TIME

There is nothing more attractive than watching your husband as a father. I could just sit and watch these two interact for forever. It melts my heart every time! 
Over the past few days, Alex and I have been looking at pictures of Calvin when he was a newborn. Time is such a crazy thing. It literally seems like yesterday when we found out we were pregnant, and now we have a 5 month old (well almost). The lyrics to a song I grew up with keep rolling through my mind.

I wish I could save these moments,
and put them in a jar.
I wish I could stop the world from turning,
keep things just the way they are.
I wish I could shelter you from everything
not pur and sweet and good.
I know I can't, I know I can't,
but I wish I could.

FLOG WEEK 4: PINTEREST EXPERIMENT

I can't believe flog is already over! I had such a blast making these videos, that I have decided to take the plunge and have videos on a more regular basis. I may eventually make a schedule, but for now I'm just going to post them when I feel like it. 

Just a warning before you click play, I pretty much just complain the entire video. I wish this hairstyle would have turned out better. But like they say, you win some, you loose some. And this was definitely a loser in a big way!
Let me know if you have any particular videos you would like me to do! I'm pretty open to doing anything. Well maybe not anything.

Other flog videos.

REUNITED

For the next week (or so) Chris has come down from Winnipeg for a visit. Can't believe that last time she was here Calvin was only a couple weeks old. Time just keep going faster and faster.

FLOG WEEK 3: EVERYDAY MAKEUP ROUTINE

This week I pretend like I am a beauty guru and tell you how I put makeup on my face. If you want to know how I do my makeup everyday, go ahead and watch. I was pretty terrified at making this video, but the whole point of me participating in the Flog challenge is to do things that are outside my comfort zone. So what the heck! Why not attempt to do something that gives me the heebie-jeebies?  I think it turned rather well (if I do say so myself).

CALVIN: 4 MONTHS

Age: 4 months/17 weeks

Weight: 16-17 lbs. We're going to the doctor this week so we will know for sure then.

Clothing: 3-6 (a bit tight, so we will be changing him to 6-9 this week)

Sleeping: We transitioned him into a new swaddle (his old swaddle was too short for him), and he now wakes up at 5-6am for a quick feed then goes down until 8:30-9am. He is still going down at 9pm and since he now takes a soother we can out him down while he's awake and he goes down by himself. He now has napping routine: one hour nap at 10:30-11, two to three hour nap at 2, power nap at 7, bed at 9. We'll see if it continues (fingers crossed it does)

Baby Development: He now has complete control of his hands. He is able to grab onto toys and bring them to his mouth to suck on them, etc.

Likes: Sophie the giraffe, sucking his thumb/fingers, the Indiana Jones theme song (he adores when I sing it to him), "gurgling"/talking, being bounced, being held in the football hold.

Other: Grandma Baronins is coming down for a week starting Thursday. We couldn't be more excited to have her visit again. Still sucks that Rocky isn't able to join her because of work, but we plan on making the most of her visit.
