pregnancy hair before and after

During pregnancy my hair changed a lot...

It went from being the darkest black,

to the yellowy-est orange-est blonde,

and every faded grown out color in-between.

After I had the baby I couldn't believe how long and drab it had become. It was all one length and heavy and hot. Most days it was rolled up into a bun on the top of my head because I could not stand it. Plus with a baby, it felt like it just got in the way all the time. As the weeks post-partum went on, I craved a change. The baby weight wasn't falling off as fast as everyone said so I figured I needed a new do to make me feel better. If I couldn't fit into my cloths at least my hair would be rocking right? I was envisioning a cute blonde bob or even do I dare say it, an A-line for the summer. I wanted to chop it off. 



HA! Of course I chickened out! I got a few inches taken off, the color freshened up, oh and side bangs. David loves them, I think they're annoying.... I guess I am not ready to part with my long locks. Maybe next time. What do you think would look good?

3 Months

Dear Remington-
You are a beast child. No wonder my arms are getting buff. (if only I could hold you with my love handles or but cheeks...
At 3 months you are starting to jibber jabber all the time. Your little baby man voice is so cute. You have discovered your tongue and know how to blow bubbles. Anything that you grab goes straight to your mouth. You have a continuous stream of drool on your chubby face. You could spend hours jumping in your Jumperoo. We love watching you play with your toys. You smile at everyone, especially pretty ladies. You love having your diaper changed and when Dad makes tooting nosies with his mouth. You listen and watch intently when I read you your books. You think animal noises are hilarious, specifically "meow meow" and "mooooooooo." I love watching you light up when Dad comes home from working all day. Sometimes I think he is your favorite. I know we're not supposed to give you real food yet, but occasionally I sneak you a taste. I've been putting you in your crib for naps during the day so you get used to sleeping and waking up in a different room. So far it's been successful  and we hope to make the transition to overnight in the crib soon. (I'm secretly dreading that day because I love when your little body curls up next to mine at night.) You are still content during tummy time but are totally disinterested in rolling over. You'd rather sit or stand up than be on the ground anyways. For the past couple weeks you've been sleeping in until 10. Please keep it up don't let this be a phase because i'm loving it. Next week you get to see Mimi, Grandpa and your aunties and uncles. For some it will be the first time meeting you. They are so excited!!! Well, you are awake and making hungry noises so I should probably go feed you. (I swear sometimes I nurse you alllllll day!!!!) Keep growing strong-

My little Reminator has entered into "the teething stage." To say the past couple days has been rough would be a major understatement...and it has only just begun AHHHHH!  Poor baby cries and cries and tries to shove everything he can into his mouth to sooth those sore gums. I've got him on Tylenol around the clock and that seems to help some. Any recommendations?

Remington's blessing was yesterday. David did wonderful and so did baby boy. He was wrapped in the same blanket that David was blessed in 24 years ago. Our close friends and family came to support and celebrate. It was such a beautiful day. I am one proud momma and wife. I love my boys so much.
