I've been thinking about making some changes to the blog.

Specifically, writing more. You know long posts.

Why you ask?

Some of my favorite blogs (especially when I'm feeding the small lad at 4:00 in the morning and trying so hard not to fall asleep) are the wordier ones. (Of those five links I only know one of them in real life!) Not just wordier, but honest, ones where you feel a connection to the writer.

However I'm torn. Because I'm a fairly private person. I really only open up to my close friends. It's kind of weird to think of writing more about my life knowing anyone can read it. But who are we kidding?! It's only close friends and family who read my blog anyway. If we were able to sit down and chat like we do when we're together, I'd share what is going on in my life and heart. So why not do the same, despite the distance?

Also, I'd like to chronicle more of Tedmundo's life. We do stuff, he learns stuff, he does new things and I have yet to record any of it beyond photos, emails to family and this here blog. And that's not much when I think about how momentous this time in my life is.

I was going to ask if you'd even be interested in reading more instead of just seeing pictures, but I figure if you don't want to read you don't have to. You can still look at cute pictures of my little chubba.

So I'm going to try it.

Disclaimer to make myself feel better: whenever I sit down to write longish posts, I get very self critical and try to be clever and make my writing engaging and then things come out all wrong. To correct that I need to write. Just write and let voice and self come through as they do and stop trying for a Pulitzer of Blog Land. So bear with me as I figure that out.

I've been working on the birth story post. Talk about personal. Jump right in with both feet I guess. No promises as to when that will finally be posted. And no promises as to how often I'll write. I'd like to say at least once a week as a sort of week-in-review. But if there is one thing I've learned from being a mom for 2.5 months it's that the best laid plans tend to be just that: plans.

So happy reading?

2nd mesaversary

My little guy is no longer so little.

And he's now 2 months old.

The glory of the chub is not given full justice in these pictures. We had to go out and buy new white onesies for him since he outgrew all the others. The one in the photo is size 6 months so it's kind of big and makes him not look as chunky. Alas!

He clocked in at 12 lbs even and 23 3/4 inches for his two month check up. But that was six days before he was two months old. On the actual day, (we had the Breastfeeding Support Group that day) he was 12 lbs 10 oz. Um, yes. Gone are the days of weekly weigh-ins with the pediatrician. She was very pleased with his growth. And how strong he is. And how beautiful he is.

He wasn't very excited about the photo shoot. He was super chill, but not very smiley. I think he was wondering why I wasn't putting him down for his nap.

Ha! I crack myself up!

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear.

Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair.

So Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't very fuzzy.

Was he?
