Sun’s out, guns out

So much rain this week! Couldn’t resist a tank-romper pic when the sun came out.

What a fantastic week! Mom and Dad came in for the week, Meghan for the weekend. Chris was out of town near Portland doing some mountaineering, so it was Frost family time.

My first week back was sooo easy with my parents watching Arthur. Grandma Linda had Artie ‘talking’ so much! I love them for spending the week here.

This is my last post! I’m so happy I took the time to share my thoughts and pictures throughout these past months. I love that I have ‘my guys’ here and that we will continue growing as a family. Love to you all!

Three Months Old

Yeah for three months! He’s grown so much….
– holds up his head while wiggling his body when he’s on our shoulder
– social smiles at the ceiling fan and occasionally at us
– sleep 4.5 hrs at once on a good night
– kicks at his treetop friends play mat
– makes lots of coos when he is happy…he coos a lot!

Out and About

This last Saturday was Artie’s first race! We came in 3rd stroller…I think there were only like 10, but that’s still really good. Today was more time with my buddy Laurel and Arthur’s buddy Isaac. I’m loving my countdown to back to work!

I put a few bath time pics in too…so sweet!

Evening Stroll

Tonight was a tag team evening…I found a tasty pork tenderloin marinade recipe, and Chris grilled it to perfection! We polished off the last of Chris’s rhubarb pie and then took the little buddy on a stroll down our street.

Earlier today I went to BYOBaby yoga with some of my Amma friends, and then we all had lunch. Many of us are in our final weeks of maternity leave! I’m going to stop this blog once Artie starts daycare in early July (so sad…but I’ll post pics to Facebook more often) soooo I’m going to try and post a bit more until then!

We’re getting some smiles! He loves pumping his legs too. We are still working on neck control, but he is really doing well. He still loves his ceiling fan and it’s getting him to smile!

Long Weekend

We had a great holiday weekend! Arthur got to hang out with family and friends and did great with all the people and activities. Chris and I got a lot of time together too, as Art is becoming quite the napper.

I recently finished my mom/baby class at Amma in Edina. I met some great women and their babies, and really enjoyed having a place to talk with new moms about all the change taking place. I recommend this class to any first time mom. 🙂

I have staying home down pat! He is on a pretty good routine now, and I am getting good at predicting his moods. We eat, then he’s active and we play for about an hour, then he naps…repeat! I get my walks/runs in usually during his active time most mornings. I’m not looking forward to going back to work in 2.5 weeks! Arthur and I have been regulars at the lakes lately…cross your fingers for continued great weather so we can make the most of my time off!

10 weeks

We had a great Friday today! Chris took the day off and we went for a great (but cold) walk around the river and out to lunch. Chris and Artie had a great morning together too, while I slept in.

Arthur passed the 10lb mark this week, and we think it’s all head! He’s such a treat. I have 4 weeks of leave to go and we are going to make them count.

Pictures from the past two weeks!

Two Months!

Arthur is weighing in at 9lb 8oz at his two month checkup. He is at the very start of smiles and coos…still likely gas initiated vs being intentional. He can follow things with his eyes. He has outgrown his newborn outfits and is on to the 0-3s!

Yeah buddy!

Big guy

Arthur is growing great…moving out of newborn clothes into the next size. He’s getting little baby rolls on his knees and elbows. So cute!

His long sleep stretch is about 4.5 hours over night. He has entered a crazy fussy time each evening, but eventually he works out of it. Every morning he is pretty awake, and I can get some tummy time in and also Skype with grandpa and grandma Frost.

Happy Easter!

Our professional newborn pictures came in this week…we love them! Arthur is up to 7lb 6oz and still growing. His due date was 4/22, prob would have been an 8lb baby if he had gone full term.

It was a great week with Grandpa Bob in town!

Family visits

Lots of family visits this past week…
– Brother Rick and family, sister Laura and family
– Mike and Nancy were the first to officially babysit Saturday night while Chris and I went to his end of year ski patrol banquette. Chris was honored with a 10 year service award, and a First Aid Provider of the Year Award…Chris nominated me for the ‘angel’ award, given to a loved one that lets their patroller spend a lot of weeknights and weekends away at the ski hill. It was a lovely write up, very sweet for him to recognize me. 🙂
– My Dad is in town all week to visit and help my sister move into her new house!
