2 months

Baby is 2 months already!!!
I think I have decided on a blog name for him.  Jelly Bean (JB).  He is just so jelly and sweet.  
It has been a rough sleeping week around here.  JB was wide awake in the middle of the night or super early every night this week.  To top it off, Hubby traveled all week.  It was a rough week.  PB woke up early a few mornings too.  My Mom had PB over for a sleep over to give me a break which was so helpful and nice.  I did end this week on a good note.  JB slept from 10:30-7:00 am!!!!! It was amazing!! I feel like a human again :)

JB is more awake this month and he coos and smiles like crazy.

He was not really interested in taking pictures this day...

...he kept making his pout face!!  It might be my favorite thing he does. 

It's hard to believe I have been away from here for 2 months.  My house is a disaster and I did get to sew one project and have another lined up that I want to work on.  I have just been enjoying my sweet little JB.  

He has changed a a lot since last month!
one month                                                  two months

Yesterday PB was running around at my Mom's house.  JB kept turning his head to follow where he was going.  I am loving how much they love each other already!!

Batman Cape

I finally did some sewing!!

PB's buddy had a birthday last week.  He is into Batman just like PB!
I thought a Batman cape would be a perfect gift.  
I used black knit fabric and a scrap of grey snuggle flannel for the Batman logo.  I chose knit because I didn't want to finish the edges (knit doesn't fray) and I wanted to to be comfy.  

I used black velcro to close it in the front.  The top I double folded over and sewed it down to have a sturdy neck that would stand up a little.  Also I needed something sturdy to sew the velcro to.  

For the logo, I did an image search and traced onto Wonderunder.  The logo was appliqued on.  

I didn't really use a pattern or tutorial to make this.  I just held the fabric up to PB and cut it based on his height.  The top of the cape is tapered and the bottom is wider.  PB is requesting I make him one with the leftover fabric, so I'll do some better measuring next time. Turns out sewing this week was tricky. I had to do some quick sewing when Hubby held baby at night. The baby didn't want to be left on his own for a few days this week.  He just wanted to sit with me and cuddle.  Luckily that little phase is over and I have been freed from the couch! 

He says hi!!

Yesterday we did a photo shoot at the Bluebell field near our house.  It is beautiful! We go every year to take some pictures. 
Here is a little update. Things around here have been really relaxed.  I have been enjoying the boys and snuggling my sweet baby.  

The baby loves to cuddle and he burrows into me in the afternoon after I feed him and I just snuggle him and enjoy every second while PB sleeps.  

PB has been loving his brother.  Baby started cooing and smiling and PB just loves to talk to him.  

I still don't have a blog name for baby.  I have a few contenders, but I'm still getting to know him. 

I am actually going to do a little sewing project this week. I am pretty excited. I'll share that next week.   

The weather is finally warming up and we have been taking baby on outside activities.  We went to the zoo the last 2 weekends. PB loves our little local zoo.  

Hubby has been working long hours but has been home so we get to see a lot of him. Love that he can work in our basement!

I haven't started exercising yet, but I want too.  It's tricky to schedule with when I am free from nursing and there is a Zumba class.  So far the 2 haven't happened at the same time. 

I also really haven't been cooking.  My MOMS Club has a helping hands program and I have been getting meals from friends 2 days a week.  It is awesome, it really takes a load off my mind.  And we have gotten some really delicious meals!!! These ladies rock :)

So hopefully I will be back a little here and there soon.  For now, I'm enjoying every moment. Well, not so much the ones in the middle of the night when the baby decided he is wide awake and wants to talk to me instead of sleep, but all the other moments. Even the poopy diaper ones :)

We took our first official family pic!! I used a tripod and remote to get this picture. Love my guys!! So happy!!!
