Kimbosue's Blog has MOOOOOVED!

**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

Memorial Day and Updates

So I am either a bad blogger or a good mommy....either one could apply, but I'll go with being a good mommy as the reason for my bloggy absence. Miles keeps me hopping!

I've missed uploading 3 weekly pics already....so here are weeks 4, 5, and 6. He is growing like a WEED! He looks like a little man!! Holding up his head for 1 or 2 minutes at a time, focusing on things, listening to our voices and sleeping 5 and 6 hours straight through the night. A few of these times was because Mom was too tired to wake up on time, but Miles didn't wake up either so I guess we both needed the sleep!



Memorial Day Camping was fun this year. I can say once you go lakehouse, you never go back. I don't think we'll be able to tent camp again! For the weekend, it was Grammy, Grampy, my aunt and uncle and us. Sister, bro-in-law, and cousin came up for the day on Saturday. A group of us went out Saturday on Dad's boat and caught 54 bass. Sunday another group caught 61 bass. So needless to say, we had a big ol' fish fry Sunday night! Miles made our pic, but he didn't go out fishing. It was way too hot for his little head so Aunt Betty stayed home to babysit. Don't worry, she didn't mind a bit. She hates fishing so she was all for it!

This was Miles' first boat ride. He pretty much missed most of it due to him napping. He was so cuddly in the lifejacket and then add the wave action and he was done! I can't wait for us to get to take him on many more boating trips!

This is my favorite pic of the weekend. The middle porch had a rocker and a swing. Anytime Grampy held Miles, this is where they went. They love each other so much and Grampy is so proud of his grandson!

I said he was growing like a weed? Well, remember when this shirt used to fit? Oh my little baby is growing up!!
Breastfeeding is still going well. My biggerbras...com bra is en route and should be here today. A G cup for crying out loud! Thursday is his 2 month (really 7 weeks) appointment. I am going to ask the doctor when we can cut out his middle of the night feeding. Its obvious he is able to sleep for longer than 4 hours at a time now and he is gaining weight so I don't think that will be an issue. Any other questions I should be asking?
My maternity leave is offically over so today is Day 1 of vacation. I am taking 3 weeks in addition to the leave so my first day back will be June 22 - also the day of my 6 week post-partum appointment. WHAT! Oh yeah, I forgot to make my appointment early so I called today and the main office doesn't have an opening until July and the Pearland office until the 22nd. So not exactly 6 weeks, but it'll do I suppose.
Our babysitter is coming to meet the Little Man on Friday. I really hope they get along well and he takes to her easily. We have been giving a bottle every now and then or when Mommy is out with the girls. He has zero issues with nipple confusion so that's a blessing. He will also be staying with her for 3 days before my official back to work day to get used to things at her house - not all day, just a few hours.

I hope to be blogging more often, but with only 3 weeks left with my little booger, maybe not TOO often... speaking of, he is waking up from his nap so I must bid you adieu.
Until next time....

3 nice things to say...:

Oh he is just beautiful. I'm glad you guys had a nice trip, last weekend we took Coy out on the boat for the first time but he didn't like his life vest. I love the updated pics. Have fun the next 3 weeks...I can't believe it's been 6 weeks already. we need to have a play date before you go back to work!
