15 weeks...

Well, this will probably be my last daily events posting. I decided to try to write down everything we have done and Nate has done these past 100 days. Maybe now we can just focus on individual achievements, or just a weekly summary.

Nate is such a fun kid! He's having fun now holding his toys, standing, playing airplane and just being much more observant of his surroundings. I also caught him turning 90 degrees when sleeping - he's now waking up in a different spot than where I left him!

We did some volunteering this week - to help out with the Texas Alliance for Life dinner. Just helping out a couple days for a few hours really wiped me out. It was confirmed to me that my calling, my vocation, is to stay at home with Nate. I am truly in awe of mothers who work all day and take care of their kids. Even more of those who work from home - it was soo difficult getting anything done! Thank you Ryan for giving me the opportunity to stay home with our son!!!

Nate is sleeping much better now. I'm pretty lucky. He's still in his pack 'n' play in our room. For all you experienced parents - how long did your kids stay in your room? We don't co-sleep, but it is just easier to have him close around.

The days...
Day 98 - Whoop!
Day 99 - went on a walk with Mrs. Nicholson and Thomas. What fun we have!
Day 100 - what more can I say - 100 days old! yea! Also had our first diaper explosion - through the diaper, outfit, blanket and mommy. Went straight to the bath. Daddy also left today to go camping with Uncle Justin. Kelly neni and Aunt Danielle spent the night - what a fun time we had!!

the pics...to come soon! need to get 'em off the camera!

I'm one of those crazy mommas that kept them in our room until they were 6 months. But, then again, only one of my four children slept through the night at that age!! My philosophy is that they're only little once. If you want to keep him in your room as long as you can, go for it girl. Soon enough, he'll be asking you not to hold his hand on the way to school :-)

Rora started sleeping in her own crib at 2-1/2 months old, which is when she began sleeping through the night long enough that I wanted to stay awake after she went to sleep. I didn't want the noise and lights of us being awake to wake her up.

I'm so glad you are loving staying at home with Nate. I love my job, but I go back and forth on that issue...

Do you know "Chloe Anne Schmidt"? It shows as a popular item on your "Ligit Search" (and I have no idea what that search is). Is that relevant to your blog? Or just a search engine? It's just weird b/c I know she passed away from cancer a week or so ago at the age of 7. My mom knows her grandmother from church.

Kristy, I think someone searched for it from my blog. Also, Kim (who has 2 links on this blog), has posted a couple times about it on her blog, so mine may come up in a search.

The 3 month hurdle is the best to get over...babies are usually in a routine by then, and sleeping in a predictable pattern, not though the night necessarily, but enough that you don't feel like a zombie anymore.
Keep him in your room as long as you want, they're only little for a short time!
