My Fiesty One

I want to have a free heart, like this one.
So determined and comfy in her own little skin.

Did I mention that she gave herself a mullet?
Raising a girl in this world can be scary. So it probably doesn't hurt if she has a little fiest.

Wells is Four Months

My little nugget is four months old.
Wells is wearing 6-9 month clothes & size 3 diapers. Big dude weighs over 17 pounds.
He is so precious that I really can't stand it. His little personality is coming out left and right. He's a talker and he loves people.
Wells goes to bed at 7 p.m. and wakes up between 5:30 and 6 a.m. He nurses several times during the night. He takes around four naps a day, one long (2 hours or so) and three short (30-45 minutes). It's a good thing he's cute cause this mama is e.x.h.a.u.s.t.e.d.
He has recently started playing in the bouncy. He also entertains himself on the playmat. But his favorite place is mama's arms. Or brother's arms.
His biggest milestone has been his two bottom teeth starting to come in. He also rolled over for the first time (tummy to back).
Wells, I seriously love you that it makes my heart ache. You are a tresure, sweet boy.

Three Months Old

This baby is delicious.
Mister Wells is changing every.single.day.
My love is wearing size two diapers, six month clothing & weighing in at over 14 pounds.
He is still keeping me up all hours of the night. Can't figure out if it's the reflux, he's hungry or he's just a late night party animal.
He eats every 2 1/2 hours or so during the day. He takes 3-4 naps, ranging anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 1/2 hours. If I hold him, he will sleep all day. I usually start his nap in the rock and play and finish it in the baby carrier.
He is doing new tricks like blowing raspberries and pushing up on his tummy. He loves to chew on his hands. He is babbling more and more. His chuckles are the best.
Happy three months to my bittiest babe:).

Wells is Two Months

Baby boy is two months old.
He's giving size one diapers all they can handle - need to move up to size two.

Wearing size 3-6 months in clothing.
Big, healthy boy. Weighing in at 13 pounds, 3 ounces. Wells is clearly enjoying mama's milk:).

Wells sleeps in a Rock & Play in our room. He wakes up several times a night to nurse and steal cuddles. His reflux is mostly under control but it certainly flares at times. I am still not eating dairy or soy because they seem to trigger spit up and belly pain for him.

He wants to sleep in my arms as much as possible. Thank goodness for ther ergo and moby!
He is still not sure if he likes his swing or his play mat. 
 But he totally loves his big sister.
 He knows her voice. She pats his head.
He adores his big brother too.
And I can't leave out his little brother, George. They both wear diapers. Don't ask;).
Not gonna lie, having three babies is HARD in so many ways. The exhaustion, the messy house, little to no personal time. But I could not imagine our family without Baby Wells for one single second. We all love his big smiles and sweet disposition.
Speaking of smiles...

First Real Smiles

My little love gave me his first real, big smiles today.
Didn't catch them on camera, but I did catch some sweet moments between the Peach and her baby.
 Happy Weekend!:)

My Nugget

Oh gosh, I adore this almost six-week-old nugget.
So does his sister.
Hands away from eyeballs, Peach!
I am hardly sleeping. My house is a mess. And I can't stop calling my kids each other's names.

But I am happy. And thankful that our home and lives are so full.

Finding Time

One of the hardest things so far about having three chitlens has been finding one-on-one quality time with my oldest babies.

I squeeze in little moments with Walker & Warren when I can.

Like pumpkin carving.
Or making leaves into an abstract pieces of art.
And of course she had to show me her water magic show, which basically involved her spilling water all over the kitchen floor.
 Totally couldn't even be mad:).
And then there's the colossal forts.
And bedtime.
These two are growing up at lightening speed. I just pray for grace & wisdom to be the best mommy I can be to them each day.
