Can you believe this is the best one?
Maybe you can help me pick one?
Micah was pretty upset that he was not holding a baby. Wouldn't you be?
Grandmas gets her chance too!

Bevin's room is almost finished! The walls have been painted, the rug rolled out, and artwork on the walls. But we still have a few serious steps to take...like a crib! Ha! Micah is still occupying our family crib even though he has moved into a room with his big brother. So for the interim Bevin is sleeping in her pack and play bassinet as you will see a few photos down. No worries! She has not made one peep about it.
A few items have been hung on the walls. It can be a little intimidating to hang things on your freshly painted walls but sometimes you just have to go for it! I did hang this too high originally and I have to patch one small hole. No worries.
I LOVE the way that the stripes turned out! Don't you?
I also love the simple framed birth announcement. All I did was scotch tape Bevin's birth announcement to a piece of vintage wallpaper. (I can say vintage right? It is a Ralph Lauren pattern from 2000 so it is a decade old. At least it sounds cooler to say "vintage") Then I cut the paper to fit a frame that I got from T.J Max. I originally did it as a temporary fix until I printed the right sized photo but NOW I love it just the way it is. Don't you love how that happens!
Some day a crib will go where the pack and play is now. We are playing around with the idea of getting her a new crib that converts into a toddler bed and letting Micah stay in his crib as long as he needs. Believe me, nobody wants that one wandering the house alone at night. Recently I found Micah in the kitchen chopping the tops off of strawberries with our largest knife. And before that I caught him Windexing the wall with a disinfecting wipe. As soon as I caught him in action he took a big bite out of the wipe! That story ended with extra babyproofing and a phone call to the pediatrician and poison control!
...of her bear mobile.
Talking to them.
Making sure her sheep is close at hand.

Bevin had her 2 month well visit at the pediatrician on Friday!
B's getting to be such a BIG girl! She is already moving past the 0-3 and wearing 3-6 outfits and sleepers!
Her newest tricks include: smiling and laughing at us and her brothers, she most definitely knows her mama's voice, loves her orca whale sounds/sound machine, swaddling still brings her comfort, she has been sleeping a 5 hour stretch in her bassinet in her own room up until this past week as she has had her first cold, and she can kick and punch like nobodys business!
B went from weighing 6 lbs. 5 oz. at her 2 week doctor appointment to 12 lbs. 10 oz. yesterday at her 2 month visit! That is a doubling of weight. Most excellent job my dear! So she went from the 55% on the preemie chart to the 80% on the BIG GIRL chart. Nice.
2 Week: weight-6 lb. 5 oz.
2 Month: weight-12 lb. 10oz.
head size-14 1/2"
I must apologize for the lack of posts as of late! My hands and heart have been full in the bestest of ways!
Grow B Grow!
