Charlie is 3 months old!

At 3 Months old, Charlie

Weighs about 11 pounds, 10 ounces
Has had some weight gain issues that we've been working on!
He just started to sleep in his crib- he goes to bed at 5 and is up for the day around 6
His longest stretch of strait sleep during this time is about 4.5 hours, then it's every 1.5 - 3 hours.
Mommy is VERY tired
He eats about every 2 hours during the day
He can stay awake for about and hour and a half - two hours before he needs to go down again for nap
He naps about 3- 5 times a day
He is starting to grab at his toys and is constantly chewing on his hand
He can roll from his tummy to his back, but usually it startles him so I think he doesn't like to do it much
I can see his teeth, I'm guessing by 5 months it'll pop
He still loves to be held, and mommy is obsessed with woven wraps to wear him in
He is a total flirt and loves to smile and coo at anyone who will talk to him
He's crazy drooly, he needs to wear a bib
He can lift one eye brow like daddy & big sister Jess
He's a pretty good mix of his parents, we get about a 50/50 on who he looks like
He's in 0 - 3 month clothing, but it's starting to get too short. He may not be chubby, but he's stretching out!
He is so very loved by his parents & big sisters, and is already growing way too fast!

Charlie is 2 months old!!!

Cannot believe how fast these 2 months have flown by!
At 2 months, Little Dude is:
23 inches tall (50%)
Only 10.10, and the doctor would like to see his weight gain improve
He was going up to 7 hours between feedings at night (only if he was sleeping on my bed), but now I have to wake him every 4 hours to each
Luckily if I put him in his bassinet he's up every 2 :)
Holds his head up really high when on tummy time
Rolled over the DAY after he turned 2 months!
Smiles and coos and talks to anyone who looks at him
Loves to be worn and carried
Mostly naps on mama in the woven wrap
Occasionally naps in the swing
Wears cloth diaper 90% of the time
Still in 0 - 3 months clothes, but out of newborn!
Is finally waking up- and when he's up, he's super alert!
Loves his big sisters, even though they can (sometimes) be a little rough with him...
Dealing with an annoying case of thrush right now
Always has big smiles for mommy
Is the sweetest little boy in the world, and so loved by his mommy, daddy & big sisters!

Bates Nut Farm

We love our annual trip to Bates Nut Farm! (see our past visits here, here, here and our very first time, here It was kinda crazy the amount of things we had to bring now that we're a family of 5, but we did it and got there shortly after it opened.
It was a perfect day, not too hot or overly crowded.

This year Izzy actually rode the ponies with big sister Jess!

Hayride is always fun...

Then we picked out pumpkins- Jess was really into the white ones this year

Love this family picture,

Goofing around in our boots!

Next year we will remember our wagon, pack a lunch, and try to get there before it opens! It was so fun though, and our first fun family outing!

Charlie is One Month Old!

At one month, Charlie:
Is 22 inches long and about 10 pounds
Sleeps all the time, but doesn't do long strethes. 4 hours one time, but usually 2 - 3 hours max
Loves his binkie
Has super duper blond hair
Blue eyes
And a cute smile he is just starting to show us
Took a bottle for the first time yesterday and mommy got to go to the gym!
Wants to be held all the time- we all love the ergo carrier
Big sisters are basically his other mommies, they love helping out!
Has been in cloth diapers during the day since week 3
isn't much of a napper
and not an impressive pooper
but pretty easy going as long as he's being held
So, so loved by his mommy, daddy & big sisters!

Izzy wanted the bear in the picture, too- love Charlie's expression!

Love his Halloween get-up! 

And of course his sisters had to be in the picture, too!

It's A Boy!!!!!

Charles Steven Post was born on Friday, September 7th at 11:10 am at Palomar Hospital in Escondido, CA. Charlie arrived after 9 hours of labor (though mom could argue it was weeks of labor...) measuring 8 pounds 9 ounces at 19.5 inches long.  He was born just an hour after getting to the hospital in a perfect, beautiful and fast natural delivery.
Both mom and baby are doing great, and big sisters Jessica & Izzy are in love.  Daddy's glad that he now has a little mini me around to help support the boys team.

Family Happenings in May 2012

Since I suck at blogging when pregnant, just thought I'd let some photos do the talking of what we've been up to:
Posted by Picasa

At 3 Years Old

Miss Isabella Johanna
Or Izzy J as well like to call her....

At 3 years old she
Talks non-stop, and it's amazing how much her speech cleared up in the last year
Loves to cuddle
And make everyone in our family laugh
She loves to play with baby dolls
And is constantly moving
She claims to like Dora, but she almost never sits through an episode
She weighs 36.5lbs and is 38 inches tall. 90th percentile.  Solid little girl!
She loves to do whatever her big sister does
And she has decided to stop napping.  And sleeping in general. Mommy is going a bit insane (I'm going to keep baby #3 in the crib until college)
But usually she sleeps from 6:30/7 at night until about 6 in the morning
She is a "spirited" child
Loves to eat, but not at meal times.
She is a serious thumb sucker- either one works!
Her favorite foods are lollipops & m&m's, but she does a good deal of eating her fruits and veggies as well
Sucks both of her thumbs
Is coming predominately left handed.  Trying to teach her how to write and cut is a bit of a challenge for mommy!
Loves to play pretend, especially pretending to be a mommy- going to Target.
She's quite the personality, but make us laugh every single day!  Big Sister Jessica, Mommy & Daddy love you so very very much Miss Izzy J!
