granmama's house. You took your first road trip to see Nana, Pappa, Nanna, your great-grandparents, and some cousins. Car riding over long distances is not your favorite thing, but you mostly took it like a champ. However, for some reason, you decided you hated even driving through Kentucky... screamed the whole way! Luckily for us, Kentucky is not that big.

You are eating like a champ, and get up once a night. You are the snuggliest little cuddle bug!

One Month

One month old! I cannot believe how fast time is going by. Cletus turned one month old on his due date, 1/2/11. He is now ready to come out! He is weighing in at a whopping 8lbs 8oz, massive compared to his birth weight. His suture lines on his head are now covered by a nice layer of baby fat, thank goodness! He is right on target in every single way. His personality is starting to emerge, and he is his father's son... chill most of the time, but opinionated! He is simply wonderful! Mommy is loving our new double chin and belly pudge, especially considering how tiny and non-chubby he was when he was born!

3 Weeks

Am I a cutie pie or what?! Mommy and Daddy still do no know what is up with the strawberry blonde hair... but they sure think it's cute when it gets all fuzzy!

2 Weeks

I do not have a good picture, so this will have to do! 2 weeks old on 12/16. First actual doctor's appointment went well, you are now weighing in at 6lbs 2 oz! Yea for regaining your birth weight and then some! You are also 20 1/4 inches long, a gain of just over 3 inches! Way to go! Healthy baby boy. You still eat every three hours, and love to be held. You are sleeping well, eating great, and still make mommy and daddy laugh with the contemplative, serious expression you have most of the time. Big news for the week- you passed your second car seat study, and have now graduated to the 'big boy' carseat! Woo-hoo! Daddy feels much safer driving you places now.

One Week Old

He is still so tiny... 5lbs, 7 oz! Down from 5lbs 12.5 oz at birth. But still perfectly precious! This is a little late, as he was one week old on 12/9!

Cletus- The first week with you home was amazing. The first night was hard with everyone adjusting to the new addition. But, you  You are already growing, and at the end of the week, you were eating 2 oz every feeding. You had some difficulty getting used to sleeping in the pack-n-play, but we made some adjustments and now you are doing just fine. You are wearing preemie sized clothes. When awake, you are the most attentive baby, staring intently at what interests you. You are perfect and Mommy and Daddy are totally in love with you!

Pregnancy in Review

I was not very consistent in posting during my pregnancy. So, just for the sake of having it written down, here it is in review!

1st Trimester- Pretty uneventful. Main symptoms were fatigue (lots!), heartburn, and morning (all-day) sickness. I craved mangoes, bananas, and french fries. No maternity clothes yet! Total weight gain- 5lbs.

2nd Trimester- Again, pretty uneventful. Fatigue lessened at about 12 weeks. Morning sickness disappeared at 16 weeks. Hello insomnia:-) I craved bananas, orange juice, and french fries. I first needed maternity pants at around 18 weeks. Total weight gain so far- 15 lbs. My body pillow became my best friend. Big event this trimester- I first felt baby move on 8/12/10. We found out we were expecting a boy on 8/17/10!

3rd Trimester- Uneventful up until week 35:-) Fatigue started to set in again, most annoying symptom is lots of ligament pain! Still craving orange juice and bananas. Baby is a night owl like his daddy, and is most active after dinner, before bedtime. Total weight gain for entire pregnancy- about 25 lbs.

And, here is the only pic of me pregnant past 20 weeks:-)
