Busy Boy

Parker has been busy lately....

Busy hanging with Austin:
Busy playing with friends at Meadows soccer game:
Busy throwing tantrums:
Busy being a Big Brother and helping with Austin:
Busy going on walks with mommy:
and busy going to Birthday parties:

He is keeping mommy on her toes. Everyday has been a new adventure. You never know if he is going to be a sweet little angel or if he is going to give me a run for my money! The last two days have definitely been a real challenge with Parker. He has wanted to do things when he wants to do them although I am busy tending to Austin. I know it will get better...hopefully sooner than later. On another hand, he has grown into a little toddler and no longer a baby. I love him no matter how he acts. He will always be my baby!

Just some tids...

*24mo/2T size clothes

*Size 5 diapers

*Size 6 or 6.5 shoes wides

Weight Check

Thursday I took Austin for a weight check so Nancy could determine what the best amount of his zantac would be best for him. He weighed in at 8 lbs, 14 oz!!! Much bigger than Parker did at 1 month. Parker weighed 7 lbs, 4 oz at a month. Austin is my growing boy. He is almost out of all his newborn clothes and for sure out of his newborn diapers. He is growing so fast but still sleeping great. Last night he managed to sleep from 9 to 1:30 then 1:30 to 4:30 and 4:30 to 7:30 in the bassinet. It was wonderful except for the fact Parker woke up crying and ended up in our bed.

The Two Ring Circus

Last night was definitely a circus at bath time here at the Dehls house! Todd got Parker bathed then it was Austin's turn. I bathed Austin for him to poop EVERYWHERE as soon as he got out! So I called for Todd to help get another towel. In the mean time, Parker was not dressed yet and got up to see what the commotion was. Shortly after, I hear 'uh oh' and find him peeing on the floor. Austin is now crying and so is Parker as I am chasing him while he pees everywhere. We could only laugh at the whole thing. I was so thankful Todd was home for all this or it may have been even more crazy!

Austin's 2 week check-up stats

Height: 20 in.

Weight: 7.4 lbs

Head: 34.5 cm

Ms. Nancy says my boy is perfect! He is growing and thrieving. I asked about his gaging and she said it may be reflux but she wasn't going to do anything unless it was bothering him...well a day later, it started bothering him. I hate to see him hurt so I have started him on a reflux rx that Parker had until Monday comes. I hope he starts to feel better soon.

2 Weeks Old!

Austin was 2 weeks old yesterday on his original due date. So far we are truly blessed with a very content baby that sleeps most of the day only waking up to eat. I can honestly say he is totally opposite Parker. He sleeps and eats great. He has been a lot of places...Meadows soccer game, Mimi and Papi's house, on walks...but usually slept through each place! He is such a laid back child. I am truly blessed to have him and his great temperament! What would I do with another high maintenance child?!?

Passed out during our daily walk!Hanging with my brother as he pokes my eyes!Sleeping while Parker watches Yo Gabba Gabba!


Big Brother is all grown up!

Parker has shown to be a great Big Brother at times since Austin has arrived. He has also grown up in many different ways....looking older, talking more and wanting to do everything himself! He has done very well at school especially during drop off and pick up. There has been a lot less fussing. I am so proud of him. With all this being said he has also had his struggles with the new baby. He constantly is battling for the attention even though he gets a lot of attention. It has been more negative attention lately. He gets into everything he knows he is not supposed to when I am busy feeding or changing Austin. This will definitely be my biggest struggle as well as his in adjusting to things around the house. I hate to get on to him and have very guilty feelings when I do because I know all he wants is to have my attention also.

This week Parker has had a very bad virus which is causing a sore throat worse than when he had strep throat. I feel horrible for him especially since I can only give him Advil for the pain and there is no antibiotic that will cure him...only time will heal this one. Makes me sad. There have been several sleepless nights around here lately because he wakes up screaming and ends up in bed cuddled up with us and not sleeping well since Austin wakes us all up to eat also.

Getting ready to go to school for school pictures!
So happy because Yo Gabba Gabba is on TV!

Parker loves his cousins Madeleine, Meadow and Macy (lol!)
