Casey's Dr Appt

This past Thursday was Casey's 2 month check up. He's 22 1/4 in long and 8lb 10 1/2 oz. His weight still isn't on the curve that it should be, but he's gaining weight now, so the dr was happy with that. We increased the dosage of his acid reflux medicine just a bit. He had to get 6 vaccines... 3 in one leg, 2 in the other and one oral. He did very good with them; drank up the whole oral vaccine and didn't even notice the first shot. There were 2 nurses, so they did the 2nd and 3rd at the same time and then did the 4th and the 5th at the same time. He didn't start crying at all until the 2nd and 3rd shots and stopped as soon as I picked him up. I was very impressed, he did much better than Piper did with her vaccines. His only side-effect was that he was sleepy and lethargic... not even a fever this time around! Here's a picture of him after we got home with all his band-aids covering his battle wounds.

Last night I helped out JoJo at the Playhouse Disney Dance Party. When I got home from work I walked in the door to find this on the couch!

2 Months Old

Yesterday Casey turned 2 months old! He is smiling a little more everyday. He loves being held and cuddled and loves his big sister. He's doing much better eating and his acid reflux is a little more under control. He loves doing tummy time on Mommy's legs and is doing really well holding his head up. His 2 month check-up is today, so I'll update again after that.

Just a Couple Things!

Casey has Godparents now! Both of the people we wanted to ask have made trips down since Casey was born. One of those visits was last week, so now that we have asked both of them, we are excited to officially say; Casey's Godparents are Jen and JJ!

I'd also like to say that.... We have a thumb-sucker!

Piper Makes an Attempt at the Macarena

Last week (Tuesday) we went to Downtown Disney to meet JJ for a little visit. Mom and Dad and Aunt Pam and Uncle Marty decided to come too. And we were lucky enough to see Katie for a little bit too! While we were waiting for everyone to get there, we took Piper to the dance party. She had a lot of fun jumping and shaking. But she had a little trouble following the actual steps... especially wit the macarena!

I just realized that I never posted these pictures! The day before Casey was born we took Piper to Gatorland. We wanted Piper to have one last special trip as an only child. We really enjoyed it and even considered getting annual passes, but we decided to wait on the passes since we didn't know how often we'd be able to make it after Casey was born. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time. Piper even got a stuffed gator on the way out that she named Al.

Check out all those gators!
At first she wanted nothing to do with this baby gator, but as we stood there chatting with the guy, she decided to pet it and then she didn't want to leave!

A Little Fresh Air

Today has been a long day. Casey has wanted to be held all day and I've had a headache, so I haven't been able to get anything done. So this afternoon, I grabbed a blanket and took the kids outside for a little bit. Casey didn't want to lay on the blanket at all. He just wanted me to hold him, but he seemed to enjoy the nice breeze. Piper was excited to get to run around for a little bit, and she was actually willing to go back inside when it was time. Here's a few pic of our little adventure.

I managed to catch a couple smiles yesterday morning... along with a pouty face!

Casey's First Disney Visit

Yesterday we decided to take Casey to Magic Kingdom for the first time. We wanted to see the new parade and specifically wanted to see Mommy's friend Ashley helping out Alice. When we got there we walked up and down Main Street, took some pictures and then claimed a spot on the sidewalk. The parade was great, we really enjoyed the music and choreography, but felt it was a little lacking in characters. Then we decided just to walk around for a bit. Ashley came up to say hi and to meet Casey up close. And then we headed home.
